Join your peers and Dr. Alan Padgett in an engaging conversation about Ecotheology for Lutherans: How our Environmental Crisis and Work for Eco-Justice is Re-Shaping Christian Doctrine! We’ll have a wonderful time in fellowship and good conversation! We look forward to seeing you there!
Appetizers, as usual, are provided!
The Eco-Faith team is growing a garden! There are currently ripening strawberries, tomato plants growing like crazy, zucchini plants plotting their takeover, onions, mums, and sunflowers.
So – if you want to contemplate the mysterious beauty of food and flowers springing forth from the earth, take a look. The garden is on top of the hill to the left of Gullixson Hall. It is behind a white picket fence. (Please don’t pick anything – there are plans in place for the food.)
