Book Discussion: Everyday Spirituality

Looking Ahead to Our Book Group Discussions

Our book discussion group will be meeting over Zoom every other Tuesday to discuss a new book, “Everyday Spirituality” written by New England Synod Bishop James Hazelwood.   “Everyday Spirituality” is exactly what the title says – an invitation to honor ordinary experiences as holy ground.  We don’t have to go on a retreat or sign up for spirituality lessons – we can stay where we are and sense divine presence in what we do each day.  Bishop Hazelwood weaves together insights from scripture and theology with his own experiences and the stories he has received from others.  He writes with the heart of a pastor and a mystic.  

Please contact Paul Manganiello or the church office with any questions and for Zoom information.

If you would like a copy of Everyday Spirituality, you can order the book through a local bookstore, an online vendor such as Amazon or Target, or through the NE Synod by contacting Martha Whyte at the New England Synod. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Synod’s Jubilee 2020 Fund and the Fund for Leaders to help eliminate seminarian debt. 

GOD’S WORK – OUR SOCIALLY-DISTANT HANDS, Sunday, September 13, 2020

Sunday, September 13, is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one Church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. Our Savior Lutheran Church is no stranger to serving and loving our neighbors, not just on this special day of action but throughout the year.

Members of Our Savior Lutheran Church carry out Christ’s message to “feed the hungry” in a variety of ways: making monthly dinners for residents of Dismas House and Listen Community Services; assisting  Dartmouth College students in preparing weekly Friday community meals at our church; donating food to our local homeless shelter; participating in advocacy for Bread for the World as well as contributing financially to ELCA World Hunger, and many other actions.

Let’s take this opportunity and combine these two events as we engage in “God’s Work. Our Hands. Sunday” and “National Hunger Action Month” and prayerfully consider how we may make our commitment to take action in one (or more) of the following ways:

1)     Volunteer to help make one monthly dinner for Dismas House or Listen Community Services.

2)     Deliver a meal or groceries to a neighbor unable to go out.

3)     Write a letter to support the work of Bread for the World.

4)     Donate food items for the Upper Valley Haven Food Shelf

5)     Make a financial contribution to ELCA World Hunger

6)     Contact your congressional representatives to urge them to support legislation for food funding such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and WIC  (the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for women, infants and children).

Prayerfully consider one of the above opportunities and take action. As church we are guided by our life in Christ to share the love of Jesus and serve our neighbors – even if such acts of service look different this year in the time of COVID-19. Thank you!
