During the week of August 5th to 9th, the Institute of Lutheran Theology (ILT) attended Lutheran Week, the Annual Convocation of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). Both Dr. Benne and Dr. Hinlicky, ILT faculty from our earliest days, presented at the beginning of the week for the Braaten-Benne Lectures. This year the lectures focused on discipleship. Throughout the week, Dr. Jonathan Sorum and Mr. Leon Miles were able to meet with the faculty and students who attended the event. It was wonderful to connect with all those who visited the table and to get to know those in the NALC.
We would also like to congratulate The Rev. Dr. Dan Selbo for his election as Presiding Bishop.
We pray that God would continue to bless him in his new calling.
