Are you interested in learning more about Muslim Identities in Minnesota?
Join us at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 in the Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center, Augsburg College
In the 21st century there is a plethora of clichés, stereotypes, and over-generalizations about Muslims in Minnesota, where there are also a variety of different ways of being Muslim. Join Professor Cawo Abdi and Ph.D. candidate Nahid Khan to explore the diversity of Muslims in Minnesota today and the many contexts shaping their lives and identities. Professor Abdi will draw on her recently published book on the Somali diaspora, Elusive Jannah, and Khan will present data from her research on the portrayal of Islam and Muslims in Twin Cities media over the last several decades.
The event is free and open to the public.
Sponsored by the Bernhard Christensen Center for Vocation at Augsburg College in collaboration with the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning at the University of St. Thomas.For more information, please see http://www.augsburg.edu/ccv/2016/08/26/muslim-identities-in-minnesota/
Bryn Mawr Backpacks.
Last year, we started a partnership with the Sheridan Story program at Bryn Mawr Elementary School, packing backpacks with food on Fridays for children to take home for the weekend. This program has grown in the last year to serve 112 families. It has been an extremely beneficial partnership that takes place every Friday. They are in need of more volunteers this school year. If you would like to participate or learn more, please contact Pastor Kelly or the church office (612)374-4139.
