New Testament Religion [25 Jul 2006|01:18pm]

Heeeey everyboodddy

so, I'm teaching NT to 7th graders. They're asking me what book I want to use - I'm going like this


So, has anyone tried the Voyages book from CPH? The NT section is their 8th grade religion book. Or has anyone tried anything else that they could recommend? It doesn't have to necessarily be form CPH, or even by Lutheran. I'm looking for something engaging, and I've got a lot of city kids. I remember my religion classes with horror, and don't want to repeat that memory with these kids.

Question for you all [04 May 2006|01:47pm]

[ mood | tired ]

I read this in a friends LiveJournal. She's Presbyterian and her boyfriend is Church of God. She was confused as to why he would write "Protestant" under religious affiliation on something.

Anyway, her question is this:

Do you think a Protestant is simply someone who is not a Catholic or do you think a Protestant is someone who not only is that, but is also Reformed?

wish someone had told us how important we are [13 Apr 2006|11:09am]

"The final prospect for a vigorous renewal of Protestant life and witness rests with the Lutheran Churches....The Lutheran Churches are in the fortunate position of having been, in varying degrees, insulated from American life for a long period of time. As a result, they have been less subject to theological erosion, which so largely stripped other denominations of an awareness of their continuity with a historic Christian tradition. Thus the resources of the Christian past have been more readily available to them, and this fact suggests that they may have an increasingly important role to play in the Protestant recovery. Amoung the assets immediately at hand among the Lutherans are a confessional tradition, a surviving liturgical structure, and a sense of community which, however much it may be of cultural factors, may make it easier for them than most Protestant denominations to recover the integrity of church membership without which Protestants are illequipped to participate effectively in the dialogue of pluralistic society."

Winthrop Hudson - Religion in America (1965)

i wonder if we've taken full advantage of this "opportunity"
or have we blown it completely
ARE blowing it by trying to be more like "the other kids"

I just want to make sure you all are informed...

Subject: Campus Memorial Service for Dr. Williams

Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." (Revelation 14:13 NIV)

Fellow Concordians,

As you have heard, God has called Dr. Donald Williams to his heavenly home. Dr. Williams served CUAA as Campus Organist and instructor for many years until he became ill last spring.  His service to the Church and University is one marked by faithfulness,  humility and grace. He was highly esteemed, deeply loved, and we will miss him even as we long for a heavenly reunion.

It is appropriate for us to gather as a community to give thanks to God for our brother and friend and to seek God's Word for consolation.

We will have a memorial service for Dr. Williams during our regular Chapel service on Monday, September 26.  Because of Dr. Williams' love for the organ, we will depart from our typical Monday style (blended).  Thomas Czinder, who is responsible for music on Mondays will select music and play organ for this service.

Blessings in your service to the Preeminent Christ!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth
into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4and into an inheritance
that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you ... " (1 Peter 1:3-4 NIV)


Rev. David L. Adler
Campus Chaplain
Director of Pre-Seminary Program
Assistant to the President for Church Relations
Advisor: Spiritual Life Committee & Student Ministry Outreach Programs

Concordia community,

I have just received information about visitation and funeral arrangements for our friend and colleague Don Williams.

Visitation will be at Chelsea First United Methodist Church, 128 Park Street, Chelsea, MI on Sunday, September 25th from 4-7pm.

The funeral will be held at First Presbyterian Church, 1432 Washtenaw Ave, Ann Arbor, MI on Monday, September 26th at 1:30pm.

CUAA response to Hurrican Katrina [08 Sep 2005|03:23pm]

Hey Y'all. I thought that you might want to know this and that you folks deserved to know what CUAA is doing, since y'all are vital members of the CUAA community:


Concordia University-Ann Arbor announced today that they will be offering immediate guest admission and fall tuition waivers for students affected by Hurricane Katrina.

“Concordia daily chapel services have included prayers for the victims of Hurricane Katrina,” said the Rev. Dr. Thomas Ahlersmeyer, president of Concordia University. “Student-initiated assistance is underway. Opening our campus to displaced students is yet another way that Concordia University-Ann Arbor can reach out with the compassion and hope of Jesus Christ.”

Students who have already paid or have been given financial aid assistants to attend their home university are eligible. Room and board charges will still apply but financial aid assistance will be available on a need-based, case-by-case basis. Prospective students will be given priority service and should respond as soon as possible. Please plan on attending classes no later than Wednesday, September 14.

