    “What’s In Your Backpack?” By the Venerable Carl Walter Wright

    With apologies to the world famous credit card company that asks, “what’s in your wallet?” I ask, “what’s in your backpack?” Are you traveling lightly or heavily? Are you bearing too much to be an effective witness for Christ? The long hot summer in the long green season isn’t over yet. It appears that we’re in for another good month (September) of uncharacteristically tropical temperatures. But following the agricultural and academic years, we will start making changes the first Sunday in September. At this writing – the third week in August – I see children starting back to school, promenading around in their colorful backpacks. Also, I’ve noticed it’s become popular for Episcopal parishes in our diocese to sponsor backpack ministries, handing-out well-stocked backpacks to deserving students. Backpacks are “in” nowadays. The backpack has become an indispensable item in our American culture. But it was not ever thus. Not so long ago it was postmen and working folks who bore their loads on their backs, while the professional folks were known by their leather brief cases. As a military man (and a First Class Boy Scout before that) I have carried backpacks – or, rucksacks – on my back most of my life; and I have the back and shoulder pains to prove it! What’s in those backpacks? Lunch? Books? Writing utensils? Extra clothes? Shaving kits and shower gels? If today’s kids are anything like I was – they’re carrying too much! Because the pack is spacious and flexible we’re tempted to put too much in them; and half of that stuff

    we don’t even use; just like some ladies with their handbags… There’s a lesson in this. When commissioning his earliest followers to spread the Good News in His Name, Jesus said, in Mark 6 and 8, “Take nothing for your journey except a staff – no bread, no money in your belts.” Similarly, Luke 10 and 4 has Him saying to them, “Take no purse [backpack], nor bag, nor sandals, and salute no one on the way…” Now, some followers have taken this advice as if it were a commandment. These followers are monks, religious, hermits, nuns – Christians who radically follow Christ and pray daily for us. But the rest of us must find our way down the road trying at the same time to be obedient to the Lord’s wishes and surviving in the world. While we may not be able to literally empty-out our backpacks, or go bare-footed, or ignore what’s happening in the world; we certainly can live modestly, pray daily, exercise regularly, give generously, and love lavishly. In so doing, we will fulfill the Lord’s intent. In so doing we will be true witnesses of the Way to the world. As we start this Program Year, in the Name of Jesus, I recommend we check to see what’s in our backpacks and strive each day to lighten our loads so that others “by observing our good woks may glorify our Father in Heaven (Matthew 5:6).”

    Musical Notes

    Choir

    “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord! That is what our choir does at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday morning when we are back in the two-Service groove. Have you noticed when we sing there are some empty seats in the choir loft? If you can carry a tune and count to four, you can fill one of those seats. Thursday evening choir practice will begin on September 1st at 7:00 p.m. Come sing with us as we feel the Spirit move within our hearts!

    Handbells

    Have you ever thought of joining a heavy metal group? Now is your chance! If you know your left hand from your right hand, and can count and recognize the colors blue and red, there is a place for you among our handbell ringers! Please see our “ring leader” Joan Wibbe. Practice begins on Wednesday evening, September 7th at 7:00 p.m.

    Bearing Fruit In Old Age

    One of the greatest leaders in history didn't begin his public ministry until he was eighty years old. Moses, it appears, would have been quite content to live out his life in the quiet recesses of Midian, but God had other plans. At the burning bush, God told Moses to do now, in the strength of the Lord, what he had attempted forty years earlier in his own strength---deliver Israel from Egyptian oppression. Perhaps even more impressive, is that after two years of service, he consented to thirty eight more. Too many Christians work hard in the kingdom of the Lord until they reach retirement years when they not only retire from their calling in the world, but also from their work in the church. The example of Moses shows us that for some the most fruitful years in the service of the Lord begin after retirement. Every stage of life has its own temptations and in every stage of life, we must war against the flesh. For the aging, the temptation is often to quit the race and stand on the sidelines. The exhortation is to resist this temptation. Find a way to bear fruit in the kingdom. Use your golden years to strengthen your relationship to Christ through the disciplines of prayer, meditation, and study. Use your time to serve others who need your help, whether they are the sick, the young mothers, the spiritually weak, or those more advanced in years than yourself. There is always work to do and in the body of Christ there are no unnecessary members.

