GRACEnotes, September 21

Welcome to Fall Term! A great adventure is beginning for you. We at Luther House are cheering you on.

Yesterday, about 20 new students came for lunch and to check out Luther House at our first-ever Welcome Week preview event. Thanks to the Student Leadership Team for organizing, cooking, welcoming, talking, and touring folks around Luther House!

We’re tabling this afternoon in the MU Quad at the OSU Community Fair to showcase our ministry outreach. Stop by the table to visit and get some free stuff. Saturday and Sunday the Student Leadership Team is headed for Camp Lutherwood for team-building, star-gazing, program-planning and more. There's room for you if you want to join us. We depart Saturday from Luther House at noon and return by 1:00 on Sunday. Bring weather-approrpaite clothing and good footwear along with sleeping bag, pillow and personal items. Add on a snack to share and you’re set. It’s FREE, but I need to know by Thursday morning if you want to join us. Call 541-753-5213 and leave a message or email info@luther-house.org.

Sunday TableTalk Supper and Discussion. Every Sunday at 5:30 we gather for a home-cooked meal then transition into a topic of interest, focused discussion or Bible study, guest presentation or service activity. We’re done by 7 so you can get on with homework, socializing, or preparing for the coming week. Join us whenever you can.

Monday Morning Prayer. Get your week started right every Monday with a short 15-minute prayer service in the Luther House Upper Room. Informal. Simple. Spiritual.

Tuesday “Come and Go” Lunch. Free to all students and their friends, 11:30-1:30. Come when you can, stay as long as you like, go when you need to. Good cooking. Lively conversation. An easy way to meet new friends. Come and give it a try. There’s a place at the table for YOU!

A Blessing, for you as you begin a new term, attributed to St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Theresa of Avila:

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given you.
May you be confident knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom sing, dance, praise, and love.

Pr. Jim
