Bega Kwa Bega Fall Festival
The Bega Kwa Bega Fall Festival took place November 8th at Augustana in West Saint Paul. Thank you to the over 200 people from more than 60 congregations who attended the event! Together we brainstormed new ways to partner with our companion congregations, celebrated 20 years of the University of Iringa, and raised more than $2,000 for Lutheran Disaster Response.

Bishop Eaton's November Column: "Spruce up our spiritual house"
Bishop Eaton's November column for The Lutheran is here!
"'I’m spiritual, not religious.' How many times have we heard that, usually from people who consider their unchurched status a mark of honor. When I heard this as a parish pastor, I became frustrated, especially when folks waxed lyrical about a spiritual experience engendered from contemplating the beauty of a mountaintop. This was perplexing because I served in Ohio. There are no mountains. I was tempted to dismiss it as laziness. But now I think they are on to something."
2014 Bishop's Theological Conference: Ponder anew
The 2014 Bishop's Theological Conference was held October 26-28, 2014 at the Heartwood Conference Center in Trego, Wis. To ponder means to examine an issue or an idea from a variety of perspectives. During her first year as bishop, Bishop Lull invites rostered leaders in the synod to join in a time of discovery by looking at our faith practices and the world in which we live from every possible angle and perspective.
