The Future Forecast ...

T

he weather in August is usually hot in Knoxville. The summer of 1988 was the hottest in more than a century. How hot? Well, there was scorching heat throughout the country and deaths by the hundreds. The weather included catastrophic droughts and raging forest fires. Livestock were dying in the fields and shallow rivers produced dead fish. The scene may sound like a future globalapocalypse, but it actually happened 30 years ago in 1988! That was the year I began my ministry at Saint John’s on Monday, August 15, 1988. It sure was hot in Knoxville! Was this really where God wanted me to be for the next three to five years? I remember being asked to offer prayers for rain and cooler weather. I was also called on and expected to pray for and cheer to victory the Tennessee Vols football team. In 1988 the Vols began their season by losing the first five games. With a record of 0-5, people at Saint John’s were beginning to question the prayer life of their newly called pastor. I was on the “hot seat” along with Coach Johnny Majors. Fortunately, the football team concluded the season with a 6-5 record and the year 1988 concluded with Saint John’s celebrating our 100th Anniversary on Sunday, December 18th. Pastor Lem Sparks, anniversary preacher and former Senior Pastor of Saint John’s from 1954-1966, announced from the pulpit he and his wife, Betty, were returning to Knoxville. Pastor Sparks would be serving Saint John’s once again in a part-time staff position working

2

with us and our Senior Adult Ministry. So delighted with the return of “Sparky” and Betty, the congregation never seriously questioned my prayer life “connections” and pastoral leadership again. The weather was changing and so was our ministry! The New Year of 1989 produced a new parish staff and a new vision for mission and ministry we called “A Second Century of Service”, which was the first of our six capital campaigns over the next thirty years. The long hot summer of 1988 has become a distant memory now as we celebrate Saint John’s 130th Anniversary this year and conclude our “Raising the Roof!” capital campaign. However, in the midst of all of our life transitions, we continue to trust and believe in a generous God of grace who walks with us through the challenging “weather” of summer, fall, winter and spring, promising to make all things new. As I celebrate my 30th anniversary of ministry at Saint John’s, I know my prayers don’t control the weather or the final score of a football game. I do believe, however, our journey and our prayers together are significant and will make a difference as we approach a seasonal ministry transition for the Saint John’s congregation and staff in December. Season after season, year after year, God continues to be faithful in all kinds of weather! God’s forecast for the future is always faithful! In Christ,

LUTHERAN LIFE

H

ow is it only at this monastery, in this refectory, looking out at this garden, that I notice how good toast and butter are?

Hardly a work of art, just a snippet of poem I wrote on retreat at Gethsemani Abbey in Kentucky, but it captures something I’ve come to believe is true. Gratitude requires pause. Sure, we can enjoy work and play while working and playing, but to give joy its place, to take it in, requires a moment’s rest, to notice and appreciate. I think of a pianist, seated at the piano, ready to play. Before even putting her hands on the keys, there’s a moment’s pause. Then fingers touch ivory and she plays. The pause gives the piece fullness, before it begins. I think even more of God, after creating the heavens and the earth, resting on the seventh day. As my friend Kyle Matthews once said, “Why? Because creation wasn’t complete until it was appreciated!” What would it be like, to pause regularly throughout the day, to give thanks? How much more fullness might there be? It’s a strange gift, gratitude. Everything it touches turns to blessing. The circumstances of our lives don’t have to change for this to happen. All that changes is we become grateful. I’ve been approaching this lately through appreciation poems, not aiming for greatness, just using words to capture moments when I feel grateful. Matter of fact, here’s another, from a recent trip to Mt. Mitchell. The canvas flap of the camp pavilion snorts like a lip-flapping horse, each time the wind hits it right. The fire whirs, cracks, and sizzles, sending smoke down the mountain. Coffee, sweet like I never make it at home, pressed by my tongue, warms throat, then chest within. Teeth fuzzy from no brushing, a smile lifts the lower corners of my mouth, eyes smile too. My boy, nearly a man, sleeps in the tent. Scrub trees dance around us, here on this peak. Clouds hurry by the neighboring slope like concert-goers, eager to see the show in the next valley. I could write more, but I’d rather invite you and me both, as we put this column down, to give ourselves a moment to be grateful – for family, for health, for air-conditioning – whatever’s meaningful to you. I’ll start. I’m grateful for the time you’ve given to read this. I hope it blesses you, as it has me. P. S. I highly recommend Gethsemani Abbey (www.monks.org). The brothers know something about rest and gratitude, their hospitality is supreme, and their toast really is outstanding. I also recommend Mt. Mitchell (https://www.ncparks.gov/mount-mitchell-state-park). It’s a great place to hit your reset button, with a lookout tower and a snack stand at the top, and it’s a beautiful drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway.

