UTO Blue Boxes

Beginning Wednesday, March 6, United Thank Offering Blue Boxes will be available for parishioners to take home.

The United Thank Offering is a program of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church, founded and administered by women since 1889. The UTO mission is to expand the circle of thankful people. Thank offering monies are distributed annually through national and international grants.

This year, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Women are sponsoring this Lenten UTO Blue Box offering, encouraging parish families to use the boxes as part of a spiritual practice of gratitude for Lent and beyond.

Empty boxes will be placed for pick-up at the back of the nave, the chapel entrance, the Goodheart Entrance and the second-floor reception desk. Boxes containing donations are to be returned to the church on Sunday, May 12, when the UTO Spring Ingathering takes place and St. Paul’s gives thanks for the ministry of the ECW.

As a true labyrinth, it offers a single, purposeful pathway, with no dead ends, and can be walked by people of all faiths. Some people pray as they walk, opening their minds and hearts to God’s peace and the presence of the Holy Spirit, while others meditate, as they follow the path to the center and back out again into the world.

Wednesday Supper Series

This year’s Lenten Supper Series focuses on Experiencing the Beauty and Mystery of Holy Week, with gatherings for parishioners of all ages on Wednesdays, March 27, April 3 and 10, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in Colhoun A, led by clergy.

Liturgical expression is one of the great gifts of the Episcopal tradition, and there is no greater experience of this beauty than Holy Week. We participate in services that powerfully show the journey of Jesus to the cross, from Palm Sunday through Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and the Great Vigil of Easter.

As Easter comes only once a year, though, it’s hard to engage with the full breadth of spirituality that these services offer. In this year’s Wednesday Supper Series, we will explore more deeply each of the Holy Week services, including the specific rituals of each service and what these days teach us about Jesus. Join us for an interactive meditation of Holy Week as we prepare for the drama of this climactic season in the church year.

  • March 13 Palm Sunday
  • March 20 Maundy Thursday
  • March 27 Good Friday
  • April 3 The Great Vigil of Easter
  • April 10 The Eucharist

After supper, child care for children three years old and younger will be available in room 107 off the Preschool hallway. Pre-K students through fifth graders will meet in Colhoun B and C after dinner to explore the theme, “Into the Wilderness.” Games, crafts and storytelling will be part of the children’s program.

All five Wednesday night parish gatherings include supper for the whole family from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Programs will be presented from 6:15 to 7:00 p.m. The cost for supper will be $7 for adults and $5 for children younger than 12, with a maximum cost per family of $20.

Faith & Justice March Program

The Faith & Justice Committee’s 2018-19 Lunch and Speaker Series will continue on Thursday, March 28, at 12:15 p.m. in Colhoun A.

The program, “Fierce Conversations About Race and Justice,” will be presented by Nigel Alston, community advocate, motivational speaker and Executive Director of the North Carolina Black Repertory Theater.

Alston will share his insights on race and justice and how conversations that go beyond the superficial level can make a real difference in building relationships. Susan Scott, author of Fierce Conversations, writes that the conversation is the relationship. Conversation that is truly robust, passionate and honest can lead to a cultural transformation in our country today with whites and people of color.

Bring your own lunch. Beverages will be provided. All are welcome.

The Glory of These Forty Days

Dr. Mark Ardrey-Graves, Director of Music for Children and Youth, will teach a class, The Glory of These Forty Days: The Music of Lent and Holy Week, on Sunday, March 31 from 10:15 to 11:00 a.m. in Colhoun A.

There is a unique shift in the way we make and hear music in Lent and Holy Week, perhaps more than any other season of the church year. This class will explore some of the whats and whys of the distinctive flavors of Lenten music in our worship tradition. Plus, come discover the only hymn that The Book of Common Prayer specifically dictates to be used in the liturgy. The answer may surprise you!

Episcopal 101

Episcopal 101 confirmation classes, led by clergy and Director of Youth Ministries Nick VanHorn, will continue throughout Lent on Sunday March 10, 17, 24, 31 and April 7, 10:15 to 11:00 a.m., in the chapel. Confirmation will be Sunday, April 28 at 10:00 a.m.

Open to all, whether a newcomer, teenager or cradle Episcopalian, these classes are a great way to explore the many ways we follow Jesus at St. Paul’s.

Join us if you want to learn more about what it means to be an Episcopalian.

Holy Eucharist, spoken service at the side altar in the nave, 12:00 noon.

