Did you know?…. Native American Heritage Month is celebrated throughout the latter half of October and the month of November. In some places, like Minnesota (especially St. Paul and Minneapolis) it replaces the October 12 celebration of Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day. Check out this month’s bibliography on “Indigenous Peoples of North America” at Luther Seminary Library.

Join us for Ministry Matters at 7 p.m. Central October 19!
Ministry Matters is a student led six-month series for Christian public leaders to learn about the LGBTQIA+ community, its unique spiritual past, and the amazing opportunities ministry holds for the community. Each session is 90 minutes and will focus on a key topic/issue.
Ministry Matters Session 1 opens with an overview of LGBTQIA+ issues in the church and personal experience sharing from Rev. Dr. Megan Rohrer (they/he), Bishop of the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Bishop Megan, the first openly transgender pastor ordained in the Lutheran church, was ordained extraordinarily in 2006, one of 18 pastors ordained during the time when the ELCA did not allow LGBT pastors to serve openly. In 2010, Bishop Megan was one of the first seven pastors received into the ELCA after their policies changed.
The Zoom link will be included in the community announcements email.
