Mid-Winter Convocation 2019

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread:
Food, land, and sustainability

January 30-31,  2019
Luther Seminary

“The heavens tell of the glory of God,” but so many of us have lost the motivation and capacity to see God’s glory in all of creation. Ecological challenges infest every corner of society, and questions of how to care for creation—how to tend and steward all that God has created—often provoke sharp disagreements. Join us as we consider what it means to ask for our “daily bread” from the land and those who tend it. Along the way, we’ll explore food, sustainability, and how to engage each other across deep differences for the sake of all people and all places.
