Upcoming Events


GRACEnotes, October 19

Saturday, October 29, is homecoming at OSU. It's also the day we at Luther House are calling together alums and friends of this ministry for our own 90th Anniversary Homecoming Reunion Party. Festivities start at 4:45 p.m., three hours before kickoff between the OSU Beavers and WSU Cougars. We'll offer tailgate food (sorry, no alcohol), games and Luther House trivia, prizes, tours of the house, and ample time to visit with friends old and new. The party is free. Parking is available at Grace Lutheran (corner of Kings and Harrison). A requested game-day donation of $10 helps support programming for students in 2017. We look forward to seeing you at the party. Go Luther House! Go Beavs!

George MacDonald was the great ninetheenth century innovator of modern fantasy writing. His writings influenced C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein, among others. One collection of his beautiful literary works is called The Gifts of the Child Christ, an anthology I've much enjoyed over the years. So it pelase me when Ann, our Office and Hospitality Coordinator, chose for Monday Morning Prayer a brief passage from MacDonald as the meditation of the day. I repeat it here as I think it serves well all of us who want our lives to count for something:

"What God may hereafter require of you, you must not give yourself the least trouble about. Everything He gives you to do you must do as well as ever you can. That is the best possible preparation for what He may want you to do next. If people would but do what they have to do, they would always find themselves ready for what came next."

Live well and prosper,

Pr. Jim +

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.
