Welcome to St. Luke


Dear St Luke Community,

This Sunday~

Our second Sunday of Advent brings special choir music, the lighting of the peace candle, birthday blessings, and our second Sunday of a new church year. We hear Mark’s overture in 1:1-8 as well as Isaiah 4:1-11. One holds echoes of the other…those of a voice crying out in the wilderness. Crying out has been a theme all week. The world around us and the private world of so many is crying out and aching for comfort, for peace. The voice of one that cries out in scripture cries out to prepare a way for God. Crying out can be a plea or a demand, but either way crying out comes from a place of need. We start there, this second Sunday of Advent, in need. Whether for ourselves, our neighbor, or world, we are in need of God.

In the wilderness of our world,

I am the voice crying out.

I am the one straddling the line of faith and fear,

Of justice and compassion,

With knocking knees and trembling hands,

With the Bible and the newspaper dividing my hands.

And yet,

I step back into the world,

And wrap my arms around every single child of God I meet.

Giving comfort when I am scared,

Finding Holy Ground when I am lost,

Finding the voice in the wilderness,

Wiping away all tears,

Drawing near to the dawn.

(Rev Rachel Pence, SFTS Advent Devotion)

Come this Sunday and receive the Good News of a God who is with us, who comforts and who sends us into the world to prepare the way for divine possibility through God and us together.

See you Sunday,
