An Afternoon with Katie Von Bora Luther

Spend an afternoon with Kathrine "Katie" Von Bora Luther, Sept 17, 2017, to celebrate REFORMATION 500. Marlene Zenker, Hot Springs, Arkansas, and the wife of the late Alton Zenker, former Bishop of the Central Southern Illinois Synod, ELCA, will be performing a historical dramatization portraying the life of Katherine Von Bora Luther, the wife of Dr. Martin Luther on Sunday, September 17th, 2017 2:00 pm, at First Lutheran Church, 800 N 7th St. Bismarck, ND. A free will offering will be taken. Marlene Zenker, dressed in the austere black clothing of the 1500s, shares her knowledge of Katherine and that period in history. Through much research and reading, Marlene developed her biographical presentation of Katherine, Dr. Luther, and their family. Katherine will tell of her life as the wife of the unwitting founder of the Lutheran Church.

A spunky young lady born of German nobility, she was educated in a convent and became a nun. Feeling unworthy, she fled the religious life. She grew into a remarkable, loving, and industrious woman and a very supportive partner to Dr. Martin Luther. Katherine is portrayed as a very strong woman in character and faith. This is a lively story of unusual proportions. Zenker brings laughter, tears, wisdom, and wonderment into this unique presentation. Join us for an afternoon of with Katie.
