May Auggie Eye-opener


Featured Speaker, ELCA Bishop Ann Svennungsen

“Faith Active in Love”
Featured Speaker, ELCA Bishop Ann Svennungsen

Bishop Ann Svennungsen was elected February 2012 as the first woman to lead the Minneapolis Area Synod. Bishop Svennungsen deeply values the ELCA commitment to social justice action and serves as the director of The Presidents’ Pledge Against Global Poverty. She has had a variety of experiences, including pastoring four very different congregations in vastly different circumstances, serving as CEO of the Fund for Theological Education in Atlanta, and serving as president of Texas Lutheran University in Seguin.

We look forward to learning more from Bishop Ann Svennungsen on May 8th, at our spring Auggie Eye-opener. If you have attended an Eye-Opener in the past, you know it is a great time of networking among Auggies and friends. If you haven’t come before, give it a try ($5 for the breakfast is worth it alone!)
