 I will be on vacation next week, July 13-19. Worship this Sunday will be as usual at 10:00 (look for an email on Saturday with the Zoom link and the bulletin). Next Sunday, July 19, worship will be with the Bishop at 9:00. Information for that service can be found at the Diocesan website: https://www.nhepiscopal.org/worship-liturgy.

Our mid-week worship services will continue as usual, thanks to Sammie and Pat, who will host Compline and Morning Prayer in my absence. They will also host Coffee Hour at our usual Zoom link following the Bishop’s service on July 19.

READINGS FOR SUNDAY

The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

July 12th, Proper 10, Year A

Collect of the Day   

O Lord, mercifully receive the prayers of your people who call upon you, and grant that they may know and understand what things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to accomplish them; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

LESSONS                                  We hear the Word of God proclaimed.

First Lesson                                   Genesis 25:19-34

Esau and Jacob are born to Isaac and Rebekah, but it is the second and younger twin who makes himself first, upsetting the established cultural pattern of primogeniture.  God’s purposes are fulfilled within the untidy and compromised patterns of human interaction.  Jacob deceives his brother Esau, who driven by his appetites, loses his birthright.

Psalm                                                               119:105-112

Even in times of hardship, the psalmist is committed to following the statutes and precepts of the Lord.

The Second Lesson                           Romans 8:1-11

In this lesson Paul draws a sharp contrast between the mind set on the flesh, and the mind set on the Spirit.  The person oriented only toward this temporal world with its rewards and pleasures can neither keep the law nor please God.  Only through the grace of God in Christ can a fundamental reorientation toward God’s Spirit occur.  When God’s Spirit quickens faith there is no longer any condemnation, for the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead now indwells those so animated.

 The Gospel                                                 Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

Our gospel is Jesus’ parable of the sower, together with its interpretation.  The story by itself may once have been used to stress how surprisingly fruitful God’s power can be, quite apart from human expectations or control.  With its explanation the parable was used as an allegory by early Christians to help them understand the missionary situation of the church.  Because of the work of the devil and human weakness and sin, the word they preached did not always produce.  But, in the right circumstances, its fruit could be anywhere from substantial to amazing.

UNITED THANK OFFERING


The United Thank Offering (UTO) Presents The Great EpisGOpal Race!

Calling all St. Andrew’s walkers, runners, hikers…...join with me in participating in the

Great EpisGOpal Race Virtual Run/Walk to support the 2020 UTO Ingathering. “Anytime between July 22-July 31, choose your preferred mode and distance and race to raise money for COVID-19 relief.”

Even though it would be fun to organize a team, I just went on the website and it looks like it might be a bit daunting to try and register everyone – need several contact details. If we all do our own registration, we can still be a virtual team and know what we have raised collectively as a parish. Your registration fee of $15 becomes your donation and I think you can also ask people to sponsor you.  Take a look at the website listed below for more details and the registration form.

https://runsignup.com/Race/SD/SiouxFalls/TheGreatEpisGOpalRace

I will be happy to keep track of who registers and our fundraising totals. Give me a call at 367-8223 or send me an email at geopat96@roadrunner.com.  This seems like a great way to make our UTO contribution. Hope to hear from many of you sometime soon.


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

DID YOU KNOW?

IT’S IMPORTANT TO COMPLETE A CENSUS FOR ALL PROPERTIES, INCLUDING SEASONAL HOMES!

I received a call from the Census Bureau asking if I would help spread the word about the low number of Census responses in Carroll County. NH currently reports a response rate of 61.9%, which is the same as the national rate. However, Carroll County’s response rate is only 34%.

The Census representative, Nicole McKenzie, says it’s possible that people who own a summer home may not be aware that they need to complete the census form for all properties they own, which could be a factor in Carroll County’s low response rate. She also noted that households that self-respond will reduce the need to send Census Takers out door-to-door in August.

If you haven’t yet filled out your Census form, please do. It will inform the allocation of federal funding over the next 10 years to support education, healthcare, roads and other needed community services.  

To see response rates of individual states and counties, go to https://2020census.gov/en/response-rates.html

Here are instructions if you own a summer home:

If you live at multiple places throughout the year, count yourself at the address where you live and sleep most of the time. If you split your time evenly between two or more places, count yourself where you were staying on April 1, 2020. However, a census response is required from each and every property. For any property you own but only use part of the time, follow these instructions:

1. Visit www.my2020census.gov

2. Enter the Census ID or address for this secondary property

3. Enter “0” for the number of people living at this property

4. Hit Next, and when a “soft error” occurs, click Next again

5. Select “No” when asked to confirm no person lives at this property

6. Select primary reason – Seasonal (most likely)

7. Complete! If you have already completed the 2020 Census for your primary residence you can exit at this point.

Following these instructions ensures all properties are counted!

For more information go to 2020census.gov or call 1-844-330-2020.

 Prayer for the end of the day:

 In the quiet of the night

may we know your presence, O God.

At the ending of the day

may our souls be alive to your nearness.

