Dear St. Luke Community,

Come join us on Sunday as we look at the Sabbath rest and creation.  Genesis tells us that on the seventh day of creation, God rested.  How can rest be used to care for the planet?  What is God invited us to do when we rest? During the last two years, we have learned a great deal about resting and taking time to slow down.  At the beginning of the pandemic I came across this poem by Lynn Ungar:

Pandemic
What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now, 
on trying to make the world
different than it is. 
Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.
Center down.
 
And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.)
Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has come clear.)
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.
 
Promise this world your love–
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.

I look forward to rejoining you all this Sunday.

Peace be with you,
Pastor Andrew

Dear St. Luke Community:

Join us this Sunday either in person or online as we continue to examine humanity’s role in caring for God’s creation.  We will welcome back to the pulpit Rev. Dr. Joanne Whitt.  Many know Rev. Joanne as she served as the interim pastor at St. Luke in 2021. Prior to beginning seminary, Joanne practiced as a trial lawyer for 15 years. Currently, she serves on the Zephyr Point Board, and as co-chair of the Committee on Ministry of the Presbytery of the Redwoods.  We look forward to worshiping alongside her this Sunday.

Also, beginning this Sunday I will be taking a week’s long vacation (5/8-5/14).  I will be back with you all on Sunday, May 15, 2022.  While I am away if you have any questions regarding the facilities, please contact Joanne Trifoso at: . Questions regarding worship and online resources contact Beth at: . For pastoral care emergencies contact Rev. Joanne Whitt at:  

Peace be with you all,
Pastor Andrew

Dear St. Luke Community:

This Sunday begins our next worship series, Awake, O My Soul.  Over the coming weeks, we will turn our focus on eco-justice and our relationship with God’s creation.  Additionally, we will use prayers from Phillip Newell’s newest book, Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul.  To begin the series we will look at our relationship to water and God’s call to us to be good stewards of creation.  

There will be visitors helping lead worship this week, including The Sons of the Sea who will be providing beautiful music for us.  Also, we welcome Mike Levin to speak from a Jewish perspective on our responsibility to nature.  In the past, this Sunday has been referred to as Mariners' Sunday, and we will continue this tradition with imagination and creativity.  I look forward to worshiping our Divine Creator together!

As always, please reach out to me via phone (831.207.7356) or email ( ).  I would love to meet with you all individually, so if you have a free afternoon or just want to grab a cup of tea, don’t hesitate to

Peace be with you all
Pastor Andrew
