Community Announcements:

Augsburg University welcomes you for the final two Tuesdays of our “Music in the Reformation” series from 11:30-11:50 a.m. in Hoversten Chapel.  Next Tuesday the 24th we celebrate “Luther Jazz”, and for Reformation Day 500 on the 31st, both the Band and Choir will participate in a service of “Prayers for Peace and Protection.”

The National Lutheran Choir will be performing the world premiere of "Holy Spirit Mass"  on Friday, October 27 at the Basilica of Saint Mary, Minneapolis. This historic event is a part of the Reformation Festival taking place from October 27 to October 28, 2017.

"Holy Spirit Mass" was composed by Norwegian Kim André Arnesen, a young rising star in the world of choral music. The National Luther Choir's artistic director David Cherwien says, "Music is so central to the experience of what it means to be Lutheran, there is no better way to express our hope for ongoing Reformation than to sing. We are pleased and proud to be undertaking this project."   To register visit www.nlca.com or call 612-722-2301 


Mindekirken’s Mission Statement:

Mindekirken is called to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people,
empowering service to others.

Mindekirken practices its ministry through 
Norwegian traditions, culture and language.

Call to Prayer
Your Call Committee has carefully crafted informative ads to be published in the four Friday issues of Vårt Land in June, in both electronic and print editions.  The ads describe Mindekirken, our Minnesota setting, our challenges and needs based on the self-study in which many of you have expressed yourselves. This is a Call to Prayer at this crucial time when pastors in Norway will be reading about our search for our flock’s next shepherd.  We have done what we can; now we commend this to the hands of God.
Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak to a person of God’s own choosing, pique their interest and move them also to prayer.  Please pray daily, remembering that it is God who calls us to pray, and gives abundant promises to hear with love, with wisdom and with power.  Thank you.
