Over the years, Pastor Fred Schumacher has created four commemorative pins for the Lutheran Summer Conference at Silver Bay. Today, the first pin, with Fred’s description:
“The 50th Anniversary of the Lutheran Summer Conference in July, 1981. The central image on the pin is Martin Luther’s Coat-of-Arms (often referred to as his Crest or the Luther Rose.) An explanation of his Crest was sent to Spalitan, the Secretary of Frederick the Wise, in 1530 from the Colberg Castle in Germany during the meeting in Augsburg in which the Princes of Germany presented to the Emperor Charles V the Augsburg Confession, the primary confessional writing of Lutheran Churches throughout the world.”
Thank you, Fred!
