The Immanuel Symposium is designed to create opportunities for deeper study, discussion, and reflection that might arise during ordinary Bible studies. Each course will consists of 4-6 weeks of focused study on a particular topic, allowing participants to dive deep on subjects that interest them. Unless otherwise noted, sessions are hosted at Immanuel Lutheran Church (1700 Westport Rd. Kansas City, MO 64110), from 7pm to 8pm, and are open to the public. A suggested donation of $35 per participant will provide for course materials and developing future offerings of the Immanuel Symposium. 

We hope you'll join us! 

Coming Up:

Fear, Trembling, and Kierkegaard


Søren Kierkegaard is one of the most enigmatic and influential philosophers of the 19th century. At the next Immanuel Symposium, we'll be taking a deep dive into his book Fear and Trembling, a brilliant exploration of the Binding of Isaac from Genesis 22. It's a troubling story that Kierkegaard uses as a jumping off point to explore the role of faith, ethics, religion, and our place in the universe. 

Join us on Jan. 22, Jan. 29, Feb. 5, and Feb. 12
