September Mission: St. Luke’s September Mission is the Presbyterian Peace and Global Witness Offering themed “Come to the Table of Peace.” This year the Season of Peace (September 4-October 2) focuses on the communion table and Psalm 78:19 “Can God spread a table in the wilderness?” We live in divisive times filled with daily reports of violence and messages of fear and hate. As people of God, we know that “God not only can but does spread a table of justice, reconciliation, transformation, unity and peace” in the wilderness through our actions. The Peace and Global Witness Offering builds peace in our local community (25%) and supports regional (25%) and global efforts through the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program and the reconciliation work of Presbyterian World Mission. St. Luke’s local mission recipient will be selected at the next Mission Committee meeting on September 12, 2016. Recent agencies have been the Toberman Neighborhood Center for its gang intervention program, South Coast Interfaith Council, and Homeboys. If you have a candidate or a preference, let a Mission Committee member know. “Please give generously in gratitude to the God who spreads such a bountiful table of peace.” Jan Gardner, Mission Chair
