Journey With Us this Lent

We invite you to join us for a series of daily reflections this Lent. 

Read the reflections on our blog or sign up to receive them by email.

Our theme is "The Truth that Sets Us Free", with reflections on accepting ourselves as children of God and living authentic Christian lives.The reflections will come from a variety of writers, drawing from LEM at MIT, the Young Adults and Graduate Students group at University Lutheran led by our chaplain Kari Jo Verhulst, and our friend Cameron Partridge and the Episcopal Chaplaincy at BU. We hope this collaboration will bring you a rich diversity of voices and perspectives. 

Join us every Wednesday!

5:15 — 6:15 Worship in the MIT Chapel
6:15 — 7:15 Community Dinners prepared by LEM students and chaplains
7:15 — 8:30 After Dinner Conversations

 There are no faith requirements for participation in any LEM worship service or event, ever. You are welcome here.

Our Faith

The LEM community gathers for worship in the MIT Chapel, Wednesdays at 5:15, all year long. Our weekly Eucharistic celebrations are rooted in the Episcopal and Lutheran traditions. Our students, staff members and professors come to LEM with a wide variety of prior religious experiences and personal beliefs. Our life together as a community is less about making sure we all believe the same things, and more about creating a spiritual home where we can engage the ‘big questions’ together – questions about God, about ourselves, about our world, about the Gospels, about science, about believing, about knowledge, and about discipleship.  Many of us find that praying and thinking about these questions is centrally important to our lives and to the decisions we face every day.
