Library Hosts Reformation Book Sale
In conjunction with Augsburg Press, the OSL Library will host a Reformation Book Sale. Patrons will have the opportunity to purchase books at a 50% discount, with free shipping. Be sure to check out the 16 books that will be on display through November 13 in the Library. Order forms are available in the Library; payment is to be made when the order is placed.
Second Saturday Movie
This month’s feature will be Do You Believe? When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate. Make it a day at OSL with the movie at 2:30, worship at 5:00, and dinner afterward in The Gathering Place.

New Books for Adults
Woman of God by James Patterson. The world is watching as massive crowds gather in Rome, waiting for news of a new pope, one who promises to be unlike any other in history. It’s a turning point that may change the Church forever. Faith has never come easy for Brigid Fitzgerald. From her difficult childhood with drug-addled parents to her career as a doctor healing the wounded in Sudan to a series of trials that test her beliefs at every turn, Brigid’s convictions and callings have made her the target of all those who fear that the Church has lost its way—dangerous adversaries who abhor challenges to tradition. Locked in a deadly, high-stakes battle with forces determined to undermine everything she believes in, Brigid must convert her enemies to her cause before she loses her faith and her life. Woman of God is an epic, thrilling tale of perseverance, love, trust, and nothing less than what it means to live in a fallen world.
