Lunch Church x Why Jesus?
This month’s speaker is Dave McEachron, M.Div. Student
“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.
Zoom is available, see the link in the Community Announcements email.
You can also find previous Why Jesus? talks on Moodle.
We are happy to announce our 15th annual Days of Defense, which will be held via Zoom on Monday, May 1, and Tuesday, May 2, 2023 starting at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m. Central Time each day. These are the days when students in the M.A. Professional Degree programs—Leadership and Innovation for Ministry, Christian Ministry, and Children, Youth, and Family—present their final capstone projects centered on a current issue in their concentration area.
To see the schedule of presenters and topics, please click here.
Topics will be updated as information is available.
Please join us for either or both days of learning. If you have questions, please contact Arlene Flancher, Program Coordinator.

Do you want more information about the travel course that I will be leading in the Holy Land during Winter Term 2024? Join me (Prof. Skinner) for an information session on Zoom: Tuesday May 2, beginning at 7 p.m. CT. You’ll receive more information about the course, the requirements for earning academic credit, the trip and itinerary, and the registration process (which will occur much before normal course registration for Winter Term). Be the first to learn some of that information. There will be time to have your questions answered, too. I expect the information will last a total of 30-45 minutes, depending on how many questions people have.
I’ll announce the Zoom link here, in the seminary’s Community Announcements, on the morning of May 2.
I’ll record the session, so if you are unable to attend but still want information, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll send you a link to the recording soon after the session.
The travel dates will be January 28 through February 8, 2024. If you haven’t seen previous announcements about this travel course, you can find more information in the most recent post I put in the Community Announcements back on April 11.
We’re taking you out to the ballgame!
Celebrate the end of the year with a St. Paul Saints baseball game. We have 20 tickets available to students, staff, and faculty (and family)!
We will also carpool, so keep that in mind, but we’ll discuss later! Those who drive for the carpool will be reimbursed for mileage and parking.
If tickets are all claimed before you’ve had your chance you have 2 options:
1. You can sign up for our waitlist in case someone is no longer available.
2. You can buy your own ticket and watch with us, as well as carpool with us! Tickets for “Berm” are $5 + taxes. Buy tickets here:
Excited to watch the game with you!
