Mid-Winter Convocation—Translating the Reformation: Table Talks Today

February 1-3, 2017

During his lifetime, Martin Luther would spend time with students conversing about God’s living presence in the midst of the struggles of daily life. The theology that emerged changed the political and religious landscape across all of Europe. Today, people are also faced with political and religious uncertainty; does our Lutheran heritage have something to offer?

We’ve paired Luther faculty with parish pastors to engage some of the issues our congregations are struggling with today – identity, divisiveness, technology, and community. Join these scholars and practitioners for fresh and honest conversations on how our distinctive Lutheran voice is uniquely gifted to speak into our world today.
