The Fourth Annual St. John Chrysostom Lutheran Preacher's Retreat


The fourth annual St. John Chrysostom Lutheran Preacher’s Retreat will be held June 22-24, 2009 at St. Michael’s Retreat in Lumsden, SK. The theme for this year’s retreat is “The Living God and His Living Word.” This year’s speaker will be The Rev. David H. Petersen who is the pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne, IN. Pastor Petersen is an editorial Associate and columnist for Higher Things: Dare to be Lutheran, an editor for Gottesdienst: A Quarterly Journal of the Evangelical Lutheran Liturgy, is a regular guest on the Issues, etc radio program hosted by Rev. Todd Wilken, has served as a guest lecturer at Luther Seminary in South Korea teaching in the area of Liturgics, and writes a widely read blog at cyberstones.org.
The annual retreat is arranged to provide a time for brothers in the Ministry to gather and discuss the art of preaching. Previous speakers include The Rev. William Cwirla, The Rev. Dr. John Nunes, and the Rev. Wil Weedon. The retreat includes several opportunities for hearing preaching in the opening Service on the first evening and Matins, Vespers, and Compline are prayed throughout the retreat. There is also ample time for relaxation and casual conversation left in the schedule. LCC and LCMS pastors and seminarians are welcome to attend.
