Impact Sunday- God at work in me

2019-09-27T09:22:32-05:00September 27th, 2019|Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|Comments Off on Impact Sunday- God at work in me

A PERSONAL PRAYER God of possibilities, Sometimes, because I am afraid I cannot do enough, I choose instead to do nothing. Because I count on my own power, my own strength, my own wisdom, my own know-how, I wither in the face of the challenges of the world, and hunker down to stay in my comfortable world.  But you remind me that it is your power, your strength, your wisdom, your know-how that are available to use for your purposes, and that it is you who is at work in me and through me.  I sell you short, God.  You [...]

It Started with a Small Group, By Amanda Kirkham

2019-09-26T17:02:00-05:00September 26th, 2019|We Tell Our Stories|Comments Off on It Started with a Small Group, By Amanda Kirkham

I am currently a part-time student in my fourth semester (1st year) of seminary at Perkins School of Theology. I chose to answer a quiet calling into seminary with the support of my extended family at St. Luke's. After attending as a visitor to St. Luke's for a few months, I jumped in and signed up for Disciple Bible Study nearly a decade ago. I was introduced to a group of warm, inquisitive, and supportive people open to conversations about the Bible and its context in our lives today. I met many spiritual allies and mentors from this first Bible [...]

I hope all of you are safe from the storms and floods, and that your homes are not damaged. Would you let us know if you are not? We would love to be praying for you and help however we can.

Pot-stirrers

2019-07-05T11:55:51-05:00July 5th, 2019|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|Comments Off on Pot-stirrers

A PERSONAL PRAYER God, Let's stir the pot. Let's shake things up. Let's turn over some temple-tables. Let's make something happen. OK, I know you have been doing that all along, but let's you and I do it together (meaning I will join in this time). God, I thank you today for all those pot-stirrers and thing-shaker-uppers, and temple-table-turners who have been your agents to accomplish your purposes. It takes courage to do that. I thank you for those who come up with the strategies for change. I thank you for those who bear the brunt of social ridicule and [...]

The Truth will set us free

2018-07-06T09:05:54-05:00July 6th, 2018|Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|Comments Off on The Truth will set us free

Our inside-out habits: 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 truth,Everything seems to have a "spin" these days. It seems that if I say the sky is blue or water is wet, there is someone who has another perspective on it. Sadly, I am not different than the spin doctors are. I confess that sometimes, I choose to see things as I want them to be rather than as they are. I hone in on data that supports my [...]
