Konferences norise ANGĻU VALODĀ (bez tulkojuma).
Many churches are working with their identity. The conference starts with an analysis of the book Church of Christ written by bishop Bo Giertz in 1939.
It has meant a lot for the self-understanding of many people in Sweden as well as outside the borders of Sweden.
This led our thoughts into the well-known concept of the seven marks of the Church that Martin Luther promotes. Mission Diocese in Finland consciously uses it in their work with identity and pastoral questions and it will be presented. During the conference the fifth mark, “the Office”, together with pastoral education will be the most focused one.
Since the conference will be held in the Baltic region that lives with the heritage from both war and (a church hostile) occupation, it is natural to have a lecture on the subject, focusing on the seventh mark - the cross.
Considering the mission of the Church for the world - what is the world like the public proclamation is supposed to address? This will also include an analysis of our present time.
Since we live in a new situation where churches are changed and new church structures are formed, the conference will end with a general consideration about the relation between the Church and the different individual church structures.
