“Why Jesus” Talk This Wednesday With Randy Kyle
Our last “Why Jesus” talk for this spring will be at noon this Wednesday, May 25, in OCC 10 (basement classroom). Our speaker will be Randy Kyle, chief human resources officer.
A community meal will be offered that day, so you are invited to get your lunch and then come downstairs to hear Randy offer his testimony.
“Why Jesus” is a series of talks designed to help build community here at Luther and to model the practice of Christian testimony. Speakers focus on two questions: “Why am I a Christian?” And “What difference does Jesus make in my life?”
For those at a distance who wish to participate, please use the Zoom link on this Google doc. You must be logged into your Luther Seminary account to access the document.
