Find creative ways to use food leftovers rather than simply throwing them out. Some food items can be used in recipes well past the time that they'd be considered safe on their own.


Relax.  Find something that helps you relax.  Yoga?  Listening to music?  Playing music?  Taking a walk?  Find something and do it often.

Refectory for Spring Academy

On Tuesday, April 29, and Wednesday, April 30, the Refectory will be open ONLY for reserved lunches, meal plan participants, and meal punch card holders. The Refectory will be near capacity due to the number of guests we will have on campus for Spring Academy.

Special Opportunity - Tuesday of Academy Week
Even though Academy Week is all about transformation, Lutherans know well that sin continues to be a very real part of our lives, something against which we must struggle every day, even in the midst of the Spirit’s work conforming us to Christ.  One concrete, vivid example of sin is adiction—something many individuals and families face in the course of their lives together.  We are very fortunate that one of our academy speakers next week, Cheryl Peterson, systematic theology professor at Trinity Seminary, has agreed to share with us what Trinity’s Addiction Awareness Group has done in terms of offering educational and awareness events for the campus since forming in 2008-2009.   She will be speaking with the Academy Week class from 6:00 – 7:30 pm on Tuesday, April 29th, in Val 310.  All are welcome to join the class for that evening.

Sin, Forgiveness, and Reconciliation: Christian & Muslim Perpectives

The nature of human sin and divine forgiveness has often been a point of contention between Christians and Muslims.

Experience this inter-religious dialogue on Sunday, April 27 from 4-6pm. The Riggs Library, Healy Hall at Georgetown University. For more info and to RSVP, check out http://bit.ly/1lC7GBV. Contact lmuratore@ltsg.edu with questions.
