Who Is Christ For Us? Lutherans and Roman Catholics in Dialogue – February 19

The Rev. Winston D. Persaud, PhD
Wartburg Theological Seminary
Member of the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Dialogue, USA from 1990-2010 (rounds IX-XI)

Sunday, February 19, 2017 2:00pm

St. John’s Lutheran Church, Mendota, IL

The public is welcome.

As part of the observance of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Prof. Persaud will give a presentation on the historic Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification (JDDJ), signed by Lutheran World Federation and The Roman Catholic Church, 31 October 1999. We will look at how the JDDJ points us forward in living in the truth of Jesus’ prayer, “Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one” (John 17:11b).
