OSO MUDSLIDE DISASTER RELIEF


For the next couple of weeks St. Luke’s will be taking up a special offering to assist with the relief of our neighbors up in Snohomish County after the terrible mudslide. The offering will go to Episcopal Relief and Development which is working closely with the Diocese of Olympia in relief efforts. This is a terrible natural disaster affecting so many people here in our region. Please keep the people of Oso and Snohomish County in your prayers and as well as the relief workers.

The Camino of Santiago de Compestella and our Lenten Pilgrimage

From Our Rector:

For my reading this Lent I have been reading a book on the Camino of Santiago de Compostela.  As I have mentioned in my Sunday sermons, the Camino is an ancient pilgrimage route that goes from various places in Europe to Santiago, Spain, where the relics of St. James, the Apostle, are enshrined.  This has been a popular pilgrimage for well over 1000 years and is very popular today.  (Some 240,000 pilgrims walk the 500 mile route every year.)

FISH FOOD BANK

As 2014 gets underway, please consider adding or continuing 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. Although we are not able to continue staffing the food bank with volunteers, St. Luke’s continues to have a presence in this important ministry. There are also food bank donation envelopes in the Sunday Bulletins on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The needs do not go away, just because we cannot fill our volunteer hours. Remember that Monetary donations distribute SEVEN times the amount donated ($25 buys $175 worth of food). FOOD DONATIONS, PAPER and PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS AND RUBBER BANDS Continue to be MUCH NEEDED!  There is ALWAYS room for volunteering! If there are scout troops, church school groups or other organizations that you belong to, food bank always has opportunities for service.  If you are interested please contact the church office!

Shaping a Rule or Rhythm of Life

Back in December Cindy Miller gave me a wonderful little book. It is entitled God in My Everything by Ken Shigematsu. Cindy had heard Pastor Shigematsu speak at a chapel service at World Vision. Ken has an interesting background. He is Japanese and worked for many years in the corporate world. Later he received a call from God to enter the ordained ministry. He became a pastor and now serves a thriving congregation in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The point of this amazing book is to help us as followers of Christ to learn to find God in all aspects of our lives. Too often we feel that God is being crowded out of our lives. We keep so busy and have so many demands competing for our time. In his book Pastor Shigematsu writes about a time tested way to keep God at the center of our lives and that is to develop a Rule of Life. A Rule or Rhythm of Life is a regular set of practices which shape and strengthen our spiritual lives.
