Presented by The Rev. Dr. Cheryl Peterson on Tuesday, February 11 at 10 am at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 3500 Main Street, Hilliard, Ohio 

All rostered leaders in our synod are invited to attend a Rostered Leader Theological Education Event on February 11, 2014 (10 am) to hear what The Rev. Dr. Peterson has to say about our Lutheran heritage and it's impact on us today, if any.

The Rev. Dr. Cheryl Peterson is associate professor of systematic theology at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio. She received her Ph.D. in theology from Marquette University, Milwaukee in 2004 and an M.Div. from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago in 1991. A native Ohioan, she grew up in Worthington and attended Wittenberg University, Springfield, Ohio, receiving her B.A. in 1986. Before joining Trinity's faculty in 2005, she served as co-pastor with her husband, the Rev. Dr. Charles Peterson, of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (2000-2005) and as pastor of First English Lutheran Church in Tyrone, Pennsylvania (1991-1997). She is the author of Who is the Church? An Ecclesiology for the Twenty-First Century (Fortress Press, 2013) and numerous articles and book chapters. Her current research focuses on the work and role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Christian and the world, in dialogue with Pentecostalism and those who claim to be “spiritual but not religious.”

The Rev. Dr. Cheryl Peterson is a dynamic speaker and thoughtful theologian. Attendees of the 
February 11 Rostered Leader Theological Education Event will have ample material for dialogue and reflection.
