Message from the Rev. Fred Meade

A Sunday School teacher asked the children in her class: "How many of you would like to go to heaven?" All of the children raised a hand except one little guy named Derrick. When the teacher asked him why he didn't want to go to heaven, he said, "I'm sorry Mrs. Smith, but my Mommy told me to come home right after church."

Well, like that little boy, heaven is still a desire and a dream for most Americans. 77% of Americans believe in heaven, and 76% of Americans believe their chances of getting there are "good or excellent."
Now there are still some people who either don't believe in heaven or don't care to go there even if there is one. The psychologist, Sigmund Freud, said, "heaven was a human fantasy rooted in man's instinct for self preservation."

From my perspective Freud should have stuck with psychology and not theology. However I can probably count on three fingers the number of times on a Sunday morning that I have talked about what happens after we die... We call it heaven. More often that not we might refer to it is as a kind of joke. But the subject of heaven does come up.

How often have you heard a conversation that went something like "I know your getting into heaven and the other individual will so something like I'm not so sure about that." Then there is often nervous laughter that follows after that.

Part of that nervousness laughter about heaven is because many people live with guilt. Guilt has an unfortunate way of eroding our self esteem and self confidence. Somehow we may think that if we have guilt inside we will never get into heaven. That would probably take care of most of us huh?

Jesus said "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house there are many rooms. I go to prepare a place for you and will come again and take you to myself. So that where I am, you may be also."

That's where I am placing my bet. Belief in heaven is an act of faith. In the here and now we can choose to believe that there is a heaven. I have on many occasions experienced God's Love in this life and I have no doubt that it will continue when I pass from this life on to the next.

Yes, Freud was wrong, and Eric Clapton was right " There will be no more tears in heaven." For that,  I am very grateful.
 
Blessings,
Rev. Fred
Christian Education                   May 2018

HCC family and friends,       
 
We have begun our study into reconciliation; we have considered reconciliation with God's earth and also with our neighbors. We welcome you to join some of us in the study of one book Pete is exploring while he is away on sabbatical - "Radical Reconciliation: Beyond Political Pietism and Christian Quietism" by Allan Aubrey Boesak & Curtiss Paul DeYoung. As we discussed in worship today, this call to reconciliation is anything but simple and relates to our whole selves. How might we go even deeper with our God this spring to move into the world with hands and feet who do not just serve but name the belovedness of each person we encounter? Such naming and care for neighbor is but one part of reconciliation. Rev. Fred and I are going to try to plan a book study for this piece that will take place during the month of June. Please email Fred or me if you are interested.  

We still have one more film screening this spring which relates to the justice issue our kids have voiced the most passion around - gun violence.
 
On May 6th at 6:30 pm we will host a screening of Making a Killing: Guns, Green, and the NRA. Learn more about this movie at: https://www.bravenewfilms.org/making_a_killing_guns 
After this film, we will take time to think about how our faith intersects with this important topic. If you are an adult in our community, please know that this is THE topic the confirmands (9th grade youth mostly) feel most strongly about; let's be led by the young visionaries of our community. Evite here:
 
Our annual lobster roll sale is coming right up - we look forward to bringing these delicious rolls to YOUR kitchen counter, table, or office! Please keep in mind that we really appreciate all orders and if you are able to advertise our sale at your place of work or even buy rolls for folks who work with you, this is huge financial support to our youth each year.
 
SAVE THE DATE FOR VBS - July 30th - August 3rd - Exploring Jungles and Jesus: Faithful Stories - registration is up on our church website. While our theme is sure to be a hoot and a half, our theological (or talk about God) focus will be on the parables! We hope to see the young people in your family this year and friends are always welcome.  
 
We are always in need of shepherds; shepherds are folks who assist teachers in church school (no education experience needed).
Sign up at: http://signup.com/go/PgsxgTD  These folks are also background checked through the CORI system - if you need an update on your check, we will send you an email. If you want to help and need to submit paperwork, follow this link from our church website:  http://hccucc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/CORI-REQUEST-2015-2016.pdf. 
 
