Book of Faith Jubilee inspires everyday people to engage the Bible

From April 29-May 1, congregational leaders, both lay and clergy, gathered to discuss their Book of Faith. Plenary presentations, conversation among peers and practical workshops gave participants practical takeaways they could use to lead their congregations into reading the Bible in engaging new ways.

Plenary presentations were given by Nadia Bolz-Weber, House for All Sinners and Saints, Denver, Colo.; Jessicah Duckworth, Wesley Theological Seminary; Craig Koester, Luther Seminary; and John Roberto, LifelongFaith Associates. Worship was led by Kelly Chatman, Redeemer Lutheran Church, Minneapolis.
