On Wednesday 11/20, recognizing international Transgender Day of Remembrance, we continue our space for vigil in the Chapel of the Cross (Northwestern Hall). There, you can read names and stories of those who have died, take time for prayer, and fill cards with names of gender diverse people close to your heart, to be recognized during Thursday chapel time. Enter the space for vigil at your own time, during regular building hours.

Spots Still Available for Holy Land Travel Course in Fall 2020
During Fall Semester 2020, Luther Seminary will offer the travel course “The Holy Land: Its People, Places, and Prayers” (CD 1613), taught by Prof. Matthew Skinner. The course will be built around a trip to parts of Israel and the West Bank from Monday October 26, 2020, through Friday November 6, 2020.
Spots in the travel course are limited and are being reserved now. A few spots are still available. They are open to students who will be enrolled in a seminary program in Fall Semester 2020.
COSTS (approximate, but fairly reliable estimates at this point in time):
>>> Approx. $2300 for students (those enrolled at the seminary during Fall Semester 2020), PLUS tuition for academic credit earned at Luther Seminary
>>> Approx. $4300 for nonstudents (family and friends of participating students receive priority for these limited spots; any remaining spots for nonstudents can be filled first by Luther Seminary alumni/ae)
HOW TO SIGN UP:
To reserve one of the remaining spots or to learn more about the opportunity, see the link in the informational document available here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1N9paHx0XCDnZBsm7krIhTphDQ-tcxzWc.
