11:30 a.m. – "Here We Stand: The Values of Augustana"
Tredway Library, south end
Speaker: Jason Peters

Tradition has it that on October 31, 1517 Martin Luther posted Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg . Thus began a long tradition of Lutherans taking public positions on issues as a way of sparking debate—and even reformation.

In the September 2007 issue of Acknowledge , President Bahls made the comment:
Now, in this new year, I'd like to suggest that we all be more intentional about the deeper questions of vocation. Who are we as a community of learners, teachers and fellow travelers? How does the mission of the college inform the way we do our work and the manner in which we relate to one another?

As a response to the call of President Bahls to discuss the vocation of the College and in the Lutheran tradition of spirited public conversations, the Center for Vocational Reflection announces a series of conversations on the topic of “The Values of Augustana.” We are imagining these to be short presentations by faculty and staff exploring a value (or set of values) of Augustana and examining the implications of those values for Augustana at this point in our story. The CVR will provide the venue (south end of the library—until we outgrow the space), the snacks (coffee and the usual CVR goodies), and a small stipend for those who present their thoughts ($100—for a good book or two).

If you would like to present your ideas for conversation, contact Bob Haak in the CVR . Please contribute to the conversation at the first talk featuring the always provocative.
