GRACEnotes

GRACEnotes, June 18

Congratulations to all our grads that celebrated the completion of their academic work at OSU yesterday with commencement exercises in Reser Stadium. We're so proud of each one and excited to see what's next for them. Some are beginning new jobs and others are off to graduate studies at other universities around the country. A few remain to continue research or work on graduate degrees at OSU. And, of course, we wish our undergrads well as they travel, study, or work this summer with every expectation we'll see them again in the Fall. God bless each and every one. God has a wild and wonderful journey in store for them. And we at Luther House are privileged to share that journey with them for a too-brief time. 

The summer schedule at Luther House will be unusual. But, if the sign on the door says, "Come On In," that means the door's unlocked, someone is prsent ready and willing to have a conversation or share a cup of coffee or tea. We look forward to you stopping by. 

The pastoral transition plans continue to unfold. The Call Committee recommended their preferred candidate to the Council on June 12. A team is working on a compensation package to propose. Once that's complete and the Oregon Synod approves, the synod will issue a call in confidence that we'll have a new campus pastor in place by Fall Term. In the meantime, I'm busy wrapping up my work and preparing to hand off this wonderful ministry to my successor. Please continue praying that all goes well and students will be well-served without skipping a beat.

Lutherfest 2018 is scheduled for Sunday, February 25, at the Boulder Falls Event Center in Lebanon. This will be the sixth annual beer and cheese pairing benefit to support our work on campus. Please save the date, plan to attend, invite your friends, and keep watch for all the new and exciting details as they're made known.

May the blessings of the summer season give you rest, renewal, and delight in all things. 

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.
