"Faithful Christian Witness in a Multi-faith Land" Theme of LSTC's April Conference

Posted Mar 16, 2005

Like the first followers of Jesus, Christians today profess their faith in a landscape of striking religious diversity. Even rural areas are increasingly affected by global communications, trade, travel and war. "Treasure in a Garden: Christian Witness in a Multi-faith Land," April 13 - 15 at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, is designed as a continuing education event for professional religious leaders, interested lay people, and students.

Those who attend will honor the good news of the Christian tradition while learning more about neighbors whose religious practices may be less familiar. During the 2 ½ day conference, participants will hear testimony from people actively engaged in interfaith dialogue; develop skills for effective, mutually-respectful conversation; and visit other communities of worship.

Speakers and leaders for the conference represent several faith traditions. They include Charles Kimball, Lucinda Mosher, Lucky Altman, Harold Vogelaar, Nelly Van Doorn-Harder, Donald Heinz, Michael Shelley, Ayesha Mustafaa, and Sevan Ross. Cost of the conference is $150 plus housing and meals. For more information about the conference, including registration, visit or call Julie Ryan at 773-256-0708.
