Special This Month: Endangered Species as Stations of the Cross , page 3 A Resolution for the Rev. Dr. John Bunyan, page 4 Minns Lectures schedule, page 6

As it happens every year, Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox. For us this year it is April 4th. We could hardly wait any longer. After the lingering darkness, cold winds, and driving rains of our past winter, we in the Boston area are finally noticing signs of spring. On a walk through the Boston Garden, one cannot help but take in the beauty of the daffodils, and buds swelling on deciduous trees and shrubs. Across the street on the wide expanse of the Common, one sees strollers, bicyclists, and, it seems, many more leashed dogs. Trotting over Beacon Hill, one notices the new spring plantings in the earth and in planters, excepting one that somehow still holds artificial fall leaves and probably a story. We have nearly completed our pilgrimage through the Lenten desert—some with individual rituals of restraint or generosity, others with the Psalms classes, and still others with the Endangered Species as Stations of the Cross, which one church visitor commented was really “out there” making a bold new statement. Once again, we have entered Holy Week through the unmistakable gateway of Palm Sunday. It is time to reengage with the four Gospels as well as the rich and moving liturgies, which we have inherited from earlier generations. If Easter be anything, it is the story of how two millennia ago one man with a message made a journey to Jerusalem, was crucified and resurrected. It celebrates how he changed the world and continues to do so. We bear witness that he chose to enter the city, was swept up by political and sectarian forces, and somehow won over followers and writers, who continued to elevate him and suffer for it. Easter is about affirming together the resurrected Spirit of love and mercy, agape and justice for us and all people. This Easter and throughout the following six Sundays of the Easter season, may we live into how the ways of compassion and service can continue to change our world--our families, King’s Chapel, our work places and the larger community. May we bury the darkness of the past, and rise up in Christ’s light and glory. Easter joy,

Dianne

APRIL 2010

from THE ASSISTANT MINISTER Recently, I attended, on behalf of King’s Chapel’s ministers, a luncheon at the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee headquarters in Cambridge to hear about UUSC’s mission and programs, and to give input into how the UUSC could involve and support congregations in justice work. The mission statement of UUSC says: UUSC advances human rights and social justice around the world, partnering with those who confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to challenge oppressive policies. The service committee meets this mission by employing advocacy, education and partnerships with grassroots organizations in communities around the world in four focus areas: Economic Justice, promoting workers’ rights; Environmental Justice, most recently, advancing the human right to water; Civil Liberties; and Rights in Humanitarian Crises. Our lunch took place about a month after the Haiti earthquake, so many questions focused on UUSC’s response to such a humanitarian crisis. I was surprised, initially, to hear that the same system that privileges some and limits others during “ordinary time” similarly privileges and limits in crisis times. For example, those with the most access to resources tend to receive aid first, while the marginalized tend to receive aid last, and still others become marginalized during standard recovery efforts. UUSC’s response then is two-fold: to send immediate aid wherever it is needed and to develop a plan for on-going support in a long-term recovery effort. About one quarter of donations received for Haiti went out to meet immediate need, while about three quarters of donations were held until staff visited the country, met with partners on the ground and made plans for long term support for the most vulnerable. UUSC connects with congregations and individuals in several ways, including: the yearly Guest at Your Table program which raises awareness of all focus areas, allows everyone to donate funds, highlights the varied work of the service committee and attracts new membership; advocacy and public policy mobilizations; joint relief efforts with the UUA; and week long experiential learning/service trips. I suggested that it might be useful for UUSC to help congregations see their participation in all these areas as part of each congregation’s own overall social service and justice missions. King’s Chapel Church School, for example, chooses to focus on both local and global service. Participating in the yearly UUSC Guest at Your Table program allows families to contribute to UUSC efforts in the USA, and the wider world. UUSC programs give our congregation the opportunity to participate with other congregations and individuals in the work of advancing human rights. Most recently, we have supported that work in humanitarian crises, with our second Sunday collection in March for Haiti, in other focus areas through GAYT, and as individual and family members of UUSC. If you would like to learn more about UUSC, think with me about ways to get involved, or anything else, please let me know. In peace,

