A Devotional for your Lenten reflection by Dr. Eric Springsted

"So we are faced with two contrary dangers, hope and despair..."

My text is Matthew 22:1-14, the parable of the wedding banquet. Here folks who were first invited refused to come, but then, when those in the highways and byways are brought in, some of those who fail to dress appropriately are bounced from the hall.  The way I would like to think about this text is by using the very recent Irish film “Calvary.”

12th Annual Reformed Institute Convocation
Presbyterians and American Culture: The case of the twentieth century

LongfieldPresented by: Dr. Bradley J. Longfield, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary, Dean of the Seminary and Vice President of the University, Professor of Church History

Many observers of the Presbyterian Church have argued that the church, in recent decades, has significantly accommodated itself to the broader culture and has thereby had increasing difficulty articulating a clear identity. In this talk, Dr. Longfield will consider the relationship of church and culture in the twentieth century to explore this claim and suggest ways the church might embrace a clearer identity in the years ahead.
