Here I Stand (Exhibit opening program)

Join the opening program for the Here I Stand exhibit at United Lutheran Church, Oak Park, Illinois on Sunday, October 8. when Consul General Herbert Quelle, from the German Consulate of Chicago, will give a brief presentation, and when participants will join together in prayer, hear a few scripture readings, and sing a hymn or two. An Oktoberfest reception immediately follows the opening program in the church’s fellowship hall.

About the exhibit

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, United Lutheran Church is hosting an exhibit titled Here I Stand, a collection of 30 museum-quality posters about Martin Luther and the Reformation that will be on loan from the German Consulate in Chicago.

Modeled on the exhibitions that took place during 2016 in New York, Minneapolis, and Atlanta, the Here I Stand exhibit at United Lutheran Church, from October 8 to October 15, 2017, narrates the story of the Reformation and the global impact it has had in the succeeding centuries. Each one of the 30 posters is 36”x24” and will be displayed in a large open area at the rear of the church’s main worship space.
