Upcoming Events

Lutherfest Beer and Cheese Pairing

It's a sellout! We're so excited for the amazing response to Lutherfest 2015. Thanks to all our fans and friends for your support!

Sunday, February 8, the program starts promptly at 2:00 p.m. at the Wheelhouse Event Center in downtown Albany. Come hungry and thirsty for local craft beers, Oregon artisan cheeses, fresh baked breads, and many more amazing culinary treats.

It will be fun, but it will also be educational as brewers and cheese makers introduce us to their products and OSU experts from the Food and Fermentation Science programs fill us in on what’s happening in the worlds of beer brewing and cheese making in Oregon. The Deepwood Strings ensemble will serenade us too. We extend our gratitude to all the vendors supporting this effort and to our three big sponsors – the St. Mark Lutheran Endowment Fund, the Grace Lutheran Foundation, and Ron Mohr and Charlie Owen of Thrivent Financial along with the Thrivent NW Community Board.
 

GRACEnotes

GRACEnotes, January 21

Here’s a shout-out to those who helped during the MLK Day of Service, the Men’s Overnight Shelter, and those who’ve volunteered to assist stocking the shelves at the South Corvallis Food Bank.
 
Another simple way to put faith into action and help feed the hungry at the same time is to bring a can of soup, other non-perishable food items, or cash to Grace Lutheran Church or drop donations off in the box at Luther House between now and February 1. All donations support the OSU Campus Food Bank. Let’s see if we can’t flood the pantry with food donations!
 
Two important events are coming your way in February. The first is Lutherfest 2015, the 3rd annual Beer and Cheese Pairing fundraiser that supplements the Luther House program budget. If you’re at least 21 you can join in the fun. I have some tickets I can give away but need to know by this Sunday, January 25, who wants to use them. If you’re not 21 but would like to get in on the festivities, we could use some greeters and servers. Let me know if you can help. 
 
The second event is the OSU Spiritual Wellness Week, February 9-13, under the theme “Courage, Compassion, and an Open Heart." Each day will be packed with many options for you and your friends to explore spirituality. Shabnam Moghorabi, CEO of SoulPancake is the kick-off speaker, Monday February 9. A Spiritual Life Info Fair will be held Tuesday, a conversation with Buddhist priest and UO Professor of Religious Studies, Mark Unno, will be featured Wednesday, and a Faculty Interfaith Panel is scheduled for Thursday. Lots of other activities are offered as well. Plan now to explore some of the options that week.
 
Considering a call to ministry? Thinking about attending seminary? Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary (Berkeley) discernment weekend is March 19-22. See me for details if you’re interested.
 
This week I recommend...
 
Today - On-campus office hours, 2:00-3:30, Java II
Thursday - Wise Women, noon-1:15
Sunday - Supper + Sustenance, 5:30-7:00, “What Makes for a Well-Lived Life?”
Monday - LH Council, 6-8:30 p.m.
Tuesday - Come and Go Lunch, 11:30-1:30; Orthodox Christian Fellowship, 6-7:00 p.m.
 
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!
 
Pr. Jim
