In This Issue



The events of Pentecost Day are foretold by Jesus in the first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, just before his Ascension.  We celebrate Pentecost as the inauguration of the Church's mission in the world.  Empowered by the gift of the Holy Spirit, we are to go into our neighborhoods and the wider world - to Jerusalem, to Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth - witnessing to the risen Christ.

The summer of Pentecost bring a great gift: TIME.
  • Time to do the important things that were put off because other seasons were too full to include them.
  • Time to plan ahead and to meet with leaders and teachers for the coming year.
  • Time to involve other leadership, giving church school teachers who have worked through the past year more opportunity for reading, leisure, rest, and prayer.
  • Time to be open at trying new things.
  • Time for fun together as a whole parish or as smaller groups: picnics, cookouts, overnight camping trips, swimming parties, outdoor suppers.
During this long season of Pentecost, transition, and the gift of time, my prayer is that you will treasure your relationships and be open to the Spirit of God's leading.
Keep the Faith,


The vestry is meeting with Augusta Anderson on June 19th to begin the initial steps in forming the search committee

Peace in Christ,

*  Building & Grounds:  Thanks to Phill Wertz and to Jim McCarthy for their work on the shrubbery around the church and the hill to the right of the Family Life Center.   The job is still not done so if you can lend a hand it would be appreciated.  There is a list of items that need attention in the Family Life Center.  Please check and see if you can help.

*  Garden:  If you haven't seen what a great garden we have going, I encourage you to visit it and see what we have going.  For the most part, the garden looks wonderful.  We are struggling to keep grass down between the rows.  Any ideas or help to conquer this problem, is appreciated.

For more information or to register, visit or contact Kathryn Florack at 828-475-9264 or at

*  Credit Card Contributions:  Our treasurer Bruce has researched the use of credit cards for making contributions.  His evaluation is unless there is a number of members that would like to use credit cards to make contributions, it is not a good move economically.  If you are interested, please let Debra or Bruce know.  If there is not enough interest we will not be moving forward on this.  

*  Bible Study :   An Eight Week Study of the Gospel of John is held on Tuesdays at 6:15pm and on Thursdays 10:00 am until 11:00 am. The focus is to provide a rudimentary knowledge of the background and purpose for the Gospel of John. Also, that you may know Christ more intimately and develop a deeper relationship with him.  This class will end July 11, 2019.  Contact: Rev. Alicia.

*  Announcements :  Anyone wanting announcements in the Sunday bulletins or in the weekly emailed newsletters should get them to Debra no later than Wednesday morning. All announcements should be submitted in finished form, exactly as you would like them to appear. Debra cannot rewrite or edit but will simply copy and paste your announcement. Thanks for being prompt and complete, and for making Debra's busy work days a little easier. 

*  Book Group :  New Seeds of Contemplation by Merton is the new book the group, which meets on Wednesday at 10:00 in the Family Life Center, is reading.  This is a great time to join this group and participate in some most interesting discussions.

* Cooking for the Army:  On Saturday, June 29th, parishioners will gather to cook approximately 700 meals for The Salvation Army & Cornerstone Ministry. We are always in need of more hands to assist in this life-giving project since "more hands make light work." If you are interested in this ministry, please contact the church office and we will put your name on the monthly e-mail reminder.

*  Family Promise :  The remaining 2019 dates that we will be host to the Family Promise guests are 7/21 and 11/3. Thank you to all the volunteers who participated in the families recent visit. This ministry would not be possible without you. Family Promise is a community program that provides housing and support to families that are less fortunate. All Saints is one of the original churches that helped establish this ministry more than ten years ago. We host families in this ministry four times a year at our parish facilities with assistance from the Redeemer Lutheran Church here in Gastonia. There are many ways to support this ministry. During hosting weeks we need parishioners to greet and engage guests, to provide homework and enrichment activities for the children, to prepare and serve dinner, and to spend the night.The other way that parishioners can assist these families is to donate items that our guests need. Suggested items to donate are clothes, detergent, toothbrushes and toothpaste, small first aid kits, hair products, soap and/or body wash, suitcases (both used or new), 10, 20, and 30 gallon storage tubs w/ lids, towels and washcloths (both used or new), bed linens (both used or new), family friendly movies or videos, board games, & craft supplies.  For more information, or to volunteer please contact Marc Dudley at 704-718-4044 or

*  Foyers : Small groups are formed who meet socially in each other's home or at restaurants during the year in order to get to know each other better.  From time to time, we all get together and go to plays.  It is time to reorganize our Foyers Groups.  We are in need of group leaders who will coordinate your group's activities.  Please sign up in the Family Life Center if you want to participate in Foyers and indicate if you will be a group leader. 

*  Credit Card Contributions:  Our treasurer Bruce has researched the use of credit cards for making contributions.  His evaluation is unless there is a number of members that would like to use credit cards to make contributions, it is not a good move economically.  If you are interested, please let Debra or Bruce know.  If there is not enough interest we will not be moving forward on this.  

*  About the Prayer List: It is very important for us to have a current and accurate prayer list to include in worship each Sunday. We also know things change. With that in mind, can everyone please look over the prayer list and let Deb know immediately if there are any changes, additions, or removals that need to happen? Thank you!

*  All Saints Office Hours:  Monday through Thursday, 8:30-3:30.  

*  Blessing Bags: The Blessing Bags are a community project and we help with the assembly of the bags, one time per month at St. Marks.  The bags are assembled in less than an hour.  Please continue to donate items noted below and place in tote in entrance to the Family Life Center and take a blessing bag with you to distribute to those in need.  All are invited to participate.

*  A message for our Lectors: Please take a few minutes for your service weeks to look over the readings that come in the Messenger. There are often very difficult names and words that may take a little practice to make you as comfortable as possible. If anyone needs any help with any names or words, please don't hesitate to ask Deacon Martha or Rev Alicia. Any, or all of us are most willing to help in any way we can. Thank you and many blessings.

*  Salvation Army Service Schedule:  Monday, June 10th - Team #2.  (George Sowersby)

*  Shepherd Groups were created to look after each other.  Each shepherd had a list of parishioners to check on when they were not seen in church for a while.  This group needs to be reorganized and is looking for a leader to actively revitalize the group.  If you would like to head up this group, please contact the church office or let Flo McCarthy, the vestry liaison, know. 
*  Adult Christian Formation: Mr. Brett Brown will be our facilitator as we view a video series presentation called "The Fall of the Pagans and the Origins of Medieval Christianity."  Professor Kenneth W. Harl, a scholar on Classical and Byzantine History at Tulane University will be your guide. This is a multi-week study and it is not required to attend every session so do not let vacations and other plans keep you away.

*  2019 Sign Up Sheets:  For Coffee Hour, Altar Guild and Altar Flowers are on the bulletin board in the FLC.  Coffee Hour hosting can be as simple as drinks and cookies.  Coffee hour is provided to have fellowship with our parish family.  Please sign up or call the church office to add your name to the list (704-864-7201).

Director Of Youth Ministry:  We are presently looking to fill the paid part-time position of Youth Minister at All Saints to plan our Sunday School program and to implement EYC.  The job description is posted in the Family Life Center.  If you or someone you know might be interested in this position, please contact the church office.

*  Contributions of Stock: As a result of a suggestion by a member of All Saints, the vestry has approved the opening of a brokerage account with Merrill Lynch. This account will be used to receive gifts to the church made with corporate stock. Tax law permits donations to be made using appreciated stock. The person making the contribution, and who itemizes deductions, can take a tax deduction for the market value of the stock without ever having to pay taxes on the appreciation in the value of the stock. Contributions made with stock can be used to fulfill an individual's pledge or to make a designated offering. If you are interested in learning more, or in making such a contribution, please contact Jim Howard.

