From the Clergy
By The Rev. Janey Wilson, Pastoral & College Ministry
ear Christ Church Family,
no Bishop in charge of the Diocese, the Standing Committee shall be the Ecclesiastical Authority in all cases, except as otherwise provided by Constitution, or by the Constitution and Canons of this Diocese.” [You can find the link to this document under the Resource tab on the DIOLEX web page.] The process has begun, even though the timeline cannot officially begin until September 1, 2011, when Bishop Sauls begins at the Episcopal Church Center. The timeline process suggests an average of 18 months from the previous Bishop’s departure to the new Bishop’s election. We will most likely be blessed during this time with the services of a part-time retired Bishop, and the duties and schedules pertaining to that arrangement will have to be worked out. Bishop Clay Matthews of the Office of Pastoral Development (OPD to those ‘in the know’. . .I was not!) has already met with our Standing Committee and his staff has developed a treasure trove of helpful documents to assist dioceses during this time. You should know that we have an experienced, capable and dedicated Standing Committee at the helm right now. In times of transition, rumors fly, especially in the church. As you hear things that concern you, please come and ask me. If I do not know, I will find out. As the Cathedral in this Diocese, we have a leadership role that can be best lived out by continuing to be informed, calm and steady. Diocesan events like ordinations will continue, and we will need to be ready and hospitable as we support those events. We can lead by example and provide stability in our ministry, not just to our congregation but to the Diocese and beyond. We know how to do that! The Christian Formation event this month with the Diocese of Kentucky is a wonderful example. And I am so proud, as always, to walk a part of this journey with you.
Now that our Vestry and Nominating Committees have had made such a successful call to our new Dean, The Very Rev. Carol Wade, we might feel some stability and give in to the desire to pause and smile for a moment. And we should! We have wonderful and amazing days ahead. But we also must acknowledge that we have not arrived at a destination—this is just a lovely moment in our journey together, and the surrounding environment is still filled with change. As one tshirt I recently viewed proclaimed, “when you stop changing, you are done.” Not grammar at its best, certainly, but still rather evocative! We will grow and thrive in the coming months and that will require us to flex those “changing muscles” we developed together during our interim period. We must also be aware that our Diocese will be undergoing significant change as well, and that as the Cathedral, we have a special place and responsibility in responding to that transition. Just a few days ago in the Diolex Link, we found out that our Canon to the Ordinary will also be leaving. For our community, it is important to know that Canon McDonald and his family will maintain their Georgetown home. I hope that this also means that they will also remain members of Christ Church and that we can be a supportive community to them as the family navigates this challenging transition. On July 19th, the Diocesan Clergy met with members of the Standing Committee. According to our Diocesan Constitution, the Standing Committee is a group of dedicated Lay and Ordained Episcopalians who “shall perform the duties assigned to it by the General Convention, the Diocesan Convention and by the Constitution and Canons of the General Church and of the Diocese. When a Bishop is in charge of the Diocese, the Standing Committee shall Faithfully, serve as the Bishop’s Council of advice. If there be Janey+ www.ccclex.org

God’s Pantry Food Drive Challenge By Anne Garrett
unger knows no season. Food drives are not keeping up with the demand for food assistance and we have entered the summer months which are historically low in food donations to our food pantry program. Every month it takes over 140,000 pounds of food to feed the 1,600 households in need. In June God’s Pantry received only 5,906 pounds of food. Food drive donations are down, yet the demand for assistance continues to increase.

