“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.”

~ Martin Luther

Dear St. Luke’s parishioners and friends,

I have been thinking of you and praying for you for a little while now, touched by the deep love you have shared with Pastor Bill and Pat, and for the rare gift of their 33 years at St. Luke’s. As he said in his last newsletter, the change of pastors does not mean that friendships and love do not continue. Love never ends. Thanks be to God!

It is the most natural thing for you to be feeling any number of emotions – loss, grief, confusion, anxiety. This is normal. I have not come to rush you through these feelings. Take your time. Feel everything.

I am here as your interim shepherd, to walk with you in this transition time, to celebrate and honor the legacy that is yours in this special place.

I am here to hear your stories, to get to know you and support you as individuals, and as a community. I am here to pray with you, laugh with you, dream with you, listen to you, sing with you, sit with you. I am here as a friend. 

Together we will navigate this strange new territory.

yours,

Pastor Cricket Cooper

Interim Pastor
