Ruth's Harvest Seminary Day
Ruth's Harvest is an ecumenical ministry providing food-filled backpacks for children in Gettysburg whose families experience food insufficiency. This ministry has just recently begun and is feeding over 100 kids. LTSG is signed up to provide volunteers, and we need your help for Oct. 13, from 9-11am at Christ Church Parish House. We will meet at the seminary and either walk or ride together, depending on the weather. To sign up, please send an email to Jane ( You will be contacted with further information for that day. Want to be a part of this growing ministry, but can't make it that day? Send an email and you will be put on a list of potential volunteers for our next Ruth's Harvest Seminary Day.

Thank you!
A big thanks to all who helped with setting up the Refectory for the dance last Friday night. It was truly a case of "many hands makes light work.”

You are welcome to share Advent stars

In November LTSG will send out our Advent prayer stars to all our constituencies. This devotional is compiled with prayers from the heart by our students, staff, faculty, alums and board members. The devotional is easy to share with others, such as those on internship, doing teaching parish, or if you wish to share with your home congregation. Bulk orders for our Advent stars can be made through October 1. Just email with the quantity needed, the name and contact information for the congregation, and whether you will deliver or need the stars mailed.

Seminary dinner courtesy of St. James
The Social Ministry Committee of St. James Lutheran Church invites seminarians, their families, and friends to the first of three seminary dinners scheduled for 2014-15. The dinner is scheduled for Oct. 8, at 6pm in the Refectory. Please RSVP to Priscilla Shuba at or (717)334-0257 by Oct. 6. The other dinners are scheduled for Nov. 12 and Mar. 18. We look forward to seeing you!

Free nutritious food
Fresh lettuce and greens (chard, mustard, kale and mixed lettuce) are available in the community garden! There are also tomatoes galore and green peppers and jalapeno peppers (both green and red hot). Look under the tomato plants for basil and lemon basil, and find parsley under the jalapeno plants. Pull greens, taking the entire plant and leaving one plant every 6 inches. Not sure what is food or how to harvest or prepare it? Email Jane ( to arrange to meet for personalized instruction. While you are in the garden, take five minutes or so to pull up some weeds.The Community Garden is for everyone—students, faculty, staff and anyone else passing through. The garden is located right next to Richard House (walk out the Valentine door by the bookstore and straight ahead over the small hill). Come anytime! Contact Jane Mountain or Ben Erzkus ( for more info.