The invitation to High Schoolers to help with church school remains open; ask Sara for details. This can be a great way for HS youth to gain experience working with people of all ages - the children and youth as well as the adults who are teaching and shepherding. (These could also be volunteer hours as required by most High Schools.) Let Sara know if someone in your family may be interested.
 
Please let me know of any questions or concerns. I am so enjoying my additional leadership roles while Pete is away and I thank you for the important opportunity.

A Note from Our Moderator
 
Civil Discourse

The annual meeting of Hingham Congregational Church is fast approaching on Sunday, May 20th, beginning at 11:30 am in the sanctuary. Each year, this meeting provides a focal point for the church's boards and committees to submit reports on progress and activities of the past year. Many years, the annual meeting also addresses one or more special issues of interest, often requiring the congregation to discuss and ultimately vote on how to address the issue(s) at hand.
This year's meeting agenda includes two such issues, each representing the culmination of study and research by separate ad hoc committees of dedicated HCC participants. The first of these concerns the disposition of proceeds from the sale of the Rust House property, which was originally bequeathed to the church in the 1980s and has since served as a group home, as it does today. The second focuses on a new policy for use of the church building itself, including our newly renovated space, when individuals, families, church-related or outside groups seek to host an event at the church. The facility use policy includes a recommendation for the service and consumption of alcohol in the church building.
In each case, an intentional effort has been made to provide information to the HCC community about these issues in advance. With regard to the Rust House sale, an information session, led by committee chair David von Loesecke, was held on April 29th in the sanctuary after worship. The information will be presented again at the annual meeting on May 20th, when any further questions will be addressed and a full discussion will be encouraged. Regarding the facility use policy, please be sure to pay special attention to the notices in This Week at HCC and the worship bulletin, as well as in this edition of Horizons. Kathi Blair, chair of the facility use committee, has provided a summary and the links to the documents that have been created to support the facility use policy. Again, the information will be presented at the annual meeting on May 20th, when questions and discussion will be encouraged, especially with regard to the implementation of the alcohol use policy.
I am sure that there will be a diversity of views regarding how the church should proceed with regard to each of these issues, and I welcome the opportunity to moderate the civil discourse that is our tradition. I invite everyone in the HCC community to come to the annual meeting after worship on May 20th, listen to the information that is being shared, ask any questions that may arise, express opinions as the spirit may move, and ultimately join in the collective decision-making process. We are a congregational church, and the annual meeting every year is often the best example of what that means. I hope to see you there.
Thank you!

With blessings,
Tod d                                                                                                                           
 
CALL TO MEETING
 
 
To the Members of the Hingham Congregational Church:
 
In accordance with Article VI, section 2 of the Bylaws, the members of the Hingham Congregational Church are hereby notified that the Congregational Annual Meeting of the Church will take place on Sunday, May 20, 2018, in the sanctuary of the church immediately following the 10:00 a.m. worship service for the following purposes:

  2. To hear and vote on the slate of officers, Boards and Committees presented by the Nominating Committee and endorsed by the Executive Council, these to take effect at the conclusion of the meeting;
  3. To discuss the disposition of Rust House sale proceeds
  4. To discuss the proposed facilities use recommendation, including the proposed policy regarding alcohol service and consumption.
  5. To transact any other business that may properly come before the meeting.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW FACILITIES USE POLICY
INCLUDING ALCOHOL USE GUIDELINES
 
As HCC adjusts to our new building, we are working out ways to share our facility with the community. During the visioning, design and construction phases of the project, we committed ourselves to making our new facility available to others for use. As such, the Executive Council formed a task force to put together a new "Facilities Use Policy".
 
This task force worked throughout the winter to determine what would be the best practices for our church. We researched other comparable facilities in the area, (churches, community centers, etc.). We also discussed and discerned what we felt would be a good working set of policies for HCC's needs and desires to share, but protect, our updated church.
 
