12-08 Spring Convocation April 17-18
Gettysburg Seminary will look at stewardship of the environment, green movements in theology and explore the state of eco-theology in its annual Spring Convocation held on campus April 17-18, 2012.
In this two day event in which lectures and workshops are free and open to the public, Gettysburg Seminary partners with GreenFaith, Interfaith Partners for the Environment, to present lectures by renowned scholar/practitioners in the field of eco-theology. Nationally known presenters include GreenFaith’s Fletcher Harper, New Testament scholar David Rhoads of Lutheransrestoringcreation.org, theologian Cynthia Moe-Lobeda and Gettysburg Seminary’s Gilson Waldkoenig. An array of workshops offered on Wednesday April 18th will supply practical applications for ministries that serve the care of creation.
The two day event is geared toward church leaders, both ordained and lay, interested in examining faithful stewardship of the environment through the lenses of scripture, theology, ethics, justice, worship and congregational practice. The seminary will also feature its most recent greening projects.
The setting for Wednesday Eucharist will be the “Of Land and Seasons Liturgy” in a newly updated
version by Stephen and Beth Folkemer. For details about all presenters, visit the Seminary website:
