Life With Father

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:46-05:00 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 [...]

Living Out Faith: Inside Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for September 25, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:14-05:00 September 25th, 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 Amazing God, There have been times I haven’t lived my faith so well, but you were always there holding me up, loving me, inviting me to love you back. There were times I didn’t pray or read my Bible at all, and you still were there loving me. There have been times I have done things that were just plain wrong, hurtful to others, against everything I believe in. You were still there loving me. There are days [...]

A Mother’s Story

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:16-05:00 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 [...]

A Conversation with Nick and Nathan

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:18-05:00 September 18th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by: Tyler Neely While I had grown up saying I was a Christian, I never actually knew Jesus or recognized that he was someone who I could have a relationship with until my senior year of high school. The first time that I learned who Jesus was, and heard that he was more than some archaic religious icon that my grandparents made me learn about, was when two of my best friends, Nick and Nathan, sat me down one night and shared their experience and faith with me. Young Life had just recently started at my school and [...]

Side by Side with Each Other: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for September 18, 2016

By | 2017-03-28T14:56:19-05:00 September 18th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|2 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, I’m to preach this week on talking to our families about faith. That feels like asking Hakeem Olajuwon to talk about what it is like to be short. I don’t know how to do it. I don’t talk to my kids or my parents or even my wife about it very much. I preach it on Sundays, and give my whole heart to following you all the time, but it is hardest [...]

Prayer and Peace: Inside Out Habits with Dr. Pace June 12

By | 2017-03-28T14:57:07-05:00 June 12th, 2016|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 love and peace, Sometimes, an evil spirit comes over me, God, just like one came over King Saul. Sometimes it is depression, or jealousy, or rage, or out of control ambition, or greed, or snarkiness, or all sorts of other spirits. I refuse to give in to those spirits, God. I won’t let them take me over completely. I turn to you, the only one who can rescue me from such a spirit. [...]

How Far Can Your Dollar Go?

By | 2017-03-28T14:57:09-05:00 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 [...]

So God Made A Mother

By | 2017-03-28T14:57:27-05:00 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 | 2017-03-28T14:57:32-05:00 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 [...]