The new documents outlining the proposed policies have been recommended by the task force, (Todd Anderson, Kathi Blair, Lynn Mayo, John Pint, Barbara McGovern, Kurt Nilsen, Rev. Pete Allen, Sara Holland, and Wil Exantus). The policy has also been approved by the Board of Trustees and is currently in the review process with Executive Council.
 
Of note, we'd like to bring your attention to a new alcohol policy that we are recommending. In preparation for the Annual Meeting on May 20th, we'd like to make sure the congregation is aware of what we are proposing.
 
In the past, our previous Facility Use Policy prohibited the use of alcohol on the church property. This was not a church by-law, only a policy written many years ago. However, we acknowledge the significance of this change, and believe it important for all church members to have an opportunity to review and vote on the change. The Hale Fellowship Hall is now a room that can accommodate many different types of functions, unlike our old fellowship hall. In order to present this option for fundraisers, small wedding receptions, or even HCC social events, we determined it advisable to allow alcohol to be served. All events would have to go through the process of being approved by the Board of Trustees, which is committed to the safety and well-being of the church, our facilities and most of all our church members.
 
In the course of our discernment we settled on the following policy:
 
  1. The sale of alcoholic beverages is prohibited. However, alcoholic beverages (beer and wine only) may be served in moderation by special permission from Hingham Congregational Church.
  2. If the event is a fundraiser, the event will be subject to Hingham Board of Health conditions. A one-day liquor license is required and must be obtained from the Hingham Board of Selectmen. The form can be found at https://www.hingham-ma.gov/DocumentCenter/View/5010. Proof of the license and town approval must be presented to the church office before approval of the event by Hingham Congregational Church. All requirements for serving alcohol at a Fundraiser in Hingham may be obtained by contacting the Town of Hingham

Rev. Dr. Ned Allyn Parker to Guest Preach
Sunday, May 6

We are very fortunate to welcome a special guest preacher during our worship service on Sunday, May 6th. Rev. Dr. Ned Allyn Parker is the Alumni/ae and Development Officer for Andover Newton Seminary at Yale, previously known as Andover Newton Theological School. He will be traveling up from New Haven, CT to be with us and to share in our Mission Sunday Celebration.
 
            Ned received his BA from Hampshire College, his MDiv from Andover Newton ('10), and his DMin from Seattle University. The title of his doctoral project was Preaching to Belong: The Practice of Narrative Preaching as an Indicator of Authenticity in the Postmodern Church. He arrived in New Haven after serving in ministry in Seattle, Washington, where he was one of the pastors at Seattle First Baptist Church in the downtown neighborhood of First Hill. During his time at SFBC, he worked to develop and foster a welcoming intergenerational community. Much of his focus in the congregation involved social justice and interfaith work. Ned has been committed to nurturing the intersection of faith and higher education for many years. He was a residence director and multi-faith chaplain at Hampshire College and the University of Massachusetts. He also worked in student life at Andover Newton and was serving as the Associate Director of Recruiting, Student Services, and Retention at the time of his departure for Seattle in 2010. In this role, he performed outreach with churches and prospective students, while simultaneously developing space for community interaction around various issues.
 
            Please join us for this special Sunday event (Mission Sunday), as we welcome Rev. Ned and other organizations that HCC supports.

Don't miss out on HCC Youth's  
Famous Lobster Rolls on May 23rd!  
 
Be sure to order yours Today!  Orders may be placed in Hale Fellowship Hall following the service. Look for the smiling youth at tables ready to help. An interactive order form is also posted on the HCC website.  
 
Each lobster roll comes with with a complete lunch which includes an all-premium Maine Lobster (no fillers) roll, a bag of potato chips and a home-style cookie. Free delivery for orders of 6 or more. Please place all orders by  Wednesday, May 16th. 
 
This sale is a fundraiser for the teens and adults participating in the July service trip. They will spend 7 days painting, roofing, and repairing homes of financially challenged and elderly families in West Virginia. Each participant must help fund the cost of supplies for the work they will perform and the lobster roll sale is a large contributor to the costs for the program. Please treat yourself (and others) and support a very worthy cause. Thank you! 





