The Lucas Legacy at St. Helen’s Bishopsgate – London

I am often asked, “Where do you see us going at Christ Church?”  “What’s the vision of Christ Church?”  When I was hired at Christ Church Westshore (then St. Barnabas), the name that I dropped more than any other was the Rev. Dick Lucas.  Although it is an downtown London congregation, and Dick Lucas is a different personality and demeanor than myself, he and others like him are who I am attempting to follow as the Rector of Christ Church.  I say – “Put a collar and a robe on me and you will find very little difference between us”.  Dick Lucas’ commitment to Bible exposition, Bible Study through Read, Mark, Learn, and service to the city has transformed not only St. Helen’s, but many Londoners across the past 50 years.  I pray that our legacy at Christ Church would be a similar one, here in a suburban Cleveland context.
