Sunday October 28, 2018
Dear St Luke Community,
What makes you well? What do you turn to when things are falling apart? If we went around the room, each of us would have a different list of answers.
In this Sunday’s scripture, Jesus turns to the blind man tells him his faith has made him well, and the man’s vision is restored. Is our faith making us well?
At St. Luke we understand faith as a verb. That “in the doing” of our faith we practice loving and serving others as we understand Christ to have loved and served others; through compassion, inclusion, acceptance, and understanding.
Is that what makes us well? Can we practice loving others as a way of making all well with our soul? Expressing love as a faith-based community is a wonderful place to grow firm foundations for the shaky ground and challenges life brings.
Our two greatest commandments go hand in hand. Love God, love others. In an uncertain world filled with people taking sides, we celebrate the one place in our lives where party lines are erased and the political divide takes a back seat to what unites us. For one hour each Sunday, we worship a God who calls for us to love above all else.
They tell me churches all over the world are declining, but I tell you that never before in my lifetime, have I witnessed a greater need for what the church has to offer through the unity of all God’s children in love.
See you Sunday,
