The Fall Convocation will be held on 3 consecutive Thursdays, September 10, 17 and 24 from 11:45-1:15, to allow engagement and respite from the daily hectic nature of the world and work.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
Together with members of the Outreach Team of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), United Lutheran Seminary offers an opportunity to engage in ways to build ministries of welcome. Recurring themes throughout scripture to love the neighbor and extend hospitality to alien,sojourner, and stranger issues a call to each and all believers. In the Entertaining Angels training, LIRS strives to accompany people of faith as they hear this call and discern what shape that will take in their lives, individually and as communities of faith.
The Fall Convocation will be held on 3 consecutive Thursdays to allow engagement and respite from the daily hectic nature of the world and work. Gather together at 11:45 and bring your lunch for this great opportunity to learn, hear, wonder, dream and be empowered. We look forward to being with you as we all work to entertain angels!
All sessions are free and you can take part in one, two or all three. Sessions will be recorded and placed in the ULS Lifelong Learning Video Library for future reference.
