LTJ Learning Opportunity

The Lutheran Theological Journal (LTJ) serves the church by providing a place where its workers can present a range of theological views that generate fruitful and respectful discussion. On the basis of that role, a supplementary issue of LTJ was produced in May in conjunction with Lutheran Education Australia (LEA), its articles focusing on the intersection of Lutheran theology with contemporary educational theories and practices. (An electronic version of the papers has been made available.)

If you would like to engage in discussion about these papers in an online forum with the national Lutheran education community, a series of one-hour Learning circles have been scheduled. Learning circles are a joint initiative of LEA and ALC, providing leadership development opportunities. You will have an opportunity to experience the same resource and then share reflections with the authors.

To book any of the following sessions, please email with the sessions you would like to attend and a Zoom link will be sent to you.
