News from the Wider Episcopal Church
Welcome to St. Luke's Episcopal Church
Check out our new look…
It's official - the Port-a-Potties have arrived. And they're positioned in the most opportune spot - right at the entrance to the building. They certainly make quite a statement, but unfortunately it can't be helped.
At least they say, "We’re moving forward - new bathrooms, new beginnings!"
And it's just for a few short weeks. Our contractor swears he will have the bathrooms finished by the time Preschool starts right after Labor Day. Everything brand spanking new, you're going to love them!
So, word to the wise: Use the bathroom at home before you come to church.
A Message from Fr. Rex…
The Overflowing Tea Cup
Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23
Sometimes our insight into Scripture can be enhanced by hearing a story from another source. On considering today’s Gospel, I have gained a deeper sense of its message through a Zen Buddhist story told about Nan-in, a teacher who was active a hundred years ago in Japan. It seems that one day, Nan-in received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen. Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he could no longer restrain himself. “It is overflowing! No more will go in!”
“Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?” [Paul Reps and Nyogen Senzaki, compilers, Zen Flesh, Zen Bones: A Collection of Zen and Pre-Zen Writing (Tuttle Publishing, 1998), p. 19.]
In today’s Gospel, Jesus encounters a group of people who, like Nan-in’s visitor, are full cups that need to be emptied if they are ever to receive his message.
