WLC Theology Department to host Dr. Samuel Scheibler

MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Lutheran College Theology Department, in conjunction with the Faculty Co-curricular Committee, will host Dr. Samuel Scheibler, Vicar at St. Edmund's Anglican Church in Elm Grove, Wis., on Tuesday, March 31 at 7 p.m.

Dr. Scheibler and St. Edmund's parish have recently been in the news in Milwaukee for breaking away from the Episcopal Church in the United States and joining the Convocation of Anglicans of North America, part of the more conservative Anglican Church of Nigeria. The break occurred over issues of biblical authority and the ordination of homosexuals.

Dr. Sheible's presentation, "Alone at the Table: The Biblical Crisis in Mainline Churches," will take place in room 109 of the Science Hall.
