2021 – Holy, Holy, Holy
The 12th Corpus Christi Conference
Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany
19-23 July 2021
What happens when people no longer have a sense for God’s holiness, when they live as if nothing was sacred any longer? By their blindness to the beauty of his holiness they live in a grey, spiritually polluted world with a diminished capacity for their enjoyment of him and his goodness. In these talks I intend to examine the surprising teaching of holiness in the Bible and show how the triune God purifies us from spiritual pollution and shares his holiness with us in the divine service, so that as his saints we can share in his glory and live heavenly lives with the angels already now here on earth.
Rev. Dr. John Kleinig (Professor Emeritus at Luther College, Adelaide, Australia)
We are thankful and excited that Rev. Dr. John Kleinig again has accepted our invitation to be the main speaker in 2021 on the condition that he remains in good health and the corona virus situation improves. This will be our very first Australian main speaker! Rev. Dr. John Kleinig is a highly experienced Biblical and practical theologian. After serving as a pastor in Melbourne and Brisbane, he taught at the Australian Lutheran College in North Adelaide for almost three decades. Generations of students have benefitted from the clarity, conviction and liveliness of his biblically-grounded presentations. His areas of special interest range from the liturgy and hymnody to spirituality and especially to the Old Testament. Married to his musical wife Claire, he is a father of four children and a proud grandfather of ten grandchildren. His hobbies include fishing, gardening, reading novels, viewing films, and doing nothing. In order to get to know him and his work in advance, check out his YouTube channel or his website johnkleinig.com!
