The 6th Annual Gustavus Adolphus College Association of Congregations Faith Conference will take on two key issues: doubt in matters of faith, and confronting differences as a living expression of faith. This year, Dr. Jacqueline Bussie and Bishop Munib Younan will highlight the half-day conference hosted by the Association of Congregations and the Gustavus Office of Church Relations.

Taking the stage at 10:15 a.m., Dr. Bussie is the director of the Forum on Faith and serves as a professor of religion at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. She is the author of Outlaw Christian: Finding Authentic Faith by Breaking Faith’s ‘Rules’ and the forthcoming Love Without Limits: Jesus’ Radical Vision for Love with No Exceptions.

Bishop Munib Younan is the former bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Jordan and the Holy Land and has deep experience working across religious, cultural, and racial divisions to seek peace. The former head of the Lutheran World Federation, Younan will speak at 11:15 a.m.

Tickets are available for $10 each.