Are we being called by God to become a partner in Haiti? By Linda Robinson
First, and most importantly, the Partnership Program is about building relationships. We do many wonderful things together in Christ’s name, but most of all we come together to grow in oneness with each other and with Christ our God. All that we do and all that we are, by God’s grace, grows out of our inspired hearts, which moves us to serve. Blessings abound for all that are involved, receivers and givers alike.” So writes Rev. Kesner Ajax, Coordinator of the Partnership Program in the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti. I became aware of this Partnership Program on my first trip to Haiti in November, 2010. I traveled to Haiti to be with the ladies of the Holy Trinity Cathedral chapter of Daughters of the King as they took their vows, had their chapter installed, and participated in the first Assembly of Daughters in Haiti (over 200 attended!). My trip was an extension of the prayer partnership our Christ Church chapter of Daughters of the King has had for three years. While in Haiti, I saw the caring relationships between the Haitian people and several of the USA team members whose home parishes have been in the Partnership Program for several years. As I learned more about the Program, I was also impressed by the way it facilitates mission and assists in the development of projects which benefit both parishes. Rev. Ajax, in consultation with Bishop Duracin, puts a USA church in contact with the priest in a Haitian church. The planning of the mission and projects takes place in conversations between members of the two partner churches so that the www.ccclex.org
needs of the Haitian community and resources of the USA parish can be identified. Rev. Ajax and his office have structures in place to assist in travel, transfers of money, plans for projects, and other concerns of the Partnership Program. Almost every Episcopal church in Haiti also supports schools, medical clinics, and other community outreach projects, so the possibilities for ministry are vast and can be tailored to fit the resources of the USA church. Our Cathedral has been involved in Haiti through several Diocesan mission trips, our Daughters of the King prayer partnership, and donations to other projects. Recently, the Cross Ministries Committee, along with the Christ Church Daughters of the King chapter and Diocesan Daughters of the King Assembly, have donated money to be used by the Holy Trinity Cathedral (Haiti) Daughters chapter to buy fabric so they can make uniforms for them to wear in their ministry. Are you – is our Cathedral – being called into partnership with a particular group of God’s people in Haiti? The beaming smiles on the faces of those who have experienced such tremendous difficulty deliver a strength and warmth to all who are blessed with their encounter. We have much to learn from these people who express the love of God in a way that is seen in few other places in the world. Those of us who have been in Haiti know this blessing first hand and are always ready to share our experiences with others. I would be happy to talk with anyone who might be interested in the Partnership Program for our Cathedral. Please pray about the possibility of service through this program and have conversations about how we might begin a new adventure of ministry with our brothers and sisters in Haiti. “God is good – all the time!”

The God moments are too numerous to mention (Virginia) but often it is the little ones that stick out the most. Early in the trip while in a service in a small church …when we were in the original church of St. Francis in Florence in the midst of approximately 70 people (the Porziuncola at Santa Maria), which was about the size of a bathroom. To think people worshiped God in such a small place. It makes our huge Cathedral seem almost a bit extravagant compared to that tiny little place. (Ashley) …in many moments. One God moment stuck out to me in particular and that was when we were climbing the Holy Stairs. This is the set of stairs that Jesus climbed up to meet Pilate, in order to climb the stairs you had to climb on your knees. While you were on the stairs every move you made was a prayer. It was one of the holiest places that I have ever been to, while climbing I could almost feel God right next to me, his presence was so strong. (Madison) …when we were on top of the castle and we could see for miles across Italy. It was cool because we could see what God made for us and how awesome it was. (Gates)
singing a hymn with a familiar tune I heard the voices of our 3 choir girls join the song. Those 3 voices allowed a somewhat harried chaperone who is somewhat of a control freak to feel comfortable enough to realize that it was time to follow instead of lead. (Robert) It is hard to pick just one moment where I saw God. But, the best was probably hearing Vespers at the Duomo in Florence.

What Is Province IV? By The Rev. Janey Wilson, Pastoral & College Ministry
will be present at General Convention of course, but not as our Bishop, so it was good to hear his thoughts now. THIS MATTERS, because in understanding our system of governance, we can understand changes that appear to happen at a remote location and sometimes surprise us with their relevance in our local congregations. We are Deputies, not delegates, so we are not expected to vote with a certain view point, but rather to learn, to listen and to move as we feel the Holy Spirit calls our hearts so to do. As a reminder, the other Clergy Deputies are The Rev. Dr. Jan Cottrell, The Rev. Bob Sessum and rom June 8-10, 2011, the Deputies to GenThe Rev. Elise Johnstone. The Lay Deputies (penderal Convention from the Episcopal Dioceses ing the promotion of Alternate Deputies of course!) of Province IV gathered together at Kanuga are Allison Asay Duvall, Ann Davis McClain, Sam Conference Center in North Carolina.

