Kairos is a time each Sunday of enrichment for mind and spirit. A mix of timely topics, Bible Study, and theological exploration are presented by scholars, theologians and other professionals. Kairos meets at 8:45 a.m. and 10:05 a.m. in the Fireside Room. The same topic is presented at both times. If you typically worship at 10:45 a.m., feel free to come to the 10:05 a.m. Kairos session and leave at 10:45 a.m. for the start of worship.

Fall/Winter 2017-2018 Themes & Speakers

Descriptions for Fall/Winter 2017-2018 presentations will be updated as we receive information from the speakers.

December 3: What Time is It? (Advent Bible Study)

Dr. James Boyce, Luther Seminary

The Gospel of Mark’s first call for an Advent People is to be on the alert. Living with an eye to the present and to the future is tricky business, especially when even the angels and the coming Son of Man don’t know about “that day or hour.” The best one can say is “keep awake!”

December 10: Time for Good News (Advent Bible Study)

Dr. James Boyce, Luther Seminary

The Gospel of Mark’s second call for an Advent People is to tune in to a time of promise. Are we ready to believe that now is the time for the beginning of some good news—that God is up to something that will surely change our lives?

Dr. James Boyce is an ordained pastor in the ELCA and a retired Professor of New Testament and Greek at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota, where he taught for more than 40 years. He continues to lead frequent Bible studies at his home church, Roseville Lutheran, and at area churches, to write periodically for Luther Seminary’s “Working Preacher” resource for pastors, and to edit the seminary’s daily online Bible study resource “God Pause.”
