An annual opportunity for clergy to gather

Seminaries, like all professional schools, are houses of "best practices."  Best practices are developed and then passed on to the next generation of professionals.  But most of the best practices taught in seminary were developed for a world that no longer exists. Rolf Jacobson, Professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary, will invite us to think about how the world around the church has changed and to wonder together what a faithful response from Lutheran communities might include, all of this from his perspective as a biblical theologian.

 

In addition to two keynote addresses from Professor Rolf Jacobson, there will workshops led by some of our own pastors on best practices they have discovered for mission and ministry in the 21st Century. Our time together will also be rooted in the means of grace with several opportunities for worship and for fellowship.