This summer, the four main issues which had presentations (and then breakout sessions,) were Congregational Evangelism, the Denominational Health Care Plan, The Anglican Covenant and Immigration. Not all of these will come up for a vote; the Denominational Health Plan was voted into place in 2009, but this was an update on the implementation. We also worshiped together, and had Diocesan Caucuses which were a chance for each Deputation to bond, share ideas, and reflect on the information we had heard. It was also good for our Bishop to spend time with us. Bishop Sauls www.ccclex.org

Taste & See That God Is Good By Karma Cassidy
e Americans have a strange relationship with food. We know we are overweight and for the most part acknowledge the health risks associated with overeating. Normal size people obsess, “If I could just lose 5-10 pounds”. We are all very certain of the aesthetic consequences of being overweight. We also may be very smart about fat grams and calories but in our hurry and anxiety we forget about the sacredness of food. It is almost as if we are afraid of food.
But we have to eat. Wendell Berry says, We cannot live harmlessly or strictly at our own expense; we depend upon other creatures and survive by their deaths. To live, we must daily break the body and shed the blood of creation. The point is, when we do this knowingly, lovingly, skillfully, reverently, it is a sacrament; when we do it ignorantly, greedily, clumsily, destructively, it is a desecration. …In such desecration, we condemn ourselves to spiritual and moral loneliness, and others to want. The theme of Vacation Bible School held on the first week of summer vacation was, Taste and See: God is Good. Through scripture and active learning the children, young people, and adult volunteers experienced the sacrament of food. We learned about the labor of bees that produce the incredible sweetness of honey and saw how Tom Steele, the beekeeper, faithfully cares for his bees by knowing their ways and respecting their habits. Then we tasted honey with bread and butter. Did you know that honey is nonperishable? Bacteria thrive on sucrose but the pH of honey is inhospitable for bacterial life. We also admired Brent Jacob’s young goats and learned how goats produce milk that is made into cheese and then we tasted the salty, creaminess of goat cheese. God

oversees the making of perfect food. The Bible is full of images and metaphors of food and all are good. We examined the goodness of God’s gift of food by dramatization of scripture, music, reflection, play, and by getting our hands dirty. On Monday, Ryan Koch, director of SeedLeaf and his staff showed us how to plant a row of seeds and turn compost in the community garden at the Old Episcopal Burying Ground. We learned that through faith we expect a tiny seed nurtured by God’s gifts of rain, sunshine and soil to produce life in great abundance (Genesis 1:11-12; Mark 4:3-9, 26-29). On Tuesday, we experienced gratitude for food by learning about the miracle of manna. In a dramatization of the Israelites’ journey through the wilderness, we were reminded about how easy it is to fall into habits of ingratitude when we disregard God’s promise that God will always provide (Exodus 16: 1-36). On Wednesday, we learned how powerful simple ingredients can be when we are faithful and hospitable. The poor woman that fed the starving profit Elijah, was reluctant until Elijah promised her that God will always supply what is needed. We tasted how these same simple ingredients of flour and oil that sustained Elijah make delicious bread even today and they will always be sufficient (1 Kings 17: 8-16). On the final day of Vacation Bible School, the children followed Christ’s example of abundance and inclusiveness. Jesus feed thousands with loaves and fish, reflected on the abundance of fruit trees, feasted with tax collectors, and the resurrected Christ revealed himself to the disciples through the simple act of eating (Luke 14: 15-24). Acting on the invitation of the celebrant, The Rev. LaRae Rutenbar, the children searched the corridors of the cathedral and invited all whom they encountered to participate in the celebration. Through generosity and faith we tasted that God is good.

