OCTOBER 1-4, 2017
Sunday supper through Wednesday lunch
CHAPLAIN: The Rev. Pat Harris, retired New England Synod pastor and interim pastor
THEME: Taste and See that God is Good
COORDINATOR & SONG LEADER: Judy Hakanson Smith, AIM, Calumet Staff
This annual fall lutherhostel is based on the hymn from Evangelical Lutheran Worship, "All Who Hunger, Gather Gladly, #461. Pastor Harris will facilitate discussions on biblical passages concerning manna, the exodus, gathering and being sent out into the world. We will sing together with Judy and learn the backgrounds of several creation hymns. Bread making, cider making, applesauce making, & apple crisp creating are planned for those guests who enjoy cooking.
Lutherhostels at Camp Calumet are popular gatherings for adults over the age of 50. People come from all over New England to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation here in the mountains and lakes of New Hampshire.
A typical day at a Lutherhostel will include morning devotions and singing, a bible or topical study with the guest chaplain, delicious meals in our conference center, and time to enjoy the Calumet property through walks, time on the beach, a ride on a pontoon boat, or sitting on our sunny porch in a comfortable rocking chair. Judy will plan an excursion to explore the beautiful fall colors and flavors of autumn. Of course, there will be Chef Wade's fall flavored pies and apple cider to enjoy. And naturally, a Lutherhostel would not be complete without a good old fashioned hymn sing one evening. Evenings include popcorn and lots of games...bridge, cribbage, dominoes, Skip-Bo have been known to be played in the dining room!!! Recently Parchesi has made a re-appearance too!
