Hein-Fry Lecture 

The Hein Fry Lecture Series grew out of prestigious traditions dating back nearly 40 years in the histories of the ELCA predecessor church bodies. They were designed to stimulate inquiry and discussion at its eight seminaries and throughout the church. Luther Seminary has archived the Hein-Fry lectures given on campus over the last few years. Below are links to several recent past lectures held on campus at Luther Seminary.
