A newsletter for friends of the Global Mission Institute, Luther Seminary
Global Vision - Fall 2011
During her undergraduate studies at Susquehanna University, Ruth Williamson, M.Div. '14, wrote a research paper about the Lakota culture. Little did she know that during her future studies at Luther Seminary, she would find a home among her Lakota brothers and sisters— not once, but twice.
Greetings to you from the Global Mission Institute and the Cross-Cultural Education Office! With this issue of Global Vision, we continue to bring you an array of stories from across the seminary.
With the church's missional realities constantly evolving, global church conversations and studies call for a shift in how congregations engage in mission. The Rev. Dr. James Wilson II, '11, sought a multicultural response to that shift by completing Luther's Doctor of Ministry in Congregational Mission and Leadership program.
