This Sunday

Dear St Luke Community,

Last Sunday was indeed a special one and I grow increasingly grateful to serve. I will be traveling this week and won’t return until Tuesday the 28th.

This Sunday the Reverend Dan White, Pastor Emeritus at St Luke who served our congregation for many years, will be leading worship.

Dan will be preaching on selected verses from the Book of Ruth and the title of his sermon is A Safe Place to Fall. 

Dan will also be providing any Pastoral care needs while I’m in NY visiting my mom. Dan can be reached at 415-272-4207.

May God Bless You and Keep You,

Fall Speaker Series ~ Who do you say that I am? A three-part series
September 16, 23, 30 after worship in the Bayview Room (note date change)

The question of the historical Jesus has been one baffling scholar from the beginning of time. Join us as we look at different theories from leading scholars of just who this man Jesus was.

Was Jesus a Zealot, a militaristic figure looking to overthrow the Roman Empire? Or was he a mystic, in touch with the divine sphere of reality and wisdom of God? Or was he a political figure, prophet, and Messiah who succeeded in defeating evil and beginning the reign of peace?

Dr. Gregory Love, Professor of Systematic Theology at SFTS, will lead us in a discussion as we uncover why Jesus remains such a popular and controversial figure then and today.
