Telling Our Stories, Finding Our Truth

Each and every one of us has a story to tell, a sacred story, the story of our lives. When that story intersects with our collective story as a community of faith and the story of God’s action in the world, here and now, we call that story a testimony.

St. Luke’s encourages and supports its members in uncovering their stories and provides opportunities for them to share these stories both in and out of worship. Along with partner congregations in the Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance, we have received a “Vital Worship” grant from the Calvin Institute for Christian Worship to explore the rich connections between the ancient Christian practice of testimony and the contemporary resurgence of story-telling in public events, popularized by podcasts like “The Moth Storytelling Hour."
