A People for God’s Name: The John Tietjen Speaker Series
Saturday, Feb. 22
Reception at 4:00 p.m.
Conversation at 5:00 p.m.
How do our varying cultures separate and bind us as Christians?
Is this a new question for the church?
Come hear the Rev. Dr. Eric Baretto discuss how race and ethnicity affects our lives as Christians and how God interacts with and through us in these differences.
Trinity Lutheran Church, as part of The John Tietjen Speaker Series, presents the Rev. Dr. Eric Baretto.
He is Assistant Professor of New Testament at Luther Seminary in St. Paul. He was ordained by Peachtree Baptist Church in 2006 after completing a bachelor of arts degree in religion at Oklahoma Baptist University and a master of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary. He earned a doctoral degree in New Testament from Emory University.
A more intimate time of conversation with Metroplex Area clergy will be offered on Sunday, Feb. 23rd at 3:00 p.m.
Also, Trinity is offering this in conjunction with Brite Divinity School, and on Feb. 24th Advanced Program students at Brite will have an opportunity to meet with Dr. Baretto.
The Rev. John Tietjen Speaker Series was established upon the retirement of Pastor Tietjen from Trinity Lutheran Church. It is intended to carry on the legacy of John Tietjen and his interest in scholarship, ecumenism and Lutheran confessional teaching and preaching. Prior Tietjen Series speakers include the Rev. Nadia Bolz-Weber (2012) and the Rev. Clint Schnekloth (2013).
