Each year LuMin in St. Cloud scouts out a person, lay or ordained, who is doing something that is both weird and faithful in ministry and brings them to St. Cloud to share their experiences with students, alumni, and supporters of campus ministry.
This year we’ve invited Pastor Lenny Duncan, ELCA mission developer and newly published author, to join us on September 27, 2019 at 7pm to share portions of his book called Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the US and engage us in conversation about how to form and maintain communities that have enough space to hold people’s many diversities. Find the event and more details on our Facebook page, LuMin in St. Cloud. If you can’t make it, but would still like to show your support for LuMin in St. Cloud, check out ways to give on the "Support Us" page here or like our Facebook page.
Questions from a Past Project
As I look forward to incoming applications for new student ministry projects, I wanted to share with you some of the work that a student completed for his project last spring semester. He applied to take some of his friends on a retreat to discuss how technology is changing the practice of religion. Though we hit some metaphorical bumps in the road, we made it up to Luther Crest Bible Camp in April for relaxation, good food, and great conversation. I think the student even surprised himself with how well the weekend went! Here are some of the questions that he crafted for our time together. I hope they spark some good conversation for you as they did for us.
Can the religious systems of the past work in the tech world of the future?
Do you think the advancements in social networking technology are helping people connect more or less?
In what ways do you think future technological advancements will change the way people learn religious ideals?
