Center for Vocational Reflection
For the past weeks a group of Augustana students, faculty and administrators have gathered around the question “How do we accompany students as they discern a call to ministry?” We’ve looked at questions concerning the nature of ministry, who is or should be exploring, where these students are connecting or disconnecting, and what questions they are asking. Tonight, Monday, September 22, at 5pm we will have an open meeting in Carlsson Evald 104 to discuss the how we connect with these students. If you know of students who are exploring ministry, please encourage them to attend this meeting so that we can create something that meets their needs.
Stone Lecture in Judaism
Can you use an expert on Israel and the Middle East in your classes? Jonathan Adelman will be giving the annual Stone Lecture in Judaism on September 25th (Olin 7PM) on the topic “Israel Among the Nations.” He can discuss a wide range of issues in the area of international relations. He will be on campus the afternoon of his lecture. Would you like to make use of his expertise? Contact Bob Haak at -8614.
Chicago Seminary Trip
September 28-29 a group from Augustana will head to Chicago to visit various seminaries in the Hyde Park area. Students will spend Monday touring campus, attending classes, meeting with admissions, faculty and students and immersing themselves in the culture of the seminaries/ graduate schools. Students may select from any of the following schools: Catholic Theological Union (Roman Catholic), Chicago Theological Seminary (UCC), Lutheran Theological Seminary at Chicago (ELCA), McCormick Theological Seminary (Presbyterian), Meadville/Lombard Theological School (Unitarian Universalist), and the University of Chicago (Non-Denominational). If you know students interested in graduate theological education, please encourage them to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
