Actions Steps for LGBTQI2A Allyship
Reminder that our second session with Austen Hartke is 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Central this Friday, November 12. Use this Zoom link to join us. The passcode will be included in the community announcements email.
Now that we know more about LGBTQI2A people, how can we be better neighbors, coworkers, and friends? In this session we’ll be going over interpersonal and institutional actions we can take to make our communities places of abundant life for everyone.
Austen Hartke is the author of “Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians,” published by Westminster John Knox Press in 2018. He is also the founder and director of Transmission Ministry Collective, an online community dedicated to the spiritual care, faith formation, and leadership potential of transgender and gender-expansive Christians. He is a graduate of Luther Seminary’s Master of Arts program in Old Testament/Hebrew Bible Studies, and is the winner of the 2014 John Milton Prize in Old Testament Writing from the same institution. As a transgender person of faith, Austen’s greatest passion is helping other trans and gender-expansive people see themselves in Scripture.

Community Prayer Partners Sign Up – November 8-12
Prayer is an important spiritual practice and can provide hope, strength, and encouragement. During this season we want to continue a campus ritual of creating Community Prayer Partners.
Community Prayer Partners are Luther Seminary students, faculty, and staff. We ask you to commit to pray for one person. We will gather names, emails, and prayer requests through a Google form. You will be matched with someone.
Place their name in a conspicuous, frequently seen place like your laptop screen, desktop, or mirror. Pray every time you see your prayer partner’s name. It is our desire this powerful prayer ritual will grant people strength, hope, and peace.
Use this form to sign up.