Taste of Hingham was started in 2004 in response to a vision of celebrating and building awareness of all that Hingham has to offer, and simultaneously using the proceeds to benefit over 15 South Shore non-profit organizations. The Hingham Congregational Church, the Hingham Downtown Association and Eat Well, Inc sponsor Taste of Hingham.
Taste of Hingham has been enormously successful with both goals. In addition, thanks to the many who showcase during the "street fair," Taste of Hingham attracts approximately 3,000 visitors who celebrate Hingham, and enjoy music, art projects for kids, horse-drawn hayrides and many more ways to have a fun afternoon with family and friends.
The Taste of Hingham has raised more than $200,000.00 for local South Shore non-profit organizations.
Over 30 of Hingham's finest restaurants and food purveyors offered samples of their very best offerings last year. The crowds love this opportunity to taste a little bit of every thing from across Town, and to then cast votes for:
'Hingham's Favorite Chowder or Soup'
'Entrée of the Year'
'Hingham's Appetizer'
'Sandwich / Burgers/ Pizza'
'Vegetarian Delight' 
 'Baked Sweet Treats'
'Hingham's Favorite  Desserts'
100% of the proceeds from the event are distributed to non-profit organizations by the Board of Outreach of the Hingham Congregational Church.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR TASTE OF HINGHAM TICKET SALES
We need adult and teenager volunteers to help with ticket sales at the TOH on Saturday May 19th on lower Main Street from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM.  We need to fill three (3) one-hour shifts (14 persons per shift) for three (3) locations on lower Main Street. It is a good time and creates good feelings that radiate from the experience of participating in an event that benefits many local charities and people less fortunate. Please call or email Grant Pattison at 617-877-5017 or Grant.pattison @cathaybank.com. Thanks so much.

Pine Street Inn
May 21   
 
Help, Hope, and Home: Those three words describe the Pine Street Inn's mission to end homelessness. For over thirty years, HCC has provided an evening meal on the third Monday of each month to women at the Pine Street Inn in Boston. HCC's outreach to the Pine Street Inn provides multiple opportunities for our congregation to be a part of moving men and women beyond homelessness to long-term stability and success.  
  • Kitchen help is needed at 8:00 AM on third Monday of each month (May 21) for meal preparation. The meal is prepared in our renovated church kitchen at 8:00 AM. Please contact Marcia Sinclair ( marbensin@gmail.com) if you would like to help make a delicious dinner for 100 women in less than an hour.
  • Driver/servers are needed to take the food from HCC to Pine Street Inn and to serve the meal. Please contact Caroline Gibson (cgibson.gb@gmail.com) if you would like to participate in the life-changing experience that occurs when you serve a warm meal to the women at Pine Street Inn.
  • Got Cookies? Got Brownies? Got Desserts? Please mark your calendar and bring donated desserts to HCC on Sunday morning, May 20 or Monday, May 21, by 9:00 AM (Labelled - Pine Street Inn).   Since we resumed making the meal in our renovated kitchen in October, we have not had an adequate supply of dessert donations. Please help!

HCC is a Welcoming Church:
 
Hospitality in a Growing Church:
 
Why develop hospitality? An attitude of friendliness and warmth toward visitors helps a church to grow. Visitors come to a church to try it out. They have a variety of reasons and a diversity of backgrounds. What happens to them from the time they first arrive to the time they leave will determine how well that church embodies Jesus' commission to reach out and make disciples. The inspiring quality of the sermon and the worship service are crucial. The warmth and friendliness of the congregation, however, account for more than half of the reasons why visitors return. When new members are asked, "Why did you choose to join this church?" the most common replies are, "We tried several churches but this one had the friendliest people," or "On our first visit we felt as if we were part of the church community." All of us at HCC practice hospitality when we reach out to welcome others, wear our nametags, pass the friendship pads along our pews, greet new friends during coffee hours and invite them to participate in all that HCC has to offer. Let's continue to make HCC a warm and friendly place to be!
