MnMN’s 2022 Annual Conference – Sacred Creation in Crisis: Strengthening the Multifaith Response in Minnesota with speakers Dr. Kelly Sherman Conroy and faith leaders.
The Minnesota Multifaith Network, of which Luther Seminary is an organizational member, is gathering Minnesota’s faith leaders and practitioners, multifaith activists, scholars, community leaders, and artists on October 12, 2022 to celebrate and express our wonder for creation, learn from each other’s wisdom, and find common ground for acting together.
This year’s conference, “Sacred Creation in Crisis: Strengthening the Multifaith Response in Minnesota,” supports the United Nations (UN) declaration that “access to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment is a universal human right.” Faith leaders and interfaith organization leaders will have separate spaces over lunch to discuss how to work together for climate justice. The conference is being planned in cooperation with Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light. Register here.
The custodial staff will be vacuuming campus offices once a week and removing recycling and trash at the same time. If you have excess trash/recycling please set your trash container outside your office door for removal. At this time of the year mice are entering buildings looking for food. Please properly store foods and dispose of containers and foods regularly.
