Weekly Update-January 8, 2015
The feedback on last week’s kick off to “You Asked…And the Pastors Answer” was very positive. All five of us enjoyed the opportunity to share together with you. I know that in typical Bill style I talked too much, but then you’ve come to expect/understand/forgive that in me after all these years…at least I hope so.
You can imagine that we received many more questions than we can possibly answer in this kind of a format, even over the next three weeks. However, we have had them copied exactly as they were written (spelling and grammar left as submitted—English teachers would have a heart attack if they saw some of them!) and we have categorized them according to topics in order to answer as many generally as we can.
But that will not be the end of things. We will be using your questions to inform future sermon series, small group and church-wide studies, and topics for Sunday School classes, among other learning opportunities. As always, we also invite you to make an appointment with one of us to talk privately and in person about questions you have. Another option your class or group may want to think about is having a couple of us meet with you and do the same thing in a smaller setting. We always welcome that opportunity as well.
This coming Sunday Pastor Jenn and I (in Traditional) and Pastors Corey and Jad (in Contemporary) will be using the annual recognition of Jesus’ baptism to speak about the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. Our scripture texts are Mark 1:4-11, Ephesians 4:1-6, and 1 Corinthians 11:23-26. Now that we are all back from holiday vacations and the staff has returned, we will be celebrating Holy Communion in all venues. Even though the food of the holidays was wonderful, there’s nothing like the food of a Holy Day: the bread and wine taste of love.
Join us, because it’s not STLUKE’S without U.
Grace and Peace –
Your Clergy Team.
