Reformation 500

Reformation 500

Reformation 500!  This fall marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. To commemorate that transforming event, CPC will host a 4-part evening series “A Sustainable Presbyterian Future,” featuring The Rev. Dr. Louis Weeks.

Louis Weeks, the President Emeritus of Union Presbyterian Seminary, currently lives in Williamsburg VA with his wife Carolyn. He has taught and written extensively on the history and nature of Presbyterian and Reformed Churches.

Weeks served as Professor of Historical Theology and as Dean of Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where he collaborated with John Mulder and Joe Coalter to direct the most extensive study yet of Presbyterians in the U.S.A.. They published “The Presbyterian Presence” series of seven books, editing six comprising essays and writing one summarizing the findings (1990-1992). Vital Signs: The Promise of Mainstream Protestantism enlarged the topic subsequently, by invitation from Eerdmans Press.

Others of his books include To Be a Presbyterian (1983,2010) The Presbyterian Source: Bible Words That Shape a Faith (1984) and A Sustainable Presbyterian Future: What’s Working and Why(2012).

Weeks’ latest book is the one that will be studied in CPC’s Reformation 500 series. Each evening will include worship, reflection and conversation centered on his book of the same title.  The series runs Tuesdays, October 3, 10, 17 and 24.

Dr. Weeks has made advance copies of his book available at the author’s price, $8.50.  Purchase yours through the church office.
