Sunday is the fourth Sunday after Pentecost, and, at St. Luke, the gospel lesson from Matthew 10:40-42, about Jesus welcoming those he sends. [Jesus said to the twelve:] 40“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.”
A “virtual coffee hour” follows the service, beginning at 10:30.
On Wednesday evenings, we invite you to join us at 7:15, as we share in “Silence, Simplicity, and Prayer.”
