What happens when people no longer have a sense for God’s holiness, when they live as if nothing was sacred any longer? They are unable to enjoy him and his goodness in the church and in the world. In these two sessions 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 through his most holy word by the proclamation of the gospel and the administration of the sacraments in the divine service, so that as his saints we can have access to his holy presence together with his holy angels and serve him as his holy priests already now here on earth.
We look forward to learning from our very first Australian main speaker, Rev Dr John Kleinig, 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!
