Chaplaincy - Here for the whole house.

A place of connection, conversation, and action for people of all faiths and no faith.

A Rabbi and chaplain once said that “the chaplain is the chaplain to the whole house. The chaplain is confident in his or her own spirituality and doesn’t need to bring everyone to the same place. It is the role of chaplaincy to make sure that everyone gets to where they are going.” This means that the chaplain is available to anyone, regardless of the degree to which they choose to be involved in campus life, or the path they are on.

What does the Chaplaincy do?

The Chaplain's role is broadly defined and assists in areas of student and staff support, community organizing, themes of justice, Christian Worship, and Multifaith dialog.

Luther College is Rooted and Open!
The chaplaincy exists as part of the Luther College identity. This means that “Because they are rooted in a robust theological tradition, these institutions intentionally pursue conversation about big questions from the full array of religious and secular academic traditions. In so doing, they shape character, invite vocational discernment and build religious literacy. These institutions pose big questions, like 'Who are you going to be?' alongside the question 'What are you going to do?' Wrestling with these questions, students gain fluency in the language of meaning and purpose.” http://www.augie.edu/sites/default/files/u7/Rooted-and-Open.pdf

Luther College is more than a collection of classes!
University is not just a collection of classes. The thoughts and ideas that you encounter in class. The learning and formation that you undergo is done within a community of scholars who take on the task of thinking deeply about the world as we know it, and how it could be changed. The Regina Beach Manifesto states “This implies a de-emphasis of mere topicality in the subject matter of the liberal arts curriculum. It demands a deliberate renewal of the study of the nature of love, of justice, freedom, science, economic good, the arts: in fact, all those values which give meaning and substance to life.

The Chaplaincy is here to help you tear down your old assumptions, listen deeply to the pain of growing up, taking on new ideas, and leaving behind old ways of believing. You cannot expect to come through this process unchanged… and if you are unchanged, it’s possible you weren’t paying attention! Now is the time to ask the hard questions, to wrestle with controversial beliefs, and to passionately explore possibilities for what your life will become, and how you will change the world around you.

Who is the Chaplaincy for?

The Chaplaincy is for all people. We hold Worship services for Christians but also hold space for people of all faiths and no faith. Our many projects are aimed at deepening questions, Multi-Faith dialogue, justice, community building, student support, and fun stress relief.

We are part of the Positive Space Network and when we say all are welcome we really mean it. At Luther, there is a place for all.
