Rev. John Van Sloten

EDMONTON – The Canadian Centre for Scholarship and the Christian Faith (CCSCF), with the sponsorship of FaithLife Financial, has announced the revival of the FaithLife Lecture series at Concordia University College of Alberta (CUCA).

January 30, 2013 will mark the first lecture in the series since 2007, and will feature Rev. John Van Sloten who will be speaking on “The Significance of Religion and Pop Culture for the Christian Faith.” Rev. Van Sloten is the senior pastor of New Hope Church in Calgary, Alberta, and is the author of The Day Metallica Came to Church: Searching for the Everywhere God in Everything. The lecture will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the CUCA Auditorium with a reception to follow.

The CCSCF encourages Lutheran Church–Canada members to invite their family, friends, and congregations to this thought-provoking event.

The CCSCF was developed as a place for scholars to conduct research on the relationship between Christian faith, academic learning, and the contemporary world. It’s second annual conference—focusing this year on the Social Sciences and the Christian Faith—will take place May 2-3, 2013.

The FaithLife Lecture series is intended to provide the general public with academically interesting ideas and their relation to Christian faith. The last lecture, held in 2007, featured Dr. Carl Shalk speaking on “Luther and Music in the Church.”
