Register now for the second workshop of Living Well, Leading Well, a three-part monthly series of virtual workshops promoting wholeness, wellbeing, and renewal in our personal and professional lives.
What do humor and comedy have to do with faith, theology, and wellbeing? Everything! In the Bible, God laughs at people, people laugh at God, and there are some really funny stories. Think, for example, about Sarah and Abraham both laughing God in the face when God promised Sarah would bear a son in her old age. Karl and Rolf Jacobson will present on what church members, theologians, and ministers can learn from the serious business of comedy.
Rolf and Karl Jacobson, brothers from the same mother, suffer from the genetically inherited traits of being fans of Minnesota sports teams and Lutheran pastors. Karl is the lead pastor of the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Minneapolis; Rolf is the Rogness Professor of Scripture, Theology, and Ministry at Luther Seminary in St. Paul. They’ve written a few funny books about theology together, including Crazy Talk: A Not-So-Stuffy Dictionary of Theological Terms and Crazy Book: A Not-So-Stuffy Dictionary of Biblical Terms.
The zoom meeting link will be sent in the confirmation email you receive after registering.
