Few are Elected or Chosen
Doris Kearns Goodwin, in her best seller, Team or Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln (2005) records that Lincoln, upon learning in a dispatch that he had been elected President in 1860, headed home to tell the news to his wife, Mary. His words were simple: “Mary, Mary, we are elected!” (p. 278).

Matthew the tax collector and author of the New Testament Gospel with the same name, records a few words of Jesus Christ that are seemingly as simple but carry a much more important message for each of us: “For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14 ESV).

How wonderful it is for us to know that our Heavenly Father has chosen us to be His children, to believe in Him, and to be forgiven. Many will refuse the invitation and reject the Gospel – maybe they want to play by their own rules and be judged on their good works. They do not believe. But our Lord has called us to Himself. Thanks be to God that we have been baptized, forgiven, and given new life in Christ. We are truly elected.

God’s blessings to each of you.

Lonn Maly, Vice President for Academic Affairs

Articles for publication in the Faculty Bulletin may be submitted via email to haeg@csp.edu at least three working days prior to publication. The next issue will be sent on March 2, 2010. The submission deadline for articles for the next issue is February 25, 2010.

Theme for the 2009-2010 Academic Year is:

The Light Shines in the Darkness”

Based on John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”  John 1:5 ESV
Here are a couple of texts that are also appropriate to accompany the TOTY

  1. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. John 3:19 ESV 

  2. Jesus said, "For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind."  John 9:39 ESV

Please feel free to use this theme in your course outlines and syllabi and seek other appropriate opportunities to share the theme with our campus community, in your congregation and with other publics that are served by Concordia University.

Blessed are You!

Joel Schuessler officially added Ph.D. to his name by successfully completing the defense of his dissertation at Capella University for a Ph.D. in Education with a specialization in Instructional Design for Online Learning.  His dissertation research explored the design and practice of self-assessment activities with the intent using self assessment to focus more on learning and less on grades.  The literature indicates that self assessment is rarely practiced in higher education and his study looked for the motivations, barriers, and design implications for adopting self assessment into practice. “A special thanks to the faculty, staff and students who participated in this study,” Schuessler said.  “I also owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Michael Walcheski for his incredible help, particularly on qualitative research.”  The dissertation, titled “Self Assessment As Learning:  Finding the Motivations and Barriers for adopting the Learning-Oriented Instructional Design of Student Self Assessment,” should soon be available in the ProQuest dissertation database.  Congratulations Joel!

March 23, 7:30 p.m., Concordia University, St. Paul
Buenger Education Center

We are pleased to announce that this year’s speaker for the Ninth Annual Poehler Lecture on Faith and Learning is Dr. Loma Meyer, Professor Emeritus of Education, past Vice President for Academic Affairs, and past chairperson of the CSP Board of Regents.  The lecture is an annual event designed to explore how faculty members connect their Christian faith with both their academic discipline and (especially in Dr. Meyer’s case) their experiences in leadership roles in higher education.  Speakers are selected on the basis of their excellence in their academic discipline and their maturity in the Christian faith.

Unlocking the Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls

Concordia will present a series of four public lectures on the Dead Sea Scrolls in conjunction with an exhibition coming to the Science Museum of Minnesota in March 2010.  The Dead Sea Scrolls, which scholars believe were written between approximately 200 BC and 200 AD, lay hidden and forgotten for centuries until they were discovered in the 1950s in caves along the northwest shore of the Dead Sea. Altogether, archeologists have uncovered more than 600 scrolls and thousands of fragments in 11 caves around the ruins of an old Roman fortress known as Khirbet Qumran. The scrolls have been called the greatest manuscript discovery of modern times. They contain some of the oldest known fragments of the Christian Old Testament or Hebrew Bible. Most texts are written in Hebrew or Aramaic, which has enhanced scholarly understanding of these languages and offered a cultural context for the times in which they were written. These ancient scrolls are now under the conservation of the Israel Antiquities Authority and are seldom seen on display. The lecture series will enrich understanding of the texts and for the exhibition coming to the Science Museum of Minnesota, which will offer a rare opportunity for a first-hand look at these artifacts and a deepened appreciation for their significance in Christian thought and traditions.

