Advent Event for Religion Majors - November 27th from 7-9 pm in the Chapel Commons there will be an event about Advent for Religion Majors, or others interested in learning more about the season of Advent. We will explore what the season of Advent (the weeks before Christmas) means for Christians. There will also be cookies and Hot Chocolate!
CWW Blessing during chapel will occur on Wednesday, November 28th at 10:15AM. All students, faculty and staff that are a part of Christmas With Wartburg are invited to attend chapel on this date to hear an inspiring message from Wartburg College alum, Rachel Henkle, to hear a preview of the CWW music from the choirs, and to receive a blessing from Rev. Dr. Brian Beckstrom before you depart for Des Moines later in the week. Don’t miss this event, ALL are welcome!

Chris Stedman speaks powerfully about how the Lutheran tradition intersected with his story personally as well as professionally (coming out as a teen, majoring in religion at Augsburg as part of discerning his humanist worldview). I wrote some about the Lutheran-ness of his story in a previous blog post here: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/carynriswold/2012/10/the-many-gifts-of-faitheist/ ... As you can tell, I am interested in this event as an example of how the Lutheran heritage and mission of Wartburg is and can be an expansive and inclusive thing. There will be a lovely reception in the Castle Room after his public talk in the Lyceum (free food!) and Chris will also be speaking in chapel on Friday, December 7.
Thank you to Dr. Karen Black and Hope Overflow for their assistance with worship this morning.
