Web Streaming of September 6 Muhlenberg Day Events

The celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, known as "the father of American Lutheranism," begins at LTSP on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 (Muhlenberg's birthday!) with an opening day of events including special worship, a lecture by the Rev. Dr. Martin Marty, workshops by LTSP faculty and others on Muhlenberg's life and legacy, and more.

The day has proven to be very popular, with most events fully registered. LTSP will be live-streaming the opening worship at 10:45 am and the lecture with Dr. Martin Marty at 1:30 pm. Go to Ltsp.edu/LTSPLivestream to view the live events, or to www.ustream.tv/channel/ltsp-convocations for schedules and recordings of live streamed events. The full schedule for the day can be found here.

If you are not able to attend, please join us online for the special worship and lecture as we celebrate the Legacy of Henry Melchior Muhlenberg on the anniversary of his birth.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As a resident of Einbeck, Germany, I just watched your live-stream transmissions of the Muhlenberg Tricentenary Worship Service and Prof. Marty's lecture.

I am moved.

As a volunteer I am in charge of the historical church books of the three Lutheran Congregations in Einbeck, amongst them the "Neust├Ądter Kirche", in which Henry Melchior Muhlenberg was baptized on September 6, 1711. It humbles me every time to search for other records in the church book, in which Muhlenberg's baptism was recorded.

Thank you for putting the festivities live on the Internet.

Yours sincerely

Gerd Hillebrecht

Gerd Hillebrecht,

Thank you for your comment, we're pleased to share this special event with you and others interested in Henry Melchior Muhlenberg. Edited recordings of Dr. Marty's lecture and Bishop Riley's sermon will be available online in a few days.

I have shared your comment with colleagues here at the seminary, and am going to share it with John Peterson, who manages the Lutheran Archives here in Philadelphia.

Blessings on your work!
