Summit: 'Margins' to focus on Jesus, LukePosted September 11, 2013
Speakers from across the country are headed to Abilene for next week's Summit event on the ACU campus. The theme of this year's gathering, "Margins," centers around how Jesus reaches out to us and to all those who live on the margins of life.
Nationally recognized ministers, authors and special guests, including many ACU faculty members and alumni, will discuss how people follow Jesus in Luke’s gospel and today.
Luke Timothy Johnson, Peter Williams and Scot McKnight are this year's featured speakers, with discussions about the Gospel, justice, art, history, spiritual formation, and ministry, as these topics relate to life on the margins with Jesus.
Johnson was awarded first place in the Scripture category of the Catholic Press Association's 2012 book awards. McKnight has published more than 30 books and teaches the New Testament at Northern Seminary in Lombard, Ill.
Sessions begin Sunday night at 7 p.m. in Moody Coliseum with Jonathan Storment speaking on Luke 1:26-38 (“Let it Be to Me”). Concerts, meals, receptions, late night meetings, coffee house conversations, and class sessions will be offered all week.
