From the Rector

Happy New Year to you! I pray your Christmas and New Year’s Day were filled with joy. Advent and Christmas at St. Luke’s were truly inspiring. From the candlelit Lessons & Carols service to the Advent Wreath Party; from adopting 225 Christmas Angel children to the joy and wonder of our own Children’s Christmas Pageant; it was a beautiful December. Christmas Eve & Christmas Day at St. Luke’s were truly holy. Almost 1,200 people worshipped Christ our newborn King, surrounded by beautiful poinsettias and inspiring music. Many, many, thanks to everyone who made December such a special month at St. Luke’s. 2017 is here! For several years now we have used an annual theme to help focus our ministries, our formation, and our life as a parish family. Our theme for 2017 is

Living Generously. Generosity is an abiding characteristic of God Almighty. Our God is incredibly generous to us. God gives in great abundance. Everything we have is a gift to us from God. Jesus revealed the generous nature of God the Father when he turned water to wine at a wedding in Cana of Galilee (John 2: 1-11), and when he fed 5,000 on the shores of the Sea of Galilee (the only miracle story told in all 4 Gospels). But Jesus most clearly revealed the generosity of God to us by both coming among us, and by stretching out his arms of love on the cross for us. We are disciples of Jesus Christ, and we are called to live like him. We are called to live generously. What does that look like? What would it look like for you to live life more generously? Holy Scripture gives us many examples to guide us in living generously. Here are some examples: Followers of Jesus have generous hearts: In the Acts of the Apostles, St. Luke describes the early Christians as a community of people who were very aware of, and very thankful for, the blessings of God in their daily lives. He wrote, “Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts.” (Acts 2:46) Increasing our awareness of God’s generous blessings to us may be the beginning of living generously. Followers of Jesus practice generous hospitality: In the Acts of the Apostles, we find a description of how Paul and his traveling companions were taken in by a generous host. Acts 28:7 reads, “There was an estate nearby that belonged to Publius, the chief official of the island. He welcomed us to his home and showed us generous hospitality for three days.” How might you and I practice generous hospitality in our homes? In our church? Followers of Jesus are generous with forgiveness. Because God is so generous in forgiving our sins, so we are called to forgive lavishly. Jesus commands us to forgive as many as 70 times 7 times (Matt. 28:2). And, Jesus taught us to pray, “forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” How might we be more generous, and more quick, to forgive those who have offended or hurt us? Followers of Jesus are generous to the poor. Both the Old and New Testaments are filled with examples of how living generously includes giving to the poor. “A generous person will prosper. Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25) Proverbs 22:9 reads, “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.” Followers of Jesus are generous to God. 2 Chronicles 31 describes all the people of Israel giving from their various gifts and talents to decorate and support the temple. Jesus taught, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. (Luke 6:38)


During 2017, we will have plenty of time to reflect upon the theme of Living Generously. Whether it is being generous to the poor or to the work of God in the Church, or practicing generous hospitality or generous forgiveness, by the end of 2017 my prayer is that each one of us will have grown to be more like our God who is so, so generous with his love for us. Blessings to you, and to St. Luke’s Church & School, as we begin a new year. Peace,

THE REV. DAVID G. READ rector@stlukes-sa.net

INCARNATION: Theologically speaking, I think a life of faith in Jesus boils down to John 1:14, where, as the New Living Translation puts it, “The Word became human and made his home among us.” All the words you use about God or about faith need to have some skin, bones, and breath. I followed the path to Ordination because I believe that Sacramental Living says there has to be tangible side to our faith! I look forward to living out the Incarnation with you as we share God’s Love in real ways with the community and world. CHAOS: My wife Erin and I have 3 incredible and incredibly loud boys: Kenny (7), Joseph (5), and Stephen (Very 3). Collectively, we refer to them as Team Chaos! You will no doubt hear them before you see them, but they are a really caring group of boys. Life in our house is chaotic, but its authentic and we do everything we can to embrace the challenges and blessings. I believe God has a similar view of all us: simultaneously beloved and unadulterated chaos! COMMUNITY: For Seminary, I attended the University of the South School of Theology in Sewanee, TN. It was a wonderful experience to live on top of a mountain surrounded by 13,000 acres of forest. The isolation made for a great setting for the study of Theology, but an even better setting for understanding community. My family learned the value of reliance on one another, and love to find ways to live that out now we are back home in Texas. OUTREACH: One of my greatest passions is for outreach. The Old Testament paints a picture of the responsibility we have to use whatever is at our disposal to the benefit of others. Jesus tells us that the answers we are looking for on happiness and purpose can be found when we seek and serve others. Internal Joy comes from external living. COFFEE: I love a good cup of coffee! Not only because chasing our boys is exhausting and I need the pick-me-up to get going… But a good cup of coffee is an experience, and more often than not provides the chance for a meaningful encounter with someone else. I cherish the opportunity to sip a beverage and get to know someone’s story. We are grateful to be on the journey with you, and anxiously await opportunities to get to know you more!

