In May 2021 all schools and early childhood centres were sent copies of The Lutheran Theological Journal (LTJ) supplement with papers to provide a launch pad for discussion and debate.
An electronic version of the papers can be found here
If you would also like to engage in discussion about these papers in an online forum with the national Lutheran education community, we have scheduled a series of one hour LEArning circles with the authors.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the sessions you would like to attend and we will arrange for the Zoom link to be sent to you.
