Lutheran Men in Mission- Bold Gathering
Six speakers live streamed
Registration is open
LMM was thrilled when Bishop Tim agreed to speak at Bold Gathering. He has been a strong advocate of men's ministry for years and has a lot of wisdom to share. The title of his presentation is Unity, Reconciliation, and Forgiveness: The Essence to Cultural and Church Vitality.
Jesus prays his last earthly prayer before his crucifixion in John's Gospel that all of his followers might be one. He prays for unity. Unity requires reconciliation in a world of sin that separates us from God and from one another. Reconciliation depends on forgiveness. We'll focus on how we might begin both as Church and Culture to move the needle away from the rugged and absolute individualism that stands in the way of the joy of abundant living through unity, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
Bishop Tim Smith of the North Carolina Synod, ELCA, was elected five years ago. Prior to that, he served congregations in Startown (Newton), NC, Boone, NC, and Atlanta, GA. He is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg and earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from Drew University. He is married to Wendy, a retired school teacher. They have three grown children and
four under-four grandchildren, three of whom were born the same week!
