GRACEnotes

GRACEnotes, May 27

Congratulations Graduates! We at Luther House are getting ready to celebrate the graduates among us next week at the Tuesday BBQ and Blessing of the Grads. We have a larger-than-normal gang of grads which means we’ll whip up a bigger-than-normal picnic lunch so everyone who shows up gets in on the celebration. Did I mention cake? Or gifts for the grads from Luther House? Or photos? Yes, all that will be included too. Just in case you’re interested in who among us is receiving diplomas, they include (in no particular order): William Burgess, Josh McGuffie, Claude Bullock, Tom Zhang, Andrew Thomas, Kate Janssen, Rachel Webber, Arlyn Moreno Luna, Yosuke Masuda, and Laura Pahlmeyer. Congratulations all!
 
Friday, May 29, is the annual OSU Day of Caring. Various service projects are provided through the Center for Civic Engagement in collaboration with United Way of Benton and Linn Counties. Granted, you have a lot to do to finish the term, but if you want a study break from the books with a goal of doing something beneficial to others, consider participating. Register at http://sli.oregonstate.edu/dayofcaring.
 
Student Leadership Team 2015-16. A core team of five students has volunteered to serve as the 2015-16 Student Leadership Team to guide our student organization, officially known as Lutheran Campus Ministry at OSU. They are Kevin Bishop, Erika Cook, Justin Honda, Jonathan Marcotte, and Benjamin Post. Yesterday those attending lunch cast their ballots to ratify the SLT. There’s still a chance to vote next Tuesday if you missed yesterday. Thanks to the team of five for their willingness to serve and for those who already cast ballots. Results will be reported in next week’s GRACEnotes.

A Prayer for All Students. Teacher of Truth and Source of Wisdom, we rejoice at the countless opportunities we have to learn, ask questions, seek answers, and gain understanding. Stretch our hearts, minds and spirits to embrace ideas we’ve never considered and experiences we’ve never had. Day by day, help us to apply these lessons in our own lives so that we might change the world and make a positive contribution to the families, communities, and organizations of which we’re a part. Thank you for the opportunity to study and learn, and for all who support us as we do.  In gratitude we pray. Amen.
 
Pr. Jim
