submitted by glasere@augsburg.edu

Greetings Augsburg Students, Faculty, and Staff!

Are you interested in discussions concerning faith and interfaith dialogue? Are you curious about the various ways the term ‰”calling” plays into the lives of people of differing faiths? If so, consider attending this thought-provoking event!

On Thursday, February 2 at 6:30 p.m. in Oren Gateway Center Room 100, Augsburg will be hosting ‰”Calling in Today‰’s World: Multifaith Perspectives‰” an event aimed at discovering how and if different faiths share similar senses of calling as Christians do in their concept of vocation.

Mark Berkson is professor and chair in the Department of Religion at Hamline University. His work on Confucian and Daoist thought has appeared in numerous books and journals. His lecture series for the Great Courses, Cultivating Literacy for Religion, was released in 2012. His current project is Death, Immortality and the Afterlife: A Comparative Perspective.

Rabbi Amy Eilberg, the first woman ordained a rabbi in Judaism‰’s Conservative Movement, teaches and practices inter-religious and intra-Jewish dialogue. Deeply involved in the work of peace and reconciliation, she is the author of From Enemy to Friend: Jewish Wisdom and the Pursuit of Peace (Orbis Books, 2014).

Fardosa Hassan is Muslim Student Program Associate at Augsburg College. She also works as the Interfaith Youth Connection Program Coordinator at Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul.

The event will be moderated by Martha Stortz, the Bernhard M. Christensen Professor of Religion and Vocation at Augsburg College. She is the author of A World According to God: Practices for Putting Faith at the Center of Your Life and Blessed to Follow: The Beatitudes As a Compass for Discipleship.

Film Screening: Disturbing the Peace

submitted by hermansb@augsburg.edu

Disturbing the Peace follows former enemy combatants‰–Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison–who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers to nonviolent peace activists leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. They stand in a long line of individuals‰–from Gandhi, to MLK Jr., to Rosa Parks‰–willing to “disturb the peace,” in an effort to move us all toward a more just and peaceful world.

The Minneapolis screening will take place here at Augsburg’s campus:
When: Wednesday, February 8 from 7-9 p.m.
Where: Sateren Auditorium, Augsburg College, 2211 Riverside Avenue

The premiere will be followed by a discussion with members of Combatants for Peace and moderated by UMN Theater Professor Sonja Kuftinec.

Co-sponsored by: University of Minnesota Department of Theatre Arts & Dance and Institute for Advanced Study, Augsburg College — Nobel Peace Prize Forum, and East Side Freedom Library

Note: The film does contain some scenes of graphic violence from the conflict in Israel and Palestine.

NAS report attacks higher ed civic engagement

submitted by eschenba@augsburg.edu

A new report was released recently by the National Association of Scholars (NAS) called, Making Citizens: How Universities Teach Civics. The report targets “the civic engagement movement” in higher education which the authors claim is aimed at turning today’s younger generation of students, both college and K-12, into left wing activists. This includes service learning, various kinds of civic engagement and community involvement. NAS is planning a state by state campaign with state legislators to defund service learning and other kinds of community involvement.

Augsburg is highlighted in the report for its long history in service learning and experiential education, and a great deal of attention is given specifically to Public Achievement, the Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship’s youth empowerment initiative, and our theory of public work. NAS has invited Harry Boyte to submit a response to the report.

Before submitting his response, he invites feedback on the draft. Please join the Sabo Center on:
January 24, 2017, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
OGC 100
Michael Lansing will kick off the session with reflections on background of the report in the cultural wars of recent years, then we will discuss the draft.

Here is the link to Boyte’s draft response, please read it before the session on the 24th.

Disturbing the Peace (Film Screening)

submitted by hermansb@augsburg.edu

Disturbing the Peace is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a story that no longer serves us and, with the power of our convictions, take action to create new possibilities. The film follows former enemy combatants — Israeli soldiers and Palestinian fighters — who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” When someone is willing to disturb the status quo and stand for the dream of a free and secure world, who will stand with them?

The Minneapolis screening will take place here at Augsburg Campus:
When: Wednesday, February 8th from 7:00-9:00 pm
Where: Sateren Auditorium, Augsburg College
2211 Riverside Avenue

The premiere will be followed by a discussion with members of Combatants for Peace and moderated by UMN Theater Professor Sonja Kuftinec.

1985 Hmong Film

submitted by xionga@augsburg.edu

Hmong Women Together (HWT) and Augsburg Student Activities Council (ASAC) will be hosting a Hmong film, 1985, by Kang Vang in Sateren Auditorium on Friday, January 20 at 6 p.m. This event is FREE and open to the public.

This coming-of-age story follows four friends in the summer of 1985, who venture out on a perilous journey to find a mythical dragon dwelling in a mysterious and forgotten lake somewhere in the great wilderness of… Minnesota. This totally rad adventure has them encounter some bad dudes, break dance battles, and run-ins with memorable characters along the way. A story about the shared journey of all Hmong-Americans, 1985 will remind you of the power of true friendship and the strength of love.

But… will our heroes find that dragon?
