Coming in October: Zoom Wine & Cheese
As much as COVID disrupted our lives, there were also some benefits. We discovered Zoom! For much of last winter and into the spring, we held a Zoom coffee hour following worship. Now that we have resumed in-person worship, we still want to connect with our members and friends who live elsewhere during the winter months. Beginning in October, we will hold Wednesday evening Wine & Cheese via Zoom. On the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, we will meet at 5:00 p.m. (Central time). Our first Zoom Wine & Cheese will be held on Wednesday, October 13th. The Zoom link will be posted in the E-News.
Mask requirement at worship
Given the recent surge in Covid-19 cases in Door County, we are asking that anyone attending worship services at St. Luke’s wear a mask whether or not they are vaccinated. We will need to continue with this protocol until the current COVID-19 surge lessens. Thank you for understanding.
The hospital recently informed us that we are now able to visit hospitalized parishioners and friends of the parish. If you are hospitalized and would like a pastoral visit, please let me know. Also, if you wish a home visit, I am happy to call of you. Give me a call.

In his annual visit to St. Luke's Sept. 12, Bishop Matthew Gunter preached on the theme of interdependence. Creation is a web of interconnectedness which is the way God wants us to be, he said. But "this fabric of humanity, he note, is broken by violence.
We try to meet the special needs of both members and visitors through equipping our facility with a hearing loop system, an ADA restroom and a restroom with changing table, access with no stairs to both worship and fellowship space, and accessible parking.
"Our vocation is to live as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. But how can we together grow more deeply with Jesus Christ at the center of our lives, so we can bear witness to his way of love in and for the world?"
- Presiding Bishop Michael Curry

The St. Luke Book Club’s September read is When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro. The club will meet via Zoom on Friday, September 24th at noon. Diana Wallace will lead the discussion.
From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and author of the Booker Prize–winning novel The Remains of the Day comes this stunning work of soaring imagination. Masterful, suspenseful and psychologically acute, When We Were Orphans offers a profound meditation on the shifting quality of memory, and the possibility of avenging one’s past.
