NALC Lutheran Week

NALC Lutheran Week

Since 2012, the North American Lutheran Church (NALC) has each year convened a group of younger theological, historical, and biblical scholars prior to “Lutheran Week,” which includes the NALC convocation. Formerly known as the “Younger Theologians,” the group is now known as “Theologians for the Church.” Participants gather to reflect on topics in theology, support each other, and discuss the relevance of theology for the current Lutheran situation in North America and the world.

ILT has been represented at this gathering over the years. This year at the NALC Lutheran Week in Oklahoma City, Dr. Thomas Jacobson, Assistant Professor of History, was in attendance and has been a participant from the beginning. Thomas Thorstad, current Ph.D. student at ILT, also participated.

This year, participants discussed the theme “God the Father Creates…In His Image.” Each member reflected on a particular biblical passage in light of their area of specialty. We are grateful for ILT’s continuing contribution to the field of Lutheran theology through this organization.
