Lord of the Mountains to Kick off the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation with Lecture Series
On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five Thesis in Wittenberg, Germany. The resulting debate has shaped the course of Western Christianity for almost 500 years.
Lord of the Mountains will kick off its yearlong celebration with Reverend Marianne Borg, wife of the late Marcus Borg, a Progressive Christianity pioneer, prolific author and retired Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University.
Reverend Marianne Borg is a retired priest from Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Portland OR where she was founding director of the Center for Spiritual Development which supported lectures from contemporary theologians and sponsored pilgrimages to Israel, Ireland and Turkey.
Reverend Borg will lecture on her husband’s last book, Days of Awe and Wonder, How to Be a Christian in the 21st Century on July 15th 2017 at 6:30 pm at LOTM. Anyone interested in a fresh approach to Christianity is encouraged to attend.
On July 16th, Reverend Borg will also give the sermon at the 9:00 am service and follow up with a “Theo-talk” starting at 10:45.
