OUR GUEST THEOLOGIAN ON BIBLICAL IMAGINATION AND CROSS+GEN WORSHIP IN THE POSTMODERN WORLD

The Rev. Dr. David J. Lose, President of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, will lead us to and through our theological reflections on the Cross+Gen faith formation movement, worship and biblical imagination.

The founding director of the Center for Biblical Preaching, Dr. Lose led the creative team that developed WorkingPreacher.org, and directed two Lilly Endowment-funded grants on fostering congregational vibrancy. Author of Preaching at the Crossroads (2013) and the popular Making Sense series of books and resources from Augsburg Fortress, Lose has also written for the Huffington Post, Patheos, and The Christian Century. 

Before returning to his alma mater, LTSP, Lose taught on the faculty of Luther Seminary (St. Paul, MN) for fourteen years. While there, he also served a term as Academic Dean. 

His daily Bible devotions and other writings and reflections on connecting faith to daily life can be found at “…In the Meantime” (www.davidlose.net).

A graduate of Franklin and Marshall College (B.A.), LTSP (M.Div., S.T.M.), and Princeton Theological Seminary (Ph.D.), Lose speaks throughout the US and abroad on preaching, leadership, Christian faith in a postmodern world, and biblical imagination. His favorite thing to do is hanging out with his family in Kennett Square, PA, where he can play tennis, root for the Eagles, and regularly get wrapped up in a game of Settlers of Catan with his kids.
