Plenary at Mid-Winter Convocation

Mid-Winter Convocation

Mid-Winter Convocation 2018

Faith and Science

Jan. 24-26, 2018
Luther Seminary

Ever since the Age of Enlightenment, there has been a tension between the scientific fields and the world's religions. Today, scientific language permeates all of our media as we grapple with technology, medicine and climate change. Research shows that people tend to hold their religious beliefs separate from their scientific knowledge, keeping us from connecting our worship lives to daily living.

How do we as theological leaders engage in both scientific understanding and faithful proclamation to assist in bridging this gap? Join scholars, scientists, and pastors as we explore the important intersection of faith and science. 

Registration opens Oct. 19, 2017.

During his lifetime, Martin Luther would spend time with students conversing about God’s living presence in the midst of the struggles of daily life. The theology that emerged changed the political and religious landscape across all of Europe. Today, people are also faced with political and religious uncertainty; does our Lutheran heritage have something to offer?

We paired Luther faculty with parish pastors to engage some of the issues our congregations are struggling with today – identity, divisiveness, technology, and community. Listen in on these fresh and honest conversations among scholars and practitioners on how our distinctive Lutheran voice is uniquely gifted to speak into our world today.
