This week, we moved in a new direction with Sunday morning hospitality as we installed some new coffee makers, which offer convenient, portable air pots. We’ll be sharing more information about this expanding ministry soon, but we are thrilled to offer delicious, hot coffee with minimal preparation and clean-up.
FAREWELL BRUNCH FOR THE KETOLA FAMILY
This Sunday, June 25, following the 9:30 am worship
The wonderful Ketola family will be moving back to Finland, this summer, so we would like to surround them with a Farewell Brunch. Please bring a dish to share as we send them off with full tummies and hearts. Roope will be studying at OSU this fall.
This past Memorial Day, I had lunch with some of my extended family. Right at noon, we served up hot dogs with sauerkraut, bbq chips, watermelon, cookies, and glasses of milk, punch, and water. It was your typical Memorial Day picnic fare that could’ve been served in any backyard or under any park pavilion. It wasn’t anything big or fancy. What made this gathering different, though, was that it was in the basement of First Lutheran in Over the Rhine.
As we gathered from various locations for the community meal, small moments and gestures of joy were everywhere. There were smiles and handshakes. Conversations were laced with words of gratitude. Damp washclothes wiped down tables in between guests and one guest pushed his lunch aside for a few minutes while he played spirituals and gospel hymns on the piano in the corner. By themselves, each of these didn’t amount to much, but together, these little acts of kindness swirled in a beautiful expression of our shared humanity.
God has a habit of using little things to do big stuff.
this Saturday! September 16
in the Fellowship Hall
Join us for a fun night playing games with our Family Promise guests.
Bring a dish to share (no nuts please) and a favorite game if you have one.

Lord of Life and Gloria Dei, Cincinnati, will walk together in the Cincinnati Pride Parade as a witness to the promises of God which extend to all people. We know that not everyone is ready to be part of such an event, but for those who are, we invite you to join us. Pastor Rob Bork and Gloria Dei participated last year and have invited us to walk with them as a unified people.
The mission of Cincinnati Pride is to provide the Greater Cincinnati LGBTQ community and their allies a forum to celebrate and affirm our individuality and renew our dedication to promoting acceptance of all individuals regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
It's not too late to walk with us!

Today is Maundy Thursday. In the Christian Church, it is the day we remember Jesus giving his disciples one last instruction, one final mandate, a new maundatum. He said, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you... By this everyone will know that you are my disciples." John 13:34-35
I caught a glimpse of that love this past Sunday, when, in an act of solidarity with Jacqui Roell and her journey of breast cancer, a dozen women donned headscarves. I asked them why they did it and what they experienced. Here are a few excerpts:
