Rev. Harbison
This Monday we celebrate Memorial Day, a day that we honor those who fell in service to our country. I hope that this holiday is not only fun filled but a time of reflection as well.  We celebrate as we honor those whose lives were cut short by the horrors of war. I hope you will join me in prayer for all the families who have lost someone, not only in time of war but also due to the casualties that war can inflict on those who make it home.

Memorial Day also marks the unofficial beginning of summer. Summer is traditionally a low period in church attendance.  As a matter of fact, as late as the 1970's pastors would take June or July off and let that be the only time they were off during the year, knowing that attendance would be less. I hope that we buck that trend and make a real push to check out what we have to offer here at St. Luke's. On June 20 we'll be eating at Los Tios, where there may or may not be a margarita served. July 3, marks one of our most popular services as we celebrate Jazz Communion led by Marvin and his wonderful Trio. And we can all go out to the ball game July 10 as we head out after worship to see the Astro's take on the A's.  A pastor's class will begin on Wednesday, June 15, and continue through most of the summer. So I hope to see each and every one of you throughout the season as we make this summer a summer of service to Christ in fellowship, worship, and outreach.

A Closing Prayer
Great God, you are one God, and you bring together what is scattered and mend what is broken. Unite us with the scattered peoples of the earth that we may be one family of your children. Bind up all our wounds, and heal us in spirit, that we may be renewed as disciples of Jesus Christ, our Master and Savior. .
