It takes many dedicated individuals to keep Luther House a thriving place. Meet the people behind the magic.
GRACEnotes, October 7
This past week reminds us that life can be painful, deadly, full of sorrow. Our hearts turn to the community of Roseburg, other public schools and colleges here in Oregon where threats have been made to the safety of those who simply seek to learn, and the hospital in Afghanistan served by Doctors Without Borders where innocent civilians were killed by military force. People of God rightly join the lamentation for innocents who suffer and pray to God for mercy. But people of God do not only pray; they also work to curb violence, ensure that innocents are protected, and seek peaceful coexistence in our diverse communities. Above all, Christian believers hold fast to the hope that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1). Even in the darkest of times, may the light of Christ’s hope shine brightly through us and illumine the way to peace.
Saturday we plan to go "Into the Wild” for a short day hike. Marys Peak trails are closed so we’ll choose a different destination Saturday depending on weather. Meet at Luther House at 9:30 to pack lunches and decide where we’ll hike. Whatever we do, we’ll make sure we return by 2:30.
October 18-20, filmmaker Brandon Wade is coming to interview Luther House students and staff for a national Lutheran Campus Ministry promotional film. We’re only one of four campuses selected! Don’t be surprised when I contact you about being interviewed. I’m counting on you to say, “Yes."
Mission of the Month is a new initiative to support causes we care about. Each month our Tuesday lunch offering will be designated for a ministry students select. October we’re supporting Lutheran World Relief lwr.org to complement our assembling of 50 LWR School Kits, October 18. Begin thinking of future causes you’d like to support.
