Speakers include Former Presiding Bishop of the ELCA Mark Hanson, Ginger Anderson-Larson, Dr. Diane Jacobson, Dr. Winston Persaud, and the ELCA Revival Team’s Rev. CeCee Mills.
The themes of this event—worship, Bible study, catechism instruction, and spiritual practices—support the efforts of the emerging Life of Faith Initiative and furthers the commitments of the ELCA’s Book of Faith Initiative.
The Life of Faith Initiative is an emerging grassroots effort within the ELCA whose purpose is to stir up a culture change that frees us to make service by the baptized in the arenas of daily life the central focus of the church’s mission.
The Life of Faith initiative builds on the premise and success of the ELCA’s Book of Faith initiative, which pioneered a grass-roots movement embracing a common vision in which all are invited to open scripture and join the conversation.
When faith is connected to life, congregations will experience renewal in purpose and vitality.