Incoming freshman who are interested should contact Jaclyn Eilers at 1.800.253.0608 or by e-mail at eilerj@cuaa.edu. Returning students should contact Jennifer Freudenburg at the above number or by email at freudj@cuaa.edu.

With a distinctly Christian environment and an academic community dedicated to excellence, CUAA offers a broad range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs through its four schools – School of Arts and Sciences, School of Education, Haab School of Business and Management, and School of Adult and Continuing Education.

[ mood | chipper ]

I figured since no one has written anything in here in awhile, I'd leave a lil summer lovin'. If any of you are like me, you come online for awhile, check your e-mail, livejournal and myspace accounts and you're most likely a little bored. Well do I have something to liven things up! You just need a little music in your life while you do your thing online.

There's this great band called "The Weakend" and they have some of their songs on this great website called purevolume.com. Just click on --> http://www.purevolume.com/theweakend
or you can find out a little about them on myspace at--> http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewProfile&friendID=476537&Mytoken=20050709112233

I hope everyone is having a great summer,
enjoy the music kids!

iPod headphones lost [13 Apr 2005|10:43am]

If you have found some iPod headphones (white earbuds) in the library, or know someone who has - could you please direct them to this post?

Notice someone that recently acquired them? I'm sure this is nearly hopeless, but I'd rather try before I have to purchase a new one.

my three things [20 Mar 2005|10:51pm]

[ mood | thoughtful ]

way to go mike. way to make us think. or not.

three things they don't tell you before you graduate, after you graduate, or during graduation:
1. you miss your old friends terribly.
2. you begin to seriously entertain thoughts of forming a commune with said friends and never coming out of it.
3. concordia spoils you for the real world. you become dependent on cable, covet high-speed internet access, you don't have it services or custodial at your beck and call (you're lucky if the repairman shows up within the first week), not everyone wants to hear about the complications of the lutheran church, the bubble gets popped (even if you're one of those who believes that this year's freshmen popped it- they didn't), and good luck finding a "good lutheran partner" in the real world (you learn to compromise).

we who are about to die salute you. =)

ok, I'll play along [20 Mar 2005|10:27pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

my three things

three things they didn't tell me when I went to college:

a) the classes that are hard are hard because they make you question your hard beliefs...and drive you emotionally insane
b) the ratio of girls to guys is more like 4:1 than 1:2
c) every study habit you've had since you were born can fly out the window in a second when the computer is consantly there...connected...and all yours

3 things [20 Mar 2005|10:03pm]

Since no one ever really writes in here anymore, I thought I'd try to bring back some life.

So, I'm starting a "3 things" thread. Post 3 things that... or 3 things to do when... or whatever. Just so long as there are three.

Mine? 3 things that every freshman should know.
1) the nest number is x7413. It'll come in handy often.
2) they keep the keys to the mailroom in a cabinet behind the front desk.
3) Sundays at 9:00 pm every R.A. and both the R.D.'s are in a meeting for about an hour. Think about it.

mkay, post your own!

Good evenin' peeps [17 Feb 2005|07:27pm]

Couple of quick questions...

First off, anyone have a copy of the Intro to Business book with Luker? No? Good shit.

Secondly, when is everyone graduating? Just curious. I have to decide whether or not I'm going to miss Concordia.

Thirdly, I know I'm not VOX editor anymore, but it looks like Nicole Burgess, Chris Williams, Doria Heap, et. al. are putting together a pretty nifty new version of the VOX. You lads and lasses should consider contributing stories, photographs, etc., and put the "wire" out for any interested advertisers. They could use all the help/money they can get. OK, done rallying the troops.

Fourthly, how the hell is everyone? Been a while since I posted to cuaa board.

Love ya.

[24 Jan 2005|08:23am]

For my group presentation for speech, we are talking about parent-child communication with college-aged children (that would be most of you) So if you want to use the comment feature here, you can tell me any opinions you have about your parents' interference in your struggle to find independence, your dating relationships, rules of the house (our project assumes that you live at home and deal with your parents' authority often), and curfew issues. My part of the project is presenting our point of view, the young adult. So I get to spend four to five minutes voicing all of your complaints about your overbearing parents. The more material I have the better, so feel free to tell me whatever you want. If you have to post anonymously, please include your name and age. We are specifically looking for people in the 18-25 range who live at home but struggle because they are adults and their parents don't treat them with the respect or whatever else they feel they deserve. The more I have to say, the easier my presentation will be. So please, please, please say whatever bothers you about your parents! This is when it's totally ok!!
