Our announcement seeking student representatives to the Word & World board mentioned physical attendance at our three board meetings across the school year. Obviously in this time of COVID-19 we are not meeting physically, so that is not a consideration for the upcoming year.
We as a seminary community pause to honor George Floyd and participate in his memorial service from 1 to 3 p.m. Central today, June 4. All are encouraged to attend the virtual stream. Details here: https://www.northcentral.edu/george-floyd-family-memorial-service/
For those who would like to watch the service in community, please join us on Zoom: https://luthersem.zoom.us/my/sempastor. The password will be provided in an email message of this announcement.
Luther Seminary will gather as a wider community to participate in George Floyd’s memorial service at 1 p.m. Central today. More details will come in a second community announcement later this morning.
Students are eligible to receive reimbursement for up to $300 in counseling and/or spiritual direction services each fiscal year. This is a reminder that our fiscal year ends on June 30, 2020. If you have receipts for reimbursement from counseling and/or spiritual direction that took place between July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020, those receipts must be submitted by Friday, July 3.
Please submit receipts or a paid invoice to email@example.com.

Are you interested in participating in Word & World as a student member of the editorial board?
Word & World is the quarterly journal of theology for Christian ministry published by the faculty of the seminary. Its work is guided by the staff and an editorial board made up of seven members of the Luther faculty and two students. The students are full voting members of the board. Both student slots are open for next year, starting July 1, 2020.
Membership on the board is voluntary and unsalaried, but students do get the opportunity to participate in the life of a significant theological journal. Duties include regular attendance at board meetings (perhaps two or three per semester) and thoughtful contribution to the board’s work, including bringing ideas for issues and authors. All students, in any program, are eligible, though applicants must be close enough to campus to be physically present at regular meetings and other possible journal-related events.
If you would like to be a student board member for 2020-21 please reply both to Professor Cameron Howard (board chair) and Professor Mark Granquist (editor) with a note that spells out your interest in the position, your availability to serve, and your qualifications. Include your year, program, and anticipated graduation date. Applications are due by August 15, 2020. Let me know if you have further questions.
