What does it mean to be a Lutheran school?
What does having a Lutheran identity mean for the education that Lutheran schools provide?
What does it mean to be a Lutheran school when there are hardly any ‘Lutherans’ on staff or in the student population?
Lutheran education is not just education with a dose of Lutheran teaching as an added extra. Lutheran education provides a whole way of thinking about and making meaning of one’s identity, life, relationships and the world. It is transformational and about living abundantly, today and into the future.
In this session we will explore:
- the Lutheran lens through which Lutheran schools can view education
- how Lutheran Education Australia has developed Growing deep, a leadership and formation framework, to support schools to grow deep in their understanding of this Lutheran lens
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10
