Where: Resurrection Lutheran Church, Granite Bay

Cost/Meals: Lunch will be provided with a suggestion $10 donation

Craig Satterlee is a professor at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, where he holds the Axel Jacob and Gerda Maria (Swanson) Carlson Chair in Homiletics. He is also Dean of the ACTS Doctor of Ministry in Preaching Program and adjunct professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame. He received a B.A. from the University of Michigan, M.Div. and S.T.M. (pastoral care) from Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, Ohio, and M.A. and Ph.D. in Homiletics and liturgical studies from the University of Notre Dame.

Professor Satterlee belongs "to the relatively small group of working homileticians whose work can justifiably be said to have changed the agenda of the discipline." His books are described as "superb examples of practical theology, remaining fully theological while engaging on-the-ground realities in the life of the church."
