Weekly letter from St Luke's - 21 June 2024

Dear Parish Friends

After looking at some parables of Jesus last week, our gospel this week recounts a miracle, Jesus calming a storm on the Sea of Galilee. For the gospel writers, miracles are a kind of 'physical parable'. They are recorded to give a message to the readers, both of the late 1st century, when they were written, and of the early 21st century. So as we read of the miracle, the questions we need to address are not really 'how did this happen' but 'what does this tell us about who Jesus is?' and 'what does this mean for us today?'

Our 7am and 9am services follow our usual format (with Zoom streaming at 9am). As the school holidays have started, there will not be Children's Church, but remember that children are always welcome, and there will be a children's talk at 9am as usual. The 9am service sheet and the week's Notice Paper are available via the links below.

Tonight and tomorrow are the final shows for the St Luke's Theatre play "Bell, book and candle". Tickets are now half price if you book online. See here.

Please remember in prayer the Diocesan Synod this weekend. This starts this evening with the Synod Eucharist at St John's Cathedral which will include the consecration of the Rev'd Canon Sarah Plowman as Bishop of the Northern Region. All welcome, or you can watch online here.

Yours in Christ

Rev'd Timothy
