Conversations on Faith and Life: Spring 2018 Hoffmann Lecture
February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
James Wetzstein, LCMS campus pastor at Valparaiso University, will deliver this year’s Hoffmann Lecture, “The Provisional Nature of Truth,” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20 at the Buetow Auditorium. The event is free and open to all students, faculty, staff, and members of the community.
The annual Hoffmann Lecture seeks to foster CSP’s ongoing Lutheran commitment to Christian mission and outreach. The Hoffmann Lecture Series celebrates the life and ministry of Rev. Dr. Oswald Hoffmann. Ordained a Lutheran minister in 1939, Dr. Hoffmann served The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod as a religious leader and ambassador in a career that included varied roles as an author, pastor, broadcaster, classical and linguistics scholar, and teacher. The Hoffmann Lecture continues the legacy of Hoffmann by equipping students to show Christ’s love in their vocation, service, and care for others. Founded in 1984, the Hoffmann Mentoring Initiative is to prepare students for an active outreach consciousness within the campus community and raise outreach vision, commitment, involvement, and leadership throughout the church.
