FROM THE RECTOR

Thank you to everyone who helped with the clean up day last week!! Cleaning was thorough and much of the furniture was brought inside from the MiBox container.

Clean Up Day: We are grateful to Lin Frank, who organized the day, and Christi Humphrey, Cathie Lewis, Bruce and Claudia Kennedy. Bill Lord, Stuart Lord, Kit and Suzanne Morgan, Kevin Mort, Tina Quinn, George and Patti Rau, Lisa Thompson and Sammie Wakefield. (Am I leaving anyone out?) They cleaned the Prince Room and Parish Hall from top to bottom, washed the windows on the interior and made a good dent in cleaning the kitchen.

New Kitchen Coordinator! David Manley was the last person to hold this position, and for the last two years it has gone unfilled. I’m so happy to announce that Tina Quinn is our new kitchen coordinator. She will monitor supplies and let Deb know when we’re running low on something, keep items in their proper places, make sure large appliances are properly maintained, dispose of outdated items in the fridge, cull the duplicate pots, pans and skillets and more. Many thanks, Tina!

Please keep John McGowan in your prayers. He was admitted to Wentworth Douglas Hospital in Dover on Monday.

Don’t forget your masks! Masks are required at St. Andrew’s again – please wear a mask whenever you enter the building. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Blessings,  Caroline

READINGS FOR SUNDAY                
Sunday, August 29, 2021
Pentecost 14, Proper 17, Year B

The Collect                              

Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of your Name; increase in us true religion; nourish us with all goodness; and bring forth in us the fruit of good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

First Lesson                              Song of Solomon 2:8-13

Our Hebrew Bible reading brings us a celebration of love in the springtime of the year.  The lover bounds across mountains to peer through the lattice of his beloved’s enclosure to summon her into the meadows.  There was considerable discussion about the inclusion of the Song of Solomon in the Hebrew Bible, but many rabbis found here an allegory of God’s love for Israel.  Following this tradition, many Christian interpreters perceived in the Song of Solomon an allegory for the love between Christ and the church.

Psalm 45:1-2, 7-10

A poem for a royal wedding celebrating the ruler’s majesty.

The Second Lesson                             James 1:17-27

This lesson consists of a series of teachings on the meaning of true religion: doing God’s word.  Every good gift comes from the unchanging Father.  By God’s word of truth we are given birth and have a first place among all creatures.  Purified from anger and all other bad conduct, we are not only to hear God’s word but to put it into practice.  So do we observe the perfect law that sets people free–the law as interpreted by Jesus.

The Gospel                               Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23

In the gospel passage Jesus denounces those who find ways to ignore the genuine commandments of God, and he calls people to the awareness that the only evil which can corrupt a person comes from within.  His judgments are occasioned by an accusation against his disciples that they are not following the rules of ritual cleansing.  On one level Jesus’ words warn against the human tendency to fashion traditions that become more important than the law itself.  More significantly still, his teaching points to the dangers involved in making legalism the basis for one’s life.

FROM CLEANUP DAY

















August 19, 2021


FROM THE RECTOR

Carpet Installation Is Complete!!  And it looks beautiful!! Thank you to Lin Frank for meeting with the installers and touching base with them all week while they worked!




Clean Up Day is Tomorrow at 8:30 a.m.: come and help! Bring your dusting and cleaning supplies, especially dusters, Windex, paper towels, step ladders, etc. We’ll be cleaning all surfaces, walls, windows and the kitchen. Once we finish we’ll set a date to move everything from the MiBox container back into the building. We’ve decided to do it ourselves so that we can sort in the parking lot and decide what needs to go to the thrift store or dump. And we may get a head start on moving tomorrow.

We have some new computer and camera operators for Zooming Sunday services. Thanks to Pat Adams, Jen Huckman and Kaitlyn Marshall for joining the team, and welcome! They join existing team members Christi Humphrey, Tina Quinn, Patti Rau and Sammie Wakefield. If this is something that interests you, please let me know. The more people we have the less frequently everyone needs to serve.

Masks are required at St. Andrew’s again – please wear a mask whenever you enter the building. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and stay healthy!

READINGS FOR SUNDAY                
Sunday, August 22, 2021
Pentecost 13, Proper 16, Year B

The Collect                              

Grant, O merciful God, that your Church, being gathered together in unity by your Holy Spirit, may show forth your power among all peoples, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

First Lesson                              1 Kings 8:22-30, 41-43

In the Hebrew scripture lesson Solomon offers praise to the Lord and prays that the newly built temple may be a house for the Lord’s gracious presence.  King Solomon and the elders have just given the ark of the covenant a home, placing it in the temple they are now dedicating.  Solomon recognizes that God transcends all human buildings, but asks the Lord to be present to those who call upon God in this temple–not only the people of Israel, but also foreigners who come to worship in Jerusalem.

Psalm 84

A song of the pilgrims’ happiness as they come to worship in the temple of the Lord.

