Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet’; and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law. – Romans 13:8-10
It was disappointing to discover soon after that very few people appreciated the other identities I should have been able to try. I refrained from labeling myself and ended up gray and depressed, with no real label but my own name.
I didn’t know who I was at the time. I didn’t like boys like I was supposed to. I didn’t dress like girls should – in fact, I had breakdowns and cried in dressing rooms trying on feminine clothes – I felt like they took off a layer of skin every time I pulled them on and off, leaving my flaws more naked and exposed than before.

The Christian faith is rooted in story. The stories of scripture communicate the grace of God enfleshed in time and place. When shared, this divine plot has the power to pull people into the narrative in transformative ways. This is the confession of the church that is storied by God.
Join the Augsburg College Campus Ministry Office on February 2, 2016, for the first Fosdick Lecture on Preaching with New York Times best-selling author and Minnesota native William Kent Krueger. A renowned story-teller with sixteen novels to his credit – including Ordinary Grace – Kent will speak on the power of story and its “importance to us and its unique ability to move people in mysterious and necessary ways.” His lecture will offer helpful and practical insights for his fans as well as people, like preachers, particularly engaged in the story-telling process. All are welcome.
The morning session will continue with a Response then conclude with Daily Chapel Worship at 11:30 am with the Reverend Rachel Wrenn preaching. Rachel is a 2011 graduate from Luther Seminary and recipient of the 2011 A. E. Hanson Prize in Preaching from the seminary. She is actively engaged in small town and rural ministry in Southwest Minnesota and a frequent contributor to the online preaching resource, Working Preacher.
This morning for the last daily chapel of the semester, Augsburg students, faculty, and staff all gathered to assemble hygiene kits for Health Commons. These kits will be sent to Central Lutheran Church to be distributed to people experiencing homelessness in the wider community. Together over 200 kits were assembled! It was a great way to share God’s love with our neighbors and mark the end of the fall semester. Thank you to all who came and helped out and to Health Commons! – Contributed by Jacie Richmond, Pastoral Intern, Luther Seminary
Augsburg College Campus Ministry welcomed Chillon Leach, Artist and Art Servant, to Daily Chapel on Tuesday, November 3. Chillon led a time of experiential expression of vocation and journey in Christ! We entered the chapel to find a long paper pathway stretching across the floor, extending out from the pulpit. During the opening hymn, Chillon kicked off her shoes and used markers and paints to begin sketching a river-like pathway down the middle of her canvas. Everyone who was gathered was then invited to join the journey by tracing around a foot or hand, or by adding meaningful words of their own spiritual journey to the work of art. Chillon finished by hand-applying gold paint to the pathway – highlighting the journey of the many footsteps and hand prints. Thank you to all who participated!
