Educational sessions include:
"Connections: Faith and Life"
Dr. Norma Cook Everist, Professor of Church Administration and Educational Ministry at Wartburg Seminary, will discuss how the creating, redeeming, and life-giving God continues graciously to call us to vocation in daily life. We will be learning together by making a connection between Martin Luther’s catechetical "What does this mean?" and the "What in the world does this mean?" of our own lives. That intersection will be the place for dynamic learning. The presentation will involve discussion and resources that participants can take back to their own congregations.
"Listening 'With Ears to Hear'"
Dr. Samuel Giere, Associate Professor of Homiletics and Biblical Interpretation at Wartburg Seminary, will discuss an online resource he has created for those who listen to Christian preaching: WithEarsToHear.org. For his teaching, Dr. Giere has become familiar with countless websites dedicated to those who preach. When looking for websites for those who listen to sermons week after week, he found none. WithEarsToHear.org is a response to this void. It provides accessible, biblically grounded information about preaching and tools to help orient the ear toward the gospel.
PLUS additional student led mini-sessions and optional campus tours.
