Does Preaching Matter? More Than Ever!
Rev. Dr. David Lose, Senior Pastor, Mount Olivet Lutheran Church
Former President of Lutheran Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
Author of “Making Sense” series of books
Augsburg University Campus Ministry invites you to join us via Zoom on Tuesday, March 9, at 10:30 am as Augsburg University welcomes Pastor Lose for the fourth annual Fosdick Lecture on Preaching. Amid a pandemic, economic and ecological crisis, painful reminder of racial justice, and a period of drastic political polarization, one may wonder whether or not the preaching of the church matters. Fair question. Yet at the same time, preaching the love, justice, and mercy of God has never mattered more. Preaching matters because it reminds us that the challenges of the day, while urgent, are neither the only nor ultimate realities with which we live. It matters because in the proclamation of the Gospel we are reminded of our primary identity as God’s beloved children. And it matters because a central component of the Gospel is the promise that the future is in God’s hands. Come, join the conversation!
