Upcoming Events

GRACEnotes

GRACEnotes, November 19

Week 8. Lots going on. Midterms are (again) in full swing. I wish you a clear head, quick recall, and good energy for the exams you have to take.

This week is National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week. The attached poster arrived too late for last week’s GRACEnotes. I offer it here in case you’d like to volunteer for one of the remaining H & H service activities offered by the OSU Center for Civic Engagement https://www.facebook.com/events/1511307232453845/.
 
Activities at Luther House are still going strong. Don’t forget, the house is open for your use whenever you see the “Come On In” sign hanging on the front door. You’re welcome to bring friends to study, rest, enjoy a cup of tea or hot chocolate, play a round of ping pong or pool, nap or pray. The house is happier when there’s lots of activity. Come on by and drop on in.
 
Tonight is the second “Pints of Grace” gathering from 8:00-9:00. This one’s at the Red Foxx (corner of Monroe and 23rd Street). Think of it as a mini study break. You buy your beverage and Luther House buys appetizers. Join us for a few minutes or stay the whole hour. Conversation revolves around whatever’s on your mind at the moment. 
 
On the calendar this week is…
 
Today - On-campus office hours, Dutch Bros by the bookstore, 2-3:30; Pints of Grace, Red Foxx, 23rd & Monroe, 8:00-9:00 p.m.
Thursday - Wise Women, noon-1:15; Transgender Day of Remembrance
Sunday - Final Sunday of the church year, worship in a congregation of your choosing
Monday - Luther House Council, 6:00-8:30 p.m.
Tuesday - Come and Go Lunch, 11:30-1:30
 
Looking ahead...
 
Saturday, November 29 - Civil War Parking Lot Fundraiser, Grace Lutheran parking lot, time TBA 
Sunday, December 7 - St. Nicholas Party with White Elephant Gift Exchange, 5:30-7:30
Sunday, February 8 - 3rd Annual Luther House “Beer and Cheese Pairing” Fundraiser, 2:00-4:00
 
News of religious zealots, violent attacks of one religious group against another, senseless and evil atrocities committed in the name of God – all these are abhorrent to people of good will and true faith. "What does God require of us? To do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God" (Micah 6:8). This, not evil, must be our legacy.

Lutheran Campus Ministry at Oregon State University

The name of the OSU-recognized student organization is called Lutheran Campus Ministry at OSU. It's one of many religious groups on campus that, together, form the Spiritual Life at OSU organization. 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.
