e live in a time of moral confusion, a time of frequent conflict and little consensus on what constitutes the good life and what we owe to one another.

Even within the Church, there is division and debate over basic claims of right and wrong. For this reason, Christians need to rediscover the beauty of God’s law and why it is, as the psalmist says, better than "thousands of gold and silver pieces" (Psalm 119:72).

Come and join Christ Church Cathedral on September 12-14, 2023, for an in-depth, theological conference of the meaning of the Ten Commandments and how they inform our Christian life and witness today.

his much is certain: those who know the Ten Commandments perfectly know the entire Scriptures and in all affairs and circumstances are able to counsel, help, comfort, judge, and make decisions in both spiritual and temporal matters. They are qualified to be a judge over all doctrines, walks of life, spirits, legal matters, and everything else in the world."

—Martin Luther


he Ten Commandments are "God's righteous rules for life in his kingdom: basic standards for loving God and my neighbor."
