Life With Father

By | November 27th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by: Wayne White“Casual agnostics” would be the way I remember my parents growing up. We did not go to church, matters of faith were not important or discussed, so baptism was something that never took place. My search for faith was a strange process. I knew I wanted a connection to God, but did not know the path. So I looked into Judaism, Buddhism, and Catholicism, all the while feeling this pull towards God. I was married in the Catholic Church, attended Mass and raised our daughter in that tradition, but as the pain of divorce and remarriage became [...]

Baby David

By | November 20th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by: Rev. David Horton  With Advent quickly approaching I am noticing more than usual the babies in our church. Babies and pregnant ladies seem to be around every corner at Gethsemane. New life is in abundance.One of the newborns is named David. I am partial to the name. David’s chubby cheeks are like flotation devices. He is the quietest little baby. He stays in worship with his family and he never utters a peep. He loves to be passed around during worship. During the opening hymn he’ll be with his mom, but during the sermon he’ll be in the arms [...]

I’m Sorry

By | November 13th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

Saying sorry has always been easy for me, too easy in fact. I had no idea how often I threw the words “I’m sorry” around in such an inappropriate way until a beloved family member pointed it out. A few years ago, my great aunt, who truly is GREAT as well as being my grandmother’s much younger, much cooler sister, was visiting my family. She sat at the island in my kitchen watching the craziness of our lives in only the manner she can. After observing for a while, she asked me in her sage way, “Why do [...]

The Joy of Giving

By | October 30th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by: Craig LaFollette I agreed to join the Generosity Committee, because I believe it is an extremely important part of the church. We certainly need our members to support St. Luke’s not only to keep the water and electricity on, but so we can continue to strengthen our ministries and impact the community and world for Christ. For me, generosity, giving and serving, is even more important on a personal level. Don’t get me wrong, though. Paying the bills is very important. However, getting personally involved, experiencing the looks of appreciation and gratitude from the needy and seeing [...]

Paying It Forward At St. Luke’s

By | October 23rd, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

Since joining St. Luke’s in the mid eighties, the blessings I have received at St. Luke’s have been boundless – from being a part of a loving and supportive Sunday School class – the Randy Smith Bible Study group - to meeting the love of my life - Jack Blanton, Sr. -  in that class, and marrying him in the St. Luke’s Chapel.  Jack’s parents had been among the original members who founded the church, and Jack had hitchhiked home from University of Texas to be among those first 200+ members who joined on the first official Sunday, November [...]

My Cup…

By | October 16th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by: Dr. Tom Pace It is an important discipline to say, every day, “my cup runneth over.” Today is one of those days when it is easy. My cup runneth over with gratitude: I am so grateful to the hundreds of people who made the completion of these new facilities possible. On behalf of all the people of St. Luke’s, thank you to the Long Range Planning Committee, the Building Committee, the What If… Capital Campaign Committee, the Grand Opening Celebration Committee, the professional teams of architects and contractors and consultants, and the best church staff anywhere, all [...]

Thankful and Grateful

By | October 9th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Alisa Green Last fall, when it was announced that there would be a church-wide study, Unbinding Your Heart, I felt called to join a small group. My family and I had been members of St. Luke’s for seven years, but we rarely participated in any church activities other than going to service at 9:45 a.m. I would read in the bulletin about different groups, but wasn’t motivated to act. I think what changed my mind this time was because it was a church-wide study, and I liked that it would be connected to the Sunday sermons. I [...]

Without Ceasing

By | October 2nd, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

“Hey Ms Susie! I’m sorry for letting you down. Honestly…” I stared at the Facebook message again in disbelief and pure hope that it was Juan. It had been over a year since I had heard from him and I feared he was either locked up again, or worse, had been killed. “Is this Juan?” I wrote back. “I have been praying for you!!” “Yes, this is me… I’m still free… had a few bumps in the road… but I’m still behaving. I’m so sorry.” After a year in the Juvenile Detention Center and nine subsequent months in the [...]

A Mother’s Story

By | September 25th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Leigh Williams Riley receiving his third grade Bible was the highlight of our week. The service was so special seeing our third grader walk up and receive his own personalized bible presented by Dr. Pace. It is a memory that will forever be etched in our minds. Riley enjoyed the fun Bible exploration activity the kids did at church one evening that helped to sharpen his Bible skills. We were excited that he had become somewhat familiar and comfortable with his new Bible. We didn’t realize how proficient he was until we received this wonderful note from his religion teacher at school: Mr. and [...]
