Sunday Forums are an education and faith formation opportunity on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:20am in Heritage Hall, which is in the lower lever under the worship space.
We at University Lutheran Church of Hope are thoughtful believers dedicated to faith formation and mindful inquiry, expanding our understanding of how God is at work in our lives. Come and explore your questions in a caring community.
Sunday Forum schedule for November 2018
November 4: Stories of Hope. This ever-popular program will provide you an opportunity to hear faith stories from Linda Herman and Eric Ringham. Linda is a retired faculty member from Concordia College in Moorhead and has an ongoing connection with Japan. Eric is a journalist currently employed by Minnesota Public Radio. Both provide leadership within the congregation. Each will share their faith journey with us.
November 11: Tent of Nations. Located in the Palestinian West Bank, not far from Bethlehem, is the ancestral homestead of the Nassar family. Daoud Nassar, a member of the Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, has spent years and untold thousands of dollars to keep this farm alive and productive. Ever since the Israeli occupation of the West Bank in 1967, this has been a life-or-death struggle. Nassar’s land is now surrounded by Israel-sponsored settlements, all wanting to confiscate his property. Despite the cutting-off of electricity and water and the blocking of all the roads, in March eight Hope members visited the site, now a “retreat” center. Ann Beane and John Setterlund will present this compelling story.
