Join the Conversation! Sunday Mornings at 9:30 a.m.

climatebook The Adult Book Group will begin discussing Climate Church, Climate World by the Rev. Jim Antal on Sunday February 9 at 9:30 a.m. in the Emmaus Room. Climate Church, Climate World argues that climate change is the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced. Hunger, refugees, poverty, inequality, deadly viruses, war—climate change multiplies all forms of global social injustice. Environmental leader Jim Antal presents a compelling case that it’s time for the church to meet this moral challenge, just as the church addressed previous moral challenges. He suggests ways people of faith can reorient what they prize through new approaches to worship, preaching, witnessing and other spiritual practices that honor creation and cultivate hope. Books are available by ordering on Amazon. If you order through the publisher, you may enter promo code RLFANDF30 at checkout for a 30% discount. You are welcome to join the discussion any Sunday!

View this brief video to learn how the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is addressing Creation Care.  You will can find additional resources from the ELCA here.

 

Turn Ordinary Items Into Extraordinary Gifts!

At OSLC, we are supplying and packaging “Baby Care Kits” for Lutheran World Relief (LWR).  Completed kits are distributed by LWR to those most in need as part of Project Promise, the same program to which we send our school kits and our quilts. Last year we sent 15 kits and this year our goal is to send 20-25! These kits are then included with the quilts and school kits that will be shipped in May 2020.

How you can help: LWR has provided clear instructions on what items should be in each kit. (They must be sensitive to the many laws regarding imports to various countries.) At OSLC, we’re hoping to make it easy to participate.

You’ll find a display in the Narthex. Simply sign up to provide as many items as you wish to purchase/contribute and return the item(s) to OSLC. We’ll have a “Baby Care Kit” container in the Narthex so you can turn in the items whenever you have them. The deadline will be Sunday, April 12.

If you have any questions, please contact Kari Jo Grant. Thank you for your generosity!

Watchword Sunday, December 29, 2020

O that today you would listen to God’s voice!
Do not harden your hearts.             Psalm 95:7-8

There is a wonderful tradition here at Our Savior Lutheran Church.  The Sunday after Christmas is called “Watchword” Sunday.  During the service, a basket is passed with many Moravian Watchword verses for each to pick.  Once everyone has a watchword, anyone is welcome to stand up, read their verse and then share first impressions.  The sharing is holy and profound and we feel God’s Spirit among us. Many are moved to write reflections on their Watchwords and for the past several years we have combined these into a Lenten devotional for the OSLC community. Whether you feel moved to write a Lenten devotion or not, we hope you will choose a Watchword and reflect what the scripture verse means.  If you do feel moved to write a reflection for our Lenten devotional, sign up on Sunday or contact the office.
