2019–20 Convocation Series

Share this:

Augsburg University’s annual convocation series provides dedicated time during the academic year to hear from outstanding leaders and visionaries.

In October, this year’s series kicked off with the Bernhard M. Christensen Symposium featuring Munib Younan, retired bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land and former president of the Lutheran World Federation, and Hamdy El-Sawaf, founder and psychotherapist at the Family Counseling Center and imam of Masjid Al-Iman in Minneapolis. Through their presentations, each shared personal experiences and religious perspectives on hope, reconciliation, and resiliency in the midst of suffering and struggles that often are intensified by religious convictions and differences.