ENDANGERED SPECIES AS STATIONS OF THE CROSS

The Stations of the Cross are a series of pictures or carvings depicting the fourteen incidents in Jesus’ last journey before his Crucifixion. They are usually placed in Anglican and Roman Catholic churches for popular devotion and reflection during Lent and Holy Week. The members of the congregation proceed from one picture to the next, often led by their Priest. The stations include (1) Pilate condemning Jesus to death; (2) Christ receiving his cross; (3) Christ falling to the ground; (4) Christ meeting his mother; (5) Simon of Cyrene helping Jesus ; (6) Christ’s face being wiped by Veronika; (7) Christ falling a second time; (8) Christ telling the women of Jerusalem not to weep; (9) Christ falling a third time; (10) Christ being stripped of his garments; (11) Christ being nailed to the cross; (12) Christ dying; (13) Christ’s body being taken down from the cross; and (14) Christ’s body being placed in the tomb. In keeping with the solemnity of this spiritual practice, the members and friends of King’s Chapel, young and old, composed during Lent fourteen pictures-- thirteen of species declared “endangered” by the Endangered Species Act and a final one of a species recovered and now declared only “threatened.” We took it upon ourselves to learn more about each species and pray for them. The pictures will be hung at King’s Chapel from Palm Sunday until April 18, when they will be moved to the Parish House for a reception. We ask that you look at these pictures and remember that the species are now few in number and may someday if nothing is done - disappear from the face of our earth. These species include but are not limited to the (1) Giant Panda by Stefanie (2) Hawksbill Sea Turtle by Sylvia Soderberg; (3) Copperhead Snake by Arlo (4) Florida Manatee by Amy ; (5) Pink-headed Duck by Lilly (6) Boreal Turret Snail by Todd Lee; (7) Puritan Tiger Beetle by Elsie Hermann; (8) Red Wolf by Suzie (9) Atlantic Sturgeon by Louise Perkins; (10) Amsterdam Albatross by Julie ; (11) Rabbit Bandicott by Shannon Lee; (12) Cheetah by Joanne Giannino; (13) Northern Right Whale by Dianne Arakawa; and (14) Bald Eagle (by Elsie Hermann), which has been delisted or, dare we say, resurrected. May we here do all that we can to stop any killing or entrapment of these and other Endangered or Threatened Species, protect and not contaminate their natural habitats, prevent against climate change and ecological degradation, and allow these species and others the freedom to survive and thrive in dignity and peace. 3

ANNOUNCEMENTS, UPDATES, & EVENTS A RESOLUTION FOR THE REV. DR. JOHN BUNYAN Whereas the Reverend John Bunyan is soon to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination to the Anglican priesthood on March 8, 1960, and; Whereas, since that time he has faithfully served parishes in the diocese of Sydney, Australia, including one parish for twenty-three years, and; Whereas in his retirement he has for the last nine years spent at least a day each week travelling to St. John’s Hospital in Canberra where without stipend he has visited and still visits patients of all faiths and no faith, and; Whereas John Bunyan throughout his ministry has been a lifelong student of liturgy and theology, and has written many hymns and prayers and created books of services which preserve the dignity and authority of Anglican worship, and which not only lift up to God the heritage and culture of his native land, but also celebrate God’s embracing compassion for all peoples in all times; and Whereas, like his name sake in Bedfordshire in the seventeenth century, and like his personal exemplar, Bishop John William Colenso of South Africa in the nineteenth century, he has been a witness to free Christianity, has stood up for the rights of native peoples and has resisted all forms of reactionary religious coercion ; and Whereas, John Bunyan has been a member and good friend to King’s Chapel, preaching to us, contributing prayers to our current prayerbook and joining the Society of King’s Chapel in 1997: Therefore, we the Wardens and Vestry of King’s Chapel, meeting on March 8, 2010, in the name of the Society of King’s Chapel send to the same Reverend John Bunyan a vote of our deep gratitude for his ministry to us and others, and our prayers for God’s blessing on him and his continuing work. Voted on this eighth day of March in the year of our Lord the two thousandth and tenth, and in the lifetime of our church the three hundred and twenty-fourth. BCP @2009.CE.AU HAS ARRIVED If you would like a copy of the Rev. Dr. John Bunyan’s Broad Church Communion Prayerbook and the companion Commentary, they are available at the Parish House. Please contact Brandon Goad at 617/227-2155 ext. 314 or bgoad@kings-chapel.org to purchase your copy.

VESTRY VIEWS The Operating Budget for this current year, FY 2010 is $730,000. The draft budget for next year, FY 2011, will be slightly smaller (nobody much likes the confusing half-year FYs.) These were the major pieces of business of the March 8, 2010 meeting of the Wardens and Vestry Following our Interim Minister’s Report of her astonishing activity, we approved a motion proposed by our Minister Emeritus Carl Scovel. This was a Resolution in support of the work of our member and good friend the Reverend Dr. John Bunyan of Sydney on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his ordination. Fiscal Affairs Chair Chris Barnett and Treasurer Bill Sears then illustrated with clear tables and charts the sources of our income. The discussion of our actual income to date and projected year end, compared to budgeted and projected expenses, raised clear concern. The major issue is that our current Annual Appeal is tracking to finish as much as $60,000 below the total we had projected when we approved the budget at the last Annual Meeting. (See article elsewhere in the Newsletter.) By again deferring recommended contributions to the building maintenance funds, and by instituting some further program cuts, but also due to some unforeseen, although one-time decreases in expenses, King’s Chapel may finish the year in relative financial balance, not withstanding the shortfall. But we must not be comfortable. The Vestry recognized that neither can this strategy be followed for long, nor can our church continue to rely on the legal limit of trust fund distribution to be healthy, much less grow. Absent a current Chair of the Annual Appeal, the Junior Warden volunteered himself and Karen Dalton to lead the close out for the current 2010 year, pro tem. Vestry agreed to move its next meeting to Monday, April 5. This will allow both the proposed 2011 Budget and the Nominating Committee’s slate to be discussed and recommendations formulated for the Annual Meeting on April 25, as well as for the Hearing on April 11. Respectfully submitted,

- Todd Lee, Junior Warden

SUNDAY SERVICE GREETERS The Membership Committee began the Sunday Morning Greeters program on March 7. Two greeters are needed for each Sunday. Thus far, volunteers have stepped up so that we have two greeters for the second Sunday of each month and one greeter for the third Sunday of each month. We need a minimum of five more volunteers: two for the first Sunday of each month, two for the fourth Sunday of each month, and one for the third Sunday of each month. We are asking for two greeters for each week in hopes that we will have at least one greeter to welcome members and visitors each Sunday of the year. Please write or call: clifford_allen12@comcast.net, 978/927-1531.

