Dear St. Lukers,

Merry Christmas from your St. Luke’s Staff! 

No matter which intersection you find yourself at, we pray that through all of our worship and ministries this season you have experienced Advent and that somehow the work of waiting, resting, worshipping and seeking has brought you to this glorious day. May hope, peace, joy, and love abound where ever you are and however you celebrate this day. We pray you have unwrapped the incredible gift of love as Jesus is born anew, and that you have noticed the gift tag holds YOUR name and is signed by God.

Please remember those who are working today, who find themselves without a family to celebrate with, those who face an empty chair at the table today, and for whom the season seems more blue than jolly. Offer a prayer, invite someone to your celebration, share what you have, and awaken disciples to the gift which comes for you, and for others. May your celebrations reveal the Kingdom of God’s love in real and tangible ways for others to see and be welcomed. We leave you with this poem from Howard Thurman which will be a part of our Christmas Worship on Sunday (at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m. all in the Sanctuary). Come join us just as you are and let’s begin the work of Christmas together. It’s a blessing to serve alongside you to make St. Luke’s a place of welcome in the name of the Newborn King, Jesus Christ. 

When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal the broken,
to feed the hungry,
to release the prisoner,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among the people,
to make music in the heart.
 
Merry Christmas and a blessed 2020!
Your St. Luke’s Staff

Looking Ahead at St. Luke's
