Several new courses are now available at LHM Learn. Caring Conversations Across Cultures looks at how we understand and engage in authentic communication with others from different cultures. Reaching out in Rural America examines the particular character of life shared by those living in rural areas and how to share Jesus with them. Living with Dying is an insightful, Scripture-based look at death, dying, and how we carry on in the face of it. Nurturing Your Faith: Prayer explores the role of different types of prayer in the believer's life.

Caring Conversations Across Cultures, a Cultural Concepts course, is hosted by Dr. Amy Narishkin, a specialist who works with enhancing cultural intelligence and understanding others in a diverse world. In four sessions, learners address their hidden assumptions about others and gain knowledge and concepts to communicate through empathy and proactive listening. Throughout the course, true engagement is the goal, especially as we practice openness to others with compassion for their situation.

Reaching out in Rural America is another Cultural Concepts course. In four sessions learners will see how to build relationships with people in rural areas, sharing their faith with them as God opens doors. The course was authored by Dr. Kari Vo, theological writer for LHM. Contributions were made by Rev. Monte Meyer, a parish life facilitator for the Minnesota North District of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. One of this course's aims is for learners to be mindful of the quality of rural life so that Christ's love may be shared in a way that's appropriate in this cultural context.

Both Caring and Reaching were funded by the Siebert Lutheran Foundation, a private independent foundation based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which focuses on advancing the Lutheran faith. For more information about whom Siebert serves and what it funds, visit its website at

Both Caring and Reaching include a printable journal to jot down personal notes. A discussion guide with targeted questions and concept review helps reinforce the material. Additionally, there are tips for using this course as part of a small group study; a video transcript is available to review content and expand the discussion in a group setting.

Living with Dying is a five-day Spiritual Reflections course which utilizes the S.O.A.P. (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) Bible study format developed by Pastor Wayne Cordeiro. Audio and text Scripture passages speak to the topic and questions prompt thought on the text and what its message means to us as individuals. This course includes a journal with images that can be colored. It was created by Minneapolis-based artist Hannah Carlos.

Nurturing Your Faith: Prayer is a Christian Foundations course that explores the four types of prayer found in the Old Testament, Gospels, and the early church. Prayers of intercession, gratitude, confession, and praise are considered in various scriptural settings by highlighting a particular prayer's context, who offered it, and why.

LHM Learn offers courses in five different categories. Each course gives users biblically based knowledge to enhance their Christian walk by supplying teaching and insights to empower their faith now. The categories are Christian Foundations (basics of Christianity from biblical, theological, and historical perspectives); Cultural Concepts (understanding the different demographics, cultures, and religions in our world today); Everyday Insights (thoughts about the good and bad that life throws our way); Outreach Essentials (personal evangelism and tools to reach others with the Gospel); and Spiritual Reflections (devotional thoughts meant to strengthen and encourage).