    I HAD A "DRUG" PROBLEM WHEN I WAS A CHILD

    * I was "drug" to church on Sunday morning. * I was "drug" to church on Sunday night. * I was "drug" to church on Wednesday night. * I was "drug" to Sunday School every week. * I was "drug" to gospel meetings several times a year. * I was "drug" to the family room to read the Bible after supper. * I was also "drug" to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents. Those "drugs" are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in everything I think, say, and do. They are stronger than cocaine, crack or heroin. And, if all children had this kind of "drug" problem, America would certainly be a better place. I'm glad my parents gave me this "drug."(Author Unknown)

    CHINABERRY LUNCHES

    Bent over, with the shape of overgrown bushes, chinaberry trees are not real trees and are nearly good-for-nothing. The limbs are thin, the leaves are tiny, and the shade they offer is mottled and scarce. Their bitter berries are eaten in mid-Summer when they’ve fallen to the ground, soured and fermented, by Blue Jays who stagger and fall over drunk for the amusement of small children and, seemingly, themselves.

    Growing wild and never cultivated, chinaberry trees are nearly good-for-nothing. Yet, because the grammar school playground otherwise had no shade, the chinaberry tree, clinging for life to a red clay bank at the edge of the playground, was allowed to grow to give its meager protection from the noonday sun to Mary Jane Stains and me. We ate lunch there.

    Mary Jane was the tallest girl in the second grade. I was the tallest boy. She was the thinnest girl and I was not the thinnest boy. I liked her because she was tall and thin and shy, but no one else seemed to like her; and I didn’t know, or care, why. Although the government-sponsored school lunchroom had opened with much hoopla at the beginning of the year, neither Mary Jane nor I ate lunch there. My parents thought the $1.25 a week was outrageous and frankly they didn’t trust the hired cooks or the cleanliness of the kitchen; and as I later learned, Mary Jane’s parents were just too poor to pay.

    Did I say, “Will you share my lunch with me?” Did I say, “Let’s lunch?” Or did I say, “Want some fried chicken?” I don’t remember. I don’t remember how I asked her or when she said yes, but I know that we sat in the shade of the chinaberry tree at lunchtime, day after day, and ate and drank and talked. It was then that I noticed her clothes were not as nice as the other girls and that sometimes her skirt didn’t seem to fit, as if it had belonged to someone else, and often her blouse was not clean – but it made no difference to me. We ate the chicken my mother cooked, sometimes biscuit sandwiches with butter and ham, and we drank iced tea from the blue plastic top of the same thermos.

    One day, just before the bell rang at the end of lunch, Mary Jane said, “My mother says that I can go home with you on Friday. We can play all afternoon.” I said, “Ok. I’ll ask my mother.” At the end of the school day, I was not quite in the car when I screamed, “Mother, Mary Jane Stains’ mother says she can come home with me. Is that ok with you?” My mother’s head snapped around, her hands left the wheel of the car before she had time to crank it; and in a strained, tight voice, that I don’t think I had heard before, she said, “Absolutely not. Mary Jane Stains and her family are not our kind of people. She will not come to our house and she will not play with you. They are just not our kind of people “

    I don’t remember what I told Mary Jane. I don’t remember if we ate together again. I don’t think so. But I do know that in an instant, I changed; my mother changed; the world changed. I entered for the first time, with my mother’s introductory prohibition, a world she had long accepted, the harsh world of discrimination and disappointment.

