Welcome to our first issue of 2018!
We would like to extend a special welcome to some of our new readers who attended the Mid-Winter Convocation at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota this past month. The Faith and Science theme of this year’s Convocation highlighted many topics for the 200 pastors and church leaders in attendance to take back home.
I was honored to represent the Lutheran Alliance for Faith, Science and Technology (LAFST) along with fellow steering committee members John Albright and Dana Hendershot at the event, which held sessions ranging from youth curriculum, urban nature, the scale of the universe and neurology. Another fellow steering committee member and director of the Zygon Center Lea Schweitz gave a plenary lecture on “Creation Catechesis and Reading the Book of Nature.”
At the conference a good number of people were asking about the availability of resources and this month we are including a recent essay published on WorkingPreacher.org from Pastor Hendershot. She along with the rest of the LAFST steering committee have compiled a number of free curricula and other congregational resources that can be found here.
If you are interested in learning about the Alliance or in getting involved in future work of the group let us know via email email@example.com.Read the issue
