Christian Education and Dismantling Racism (EL3539) Format Change
Christian Education and Dismantling Racism, EL3539, is offered as an intensive this coming Winter Term. We are changing the format of that course from in-person to online to accommodate the needs of the instructors. The times will remain the same and residential credit will be given. If you have any questions, please contact Dean Elton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Professor Hess (email@example.com).
Respectful Conversations Town Hall Forum
12-2 p.m. (Lunch to be provided – look for an RSVP form in your email soon!)
OCC Dining Room and on Zoom
The Office of Student Affairs together with the members of the RIC Committee and Luther International Students have been planning a facilitated dialogue and conversation to discuss issues that are significant to our community. This first meeting will focus on the following theme, “What Does it Mean to Belong at Luther Seminary?”
We are partnering with the Respectful Conversations Ministry of the Minnesota Council of Churches and have contracted with Lead Facilitator Joan Haan for this event. Respectful Conversations is based on Christian principles and is aimed at creating a path to strengthening community among people with differing views.
This Respectful Conversation is designed to build empathy, soften hearts, and deepen understanding.
We see the success of this Respectful Conversation depending on the attendance and support of our entire community of faculty, staff and students.
While we would love everyone to have the full experience of the dialogue by being together in the same room, we are also providing a hybrid option for those who need it.
Zoom link will be provided in the community announcements email.
Please remain in prayer for this event and we hope to see you there.
