2018 Fall Centered Life Series

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 from 12:00 P.M.-1:15 P.M.

Calling in the Third Age: “Breaking and Re-Making” Dr. Marty Stortz Calling in the latter stages of the life cycle all too often takes place amidst a litany of losses: loss of loved ones, loss of job or career, loss of income, loss of bodily function. But the vocational questions have not changed; they’re just inflected differently. Drawing on the wisdom of scripture and real-life illustrations, this talk explores those questions: Who am I? Who are my people? What will I do with my “one wild and precious life?” (Mary Oliver)

These sessions will be held at Luther Seminary in the Olson Campus Center, Dining Room C

The cost of each session is $15 per participant

Living on the Brink: “The Courage to Be Fully Alive in the Third Chapter of life” Rev. Dr. Jack Fortin We will be discovering together how to live in the tension between “Gravity and Grace”.

2018 Fall Centered Life Series

Wednesday, October 24, 2018 from 12:00 P.M.-1:15 P.M.

Vocation 2.0 Dr. Paul Pribbenow Come and explore how our Lutheran colleges and universities have made the theological concept of vocation – one of the central gifts of our Lutheran Christian tradition – the center of their academic missions. We will discuss how our Lutheran understanding of vocation offers a powerful counter-message to the cultural expectation that we are always called to upwardly mobile, individual trajectories in our lives. Of relevance to those of us in the “third age,” our discussion will focus both on how Vocation 2.0 is important to our vocational journeys and how we can help support future generations of faithful folks called to service in the world.

 These sessions will be held at Luther Seminary in the Olson Campus Center, Dining Room C 

The cost of each session is $15 per participant
