In this devotion, Hal Dragseth ’71 M.Div. writes that while perhaps the return of Christ is not regularly a part of our consciousness these days, we can still be vigilant and prepared for the breaking in of God’s rule in the world. Read today’s God Pause.

A Prayer Labyrinth will be set up in the Narthex of OCC. You are invited to come and walk the labyrinth at any time on Friday. Share your prayer requests.
The November PEG (Post-Evangelical Group) meet up is today! It will be at 1 p.m. CT, Friday, November 10, via Zoom.
Topic: Belief vs. Faith
Did the evangelical/fundamentalist tradition you grew up in distinguish between the two? Was one or the other emphasized? How has that changed (or not) since coming to the mainline?
Contact Lauren (lmildahl001) if you have any questions!
As of Monday, November 20, we are integrating the Luther Seminary Community Google calendar and the meeting/events scheduling process into Coursedog, which already houses the course catalog. This change will make it easier for faculty, staff, and students to schedule a meeting or event, reserve space and tech, put an event on the seminary calendar, and see upcoming events at a glance—all in one place.
How will it work?
1) To schedule a meeting or event, reserve a conference room, request tech support for a meeting or event, or put an event on the seminary calendar, select “Event Request” under “Luther Seminary Events” in the right sidebar of inside.luthersem.edu.
2) To see the calendar of upcoming events, select “Upcoming Events” under “Luther Seminary Events” in the right sidebar of inside.luthersem.edu. The Luther Seminary Community Google calendar will be retired as of November 20.
3) To promote your upcoming event to the seminary community, please continue to submit community announcements as usual. However, there will no longer be an option on the form to “submit this event to the community calendar.” You will need to create the event request separately by following the process above. Submitting a community announcement will NOT put your event on the seminary calendar as of November 20.
Need help? Please review this guide to event scheduling or follow along with this video tutorial. Operations/IT staff will also be available to answer questions at a future All Hands meeting and an upcoming Lunch and Learn.
