Living by Hope in a Secular Age – Theological Symposium
Living by Hope in a Secular Age is the theme of the 33rd Annual Theological Symposium at Concordia Seminary in Saint Louis on September 19-20, 2023.
Polarization, disorder, and conflict are increasingly the marks of civil politics and the cultural landscape in American society. For this reason, confusion, mistrust, and fear are increasingly the marks of life. These feelings are growing even among Christians. They can see that wider society often disregards the church’s voice, moral vision, and activity. But they also find polarization, disorder, and conflict in their own churches.
This situation challenges the church to speak and act. But how? In this symposium, plenaries and sectionals will explore how our hope — our Christian hope in a healed and new Creation — can better shape our life, witness, and engagement with each other in the church and with all our neighbors in the world.
Symposium Plenaries presented by:
Dr. Michael Zeigler, the Lutheran Hour Speaker, Lutheran Hour Ministries, St. Louis
Dr. Joel Okamoto, the Waldemar and Mary Griesbach Professor of Systematic Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
Dr. Joel Biermann, the Waldemar A. and June Schuette Professor of Systematic Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
