Something Very Special

By | 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. [...]

A Toolbox for the Real World

By | 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 [...]

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

By | August 7th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

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 [...]

Mosaic: A Music Camp for Children

By | July 31st, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Faith Ayers Last week was our first Mosaic Music Camp, an outreach program of the Children’s and Fine Arts Ministries at the Gethsemane Campus. Over thirty K-5th grade children from all over the Gulfton/Sharpstown area came to this week-long program. We had no idea what to expect, but we had a hope that we could create a space where children could discover their musical abilities in a safe, fun, and loving place at a minimal cost to their families. God did that in a big way. He made a way for us to give our children a quality [...]

Dennis’ Tree

By | July 24th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

On July 14, 1984, Dennis Crosby Fowler Jr. passed away after a tragic accident at his summer job. He was only 14. Dennis’ death shook the entire community of Gethsemane UMC, now the Gethsemane Campus of St. Luke’s. Current members remember coaching his baseball team and mentoring him in the youth group. A framed picture of Dennis’ sneakers, with the phrase “Jesus is Lord” inscribed in pen on the soles, hangs in the Gethsemane education wing. It’s as if Dennis lives on at Gethsemane. His memory lives on here, like he’s still sitting in the pews on Sunday morning. [...]

Hey! Where Did It Go?

By | July 17th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

If you noticed that the prayer tree was not in the hall as you came into church today, you would not be alone. Moved into storage for the next few months, it will reappear in the Fellowship Walk, and will continue to serve as a witness for prayers of the people. More than 10,000 leaves have been placed on the tree since it was “planted” last fall. Many are requests, and as time has passed, more answered prayers have appeared. Each leaf is prayed for by the prayer team and then placed on the tree. On moving day, a [...]

A Way to Say Thank You

By | July 10th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Corey Sumner It’s been said before… when you need to feel better, give back. When my mom passed away in January, I was in serious need of giving. Not just because it is a wonderful way to step outside of everything you are going through, but I also felt like it was a way for me to thank the many people who loved and cared for me and my family during that time. Through the entire seven weeks my mom was in the hospital, I was consistently touched by all the healthcare staff, including doctors and nurses who [...]

Forever Friends

By | July 3rd, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Noralyn Carpenter One of the sweetest parts of my postion at St. Luke’s is working with new parents to schedule their babies’ baptisms in worship. This became sweet indeed on June 12, when my own granddaughter, Vivian Gray Warner, was baptized here. Among those who stood with us for this special day were many friends from First United Methodist-Bryan, where my daughter Susie grew up. FUMC-Bryan was indeed the village that reared my child. And there was no question that they would be with us for this special day. First there were Anne and Ginn Black and [...]

You Were Right!

By | June 26th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Karen McCarver Carlos bounded out of the classroom, a huge smile on his face to meet his new mentor, Jon Norman. The year was 2007, and Carlos was an outgoing fourth grade student at Briarmeadow who had been referred by his teacher to KIDS HOPE. Jon’s challenge was to help this child focus, improve in reading and math, and more than anything to build a trusting, nurturing relationship with Carlos. Over the next two years a deep bond developed as they studied, played games, shot hoops together and talked about their lives. Jon recalls Carlos’ fifth grade [...]

Dinner’s At Five

By | June 19th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Adrienne McGee Houston’s “Tax Day Flood” wrecked my neighborhood—we were officially the hardest hit in Harris County. And, since we’re right next to Addick’s Reservoir, the water stayed. Every day, we walked around to see where the high water line was, which streets were still barricaded and who was still flooded. One week later, we were checking out one of the worst-hit corners, and it was awful. Houses still had water in them, a week after the rains. Front yards were full of what, a week before, had been homes. While exploring, our eyes were caught by [...]
