Another senseless and brutal attack on our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters. May the tender passion of our God embrace each, and everyone of us, as we mourn our losses and resolve to end the bigotry.
“Whoever you are and wherever you find yourself on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.” You will hear these words every week at St. Luke’s, as we invite you to join us for the Word and Sacraments that are God’s gifts to us all. It does not matter who you are, what you look like, what you have done in the past, or who you love. God’s grace is not petty; it is not earned. It is radical and universal.
With that in mind, we at St. Luke’s seek to mirror God’s healing love, by making this community a safe place for skeptics, doubters, seekers, those who have been wounded by the church, those who have never darkened its doors, as well as “believers” who’ve never left. As a diverse community we have discovered in God a “oneness” greater than our differences. We have come to know that our variety reflects the divine comprehensiveness of the God of all created things.
People come to church for a variety of reasons. In some subtle or profound way, the Spirit of God drew you here. “Belief” is less an issue of the head, than an issue of the heart. Our hearts are open to God and to you as well. Whether this is your first or one hundredth time worshiping with us, we hope to know you better and to make ourselves known to you.
Welcome to the Congregation of St. Luke’s!
