Date Change – Join us for Ministry Matters at 7 p.m. Central March 29
Ministry Matters Session 4 focuses on inclusivity and the church. Pastor Jeni Grangaard will moderate a question and answer session with Nadia Bolz-Weber about how the church addresses or misses the goal of inclusivity especially for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Ministry Matters is a student led six-month series for Christian public leaders to learn about the LGBTQIA+ community, its unique spiritual past, and the amazing opportunities ministry holds for the community. Each session is 90 minutes and will focus on a key topic/issue.
Call for Submissions for Prizes in Old Testament and New Testament
The Bible Division invites M.Div. and M.A. seniors (both December 2021 and June 2022 graduates) to submit papers for consideration for the Milton Prize for outstanding work in Old Testament and/or the Bruce Prize for outstanding work in New Testament. These prizes will be awarded at commencement and they include monetary awards, as well as bragging rights (a few current members of the Bible Division won these prizes as students here at Luther Seminary).
The papers submitted may be course papers, independent study projects, or papers written for this occasion. Papers should not exceed 6,000 words in length.
Learn more about the Milton prize and the Bruce prize.
The deadline for submitting papers is April 27, 2022.
Questions? Contact Prof. Kathryn Schifferdecker, chair of the Bible Division (firstname.lastname@example.org).
“Why Jesus” Talk with Professor Michael Binder March 23
The Luther Seminary community is invited to hear Professor Michael Binder share his personal faith story on Wednesday, March 23. Professor Binder will address these two questions: “Why am I a Christian?” and “What difference does Jesus make in my life?”
This talk is part of a speaker series here at Luther Seminary called “Why Jesus?” The “Why Jesus” series was begun in the spring of 2019 by a group of faculty, staff, and students who were seeking to practice and model the Christian custom of testimony – sharing faith stories and witnessing to God’s work in our lives. The series, interrupted by the pandemic, will resume this spring, with one speaker every month (March 23, April 27, May 25).
Lunch will be provided for those in person. Those unable to attend in person can participate via Zoom. The talk will be held in Dining Room C in the Olson Campus Center on Wednesday, March 23, after chapel, noon-1 p.m. Central.
A Zoom link will be provided early next week.
Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Petition
You are invited to sign the RIC petition.
We call upon the Board of Directors to open discussions with the Student Council’s RIC committee immediately, and to ultimately vote to endorse the proposal for Luther to explore becoming Reconciling in Christ (RIC). We need your support. Let’s push this over 500 signatures! For questions or concerns please email Lauren Mildahl (lmildahl001) or Stephanie Newman (snewman001). Thank you!
Exciting Proposal Opportunity for Students Only
The deadline is coming up soon! This year the Student Council is inviting students to apply for a small grant. All proposals awarded must be used for Luther Seminary students and must align with Luther Seminary’s Welcome, Mission, and Vision Statements. Proposal and funds must be completed from April-June 2022. We do not have a cap amount to ask for funds but it will be in the form of a reimbursement. That means we will not be able to send funds without receipts. The Student Council will review all proposals and determine the winners.
Interested? Send your proposal to email@example.com.
March 25: Application Deadline by 5 p.m. Central
April 5: Winners will be announced by the Student Council
