When Rev. Ken Klaus became speaker on The Lutheran Hour in 2001, he became the voice of the longest running Christian outreach program in the world. Every week millions of listeners on radio, Ipods and on-line find inspiration and encouragement from the program.
For two weekends in September, Rev. Klaus will bring his forthright Christian message and endearing storytelling to Canada.
Beginning in Stony Plain, Alberta, a few kilometers west of Edmonton, the radio speaker will join listeners and friends at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, September 21 at 2:30 p.m. for an afternoon of inspiration.
The following Saturday, September 27 Pastor Klaus will be in Stratford, Ontario for Lutheran Hour Live. The program begins at 3:30 p.m. in the Rotary Complex and includes local singers and musicians.
In addition to a weekly sermon and Q&A session for radio, Rev. Klaus writes a daily column distributed by e-mail around the world. Using stories from international news sources and his own experience, he blends his gifted storytelling, humour and insight to give a spiritual spin to daily life.
The Lutheran Hour is an audio program of Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM), a Christian outreach ministry supporting churches worldwide in its mission of Bringing Christ to the Nations—and the Nations to the Church.
