Bishop’s Theological Conference
September 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - September 25, 2018 @ 12:00 pm
Featuring The Rev. Mark Hanson,
Former Presiding Bishop of the ELCA
“Serving the Gospel for Such a Time as This”
We … need to disengage for a time, to be consciously in God’s presence, to regain perspective, to pray for discernment and strength to move back out in the world with new vision, courage and strength.
— Rev. Mark S. Hanson
“Faithful and Courageous: Christians in Unsettling Times”
The 2018 Bishop’s Theological Conference hopes to be just such a time for all who gather.
Under the theme, “Serving the Gospel in a Time Such as This,” we will explore the personal dimensions of ministry – the inner work we are called to do. We will explore the contextual dimensions of ministry – what we notice about changes in the world around us, about God’s presence, about the “hermeneutic” we bring to contextual study. And, we will explore the public dimension of ministry – our work of proclamation, service, and prophetic engagement.
