A Message from Our Pastor
"History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again."
 --Maya Angelou, American poet and activist
 
I think most of us enjoy history and feel like we know the basic history of our country. I also count myself as a bit of a history buff, and enjoy learning about our southern history. Our Southeastern Synod sponsored a day, in Montgomery, AL., at the new "Legacy Museum, From Slavery to Mass Incarceration." This museum was an eye opener for me. It gave a detailed history of African Americans in America. While most of us are familiar with the horrors of slavery, what is not often known, is that the prison system in our country became the new slavery system after slavery was abolished. I was shocked to learn that African American men could be arrested in Alabama for just standing on a street corner. Once arrested they were forced to work in the north Alabama coal mines with no wages paid. Today, we learned that people of color are six times more likely to be charged and given a longer sentence than a white person. It is easy to see that today, reforming sentencing guidelines and prisons is needed in our country.

A second museum we visited is an outdoor museum, " The National Memorial for Peace and Justice." This is the nation's first memorial dedicated to the legacy of enslaved black people, and people terrorized by lynching. This large open air museum educates us on the terrorism of lynching in our country. Large metal rectangle boxes hang from the ceiling, and on each is the name of a county and those lynched in that county until 1950. The hope is that as we remember and learn; we can hope and work for a better and more just country. We can demand a more just legal system, and we can have the courage to speak and protect those who are unjustly persecuted in our county.

As people of faith, we believe that God is on the side of the vulnerable. We believe that God is a God of justice, mercy and forgiveness. While we cannot stop what happened in the past, we can learn from it, and educate ourselves on the legacy of these past sins.

I highly recommend the book, "Just Mercy" by Brian Stevenson. Mr. Stevenson is a Harvard educated lawyer working to bring prison reform and sentencing reform to Alabama. I would love to have a discussion of the book this summer during the Sunday School hour.

Please join me.

Pastor Cliff
Worship Committee News
A great, big, huge thank you to all who helped make Lent, Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter so meaningful and beautiful for all of us at St.Luke!  There is a lot of behind the scenes preparation that goes on which makes it appear that things just happen to make it all come together. Those who prepare do it for the love of serving and with the hope all will rejoice in the risen Savior!  We are truly blessed by so many who serve so willing in so many ways.


Grateful Sermon Series...
Pastor Cliff is exploring a series of teaching on being grateful.  Last week our assignment was "Thanks-Living" - being thankful for being alive.  Sunday he will share some "Habits of Gratitude".
Purchase your book Grateful by Diana Butler Bass to help us untangle our conflicting understandings of gratitude and set the table for a renewed practice of giving thanks.

Upcoming Events...
May 5     Senior Bible presentation and Sunday School Teacher
Appreciation
May 12   First Communion and Mother's Day
May 19   Confirmation Sunday/ Affirmation of Baptism  (Worship
meeting after service
May 26   Memorial Day Weekend, Church picnic


Music News...
There are opportunities this summer for the Saints to offer their
musical talents for either a prelude or offering.  If you are interested please email Pat Conway gpconway70@att.net for further information
Jacob Allen will be participating in summer theatre.  Break a leg Jake! We know you will be great! However, be assured we will be very happy when you return!

Help Wanted...
We could use some additional altar guild good stewards.  These are the people who prepare the altar for communion each Sunday.  It is not difficult and you would be trained. We would love to have some of our youth consider serving in this capacity.  Karen McCracken serves as the head of Altar Guild and would be happy to speak with you.

We also need a couple more Offering Counters too.  We typically meet on Monday mornings at 9am to count the previous day's offering.  Contact Gary Conway if you'd be interested in helping!

Good Steward Scheduler needed...  
The weekly Good Stewards engage Saints of all ages in Seeking God and Serving Others.  Each month a schedule is developed sometime around the 20th of the prior month.  It takes about 3 to 4 hours to develop this schedule.  St. Luke is in need of a new person to develop this schedule as the current scheduler will not be able to after this summer.  If you are interested and wish to find out more please contact Gary Conway at gconway47@outlook.com  or call me at 901 493-3095.  

