Evensong with the Institution and Installation of the Eighth Dean of Grace Cathedral Eve of the Sunday after All Saints’ Day Saturday 6 November 2010 • 6: 30 pm


Welcome to Grace Cathedral Grace Cathedral is home to a community where the best of Episcopal tradition courageously embraces innovation and open-minded conversation, where inclusion is expected and people of all faiths are welcomed, where beliefs are put into action and where people are encouraged to seek God and progress on their own spiritual journeys. The cathedral itself, a renowned San Francisco landmark, serves as a magnet, where diverse people gather to worship, celebrate, seek solace, converse and learn. vvv Grace Cathedral is the seat of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of California, and the chief missionary church of this diocese. One hundred years ago, the ministry of the Bishop of California included the entire state. Now the diocese under our bishop’s care consists of the greater San Francisco Bay area, including Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties, and the cities of Los Altos and part of Palo Alto in Santa Clara County. It is the privilege of the cathedral to host great civic, ecumenical, and interfaith events that gather people from the city and diocese and beyond.


Welcoming our New Dean The service of the Renewal of Ministry and the Welcoming of a New Dean is celebrated in two moments of this liturgical day—the Sunday after All Saints’ Day, which honors our communion with saints past, present and to come. Saturday’s Evensong and Sunday’s Holy Eucharist each proclaim and delight in aspects of our common life of prayer and service. Our new Dean both leads and accompanies us on our common journey of transformation and service. While the office of Dean has many administrative responsibilities, we welcome the Very Rev. Dr. Jane Shaw first and foremost as priest, pastor, proclaimer and healer—tasks and charisms we all partake in as members of the Body of Christ. Special elements in the two services highlight our shared service to God, to one another and to the wider community. The Dean’s newly-commissioned cope is given to the glory of God through the generosity of Paul and Valerie Crane Dorfman. About Evensong Evensong is said or sung in cathedrals, chapels and churches around the Anglican Communion every evening throughout the year. Its roots lie in monastic worship: Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (1489–1556) created the service for the Book of Common Prayer by fusing together the monastic evening offices of Vespers and Compline. Evensong celebrates the Incarnation of Jesus, that moment when God took human form and became a part of daily, earthly life. The choir sings psalms, a part of the Jewish worship in which Jesus participated, and integral to a community looking forward to the coming of the Messiah. The choir also sings the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, songs from the New Testament which have been set to music by numerous composers. The Magnificat, the Song of Mary from the Gospel of Luke, is a prophetic hymn by Jesus’ mother, the “God-Bearer,” about the world that would emerge with the birth of her child. The Nunc Dimittis, also from Luke, is the Song of Simeon, the man who waited devoutly in the temple for the expected Messiah. There are also readings, prayers and an anthem, usually on a seasonal theme. Throughout the service, word and music join together: each enriches the other so that our senses and intellects, our hearts and minds, work together to draw us closer to God, give us a glimpse of God’s glory and learn the pattern of love at the heart of Christian discipleship.

Music at this Evening’s Service The music for this evening’s service represents traditional Anglican music as well as the local tradition of Grace Cathedral. Known to many who are familiar with Choral Evensong, the Rose Responses were originally written for the choir of Magdalen College Oxford, where Bernard Rose was director of Music from 1957– 1981. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, the standard canticles of Evensong, were set for St. Paul’s Cathedral in London by Herbert Howells, one of the most important 20th-century composers in the English church. The psalm chants are settings by John Fenstermaker, Canon Director of Music at Grace Cathedral from 1971–2000, and Benjamin Bachmann, current Canon Director of Music. The Monteverdi Beatus Vir, which was sung on our choir’s 2008 Italy tour, is a favorite of Dr. Shaw’s, and was sung at Evensong by the Choir of New College, Oxford, on her last Sunday as Dean of Divinity there.

Short Lesson

Dean

It is not ourselves that we proclaim; we proclaim Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants, for Jesus’ sake. For the same God who said, “Out of darkness let light shine,” has caused his light to shine within us, to give the light of revelation––the revelation of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Prayer for Light

2 Corinthians 4:5-6

Psalm 111

The people sit. Choir

Hallelujah! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, in the congregation. Great are the deeds of the Lord! they are studied by all who delight in them. His work is full of majesty and splendor, and his righteousness endures for ever. He makes his marvelous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. He gives food to those who fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant. He has shown his people the power of his works in giving them the lands of the nations. The works of his hands are faithfulness and justice; all his commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever, because they are done in truth and equity. He sent redemption to his people; he commanded his covenant for ever; holy and awesome is his Name.

