Link to Register:




Although it is very early, I want to give you a good heads up about a program I am very excited to be a part of: a three-part series calledTheology Uncapped.  The first event was held in September and was very well received with large crowds who registered early to ensure they would be a part of the discussion.

The three parts are a discussion between  Pastor Peter Kowitz from United Lutheran Church in Proctor, and me.

I  met with Pastor Kowitz several times this passed spring and summer, and he is a very impressive individual. I look forward to the January discussion since the September gathering was such a success.

These events are not debates, but hopefully constructive conversations, which will include questions from the crowd.

Our first “Theology Uncapped” was held on  Thursday, Sept. 28, 6:30 pm, at St. Benedict’s, and the topic was “The Papacy, Necessary or Unnecessary.”

The second session is scheduled for Thursday, January 25th at 6:30 pm, and here are the specifics:

(Note the change of venue from Saint Benedict’s to Grace Lutheran Church. )


Celibacy in Ministry


Here is the link to register:



You must  RSVP,  because space is limited, and there is a cost, which includes a catered meal and beverage of wine, beer, or pop.

The cost is $20 per person, and it will fill up.

My hope is that it will fill up with parishioners from our parishes. These are rare opportunities to hear  conversations between a Catholic priest and a Lutheran minister about our different faith traditions.

A future topic, to be held in Spring  will be the “Virgin Mary.”

Please note the December 1 registration date, and assure yourself a place at this event. 

We look forward to you joining us on January 25th.
