Description

Pastor Carolyn Hetrick of Grace Lutheran Church, State College, PA is joined by Dr. Kirsi I. Stjerna, the First Lutheran, Los Angeles/Southwest California Synod Professor of Lutheran History and Theology at California Lutheran University, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary; Core Doctoral Faculty, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley; Docent, Helsinki University, Finland. Today we talk about Galatians 5:22-23, peace, compassion and freedom theology. 


Today's music is "Be Thou My Vision." This is a soulful arrangement of the beloved traditional hymn Be Thou My Vision, composed by Judy Nishimura, and recorded by Laurel Sanders, flutist, with permission of ALRY Publications. The score is available at www.alrypublications.com.

A native of Finland, Kirsi is a Lutheran theologian engaged in critical and compassionate examination of the relevance of Luther's freedom theology for the contemporary world. She has broad interests in the Reformation scholarship and with the sources in Christian theology. Her book Women and the Reformation (Wiley 2008) broke new ground by bringing women's theological voices to the conversation. In her Luther scholarship, she has focused on theology of faith and sacraments, and critical uprooting of antisemitism in Christian argumentation. The Annotated Luther, Vol. I-VI (Fortress, 2015-2017) was a major undertaking that saw its completion in the Reformation anniversary year. In 2021 she published Lutheran Theology: A Grammar of Faith (Bloomsbury/T&T Clark) for classroom use.
