The Dining Room, a free drop in restaurant for people who are hungry operated by Food for Lane County needs volunteers!  Central Lutheran Church provides volunteers at the Dining Room the second Thursday of each month.  Three shifts are available for two hours each: 9:30am, 11:30am and 1:30pm.  No experience necessary.  This is a wonderful experience of helping to provide a hot meal to people who are hungry.  Please sign up in the narthex after worship.

 The CLC Book Club will meet on Monday, March 12, 2018, at 7:00 P.M. in the CLCW Room to discuss Where the Dead Pause and the Japanese Say Goodbye: A Journey by Marie Mutsuki Mockett. How does one cope with overwhelming grief? That is the question Marie Mutsuki Mockett asks in this book. After the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima in 2011, she traveled to her family’s Buddhist temple and took a pilgrimage to great Buddhist temples in Japan. Mourning her father’s death and wondering about the devastation following the nuclear disaster, the author writes a memoir/travelogue that illuminates the rituals, traditions, and beliefs surrounding death in Japan. The discussion will be led by Elizabeth Uhlig.

And looking ahead:  The CLC Book Club will meet on Monday, April 9th, at 7:00 P.M. in the CLCW Room to discuss Take This Bread: A Radical Conversion by Sara Miles. The discussion will be led by John and Tonya Cockram. Come join us!

 #MeToo?  SAVE THE DATE: Monday, MARCH 5, 2018  LET’S GATHER TOGETHER, 7 PM in the Chapel, for a restorative service for all those affected by interpersonal abuse and other trauma.   The service is dedicated to Central Lutheran Church member Andrea Wiggins who died at the hands of her husband on March 5, 2010. Come join us as we mark this date with new meaning and honor all who are affected by abuses.
