At the heart of ELCM’s ministry is fellowship, out of which comes service and part of which is worship. But simply put, we meet regularly, hoping to stay balanced whilst walking through our time at Stanford/Palo Alto. Sunday and Wednesday at 6pm, little communities check in with each other and break bread. (Occasionally, the dinner groups might be invited to arrive early and cook together.) Then from 6:45-7:45pm on Sundays and Wednesdays, everyone’s invited into a continuing conversation, see below.

Young Adults of UniLu are organizing Storytelling Nights: monthly evenings of food, fellowship, and storytelling.
Once a month, we join for dinner and casual conversation outdoors on the lawn before settling in to hear stories from each other (original or borrowed) on a topic. In August the prompt was to tell any story about an “ancestor;” past month’s stories have related to things such as “a time when you faced a fork in the road of your life and the path you took.”
Throughout the month of September, we invite you to reflect on a fictional character who’s been meaningful to you. We’ll meet the first Thursday of class, September 28, 5:30pm at University Lutheran. For more information see http://www.universitylutheran.church/storytelling.html
You can bring a story, improvise a story, or just come to listen to others’ stories. All are welcome, so feel free to bring friends.
