Thursday, April 8 – Special Conversation
Today we will have a special conversation on Jewish-Christian relations led by Rabbi Brad Hirschfield and Professor Matt Skinner. Rabbi Hirschfield and Professor Skinner will focus especially on how Jews and Christians benefit from acknowledging our shared and particular identities, discussing our common and distinctive ways of interpreting scripture, and speaking honestly about the wrongs we have suffered and perpetrated. We are grateful to have this time together to share in meaningful dialogue and learning. We hope you can join us at 11 a.m. Central on Zoom.

Until the end of the semester we will gather on Fridays, 9-9:45 a.m. Central, via Zoom for a time of check-in, prayer, and Bible conversation so we can continue to share, encourage, and grow with one another. This group is open to anyone in our Luther community including staff, faculty, students, and friends of Luther Seminary.
We would love to see some familiar (or new!) faces and build connections even as we remain virtual at this time. Grab a snack or a cup of coffee, bring your Bible and of course your wonderful self! We hope to see you virtually at 9 a.m. April 16.
For those of you students, staff, and faculty at Luther that are wanting to continue in your intercultural development, we have a four-part series designed to help you do just that. We will meet at noon Central. The dates will be:
