Bishop Matthew Gunter of Fond du Lac

This retreat will seek wisdom from the great English mystic and theologian Julian of Norwich (1342-1416) and, praying with her, learn to see the world in the light of Jesus. The Lent silent retreat will be conducted by Bishop Matthew Gunter, who graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary in 1996. It was there that he was introduced to Julian of Norwich, whom he has re-read and studied since. Gunter was ordained Bishop of Fond du Lac (Wisconsin) on April 26, 2014. He is serving as bishop visitor for the Community of St. Anselm at Lambeth Palace in London.

The retreat begins with a reception Friday followed by dinner, and goes through brunch on Sunday. The cost is $200, including meals and lodging. Many special diets may be accommodated with advance notice. Racine is accessible via Metra, Amtrak, Greyhound, Coach USA, and nearby Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee.

On the 500th year anniversary of Martin Luther’s historic reform work, the Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is inviting the world to commemorate the life, legacy, and relevant teachings of reformer Martin Luther by taking a free, 45-minute, pre-recorded online class.

Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton is a speaker, teacher, and spiritual head of 3.5 million Evangelical Lutherans worldwide. Her class, “What Would Luther Do Today? with Elizabeth Eaton” is rich in resources and inspiration and will be offered for free to all January 16-30.

“Jesus is asking the Church to pay more attention to the issues of poverty, climate change, human rights, and ecumenism – and Martin Luther offers a profound message to us in this regard,” says Eaton. “My hope is that Our Lord will use this class to draw people closer to Jesus, inspire and invigorate Christians to engage in positive social change, and enter the next 500 years with a renewed faith in God’s grace and providence.”

In this course, students will learn more about Luther and make relevant connections that can lead to transformation. The class is a series of video lectures, quizzes, and discussions. No special software is required. It will take an average learner about 45 minutes to complete. Registration is free and open to all here.
