open minds and open hearts

LEM is an open-minded, progressive Christian community rooted in the Lutheran (ELCA) and Episcopal traditions.

All are welcome.

The season of Lent begins on Wednesday, February 18th. Find us from 10am - 4pm at our "Ashes on the Way" table in Lobby 10. Join us for a service of song, prayer, and creative reflections at 5:15 pm in W11.

Join us every Wednesday:

5:15 — 6:15 Worship in the W11 Main Dining Room
6:15 — 7:15 Home-cooked dinner prepared by LEM students and chaplains
7:15 — 8:30 After-dinner conversations
During the renovation of the MIT chapel -- beginning Sept. 15, 2014 -- we will worship in the Main Dining Room of the Religious Life Building (W11, at the corner of Mass. Ave and Amherst St.) 
Students, staff, and faculty come to the Lutheran Episcopal Ministry (LEM) with a wide variety of prior religious experiences and personal beliefs. Our weekly worship is rooted in the Episcopal and Lutheran traditions, and includes prayer, hymns, readings from the Bible, a sermon, and Holy Communion.
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 engage the ‘big questions’ together: questions about God, ourselves, our world, discipleship, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, science, believing, knowledge, and much more.
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.
All are welcome. Come join us!
