Dear St. Luke Community,

I want to give another big THANK YOU to all those who brought our Pentecost service to life:

  • Thank you to the amazing Worship Committee for all the decorations and balloons.
  • Thank you to the musicians and liturgist for leading the joyful celebration. 
  • Thank you to all of you who participating in bring the scripture to life by throwing balloons in the air, waving pom poms in the air, and making noise like you had drunk too much sweetie. (Acts 2)



I also want to say thank you to all those who showed up this morning to help Sanzuma pack food bags for the community. We packed 100 bags with fresh veggies and had a lot of laughs while doing it.


This Sunday is Trinity Sunday and we will, once again, talk about the Spirit of God.  Carolina from Redwood High School will be joining us to talk about the Marin Flag Project.  I look forward to seeing you there as we continue to practice being prophetic and listen to the prophets among us.

Peace be with you,
Pastor Andrew

Dear St. Luke Community,

Join us on Sunday, dressed in red, for our Pentecost Celebration!  We will be making a joyful noise as we welcome back Paul Gaffney and Ashley Pogue as our musical guests.  In difficult times it helps to join together, to laugh, to cry, and to sing of God’s enduring love.

As you may know, Friday (6/3/22) begins Gun Violence Awareness Weekend.  After the news from the last three weeks, many of us are angered and grief-stricken.  Last Sunday we had a moment to lament for all those killed by guns in our nation.  As we move from thoughts and prayers to action, I wanted to share two resources for you to pursue:

As we continue to move forward as a community be gentle with yourself.  And, again, if you would like to talk or vent your frustrations, feel free to reach out to me via phone (831.207.7356) or email ( ). 

Peace be with you,
Pastor Andrew

Dear St. Luke Community,

This week we come to the end of our series on Creation.  We spent time over the last month considering how we can be better stewards of God’s world.  We end the series by looking at Psalm 104.  A beautiful psalm poetically depicts creation.  Reading it and listening to the sounds of nature reminds me that all creation sings of God’s Glory.  And this week, that song was abruptly interrupted by the sound of gunshots in Uvalde, Texas. Nature’s song is overwhelmed by the wails of families and friends whose children were slain.  In this difficult time, I turn to another psalm, Psalm 13: 

 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I take counsel in my soul
    and have sorrow in my heart all the day?

This psalm of lament provides me the words to express what is hard to articulate.  These questions remind me that I can express my anger and grief to God.  Gun violence continues to shape our reality, and there seems to be no end.  And, this psalm of lament ends with these words:

 But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
    my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
    because the Lord has dealt bountifully with me.

This Sunday we will come together for worship.  We will rejoice in God’s steadfast love and sing of God’s creation.  And we will take time to cry out to God, “How long?” We will lift up prayers and laments for all those who have lost their lives to gun violence in the last two weeks. 

Be gentle with yourself this week.  If you would like to talk or vent, feel free to reach out to me via phone (831.207.7356) or email ( ). 

Peace be with you,
Pastor Andrew
