Did you know Augsburg has three Interfaith Fellows available as resources to your class or group this academic year?
The Augsburg Interfaith Fellows are charged with deepening and extending Augsburg’s calling to inter-religious engagement, preparing students to live and serve in contexts of religious pluralism. Their work is coordinated by the newly created Interfaith at Augsburg: An Institute to Promote Inter-Religious Leadership and the Batalden Chair of Ethics.
Busshō Lahn is a Senior Priest at the Minnesota Zen Meditation Center. This will be Bussho’s second year as an Interfaith Fellow. “I wish to keep offering myself as a resource on Zen, Buddhism, meditation, and mindfulness to classes & students in whatever capacity I can. I have a relatively flexible schedule, with normal class/working hours being especially available. I’d love to meet more Auggies!” Contact: email@example.com
Chris Stedman is a humanist community organizer, interfaith activist, and writer living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. “I especially love visiting classes and engaging in conversation with students about humanism, secular worldviews, interfaith work, and my own undergraduate experience at Augsburg. Please reach out if you have any ideas or questions about ways we might work together.” Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
