Bishop’s Convocation 2019
Remembering the Past to Find Our Way into Future
(With Help from the Acts of the Apostles)
Camp Lutherhaven, Coeur d’Alene, ID
October 28 - 30
History has a way devolving into nostalgia, but that shouldn't happen when we look to Christian history to remind us about who we are and who God is. Acts won't provide us with a perfect, pristine model for ministry that we can copy, but it can re-invigorate our confidence in God's reliability and give us courage to risk and dream. We will explore what Acts says but also questions of why Acts was written and what kind of impact it seeks to have. By putting the lessons of Acts into conversation with our current frustrations and hopes, we'll see how the book sparks creativity and renews faith.
Our Guest is Professor Matthew L. Skinner, Luther Seminary.
