Dear St. Luke Community,
CS Lewis once wrote, Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.
It’s a fitting quote for the Book of Acts. The Apostles are retelling the miracles of Jesus through acts of their own. They’re witnessing for and to the world the acts of God who empowers them through the Holy Spirit to take the miracle of the risen Christ into the world. That’s our call. In small and big ways. In ordinary and extraordinary acts, simply put, we are called to spread love. And just as those first apostles, we trust that the love we share will have a lingering and infectious affect on those we love.
There are people in our lives who nurtured our faith. There are those who just plain loved us into being who we are. Faith and love are not separate things in this way. Both bring us closer to God and closer to being who God created us to be. The people who nurture us give us mothering and fathering kind of love. The kind of love that says, no matter what, I will always love you, I will always want what’s best for you, I will always hope that whatever else you do, you trust in that love.
As we celebrate that kind of love this Sunday in the witnessing of small letter miracles, we’ll hear from Mary Dill, Janet Abrahamson and myself on the ways our mothers influenced us through their own love. As we remember and witness, we renew our own commitment to do the same for those around us. And most of all, we remember together that all of this lives in the large letter miracle that brings a depth of meaning to the words, all of this we do in the name of the Risen One, Jesus the Christ.
See you Sunday,
