Reaching Out…in order to listen and to learn

Grace and peace be with you in the Risen Christ!

People who are part of our Faith Community…St. Luke’s Episcopal Church…come from different traditions in the Christian Faith and have various expectations of a Faith Community.  For various reasons, they may be part of the Worshipping Eucharistic Community…or the Apostolic Community…or the Nominal Community.

Diane O’Mara, a wonderful person with a heart for proclaiming Christ and inviting others to become part of the Worshipping Eucharistic Community, has asked if she could spend some time calling people in our community who may be at a distance…in order to listen and to help us learn.

So, she will be calling folks during the next month to ask them a few questions…What is going well from your perspective, at St. Luke’s…What needs our attention at St. Luke’s…and What might we do to assist you in becoming more connected to our Faith Community?

These are important questions…which need to be asked…and I am grateful for Diane’s willingness to reach out…in order to listen and learn.

It might be helpful if you would take sometime to answer those questions and send them to Diane during the next month.

You can email your responses to stlukes@deskmedia.com at Karen will make sure Diane receives them!

Easter Blessings!

Doug

    Learning to listen and wanting to listen is a critical part, I think, of anyone’s walk in faith. Many thanks to Diane for opening dialogue in this way. We all benefit from efforts like this. I hope that everyone who speak with Diane will feel comforted by her genuine desire to reach out; we are, as Father Doug reminds us, “all one in mission . . ..”
