Reflections on Forest Sunday

I ask myself if there is a gospel message in all of this. Perhaps material for a parable? I imagine Jesus saying, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a pond ringed by a small number of trees and a large number of native prairie wildflowers . . . .”

“We Make the Road by Walking” : A 6-Week Adult Forum Series

This 6-week adult forum series will give us a chance to return to some basic themes of Christian faith, practice and identity — hopefully folding new people into our weekly conversations as we all explore questions about how the faith that is in us impacts how we live our life together as a church, and as God’s people in the wider world.

Gathered Around Words: An Invitation to Read Together this Fall

As we return to the familiar rhythms of fall, a time many of us associate with classrooms and school, I’d like to invite you to consider finding a book to read with other members of St. Luke’s. Below you’ll find some of my recommendations, based on topics I’ve heard bubbling up around the congregation and themes I’ve spotted in our life together. In years past I’ve often picked the book and then waited to see who was interested. This time around I’m encouraging you to sign up for books you’d like to read, and once we get four or five people who’ve indicated an interest, we’ll pull you together and help you decide when you’d like to read the book, how often you’d like to meet, where you’d prefer to gather, and how the conversation will be facilitated.
