To avoid the spread of COVID-19, Concordia University, Saint Paul, decided to move its face-to-face classes online to close most on-campus services/activities for the rest of the 2019-2020 academic year. In light of these changes, Dr. Mark Schuler has started a virtual journey, the end of which is not clearly in sight—somewhat similar to the experience of Abram when God called him to leave his homeland and to go “to the land that I will show you” (Gen. 12:1). This blog follows the journey of a group of theology students who are studying along with Dr. Schuler. Join them on this journey here: https://www.footstepsofabram.markschuler.com
Dr. Mark Schuler of the Concordia University, St. Paul, Department of Theology & Ministry recently had an article published in the book Between Sea and Desert: On Kings, Nomads, Cities and Monks (Essays in Honor of Joseph Patrich). In his essay, titled “Oikoi to Monastery: An Interpretative Possibility for the Northeast Insulae at Antiochia Hippos”, Dr. Schuler reviewed findings from the excavations in the northeastern insula at Susita, suggesting this was a monastery within the city.
Tuesday, February 18, 2020, will be a busy day at Concordia and you are invited to the festivities! The 2020 Vern Gundermann Reformation Heritage Lecture, Martin Luther and Beauty, will take place at 7 pm in the Chapel, featuring Dr. Mark Mattes. Before Dr. Mattes’ lecture, he will engage in a conversation with Dr. Daniel Seidell on Theology, Art, and Beauty at noon in the Library Technology Center. Both events are free and open to the public. We hope you will join us!
