Our Quest for Faithful Presence

Dear St Luke’s,

Earlier this week you likely received an email from our “St Luke’s Communications Task Force” inviting you to weigh in on the church’s ability to get information to you in timely, and effective manner, and in a modality that works for you.  The survey takes just a few moments to complete and we’re hoping it will help us support our community and facilitate an ever-deepening sense of belonging and interconnection.

Here is the link to the Communications Survey.  Again, it would be so appreciated if you could take a moment to let your voice be heard by responding to these questions.

You may remember, that in January St Luke’s Board of Trustees initiated a handful of short-term working groups to assess and explore ways of strengthening various realms of our shared life.  Small groups of parishioners from St Luke’s are actively looking at our bylaws, technology/tech needs, staffing for the future, events, and this group is exploring how St Luke’s communicates to its members and presents our collective story and mission to the world through our website and social media, eNews and such.

Of course, communication is not just from St Luke’s to you, but from you to St Luke’s.  This survey is just one of the avenues for hearing your voice.  You have our wonderful board and group of elders who are available to you, our prayer and care team, you can call or email our church’s office, reach out to our one of our staff members, or to me as pastor.  You matter!  Your ideas, imagination, and what’s on your heart matter.

I want to say a special thanks to Liz Callahan, Margaret Nicoll, and Courtney Bailey who have been so thoughtfully guiding this process. These are people whose love of God is being expressed through their passion for St Luke’s and are giving of themselves to make our communication even more purposeful and effective… Thank you!

I’ll see you on Sunday.  Remember, God delights in you, and so does our community of faith!  You are not alone.

Peace, dwight