FINISHING UP OUR 2010 ANNUAL APPEAL Joyfully we see that spring is returning once again. Along with the crocuses and daffodils, we trust the season also will bring us the energy and commitment to successfully complete our contributions to our 2010 Annual Appeal by the June 30 deadline. Our sense of renewed optimism and purpose for what King’s Chapel can accomplish through this spring is bolstered by the work we, as a parish, are doing with Rev. Dianne Arakawa our Interim Minister: - our healing and self-examination continues, - specific projects are being carried forward with purpose, - old and new friendships are growing, - our Morning Prayer attendance is on the rise, - the Church School and Early Service continue its offerings, - our music is wonderful and sustaining, and - our Bell and Bones program will be even more successful this season. Above all, through our many worship services, our prayer groups, and targeted study seminars, we begin to rediscover our spiritual way and love of worship together. Our 2010 Appeal target of $205,000, adopted last year at the Annual Meeting, currently has a projected shortfall of about $60,000. We’ve lost significant donors to death and relocation. The Appeal was to have been the necessary 28% that we as members and friends of King’s Chapel committed to contribute to the 2010 Operating Budget of $730,000. Absent a chair, we have been slow to start, but the first round of this year’s Appeal letters has finally gone out by USPS and email. A second letter is to follow shortly, giving each of us a statement of what we have pledged, what has been received to date, and what we gave last year. At this point, our church needs us to fulfill our pledges. Just as essential, our non-pledging year-end contributors need to continue their tradition of generous stewardship. Your Appeal is confident that we will come together to sustain this church we love and cherish. Thank you for coming forward and thank you – each of you - for your generosity.

Karen Dalton and Todd Lee Co-chairs pro tem, King’s Chapel 2010 Annual Appeal HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE Do you know how to brew coffee? If so, we need you!!

For more information or to make a commitment to the success of this activity, please contact Peter Sexton: 781/383-9028 petersexton@alum.mit.edu.

MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE SEEKS HOSTS King's Chapel has always loved parties. So, the Membership Committee is looking for a few great hosts - individuals, couples, groups of individuals - who were just waiting for us to ask them to host a King's Chapel social·for cocktails, for brunch, for dinner, for dessert·encouraging us to exercise the friendships that we've developed over the years and make some new ones. Hosts decide what they want to do, when and where they want to do it, and how many participants they are willing to invite, while those who wish to participate indicate their interest and look forward to the invitation! We'll work with both - hosts and participants - to make the match! Sign up early - for both - host and participate! The Social season is on!!

PEOPLE NEEDING PEOPLE In the love of the truth and in the spirit of Jesus Christ, we unite for the worship of God and the service of man.

from THE CHURCH SCHOOL DIRECTOR Greetings from the Church School. Below are brief updates on what each of our three classes has been working on: Kindergarten-3rd Grade: This group has been studying Super Heroes – Bible People, and the class recently read the story of and participated in art activities related to The Good Samaritan. Grades 4-5: This group has been studying Kingdom of Equals: Jesus' Radical Path to Love and Justice. The class began by studying the history of ancient Israel and then moved on to studying the Lord's Prayer and the Beatitudes. The class is now starting to learn about Jesus' Parables. Grades 6-8: This group has been studying Neighboring Faiths. As part of the curriculum, the class has visited three places of worship since the beginning of the church school year: Church on the Hill; The Boston Synagogue; and the Islamic Center of Boston. At the Islamic Center of Boston, the group observed an early afternoon prayer and met with Dr. Syed Razvi, a senior leader at the center. Dr. Razvi talked to the group about Islam’s five articles of faith, and he graciously took time to answer group members’ questions. It was a great learning opportunity for all who attended. Thank you,

Shannon Lee VISIT TO THE GREATER BOSTON FOOD BANK On Saturday, March 13, 2010, the Senior and Junior Wardens, the Assistant Minister, the Church School Director, and thirteen others from Morning Prayer and the Church School took a tour of the Greater Boston Food Bank’s (GBFB) distribution facility. Thanks to the Church School’s food drive, which began in January and lasted through the first week in March, the Church School was able to kick off the tour by donating 174 pounds of food, the equivalent of 131 meals according to GBFB’s calculations. During the tour, the group learned about the 600 member agencies who receive food donations from GBFB, the individuals and families who are served by these agencies, and information about the design of the building and how the design has resulted in an increase in the amount of food that can be sorted, stored, and distributed at the facility. You can imagine how much the three architects on our tour enjoyed this last part
