As I’m developing the upcoming spring offering of Congregational Care and Formation, I’d love to have some imaginative conversation with students on the course design. Whether you’ve already taken the course, will take it in the spring, or will take it sometime in the future, I’d love for you to participate in this “design lab” to think alongside me about the elements of the course (readings, topics, questions, assignments) in ways that will help shape it into what I hope will be a useful, impactful, and transformative course of the future of your ministry. Meet in the Bockman 116 community room, or you can join via Zoom on Monday, Oct. 30 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Light refreshments provided.
In IT this week we are saying farewell to Matt Schornstein who has been in the Augsburg IT department since 2004. Matt has led the infrastructure team since 2011. He and his team run the IT you use daily but don’t see—WiFi, wired networks, servers. Matt has led that team through over a decade of incredible growth and change in technologies. And with the shared services agreement in 2016, he added Luther Seminary’s network to what he oversaw.
We appreciate all that Matt has accomplished and he will be sorely missed. Matt’s last day is Friday, October 27.
