Our pilgrimage will draw to a close at the end of October after a few days in Rome, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Afterwards we’ll head for a week in Wittenberg, Germany, where the Institute for Ecumenical Research is hosting its annual two-week Studying Luther in Wittenberg program. We’ll be talking about our trip there, so if you’re in the neighborhood, drop us a line and we’ll let you know how to sit in on our presentation.
But for the great number of you who are not conveniently on the right continent to take a side trip to Wittenberg, you have three chances to see us in the U.S.!
The first is at Augsburg College in St. Paul, Minnesota, where we’ll be speaking at the Founders’ Day events on November 10 and 11. Andrew will give an address complete with photos on the evening of the 10th entitled, “Pomegranates, Pilgrims, and Pontiffs: A Kinetic View of Luther’s Walk to Rome,” and on the morning of the 11th I’ll be speaking on “What Has Erfurt to Do with Rome? Ecumenism as a Pilgrimage,” with some but probably not as many photos as Andrew’s presentation!
Our second appearance is quite a bit to the south at Lenoir-Rhyne University, where we’ll be the Theologians-in-Residence from November 14 to 17, which includes the same lectures on the evenings of the 14th and 15th and chapel preaching on the 17th.
We’d love to see you, so please come if you can!
