Presented by Dr. Mark Tranvik, Professor at Luther Seminary Martin Luther was a radical! He saw with great clarity that at the heart of the Bible is a God of freedom and grace. His bold teaching led to trouble: he was denounced as a heretic and nearly burned at the stake. Come and find out why his life and words still matter for all people today. Select “Luther Seminary Student” in the payment field to have the fee waived.
Everyone on-campus during the first January RFS (January 9–13) is invited to participate in the Eco-Faith Team’s Stuff Exchange.
On Tuesday, January 10, make sure to attend chapel at 11 a.m. to listen to Dr. Padgett preach on an eco-faith theme and join us for a reception afterwards with hot drinks and baked goods. Let’s celebrate the abundance of community together!
All week, tables will be set-up in the “triangle area” in the upper part of OCC, across from the Cafe. Everyone is invited to participate in the Stuff Exchange: simply bring gently used items to contribute if you have them and take home items that you would use. It will be our own thrift shop–exchanging to prevent unnecessary purchases and waste. Distributed Learning students: pack something to exchange if you have room! Bags to carry items home will be provided.
Items may include: clothing, books, small appliances, picture frames, video games, instruments—whatever! Please make sure items are clean (please wash before bringing clothes) and usable. Please no swimwear or undergarments. Leftover items will be donated Friday night after the RFS.
The previous announcement about United Methodist History is not correct. The course meets History 2 requirements *only* for ecumenical MDiv students from denominations in the Wesleyan, Methodist, Holiness or related traditions.
