Who are the Student Peer Chaplains?

University is a key moment of transition in life. The person you were, the friends that you had, the values that you grew up with are all going to be looked at and experienced in a new way as you rapidly learn and change through education. Some things you will keep, some things you will reform, and other things you will leave in your past.

The peer chaplaincy team is one way for all students to explore questions and build community on campus. Working with our Resident Assistants (RA’s) in the dorms, the Luther University Students Association (LUSA), and other partners, we put together a diverse group of people whose varied interests converge in a love of activism within the Luther College community. Education is rarely a solitary activity and the context of learning and integration matters to the whole process of earning your degree. Our peer chaplains run projects and apply their passions, talents, and abilities to befriend, support, and encourage those around them.

At Luther you are never alone. Your questions are welcome. We explore mind, heart, and spirit issues (sometimes separately and sometimes together). We look to the depth of tradition but also engage what is right in front of us. We are not about finding simple answers; we are about exploring better questions. No question is too simple or complex, and there is no topic off limits. The goal of peer chaplaincy is to stretch boundaries and challenge all of us to take the best of our scholarship and apply it to our whole lives and to our whole person.

If you are feeling discouraged, stressed, or simply home-sick, please talk to a peer chaplain or with Pastor Sean.
