The summer season at St. Luke's runs from the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend (May 27) through the Sunday of Labor Day weekend (August 26). This summer we will continue with three Sunday morning services -- the big change is that the 10:30 service will stay at 10:30. Meanwhile, the 9:00 service will move into the garden.
Special note: On Sunday, August 26 we will have one service at 9:00 followed by a pot lunch brunch. Save the date!
So much for practical planning, now here is a prayer to carry with you for summertime:
The Warmth of Summer Sun
Under the warmth of the summer sun the world awakes and blossoms into every imaginable color. You created a garden for us to enjoy and within it planted the most magical of flower and trees. You needed no horticultural training to plan your color scheme, no gardening expert to recommend variety or design. Your garden is perfect its colors harmonious its scale immense spoilt only by the clumsiness of those who tend it. Creator God who breathed this world into being who is discernible within the harmony of nature -- the perfection of a butterfly's wing, the grandeur of a mountain range, and the soaring eagle and humming bird -- thank you for this world which you have created. Thank you for summer sun which reminds us that your creative breath is still alive and active. Thank you for the warmth of your love sustaining this Earth: your garden. Amen.
