Caught Reading Metro Lutheran

New Concordia St. Paul president caught reading Metro Lutheran

The Rev. Tom Ries, Concordia University’s newly elected ninth president, was caught reading Metro Lutheran next to the Luther statue on the East side of campus. The 12-foot-plus bronze statue has stood on Concordia’s campus since 1921. Luther’s pose is representative of the moment he pointed to an open Bible as the source of his faith, which he will defend as he confesses before the assembly at Worms, “Here I stand; I cannot do otherwise: God help me! Amen.” Photo provided by Concordia University, St. Paul
