We will explore what it means to SHARE OUR GOSPEL STORY together by gathering online and learning how God is active in our lives, even when we don't realize it!   

And this is what sets our SOUL ON FIRE!

The Rev. Dr. Ruth E. Hamilton, pastor of St. Luke Lutheran Church, Atlanta, and synod secretary, has been invited to serve as recording secretary for Round XII of the U.S. Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue.  The invitation was extended by the co-chairs of the dialogue, the Most Reverend Lee A. Piché, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, and the Rev. Lowell G. Almen, former secretary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Round XII of the dialogue, “Faithful Teaching,” examines the ministries of teaching within the Catholic and Lutheran churches through (1) study of official statements and documents as well as the findings of previous dialogues regarding the respective practices of the churches for such ministries; (2) exploration of the sources, structures, and patterns for discerning the truth coming to us in God’s Word and communicating this truth in normative teaching for today; and (3) assessment of the dialogue’s conclusions regarding the ministries of teaching for long-term ecumenical relationships.The dialogue meets twice a year to worship together, listen to and discuss papers and case studies on particular issues within the topic, determine further issues for study, and ultimately prepare a report.  The dialogue next meets October 9-12 in Chicago.
