Evening Prayer with The Rev. Veronika Travis and others from St. Luke's is online every Wednesday night at 6 pm. This quiet, structured evening service from the Book of Common Prayer has been used by Anglicans for more than 400 years to put the troubles of the day to bed and begin the evening. We will read one or two lessons from the daily office lectionary, say one or two portions of the Psalms together, and pray for the concerns of our community and the world. All this takes about 20 minutes and is a marvelous way to give your day to God. Come every time, or when you are able. Let Veronika know via this form if you would like to be invited to the Zoom web conference. All you need is an internet connection and a desire to pray with others. Veronika will lead you through the rest.
Join us for a time of examining our roots in Jesus Christ, recalling who we are called to be and what we are called to do in his name. Listening to each other will strengthen us to reconnect and grow in community as we serve Christ in the world today. Come for time with our bishops and diocesan leaders as we share hopes for the Church in Virginia.
Do you celebrate your birthday every year? Most of us do. Do you celebrate your baptism every year? What an idea! Some folks do it at home, and some don't, but St. Luke's is going to celebrate everyone's baptism, and invite those not yet baptized to learn about it and celebrate this gift God gives us freely. Please come a little early or stay a little later on Sunday, January 13th when we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord Jesus and our own re-birth in his grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.
