Learning from the Global South

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks with Dr. Leopoldo A. Sánchez M., who is the Werner R.H. Krause and Elizabeth Ringger Krause Professor of Hispanic Ministries, director of the Center for Hispanic Studies and interim chairman of the Multiethnic Symposium at Concordia Seminary. Sanchez highlights the field of systematic theology, his study and work on the Holy Spirit, and the May 4-5, 2021, Multiethnic Symposium, which is being held online with the theme “The Rest and the West: What the West Can Learn from Global South Christianity.” “We really focus on engaging the world with the Gospel,” Sánchez  says. “This year’s symposium is about learning from Christians in the Global South.” The largest Lutheran churches are in now in Africa, Madagascar and Ethiopia, and the largest Lutheran university is in Brazil, he notes. There are 1,000 Lutheran Baptisms a day in Ethiopia. “There must be something we can learn,” he says.