    Sunday School-Lympics

    By Joan Teakle

    Sunday School has been having a blast – literally, a blast!! As we continue to take a closer look at God’s creation, we saw what happens to gas when it’s under pressure. Fortunately we didn’t take too close a look because the outcome was startling to say the least! God’s creation is awesome and fun!! The Sunday School Kids had a Play Date on Sunday, Aug 28. All the kids (small and tall) enjoyed a slip-n-slide, shaving cream beards, shaving cream hats, water balloon games and more! We looked at God’s creation, noticing what happens to the molecules in Ivory soap when the bar is microwaved. (Don’t try this without directions!) After the soap cooled, we crumbled it into a bin, added water and TP (yes, TP) and made a rich ‘mud’. It was quickly pointed out what great ‘snowballs’ one could make from the ‘mud’. So, yes, we had a snowball fight too! The kids made their own pizza and homemade butter too! They had a Picture Scavenger Hunt of items on our campus. We’ll be putting the pictures in the narthex if you’d like to try your hand. God’s creation is awesome. God’s creation is fun!

    This is what happens when you Microwave an Ivory Soap Bar

    What’s it like to serve on our Lord’s altar?

    What’s it like to serve on our Lord’s altar? There is a calming and rewarding experience

    knowing you are participating in serving our Lord’s body and blood to your church family. We

    have everything you need to wear in our wardrobe closet and plenty of guidance from other altar

    servers. Also, Father Carl is very kind and clear in his directions during each task of the mass

    service. Every Sunday service is a celebration of Jesus’ love and sacrifice for us, who wouldn’t

    want to be actively involved in this celebration? I experienced many of our young church

    members serving on our altar one Sunday and they were mesmerized during our celebration. If I

    have piqued your interest, come talk with me and we can arrange an opportunity for you to serve

    on our Lord’s altar.

    A Mosaic

    As I read the cover explanation of the current Forward Day by Day, a mosaic of St. Paul, I

    discovered a connection with my church family. Part of the explanation said, “As with a mosaic,

    each of us is a vital, vibrant individual telling the story of God through our lives and witness, and

    collectively we come together as part of a magnificent creation, the whole Body of Christ.” A

    great description of St. Andrew’s church. All of us bring our gifts of time, talent and treasure in

    unique loving ways. Another article in this same current issue mentions a book titled, One

    Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp. In this book [available at our public libraries] a woman

    experiencing life’s struggles and tragedies is challenged to come up with a thousand blessings /

    graces she could be grateful for in her life. I know we at St. Andrew’s can easily find a thousand

    gifts we collectively offer in service to our Lord. Just look around and reflect on all the

    ministries, witnessing and holy exultations we are blessed with and share in our little brick

    church in Pasadena.

    Thinking of our church as a mosaic, every individual’s offering is indeed vital. Seek and listen.

    Where is God calling you to serve? Maybe you feel called to help in one of our current

    ministries: serving on our Lord’s altar, supporting Winter Relief, singing in our choir, bringing

    food to coffee hour, working with our enthusiastic youth, serving on our vestry, taking photos,

    writing an article or poem for our newsletter. Maybe you have a new idea for a ministry. Tell it

    to any vestry member or Father Carl. Bless us with your gifts of time, talent and treasure. Our

    mosaic needs YOU!

    A Note from our

    New Deacon in Training Good morning! I am Corby Zeren

    and I am your deacon intern. It will be my pleasure to worship and minister with you for the next nine months. And it is my honor to learn from the Venerable Father Carl Wright, archdeacon of the Diocese of Maryland.

    I was born in the Brooklyn Navy Yard Hospital on October 29, 1943. WWII was on and my father was the radio/radar officer on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific. I was “christened” in the Episcopal Cathedral in Garden City, NY, on Easter Even, 1944.

    The first “home” I remember was in Rockville Centre, Long Island. While we lived there, my brother was born, in April 1946, and I walked to Sunday school at the nearby Congregational Church and the local elementary school, with neighborhood children.

    In 1950, my parents realized that Long Island was being overdeveloped. We moved to a rural farming community in New Jersey, Livingston. I rode school buses from 2nd grade through high school.

    I graduated from Livingston High School in June, 1961, bound for Duke University, Durham, N.C. There I majored in English, and discovered boys and the Episcopal Church. I served as the altar guild at the Episcopal Student Center, was mentored and prepared for confirmation by the Episcopal chaplain. I was confirmed by the Bishop of Newark in my senior year of college.

