Upcoming Events


GRACEnotes, April 27

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen, indeed! Alleluia!
Relay for Life Offerings. Remember to support this campus effort to end cancer with your generous donations in the blue jar on the lunch table. With four weeks of offerings collected we’ve already raised $48. Let’s keep the generosity flowing! 
Mt. Angel Abbey Visit Rescheduled, Thursday May 12. Due to the consecration of the new Abbot of Mt. Angel Abbey this Thursday, we’ve postponed our abbey visit two weeks. Details remain the same as I reported last week: depart Luther House promptly at 3:45 to make it in time for 5:15 Vespers (chanted prayer by the monks in the abbey church). Time permitting, we’ll also look at the library designed by the world-acclaimed Alvor Aalto, tour the abbey grounds and hilltop cemetery, and (hopefully) learn about the history of the abbey from one of the monks. Afterwards, we’ll eat authentic a German dinner before heading back to Corvallis. Let it be known that you’d like to join us so we have plenty of transportation. There’s no charge for the trip or supper.
Taizé Worship following TableTalk. This Sunday, May 1, we’ll have TableTalk supper as usual (can you say make your own pizza?), then watch and discuss a brief film to put us in the Holocaust Memorial Week spirit. At 6:45, those who’d like will carpool to Good Samaritan Episcopal Church for Taizé Prayer in the pattern of the ecumenical monastic community in France by the same name http://www.taize.fr/en. If your mom is still in town, you’re welcome to bring her along to supper, the film, and Taizé Prayer.
Luther House and MANRRS Together will join forces for an environmental service project of trail maintenance and habitat improvement at Camp Lutherwood lutherwoodoregon.org Saturday, May 14. We’ll depart Luther House at 9:15 and return by 3:00. Free lunch is provided. Register by contacting me at Luther House info@luther-house.org or signing up on the form on the Luther House door.
Luther House Apartment Vacancy. Do you know of a student looking for a place to live, who’d like to be part of the Luther House family, and share light responsibilities that further our mission? Space is available in the Luther House student apartment for one new tenant beginning July 1. Get the details and application from me or Ann. Curious but not sure? Come and check us out. We’ll give you the low-down.

90 Years and Thriving! This week marks the 90th anniversary of the start of Lutheran Campus Ministry at OSU. To that end we celebrated yesterday with cake and good cheer. Each generation of students has brought unique questions, challenges, insights, and hopes to campus. And Luther House has changed and adapted to meet those needs and desires. The thing that hasn’t changed through these nine decades is the astounding, abundant, amazing grace of God who considers us each precious, reaches out to us in love because (or in spite) of ourselves, and calls us to become fully the persons we are gifted to be in service to the world. Thanks for being part of this wonderful ministry. And thanks be to God for all the blessings bestowed on us to do this good work.
Pr. Jim

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.