The Spirituality of Sustainability By Dr. Bonnie Anderson, From the Mountain: University of the South (Spring 2011)
Have you heard that saying, “It’s all about relationship?” It is a popular saying around the Church. Usually it is said when someone is talking about a vibrant congregation, or when a particularly difficult situation has been addressed in a healthy and life-giving way. It even comes up when, for one reason or another, outcomes are less than desireable and in retrospect we see that more could have been done to develop a meaningful relationship. After all, it’s all about relationship. As we know from our own personal life, relationships are at the very core of our being. The deeper the relationship, the more it means and the more we care. This includes the thoughtful thanksgiving for the care of creation. The challenge is that we don’t easily see or understand the depth of our relationship with creation. We enjoy the beauty of a special place or any number of the beauties of nature, and we worry about the degradation of the planet when it is brought to our attention. We take steps to reconcile the earth, but for the most part, we see ourselves as the “caller of the shots” instead of the creatures of creation that we are. We often confuse dominance with stewardship.
new way. Creation refers to and describes the relationship between God and all God’s wonderful works and how all of creation is intricately connected. Environmental prophet John Muir said, “When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he’she finds it attached to the rest of the world.” In other words, everything is connected to everything else. We enjoy relationship and mysterious interdependence with all creatures. But we need to get rid of our superiority complex about the earth and start thinking of ourselves as creatures. We tend to set ourselves apart, using our ability to reason and use tools to think about and exercise stewardship as “power over” instead of understanding the relationship and interdependence among all creatures, including us, and this fragile earth.
When we are in relationship, we care. And being in relationship with each other, all of life and the whole earth is how we are meant to be. Like Buckminister Fuller’s spaceship earth, so perfectly crafted that we forget we are on it, the web of life is so intricately woven we don’t even notice our interdependence. But itsn’t it just like God to weave And though our call to Christian Steward- us together so perfectly that we have the audacship of creation is an important part of Christian ity to believe that we are the ones in control? But teaching, caring for creating until the recent past if we pay careful attention, we are smack dab in has not been primary to us. In fact, we may have the middle of the relationship with creation that we even been asleep at the switch - somewhat un- need to have in order to care for creation. derstandable when we consider our perception of Let me give you some examples of what inthe earth as what Buckminister Fuller described as “spaceship earth - so ingeniously designed that no terdependent earth cretures we really are: At this very minute, we are breathing in one has a clue that we are even on a spaceship, fly- the very same air that has been in someone else’s ing through the universe at a million miles per hour with no need for seatbelts, lots of room in coach lungs. and really good food.” Talk about being in relationship! That’s not As we know, all of that is changing and the only just relational; it is intimately relational. But obstacles we face as stewards are requiring us to that’s not even the half of it. The blood that runs rethink the very concept of stewardship and to through each of us is 60-70 percent oxygen.

Talk about being connected not only to other living creatires but also to our ancestors! Creation is vastly interconnected. All creatures including ourselves - bacteria, archaebacteria, protists, fungi, plants, and animals - are genetically related. And all living beings arebound together in countless exological communities of life.
August 2011 the creatures of the sea and lakes, combing with other water, evaporating, cleansing herself, cleansing us, reinventing herself, replenshing herself back into us and the earth and all the creatures of the earth. None of this water goes floating off into space; it all stays right her in the earth’s ecosystem, recycled over and over again. Recycled water for all time. You may have inhalded some of the same air as Solomon, Rachel Carson, and Bono, but just think, Cleopatra may have taken a bath in your ice cube.
How has God made it so creation stays interconnected? God has designed the most intricate recycling system ever. The evidence of God is so front and center you have to close your eyes, plug your ears, and hum not to get it. Consider this: If the Holy Spirit has a muse, it is water. She infused herself into our bodies and into the earth and back again, a cycle of pure precision and efficiency. In fact, just like the cells and molecules of oxygen, water flows through every creature that inhabits this island home, and it is a closed recycling system.
How about baptism? Well baptism is the Niagra Falls of the Holy Spirit. Holy Baptism, the exclamation point of water! We are infused with the Holy Spirit, the earth is infused with the Holy Spirit but our very creation, by the very gift of our birth, even before our grand entrance on sister earth, we float around comforted by the rhythm of the amniotic fluid (which is 98 percent water) and the heartbeat of our mother. But baptism is where it all comes together. That’s where relationship gets its juice - with water and the Holy Spirit. Marked as Christ’s own forever by water, the element that The Holy Spirit and her muse, float around in flows through us and flows through the earth withthe air we breathe, mist and vapor, gently misiting out which there is no life. our lungs, and when the very depth of our spirit It’s all about relationship.

