The Reverend Bruce Booher (Pastor Bruce) is our interim pastor.  If you need pastoral care, please call Pastor Bruce at
864/482-8425 (Seneca, SC).


I want to share with you some insights that I have found very meaningful. There are two primary ways people relate to the world – manipulation and appreciation, or more simply doing and being. Manipulation – working in and with this created world – is an important part of the relationship God intended for humans to have with the world. God calls us to work and help shape this world, helping it to become the world God intends it to become. But this work is only part of God’s calling for us. Life in today’s society has become terribly imbalanced, focusing so strongly on the doing side and placing little value on the being side.

Let’s take a closer look at "doing” and being.”  Keep in mind that many activities will involve both doing and being in varying degrees.

Manipulation or Doing            Appreciation or Being

Making                                       Relationships

Possessing                                  Awe and Wonder

Buying                                       Creative Play

Selling                                        Beauty

Controlling                                 Worship

Using                                          Silence, Reflection

The vast majority of technological advances are on the “doing” side. That is the side that most of us get paid for. That is what is valued and given worth in our commercialized society. It is what we have gotten good at. There is a very human tendency to focus on what we are good at and to shy away from what we are not familiar with and don’t feel competent at. I want to emphasize again that I believe that everything on the “doing” side has its place in the life to which God calls us. However, the imbalance in our society between the two sides is devastating, and amplifies the misuses and abuses of the doing side. When we look at our society and our lives from this perspective, we can gain insight into many of the problems we face, including the breakdown of the family, the loss of a sense of community and connectedness, aimlessness and loss of purpose, and more. Madeline L’Engle points out that the word disaster literally means being cut-off or separated from the stars.

So, what can we do about this? A good place to start is with God’s gift of the Sabbath. I believe God gave us the Sabbath so that we might have a healthy, dynamic rhythm in our lives of moving back and forth between doing and being. Keeping Sabbath is not just about physical rest, it is about taking time to focus on, and value being, and especially being in God’s presence.  Consider these words from a Jewish prayer welcoming the Sabbath:

Our noisy day has now descended with the sun beyond our sight.

In the silence of our praying place we close the door upon the hectic joys and fears, the accomplishments and anguish of the week we have left behind.

What was but moments ago the substance of our life has become memory; what we did must now be woven into what we are.

On this day we shall not do, but be.

We are to walk the path of our humanity, no longer ride unseeing through a world we do not touch and only vaguely sense.
(Gates of Prayer, p. 245.) 

Let me encourage you to find ways to strengthen this Sabbath rhythm in your life – moving back and forth between time spent doing and time spent being. I think you will find it a wonderful blessing.

                               News and Notes                              


Lutheroad – It's a Wrap!

Nineteen children ranging in age from 5 to 11 participated in Lutheroad. This year's theme was Peace. The area director was Justice Mullen and camp counselors were Barbara Ramsdell and Tucker Nelson. They led the children with crafts, songs, bible study and outdoor activities.


Special thanks go out to Ken Heckel, Mattison Scott, Cathy Hubbard, Dru Yount, Phyllis Everett and Denise McKain who volunteered their time at Lutheroad through serving snacks, lunches, and making early and late stay possible. Without their help, Lutheroad would not have been possible.


I also want to thank Stewart and Elaine Bruce for hosting the counselors at their home; and the families that provided dinner to the counselors: Bill Kendig, Denise & Perry McKain, and Clint & Judith Eastham. Also thanks to the Learning Board, Worship Board, Ministry Development, Service Board and Fellowship Board for providing breakfast for the counselors.


Additionally, I want to thank all the members of the LCOS family for their financial support through the Duck Derby, Chili Cook-off and scholarship funds; snack donations for the campers; and Ali Eastham, Lisa Fuller and Denise McKain for strategic planning.


On a more personal note, the two days I was on-site to help out in the week of Lutheroad was a wonderful experience and I realized that Lutheroad is a great tool to reach out to our community.


