Luther Seminary, ELCA, is holding a festival, a "Festival of Homiletics" (the way of writing sermons and preaching).
The festival's theme is "Preaching a New Earth: Climate and Creation."
We learn from their website that, "Our God needs our help to speak the truth about where and how God’s Earth groans for renewal, even resurrection, how our very climate changes are God’s cries for help." God is crying for help?
Their site continues "The 2020 Festival of Homiletics theme invites preachers to imagine their own role in God’s creative work, to be courageous in preaching about God’s creative activity, and to claim boldly our role in caring for God’s creation, when God’s very creation is at stake." (See here)
Also, notice the great effort to which the ELCA seminary goes to avoid using male pronouns for God in those sentences?
"The Festival’s ownership, leadership and planning efforts are with Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota." (See here)
One of the speakers is controversial ELCA pastor Lenny Duncan. (See here and learn more about Rev. Duncan here)

I attended Gettysburg Seminary very briefly several years ago. My home church pastor went there in the 1960’s when things were very different. So he didn’t brief me on the liberalism of ELCA seminaries because he was utterly unaware. But once I got there, I realized I had made a huge mistake. They taught Universalism at Gettysburg when I went, utter apostasy. But now they and the other seminaries are even further off the deep end with this Climate Change nonsense.
