It seems that week one came in like a lion and out like a lamb. What started with thunderstorms and a temporary delay in our schedule soon ended with a group of connected students and incredibly blessed weather. Decorah is seeing steady 80s and sunshine this week with the occasional rain. As they say, the corn will be "knee high by the fourth of July!"
This past Sunday, students, faculty, and staff gathered for their first experience at a full LSM worship service. Traditionally during weekdays, we end with abendmusik and evening prayer. But during Sunday morning worship, we included traditional cantor and hymns. The chapel choir sang an anthem and the handbells rang beautifully throughout the CFL. What a beautiful first worship service.
We have a week full of events for the LSM community. Tonight is students' first dorm devotion led by Rev. Michael Costello, preceeded by an evening of Musical Jeopardy and a Bach Cantata rehearsal. Faculty recitals, our first community "Hymn Sing" and the weekend mystery trip are all reasons students are antsy in their seats with excitement. The LSM spirit is in full bloom!
Stay tuned this week from student posts and a word from our chaplain!
