Lutheran Campus Ministry at Oregon State University
Welcome to Luther House
We are students, faculty, university staff, international guests, and community members linked by faith and committed to academic life.
Give today to Luther House and help us continue the great ministry we provide to the students of Oregon State University.
We are a Reconciling in Christ Community
No matter your economic situation, political persuasion, marital status, gender, physical ability, ethnic background, or sexual orientation – you are welcome here. "All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place!"
It takes many dedicated individuals to keep Luther House a thriving place. Meet the people behind the magic.
Luther House is located near the OSU campus at 211 NW 23rd Street. The office phone number is 541.753.5213 and is generally open Monday through Thursday 9am to 6pm, and often on Sundays too.
Thanks to each and every one involved in making Lutherfest 2015 a success – sponsors, vendors, presenters, musicians, guests, and supporters. We enjoyed a marvelous afternoon together, learned a lot about cheese and beer production in Oregon, sampled good foods, enjoyed plentiful conversation, and raised money to support ongoing programming through Luther House for the coming year. We are indeed grateful!
GRACEnotes, February 25
Welcome to those who are new subscribers to GRACEnotes. Whenever you know of someone who might like to receive this weekly posting, let me know – or have them contact me – so they can be added as part of the extended Luther House community.
Last week I gave you a Lenten Challenge: "Turn off devises that distract; Tune in to the needs of others; Take up acts of compassion." I’ll admit to finding it difficult to keep the challenge myself – but, I’m working on it. How about you? Don’t be surprised if I ask you when I see you, “How’s the challenge going?” I’ll be interested in hearing your experience.
Yesterday’s last lunch with Lisa was a blast – lots of energy, lots of faces, lots of excellent food, lots of stories. Thanks to those who made time to come by and wish her well in her new venture working full-time at the Mennonite Village. Next Tuesday her replacement, Ann Blegen, will cook and introduce herself to us. You can begin getting to know her then. Welcome Ann.
Did you know this week is OSU Civic Engagement Week? Consider serving the community through one of their scheduled events http://sli.oregonstate.edu/cce/events/civic-engagement-week.
Movie at Luther House. Yesterday, student diners had the option of taking a survey about if and when they’d like to watch a movie together. Though some gave multiple answers, all responses included a preference for Sunday afternoon, March 8, with supper following. Let’s do it! This Sunday at Supper + Sustenance, I’ll ask students there to narrow down the suggested movies to one choice which I’ll announce next week in GRACEnotes. Stay tuned for details but plan to join us on the 8th if you can.
Here’s what I recommend this week…
Today - On-campus office hours, 2:30-3:30, Dixon Rec Center Cafe
Thursday - Wise Women, noon-1:15
Sunday - Supper + Sustenance, “Question Basket” discussion, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Monday - Lutherfest 2015 Planning Team Debrief, 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday - Come & Go Lunch and Birthday Tuesday, 11:30-1:30
Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “To show great love for God and our neighbor we need not do great things. It is how much love we put in the doing that makes our offering something beautiful for God” (quote from Common Prayer for Ordinary Radicals, Shane Claiborne). May her wise words help guide us in our Lenten challenge.
