St. Luke’s cherishes its rich model of Christian education, believing that in study we find questions, in questions we find doubt, in doubt we find faith, and in faith we become the hands and feet of God.
St. Luke’s offers education programs for all ages, group study opportunities, and partnerships with educators, community activists and civic leaders from within St. Luke’s and throughout Atlanta. We draw upon the tradition exemplified by former Theologian- in-Residence the Rev. Dr. John Westerhoff, who served at St. Luke’s from 1994 to 2005. People came from all over the city to hear Dr. Westerhoff and be nurtured and challenged as Christians in the modern age. St. Luke’s continues to aspire to Dr. Westerhoff’s vision of Christian formation that involves brain, body, and soul. Dr. Westerhoff often quoted an earlier theologian: “The opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty.” This remains an ethic at St. Luke’s today.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect.”Romans 12:2
