The Rev. Pierre-Henry Buisson
Dear People of St Luke’s,

Like many of you, I’m following the statistics and numbers about Covid-19 in our Country, State, and County. It’s pretty clear that we are on a bad trend at this time. Unfortunately, the numbers of cases are increased by the day in our county. And I just learned today that two of our parishioners, who have not been able to attend church yet, have contracted Covid-19. Yavapai County has far more cases than when we made the decision to close the church in March. The difference is that we have learned how to live with Covid-19: we wear masks, we practice social distance, and we wash our hands more often. 

That being said, this trend is worrisome, and we need to be even more cautious than ever, for us, our loved ones and our neighbors. We cannot lower our guard, especially when we are so close to Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas. 

For us at St Luke’s, that means we have to follow very strictly the guidelines we sent to the diocese for reopening: 
  • We wear masks covering our mouth and nose at all times, except when we receive communion. 
  • Readers, gospeller, celebrant wear a mask when reading and celebrating
  • Up to 4 masked cantors or singers can sing during the service if they are at least 20 feet from the congregation (the clergy and the congregation are invited to listen)
  • We can not have more than 50 persons at a time in the church for services.

This is inconvenient, this is far from ideal, I know, but this is the price to pray to safely worship, and to keep worshipping as the numbers of Covid-19 cases are increasing in our community. I’m confident that this too shall pass. I look with expectation to this blessed day when we will gather together without restriction. I look for the joyful day when the choir and the congregation will praise the Lord with all their heart and loud voices! I look for this day when we will all share again the Body and Blood of Christ at the altar rail. But for now, we are invited to be patient and to realize that we still have the privilege to worship together in-person and that our services are live-streamed for those who can not join us. In so many churches all around the country many brothers and sisters in Christ, from various confessions, have not been able to worship in person since last March.

I’m keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Please stay safe, and help us to keep St Luke’s as safe as possible.

May the Lord bless you.
Pierre-Henry

Parable of the Talents (super cute - kids are the actors!!)

A Stewardship Litany            
Let us pray for the wisdom and courage to make stewardship a way of life with God.

Because of our faith in You, 0 Lord, we acknowledge You as the source of all that we have and all that we are.

Help us to place You, our loving Creator, first in our lives, by becoming more prayerful and more focused on loving and caring for our families and our neighbors in need, and by becoming less preoccupied with material things.

Help us, Lord, to find the true source of happiness and fulfillment that we all seek, and that You, alone, can provide.

Help us to hear Your call to be good stewards of all Your gifts…by sharing them for Your purposes.

Help us make Your priorities…our priorities.

Help us challenge each other, as disciples of Jesus Christ, to put our faith into action.

Let us pray that as good stewards we will plan our sharing. As we plan the things in our lives that are most important to us, Lord, help us plan our sharing of time with those in need.

Help us plan how to '"give back" the talents with which we have been blessed.

Help us plan how to share our treasure to do Your work.

Our planning and sharing demonstrates the great importance that You and the truth of the Gospel has in our lives.

Help us plan to serve our church, our community, and our world with Your Gifts.

Let us pray that we will share in proportion to what has been given us. Help us, Lord, return a portion of all You have given us.

We do this, 0 Lord, as a sign of our love, and in thanksgiving for the many blessings we have received.

We offer not only the "first fruits" of our financial resources, but a generous portion of our time and talents as well.

Giving proportionately means it is equal for all of us, according to what You have given us. You ask the same of each of us.

As we give proportionately help us to put our trust, security and faith in You. 

As good Christian Stewards, we pray we have a joyful spirit of mind and heart. Amen.

Fear of vaccines: the whys & why nots
by Julie M. Cargill, A.N.P., G.N.P., retired
A recently overheard conversation suggesting that a possible COVID-19 vaccination might be beneficial left me wondering about our societal mindset regarding vaccines in general and a COVID-19 vaccine specifically. That particular discussion centered around one person’s self-imposed isolation at home due to her fear of contracting COVID-19. When she was comforted with the eventual probability that a vaccine could soon become available, she emphatically stated she would never receive any vaccination, abruptly ending THAT conversation!

Despite the energy and focus on working toward an effective vaccine--one that may be approved by the FDA as early as January, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, there seems to be some general resistance to its efficacy and/or fear of side effects. As I considered what people may believe about vaccinations, I decided to see what information is available about responses to those beliefs and fear. 

In my community theater volunteer work, I have interacted with many parents and children involved in local productions. Although 25 inoculations are recommended for children in the first 15 months of life, some parents have avoided all or many of the childhood vaccinations for their children.

Following are the most common reasons I’ve heard and read about for avoiding vaccines, and the responses I see in reviewing online literature. I will start with the flu vaccine, and go on to mostly pediatric vaccines.