ello St. John's Family,

As you know, my time as the Youth Ministry Associate Minister at St. John's is coming to a close. I will be heading out to do my Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) work in Australia on August 14th. I will be working with aboriginal middle school and high school age kids at a boarding school called Yirara College in Alice Springs, Australia, which is in the middle of the Outback . It has been an honor and a pleasure for me to serve the St. John's family and community for the last 3 years, and I want to thank you all for allowing me to do so faithfully. I have learned many lessons and grown quite a bit as a person over my time at St. John's, and I have the love and support of this community to thank for that. I will miss you all very much as I take the next step on the path of ministry that God has placed before my feet. As part of my time in Australia, I will be posting as much as I can on my Facebook and Instagram. So if you want to see me having a barbecue for Christmas, fighting a kangaroo, and spending many faithful hours with God's people find me on those social media sites. Peace & Love,

Join us Sunday, August 5th for First Sunday Brunch and a SEND-OFF CELEBRATION for Isaac Taylor. 10am in Sparks Fellowship Hall

adia Bolz-Weber writes: “Baptism feels like the kind of love that heaven can’t contain. A love that is yours quite apart from what you do or don’t do. The kind of love that breaks your heart and then makes it bigger, a love that creates belovedness in the one it rests upon.” St. John’s celebrates baptism day in, day out because it focuses on the loving relationship God initiates with each of us, a relationship that that defines and shapes and beckons. One expression of this focus is Stepping Stones of Faith, a faith formation opportunity through which

families are invited to consider the baptismal promises at pivotal developmental milestones. In worship, the families are recognized, the child is gifted, and the congregation is called to invest again in the shared role of nurturing all of God’s children. Check out these upcoming events which will take place at both services: Sunday, July 29 … Send Off for Our College Freshmen Sunday, August 5 … Celebration of Kindergarten Parents, Pastor Amy will send out e-mails with all of the details and an invitation to RSVP.

ith Isaac’s departure to Australia and lots of transition with Pastor Steve’s retirement, Pastor Amy decided to approach youth ministry a bit differently for the 2018-2019 academic year. No doubt, it will be an exciting time to evaluate our youth ministry opportunities, develop our student leaders, and learn a lot from our adult volunteers. Check out these students who have stepped up to serve on the newly formed Youth Council: Chloe Gibson, rising senior at L&N Stem Academy Anna Beth Lee, rising sophomore at Webb School Sarah Morgan, rising junior at Bearden High Fred Perkinson, rising senior at Webb School Katherine Perkinson, rising freshman at Webb School Kylie Shattuck, rising senior at West High Trevor Tirro, rising junior at West High Maddie Trout, rising sophomore at L&N Stem Academy Ethan Zinser, rising junior at L&N Stem Academy Additionally, we are seeking some faithful adults who are interested in leading from behind, as well as provide an adult presence and support the ministry plans the folks above make. If you are interested, please contact Pastor Amy at amy@sjlcknox.org or 865.805.9805. We will use the month of August to transition back to school and establish plans through May 2019. Our inaugural event will be held on Sunday, September 9; please circle that date in red on your family calendars!

