Upcoming Events

GRACEnotes

GRACEnotes, May 17

Christ is risen! Christ is risen, indeed. Alleluia!

And then there were two – pastoral candidates, that is! From eleven prospective candidates to succeed me as campus pastor at Luther House, two have been selected to come for facto-to-face visits, the first May 21-23 and the second June 4-6. Students will get to meet them at Tuesday lunches during their visits. Shortly after both candidates have visited the Call Committee expects to decide who will guide this ministry into the future. Please continue praying for the candidates, the Call Committee, and this time of discernment and transition.

The road trip for students to the Trappist Abbey near McMinnville is set for Saturday, May 27. We'll depart about 9:15 to meet up with Brother Mark, our abbey tour guide and host. We'll learn about monasticism, take a tour of the abbey, stay for Midday Prayer, then share lunch together at a nearby restaurant. 

Save the date for Lutherfest 2018 - Sunday, February 25. The location is the same as last year, the Boulder Falls Event Center in Lebanon. The planning team is already hard at work making plans for this sixth annual beer and cheese pairing to benefit Luther House. Watch for news of this great event as it develops.

Here's one of the prayers we used during our Luthergarten companion tree-planting ceremony last Sunday in the backyard garden at Luther House. May it inspire and encourge you this week...

God of imagination, we stand on holy ground. Help us learn the lessons that nature teaches so we can better live with each other and bless you always by the fruits of the Spirit that grow from our lives - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Amen. Alleluia!

Pr. Jim +

Lutheran Campus Ministry at Oregon State University

The name of the OSU-recognized student organization is called Lutheran Campus Ministry at OSU. It's one of many religious groups on campus that, together, form the Spiritual Life at OSU organization. LCM welcomes all students to participate in activities, programs, social events and service projects sponsored by the organization. It's governed by a Student Leadership Team. The SLT meets monthly, usually on Thursday evenings, to plan activities. LCM is part of the national Lutheran Student Movement organization LSM-USA.
