Concert: Washington International Chorus

The Washington International Chorus is a non profit organiation that exists for the sheer enjoyment of music.  Singers are committed to performing music that is representative of various countries by tapping into the vast potential of cultural diversity in the Washington DC metropolitan and surrounding areas.

The Washington International Chorus believes that choral music is particularly suitable for demonstrating the cultural richness of the world's peoples and communities.

Transcending mere language, live choral performance allows audiences to experience the beauty, complexity and distinctiveness of living cultural heritage. At the same time, it serves as a reflection of positive cultural encounters and exchange, in which diverse traditions and languages communicate through art and come together through song.

Board Game Night!

The first St. Luke's Board Game Night was a success! Cloisters were claimed by monks (Carcassone), real estate was bought (Monopoly), players were quite apologetic (Sorry!), cities were connected by rail (Ticket to Ride), bamboo shoots were grown and eaten (Takenoko), patterns were Qwirkled (Qwirkle), and TIE Fighters were destroyed (X-Wing Miniatures). We had so much fun that we are going to make it a regular event, so come on out on the third Friday of every month, 6-10 PM, for more family fun. Bring yourself, your friends, some food to share, and--if you want--your favorite board game.

Christ Walk - Lenten Program

Christ Walk: A 40 Day Spiritual Fitness Program is a 40-day program about Christian living: mind, body and spirit. Many Christians struggle with health and illness. Many Christians deeply want to connect their spiritual beliefs to their whole life, but need assistance. There is a mind, body and spiritual connection to health.  When we do not approach our health holistically and God-centered, then no medicine in the world will get us well. Christ Walk is a holistic program based on Christian teachings that outlines a path for Christian Formation to incorporate mind, body and spiritual activities into practice.  This Lent, we will be lead in a six-week Christ Walk program by our very own, Anna Courie (author of the Christ Walk program) for our weekly Lenten discipline.  We will gather at 5 pm for a potluck meal, break for worship at 6 pm, and promptly begin our Christ Walk workshops at 6:15. The Lenten Program starts 14 February and runs through Palm Sunday. Childcare will be provided and there will be an opportunity for youth to participate (contact Grace Pratt for details). Christ Walk books will be available for purchase for $12.60.  Join us on this Lenten journey as we build healthy Christians: body, mind AND soul. #christwalk

January 11, 2016: Understanding the Historical Jesus

January 11, 2016: Understanding the Historical Jesus

 “Suppose that a Catholic, a Protestant, a Jew, and an agnostic…were locked up in the bowels of the Harvard Divinity School library, put on a Spartan diet, and not allowed to emerge until they had hammered out a consensus document on who Jesus of Nazareth was and what he intended in his own time and place.  An essential requirement of this document would be that it be based on purely historical sources and arguments.”  What would such a document conclude?

 

That is the question asked by Father John Meyer, a Catholic priest and professor of the New Testament at Notre Dame, in his series of books entitled “A Marginal Jew:  Rethinking the Historical Jesus.”  Meyer’s study seeks to uncover the Jesus of history using rigorous modern historical research methods and will be the basis of a “study group” at St. Luke’s starting in January (several copies of vol. 1 of the “Marginal Jew” series are available at the Fairfax County Public Library or can be ordered online).  Please note that this is an academic study and as such there are likely to be topics and discussions that challenge how we currently understand our faith.  Nonetheless, we encourage interested people to bring their questions, curiosity, and an open mind to take a rigorous look at the “marginal Jew” Jesus, his times, his ministry, and his impact in Roman Palestine.

 

Our introductory meeting will be held on Monday, January 11 at 6:30PM at Chris Koppen’s house, 2003 Paul Spring Road, Alexandria, VA 22307, and on the second Monday of the month thereafter.  If you are interested in participating or if you have any questions, please contact Chris Koppen at ckoppen@avancerhp.com
