In partnership with McCormick Theological Seminary and Catholic Theological Union, LSTC will offer the 2022 Scherer Lecture in person at LSTC's chapel and virtually on October 4 at 4 p.m. The lecture will be presented by Michael J. Gorman.
The lecture will explore the concept of “resurrectional cruciformity” — cross-shaped ministry infused with the power and presence of the risen Lord — as the shape of Paul’s own sense of mission. We will explore certain Pauline texts in which Paul narrates how he seeks both to embody this spirituality and to see it embodied in the communities to which he writes. We will then consider how this same spirituality is relevant for the contemporary mission of the church locally and globally.
Michael J. Gorman holds the Raymond E. Brown Chair in Biblical Studies and Theology at St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore, Maryland, where he has taught since 1991. He has also taught or lectured throughout the U.S. and in Canada, New Zealand, and Africa. The author or editor of nearly twenty books and scores of articles, Dr. Gorman has devoted special attention to theological and missional readings of the New Testament, especially the letters of Paul.
Register to participate either in-person or virtually below. Zoom details for remote participants will be provided via e-mail after registration. The event will be held in LSTC’s Augustana Chapel.
