ILSConnect

Keeping us all connected with what's happening at the ILSC and around London! 

 

Happy Easter! 🙌🐣🐰


 

In Person! - Russell Square
Monday April 5th, 1pm

La Pasquetta (Easter Monday) @ Russell Square

With restrictions loosening up and the Easter festivities in full swing, we wanted to (safely) regather for an afternoon picnic at Russell Square!

While the sun may have come and gone again, a little cold weather or rain won't stop us from coming together and sharing in a time of celebration. So grab some Easter leftovers, dress for the weather, and join other ILSC students as we come together for an afternoon of catching up and supporting one another :)

Since we're restricted to groups of six, we ask that if you plan on attending please send an RSVP email to students@lutheran.org.uk or mark your availability on the Facebook Event link below so we can prepare accordingly and split into multiple groups if needed.

No Afternoon Tea This Week 😥

Unfortunately we will not be meeting for an afternoon tea this week. We've decided that with all the festivities with family and local churches starting on Friday, we'd take the week off for everyone to enjoy time with their friends and local congregations but make sure to join us for La Pasquetta on Monday in Russell Park!

Eco-Challenge Conclusion

A lot has happened in the last six weeks so we wanted to thank you all whether you joined for a singular week, tried your hand at all six, or even just browsed the resources we provided! We hope this challenge has pushed you to think about something in a new light and to consider how a small change in our daily habits can have an enormous impact on the environment and our community around us. If you enjoyed the challenge or have suggestions for how we can improve it moving forward, why not drop us an email or Facebook message with your thoughts? We'd love to hear from you!

ILSC Book Club

March's book is A Thousand Splendid Suns by  is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years - from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding - that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives - the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness - are inextricable from the history playing out around them.
Join us on 7 April to discuss your thoughts! Whether you've read a little or a lot, we all have something to share. Upcoming reads:
April: Blindness by José Saramago

Feeling a bit ...?

Many of us are feeling a bit weary and fed-up at the moment and may just need some space to talk. If you're feeling a bit down or anxious or sad or on edge or a bit lost in the midst of everything going on around you - remember that the chaplain is here to provide support for you. Feel free to get in touch over the phone or email if you'd like to schedule a time to talk.
