From the Senior Pastor

Dear Beloveds,

Please enjoy the picture of the first sunflower bloom of this season at Luther Place Church!

In chapter 2 verse 12, The Song of Solomon shares these words about flowers:

   The flowers appear on the earth;
        the time of singing has come...

May you find ways to celebrate flowers with singing or humming or gazing at beauty.


In Christ,

Pastor Karen Brau

Pastor Karen will be away beginning Monday, June 28, and plans to return Saturday, July 3.

The attached Pentecost calendar contains resources to support your household's faith formation with recordings, scheduled offerings, and additional activity instructions. Look here to listen to upcoming Bedtime stories, Liturgy at Home, Saturday School, and Compline.

Saturday School
In honor of the Stonewall Riot, Saturday School examines again Pride month, and the activism of Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. We continue asking--why is it important how God is represented? How is faithfulness embodied, and how is it practiced? Check out last weekend’s recording here