OW 2018 is a wrap and our hearts will never be the same. We served beside one another, laughed, loved and learned that there is ALWAYS enough with God. We continue to celebrate the gifts of youth leadership and our mission partners on the WOW journey. Many joined together to bring Draw the Circle Wide to life: 6 paid staff members, 7 adults leaders , 23 Peer Leaders, 8 Team Members and many faithful, adult volunteers from SJLC. We were blessed to host 119 guests from Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee from the following congregations including Trinity Lutheran (Tullahoma, TN), Peace Lutheran (Knoxville, TN), Gloria Dei (Crestwood Hills, KY), Westminster Presbyterian (Knoxville, TN), St. Andrews Lutheran Church (Columbia, South Carolina), Lutheran Church of the Resurrection (Marietta, Georgia), St. John’s Lutheran Church (Salisbury, NC), First Presbyterian Church (Knoxville, Tennessee), Lutheran Church (Gastonia, North Carolina), First Lutheran Church (DeKalb, Illinois) and Wittenberg Lutheran Church (Granite Falls, NC) During WOW 2018 summer camp, a total of 4,085 volunteer hours were served at the following community locations: Christenberry, Beardsley Farm, ETTAC, Family Justice Center, Guy B. Love, KARM, KARM Thrift, Ladies of Charity, Minvilla, Mobile Meals, Park Place, Random Acts of Flowers, Salvation Army, Serene Manor, St. John’s Lutheran, VMC, Wesley House and Serene Manor. Enjoy these highlights shared by our guests: KARM concessions were such a meaningful experience! The group this week drew the circle wide as we had long conversations and met so many of our neighbors. The circle was widened as we went out into the community, spent time and formed meaningful connections with our neighbors and those all around us. The circle widened through an expanding group of friends that came together to serve and worship. I grew as I reached out of my comfort zone by talking to homeless people. During Water Wagon we got to experience what it was really like to, physically help someone by handing them a cup of water. I loved doing Mobile Meals because I loved the smiles from the people as we would deliver their meals. My favorite memory was hanging out at ETTAC with all my friends and sharing the love of God. Serene Manor and Wesley House were really eye opening and touched my heart. I was so inspired by so many amazing, youth leaders in WOW and how GOD is working through them.

ith four months remaining in our three year capital campaign, we have raised the roof with gifts and offerings of $580,931. Our campaign priorities have included capital improvements, endowment, debt reduction and benevolence. We are thankful to report the first priority of Sanctuary roof replacement and waterproofing the exterior stone of our sanctuary was completed under budget. The actual expense of $190,205 was $16,795 under the original estimate of $207,000. With stone work and waterproofing completed, and a new clay tile roof installed, our sanctuary interior was addressed as the second campaign priority. Plaster repair and painting the sanctuary and the Fireside Room was a beautiful and much needed restoration. New carpet, pew cushions and kneelers, technology upgrades with new lighting and audio visual equipment have all greatly enhanced our worship space experience. Also, protective window-well grates were installed around the exterior of our sanctuary to protect the foundation from water damage, to eliminate window-well trash and improve our property security. Painting and plaster work with both the courtyard wall and our educational building have given Saint John’s a new look on the Broadway side of our facility. We also invested in classroom renovations for our educational building and a new pastoral staff office. And then there is the NEW KITCHEN! This long anticipated improvement became a reality last fall as we witnessed the expansion and complete remodel of our fifty year old kitchen. The kitchen size was doubled; new equipment purchased and installed new cabinets and countertops, new floor and ceiling, new lighting and new HVAC. With twice the space and new commercial equipment, we continue to celebrate this amazing kitchen transformation. The total cost of $94,520 was under our original estimate of $100,000 and we have a brand new kitchen! Preparing three meals a day this summer for the WOW ministry was a brand new experience and the larger TLC teams for food preparation and clean-up gives us so many more opportunities for growing relationships!

FAITH FORMATION Currently, Our Saint John’s Mission Outreach Endowment balance is $53,274. However, the Church Council recently appropriated funds from “Raising the Roof” in the amounts of: $20,000 to the Endowment Fund, $50,000 to debt reduction, and an additional $10,000 to the ELCA Southeastern Synod for benevolence. We have made previous contributions of $22,500 to local and synodical benevolence through the campaign. Our endowment, debt reduction and benevolence are the remaining “Raising the Roof!” priorities now that our major capital improvements have been completed.

Thanks for your generous gifts and continuing contributions to “Raising the Roof!” We anticipate a strong and faithful conclusion between now and November to this successful campaign! To God be the glory! With gratitude,

PS: Also noteworthy regarding stewardship and giving opportunities is our Saint John’s Fund for Leaders in Mission which has provided financial scholarship support for our Saint John’s seminarians over the past ten years. Established in 2008, this seminarian endowment fund now has a balance of $186,786. Thanks for including Saint John’s in your future planned giving.
