Rev. Harbison

"I believe that appreciation is a holy thing.  That when we look for what's best in a person we happen to be with at the moment, we're doing what God does all the time.  So in loving and appreciating our neighbor, we're participating in something sacred."  Fred Rogers


I understand what Rev. Mr. Rogers is saying in this quote. I am so appreciative and thankful for all that you have done for me and my family during this very difficult time that I cannot express this gratitude. Yet, as I look all the wonderful people who have supported us, I feel the holiness in my thanksgiving. I truly feel closer to the divine in being a part of this community. 

So this is my not near appropriate enough thanks to all of you. We could not have gotten through not only the past few weeks, but the past few months without your love and support. I truly appreciate and thank you all.

Celebrating it's 16th year at St. Luke's, Jazz Communion did not disappoint and was better than ever this year. Thanks to the Marvin Gaspard Trio with special musical guest, Beth Wiehe and our incredible Chancel Choir and Handbell Quartet for your gifts of music on Sunday. If you were here you know what a great service we had and I'm sure you want to spread the word!  If you took photos, we would love to have them for our bulletin board and our Wednesday Word.  Please send your photos and impressions of the service to Mary Ann at and post them on our Facebook page too.

A Closing Prayer    


One God of one people, draw us into such close union with Jesus and with you that all the world may know that Jesus was sent by you, to love us in your name as in his own. Fill us with over flowing love to those now feeling unloved who may learn that you have a place for them as well through Jesus our Savior.