*  Latino Ministry Support: Every Thursday our diocesan Latino Minister, The Rev. Miquel Alvarez, will begin meeting at All Saints with a new Latino Episcopal Congregation. They will use our worship space on Thursday evenings between 6:30-8:30 PM. The hope is that 2019 brings them to a place where they will be conducting worship services on Sunday afternoon. This is a ministry of the diocese and we welcome them as their presence makes us all stronger.

The Collect

Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The First Lesson: Acts  2:1-21

W hen the day of Pentecost had come, the disciples were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.

Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each. Amazed and astonished, they asked, "Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs-- in our own languages we hear them speaking about God's deeds of power." All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, "What does this mean?" But others sneered and said, "They are filled with new wine."

But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, "Men of Judea and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say. Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o'clock in the morning. No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

`In the last days it will be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams.
Even upon my slaves, both men and women,
in those days I will pour out my Spirit;
and they shall prophesy.
And I will show portents in the heaven above
and signs on the earth below,
blood, and fire, and smoky mist.
The sun shall be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood,
before the coming of the Lord's great and glorious day.

Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.' "

Psalm 104:25-35, 37

25 O Lord, how manifold are your works! *
in wisdom you have made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
26 Yonder is the great and wide sea
with its living things too many to number, *
creatures both small and great.
27 There move the ships,
and there is that Leviathan, *
which you have made for the sport of it.
28 All of them look to you *
to give them their food in due season.
29 You give it to them; they gather it; *
you open your hand, and they are filled with good things.
30 You hide your face, and they are terrified; *
you take away their breath,
and they die and return to their dust.
31 You send forth your Spirit, and they are created; *
and so you renew the face of the earth.
32 May the glory of the Lord endure for ever; *
may the Lord rejoice in all his works.
33 He looks at the earth and it trembles; *
he touches the mountains and they smoke.
34 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; *
I will praise my God while I have my being.
35 May these words of mine please him; *
I will rejoice in the Lord.
37 Bless the Lord, O my soul. *

The Epistle: Romans 8:14-17

All who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, "Abba! Father!" it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ-- if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

The Gospel:  John 14:8-17

J esus prayed for his disciples, and then he said. "I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

"Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them."
Saint Day / Feast of the Week

Ephrem of Edessa
Deacon, 373

Ephrem of Edessa was a teacher, poet, orator, and defender of the
faith-a voice of Aramaic Christianity, speaking the language Jesus
spoke, using the imagery Jesus used. Edessa, a Syrian city, was a center
for the spread of Christianity in the East long before the conversion of
the western Roman empire.

The Syrians called Ephrem "The Harp of the Holy Spirit," and his
hymns still enrich the liturgies of the Syrian Church. Ephrem was
one whose writings were influential in the development of Church
doctrine. Jerome writes: "I have read in Greek a volume of his
on the Holy Spirit; though it was only a translation, I recognized
therein the sublime genius of the man."Ephrem was born at Nisibis
in Mesopotamia. At eighteen, he was baptized by James, Bishop of
Nisibis. It is believed that Ephrem accompanied James to the famous
Council of Nicaea in 325. He lived at Nisibis until 363, when the
Persians captured the city and drove out the Christians.

Ephrem retired to a cave in the hills above the city of Edessa. There he
wrote most of his spiritual works. He lived on barley bread and dried
herbs, sometimes varied by greens. He drank only water. His clothing
was a mass of patches. But he was not a recluse, and frequently went
to Edessa to preach. Discovering that hymns could be of great value
in support of the true faith, he opposed Gnostic hymns with his own,
sung by a choir of women.

During a famine in 372-373, he distributed food and money to the
poor and organized a sort of ambulance service for the sick. He died
of exhaustion, brought on by his long hours of relief work.

Of his writings, there remain 72 hymns, commentaries on the Old and
New Testaments, and numerous homilies. In his commentary on the
Passion, he wrote: "No one has seen or shall see the things which you
have seen. The Lord himself has become the altar, priest, and bread,
and the chalice of salvation. He alone suffices for all, yet none suffices
for him. He is Altar and Lamb, victim and sacrifice, priest as well as