·       I always get the flu from a flu vaccine. Response from reviewing websites:  This isn’t possible. The flu vaccine is made from an inactivated form of the influenza virus or virus components that can’t cause infection. Some individuals do experience side effects that will typically go away in a day or so. These include low-grade fever, swollen, red, tender area around the injection site, chills or headache. Every winter, the influenza virus causes epidemics of flu in communities throughout the country. This year may be especially burdensome due to the COVID-19 pandemic happening at the same time.

·       Vaccines cause many harmful side effects, illnesses, and even death - not to mention possible long-term effects we don't even know about. Response from reviewing websites:  The debate began in 1998 when British researchers published a paper stating that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccination caused autism. This was a review of twelve children diagnosed with autism who were found to have all received the MMR vaccination. Further reviews and repeat studies failed to show a cause-effect relationship between the two variables, and the authors retracted the study report. No other such cause-effect studies have supported this conclusion.  The paper’s findings led other doctors to do their own research into the link between vaccine and autism. A child is far more likely to be seriously injured by one of these diseases than by a vaccine. While any serious injury or death caused by vaccines is too many, it is also clear that the benefits of vaccination greatly outweigh the slight risk, and that many, many more injuries and deaths would occur without vaccinations.  
·       There are "hot lots" of vaccine that have been associated with more adverse events and deaths than others. Parents should find the numbers of these lots and not allow their children to receive vaccines from them. Response from reviewing websites: Most routine childhood vaccines are effective for 85% to 95% of recipients. In a country such as the United States, the people who have been vaccinated vastly outnumber those who have not. “Adverse” effects are recorded in all test participants. (See last month’s article on vaccination development and quality control.) These are effects that happen after a drug is administered, and so not necessarily specifically related to the vaccine other than timeline. If the number and type of adverse event reports for a particular vaccine lot suggest that it was associated with more serious adverse events than are expected by chance, the U.S. and many other countries have a system which results in the lot being recalled. All vaccines purchased through the UNICEF vaccine procurement system meet World Health Organization standards for safety and quality control of production.
·       Vaccine-preventable diseases have been virtually eliminated from my country, so there is no need for my child to be vaccinated. Response from reviewing websites:   It is true that vaccinations have enabled us to reduce most vaccine-preventable diseases to very low levels in many countries; however, some of them are still quite prevalent in other parts of the world. As well, there is a small number of people who cannot be vaccinated (because of severe allergies to vaccine components), for example), and a small percentage of people don't respond to vaccines. These people are susceptible to disease, and their only hope of protection is that people around them are immune and cannot pass the disease on to them.
·       "Diseases had already begun to disappear before vaccines were introduced, because of better hygiene and sanitation". Response from reviewing websites:  There have been periodic peaks and valleys throughout the years, but the real, permanent drop in measles incidence coincided with the licensure and wide use of measles vaccine beginning in 1963. And similarly with Haemophiles influenzae type b pediatric vaccine and pertussis (whooping cough).
·       "Giving a child multiple vaccinations for different diseases at the same time increases the risk of harmful side effects and can overload the immune system". Response from reviewing websites:  A number of studies and reviews have been conducted to examine the effects of giving various combinations of vaccines simultaneously. These studies have shown that the recommended vaccines are as effective in combination as they are individually, and that such combinations carry no greater risk for adverse side effects. Research is presently under way to find ways to combine more antigens in a single vaccine injection--for example, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) and chickenpox. With combinations such as this, there is an added advantage of ensuring there are less missed opportunities to complete the recommended vaccinations for a child.
 
I believe that the multiple sources of information we can access can cause such confusion and hesitancy. It is very easy on the internet to find questionable recommendations, and sometimes these are not easily sorted out.  Sometimes people seek information from a source they hope will validate their suspicions. Always, my suggestion is to seek information from medically sound and respected sources.

From Bishop Reddall's November 12 Epistle: COVID Updates

My heart sank when I saw the new cases of COVID-19 in Arizona on Tuesday morning. 3,434 cases in a single day. One more notch in making the curve of new cases increase. Looking at the epi-curve of case counts in Arizona, we are now in the same place we were in mid-June.

Our churches are in a different place than they were in mid-June. We were firmly in Phase I then, and our public worship was all online. Now many of our congregations are gathering for in-person worship under the Phase II guidelines. Some congregations, noting the rise in cases, are choosing to transition back to online worship. Others are continuing in person under the Phase II guidelines.

It is not my intention to pull us back to Phase I as a diocese unless the State of Arizona restricts public gatherings again, or we begin to see that our churches are sites for virus transmission. If either of those occur, it is possible we might move back to Phase I. I want to remind you, however, that because Phase I now includes outdoor worship, even if we were forced to move back to Phase I, our congregations could still continue to worship together outdoors.
It is not necessarily safe to continue as we are. I encourage all of our congregations to move their worship outdoors if at all possible. That is the safest option for worship.

