March 11 Weekly Update

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Weekly Update March 11, 2020

Lent Book Discussion and Meditation tonight, Wednesday, March 11th and Wednesday, March 25th, at 7:00 p.m.
We will discuss John Dominic Crossan’s book, “The Greatest Prayer: Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of THE LORD’S PRAYER”.

A COVID-19 Update from Bishop Perry:
“It seems that this Lent we will be greatly challenged by the continuing spread of the COVID-19 virus. I invite all of us to continue to ground ourselves in our daily prayer and scripture readings. I also hope that you are able to reach out to one another to offer support and care….This Lenten season, I believe God is calling us to offer love, hope, and common sense worship practices.” Bishop Perry suggests we view Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s address on COVID-19 https://episcopalchurch.org/concerning-covid19 .
“In this time when we are all affected by the coronavirus, whether directly or indirectly, whether physically, biologically, psychologically, spiritually, and for many economically, it may be helpful to remember that we’re in this together. Jesus came among us in the first place, to show us the way to be right and reconcile with the God who is the creator of us all, and right and reconciled with each other as children of this one God who has created us all, and therefore as sisters, brothers, and siblings, one of another….So look out for your neighbors, look out for each other. Look out for yourselves. Listen to those who have knowledge that can help to guide us medically and help to guide us socially. Do everything that we can to do this together, to respond to each other’s needs and to respond to our own needs.” ~ Bishop Curry

Feb. 26 Weekly Update

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Weekly Update Feb. 26, 2020

LENT is Olde English for SPRING!!!! When all the world comes alive again and we re-member, join together again, and celebrate the new life coming from the earth. The medieval custom of fasting was to allow those who worked the land and fed the community in so many ways, to have time for prayer; so an intentional season of fasting and feasting and prayer is upon us.
Fasting and Feasting! Adding the letter “e” creates an image for everyone to come to the table and share in the food and companionship. This Lent let us be aware and thankful at every meal, of the blessing of food that feeds our body and every person at the table that feeds our soul. And if we are eating on the run, or alone, still give thanks that you know Jesus hears our “Thank you!” Let the “e” in feasting be an opportunity to be more intentional about picking up one extra item at the grocery for the SWOOPS food pantry for our hungry EMU students this Lenten season.

On March 5th, Thursday evening, the Bishop is coming to visit! The Right Reverend Dr. Bonnie A. Perry will meet with us over appetizers and prayer. The Open House starts at 6:00 p.m.

Lent Book Discussion and Meditation on Wednesdays, March 11th and 25th, at 7:00 p.m.
We will discuss John Dominic Crossan’s book, “The Greatest Prayer: Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of THE LORD’S PRAYER”. Sign up sheet at coffee hour.