Faithfully,

MK+

From the Assistant to the Rector

It is an honor and a thrill to get to live out the Gospel with the community here at St. Luke’s. Over the last 18 months, we have had a chance to worship with you on Sundays, but to be part of the community full time is a true blessing to our family. As the months and years go on, I know that we will have a chance to get to know each other on a more personal level, but I thought I’d start by introducing myself to you in 5 words:


Over the past 30-45 days the SLEC Vestry Nominating Committee has been meeting and discussing the numerous candidates that have been recommended. We are extremely grateful to everyone that provided us with names and guidance as we sorted through the candidates. All of them brought some level of expertise and guidance to SLEC so it was a difficult process. Members of the Nominating Committee were: Reid Harrell, Michael Seiferth, Tyler Mercer, Charles John, Carol McGanity, Nancy Avellar, Mac White, Suzette Harris and David Cotton. The Committee met a total of 5 times to vet and discuss candidates, qualifications, commitment to SLEC and willingness to serve. As a result, the Nominating Committee is pleased to present to the SLEC parish the following five individuals who have been selected and agreed to stand for election to the vestry.

This Year in Music

Looking back over 2016 shows a good and active year for the music program. The choir sang six Choral Evensongs, plus Advent Lessons & Carols, Requiem, etc., in addition to morning services, and we presented a concert in the church of Schubert’s Winterreise, the Youth Choir gave a performance of Godspell, and on Good Friday there was a performance of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater. In July we were Choir-in-Residence at the National Cathedral for a week, which was a superb opportunity to fill in for their choir and to sing in a glorious space. So much history has taken place there, plus DC has its own special feeling. We sang a large amount of repertoire to a very high standard and grew as a musical body. The organ was out all of last year up in Connecticut being rebuilt and restored by the Odell Organ Company. I had the opportunity to visit in December and see the work in progress. There were parts of the organ all over the shop. New pipes were being fabricated, old ones were being mended. We were given three new stops as the company wanted to round out the specification. The organ will come back to the church in early January and reconstruction and voicing will take place throughout January and February. Future plans include the re-dedication of the organ and adding a number of concerts to our program. These will feature the organ, choir, solo recitals by professional musicians, featured artists, collaboration with other groups, plus musical bodies that use our space. Future, future plans are a booking for St. Luke’s Choir to sing in-residence at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in July 2018. [Incidentally, a former chorister of mine from Northampton became the Assistant Director of Music at St. George’s. One day the queen walked by while he was practicing and asked him why there was a TV monitor on the organ. He said it was so he could watch the conductor; the queen replied, “In my day we used to rely on mirrors!” I just wrote a note to the choir reminding them of times for Christmas Eve. I also called us a family because of how we relate to each other. We spend a lot of time together, we celebrate joys and grief, we are bound by music and worship. The experiences we have and create are something that transforms us all, and in doing so our music takes on a sacramental nature. And that’s our goal for the coming year, et al.

The Green Door is a many-layered ministry. It provides the community with gently used housewares and clothing at affordable prices. Consigners can earn a little income. Volunteers minister to each other and our customers, forming multi-generational friendships. Donated items that do not sell are given to other charitable organizations. And the Green Door donates from its profits to other charities as well as tithes to the church. In 2015, The Green Door awarded gifts totaling $65,000 to local, state, and world ministries. The 2016 gifts are expected to be larger. Please consider consigning your gently used items, donating, or volunteering at The Green Door. We are open Tues through Sat. 10:00 until 1:00. You can call Cynthia at the store with any questions, (210)-826-7111.

When I first arrived, I immediately felt welcomed even though it probably helped that I go to youth group at the same church that Happening was taking place. My favorite part though, was how close our “small family” became, because we spent most of our time together. By the end of the weekend, I felt like I could share anything with my “small family”. Another activity that I liked was the carrot toss. I received many letters from my friends and family and I've never felt more loved. It was such an amazing experience and I cannot wait to go to His Love.

Alexis Guerrero St. Luke's Youth

Happening From a Youth P erspective

At my church youth group my friends kept bugging me about going to Happening, a lock in at my local church because they said it was life changing and that it’s just something that I need to experience. When I would ask what exactly goes on at Happening, they would just say “you’ll have to see for yourself” or “it’s a surprise!”. I was very excited but also little nervous for what they had planned. Now that I've been to Happening I know that my friends knew what they were talking about.

The Green Door

The Women’s Auxiliary of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church started the Green Door Thrift Shop on April 13, 1953. They are now known as The Women of St. Luke’s or WOSL. The first shop was in a rented space and was staffed by 10 female volunteers. Today, the Green Door operates at 1030 Nacogdoches Road on a property owned by the church. Sixty plus male and female volunteers and two paid employees efficiently run the store. In the first year profits were $3000. The profits for 2016 exceeded $78,000.


3 New Ministries

In November, St. Luke’s Church quietly launched 3 new outreach ministries: A “Little Library,” a “Little Food Pantry,” and a Prayer Box. These beautiful “houses” were made by Chuck and Susie Bush, and have been mounted on posts where you enter St. Luke’s south parking area from Jones Maltsberger Road. The principle behind these ministries is that they are hosted by the St. Luke’s community, and serve the community at large. The “Little Library” is a miniature lending library. If you have books to donate, go ahead and add them to the library. If you see a title that you want to read, borrow it, read it, and return it when you are finished. The “Little Pantry” is a miniature food pantry. The directions on it simply say, “If you need a little, take a little. If you’ve got something to share, leave it.” Anyone in need can stop and take some basic, non-perishable food items. Anyone in the congregation should feel free to bring a few cans of food and restock the pantry from time-to-time. On the side of the “Little Pantry” is a mailbox. Paper and pen are provided for anyone who wants to leave prayer requests. Those prayers will be collected weekly and incorporated into the prayers of the parish.
