THIS MONTH'S FEATURE:
St Lucas Garden News
A garden grows whene’er we plant one seed to tend and nourish.
For from that seed a plant will spring with fruits that grow and flourish.
Then that one seed will yield two, then four, till seeds in plenty,
Will yield armloads of great fruit, and we will feed the many.
Have you walked through our garden? Every plant seems to be bearing good things to eat! Our rhubarb, that wasn’t supposed to be producing until next year, has many luscious stalks available. the beans are still lush, the eggplants are many, and there must be a couple of hundred pounds of tomatoes ripening on their vines.
There are peppers, cucumbers and squashes to pick, the newly planted beets and turnips are up and growing, and the herbs are growing like weeds. The sunflowers are growing so heavy they can’t hold their heads up, and the early raspberries are setting a second set of buds that will be berries soon.
If you are a Thrivent Member and you haven’t designated your Thrivent Grant yet, consider the Community Garden as a designee. We have several beds that have been battered by the weather and will need to have their sides replaced, and there are other projects that could be funded – ask me for some ideas.
Take a quick turn through the garden and see what little miracles it has to show you. Send questions or comments to:
firstname.lastname@example.org or join me in the garden after Second Service on Sunday Morning.
Sunday Morning Early Service
formal liturgy in the St. Lucas main sanctuary. We sing a variety of

There are many thoughts to ponder from this sermon....but here are just 2; Drawing distinctions in people (if it weren't for these people we would be happy) and in today's gospel Jesus said (and we are paraphrasing) it is not what goes into your mouth but what comes out.
