Valleys and Pastures Ahead: Inside-Out Habits for April 24, 2016 with Dr. Tom Pace

By | April 24th, 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. WE PRAY: A PERSONAL PRAYER Loving God, When I look back over my life, it has been a pretty good road. Lots of wonderful times, wonderful people, wonderful opportunities. I have made some wonderful friends, and served in some wonderful churches. I have laughed a lot, and worked pretty hard, and had the joy of seeing fruit of my labor. And the neatest part of all was that I got to do all of that with you. [...]

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 [...]

Sabbath Rest: Inside-Out Habits for April 17 with Dr. Tom Pace

By | April 17th, 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. WE PRAY: A PERSONAL PRAYER “I am tired. I am weak. I am worn.”  “Sometimes, I feel discouraged, and think my work’s in vain. And then the Holy Spirit, revives my soul again…” “When you’re weary. Feelin’ small…” O God, apparently, I am not the only one who sometimes feels depleted and discouraged, burned out and worn out. The songwriter expresses it so well. When that happens, I don’t feel your joy bubbling up inside me. I need [...]

He Restores My Soul

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

by Reverend Bill Denham Every hospital visit is unique. Different rooms, patients, medical issues, outcomes. One of the things that some special lay men and women do is volunteer to visit hospitalized persons in the Medical Center. These volunteers enter the hospital room knowing that they represent not only St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, but also the healing hands and voice of Jesus the Christ. Before entering a hospital room the volunteer washes his/her hands and, more often than not, offers up a silent prayer, asking God to be with them in this visit. These men and women [...]

A Shepherd to Show the Way: Inside Out Habits for April 10, 2016 with Dr. Tom Pace

By | April 10th, 2016|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace, Uncategorized|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service.   WE PRAY: A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, I need to be led by you. I like to believe that I know right and wrong, but as I grow older, more and more often the decisions seem more difficult. Things don’t seem as black and white, and I am more often than not ambivalent about decisions in front of me. I need a shepherd to guide me, God. And even when I know what is right, I am not always able [...]

He Will Provide

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

by Patrick Long-Quian When I started senior year in high school, the number one thing people told me was to get my college applications finished early. I tried, but that just didn’t happen. The stress started piling up; the stress of deciding what I was going to do for the rest of my life at the age of 18, the stress of how I was going to pay for this monumental step in my education and life. In the fall of 2015 my voice teacher told me that someone from a music school was coming to Houston for [...]

Prayers: The Real Work: Inside-Out Habits for April 3, 2016 with Dr. Tom Pace

By | April 3rd, 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.   WE PRAY: A PERSONAL PRAYER O God, In the days after Easter, the disciples huddled in that same upper room in Jerusalem, and there they prayed. They waited and prayed to be clothed with power from on high. Instead, O God, I find myself working and fretting, worrying and wondering and wandering. Yes, you know I am praying, too. But somehow, my prayers feel different from those prayers of the disciples. Too often, I think that the important stuff is the “real [...]

A Verbal Three-Leaf Clover

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

by Rev. Bill Denham I remember learning my ABC’s in kindergarten. I remember learning my times tables, with flash cards, in the 3rd grade. I don’t remember learning any creeds. I don’t remember learning any because I was not reared in a church which had them. I am glad that each of my children has learned and that each of my grandchildren will learn the Apostles’ Creed. We are blessed that we have creeds, several of them in fact. The one we say most often is the Apostles’ Creed. Repetition is key in learning. Repeating over and over [...]

We Make Friends!

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

When Deanna Wilson retired at 55, she and her husband Dick considered participating in Mainstreamers programs but thought they might be too young. Yet they kept seeing the St Luke’s bus at fun restaurants and reconsidered. “These people were so much older, and we didn’t really belong there, but we want to go to fun restaurants on the bus too!” And so began 21 years of fun with the senior adult program at St. Luke’s. They were indeed some of the youngest people onboard the bus, but sort of loved that! Mainstreamers programs provided them with excellent speakers and [...]