Psalm 112

John Fenstermaker



Hallelujah! Happy are they who fear the Lord and have great delight in his commandments! Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches will be in their house, and their righteousness will last for ever. 3

Benjamin Bachmann


Light shines in the darkness for the upright; the righteous are merciful and full of compassion. It is good for them to be generous in lending and to manage their affairs with justice. For they will never be shaken; the righteous will be kept in everlasting remembrance. They will not be afraid of any evil rumors; their heart is right; they put their trust in the Lord. Their heart is established and will not shrink, until they see their desire upon their enemies. They have given freely to the poor, and their righteousness stands fast for ever; they will hold up their head with honor. The wicked will see it and be angry; they will gnash their teeth and pine away; the desires of the wicked will perish. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Genesis: 32: 24–30

Reader

The Magnificat

Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he struck him on the hip socket; and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. Then he said, “Let me go, for the day is breaking.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go, unless you bless me.” So he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” Then the man said, “You shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with humans, and have prevailed.” Then Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him. So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved.” Here ends the reading. The people stand. The Bishop censes the altar.

Luke 1:45–55

My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden. For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath magnified me, and holy is his Name. And his mercy is on them that fear him 4

Herbert Howells St. Paul’s Service


throughout all generations. He hath showed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away. He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel, as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed for ever. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. The Second Lesson

Reader

The Nunc Dimittis

After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power to our God. And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who is seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” And from the throne came a voice saying, “Praise our God, all you his servants, and all who fear him, small and great.” Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunderpeals, crying out, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready; to her it has been granted to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your comrades who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Here ends the reading. The people stand.

Luke 2:29–32

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word; For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people, To be a light to lighten the Gentiles, and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

From the Dean Dear friends, Thank you to the trustees, staff and congregation of Grace Cathedral, to our Bishop, Marc Handley Andrus, and to everyone in the Diocese of California for your heartfelt welcome — and for all you have done that we might, as a community, arrive at this day. The outpouring of love I have received from you has been extraordinary, and I am deeply grateful. It is a privilege and an honor to be called as the eighth Dean, and I pray and hope that I will serve you faithfully and well. Thank you as well to all our visitors — old friends and new, from far away and close by. It is a great pleasure to welcome you here at Grace Cathedral, and we hope you will come back often to this house of prayer for all people. Your presence is a blessing.

The Very Rev. Dr. Jane Shaw Dean

From the Dean Emeritus My dear friends, Alleluia! What a joy and privilege to welcome Dr. Jane Shaw as the eighth dean of Grace Cathedral! I am sorry I cannot be with you on this important and significant moment in the cathedral’s life. Because of understandable and inevitable schedule changes, I find I have to be out of town. I am, however, grateful for the opportunity to put in writing my enthusiasm for the appointment of and my admiration and affection for Jane. The Bishop and Search Committee worked hard and for many hours to bring a thoughtful process to fruition. It seems to me that Jane is the right person at the right time for this next stage of the cathedral’s remarkable life — a priest of probing intelligence and deep spiritual wisdom. What a wonderful new beginning! Please be assured of my love, prayers and support now, and in the months and years ahead.

Alan Jones, Dean Emeritus P. S. As you would expect from my being Dean for so many years: please give generously to the New Beginnings campaign in support of the cathedral’s mission and ministry! It touches lives in ways that cannot be numbered. 10


Support New Beginnings: The Campaign to Empower the New Dean For 100 years Grace Cathedral has been the Cathedral of the City and the broader Bay Area. In joy and sorrow, through good times and bad, we have been a place to celebrate or grieve. Through prayer, civil conversation and service, members of this cathedral have helped to enrich and transform the greater community. In her second letter to the congregation, the Very Rev. Dr. Jane Shaw wrote, “Grace has many distinctive hallmarks and strengths… a thoughtful and thinking faith; the role of Grace as a cathedral for the city and Bay Area; a commitment to social justice and outreach; and the importance of music and our liturgical traditions… I believe that together we will forge a vision for Grace Cathedral in the coming years, building on its existing strengths. I will seek to work collaboratively with you, and will always encourage you to bring your ideas, experience and energy to Grace’s worship and work.” Together we believe that Grace Cathedral can be an agent of change in the Bay Area and beyond. Our hope and our goal is that Dr. Shaw will have the greatest opportunity to begin her tenure from a position of strength. We are eager to see the impact of her leadership and want to speed and support her work as much as possible. The Board of Trustees launched a campaign to ensure adequate funding as the new Dean begins her ministry. The goal is to raise an additional $500,000 in gifts and pledges by June 30, 2011. To set the tone, every member of the Board of Trustees has committed to the campaign. Your support of Grace Cathedral’s New Beginnings campaign will be greatly appreciated. Please give as generously as you can. You will help the cathedral be a beacon of light that casts its faith and warmth onto San Francisco. Our efforts will be the tangible evidence of our dedication to the mission and ministry of Grace as well as our welcome and support for our new Dean. New Beginnings Commitment forms and envelopes can be found in the pew racks or on the tables at the back of the cathedral. You can mail your gift to: New Beginnings, Grace Cathedral, 1100 California, San Francisco, CA 94108. For further information, please contact Richard W. Felton, Interim Director of Development, (415) 749-6313 or rickf@gracecathedral.org.

