Find some peace
St. Luke's United Methodist Church

September, 2012

Dear St. Luke’s Friend,

The disciples are piled into a boat on the Sea of Galilee, and an evening storm blows in.  The small boat is in danger of being capsized, and the twelve friends are afraid for their lives.  Jesus, on the other hand, is stretched out, sleeping in the stern at the end of a hard day.   It is a beautiful picture of “the peace of Christ.”

The world is a wild and stormy place, and all of us need some sanctuary, a way to find some peace.  The bills need to be paid.  The kids’ science projects needs to be monitored.  The roof needs to be fixed.  Doctor’s appointments must be made and kept.  Phone calls need to be returned.  And on top of that there are family conflicts and illness and work disagreements.  The storms of life are raging.  How do you find some sanctuary, some peace, in the midst of all of this?

Beginning this Sunday, September 16, we will talk together at St. Luke’s about how we can find that sanctuary.  On Sunday mornings, we will consider how we can claim a sanctuary spirit in the midst of the storm, as well as discover together the art of creating sanctuary moments, sanctuary spaces, sanctuary people, and sanctuary seasons. In addition, we have a small gift and some resources you might use at home to insist on some sanctuary in your life.

This would be a wonderful time to invite a friend or neighbor to worship with you.  Do you know someone who needs a little sanctuary? 

In Christ,

Tom Pace
