LCM-Raleigh's weekly gathering is moving to Thursdays at 6:34pm this fall. Why 6:34pm? Because as busy, grateful, anxious, excited, grieving, depressed, curious, joyful, and growing college students, we need to hear Jesus tell us again and again, "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough... Continue Reading →

The Hardest Day

by Meredith Hovis On Tuesday morning, we visited Buchenwald Labor Camp in Weimar, Germany, constructed in the late 1930s. Our tour guide was a local graduate student and extremely knowledgeable of the camp. At one point in time, the camp held more than 100,000 prisoners, many of which were our age at the time --...

Lutherstadt Eisleben

by Abby Cozart On March 5th, we spent the day in Lutherstadt Eisleben. It is a beautiful little town which happened to be the place where Martin Luther was born and baptized. As we learned in our morning tour, at that point in time, infants were baptized immediately after birth. Therefore, Luther’s own mother wasn't... Continue Reading →

Mansfeld Castle

by Conrad Weiden On March 4th and 5th, we stayed in Mansfeld Castle, or Schoβ Mansfeld. The castle is situated on a hill and overlooks the town of Mansfeld where Luther’s parents lived. The castle itself is centuries old and has changed hands many times. Now a hotel, we stayed in the castle with the... Continue Reading →

Halle Hums Handel

by Sam McNeely Halle is a beautiful little town that is about an hour away from Berlin. We visited Halle on a Sunday, which unfortunately is a day when most of the local stores are closed. The Handel Haus is in Halle, which was a ton of fun because it really displayed Handel’s great musical... Continue Reading →

LCM in Berlin

Our plane left DC at 6pm and it was a seven hour flight to Amsterdam where we had an hour layover before continuing... Continue Reading →

Take a break from classes and gather round the fire for s'mores, singing, and stories. Bring your guitar. Bring your appetite. We'll eat dinner in the Stud and then head outside and light the fire on the corner of Brooks and Clark. See you there!

The autumn's crisp air greets us each morning in Raleigh these days. A cold air that wakes you up, like jumping into a mountain creek on a hot summer day - a chill, a rush, a reminder that you're alive. Sometimes an encounter with the Eternal One is like that; sometimes it's a still, silent... Continue Reading →

Our last day in El Paso was a short but memorable day. We had the awesome opportunity to attend worship at Cristo Rey. It was an exciting day in the church as they celebrated 2 baptisms, and 8 confirmations! We were all so welcomed, and congregation members were excited for us to be there. Even... Continue Reading →

We began our last full day in El Paso by visiting an immigrant at her home in a nearby colonia. A colonia is a small rural settlement which typically lacks access to necessary utilities. We visited with a woman who lived there (name left out for confidentiality). She had just gotten running water in December... Continue Reading →

No Photo Friday

Each morning, our group met for a brief litany before starting the day. The topics and experiences of each day challenged us and our morning litanies were a way to ground us and remind us of the “why” for the trip. Before I begin reflecting on Friday, May 19th, I thought I would share a... Continue Reading →

Thursday Thoughts

Thursday we traveled to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico the sister city of El Paso, Texas directly on the other side of the border. To get there, we took a few back streets through El Paso and, all of a sudden, we were at a border crossing. We didn't stop in Juarez initially but traveled to Anapra,... Continue Reading →