The Second Lesson                             Ephesians 6:10-20

In this New Testament lesson Christians are instructed to put on the whole armor of God in order to defend themselves from the powers of evil, which are beyond any human control.  The passage recognizes that it is God who will take the active role against these superhuman forces.  In this battle it is the Christian’s primary task to stand and resist.  The language and imagery may once have been used in an address to newly baptized disciples.  Finally, they are urged to be constant in prayer, remembering Paul who is now in prison.

The Gospel                              John 6:56-69

In the gospel we hear of different responses to Jesus’ claim that he is the heavenly bread that gives the life of the eternal age to those who eat it.  His are words of spirit and life, but many can understand them only in a materialistic sense and are life the Israelites who did not trust God in the wilderness.  Yet, if this saying is hard for them to believe, more difficult still will be Jesus’ ascent into heaven as the Son of Man.  As Jesus knew would happen, many disciples now turn away, but Peter confesses him to be God’s holy one who has the words of eternal life.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Put on the whole armor of God.
                   —Ephesians 6.11


You can't wear two suits of armor at once.
Wear either the armor of defensiveness,
the armor of being right, of superior power;
or the armor of God: the armor of love.

Dare to walk into this world
unshielded from hurt and disappointment,
unprotected except by your faith in grace
and your trust in the Love at the heart of all things.
Be willing to be wrong, to be humiliated,
to be powerless, to suffer for love.
Let there be no armor, no barrier
between you and life.

Love is vulnerability,
which is receptiveness to life.
Therein lies its power.
It's the armor of God.

You will be wounded; but you will live.
You will not be safe, but you will be saved.

FROM THE RECTOR

Carpet installation is almost complete!!  The parish hall, stage and ramp are all finished, and the Prince Room is underway.  Thank you to Sally DeGroot and Lisa Thompson for picking the colors – it looks beautiful! The carpet in the parish hall is shades of gray, and the Prince Room is blue with highlights in blue and cream. It makes the blue wall in the Prince Room pop even more!

We’re planning a clean up day for the interior of the church in the next two weeks to clean all the dust left from paint scraping and carpet installation. We want to complete this before we bring the furniture in the MiBox container back inside. We’ll dust high and low, wash windows and clean the kitchen thoroughly. Stay tuned for a date and time.

Thank you, Tina and Lin, for hosting our first coffee hour since the pandemic began!

Breaking News: The Diocese of NH Covid Response Team has just released a statement to the clergy and wardens of the Diocese recommending that churches in the diocese follow current CDC recommendations and require masks for all who attend indoor church gatherings, regardless of vaccination status. The letter encourages church leaders to make and enforce decisions about masking or other protocols for the safety of all. Churches are also encouraged to continue to offer alternatives to indoor worship for those who are not comfortable attending or wearing masks.

For this Sunday, I strongly encourage everyone to wear masks. Beginning on Sunday, August 22, masks will be required for all at any church events. Thank you for your cooperation.

I hope everyone is staying cool this week!

READINGS FOR SUNDAY                

Sunday, August 15, 2021
Pentecost 12, Proper 15, Year B

Collect of the Day                    

Almighty God, you have given your only Son to be for us a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace to receive thankfully the fruits of his redeeming work, and to follow daily in the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

First Lesson                              1 Kings 2:10-12; 3:3-14

In our Hebrew Bible lesson Solomon assumes the throne of his father David and asks for an understanding and discerning mind to govern God’s people.  Because Solomon’s request is not for riches and honor, God, in this dream vision, grants him a wise and discerning mind.  God promises, if Solomon will walk in the ways of the Lord, to lengthen the days of his kingship.

Psalm 111

This psalm is an outpouring of praise for the majesty and graciousness of the Lord, who redeems the people of  God.

The Second Lesson                             Ephesians 5:15-20

In this reading the new Christians at Ephesus are bid to live wisely and, glad with songs, to give thanks for everything to God.  Instead of following drunken ways, symbolic of all kinds of foolish behavior, they are to be filled with the Holy Spirit.  Because the time is in the grip of evil, opportunities to do the will of the Lord must be used to the full.

The Gospel                                       John 6:51-58

In the gospel lesson Jesus speaks of the flesh and blood of the Son of Man as the bread from heaven which must be eaten in order to share in the life of the eternal age.  Previously in this gospel the bread of life had seemed to signify Jesus’ teaching and his presence.  Now it is given still more significance with the understanding that the believer may share deeply in the life of Jesus and his self-offering.  This experience is enacted in the Holy Communion.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

The Vast Ocean Begins Just Outside Our Church: The Eucharist


Something has happened
to the bread
and the wine.

They have been blessed.
What now?
The body leans forward

to receive the gift
from the priest’s hand,
then the chalice.

They are something else now
from what they were
before this began.

I want
to see Jesus,
maybe in the clouds

or on the shore,
just walking,
beautiful man

and clearly
someone else
besides.

