Emelie will be hosting a virtual coffee chat for students on their Zoom today, Friday, from 1–2 p.m. CT. See community announcements email for link.
The goal of this hour is for LGBTIA+ and allied students to come in and discuss changes they would like to see happen at Luther. No idea is too big. This space is for students not currently working within the advocacy group, nor is it for members of leadership, faculty, or staff—there will be separate coffee chats. You don’t need to stay the whole hour—just come, speak your piece, and you can leave! This is especially great if you’re a DL student who will not be attending our Ice Cream Social during the RFS! Grab a cuppa, and come on by!
During the Fall RFS, warm up those vocal cords ’cause it is Hymntap night! Join us on September 18 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Dubliner Pub (2162 University Ave.) for a night of drinks and singing led by Professor Rolf Jacobson and the Fleshpots of Egypt.
If you are interested in coming to the Hymntap on Monday, we welcome you to carpool to the Dubliner. Use this link to sign up for carpool.
Pizza will be provided by Student Affairs. Hope to see you all there!
This summer over 50 students, staff and faculty met in book clubs to read “Healing Resistance: A Radically Different Response to Harm.” Now everyone in the Luther Sem Community is invited to join our culminating event, a Q&A Session with the author Kazu Haga!
We’ll be meeting on Tuesday, September 19 from 2:30-4 p.m. Central Time to hear him answer questions (over Zoom) about the book and about the practice of Kingian Nonviolence. Join in person in the OCC Dining Room or online via Zoom. See community announcements email for link.
You don’t have to have read the book or participated in the book clubs to join! The session will be recorded. Hope to see you there! Any questions, reach out to email@example.com.
Please join the CPE team at Luther to learn more about Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE), how to apply, and where to go for questions. We will gather on Tuesday, September 19 in OCC Aux Room 148 at 12:30 p.m. and on Zoom. Lunch will be provided for those who are able to meet in person. Please RSVP if you plan to join us in person or on Zoom!
