About Faith & Life

The Lectures

The Faith & Life Lecture Series exists to create welcoming and accessible public forums for members of the Twin Cities community to hear nationally known speakers reflect on how Christian faith is related to different dimensions of everyday life. The talks are always free public events. The lectures typically last about 50 minutes, followed by a brief period for Q&A after the presentation by the speaker. After the Q&A, speakers are generally available for one-on-one discussion with members of the audience during an informal reception. At most lectures, material by the speaker or related to the lecture subject -- books, CDs, or artwork -- is available for sale.

Audio podcasts of selected lectures are available here.

The Series

The Faith & Life Lecture Series is a community service of both St. Philip the Deacon Lutheran Church and Mount Olivet Lutheran Church of Plymouth, both located in Plymouth, Minnesota. The series began in 2003 as a community service of Mount Olivet. In 2007, St. Philip the Deacon Lutheran Church joined Mount Olivet to co-present the Faith & Life events.
