Summer Lay Bible Institute set for Aug. 5

One-day class to examine theological topics in a scientific age

We are living in a scientific age and our theology should be adequate to deal with the assumptions, methods and findings of modern science.

Pastors, church leaders and lay people alike are invited to attend the Summer Lay Bible Institute “What Christians in a Scientific Age Should Know About Theology” from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, on the campus of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

The workshop will led by Dr. Joel Okamoto, the Waldemar and Mary Griesbach Professor of Systematic Theology, chairman of the Department of Systematic Theology and associate professor of Systematic Theology.

“We could be better informed about science, but our theology should be adequate to deal with the assumptions, methods and findings of modern science,” Okamoto said. “For example, before we worry whether science has disproved the existence of God, we should be clear about what we mean when we confess our faith in God and what we are doing when we confess that He created all things ‘out of nothing.’”

Topics examined during this one-day event will include God, creation, humans and the Scriptures.

Registration is $20. The registration deadline is July 24, 2017. Participants can register online by clicking here. For more information, contact Continuing Education at 314-505-7286 or ce@csl.edu.
