Martha Murray, Senior Warden: I first attended St. Luke's at age 13, when my family moved back east from California. The church has been an integral part of my life since then. It has been my privilege to serve on the Vestry under Sam Davis, Fritz Creamer and now, Denis Brunelle. After a long career in advertising and publishing we retired to East Hampton where I now work for Sotheby's. I am an avid golfer, an average bridge player and an ardent grandmother of 6. The world is wildly changing and the church is necessarily evolving. St. Luke's is a place where we can find peace. We must keep the essence of the Christian faith foremost in our minds and hearts.

Lysbeth Marigold, Junior Warden: is a freelance writer and co- author of three books on the cultural landscape. Until 2001, I spent part of 12 years living with the Bedouins in Petra, Jordan, excavating Nabataean tombs and early churches. Currently serving on various community boards including the Village Zoning Board of Appeals, I am proud to be on St. Luke's smart and cohesive Vestry. My ministry includes serving as a Eucharistic Minister and Reader, and originator of the Mother's Day House & Garden Tour. Our whole family is deeply involved in the daily life of the church -- with daughter, Skye Qi, in the Choir and partner, Dianne Benson, an EM also; we all volunteer wherever help is needed. Sense of community and deep spiritual fulfillment -- plus the added bonus of a powerful minister -- are what keeps us bound into the rich fabric of this church. Quiet goal: spreading the word about St. Luke's to bring in new members, whether for a wedding, to enlarge the congregation or simply to share the joy.