Amidst the tiredness that overcomes our bodies

and the tensions that linger in our minds,

amidst the uncertainties and fears

that haunt us in the darkness of the night,

let us know your presence, O God,

let our souls be alive to your presence.

FROM THE RECTOR

Our COVID planning team meets this afternoon (Thursday), so I have nothing to report from our meeting yet. But given the rise in positive cases across much of the US, I wonder if you are feeling differently about gathering for an outdoor Eucharist. We are fortunate to live in New England where the cases, so far at least, are decreasing or remaining flat. On Sunday there will be two poll questions I’d like for you to consider:

1.    Does the increase in cases in other parts of the country impact your thinking on attending an outdoor Eucharist.

2.    Are you happy with our Sunday service as it is, or would you like to have Morning Prayer some or all of the time?

The second question comes from the fact that the Bishop’s services are now Morning Prayer instead of the Liturgy of the Word that we use and that he was using until recently. We will worship with the Bishop again on July 19 when I am on vacation.

Here is a link to a reflection published by the Rt. Rev. Thomas Breidenthal, Bishop of Southern Ohio. He was my Ethics Professor and advisor while I was in seminary, so I follow him on social media, and thought this was worth sharing. It’s titled “A reflection regarding our fast from the Eucharist,” and speaks to me of one aspect of why our online worship experience continues to be meaningful. It’s about a four minute read, according to the internet. Happy reading, and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

READINGS FOR SUNDAY

The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

July 5th, Proper 9, Year A

Collect of the Day   

O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

LESSONS                                  We hear the Word of God proclaimed.

First Lesson                                    Genesis 24:34-38, 42-49, 58-67

Our Hebrew Bible story is about the arranged marriage between Isaac and his kinswoman Rebekah. Abraham sent his trusted servant to his kinfolk in Haran, as he did not want to select a bride for his son from the Canaanites among whom he dwelt.  The providential hand of God is seen in the prosecution and success of this venture.

Psalm                                                                45:10-17

In this psalm for a royal wedding the queen is instructed to leave ancestry behind in preference to loyalty for her king, to whom she goes in procession.

The Second Lesson                            Romans 7:15-25

In this lesson Paul continues to wrestle with the question of the role of the law.  Although the law is good in principle, without God’s saving act in Jesus, it only produces more sinfulness.  Paul feels two strong and opposing tendencies within his being.  Without the new relationship of faith through Jesus, the regulations of the law only cause the tendency to break the law to grow stronger.  Paul speaks of this as a tendency of his flesh, by which he means all within him that does not seek faithful obedience to God.

The Gospel                                                 Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30

In our gospel lesson Jesus compares his generation to capricious children, equally displeased by the austere message of John the Baptist and the inviting message of Jesus.  Yet God’s wisdom will prevail.  Jesus bids all to come and find that the yoke of his teaching is easy to bear.  The disclosure of the divine will come as God’s gracious gift, not through human knowledge.  Especially intimate is the relationship between the Lord of all life and Jesus–that of the Father and Son.  Although he is the Son, Jesus is humble of heart and gentle.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Here is a slightly different form of the Prayer for Spiritual Communion. Thanks to Ann Cady for forwarding it from her church in CT, St. David’s, Gales Ferry.


 Lord Jesus, we cannot now worship you at the altar of the church in the Sacrament of your Body and Blood, yet in spirit we join ourselves with all those who in your Holy Church offer you the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Visit me, I pray, with your mercy, pardon, and blessing, and fill me with faith, love, and repentance. Strengthen and sustain me by your grace, that I may follow you with a pure heart and mind. Now and for ever. Amen.

~ Adapted from the spiritual communion prayer by the Rev. Christopher L. Webber

FROM THE RECTOR

Good afternoon, everyone!

I had a wonderful week off at my sister’s and came back feeling both rested and renewed, which was my goal. The area of upstate NY where my sister lives has a low incidence of Covid-19, very similar to our area. But still I will self-quarantine for two weeks and be tested for Covid on Saturday to be sure I am not unwittingly exposing anyone. 

Thank you again to Sammie, Pat and Christi for leading all the Zoom worship services and being Zoom host for Contemplative Practice in my absence.

Two weeks ago I wrote in the Thursday Memo about the possibility of an outdoor Eucharist, and on the following Sunday (June 14) I polled those present about their interest in attending. The results are as follows, with 24 people responding to the poll:

 Would you come to an outdoor Eucharist in July? ( Multiple Choice)

Answer 1: Yes, definitely.                                                                                       12

Answer 2: I would come in August or September, but July seems too early.          2

Answer 3: I would only come if I could be under a tent.                                          0

Answer 4: I need more information to decide.                                                        2

Answer 5: I wouldn't come, but would be okay if it's held.                                      4

Answer 6: No, too many restrictions.                                                                      0

Answer 7: No, I wouldn't come under any circumstances.                                      1

Answer 8: Other                                                                                                     3

In summary, half of those polled would come, 7 (29%) either need more information or have other reasons for not being certain, and 5 (21%) would not come.

