Martin Luther’s The Small Catechism was the third treasured book that Norwegian immigrants to America were likely to have brought with them on the ocean voyage. It was a great influence on their life in America.  More than 475 years have passed since the first official translation of this catechism from German into Norwegian.  Using his own collection of Small Catechisms for illustrations, Glenn Borreson traces The Small Catechism through life among the people of Norway to immigrants to America and even into our lifetime.  “What does this mean?” is a question of confirmands sweated in reciting the answer! Enjoy the surprises om the story of this little gem of a book.

 Our speaker, Glenn Borreson is a retired Lutheran pastor (ELCA) who has served congregations in Wisconsin and Iowa. Besides the articles he has written for numerous Christian periodicals, he is the author of six books in several genres from sermons to local history. Anyone who has attended his previous presentations at Livsreise knows this one should not be missed!
