Celebrating Reformation Insights Today
November 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Marit Trelstad, Professor of Constructive and Lutheran Theologies at Pacific Lutheran, will be at IPC to lead a conversation about Luther’s theology. She will focus on main theological ideas of Luther and the gifts and challenges they bring to our communities and issues of concern today. She will engage six main concepts within Luther’s theology and then discuss Lutheran scholars and current applications of these ideas. For example, Luther’s understanding of the cross finds God in the challenges and places of suffering today. How may this help us understand our calling to each other and the earth today? Luther’s theology has also been used to support religious and racial oppression within the last century. How might we hold to the distinctive and marvelous insights of our tradition and yet also challenge these abuses?
