||Registration & Continental Breakfast
|The Bush Steering Committee has been in conversation about issues of
identity and diversity. We want to explore the balance between claiming
our Lutheran heritage and recognizing religious diversity.
We want to explore what it means to be a Lutheran college of the Church,
not as opposed to "non-church", but as related to the increasing
conservative, black-and-white religious backdrop. We are particularly interested
in talking about academics and the faith of the community.
How do we deal, for example, with faith becoming an impediment to
asking questions, contributing to closed-mindedness?
You may add your own questions. We envision the seminar as a rich dialogue
on these issues as they apply to the dynamics of the campus-at-large, the
community of faculty, and the interrelationship between faculty and students.
