February 23: Hildegard of Bingen: A Mystic in Action
These two Sunday Forums introduce Hildegard of Bingen to us in preparation for the Lenten Vespers series, Living Light in Lent. February 16 will introduce Hildegard, covering the first half of her life and introducing her mysticism. February 23 will cover the second half of her life with emphasis on community as a growth and healing force.
Musicologist and composer Dr. Ann Gebuhr has devoted years of research to Hildegard of Bingen published in her 2012 book Hildegard! We thank Ann for helping us to get to know this medieval theologian and mystic whose spirituality will accompany us throughout Lent. Ann taught music and composition at Houston Baptist University and is a member of Christ the King Church.

Have you ever wondered what is distinctively (or peculiarly) Lutheran about Christ the King Church? Do you want a refresher and/or an “update”? Are you from a different tradition and are mostly new to how and why we Lutherans worship and think the way we do? And why we here at CTK are “sorta different” from even other Lutheran congregations? For that matter, how are we like the rest of Christianity? Why keep any distinctive behaviors and doctrines? Continue reading

The CTK Creation Care Team invites you to a monthly environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2019 is environmental issues, and what you can do. In November, Lisa Brenskelle, head of the team, will discuss the U.N.’s Global Environmental Outlook, a report issued earlier this year, and how faith enables our response to the ecological crisis described in the report. Lisa will examine the science that explains the present state of our world and the major environmental issues we face. She will then consider how our faith both informs and enables our response to this crisis. The first half of this talk reviews the Global Environmental Outlook. The second half of the talk discusses how faith enables a response. Lisa holds a PhD in engineering, and has worked on a volunteer basis in earthkeeping ministry for decades. Join her for this thought-provoking talk! Register for this talk on eventbrite.com. Contact Lisa Brenskelle with any questions about this talk.
