Who doesn’t love a good fall festival? And sausages? And pretzels and mustard?
In this latest “How to Lutheran,” Bri (a first-generation Lutheran without a discernible drop of German blood in her) celebrates the German Lutheran cultural juggernaut that is Oktoberfest.
Starting with Oktoberfest’s German (Catholic) origins in Bavaria, Bri frolics through the past and present of this beloved cultural festival, which is observed annually in many American Lutheran churches. She, Sarah, Erin, and Rachel also relive favorite Oktoberfest memories and discuss what Oktoberfest might look like in less homogenous, more culturally diverse congregational contexts.