• Thursday, Feb. 11 – The Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls: You've Got to Know the Territory
• Thursday, Feb. 25 – But Wait...There's More:  Who Wrote the Scrolls and What Else Did they

• Thursday, March 18 – The Archaeology of Khirbet Qumran

• Thursday, April 15 – Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls

All lectures will be held at 7:30 p.m., in Graebner Memorial Chapel.  Read complete lecture descriptions and speaker bios

Mission Central for February – from Rev. Dr. Richard Carter

For a different view of the value of mission for an institution, please look out the front windshield with me after my wife and I stopped our car in central Slovakia last summer. The GPS has the checkered flag up: we have arrived! We were looking for the hotel in the middle of Tisovec, a small city in the center of the country. Our GPS took us through town on the main street, guided us to a right turn by the small lake/large pond at the south end of town, and directed us to pull up in front of a dilapidated garage. I took a picture of it, the GPS screen up close with its good news while out in front we saw the old garage and a couple scrawny trees.

In fairness, as perhaps is true also for your Global Positioning System equipment, for most of the summer the GPS served us very well. Getting through downtown Budapest I almost looked more at the GPS than the road. It got us into this weird right hand lane thing that was exactly what we needed to make a left turn to our youth hostel on a little street.

I wonder about a GPS at sea. You can see nothing---imagine a storm tossing you under its dark gray clouds--- but your GPS gives you a clear sense of where you are going, of where to aim your craft. A mission statement that is used can do the same. If the GPS or the mission statement is left in a drawer out of sight you might get somewhere, but where? You might survive the storm (weather at sea, financial or educational on land) but if you have a particular goal in heart and mind, “somewhere” is not good enough.

Preparing students “for thoughtful and informed living, for dedicated service to God and humanity, and for enlightened care of God’s creation, all within the context of the Christian Gospel”---what choices do you or would you make to navigate by that tool? What hotel or harbor might we reach if we practice this mission together?

Adrift on the Mississippi

You are cordially invited to attend our first informative meeting about the play, Adrift on the Mississippi, on Friday, February 5 at 1:00 pm in the Westlund Theatre. This is an open meeting. Everyone who may be interested is welcome to attend.

This is a compelling and inspiring story about freed slaves, the Hickman group’s escape, the support they received, and the eventual establishment of the Pilgrim Baptist Church, here in Saint Paul. The collaborating artistic staff, James Williams (director), Brian Grandison (author), and Ron Peluso (artistic director of the History Theatre) will discuss the story and how the writing of this play came about. Of special importance is that the Pilgrim Baptist Church will soon be celebrating its 150th anniversary. Reverend Gill (of Pilgrim Baptist) may also be there.

The Concordia Theatre Department will be performing this play in full partnership with The History Theatre during Black History month in February, 2011. The History Theatre is a professional equity theatre with a 32-year tradition of telling about the people and events that have made Minnesota history. This event will also be sponsored by the Minnesota Timberwolves (the National Basketball Association). Additional grants have been sought from the National Endowment for The Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The History Theatre is also working with Twin Cities Public television on a possible series of documentaries which will record this event and chronicle this fascinating account of African American History in Minnesota.

If you would like to learn more about this meeting, feel free to contact Jim Seemann or Kay Robinson, co-chairs of the Theatre Department.

2009-2010 CSP Book of the Year: Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

From the front flap:  Acclaimed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin illuminates Lincoln’s political genius as the one-term congressman and prairie lawyer rises from obscurity to prevail over three gifted rivals of national reputation to become president. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry.  That Lincoln succeeded, Goodwin demonstrates, was the result of a character that had been forged by experiences that raised him above his more privileged and accomplished rivals. Team of Rivals tells the biography of these four men and their ability work together through one of the darkest eras of America’s history.