The Ver y Rev. Dr. Jane Shaw Dr. Shaw joins Grace Cathedral from the University of Oxford where she was Dean of Divinity and Fellow of New College, Oxford, as well as teaching history and theology at the university for the last sixteen years. She is a priest, leader, teacher and distinguished academic and writer who brings to Grace Cathedral powerful preaching and wide expertise in liturgy, management and administration, program development, and fundraising, as well as a dedication to community building. She is a great supporter of the choral tradition and the education of choristers, and has been a trustee of Winchester College, a boys’ school in England. Dr. Shaw has already spent a substantial part of her life in the USA. She earned a Masters of Divinity from Harvard in 1988 and a Ph.D. in History from the University of California at Berkeley in 1994. In 2006, she was awarded an honorary doctorate from Episcopal Divinity School. In the 1990s, she taught at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, the Episcopal seminary in Berkeley. Dr. Shaw has been a Visiting Professor at U.C. Berkeley, Emory University, and Florida Atlantic University. She is also a Fellow of the Society of St. John the Evangelist, an Anglican monastic community in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Known internationally for her exceptional talents in communicating Christianity in the public sphere, Dr. Shaw has succeeded in bridging differences in governance and policies pertaining to inclusion, and has served as Theological Consultant to the Church of England House of Bishops. She is Canon Theologian at Salisbury Cathedral and an honorary canon of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford. This appointment comes a century after the installation of Grace Cathedral’s first dean, the Very Rev. James Wilmer Gresham, who served the cathedral for almost three decades, from 1910 to 1939. The Rt. Rev. Marc Handley Andr us Since Bishop Andrus’ election in 2006, the Diocese of California has undergone historic changes, including governance reform to achieve greater transparency and better communication between diocesan elected bodies, initiatives for outreach based on a vision of building a beloved community grounded on diversity and collaboration, action to save St. Luke’s Hospital in the Mission District of San Francisco, and prominent stands for global peace, environmental justice, immigration reform, and full inclusion of all people in ministry. In his nomination of Dr. Shaw, Bishop Andrus welcomed her many gifts of intellect and spirit, and a new partnership for compassionate service in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. The Rev. Cn. Dr. Vincent Str udwick After serving in the Royal Air Force, Vincent Strudwick trained for priesthood in an Anglican monastic congregation. Having read history and economic history for his first degree, he taught in the monastic seminary at Kelham, UK, through the 1960’s, also serving as Vice Principal. While still a monk, he also spent time as Visiting Chaplain at Dartmouth College and working in Southern Africa. For most of his ministry he has held educational posts, and for ten years was Director of Education and Training for the Diocese of Oxford, eventually returning to academia as Principal of the Oxford Ordination Course. It was here that he met Jane Shaw, already a respected academic teaching in the University, and became her mentor and friend as she prepared for ordination. He became a Fellow of Kellogg College, a graduate College of Oxford University in 1993, and was Director of Theological Studies in the University Department for Continuing Education, during which time he founded and directed the International Theology Summer Program at Oxford University. Dr. Shaw succeeded him in this role. In addition to teaching historical theology in the University, he engaged in teaching overseas, particularly with the Smithsonian, on Smithsonian cruises and in Washington DC. Since formal retirement (obligatory in the UK at an early age!) he has continued to teach and preach; he was made an Emeritus Fellow of Kellogg and College Chamberlain for 13 years, and then an Honorary Fellow. He was awarded the degree of Doctor of Divinity by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2009 for his theological teaching and writing, particularly on the English Reformation. 12
