Thinking Deeply about Relationship

Watch Video

Dr. Terence Fretheim

The word "relationship" pervades current reflections about God in the life of the church. What do we mean when we speak of "relationship?" How adequate is our understanding of the God-human relationship for our missional commitments and conversations? What will we teach our children about the relational God of the Bible, especially the God of the Old Testament?

Dr. Fretheim presented on this topic at the 2011 Missional Church Consultation Nov. 5, 2011, at Luther Seminary.

A Faithful Future: Event Preview

Seventh Annual Consultation on the Missional Church

November 4-5, 2011

A Faithful Future

How does the church remain faithful, while also being open and imaginative?

The church finds itself at an important crossroads. Aspects of church are being questioned, new challenges are stressing current practices and old answers are not sufficient for current circumstances. In the midst of this reality, however, some believe that the future of the church has great promise.

Lutheran Songs Today

Last month the Center for Missional Leadership held an event on Luther's campus entitled Lutheran Songs Today, that brought together a diverse group of wildly creative songwriters. Eventually we hope to edit this video down into smaller, more easily accessed segments, but for now you can get at least a taste of the event here.
