Rev. Harbison

Today I'm writing to tell you about a new feature we are going to offer in the Wednesday Word.  We want people to get to know one another here at St. Luke's, so we are going to start having a St. Luke's Spotlight.  Each week we will ask you a few questions and put it in the Wednesday Word. For example: did you know that my favorite food is not fried chicken but boiled crawfish followed closely by perfectly fried southern catfish? Now you do! This is going to be a fun way to get to know our community of faith.  You will be contacted soon and we hope that you will participate in this new exciting attempt at St. Luke's journalism. 

In other news....we are in the process of designing a new website and will soon be meeting to get your input.  Be on the lookout for more information coming soon.

A Closing Prayer    


Here we are, God, your children.
We go astray, yet you forgive us.
We get angry at others, but you keep loving us.
We ask you for a thousand different things,
 and you respond by showering us with blessings.
You offer us salvation, mercy, and love.
Thank you, God, for inviting us
  into this grace-filled relationship.
We pray in the name of the one
  who showed us what grace looks like,
  Jesus Christ. Amen.
