[Or, "Why do I keep hearing about the second coming when I'm trying to focus on sweet baby Jesus?"]
Like liturgical Christians everywhere, we at St. Luke’s have been pondering the meaning of Advent (the weeks leading up to Christmas) in the last couple Sundays. I should probably issue this disclaimer before you read further: Colin and I LOVE Advent, but not for the normal reasons people usually like “the holiday season.”
We are thrilled to begin this new adventure with the people of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in San Diego's North Park neighborhood. Laurel and I will serve as co-pastors and aim to strengthen this Christian community as it seeks justice and healing in this time and place.
We hope you'll join us for a celebration of new ministry at 4 pm on Saturday, November 5. Becky Modesto, a board member of Genesis Church, will offer a sermon, and we'll have plenty of Sudanese songs to dance to and food to enjoy afterwards.
Laurel and I have two children, Robin and Jem, who are also excited to get to know all the young people of St. Luke's!