With many thanks,

Diana Riskevics


Habitat for Humanity – Thank you!


Thank you to LCOS for your support of this year's Habitat for Humanity Faith Build. Our congregation generously donated a total of $1,320 to support this ministry. Sincerest thanks go to the following LCOS members who donated food for a delicious lunch on May 31: Mim Voet, Liv Osby, Cathy Hubbard, Elaine Bruce, and Sandy Bright. It was very well received and appreciated by the build volunteers, including the future homeowner. LCOS also supported build efforts that week. 


Construction on the home in Greer continues into July, so anyone interested in helping with the build still has an opportunity to participate; please contact me for details if you would like to help with this Faith Build (amramnar@hotmail.com or 864/881-8103).


With deep gratitude,

Asha Carnell

It's Open Enrollment Time for
2019-2020 School Year




Dear Parents,

We are accepting registrations for the 2019-2020 school year, and we would love to have your child learn with us!

Our K2 class offers 2-day (T-Th), 3‑day (T-W-Th) and 5-day options;
K3 offers 3-day (T-W-Th), 4-day (Tuesday-Friday), and 5-day options; and K4 classes offer both 4-day (Tuesday-Friday), and 5-day options. As we follow Greenville County School’s holiday schedule, we miss a good many Mondays for holidays. To help families get the maximum out of their tuition, starting in Fall 2019, we will not offer part-time options on Mondays. Children attending four or five days will have Amazing Athletes on Fridays.

For the upcoming school year we are offering a Referral incentive. For every family you refer (the child would need to register AND start school in August), you will receive $10 off your first month's tuition.

To reserve your child’s place, please fill out an application and return it to the school office along with the non-refundable registration fee.  Registration papers can be printed from our website (osldayschool@bellsouth.net) or picked up at LCOS. It will be important to reserve your child’s spot as soon as possible because space is limited, and spots will fill quickly.  Please note, all registration forms must be complete and a check or cash for the full registration fee should be included.

We are very excited for our plans for next school year at Our Saviour Lutheran. In an attempt to meet the needs of the parents and children, we have tried being as flexible as possible with class schedules. We have made a few changes for the 2019/2020 school year to enhance the learning experience for our students. Please be in prayer for our efforts to reach more families in the surrounding area. If you have friends or neighbors who are currently searching for an early childhood center, please spread the word about the greatness of OSLS.


Katie Franks, Director

Triennial ELCA Youth Gathering:
Minneapolis, MN  ●  June 29-July 3, 2021



In memory of Wally Ring

Dodie Anderson

Rosalie Burnett (for OSCM Pantry)


If you made a memorial donation to LCOS in June
that is not listed here, please contact the Church office
so we may adjust our records.  Thank you.



We extend our Christian love and sympathy to the family & friends of Timothy Dallman (son of Bill Dallman, Nancy Nix's very dear friend).


May all who mourn find comfort in the promise
and the power of the resurrection.


Almighty God, source of all mercy and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with those who mourn, that, casting all their sorrow on you, they may know the consolation of your love; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

~Prayer from the Lutheran Book of Worship




We need missionary & flower sponsors
during the second half of 2019, including July!

Prayerfully consider signing up on the charts in our Narthex.

Support for Dr. Jeffrey Truscott as ELCA missionary in Singapore on a designated Sunday is only $25.

Chancel flowers are billed by our florist (Barrett's Flowers) around the end of each month and are a discounted value for about $85 total for both arrangements including delivery.

Thank you!



Prayer is a powerful gift which each Christian possesses.  Sometimes it is only when we or our loved ones need the prayers of others that we know how very important prayer is!  Our Lord said that we should pray and that we should be persistent in our prayers.  Martin Luther said it didn’t matter when we pray, not how, as long as we do it!  Here is a listing of those for whom we have offered to God our prayers of intercession:
