Are you interested in urban, multicultural, and faith-based social justice immersion? For the Spring 2015 semester, we are excited to reveal our next two Pray and Break Bread trips: Twin Cities LGBTQIA Advocacy Day and Twin Cities Housing Justice Day!
Last semester, Pray and Break Bread took Luther students, faculty, and staff on two exciting urban immersion trips. Our first trip was to explore Minneapolis' local Muslim, Jewish, and Christian faith communities by visiting Masjid An-Nur, Sabes Jewish Community Center, and Redeemer Lutheran Church. Our second trip was to learn about Twin Cities spiritual and secular diversity by visiting the Hindu Temple of Minnesota, The Humanist Institute/First Unitarian Society, Hmongtown Marketplace, and Minnesota Zen Meditation Center. We are excited to learn from our neighbors again!
Pray and Break Bread's third trip is Twin Cities LGBTQIA Advocacy, scheduled on Saturday March 28 from 9 am - 6:30 pm.
On this trip, we will spend time learning from the rich history and practice of LGBTQIA activism and advocacy in the Twin Cities. Our mentors will be: staff of the ELCA LGBTQIA advocacy organization ReconcilingWorks, members of the pioneering inclusive congregation All God's Children Metropolitan Community Church, and veteran community organizers and lobbyists at OutFront MN.
Pray and Break Bread is open to students, staff, and faculty. Attendance is $10.00. Registration is capped at 15 and closes on March 23. Please register for our LGBTQIA Advocacy Day by clicking here.
Pray and Break Bread's fourth trip is Twin Cities Housing Justice, scheduled on Friday April 17 from 11:30 am - 7 pm.
On this trip, we will spend time learning from local people working together to challenge the root causes of homelessness and hunger in our community. Our destinations will be: Lutheran Social Services' housing and food justice work in South Minneapolis, Beacon Interfaith Housing's apartments for youth experiencing homelessness, and the creative food truck ministry at Shobi's Table in St. Paul.
Pray and Break Bread is open to students, staff, and faculty. Attendance is $10.00. Registration is capped at 15 and closes on April 13. Please register for our Housing Justice Day by clicking here.
