PLU Lutheran Studies Conference

The ninth annual Lutheran Studies Conference will be Thursday, Oct 3, 2019, 1-8:30 PM.
Keynote Speaker: Nadia Bolz-Weber.

This conference focuses on faith, sexuality, gender, justice and shame in politics and faith traditions. Keynote lecturer Rev. Nadia Bolz-Weber will be speaker on her 2019 book Shameless: A Sexual Reformation. The conference itself provides tools and national experts on religion, churches and current political landscapes that influence our discussios of sexuality and identity. A session will review one church tradition, the ELCA, for its recent social statements on abortion, sexuality and gender justice. We will also explore ways spirituality and religion may heal or hinder a healthy sense of sexuality.
