Stewardship

This is an exciting time in the life of Grace-St. Luke’s as we look eagerly and hopefully for our next rector.  What does grace look like?  Not just a beloved priest or lovely building, it looks like the people of this parish carrying out the work God is calling us to do, day after day, week after week, year after year.  Let’s show our new rector what grace looks like: a loving, generous, and supportive parish.

What does grace look like?

Through changing times, new faces, and life’s complexities, what does grace look like? It looks like the children who sing on the chancel steps and run around Trezevant Hall during coffee hour.

Door of Hope

I have always had a home. No matter where I go or what I do with my life, I have a home. A home is not a house or an apartment. It is not some basic form of shelter or a place to store my things. It is not even a place at all. It is the knowledge that there is somewhere on God’s Creation where I am welcomed and loved unconditionally. Everyone should have that and far too many don't.

Walking in Memphis

August 1st, 2017

I admit that spending five full days wrangling 15 teenagers didn’t exactly feel like I was easing my way into the job, but I can say with certainty that it was the best way to be introduced to both the city of Memphis as well as this fantastic group of students. Guided by our fearless leader, Mary Margaret, we took to the streets of Memphis for the 2nd iteration of a wonderful week of service, learning, and a heap load of fun.
