Interfaith @ Cedar Commons: Lost In Translation

submitted by svanoe@augsburg.edu

“INTERFAITH @ CEDAR COMMONS: LOST IN TRANSLATION”
Next Thursday, Sept 28th 6:30-8:30pm

Religious language can carry heavy meaning. Some words hold sweet memories or deep significance for us, while other words might be associated with painful experiences, exclusion or just feel flat and dead.

Sometimes the language of our own cultural context does not translate clearly to people outside of our tradition. Even those within a religious tradition often don’t have access to the languages in which sacred texts were originally written. How much meaning is lost in translation?

Join us for a meal and an evening of discussion around the language of faith and all the complexity of communicating about deeply held values and beliefs.

Do you need to be a “person of faith” to come? Absolutely not. We welcome anyone with interest in conversation about how faith/spirituality shape our lives and intersect with the issues we care about.

Hosted by: Interfaith @ Cedar Commons organizer team and the Augsburg Interfaith Scholars.

(Cedar Commons, part of Augsburg, is at 2001 Riverside Ave. S – below Trinity’s offices)

Rayuela Festival of Latin American Music

submitted by moyar@augsburg.edu

The Rayuela Festival takes a playful approach to Latin American music and culture. The Festival aims to embrace a wide variety of chamber music repertoire, showcase talented musicians, and provide a platform for Latin American composers.

This year, the festival will consist of two performances in Sateren Auditorium at Augsburg University.

In the first concert of the Rayela Festival 2017, pianist Matthew McCright performs Reinaldo Moya’s cycle for solo piano, The Way North.

The Way North depicts the journey of a Central American migrant through Mexico and their eventual arrival in the United States. The work consists of a series of short vignettes that capture the emotional, physical and psychological tolls that these people make as they make their way north in search of a better life for themselves and their families. A piece full of force, anguish, but also hope and beauty, The Way North is a pianistic tour de force.

In the second concert of the Rayuela Festival, musicians from the Twin Cities come together to perform exciting works by Latin American composers.

2017 Christensen Symposium – Today

submitted by glasere@augsburg.edu

Join us on Thursday, September 21 as we welcome ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton for the 2017 Christensen Symposium!

Morning Event: Christensen Symposium Address by Bishop Eaton
Interfaith Friendships: How Difference Can Bring Us Together
11 a.m. – 12 p.m. in Hoversten Chapel, 625 22nd Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55454
To mark the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, Augsburg is hosting a series of events this fall. As the first event in this series, Bishop Eaton’s address, “Interfaith Friendships: How Difference Can Bring Us Together,” will explore Lutheran identity and the ongoing Reformation in the 21st century.

Afternoon Event: #DecolonizeLutheranism Community Panel with Bishop Eaton
2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. in Hoversten Chapel, 625 22nd Ave South, Minneapolis, MN 55454
The #DecolonizeLutheranism grassroots movement challenges long-held patterns of white power and privilege in the ELCA and exclusivity associated with stereotypes regarding what it means to be Lutheran.

The topic for Bishop Eaton’s address and the focus of the panel conversation speak to the rich and increasing diversity of the Augsburg community; the priorities reflected in Augsburg’s mission, vision, and values; the urban and global contexts that shape Augsburg’s vocation; and Augsburg’s deep grounding in, and vibrant relationship with, the Lutheran Church. Join us for this day of challenging conversations as together we envision what it means to be neighbor in a richly diverse world.

Questions? Email ccv@augsburg.edu

We hope to see you there!

Please Note:
We regret this event was scheduled on Rosh Hashanah. Prayers for God’s blessings on Jewish people throughout the world during their high holy days.

These sessions will be audio recorded. If you would like to be alerted as soon as the audio is available, please email ccv@augsburg.edu
