Theatre Y presents, “Penelope, O Penelope” at St. Luke’s

PENELOPE, O PENELOPE is a modern chamber tragicomedy inspired by Homer’s Odyssey. In this new translation by Artistic Director Melissa Lorraine, Dinah awaits her husband’s return from war after twenty years, with a vengeful suitor hungry at her door. Elias—the war-riddled, hero-turned-vagabond—searches for redemption from his bloodshed and a way home from spirits and memories alike. The production employs shadow, dance, language and architecture to ask how long love lasts…and at what cost.

Sermon: Sunday, April 12, 2015: Second Sunday of Easter

Like the disciples being commissioned to leave their locked hideout, St. Luke’s Logan Square and Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries are heading out on new paths. You have seen, experienced, and touched things here that you will need to tell others who come after you, so they believe the story of St. Luke’s. We will need to find new ways to have fellowship with one another. We’ll continue in some of the old ways. I’ll continue to tell the story of this remarkable congregation as I travel– how you had faith in Pastor Erik, how you imagined a new way of being church together – how we invested in you and watched you grow.

Celebrating Our Extraordinary Ministries!

We will be welcoming members of the ELM staff and board of directors this Sunday, along with friends and supporters, to our worship. Executive Director Amalia Vagts will preach. The Rev. Jen Rude will assist, and board member Margaret Moreland will be a reader within our service. We will be taking up a justice offering to support ELM’s on-going ministry as they continue to support and advocate for the full inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the life and ministry of the Lutheran church. There will be a light coffee hour reception in the narthex immediately following worship, and all who would like are invited to join Pastor Erik and our guests for an informal brunch at El Cid afterward.