    I had met my incipient husband, a mechanical engineering student, at Duke. We were married in St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Roseland, N.J., after my graduation in 1965. We returned to Durham for his senior year. When he had graduated in 1966, we moved to LaCrosse, WI, for six months’ training at the Trane Company. We were assigned by Trane to the Baltimore area. Our first house was in Timonium, MD; then a townhouse in

    Towson. We attended Trinity Church, Towson.

    We found a charismatic priest at Nativity, Cedarcroft. When our priest-friend was called as vicar of Christ’s Church, Baltimore, we went with him.

    Meanwhile, my husband and I had become neophyte sailors. I had also found a new profession – nursing. After seven years as a surgical nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Towson, my husband and I found a wonderful house in Annapolis, MD. We moved to Annapolis in December, 1979. I went to work at Anne Arundel General Hospital in February, 1980. We continued to “commute” to Christ’s Church until 1985, when the diminishing congregation could no longer afford to keep the church open. Christ’s Church was closed and we found ourselves accepted at St. Anne’s Parish, Annapolis.

    We participated in Education for Ministry at St. Anne’s. I became aware of a call that I could only identify as ordained ministry. I undertook a combined exploration of education at St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute and the diocese’s “exploring our ministry.” I completed my masters in theology degree, but was denied acceptance into the postulancy program. I continued to serve at St. Anne’s in all manner of ministries. My husband and I attended and participated in Cursillo.

    Life went on. In 2000, I left my employment at Anne Arundel hospital. After the 09/11 experience in 2001, we went to explore our post-career life, sailing. I came to know that this way of life was not for me. We came home and I went back to work. In due time, my husband (of 42 years) went away, to pursue his destiny.

    Meanwhile, I was invited by my rector, Amy Richter, to explore my potential for ordained ministry. And so, “here I am, Lord,” answering the call of so many years ago; delighted to be here with you.

    FEAST OF THE HOLY CROSS

    During the reign of Constantine, first Roman

    Emperor to profess the Christian faith, his

    mother Helena went to Israel and there

    undertook to find the places especially

    significant to Christians. (She was helped in this

    by the fact that in their destructions around 135,

    the Romans had built pagan shrines over many

    of these sites.) Having located, close together,

    what she believed to be the sites of the

    Crucifixion and of the Burial (at locations that

    modern archaeologists think may be correct),

    she then had built over them the Church of the

    Holy Sepulchre, which was dedicated on 14

    September 335. It has become a day for

    recognizing the Cross (in a festal atmosphere

    that would be inappropriate on Good Friday) as

    a symbol of triumph, as a sign of Christ's

    victory over death, and a reminder of His

    promise, "And when I am lifted up, I will draw

    all men unto me." (John 12:32)

    PRAYERS - Almighty God, whose Son our

    Savior Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the

    cross that he might draw the whole world unto

    himself: Mercifully grant that we, who glory in

    the mystery of our redemption, may have grace

    to take up our cross and follow him; who liveth

    and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one

    God, in glory everlasting.

    September 29

    MICHAEL AND ALL ANGELS

    On the Feast of Michael and all Angels,

    popularly called Michaelmas, we give thanks

    for the many ways in which God's loving care

    watches over us, both directly and indirectly,

    and we are reminded that the richness and

    variety of God's creation far exceeds our

    knowledge of it.

    The Holy Scriptures often speak of created

    intelligences other than humans who worship

    God in heaven and act as His messengers and

    agents on earth. We are not told much about

    them, and it is not clear how much of what we

    are told is figurative. Jesus speaks of them as

    rejoicing over penitent sinners (Lk 15:10).

    Elsewhere, in a statement that has been

    variously understood (Mt 18:10), He warns

    against misleading a child, because their angels

    behold the face of God. (

    PRAYER - O everlasting God, who hast

    ordained and constituted the ministries of

    angels and men in a wonderful order:

    Mercifully grant that, as thy holy angels always

    serve and worship thee in heaven, so by thy

    appointment they may help and defend us on

    earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who

    liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy

    Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
