Festival of Sankta Lucia
11:25 am - 11:55 am
California Lutheran University’s annual Sankta Lucia Festival will be held at 11:25 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, in Samuelson Chapel.
The dramatic Swedish ceremony, which has been part of the university’s holiday celebrations since its early years, pays homage to the Christian martyr who died at the stake on Dec. 13, 304 A.D. Swedish immigrants brought the tradition to America. The festival honors the character traits of mercy, humility and purity of heart, as seen in the Beatitudes written in the Gospel of Matthew.
CLU’s undergraduate students select five female and five male representatives whose depth of character and faith make them leaders in the CLU community. Lucia, her attendants and their escorts will enter to an ancient hymn and read an adaptation of the legend then the attendants will light the candles in Lucia’s crown.
The Office of Campus Ministry, the CLU Scandinavian Club and the American Scandinavian Foundation of Thousand Oaks are sponsoring the free event.
The chapel is located at 165 Chapel Lane near the corner of Olsen Road and Campus Drive in Thousand Oaks. Parking is available in the lot at the corner of Olsen Road and Mountclef Boulevard. For more information, call the Office of Campus Ministry at 805-493-3228.

Good Luck on Finals!
Quote of the week:
“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.”
"You know, it’s hard to beat Dolly Parton for quotes that stop your excuses and light a fire in you to do what is within your power to do. Even though the most important words here are “do it on purpose,” I can get distracted by “find out who you are.” A lot of the time I’m not so sure who I am or I think I know and then events do not unfold the way I imagined. It’s too easy to let a bad day become an existential crisis ruled by too much navel-gazing and pity party. And I can feel like a need some time and space to work on this. Perhaps I do. But I also think I find out who I am by living purposefully—by bringing my best self to my neighbor and my task. So maybe I’d add a second sentence to read: “When you do things on purpose you find out who you are.” In other words, and here I think Dolly Parton would approve, “Get off your butt and put yourself somewhere useful; you may figure out who you are.”"
-Dr. Colleen Windham-Hughes
Thursdays, 11:25am-11:55am, Samuelson Chapel
Preachers are selected from among the student, faculty, and staff community. The music ranges from our fabulous organ to lively contemporary sounds. After the service, enjoy fellowship and refreshments.
From Torah and Hebrew Bible and New Testament, we encounter God calling creation into purposeful and meaningful life for the common good of all.
Called by God, we are summoned to use our abilities in service for the sake of the world. God chooses us for a purpose… “on purpose”. God’s intention for us is to serve our neighbor… “for purpose”.
