September is “back-to-school” season for young people in general—and “back-to-Sunday-School” season for many young Lutherans in particular.
In this latest “Adventure in Lutheranism,” the Ladies tackle that venerable (though not universal) Protestant Sunday-school tradition: Rally Day, which gathers children and families back after a summer away for the launch of the new Sunday school year. Bri leads the conversation, diving through the murky waters of history in an attempt to understand both how this annual celebration got its start and how it is commonly practiced in churches today.
To learn more, check out the article on Rally Day (referenced by Bri in the episode) in the Congregational Library and Archives’s Beacon Street Diary blog.
