The Angel Tree has arrived! While Covid has thrown a lot of curve balls, we are still dedicated to serving the children of the Quad Cities area this Christmas! Starting November 21st, tags will be available before and after each service until they run out, or next weekend (whichever comes first). The gifts will be due back by December 6th. 

New for 2020! If you are unable or uncomfortable coming to the church, you can still be a part of this program. I am posting half of the tags online where you can “pick” from. I hope this is an easy alternative. You can view all of the details and sign up here: https://tinyurl.com/ATsignup2020

If you are uncomfortable shopping in stores, you can still participate! I have elves who would love to shop for you. Financial contributions can be made online or mailed into the church. Please include a note that it is for the Angel Tree (when online choose “Outreach").

Finally, please pray for these families and our program this month. I believe that makes a huge impact on our work. No matter how you choose to participate, your help makes Christmas brighter for a child in our community. Thank you!

The Order of St. Luke                                               
         Twenty years ago, when I was ordained Deacon, my ministry focus was pastoral care, critical needs and grief work. Little did I know that God would broaden and narrow this path as He saw fit, to meet the needs in our world.  As full as my life has been all these years, and all the blessings I have received, I realized that God was calling me to something more in ministry, though I had no idea where he wanted me to be.
         One day I learned that The Revs. Susan and Jim Schubert were planning to start a Chapter at St. Luke's of the Order of St. Luke, ( OSL),
a group dedicated to offering healing prayer in Jesus' name to all who are in need. Rev. Susan is the AZ Director for the Order of St. Luke Healing Communities.
         When I was ordained, I was not comfortable praying out loud, until I learned to trust that these were God's words. That was a life changing moment for me as I learned to trust God to lead me and offer prayer from my heart. Over the years, as clergy, hospital chaplain and numerous other areas I work in, many people have told me how much my prayers helped them with all they were going through. 
         The Order of St. Luke has opened a world to me where, with others, we pray for healing of those in need of it, we share anointing and Holy Communion during our in person meetings. Until we can meet in person, we are meeting monthly via ZOOM. We are forming a strong and supportive community of praying for healing for others.
         During these days of uncertainty, health challenges and disruptions to our normal routines of life, prayer is more important than ever.
Would you be willing to pray about joining us and becoming part of The Order of St. Luke? If you have any questions or would like to talk more about OSL, please contact Susan or Jim Schubert at 928-499-2550 (Jim) 928-308-5942 (Susan).

In peace and with God's love,
Deacon Kimball                                                            November 2020

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 24 (in case we need to order more books) Books can be picked up on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, 9-12 noon.

EfM
Education for Ministry
Is it right for you?
Every baptized person is called to ministry. The EfM program, offered as an education-at-a-distance course by the School of Theology at the University of the South at Sewanee, TN, provides Episcopalians and others with the education to carry out that ministry. This diocese is a sponsoring diocese of the EfM program.

As the Church continues to emphasize the importance of lay ministries, many people feel that they need a theological education that supports their faith and teaches them to express that faith in day-to-day events. EfM is one way for them to gain that knowledge.

EfM is a 4-year course, covering the basic subjects of a theological education: the Hebrew scripture, New Testament, Church history and the study of theological movements in the church. Participants register for one year at a time, meeting weekly in a seminar of 6-12 students with trained mentors. We meet on Thursday evenings from 5:30 – 8:00. (beginning in mid-September). Right now with the Covid issue we will be using Zoom. We did that to finish up in the spring and it worked quite well.

There are weekly assignments to study with the help of resource guides. All years meet together, which leads to very meaningful discussions. (We have 5 participants returning next year for years 2-4.) We really need some 1st year students to round things out!

A recent Tucson graduate had this to say – “EfM is a safe, supportive place to learn, explore new ideas, and wrestle with the big questions in the company of others who are doing the same. You will be welcomed, encouraged, and challenged as you do the readings and participate in weekly discussions. The friendships developed along the way are truly special. A wild ride, but worth every inch!”
 
           If you think EfM might be for you,
please contact Leanne Bryan at (928-713-4014, bryanfamily@cableone.net) or
Kathy Pessin at (928-771-2707, 928-899-0986, jimpes@cableone.net)
We are currently accepting new students for our September start.
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.
.
As some of you may have read in the Daily Courier recently, Yavapai County Community Health Services is conducting a survey to assess how many individuals would be interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine when one becomes available. The link is below.
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.
Don't Spend Christmas Alone Update!
Dear Members of St Luke's,
Due to the COVID-19, and the Diocese restrictions, The Annual Don't Spend Christmas Alone Dinner will not be held this year.
St Luke's needs to follow the guidelines for the safety and wellbeing of our entire congregation and the communities this wonderful tradition has served .
A small gift will be delivered to those homebound or unable to attend worship at this time, will also be given to those in attendance at our Christmas services; which can be picked up following service in the Gathering Hall. This remembrance will serve as a small token of our fellowship and appreciation until we can gather for Don' t Spend
Christmas Alone again next year.
As Father Pierre-Henry has expressed, "we need to be even more cautious than ever, for us, our loved ones and our neighbors".
Holiday blessings to you and your families

Altar Guild Needs YOU!!!
"This is a wonderful time to give back to the church as we forge ahead into our new format for worship at St. Luke's. The Altar Guild is a beautiful, behind the scenes ministry involved in preparing our service areas for worship - setting out everything needed for communion, making sure candles are filled and sanctuary areas are clean and neat, and then cleaning the linens and vessels used during worship after the services. 
If you are interested in serving the church in the Altar Guild,
please contact Robin Borok, Directress, at 928-277-1879 or

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!
