Fall Theological Conference
The Fall Theological Conference will be held October 12-13, 2015 at the Old Sanctuary located at 910 Fourth Street, Brookings, SD 57006.
The conference will start on Monday with registration at 9:00 AM and a presentation at 10:00 AM by Dr. Dennis Bielfeldt on the philosophical theses of Luther’s Heidelberg Disputation. The Augsburg Mission District and Societas Crucis will meet on Tuesday.
The theme for the 15th Annual Augsburg Gathering came from First Corinthians (1 Cor 12.27), “Now you are Christ’s Body and each of you is a member of it.” The Gathering was held June 14-17, 2015, at Peace Lutheran Church in Rosenberg, Texas. Dr. Jonathan Sorum, Academic Dean of the Institute for Lutheran Theology (ILT), was our keynote speaker. Over the course of four presentations on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison (Widerstand und Ergebung) Sorum delivered his paper on “The Search for Non-Religious Interpretation of Biblical Concepts” which will also be delivered in Slovakia later this month. This concept will be part of ILT’s new Doctor of Ministry degree program which will focus on reaching people in a secular age when, as Bonhoeffer put it, people don’t even have idols anymore! We also welcomed new churches and clergy who have joined the Augsburg Mission District of the NALC, adopted our budget for the next fiscal year, and made plans for Augsburg and Societas Crucis to sponsor our Fall Theological Conference in Brookings, SD, on October 12-13, 2015, at the Old Sanctuary. A brochure and registration form for this event is on our website. Read More…
2015 CHAPLAINS CONFERENCE will be held on July 18-24, 2015, at Mount Carmel in Alexandria, MN. Orders will be sent the last week in March. Chaplains should provide our endorsing agent with their current address, their commander’s name and unit address so their orders for the conference can be cut and sent. Care to the Caregives (C2C) will be the focus as we look at the biblical and theological foundation that gives us the strength to minister and the resilience to face the challenges of active duty ministry. We’re looking forward to another dynamic week of being fed the Word of God by Dr. Steve Paulson and Dr. Chris Croghan along with plenty of opportunities to relax, fish, boat, or just enjoy being in the cool and refreshing outdoors of Northern Minnesota. The fellowship, preaching and communion will be fantastic. Read More…
