Why Race Matters, Part 2
Presenter: Pastor Vern Christopherson
After a robust, and all-too-short discussion on race at the end of January, Pastor Vern returns to continue the conversation that often divides us. How do we look more closely at our own race, and what factors play into our perceptions of others?

Listening Post with Building Visioning Team
We have been working with an architectural firm for the last several months to help us envision the space we may need to improve accessibility and be equipped for the ministry of the future. This forum will present a potential design and provide time for questions and feedback. This Forum will take place in the Sanctuary.

Eco-Reformation: Grace and Hope for a Planet in Peril
Presenter: Rev. Dr. James B. Martin-Schramm, Professor of Religion, Luther College
A growing number of Christians believe Reformation celebrations in 2017 and beyond need to focus now on the urgent need for an Eco-Reformation. Just as Martin Luther addressed the most important issues of his day, so too should those following in his footsteps address the most important issues affecting us today – climate change, loss of biodiversity, and other threats to the common good. Dr. Martin-Schramm will engage us in conversation about this topic drawing upon Lutheran insights from a book he recently co-edited that shares the same title as this forum.
