Turkey Seeks Sanctuary at St. Luke’s

On Friday, November 20, 2015 a wild turkey wandered onto the campus of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Orlando, Florida. St. Luke’s staffers captured the first photos of the bird that spent hours going from door to door trying to get into the church’s sanctuary.

The church live streamed the turkey’s timely visit on Periscope and posted photos to its Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. Within days, tens of thousands of people had seen the St. Luke’s turkey.

Social media comments include:

“Pardon for sin and PIECE that endureth….I’ll take a dark piece please….”

~ The. Rev. Jennifer Stiles Williams, St. Luke’s Lead Pastor

“Maybe he is thankful that he is a wild turkey and not in the frozen section of a supermarket now.”

~ Jaylene Rodriguez Garau

“Looking to audition for the live nativity. Wants to be the turkey in the straw.”

~ Joline DeHart Krolicki

St. Luke’s values Christ-centered acceptance, hospitality, and community so it was only fitting that the turkey found its way to the church. St. Luke’s wishes everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
