Widening Our Welcome at St. Luke's

The Widening Our Welcome made a great start as a Task Team this morning, and will meet again in two weeks. Please feel free to be in touch with Anne Wright ( with questions.

A Service of the Word with Lectio Divina

We will continue to meet on Zoom on Wednesdays 11 a.m. through the month of July.

All are welcome at this virtual gathering, where we reflect on the Gospel passage for the coming Sunday with the questions "What word or phrase stands out for you?" What speaks to you in the passage?" "What meaning had you not perceived before?" "What is the Gospel asking you to do today?" guiding us, and share in a liturgy of the word.

St. Luke's Outdoor Worship

The next Outdoor Worship will take place on Sunday, July 25th, 2021 at 4 p.m.. Please register for that here

Hope to see you there! 
St. Luke's Storytelling and Social Time

For the month of July, you're invited to keep up the Storytelling Time connection during Rev. Victoria's drop in office hours from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays. 

Here is the Zoom link:

Many thanks to Anne and Helen for their efforts around Storytelling Time. This space for sharing, and the connections made on a Thursday afternoon have been a tremendous blessing during these pandemic days. Heartfelt thanks to everyone who shared stories and to those who listened.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

Rev. Victoria's Office Hours on Zoom
 Click here to drop in to Zoom any time between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesdays. As noted above, you may see St. Luke's friends when you drop in, and this is a good way to maintain the Storytelling Time connections made these last months. 

Rev. Victoria will also be available by phone or Zoom from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. if you would like to book an appointment for one-on-one conversation. Please email her to book your time.

If Wednesdays aren't convenient for you, just email Rev. Victoria to find another time to connect.

While there is hope in our gentle emerging from pandemic restrictions, these are still difficult days, but we can get through this together! 
  Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.
