In a changing church and world, perhaps a question we don’t ask often enough is: What’s your story?
Where have you encountered God? Why are you a Christian? What is it about the story of Jesus—as opposed to the millions of stories available to us in our globally connected world—that makes your life meaningful?
These are questions the Luther Seminary community is exploring right now. We know that in order to communicate the gospel in an increasingly secular age, we have to use less “churchspeak” and more sharing from the heart about the difference Jesus makes in our everyday lives. We’re experimenting with how to share our own stories of faith and transformation.
Perhaps you’d like to join us?
During this season of Lent, there’s no better time to think about how your story interacts with God’s story. May your contemplation and reflection over these next 40 days bring you closer to the cross of Christ, and to the hope and meaning found there.
Grace and peace,
Robin J. Steinke, President
