We will not have Pizza Tuesday on April 19 and 26 because there are no classes on campus those days.
Bible Madness has ended! And the winner is…….
The Gospel of Luke!!!!!!!!!
The Gospel of Luke has survived the Final Judgment to win the title of Best Book in the Bible (among our readers). And for good reason! Think about the essential passages of faith found only in Luke. The feminist verses of liberation in the Magnificat! The Parable of the Prodigal Son! The revelation of resurrection on the Road to Emmaus! Also there’s something about a Good Samaritan, but I don’t think anyone has ever read that story.
Thank you all for participating in this tournament of Bible Madness! It literally could not have happened without you, and we hope that it gave you some joy and fascination during this Lenten season! Hope you had a happy Holy Week!
Student Representative Positions on the Word & World Board for 2022-23
Word & World is the faculty journal for Luther Seminary, and its purpose is to publish articles and information on theology for Christian ministry. Every year we invite two Luther Seminary students (any degree program) to serve as student representatives to the journal’s governing board. The purpose is to gain input from future theological leaders about our publishing program. Duties are basically to attend two to three meetings a year and to act as a sounding board for our plans. More engagement with the journal is possible, but not a condition for application. For information on Word & World see our website.
To apply for one of these two positions, send a letter of application to the editor, Professor Mark Granquist, at email@example.com. Letters should explain why you are applying for this position, what you can bring to the position, and how you think that this experience would benefit you and the journal. Applications are due by Friday, May 6.
Student Council received and voted on four proposals from students to receive the funds requested. Congratulations to John Brett (street ministry gathering in San Francisco, California), Brian Moeller (Faith Through Adversity – Internship Final Project in O’Fallon, Illinois), Alexander O’Connell (Believer’s Brew – theological discussions beyond church in Fargo, North Dakota) and Jonathan Rundman (Nordic Lutheran Liturgy/Hymnody research in Finland and Sweden), who all received the grants! God continues to bless your ministries. The student council treasurer will be in touch with you for further details.
