Speakers and Musicians

27th Festival of Homiletics - 2019 Minneapolis

"Preaching as Moral Imagination"


The Fleshpots of Egypt

Bluegrass Music Group

The Fleshpots of Egypt are an old-time music ensemble from Luther Seminary (St. Paul, MN).  Led by Professor Rolf Jacobson, the Fleshpots include Scott Simmons, Steve Thompson, Mandy Brobst-Renaud, Michael Buller, and Bob Douglas.  Named after the wandering Israelites who longed for the fleshpots of Egypt (Exod 16:3), the Fleshpots add the new wine of 20th-century bluegrassy music to the old wineskins of favorite hymns. . . and hope that nothing bursts.