_____________________________________________________
God, our hearts break for those killed in the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka, New Zealand,  Pittsburgh, California, and North Carolina. 
The world reels from this violence.
Love has no room for violence and killing. 
In fact, Love repudiates violence.
As Christ on the cross has shamed and rebuked death and violence,
So we rebuke these violent attacks,
Instead proclaiming a gospel of peace
And an ethic of reconciling Love.
We pray for the families of the deceased,
That their hearts may draw ever closer to Love. 
We pray for the spiritual communities dealing with the aftermath,
That they may be good homes for healing.
And we pray and stand in word and action against religious bigotry,
Offering up Love's redeeming alternative.
Let us each, in our hearts, cultivate peace,
Each day as we practice prayer,
Engage in service,
Do justice and mercy,
And heed the voices of the suffering oppressed.
Oh God, help us to be Love.
In Love there is no Other. 
There is only One.
Amen
Thanks author Fran Pratt.

Message From Our Council President
Greetings St. Luke Saints,

The old saying that time flies holds true - Lent has come and gone, and we are enjoying the Easter season celebration of Christ's victory over death. Alleluia, He Has Risen! He Has Risen Indeed!! Alleluia!!

In March I wrote to you concerning the financial status of St. Luke. Many of you responded very generously by increasing your monetary support and we are deeply appreciative of the sacrifices that were made to do this. We know the strong commitment we all have to the Great Commission and financial stability allows St. Luke to exist not just for those that are already members but to bring all our Brothers and Sisters to the Love that is Christ.

To continue to shore up our financial situation Council researched re-amortizing our mortgage with the Synod. As discussed during the Congregational meeting and unanimously passed by the Saints, the re-amortization allows us to continue to pay down our principal but reduce our monthly payments from over $3,000 to under $800 without changing our interest rate. Since there are no pre-payment penalties, we can retire the mortgage at any time, freeing up that money towards our ministries. This goal is in sight!!

Perhaps that day will come in conjunction with St. Luke's 35 anniversary that we will celebrate later this year. As Pastor indicated in the Congregational meeting, Pastor Hood will preach in conjunction with this still-to-be-planned celebration. We are looking for a few Saints to form a planning team for that event and all ideas are welcome. Please speak to a member of the Executive Committee if you would like to participate.

May will be a busy month at St. Luke, so take a deep breath and hold on as we:
  • Celebrate our high school and college graduates, thank our dedicated Sunday School teachers and receive new members on May 5
  • Celebrate 1st Communion for our Little Saints and Honor our Mothers with a brunch after service on May 12
  • Celebrate Confirmation on May 19
  • And finally wrap up the month with our annual church picnic after service on May 26.
You can't say the Saints let any grass grow under our feet!!

Peace and God's Blessing's to all.

In His Service

Baptisms
We've had three Baptisms at St. Luke in the past month, and will have three more this Sunday.  Praise God for his Spirit working among us.


Charlotte Olivia Hemphill received the sacrament of Holy Baptism on Easter Sunday, April 21.  Parents are Parker and Heather LaPorte Hemphill, and godparents are Tyrel & Jodi Witcher.




Jaxon Lee Owens and Gemma Diane Sage 
received the sacrament of Holy Communion on April 28th.  They are the children of Ashlee Nichole Sage, and godparents are Donna Meili and Brian Rogers.



The Children  Journey through Holy Week!
The Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders went on a biblical journey during the 40 days of Lent.  We greeted Jesus when He entered Jerusalem and followed Him to the Temple. Before we helped prepare the Passover Meal Jesus served by washing our feet.  Then we had a special "Last Supper" with our Lord before we went to the Garden to pray. We witnessed Jesus' arrest, his trial and His Crucifixion. We even nailed our own sins onto the cross. As sad as it was to see our Lord die, we know He rose from the dead Easter Sunday! Our sins had been forgiven!! Hallelujah!!

































