Just Enough: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for September 4, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:24-05:00 September 4th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER God of grace, I am looking for just the right balance. I am content, but I don’t want to be complacent. I am fully satisfied, but I know things can get better. I am so very grateful for my life and the world just as it is, but that nagging sense of “not good enough,” and a desire to push for better continues to plague me. How do I know which attitude to claim [...]

South Louisiana Feels the Love, St. Luke’s!

Between the 115 flood buckets, 7,674 diapers, and a team that went to Baton Rouge to muck out flooded houses, St. Luke’s lived out our Inside- Out Habit of giving ourselves away in generosity and service. While in Baton Rouge, the team had the opportunity to serve a gentleman whose house took on more than four feet of water that didn’t recede for three days. He was disabled and unable to physically take on the task of pulling out carpet and sheetrock, but he was a blessing to the team as he continually offered encouragement, warm smiles, and [...]

Finding a Beautiful Group

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:27-05:00 August 28th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

By Victoria Klinker About four years ago, my father Paul Gatlin was diagnosed with a brain disease called Frontal Temporal Degeneration. The lives of everyone in our family were drastically changed, but the bond of our family has only become stronger. Three years ago, my husband Matt and I were searching to find the perfect church family for our future together. Matt was raised Roman Catholic and I was a very active member of the UCC church. Together, we found St. Luke’s, and I also quickly found the United Methodist Women (UMW.) I established an instant bond with [...]

Think of What is True and Honorable: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for August 28, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:29-05:00 August 28th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, You are a remarkable creator, and every part of your creation is magnificent. The world around me, the life you have given me, the gifts and graces which you breathed into me, the people I have the privilege of loving, the city and country I live in… all of these are so amazing. I confess that too often I focus on the faults in myself, my neighbor, and my world, and fail [...]

Something Very Special

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:31-05:00 August 21st, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

Isolation is one of the largest problems experienced by special needs families. It’s funny how it starts with you just trying to do everything you can for your child... and then, you realize you’re doing nothing for yourself and you’ve cut yourself off from others. It’s not intentional and it comes from a place of wanting to give your special needs child everything they need and not wanting to expose them to situations they can’t handle. Eventually, you don’t take vacations, you don’t attend parties, you don’t go to dinner, etc. It’s funny how innocently the isolation begins. [...]

Always Rejoicing: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for August 21, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:32-05:00 August 21st, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. Sometimes, I need an attitude adjustment. My life is good. Yes, there are some challenges, but often I find myself annoyed more than I should be, and show myself to others as grumpy and cynical and negative. There is much around me that I cannot control, but I can control how I respond to it. One of the most magnificent chapters in all of Scripture is the fourth chapter of Paul’s letter to the Philippians. During the first three weeks of [...]

A Toolbox for the Real World

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:34-05:00 August 14th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Patrick Long-Quian This summer I was provided the opportunity to work at St. Luke’s as an intern in Communications and I was incredibly excited. I learned so much working at St. Luke’s and saw many of the things that go on behind the scenes. I came to appreciate everything the church does and how it does it even more than before I started my internship. Having attended St. Luke’s since third grade this place has nurtured me and spurred spiritual growth and maturity in me. When I was a little kid, I believed what they taught me [...]

Turning Over a New Leaf: Inside-Out Habits With Dr. Tom Pace for August 14, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:36-05:00 August 14th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service.   A PERSONAL PRAYER O Loving God, Every once in a while, I get a reminder that I am mortal. I lead a memorial service and realize that there will be one for me as well. I sort through old family stuff and throw away papers and notes that belonged to parents and grandparents and realize how soon we fade into memory. I wonder what I have passed on to those who follow me, to my children, to those [...]

When the World Shifts: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for August 7, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:37-05:00 August 7th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service.   A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious and merciful God, Right now, things are calm in my world, at least as calm as my world gets. The problems I face seem surmountable. My heart is at peace. Thank you God, for seasons like this. Joy is easy to claim, and gratitude wells up from my heart. I praise you and thank you. But it hasn’t always been so, God; you know that. There have been some days, some seasons, when it seemed like everything [...]

All will be well, all will be well, all manner of things shall be well

by Laurie Noteboom This fall marks a new stage in our family as our oldest son begins high school. As excited as he is for the change, the transition was breaking this mom out in a rash early this summer. However, a meal and an ah-ha moment reminded me all would be well. Recently we stopped at Chick-Fil-A for lunch, as we have so many times in his fourteen years. Between bites, my eye caught the little ones playing in the indoor play-scape and I started to remember all the days he had done the same thing. How many [...]