If that is not possible, abbreviate your services indoors. Limit the amount of time the congregation spends inside, and ventilate your space as much as possible.

And pay attention to the case counts in your county. Right now, Graham, Coconino, and Gila counties have much higher rates of the virus than most other counties. Congregations in those counties in particular may find it wise to move outdoors or online again.

Wear a mask. Love your neighbor. Limit your activities. Pray for an effective vaccine that is available to all as soon as possible. This will end, but it will not be soon, and we value the lives of our members and our communities, our health care workers, and those who are most vulnerable to this virus.
St. Luke’s parishioners pray weekly for Amagoro Junior Academy and Bishop Zak at our services.

We have many new communicants who are possibly unaware of the partnership St. Lukes’s has with the school and Bishop Zakayo Iteba Epusi in the Anglican Diocese of Katwana in Amagoro, Kenya. This partnership started in 2013 when the Vestry decided to expand the Outreach Commission ministries to include an International Outreach along with a Native American Outreach.

Amagoro Junior Academy is an Episcopal school in Diocese of Katwana with 300 students. The school is in one of the poorest areas of Africa and near the Uganda boarder. Many students are orphans and come from the poorest of poor families. The teenage boys and girls board at the school sleeping on mats in the classrooms. The younger students return home to their families at the end of the school day. Bishop Zak has done a tremendous job in growing the Academy from a few classrooms to adding a 3 story building (still in progress) which will house a dormitory, staff room, library, computer lab and two classrooms.

St. Luke’s involvement in the past has been:
·       St. Luke’s did a special fund raising for 4 classroom donating $14,000.
·       Provided a yearly Grant of $2500.
·       Provided emergency funding of $1520. this year for basic needs such as large water containers, hand sanitizer, facial masks, thermometers, and hand soap in order to open up the school during Covid-19 as per requirement of the Health Ministry.

The Academy was recently inspected by the Health Ministry. The Ministry required that the Academy provide additional classroom space with 2 tents at the cost of $1200.00 each. 
St Luke's received two generous donations made to Outreach for this cause,
so we were able to give Bishop Zak the $2400.00 needed to open the Academy.
Greetings!

St. Luke's will be hosting the blood drive on December 3 from 10 am to 2 pm in the Parish Hall. I hope this finds you well and that you are willing and able to donate. Your blood is greatly needed. Please consider signing up today.

*Please do not donate blood if you are not feeling well. Blood donors are not tested for COVID-19 but temperatures will be taken at check-in. Those with temperatures higher than 99.5 are not allowed to donate or stay at the site. Safe social distancing will be practiced.

*Please bring your mask as they are required.

I look forward to seeing you soon,

An Advent Book Study
“The tale of Ebenezer Scrooge was first published in 1843. Charles Dickens originally wrote A CHRISTMAS CAROL to revive the joyful traditions of Christmas and the celebration of the yuletide, since Cromwell’s Puritan revolution in England had prohibited any rites or practices deemed “pagan.” The story of the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge is a meaningful story for all people of faith as the themes encompassed within the story include hope, redemption, transformation, the work of the Spirit, and the Christian life. Each of the 4 sections (or staves, in keeping with the carol/song metaphor) includes a well-known Christmas carol, Opening and Closing prayer, Scripture reading, and Discussion prompts. All of these staves coincide with the four weeks of Advent!”

The book, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, will be studied over 3 Wednesdays beginning December 2 and continuing December 9 and 16
and Tuesday, December 22 via ZOOM. The start time is 6:30pm for approximately 1 hour. There are limited copies available so it is necessary to sign up online or by calling Brenda Schwartz at 928.379.1441 or Lauree Birchmeier at the church 928-778-4499. There will be one book per registered household at a cost of $10.00. We will need your name and Email address (for ZOOM) along with your payment. Deadline for sign-up is November 17 (in case we need to order more books) Books can be picked up on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, 9-12 noon.

News from the Pronghorn Ranch Knit & Crochet Ministry
100 hats were delivered on October 2, 2020 to the Blackfeet Tribe in northwest Montana
per a community request.
Yarn for this ongoing effort was purchased with Outreach Funds in November 2019.

The hats were made this year by members of the Pronghorn Ranch Knit & Crochet Ministry.

One hundred children's fleece hats were picked up by a representative of
NEEP Uganda [National’s Efforts to Eradicate Poverty in Uganda]
in anticipation of Mission trip efforts in early December.

St. Luke's Outreach grant program supported this ministry in 2020 with funds directed toward a livestock program at the school.
Funds for the fabric were allotted in 2019/2020
and hats were sewn by Judy Deardorff (Colorado) and Carol Covert (Arizona).
Photo of the children wearing the hats was taken in 2019 when the same effort was undertaken.
For information about this ministry, see their website http://neepuganda.org/

Thank you to Carol Covert & the PRKCM for all of their hard work making these items for
those in need!
