2016 National Conference

Twenty-sixth Annual National Conference

Reformed and Always Reforming: Faith, Science, Art and Culture

Augsburg College, Minneapolis, MN

October 14-16, 2016


The 26th Annual LFP National Conference, Reformed and Always Reforming: Faith, Science, Art and Culture, met on October 14 through 16 at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. Occurring in the Fall preceding the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, this conference offered a wonderful occasion to ‘kick-off’ the many and varied events and activities that are occurring around the world in 2017. While the religious transformation that came about is probably the most notable of the outcomes from the Reformation, there are numerous other effects that resulted from this call for reform.

Through a blend of plenary presentations, breakout sessions, experiences in the surrounding community, and dialogue with peers, conference participants experienced a rich opportunity to investigate the Reformation’s varied and lasting impact upon science, art, culture and higher education.
