Weekly letter from St Luke's - 23 September 2020

Dear Parish Friends I gain much inspiration from the daily readings of Evening Prayer. Tonight we read from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians: Be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 6,18b-20) When we meet together we sing because in essence, we do what the people of God have done through the ages; they hear about what God does and sing about it. The Israelites knew this well, and we still use their hymn book, the Psalms, which reflect on all aspects of life with God, both joy

Weekly letter from St Luke's - 16 September 2020

Dear Parish Friends Last night the Parish Council voted to proceed with the proposed Anglican Early Learning Centre on our site at St. Luke’s. I realise that this is committing us to a long journey as we finalise the plans and then live with the disruption of the building works and other changes. I know too that for many we embark with a sense of trepidation as we strike out from what we know and love of the past and present.

Dear Parish Friends One of the benefits of the Anglican tradition of Morning and Evening Prayer is that one systematically reads through much of the bible, rather than just jumping around. This means that we get to hear some passages that never make it into the Sunday lectionary. In the last couple of weeks, at Evening Prayer, we have been reading the books of Tobit and Judith. Maybe you haven’t heard of these books. These are two of the books that, in Protestant bibles, are included in the Apocrypha, which are books that are found in the Septuagint (the Greek version of the Hebrew Scriptures), but not in the Hebrew texts used by the Jewish Rabbis. In one of the foundational documents of the

Weekly letter from St Luke's - 2 September 2020

Dear Parish Friends This week we have had the fourth in the series of studies inspired by the musical Jesus Christ Superstar and this time the topic was ‘the church’. When we think of what the church is, we clearly need to look beyond the physical building, which is just the place where the church, the body of Christ sometimes meets. The author of the study, Bishop David Wilbourne, encouraged us to think about images of the church and by implication what is our purpose. He writes: The main image for the Church is to see it as a boat, which is why the centre of any church building is called the nave - Latin for ‘ship’. But what sort of ship? Is the ship in dock, rusting, with the crew stirrin
