Transition in Grace Pomroy’s Role
In the fall, Grace Pomroy and her husband plan to move to Washington state. In order to accommodate this transition in location, Grace’s role will shift from a “faculty and staff dual role” to a “staff with teaching responsibilities” role beginning July 1, 2022. While Grace will continue teaching both Funding Forward and Money & the Mission of the Church, she will no longer be an official member of the faculty. She will continue to be the director of the Stewardship Leaders Program, lead Luther’s financial wellness program, conduct research on more sustainable economic models for ministry, and help faith leaders and everyday disciples view their lives with money through a lens of faith. Grace will be working remotely and return to campus regularly. She looks forward to maintaining the rich relationships she has created with Luther’s staff, faculty, and students. If you have questions about Grace’s transition, please contact Dwight Zscheile email@example.com or Rolf Jacobson firstname.lastname@example.org.

Farewell to Karen Gieseke
Dear Luther Community,
After nearly seven years of leadership in the contextual learning office, Karen Gieseke is ending her time with us. We are forever grateful for a colleague who has approached life from a place of abundance! She brought leadership to multiple areas at Luther Seminary: boundary workshops, teaching Strengths based leadership, tending internship teams, and leading Internship Cluster retreats for the ELCA Regions 1 and 3.
We will miss her creative and innovative spirit, and wish her well as she embraces new vocations and adventures in the years to come! If you’d like to express your well wishes and thanks to Karen, please do so on this Google form.
All other well wishes regarding this transition may be sent directly to Karen at her Luther email address: firstname.lastname@example.org prior to her final day, Friday, June 24.
