Save the date! Next Monday, October 18, and Thursday, October 28, Luther will be hosting a flu vaccination clinic, 11 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in the OCC Atrium. Getting a flu vaccination is the single best way to protect yourself, your coworkers, your family, and our community from the flu (CDC)! You can sign up for a 5-minute slot on this spreadsheet.
Join us in the Chapel of the Incarnation today, Wednesday, October 13, for our weekly service of Holy Communion.
Terri Elton, professor of leadership, will break open the word for us. Music will be led by chapel staff musician Mark Ertl and the Luther Seminary choir.
If you are unable to be physically present, you use this livestream link.
Are you in the Justice and Reconciliation program (either through an M.Div. concentration or as an M.A. student)? Please join in one of two opportunities to connect on October 21. The first is at 8 a.m. Central, and the second is at 6 p.m. Central. Both gatherings will take place on Zoom; the Zoom link will be included in the community announcements email.
This is a great time to share with each other what you care about, and what you’ve learned through your experiences at Luther, with students who are new to our community.
The Luther Seminary community is invited to participate in visiting several sites around the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers that are sacred to the indigenous people of this land.

Time: 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
Meet at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, 1405 Sibley Memorial Highway, St. Paul 55150

A new article has been published in The Concord! The title of this article is: “Asking the Question: From Funding Forward to Creating Awareness,” written by JJ Dollarhide-Godwin (they/them). The article covers the QPR Suicide Awareness Training offered to students and staff of Luther Seminary earlier this fall, and explores how this training came from Professor Grace Pomroy’s Funding Forward class in Spring 2021. The article continues to explore the impact that the training has already had upon the seminary community, and highlights students calling for more suicide awareness and prevention training both at seminaries and in church communities. To read it, you can go directly to the article or visit The Concord’s main website.
Join us in the Chapel of the Incarnation at 11 a.m. Tuesday, October 12, for a Service of Word and Song.
Seminary Pastor Jeni Grangaard will be preaching. Music is led by Mary Preus and Tom Witt. Bergen Eickhoff assisting.
