However that may be, let each of you lead the life that the Lord has assigned, to which God called you.
1 Corinthians 7:17
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 3:18a
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:1

Meet the new faculty at Luther Seminary.
The Luther Seminary community mourns the death of a "gentle, gracious and grace-filled" man. A mentor, pastor, teacher, colleague, and friend, Dr. Richard Wallace will be remembered for his "tough mind and tender heart."
Pastors Gary Lee, '66, and Ann Svennungsen, '81, have several things in common. They are exemplary preachers and worship leaders, their nominators say. They are mentors and role models. They care deeply about who will lead the church of the future. And they are the 2006 Honorees of Luther Seminary's Faithfulness in Ministry Cross Awards.