The Thursday Women's Bible Study Group 
meets on Thursdays at 1:30. We are studying the book, Listening to God. Please join us in the Narthex for the study of God's word and great fellowship!    

Tuesday Ladies' Bible Study
Join us on Tuesday mornings at 10 am.  We are currently studying a study by Jennifer Rothschild,  Walking by Faith: Lessons Learned in the Dark.   The study contrasts the evidences of walking by faith and walking by sight and encourages participants to take risks and give God control. Led by Tanya Bolkcom. 


The Women's Sunday School Class
The women's class is studying "Discerning the Voice of God" by Priscilla Shirer. It's not too late to join them Sunday mornings at 9am! See Jennifer Carkeet for more information (discipleship@stlukememphis.org).




A Real Life need was met:     "Although my needs changed as I went from wife to caregiver to widow, my Stephen Minister's love and support remained a constant. She was there at every stage of my journey, helping me through some of the most difficult moments of my life-so I could begin to heal."  Susan


Private Prayer Every Sunday
Sometimes it is good to be able to share our prayer concerns with another Christian. That's what the after-service Prayer Room (#111, next to the nursery) is all about. If you want to share a prayer concern for yourself or someone you love, there will be a Stephen Minister waiting for you! 

 Remember Christ said, 
     "For where two or three gather in my name, 
      there am I with  them."  
                                                                     Matt. 18:20

This year we invite  you or someone you know to bring a car or motorcycle to the picnic to show case. If you have a hobby or skill restoring cars or you just own a vintage or fun sports car, bring it out and let the kids of all ages have a look. Let's see what you have in that big garage of yours! I bet others would like to share in the joy of seeing cars and motorcycles. Just park them in designated space by the play ground on Church Picnic Sunday, May 26. Who has the oldest car, the fastest, the most classic? Trucks are included!


We Bought a Cow!!!
Thank you for giving so generously to our Lenton offerings.  We had a total of $2077 given, and enough to purchase a cow for someone in need!  


Habitat for Humanity Update
A letter received recently by Pastor Cliff:

"I wanted to reach out to both of you to share some good news related to a homeowner St. Luke worked with nearly 20 years ago. We are happy to share that Ywvomming Clayton, who built her home on Walnut Street in 2000, has paid off her Habitat home loan. In fact, she paid it off nearly a year early!
 
We are so grateful for the longtime support of St. Luke Lutheran Church and your congregants. Because of you, homeowners like Ywvomming now have a decent place to live. We look forward to continuing our work together this year and in the years to come.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!"

Mikah Meyers completed his quest to visit all National Park sites. We were blessed to meet Mikah when he sang at St. Luke and shared his story.
Mikah is the son of a Lutheran pastor, raised in Nebraska, and attended graduate school at the University of Memphis. He is now featured in many national news stories for his accomplishments.

T-2 Ministry
Our Team meets with ELCA Liasion Wayne Fell on Sunday, 5/5. We will be working discussing with him the written plans that each ministry unit  (discipleship, evangelism/ outreach, fellowship, stewardship, social and worship)  has assembled which will be used  to direct the ministry activities of each unit. The goal is to be both "formal" and "intentional" about what is next for each Committee in order to keep the focus on moving forward as a missional church and not to slip into the trap of focusing inward. The outcome of this meeting will be shared with Council at their June meeting. 

In Christ,
Paul Wright

Through it all we want you to take Jesus with you. Included in your kit will be a Flat Jesus. This summer, let's send Flat Jesus to every corner of the world! Let Flat Jesus be a reminder of Jesus's real presence in every place we find ourselves and as a fun reminder to help others encounter God. Take Flat Jesus with you on all of your summer adventures and take your picture with him. Share the pictures on our Facebook page (@StLukeMemphis) using the hashtag #StLukeELCAFlatJesus or email them to  jennifer@stlukememphis.org .

We will keep track of all the places Flat Jesus visits on our map on the SLY bulletin board.
