Heritage Day with Mary Lowe

Martin Luther on the Body, Our Bodies, and the Body of Creation

Tuesday, October 24, 2017
7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Hoversten Chapel, 625 22nd Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55454

As part of the Reformation series, Mary Lowe, associate professor of Religion at Augsburg University, will give an evening lecture followed by discussion and a reception.

Martin Luther wrote, “There are three elements in a human, the body, the soul, and the spirit.” Many of today’s complex issues involve our bodies and the body of creation: climate change, gender and sexuality, abuse, and deforestation, etc. In Augsburg’s 2017 Heritage Lecture, Prof. Lowe will introduce Luther’s perspectives on bodies and creation and examine how—even today—his theology can help us better understand and address these embodied challenges.

This event is free and open to the public.

Please email ccv@augsburg.edu if:
– you would like a printable parking permit for the evening.
– you would like to be notified when an audio recording of the presentation is available.
