Reflections on Luminaria

Luminaria was for me and those who participated in it a blessing and a joy.

That kind of experience is present when we do the work Christ wants us to do, spoken in the “Great Commission” at the end of Matthew’s gospel: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”

Parenting and the Media

With the summer months upon us, we often get to enjoy a break from our usual schedules and our children often have more free time.  The lives of America’s young people are saturated with media and they spend nearly eight hours a day using one form or another of it.  This month we would like to discuss Parenting and the Media with you.   

As Parents, We Should…

- Be aware and be involved.

On Maternity Leave

Sometime in the next few weeks I will be headed off for a few months of maternity leave. Our first child is due to arrive soon, and my husband and I are so thankful that the people of St. John’s provide me with this time to bond as a family.

In my absence, my colleagues will be pitching in to cover my responsibilities. And since I will be returning to work in a part-time capacity after my leave, we are hiring a new Children’s Ministries Coordinator.