Keeping marriages moving in a healthy direction By Margaret Treadwell, borrowed from EpiscopalCafe.com: Daily Episcopalian
love to do out- side of family and work; now consistently schedule these passions in. You’ll begin to see your life and your marriage - in a more positive light when you take care of yourself.
Staying in marriages over the long haul is a hot topic lately. The Washington Post recently reported on the decline of U.S. divorces and ran a story about a service at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception where an estimated 600 couples celebrated their marriages of 25-plus years. Those interviewed spoke mostly about how they met, while a few mentioned humor, teamwork, faithfulness, God and prayer.
In my work, I define a strong couple and marriage as the health of the whole family unit - parents and children - rather than solely the couple relationship. Stress in families can manifest with symptoms in one of three places - between the couple (from constant conflict to not speak- ing), in one or other of the couple (from headaches to serious illnesses), in one or more of their offspring (from rebellious acting out to anxiety and depression). No family ever scores 100 percent health - which would mean no symptoms at all. My favorite New Yorker cartoon shows one gentle- man sitting alone in the audience under a banner proclaiming “Conference For Normal Families.”
s in many movies, the classic romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally (1989) ends with a happily-ever-after wedding. The film tells the story of how two friends became lovers. Interspersed throughout are clips of long-married couples lovingly reminiscing about how they met, scored with soaring music. How these strong couples made it through the inevitable rough patches is left to our imagination.
Some of us are “born lucky” in love, but many more need a road map to develop into a strong couple. Using family systems thinking, I’ve created the following four signposts to keep marriages moving in a healthy direction: •
Grow into your fullest potential in body, mind and spirit and encourage your partner to do the same.
Remember the sparks that attracted you to each other in the first place. Keep your fun and spontaneity fresh, individually and together.
Believe in something greater than you.
If you have children, defocus them and make the top three bullets your priority.
This applies regardless of your culture, race, religion, sexual identity or socio-economic group.
I believe that we can grow to our fullest potential in marriage. It may take several “marriages within a marriage” to achieve this goal - before children, with children and after children, for starters. One young husband brought the family calendar to a counseling session and asked his wife to schedule him in. She replied, “I’ll be happy to, but I have to schedule myself in first, and then I can have more fun with you.” Far from being selfish, she was taking a clear stand for her self-preservation. How can we love someone else when we won’t love ourselves first? List three things you
It is remarkable how many parents send their children off to a therapist for a symptom fix rather than taking a thoughtful look at their own relationship. These family leaders - the only ones capable of making a lasting family change - often carry levels of stress that are too big to contain between the two of them. This stress trickles down like an anxiety flu to the most vulnerable child. When people tell me about rough spots in their marriages, they usually are describing some variation of this pattern. Bottom line: If the couple is OK, over time their children will be OK, too. When they “get” the importance of becoming a strong couple for their kids (even if they aren’t particularly interested at the moment in working on it for themselves), the symptom relief for children is swift. But here’s the paradox: techniques for strengthening a marriage are successful only to the extent that the individuals in the marriage are willing to strengthen themselves, rather than place absurdly high expectations on a spouse or partner to create their happiness. In his homily at the April 29 Royal Wedding, the Bishop of London held up faithful and committed relationships as a door into the spiritual life: “Marriage should transform, as husband and wife make one another their work of art. It is possible to transform as long as we do not harbor ambitions to reform our partner. There must be no coercion if the Spirit is to flow; each must give the other space and freedom.”
