In this devotion, Professor Emeritus James L. Boyce ’71 M.Div. writes that “from creation until the end of time, for good or ill, we are held in the arms of a gracious God long before and after our meager span of life.” Read today’s God Pause.

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.
If you need additional assistance, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
November is National Native American Heritage Month. Luther Seminary, as you may know, “is on Miní Sóta Makhóčhe, the homelands of the Dakhóta Oyáte. The Ojibwe, Ho-Chunk, Cheyenne, Oto, Iowa, and the Sac & Fox also inhabited Minnesota land. We recognize that God calls all to be in right relationship with their neighbors, that the tribes are sovereign nations, that there is a history of broken treaties and broken trust, and that there is much reconciling work to be done. As Christians, we also recognize that in Christ there is new life, forgiveness, and hope for mending what is broken. We pray the Holy Spirit will lead us in this work.”
