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 [...]

Seeds Do Sprout by Sid Davis

By | June 12th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|1 Comment

There are stories that have a place in my memory like a painting in a gallery, and this one has earned a place of prominence. I tell parents and singers as often as I can that through our youth choir, Pure Sound, we are building a soundtrack in their heads, so when life gets hard—and it will, if it hasn’t already—this music and theology will help them through tough times. Years ago, Phillip Storey graduated a year early from Episcopal High School and went to spend a year with a family in South America where he could hone his Spanish [...]

How Far Can Your Dollar Go?

By | June 5th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

A single dollar doesn’t get you much today. You can’t even buy a cup of coffee or a gallon of gas with a buck. But when all our singles are combined, we have some buying power. During the month of June, St. Luke’s will revive one of our traditions and dedicate the $1 bills from the offering to benefit a community partner. “Good for a Guitar” is a 10-week summer program for 6-12 grade students attending the youth program at Wesley Community Center. In 2015, 16 students completed the inaugural program that teaches guitar fundamentals to students without access to affordable instruction. Research shows that there are many [...]

How God Can Use Any Platform to Glorify His Name

By | May 29th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

Candace Payne went mega-viral overnight as the “Chewbacca Mask” lady who had us all keeling over in uncontrollable laughter. In five days, it became the most popular video on the Facebook live platform. In case you’re not one of the 150 million people who’s witnessed this hysterical masterpiece, allow me to indulge you: Google “Chewbacca mask lady.” https://youtu.be/Ji1XFQa2Bhs Here is the best part—Candace is not just another funny lady looking to use her 10 minutes of fame to gain more popularity for herself. She has a higher purpose: to serve God. America’s latest Internet sensation is also a worship [...]

Pick Me! Pick Me!

By Monica Griffin In a small town, word gets around quickly—especially hard news. I had just finished performing in the musical Annie, and the man who played FDR to my Grace was diagnosed with leukemia. It was the first time that I knew someone who had a devastating illness whom I could potentially help. I signed up with the stem cell marrow registry. Due to the lack of a match, approximately 70% of all patients needing stem cell and bone marrow transplants must find a donor who is outside of their family. And such is the case now [...]

So God Made A Mother

By | May 8th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

So God Made a Mother Inspired by Paul Harvey’s 1978 ‘So God Made a Farmer’ Speech And on the sixth day, God looked down on Adam in his planned paradise and said, “I need a nurturer.” So God made a mother. God said, “I need someone who feels deeply and loves fiercely, whose tears flow just as abundantly as their laughter, whose heart is as warm as their ability to guide and set limits is strong. I need someone whose influence on those that they nurture is eternal.” So God made a mother. God said “I need someone who [...]

The Class of 2016

By | May 1st, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Katie Garoni How have four years gone by so quickly? Let’s start by saying I am not ready for them to go. It has truly been an honor and a pleasure to spend the last four years with such an amazing group of young high school women, who take time out of their insanely busy lives to sit down and just be with us for a few hours each week. Though some of them might have been prompted by their parents to attend in the beginning, these students are the ones who made the decision, the effort and [...]

Thou Art With Me

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:12 by Susan Dunwoody Sitting in the doctor’s office with my husband and children, together we received the diagnosis. Ovarian cancer. The room stood still as I went from being in perfect health to the shock of cancer. I was shaken to the depth of my soul. I said to the Lord, “Are you sure you have the right person here? Are you [...]

All the Good, All the Bad

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

by Andrew Howard, Class of 2018 I was waiting for my prayers to be answered. I was praying for a sign from God to help me really know that, without a doubt, he was real. And that day came during Fall Retreat when God shot me with all the truth of all the ways that he had been in my life. Maybe he made me to talk to people who really need his grace and forgiveness. I run track—barefoot, and when asked why, I say that God created us naked and that is our best form. Everyone has God [...]
