E-lert - August 2012

Join us on the Road to Emmaus

The eighth annual Missional Church Consultation will be held Nov. 9-10 at Luther Seminary. This year, we'll explore the missional church and global media cultures.

As Christians living in the 21st century, we are truly on a road to Emmaus. Change is all around us--much of it upending all that we have known and held dear. Where are we meeting Jesus in our daily lives? How are media reshaping our relationships, our world and our commitments to reaching out in love and justice to share the Good News? Can we trust our "hearts burning within us?"

This consultation will explore the latest research and theological engagement with these questions, using a variety of media.

Speakers:

Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu, Professor of African Christianity and Pentecostal Theology and Dean of Graduate Studies, Trinity Theological Seminary, Accra, Ghana

Elizabeth Drescher, Lecturer, Santa Clara University

Mary Hess, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership, Luther Seminary

Rex Miller, Author and Speaker
