Search Committee Begins Work of Finding Our New Priest

The search committee has begun the difficult task of discerning a new priest for St. Luke’s. We are honored to have the privilege and the responsibility of finding our next pastor. This is a process of transition for the entire church and we believe everyone should be as informed and involved as possible. First things first: introductions. The search committee is made up of Margaret Hoyer, Chris Huss, Cindy Miller, Stephen Gorham, Julie Christoph, Betsy Johnson and myself along with a wonderful representative from the diocese.

We will receive candidate names in early March. We have spent the last month getting to know one another, learning about the search committee process, and planning out our next steps. Our goal is to be finished by the fall and we are planning our timeline with that target date in mind. However, we have agreed that the most important part of our task is finding the person that God has chosen to lead our church. This is not a hiring committee. We are going through a mutual discernment as we try to find the right person for St. Luke’s and they try to find us.

We want to be as open as possible with the church community during this transition, but confidentiality requirements prevent us from sharing any details about the candidates themselves. So feel free to ask us about what we are doing and how the search is going, but please understand that there are some details we will not be able to share. We will give you regular updates on our progress in church, in the Bridge, and here online. If you have questions, please find one of us at coffee hour and we’d be happy to speak to you. Finally, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers these next several months. We cannot do it all without your support.

FISH FOOD BANK NEEDS

MUSCLES NEEDED! Regular Tus./Wed. 10-noon volunteers who can lift 50 lbs. to help unload trucks and stock shelves. If you know anyone who is looking for some volunteer hours, please contact Debbie Corcoran

ITEMS NEEDED: Canned fruit/vegetables, peanut butter, tuna, chili, canned beans or low-fat refried beans, toilet paper, PLASTIC BAGS, rubber bands.

MONETARY DONATIONS: Please consider monetary donations to food bank. Checks can be made to St. Luke’s with “food bank” on the memo line. This allows you to receive the tax benefit of your donation. Re-member that Monetary donations distribute SEVEN times the amount donated ($25 buys $175 worth of food).

NOURISH FUNDRAISER: There will be an auction fundraiser on Friday May 8 at the Murano Hotel, to support the entire Pierce County FISH organization. St. Luke’s will be putting together a basket or two for this. If you have any items that you could contribute to the silent or live auction, please contact Cindy Stangl. Auction items could include things like wine, good jewelry, time share time, tickets to events, business services, etc. If you or your company/volunteer group would like to sponsor or participate in this auction that is an option too!

There is always room for volunteering!

ATTITUDE

A story is told of an elderly lady. She is sitting patiently in the lobby of an assisted living facility. We all know ladies like her. She is impeccable in every way. Her hair, makeup, clothes, and even her posture is flawless.

Suddenly, her son charges in. He is everything but impeccable. Shirttail untucked; his hair is messed up; his face is beet red. “I do not know what is wrong with this place. They told me your room would be ready at 9:00 a.m. It is not, and no one can tell me when it will be ready!” He turns and storms off in search of answers. The lady does not react to her son and continues to patiently sit.
