New Beginnings for 2022: Select Bibliographic Resources for MLK, DEIB, and RRR
Theme Bibliography: At the beginning of this new year, we celebrate the heritage of MLK—Martin Luther King, Jr. We also launch a renewed focus at Luther Seminary on DEIB—Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.
The final acronym, RRR, is one we’ve made up to emphasize a new focus on Reconciliation and Reversing Racism—all three foci so much needed in today’s church and world. As such we’ve selected important books, journal articles, and other links on these subjects.
Available now in the Luther Seminary Library: New books on justice, politics, social issues.

In the Margins: A Transgender Man’s Journey with Scripture.
December 13, 2022
In this online CLGS Lavender Lunch Father Shannon Kearns explores ideas from his recently-published book In the Margins: A Transgender Man’s Journey with Scripture, which weaves together stories from Shannon’s life into reflections on well-known biblical narratives—such as Jacob wrestling with the divine, Rahab and the Israelite spies, Ezekiel and the dry bones, and the transfiguration of Jesus.
