Lutheranism in the 21st Century: Who are we and how can our way of understanding Jesus be helpful in this time?
Ever wonder why Lutherans are the way they are? Curious about why E.L.C.A. Lutherans are a mostly progressive church and yet are such a predominately white group? Join with other students for two Wednesday sessions exploring future of Lutheran identity . Whether you consider yourself a Lutheran or just like being in the club, this will be a good time to wonder about the importance of how we talk about God. Pastor Joel will explain how the Lutheran church is being called out of its cultural tradition and deeper into its theological tradition. We think this will be a helpful event to prepare us for the upcoming book study of Pastor Lenny Duncan’s book, Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the U.S.
If you are interested in joining the book study, please contact us for a copy of the book and more information.
