2016 Theological Symposium Recap

About 400 people — a record — attended the 27th annual Theological Symposium, “From Font to Grave: Catechesis for the Lifelong Disciple,” Sept. 20-21, 2016. For two days, speakers and participants studied and discussed how to recover and renew the church’s catechetical tradition and how to foster lifelong discipleship. Plenary presentations discussed Martin Luther’s creation, interpretation and teaching of the catechism. “Being a Lutheran is more than knowing the right answer,” said Dr. Anthony Cook, director of U.S. ministries for Lutheran Hour Ministries, St. Louis, and one of the plenary speakers. “It’s a way of being that encompasses the totality of life.”
