Join us in person or online (see community announcements email for link) Thursday from 11 a.m.–12 p.m. central for Lunch Church x Why Jesus. Marie Hayes, Director, International Student & Scholar Affairs, is our speaker. “Why Jesus” is a series of talks designed to help build community here at Luther and to model the practice of Christian testimony. Speakers (faculty, staff, and students) focus on two questions: “Why am I a Christian?” And “What difference does Jesus make in my life?” Lunch is provided.
Three finalists have been invited on campus and will do a public presentation on October 26, 27, and November 1. The candidates have requested that we hold their names in confidence until the day of the interview. All presentations are scheduled for 12:30–1:30 p.m. in OCC 10. Please come and support the candidates and listen to their presentations. For those who can’t attend in person, Zoom link will be provided in the community announcements email.
All Saints celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ. As November heralds the dying of the landscape in many northern regions, the readings and liturgy call us to remember all who have died in Christ and whose baptism is complete.
We will gather as a community to observe All Saints on:
- Tuesday, November 1 at 11 a.m. outdoors in the Garden of the Resurrection
- Wednesday, November 2 at 11 a.m. in the Chapel of the Incarnation
Please fill out this form to include the names of people who have died in the past year that we can offer in our Wednesday liturgy.
Following Chapel on October 28, Dillon Swanson will give a brief organ recital as an extended postlude to the preceding chapel service. The program is scheduled to include works by J. S. Bach, Reger, Howells, Dupré, and more.
Join us in the lounge in Bockman Hall on Thursday, November 3 at 3 p.m. for a Mindful Sketching Session. No drawing skills are required. Dr. Thomason will guide the group in an exercise that uses simple sketching techniques to become fully present in the moment. This is an excellent form of contemplation and relaxation.
Bring a sketchbook (any form of paper works) and a writing utensil (pen, pencil, paints, whatever you use to make marks).
You can join the Google Space to keep in touch with other Mindful Sketchers.
