It's not too late to join CLS's resident "archaeologist online:

The "Archaeology and Jesus" course takes place at the seminary, and online, on Tuesday evenings, and is still open to new registrations.

James Morgan of the Canadian Lutheran posted an article online last Friday titled: Ancient artifacts meet new technology in online course.

“Archaeology enthusiast and seminary professor Dr. Stephen Chambers teaches the course and is extremely pleased with the enrolment. Of the 50 people registered, 18 attend on-site in Edmonton, ten individuals take part online (including two in Ontario), and groups from congregations gather in Saskatoon,Campbell River B.C., and Rocky Mountain House, Alberta.”

“Fitting all the material into two-hour sessions is not easy, but Dr. Chambers covered five of his Top 10 topics of biblical archaeology in the first session. Students saw photos and learned about the ossuaries (burial chests) of James and Caiphas; the Pilate inscription; Yehohanan the crucified man; and the Herodian cities of Caesarea Martima and Jerusalem.”

Even though the first session has already taken place, it is not too late to register. (The first session is recorded so you can catch up!) Anyone can take part from any location. The cost is $40, but the registration fee is waived for pastors, church workers, and individuals who participate as a group at one site.

First Annual Research Forum

On September 11 CLS promoted its first Annual Research Forum. Faculty and a guest presenter discussed the Theological research they completed in the past year.
A graduate school's vocation - as it is for any university - is carried out on a triangular basis, with each point supporting and sustaining the others:
· Teaching (in the sense of formal education)
· Research
· Extension
As an academic place, our school is also a place, then, where knowledge is revisited, built and shared in formal and informal education.
Our seminary supports each professor's research by allocating time and means for formal research. Each year, research projects are received and approved; completed projects are shared with the larger community; and final results of each project are evaluated for publication in various ways: either as research articles in specialized journals, or as a doctoral thesis, or as a book.
The inaugural forum’s guest presenter was Rev. Mark Sander, pastor in Mannsville, AB, who sha…