Holy Eucharist and Foot Washing, 6:00 p.m. Maundy Thursday’s prayers originate in Christ’s last act of service to others, as Jesus takes on “the very nature of a servant” by washing the disciples’ feet. With a simple last supper, he institutes the Eucharist and instructs the disciples to “love one another as I have loved you.” After the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, the altar and chancel are stripped of vessels and all decorative items as is customary. The service has no real ending as we enter the sacred final three days of Holy Week (Triduum) before Easter. A children’s service will be held in the chapel during the service in the nave. Child care will be provided for infants through four-year-olds in room 107 off the Preschool hallway.

Morning Prayer, 8:15 a.m., chancel area of the nave.

Stations of the Cross, 11:00 a.m. in the nave. As we walk the stations of the cross, moving from images of Jesus’ condemnation to his burial, we pray and meditate on the events of his last day of life on earth. The Way of the Cross imitates the practice of visiting the places of Jesus’ Passion in the Holy Land by early Christian pilgrims.

Good Friday Liturgy 12:00 noon. Following betrayal, arrest, condemnation, beatings and mockery, Jesus carried his cross to Golgotha for death by crucifixion. Afterwards his body was placed in the tomb where it remained through the Sabbath. Good Friday is the day that proclaims God’s drawing of the world to himself in Jesus Christ, redeeming us by his holy cross. We listen to the story of the Passion from John’s Gospel and pray for the needs of all people. Child care will be provided for infants through four-year-olds in room 107 beginning at 10:45 a.m.

The church will be open for prayer from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised for the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.

Saturday, April 20

The Great Vigil of Easter, Lighting of the New Fire, Baptism and Holy Eucharist, 7:00 p.m. We gather in darkness to celebrate the light of Christ’s resurrection. On this day between the crucifixion and the resurrection, Jesus’ body rested in the tomb. It is the day of watchful expectation, in which mourning is being transformed into joy. We kindle a new fire, symbolizing our eternal life in Christ, from which we light the Paschal candle, representing Christ, the light of the world. We celebrate Holy Baptism (Easter was the primary baptismal day for the early Christians), and celebrate the first Holy Eucharist of Easter.

Easter Day

Jesus Christ is risen today! Alleluia!

Sunday, April 21

Festival Holy Eucharist 7:00, 9:00 and 11:15 a.m. in the nave

In these days with cries of “fake news” and an increasing awareness of our biases, do the methods of innocence clinics provide effective means of determining “what happened?”  What are the lessons of the more than 2,300 exonerations of innocent people wrongfully convicted by U.S. courts?  Is there hope?

The United Thank Offering is an Episcopal Church Women’s ministry that is more than 100 years old. It directly supports our goal to be a missionary diocese. Twice a year, St. Paul’s ECW collects our offerings and sends them to the UTO diocesan chairman. A presentation is then made to the National Church where a select committee considers the many requests that have been received from both at home and abroad. We are especially proud that St. Paul’s is consistently among the largest UTO contributors in our diocese.

Let us show our thankfulness for all God has done for us by sharing our blessings with others. Please return the blue envelope with your gift on Sunday, May 12, or consider making a donation by mail.

The Path Between Us

Most of us have no idea that others do not see as we see, nor do they process their experiences in the same way we do.  That fact is especially crucial in relationships with partners, with friends or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in others―and in ourselves.  The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships by Suzanne Stabile guides readers into deeper insights about themselves, their personality types and others’ so that we can have healthier relationships.

This book is the text for a class, Relationships and the Enneagram, taught by the Rev. Sara C. Ardrey-Graves.

St. Paul’s Bookshop is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

New in St. Paul’s Bookshop

Living the Way of Love by Mary Bea Sullivan offers forty brief reflections about the seven Jesus-centered practices identified by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry in “The Way of Love” initiative.

Sullivan tells stories from her own and others’ experiences as a starting point for discussion about how to seek and find a deeper connection to God. Rotating through each practice so that each is covered once a week, going deeper into the practice throughout the forty days, each reflection ends with questions designed to spur further discussion and assist readers in making the practices their own. Perfect for using as a Lenten devotional or at any time of the year.

New in St. Paul’s Bookshop

While the Advent season is filled with fun and expectations, Lent can be hard for children with its travels through frightening places, loaded with themes of self-denial and death. How can children approach this season in a way that is meaningful and not frightening?

Make Room; A Child’s Guide to Lent and Easter by Laura Alary presents Lent as a special time for creating a welcoming space for God. Other books offer excellent ideas for going through the Lenten season with children, but Make Room uniquely connects its projects to the story of Jesus.

Simple and practical activities such as baking bread, having a neighbor over for dinner, uncluttering your room and watching less TV become acts of justice and kindness, part of a life of following and imitating Christ and a way to make room for God in our lives and in the world around us. Make Room invites children to wonder about the story, to encounter Lent with all their senses, and to experience activities in Lent as part of a life of discipleship.

St. Paul’s Bookshop is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.
