Dear Luther community,
Gary Simpson, Professor of Systematic Theology and the Northwestern Lutheran Theological Seminary Chair of Theology, will be retiring upon the conclusion of the 2019-20 academic year, on August 31, 2020. Professor Simpson has taught at Luther Seminary since 1990, before which he spent fourteen years as a Lutheran pastor in California, Missouri, and Oregon.
We are deeply grateful for Professor Simpson’s service to the Luther Seminary community over the past thirty years, and for the generations of faithful leaders he has taught and mentored. Please join me in congratulating Professor Simpson on this important milestone, and thanking him for his many years of service to the mission of Luther Seminary!

WHY JESUS? A SPIRITUAL FORMATION EXPERIMENT
Today, Wednesday Nov 13th after chapel, come join us for Why Jesus? It is our community’s experiment on spiritual formation and story sharing. This event is supported by Aus Memorial Lecture on Evangelism and Spirit Lab. We will have Dr. Michael Chan, Assistant Professor of the Old Testament, sharing his story of faith and answering these two key questions: Why are you a Christian? What difference does Jesus make in your life?
Come and support Dr. Chan! We will meet at our regular place in Dining Room C from noon-12:45pm. Soup and bread will be provided.
*Not on campus? The faith stories will be posted in Community Life Facebook.
