A Note of Thanks
Please be assured that my visit was a very enjoyable experience. From Sunday night until lunch on Friday I was treated with extraordinary hospitality and kindness. Throughout the week I was afforded opportunities to interact with students, faculty, and staff in ways that gave me thorough immersion into life in the seminary community. What a wonderful place for our future leaders to be prepared for ministry. I will always be grateful that I saw life in the ELCA from the perspective of LTSG. It provided a solid boost of encouragement. Thank you for all you did to make my visit such a pleasant experience. Sincerely, Sam Zeiser, 2014 Bishop-in-Residence

There will be a bin located in the coffee shop where you can place your food items or you can send your $5 to Lauren Muratore. Please sign the sheet with your name and e-mail or attach it with your money so the link to the bracket can be sent to you. The final day to buy in is March 14th, since brackets need to be filled out March 16th with the tournament starting March 18th! Please contact Nicole Welke nwelke@Ltsg.edu if you have any questions.
Holden Evening Prayer for Lent
On Wednesday nights throughout Lent, Holden Evening Prayer will be held at 10pm in the prayer chapel (to the right of the main chancel in the chapel.) Holden Evening Prayer has a slightly different pace than Compline and could be a great spiritual discipline for Lent for those looking to enhance their prayer life. Please come and join us beginning Wednesday, March 12. Contact Nicole Welke for more information: nwelke@Ltsg.edu
