Dear St. Luke’s Family and Friends,
Recognizing that a strong and healthy community of faith must be diverse in every possible way, we want to clearly state that this St. Luke’s community is
in our mission.
We all must acknowledge that racism and oppression bring hurt, pain and sadness to our St. Luke’s community. And, knowing our St. Luke’s community, we are called now more than ever to live into our mission, stated clearly as follows:
“To be a beacon of Christ’s love by welcoming all as God’s own, nurturing our parish in faith with joy, and striving for justice and reconciliation.”
Striving for justice and reconciliation calls the St. Luke’s community to Learn, Pray, and Act.
As leaders of St. Luke’s, we are committed to bringing to this community a place for ALL to Learn, Pray, and Act. Examples include the recent Lament with Catherine Meeks and Ed Bacon, our rich liturgical worship experience, offerings of opportunities through our Faith and Advocacy Network, along with the countless years and time spent serving God’s people through our campus ministries and outreach programs.
We must continue to reach out to one another and the community at large, to share love, grace and our resources with abandon.
May the grace and peace of Christ be with you all.
