Save the Date: November 16 On-Campus Events with Canon Robert Two Bulls
The Luther Seminary community is invited to participate in events scheduled for Tuesday, November 16, on campus. The seminary will welcome Rev. Canon Robert Two Bulls to preach in chapel at 11 a.m. Central. Following chapel, he will join students for fellowship and a conversation guided by the seminary’s artist-in-residence Jess Grams during a light lunch reception in Dining Rooms A and B.
Robert serves as the Missioner for the Department of Indian Work and Multicultural Ministries for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. He spent much of the first two decades of his life off and on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota as a member of the Oglala Lakota Oyate. Over the past 35 years, he has lived, studied, and worked on both the East and West Coasts (spending time in Washington, D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles), and he now resides in South Minneapolis. Since the 1980s, his work within the Episcopal Church has related to Indigenous communities. A well-known artist, Robert has a deep interest in where art and spirituality intersect. After earning a bachelor’s degree in American history at the University of Maryland, He obtained a Master of Divinity from the General Theological Seminary. He was ordained deacon in the Diocese of Utah and priest in the Diocese of Los Angeles.
While the student reception will not be available online, all are encouraged to engage in chapel, which will be live streamed at https://www.luthersem.edu/live/.

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.
