'One Coin Found.' A 4-week study of Emmy Kegler’s book that examines Luke’s ‘lost’ parables in light of the author’s self-discovery and church experience as a gay woman.

Led by Pr. Peter and Intern Pr. Katie  
Via Zoom Tues. mornings starting Jan. 4 at 6:00a. 
Via Zoom Wed. mornings starting Jan. 5 at 10:00a. 

Pr. Peter and Intern Pr. Katie invite you to an auto-biographically based re-examination of Luke, chapter 15, by Emmy Kegler. Kegler is an ELCA pastor who serves Grace Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, MN.

JUST ADDED! BONUS SESSION 5 with the author
Tuesday, February 1, and Wednesday, February 2.

Through a beautifully written and stunningly vulnerable account of her self-discovery as a gay woman, Kegler helps readers see places of hurt and liberation in the church with new eyes. She convincingly shows how God meets people on the margins and in the stories of impossibility—much like the parables of Luke—to make them whole.

To pre-register for either the Tuesday or Wednesday group, please shoot Pr. Peter an email, and he'll put you on the list and send you the Zoom link. You may attend either session during any given week. Email Pr. Peter »

The prose is easy and fast to read, so this will be a 4-session experience to kick off the new year that we hope you'll try.

Pr. Peter and Intern Pr. Katie look forward to your participation.
