Augsburg alumna Jeni Grangaard will be the new full-time pastor at Luther Seminary. This role is part of the integrated Augsburg and Luther Seminary campus ministry team.
Pastor Jeni is an ordained ELCA pastor and graduate of both Luther ‘09 and Augsburg ‘02. She has spent the past four years as a co-country coordinator with the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission Program in Jerusalem and the West Bank, where she worked alongside young adults discerning life in service, community, and vocation. While there, she also served in accompaniment with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land.
Prior to her work in Jerusalem, she was pastor of Glyndon Lutheran Church in Glyndon, Minnesota.
Pastor Jeni, her husband, Colin (also an ELCA pastor), and their two young children are looking forward to making their home in Minnesota once again after their time abroad. Pastor Jeni will start at Luther in the late summer.
Please join me in welcoming Pastor Jeni as she joins the integrated Augsburg and Luther Seminary campus ministry team.

Proposals are invited for workshops that address the conference theme: Dismantling White Supremacy – Its Power, Structures & Culture. Workshops will be offered the afternoons both days of the conference in breakout sessions lasting 90 minutes each. We expect our workshop presenters to create participatory and reflective opportunities for participants to be actively engaged and stimulated.
We seek workshops that enable participants to:
* Acknowledge and confront the construct and legacy of white supremacy in this country
* Identify how white supremacy is embedded in the policies, practices, and structures of the criminal justice, education, housing, wealth accrual, medical, social service, and land usage systems
* Become familiar with tools, resources, and networks available to those who have committed themselves to removing the vestiges of white supremacy from these systems
* Discover ways to further the internal work each of us must do in order to effectively confront institutions long grounded in white supremacy
* Learn from each other about the work currently being done to dismantle white supremacy, and how we can replicate that work in our own communities
* Creatively envision a world without white supremacy in which everyone can flourish
DEADLINE: Proposals must be received by 5:00 pm on July 22nd, 2019
Proposals are invited

You don’t want to miss the next DISCUSSIONS THAT ENCOUNTER next Thursday June 13th. A panel of phenomenal professional black women from the Silent Generation- Generation Y (Millennials) will share candid stories of racism in the workplace. This panel will expose how “MICROAGGRESSIONS” play a major role in the perception of their racial identity.
Thursday, June 13th at St. Olaf Church (215 South 8th Street, Minneapolis.) Free parking is available in the church lot, enter only from 3rd Avenue (just past the church) due to construction on 8th Street. Supper and social begin at 6:30PM with program from 6:45-8:30PM. All are welcome, free of charge!
For over twelve years, Discussions that Encounter has facilitated open discussions about race, racism and white privilege. These events are open to all and sponsored free of charge in Minneapolis on the second and fourth Thursday evening of each month. Our vision is to provide an environment where people of all walks-of-life and backgrounds can openly discuss any aspects of racism. We use video or prepared materials to pursue a specific topic with ample time for facilitated conversation. The objectives of these forums are to raise awareness, build relationships, assist all along the journey of overcoming racism, provide education on historical and current topics, and facilitate open conversations that can’t usually be approached across the “races.”
Notices are sent prior to each Discussion Forum with details on topic, location and directions. Contact Bill Keatts to receive information or to be added to the regular distribution. email@example.com
Previews of coming Discussion Forums:
6/27/19 at Plymouth Congregational Church – Jim Bear Jacobs, Director of Racial Justice at Minnesota Council of Churches, will lead us in discussion about Indigenous issues, his work in generating community discussions, and his long-standing leadership of tours of the Bdote area (junction of Minnesota & Mississippi Rivers).
