As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect daily life across the world, Holy Trinity’s leaders are closely monitoring the State of Minnesota and the CDC’s recommendations for activity during the pandemic. As we know, public gatherings have been suspended. While we look forward to the day when we can safely gather again, the health, safety, and well-being of our community remain our highest priority.
Unable to anticipate when the restrictions on large group gatherings will be lifted and after thoughtful deliberation, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Johnson Symposium on Faith and Society. We made this decision to exercise an abundance of caution, in keeping with our deep and abiding love for the neighbor. We pray that the pandemic will be eradicated from our global community before the fall of 2021, and we will again be able to welcome participants to the Johnson Symposium.
About the Johnson Symposium
Holy Trinity has long sought to provide opportunities for conversations about faith and life. Designed to celebrate and honor the exemplary ministries of Pastors Ronald K. Johnson and Stacy K. Johnson during a creative and exciting period in the life of the congregation, the Johnson Symposium on Faith and Society is envisioned as an annual event in which a leading theologian, scholar, and/or practitioner will be present to lead conversations over a two day period on important issues facing the church and society today.
