Paschal Kyoore: Religious Diversity at a Lutheran College

Posted on June 11th, 2016 by

If I were not an African Catholic at a Lutheran college, then I would not be in such a good position to help my students discuss such examples, understand the complexity of cultures, and respect and appreciate how peoples of other cultures practice their religions.

Excerpted from Rooted in a Distinctive Tradition, Open to the World: Reflections Across Campus on the Heritage, Character, and Vision of Gustavus Adolphus College
Edited by Marcia J. Bunge, Rev. Drell and Adeline Bernhardson Distinguished Chair of Lutheran Studies

“The aim of this book is to address some of the common questions visitors or newcomers ask about the college’s identity and heritage: What makes Gustavus such a special and distinctive liberal arts college? What is the value of studying or working at a college founded by Swedish Lutherans? What does its Lutheran affiliation mean? How does its Lutheran heritage influence Gustavus today and into the future?”
