Hello friends . . . grace and peace,
The Luck of the Irish. Do you feel lucky, well do you, punk? Frosted Lucky Charms. Luck be a lady, tonight. There are references to “luck” all over pop culture. Mythical creatures, films, breakfast cereals, musicals, and more. We’ve gone out of our way to come up with different methods of talking about or even stereotyping “luck”.
But what IS “luck”? According to Webster’s dictionary, luck is “a purposeless, unpredictable and uncontrollable force that shapes events favorably or unfavorably for an individual, group or cause”. But elsewhere people see “luck” as something to seek out and even be a guiding force for their lives. It comes down to this . . .
We here at the STYG tend to see ourselves in Group Number 1. We see signs. We experience blessings. We believe in miracles. And the reason is because we’ve seen them happen in the midst of our community. People are helped. Friends are healed. Prayers are answered. Love is experienced as real and transformative. God has been, is, and will continue to be among us – not because of anything we do or believe. God is among us because God loves us.
You’re invited to be a part of this whole thing. There’s lots of ways you can do that. Check out all the menu items up top for more information about ways you can join us as we practice, learn, and grow in the Way of Jesus.
peace to you