On the hard days
I ask myself
if I ever will.

Also there are times
my body whispers to me
that I have.

FROM THE RECTOR

It Was a Feast! Many thanks to everyone attended on Sunday, and to those who offered reflections about church during the pandemic. There were so many thoughtful offerings, and so much spiritual depth. I was especially struck by what was said about our community, and the fact that we were able to stay connected and support each other in such a powerful way on Zoom. Other reflections included:  

·         Time to volunteer for new things, and learn more about how things work behind the scenes

·         Compline

·         So happy to be back in person for Eucharist

·         Missed prayer shawl ministry and so happy that is meeting again

·         Church is not a building but the people

·         Not a techie person – Zoom was hard. So glad to be back

·         Seeing everyone’s faces on Zoom during worship and other gathering – I miss that

·         Connection in good times and bad – deep despair and times of joy - together we can get though anything

·         Aha moment – realized how much I took the church and people for granted, and how precious everyone is 

Thank you as well to all helped make the parish brunch such a success! There was so much delicious food!  It truly was a feast! Thanks to the Vestry for supplying the main dishes, to Tina and Lin for cooking in their ovens at home, to Jen for working the kitchen, and to everyone who helped with set up and clean up, and moving items from the Prince Room and stage back into the church in preparation for the new carpet installation. We’ll have to have another celebration when the carpet is laid and all the furniture is moved from the MiBox back inside. 

Carpet installation begins on Monday. In order to give the installers room to work, please do not come to the church during the week unless absolutely necessary. Carpet installation will be finished in plenty of time for our Sunday services. 

Martha Wayt’s burial is tomorrow (Friday) at 4:00 pm. All are welcome!

READINGS FOR SUNDAY                

Sunday, August 8, 2021
Pentecost 11, Proper 14, Year B

Collect of the Day                    

Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

First Lesson                              2 Samuel 18:5-9, 15, 31-33

In our opening lesson David orders his most trusted military commanders to crush a coup led by Absalom, his son.  He asks that “the young man, Absalom” be treated gently, expressing fatherly care even when dealing with that son’s traitorous uprising.  Those who followed Absalom in rebellion are defeated in a great slaughter, and Absalom is caught in the branches of an oak while seeking escape.  In defiance of David’s wishes, Joab’s men put Absalom to death.  David, when told of Absalom’s death, grieves deeply.

Psalm 130

The psalmist calls to the merciful Lord and waits upon God for forgiveness and redemption.

The Second Lesson                             Ephesians 4:25-5:2

In this lesson Christians are urged to conform to a new way of life which is pleasing to the Holy Spirit.  They are to have a love like the love of Christ.  All manner of evil is to be shunned.  Especially are the new converts to put away spitefulness and other sins which harm the one body and grieve the Spirit with which they have been sealed in baptism.  The model is non other than a God who is revealed in the Christ who sacrificed himself for us.

The Gospel                                       John 6:35, 41-51

In our gospel Jesus continues to teach that he is the true bread who will bring all who have faith in him eternal life.  The discussion is meant to recall the story of the Israelites protesting and murmuring against God in the wilderness because they had no bread.  But even the manna that God gave them was only a temporary food.  While Jesus seems very ordinary to the Jews (who represent a worldly lack of faith), he offers the world both his teaching and himself, a life-giving bread from heaven.

 ELEANORE'S PROJECT

Eleanore’s Project Update

As part of Eleanore’s Project, Sammie Wakefield has received requests for thirty wheelchairs for children in Peru. The North American team has not been able to travel to Peru since 2019 and they will not be able to travel there in 2021. However, the Peruvian therapists continue to work with children at Yancana Huasy who need mobility as well as consultation with their parents on 24 hour postural care. At their request Eleanore’s Project is putting together a container of equipment scheduled to leave Sioux Falls, SD the last week of August.

Sammie has equipment and supplies ready to be boxed on Monday, August 2 and then on Saturday August 7. We still need some extra hands to help on both those days. Please call Sammie to volunteer or have questions about what type of help is needed.

We plan for the Uhaul truck to be in the parking lot at St Andrews on Sunday August 8 and delivered to Manchester on Monday the 9th.  Sammie will be going to Sioux Falls on August 23-26 to join other members of Eleanore’s Project and pick out the rest of the equipment for the container.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Thoreau On "Simplicity" (From Walden)


Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and keep your accounts on your thumb nail…

I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his
dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours…

A single gentle rain makes the grass many shades greener. So our prospects brighten on the influx of better thoughts. We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us. Sometimes, in a summer morning, having taken my accustomed bath, I sat in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in a revery, amidst the pines and hickories and sumacs, in undisturbed solitude and stillness, while the birds sing around or flitted noiseless through the house, until by the sun falling in at my west window, or the noise of some traveler’s wagon on the distant highway, I was reminded of the lapse of time.

                                                           ~ Henry David Thoreau, excerpts from Walden
