On Saturday, April 7, we will travel to the University of Chicago Campus where we will meet up with Dr. Ken Sawyer who will first lead us on a docent-led tour at the Oriental Museum before heading to the McCormick Theological Seminary JKM Library. This trip is a follow-up to the Reformation presentation Dr. Sawyer made last October. The Library houses several significant collections, including Luther manuscript letters and printed works, Swedish and German hymnals, several original editions of Luther’s German Bible and many 16-century treatises and pamphlets, and we are working on securing permission to view these materials!

We will travel by van from Knox leaving in the morning at 8:30 am. Our tours will take us into the early afternoon and we are planning on a group lunch in the Campus neighborhood. Like many of the Curious Christian tours we expect to arrive back at Knox around 3:00 pm.