I have felt from the beginning that we should not gather in person again until the majority of us feel comfortable attending and/or we could share the Eucharist. Given the outcome of this poll, I really appreciate Ann Cady’s suggestion that we continue to have our usual Zoom worship on Sunday morning, and have an outdoor Eucharist at some other time, and I believe this is the path we should take. 

Meanwhile, in order to hold an outdoor Eucharist, several conditions need to be met, one of which is forming a team to review guidelines and propose a plan for Vestry approval. This team has been formed, made up of those of you who volunteered (Lin Frank and Cathy Lewis) and the existing Liturgy Committee (Gretchen Behr-Svendsen, Bernice Thompson, Lisa Thompson, Sammie Wakefield and me). There are three documents we need to digest amounting to 51 pages of reading, and our first meeting is next Thursday. Given all the guidelines, it may take us more than one meeting to create a plan!

If any of you would like to read the documents we’re studying they can be found here:

Enjoy our gorgeous, less humid weather, and blessings,

Caroline

READINGS FOR SUNDAY

The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

June 28th, Proper 8, Year A

Collect of the Day   

Almighty God, you have built your Church upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone: Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

LESSONS                                  We hear the Word of God proclaimed.

First Lesson                                    Genesis 22:1-14

Our Hebrew scripture reading is the story of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his only son Isaac in obedience to the Lord’s command.  The narrative illustrates Abraham’s readiness to abandon all to serve the Lord.  Originally it probably also was used as a model story encouraging the substitution of animal for human sacrifices.  Ancient Israel was given a better understanding of God’s will.

The Second Lesson                                            Romans 6:12-23

This lesson teaches that by the grace of God Christians are no longer slaves to sin but are obedient to the service of righteousness. Paul is concluding his long discussion of the way in which disciples have been given a right relationship with God through faith.  They are no longer set on a course that leads through immorality to death.  To use a very human analogy, they are now slaves of righteousness and are bound to the service of God, which leads to holiness and eternal life.

The Gospel                                                             Matthew 10:10-40

In our gospel lection Jesus tells of reward for disciples who find themselves welcomed in his name.  Those who receive Jesus’ followers will find they are receiving the Lord himself and God who sent him.  Those who do well and help even the least of the disciples will find great reward.

FUN WITH NAMES

June 18th repeated this week.

Last  week 

1. Jim Kellett brought a red plastic telephone to the lectern to speak to God during the sermon. Unfortunately, I do not remember their conversation. (I realize this question is a bit unfair, because only about three current parishioners will remember the event.)                                                            

2The Rev. Frederick Cowper was born in Pernambuco, Brazil. His father was a British diplomat, a life which held no attraction for his son. So the young Frederick traveled north from Brazil, eventually settling in Sanbornville, NH.                                                                                       

3. A Pyx is a receptacle used to carry the consecrated Sacrament to the sick. (Later, of course, I thought of another “answer”: Greek, pyxyl from which we get “pixel”).                                                                    

4. Mr. Cowper was the first Vicar of Saint Andrew’s. A vicar is a priest in charge of a mission, meaning a congregation supported by the diocese instead of being a self-sustaining parish which is headed by a rector.  (This succinct definition is from Wikipedia.)                                                                                                 

5The Lectionary (Reading) for Sundays is arranged in a three-year cycle, in which Year A always begins on the First Sunday of Advent in years evenly divisible by three. (BCP p.888)

A NEW PUZZLE

 In the title, The Book of Common Prayer, which word or phrase best defines “Common”?  

1. Inferior, second rate

2. Most widely known, ordinary

3. Belonging to, shared by, applying equally: joint                                                                            

4. Belonging to or relating to the community as a whole: public

 At the end of the 1950’s, it was the idea of The Rev. Dr. Herbert W. Prince (for whom the Prince Room is named) to embark on an ecumenical experiment called:

1. The Tamworth Plan (TTP)

2. The Tamworth Associated Churches (TAC)

3. The Tamworth Experiment (TTE)

 Which three local churches joined together in this effort?

1. Tamworth Congregational, South Tamworth Methodist, Wonalancet Chapel 

2. Chocorua Baptist, South Tamworth Methodist, Saint Andrew’s Episcopal    

3. Tamworth Congregational, Saint Andrew’s Episcopal, Chocorua Baptist

 What is meant by “Proper” in “The Proper of the Day”  

 1. A set of rules governing acceptable Christian behavior   

2. Appropriate prayers or special liturgies for an appointed day or feast 

 3. A fence around the church to prevent sheep and goats from grazing on the parish lawn  

 Note: Thank you for your encouragement of this project. Due to my hand surgery on June 19, FUN WITH NAMES will return in a few weeks. Lisa

God, we thank you for the inspiration of Jesus.

Grant that we will love you with all our hearts, minds and souls,

and love our neighbors as ourselves (even those with whom we disagree).

And we ask you God, in these days of emotional tension,

when the problems of the world are gigantic in extent and chaotic in detail,

to be with us in our going out and our coming in,

in our rising up and in our lying down,

in our moments of joy and sorrow. Amen.
