Forum on Virtue and Integrity in Families of Faith, St. Paul, Chatfield

Forum on Virtue and Integrity in Families of Faith at St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Chatfield, MN, from 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 10, 2018 


Having a family is hard work. Let’s be honest. Being a parent is hard work, especially in an age of moral revolution that calls evil good and good evil. Now more than ever, Christians stand in a profound position to reclaim family virtue--most especially to celebrate the roles of Christian mothers and fathers, the importance of our children, and the joy of teaching biblical virtues and Christian integrity in our daily living. This forum will explore the role of the classic virtues (i.e. wisdom, justice, courage, temperance, along with faith, hope, and love) in sustaining families of faith and integrity in a virtue-less age. We will explore such questions as “What does it mean to be a godly woman and a godly man? What does it mean to be a Christian parent or grandparent? How do I teach this to my children and grandchildren? How do I not only inform them, but form them to be a man and a woman of God?” Come join us as we discuss how passing on these virtues to our children is not only helpful for Christian formation, but for the good of our society. A complimentary lunch will be provided.

Rev. Dr. Lucas V. Woodford will serve as presenter and is the Sr. Pastor of Zion Lutheran Church and School in Mayer, MN (since 2005). He is the author of the book Great Commission, Great Confusion, or Great Confession? The Mission of the Holy Christian Church, along with other professional journal articles, and is a regular contributor to The Lutheran Witness
