2014 Parkland Staycation Join us for the second annual Parkland Staycation Alternative Spring Break! This experience is designed to introduce students to the Parkland community. During this service-oriented 6-day alternative Spring Break focused on food issues in the community, students will venture into Parkland without having to go away for the break. Students will stay on campus for the break; however during the day we will meet community members at community meals, schools, farms, and food banks. This year, we have a day reserved for just exploring Parkland and what it has to offer, which promises to be an adventure.

Some adventures to look forward to:  Preparing and participating in community dinners  Working with students at James Sales Elementary  Gardening at the Trinity Lutheran Community Garden and L’arche Tahoma Hope  Contributing to the EFN and Parkland First Baptist Church Food Bank  Bowling, scavenger hunts, and more!

Sign up online at www.plu.edu/service by March 7th!

Please contact Tommy Flanagan at flanagte@plu.edu with questions you have about this opportunity.

Join us for the screening of:

For the Bible Tells Me So February 25, 2014 6:00pm – Xavier 201 JOIN US for a screening and discussion of For the Bible Tells Me So. This film introduces you to five ordinary Christian families and shows how they handle the realization of having a gay child or family member. Intermingled with these five stories, religious leaders and scholars explore how the Bible has been used and misused in response to homosexuality, as well as describe the impact that biblical misinterpretation has had on individuals and families. The film’s intent is to offer healing, clarity, and understanding to anyone affected by this issue – in other words, everyone.

A panel discussion will begin at 7:45pm following the film. Dr. Torvend, Dr. Trelstad, and Dr. Dowland from the Religion Department will be leading a discussion. You are welcome to come and ask questions!
