Fifth Anniversary of Reverend Ryan's Installation

July 15 th
Newman installation
Can you believe that Fr. Ryan and Dr. Erin have already been with us for 5 years? Time certainly flies when you are having fun! Our church and the wider community have truly been blessed - and I hope we are blessed for many more years to come!

It has been a long time (more than 30 years) since we have been able to celebrate this particular milestone in our parish life – 5 years with the same minister. You have to go back to Fr. Bob Walden’s time. He was the minister for about 20 years and would have celebrated his 5 th anniversary in the early 1980’s.

So, please join us at the Aloha Hour following the 9:30 service on Sunday, July 15 th as we celebrate this truly special occasion - the 5 th anniversary of Rev. Ryan’s installation as Rector of All Saints’ Church.  

This will be a typical All Saints’ pot luck so please bring a dish to share. The Hospitality Ministry will also be providing some of Rev. Ryan’s favorite dishes. What are his favorite dishes?

Sorry - you have to be there to find out! (Spoiler alert - "Do the Dew")

Stay tuned for details of the next extra special event on  July 29 th !

Deputies Agree With Bishops on New Plan For Liturgical and Prayer Book Revision

By Melodie Woerman

[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] In an overwhelming voice vote, the House of Deputies on July 11 concurred with a plan for liturgical and prayer book revision that had been adopted by the House of Bishops the day  before .
This sets the stage for creation of new liturgical texts to respond to the needs of Episcopalians across the church while continuing to use the Book of Common Prayer that was adopted in 1979.
Resolution A068  originally called for the start of a process that would lead to a fully revised prayer book in 2030. The bishops instead adopted a plan for “liturgical and prayer book revision for the future of God’s mission through the Episcopal branch of the Jesus movement.”
The bishops’ amended resolution calls for bishops to engage worshipping communities in their dioceses in experimentation and creation of alternative liturgical texts that they will submit to a new Task Force on Liturgical and Prayer Book Revision to be appointed by the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies.
It also says that liturgical revision will utilize inclusive and expansive language and imagery for humanity and divinity, and will incorporate understanding, appreciation and care of God’s creation.
The Very Rev. Sam Candler, deputy from Atlanta and one of the chairs of the committee that considered the original version of A068, asked the House of Deputies to  concur  with the action of the House of Bishops. He acknowledged that doing so would not give deputies everything they had wanted when they had voted on July 7 for expanded prayer book revision in the original A068.
Candler said that deputies were proud to have sent a “strong and vigorous resolution on revision of the Book of Common Prayer” to the House of Bishops and that they “heard us and responded with a process for prayer book and liturgical revision.” Concurring with the bishops would “move the process forward,” he said. “The church is always reforming,” he added. “Our prayer is always reforming. We are excited to be part of that.”
One line in the bishop’s proposal prompted questions in the House of Deputies. The resolution “memorializes” the 1979 Book of Common Prayer “as a prayer book of the church preserving the psalter, liturgies, the Lambeth Quadrilateral, Historic Documents, and [its] Trinitarian Formularies.”
Deputies asked what was meant by the word memorialize. Candler said the word didn’t appear in the rules of General Convention or the House of Deputies, so he was relying on a dictionary definition that means “to commemorate.” He added, “I trust it is a word that commemorates what the Book of Common Prayer is.”

For Such a Time As This
Safety Net Sustainability

The Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America continue our united call to Pray, Fast, and Act in support of programs that provide for necessary care for all people. Both Churches have in place such programs, but often these programs are designed to meet shortfalls in federal and state assistance.

This month we focus on safety net medical and retirement programs. The United States has a strong tradition of communities working together to care for the less fortunate. Since the time of the Revolution, Europeans such as Tocqueville noted that our ability to form associations and groups to address common problems differentiated Americans from other people. The federal government represents the largest such association formed for the improvement and betterment of our society. Towards that end, we have instituted Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security so that the poor, elderly, disabled, and people caught in economic conditions they can’t control will have a back stop for their health and wellbeing. In recent decades, as investments in programs that spur the economic potential of individuals has declined, the number of people needing these backstops has grown.

On July 21, please join the EPPN, ELCA Advocacy, and the Presiding Bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Episcopal Church as we #PrayFastAct.

PRAY  for all those who rely on our nation’s common Christian charity to receive medical care or retirement.

Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you
all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us
to forget: the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick,
and all who have none to care for them. Help us to heal those
who are broken in body or spirit, and to turn their sorrow
into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for
our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayer for the Poor and the Neglected, The Book of Common Prayer

FAST  to remember those who are unable to access these programs and the many who would be hungry and hurting if they were to lose the bit of help these programs provide.

Share on social media using #PrayFastAct. On the 21st, post a picture of a dinner place setting with the reason you are fasting this month.

ACT  by urging our elected leaders to support policy solutions that address the long-term sustainability of these programs not by blocking grant funding or manipulating eligibility, but by investing in our fellow citizens so that in the long-term, fewer people need a helping hand.
