Faith Dialogues will be presenting Dr. Samuel Torvend on September 29th, 30th, & October 1st, 2017 for three days of discussion and teaching about Martin Luther and the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
Friday night lecture:
ALL THINGS ARE BEING MADE NEW: THE CONTEMPORARY RELEVANCE OF THE REFORMATION
In this presentation, participants will consider the different reforming streams of the sixteenth century that emerged from a fresh encounter with the Bible and the distinctive gifts each reform offers the Christian community today. Not only will the Lutheran Reformation be explored—the Reformed and Wesleyan movements will be considered as well.
EUCHARISTIC PRACTICE IN THE MIDST OF ECONOMIC INJUSTICE
This interactive presentation and conversation will invite participants to consider the revolutionary reform of sacrament and social assistance promoted by early Lutheran congregations. At the same time, we will consider the “economy” of the Eucharist and the questions this sacramental practice raises in a land marked by poverty and continued food insecurity.
