Re: [Salt-l] Summer SALTer Adventures

Hello again SALTers!

I just wanted to put out another call for a photo and a blurb about what y'all are doing with your summers - cause I know you people are doing cool things and we want to share it!

So when you get a chance, shoot me an email with a picture and a couple sentences about what you are doing and I'll take it from there. (I'm looking at you, people who are interning at Kids Alive, I know you are out there.)

Let me know if you have any questions!

In Christ,
Nate

Greetings SALTers!

Summer is in full swing and I trust you all are having full and productive summers. We would love to share what our SALTers are doing this summer, serving in many different ways and locations. I'm hoping to have a new Summer SALTer Adventure to post on our social media every week for the rest of the summer, so I need your help.

So, here is your call to action - send a couple sentences about what you are doing this summer and a picture of you to nathan.king@valpo.edu and we'll share your summer adventure!

Questions - hit me up!

Be blessed,
Nate

Re: [Salt-l] [#344]: request to set up a list serv

Hey Matt
Thanks for checking back with me.
We intend this to be a method of communicating with SALT alumni, many of whom may not be using their valpo.edu address.
Is a google group a better choice than a list serv similar to our salt-l@lists.valpo.edu?

[Salt-l] Fwd: [Church-vocations-l] THEO 481 Basic Homily Preparation

FYI
Here's a chance to learn from a master.
Pr. Jim

Begin forwarded message:



Let me call to your attention an opportunity for Fall 2014. THEO 481-A Basic Homily Preparation. 

The class will meet Wednesdays only, 8:00-8:50AM, in the library at the Center for Diaconal Ministry on LaPorte Avenue. Professor John Nunes will lead the class. 

You will have an opportunity to share a homily with the community that gathers for worship at 7:00AM Wednesdays at the LDA. Though it is not limited to that venue. This class is also valuable to anyone who may, in their vocation, be called upon to communicate the gospel to others. You do not need to be a theology major or minor, or deacon/deaconess student. 

Questions? Contact me or Professor Nunes. 

MWB


Basic Homily Preparation
