PENTECOST I


LUTHERAN LIFE

D

ear Friends,

As I look back over the last 15 months, I can’t help but think of all the ways that we have been church. We are church when we are swept up by the spirit of God. We are church when we welcome everyone, especially with their different values and beliefs. We are the church when we embrace each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. And we are blessed because we are church together. This past Sunday, Christians throughout the world will celebrated the Feast of Pentecost, one of our greatest Christian feasts.

The day of Pentecost marked a turning point in the early church. It was originally a Jewish feast that was celebrated 50 days after Passover. The feast included a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. And this Pentecost, we began yet another pilgrimage. Our journey includes discernment and prayer and welcoming a new senior pastor. And we are sent out, sent to have compassion and understanding, sent to offer peace and shalom, sent to share the good news to all people even those who don’t believe the same. This Pentecost, Jesus promises us the gift of the Holy Spirit. The church is the church! That is what we are sent to be. The apostles became the church, everything they did spoke of the Gospel. Everything they did lifted up the spirit of God. The spirit gives the church life. This Pentecost begs the question, “How will we Be The Church together?” Some of us will go our separate ways. I will leave for another assignment, some will leave for school, or jobs, or retirement. We are sent to be the church, And together we are church. These last 15 months, we have accomplished so much: we have become a lay lead church with remarkably gifted leaders, we have put in place financial guidelines and practices, we have finely tuned the personnel side of the church; we established a savings account; we are building a budget that allows us to do ministry and live within our means; our church facilities have being improved (roof, tuck pointing, landscape, etc); we are looking at how to better manage risks, we developed zip code groups and have given the people a voice. From zip code groups came a position for a Christian education director; and we’ve read “Rediscover Jesus” and looked into the radical love that Jesus lived. All of the transition process has been remarkable, yes their has been anxiety, their have been feelings of uncertainty and wandering, there has been agreements and disagreements, but in the end we have been church, we have been faithful to the good news and to St John’s. Together we have accomplished so much in such a short time and for that thank you to you the people of this faith community. I thank you for your unending commitment to the transition process. I honestly believe that St John’s is better prepared to welcome their new senior pastor. As Jesus says: Love is the solution Blessings to you,

LUTHERAN LIFE

P

entecost celebrates the birth of the Church, the giving by God of the Spirit, that we might rise as the body of Christ, loving, forgiving, and serving in his name. This is represented by symbols of air (“a sound like the rush of a violent wind”), flame (“divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them”), words (“speaking in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability”), and understanding (“the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each, ” Acts 2:1-6). These are life-giving symbols, then and especially now, as the Word goes out through air (WiFi and other broadcast) and flame (electricity of phone lines and cable), and we learn new ways to speak God’s promises (Zoom, YouTube, Facebook Live) and remember old ways (hand-written notes and phone calls). Somehow, in the midst of that, God meets us, where we are, giving us strength, connecting us, caring for us, being the One in whom we “live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28). We’re learning a lot, even as we eagerly await the day when we can be with one another, physically, once again. This past Pentecost Sunday (May 31), we invited our children to make kites and windsocks and to wave them in the wind, along with pinwheels and whatever else you might have on hand that represents wind, and we asked you to use your phones or cameras, as you were able, to make videos and send them to St. John’s, to be part of our worship celebration. We invited everyone to wear red, as a symbol both of flame and of the blood of the martyrs, those who gave their lives that the Word of God’s love might come down through the generations to us. They are truly an inspiration (“in” + “Spirit” = “inspiration"), a giving of God’s breath, God’s life, making it possible for us to live in Jesus’s name and to pass his Word and Breath of life to others, through songs and sermons, scripture and prayer, trusting God to work the miracle of understanding that meets us where we are and makes us one body in Christ. We may not be able to sing together — or we may, with masks, or outdoors, at a distance, or some combination (we’re still figuring this out) — but we can still share music, words, and faith onscreen, on page, through the phone, in memory and imagination, with every means God gives. And that is all we are ever asked to do, to love and serve in Jesus’s name, with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, in the bodies and abilities we have at this time. God takes our time, talent, and treasure — as they are — and uses them to help and heal God’s world. We offer what we have, and God makes all the difference. So this Pentecost season, continue to wear red, continue to send your videos, and let’s join in a beautiful celebration of life together in Christ! In Christ, with you,

S

t Johns has completed a lot of the transition work for the arrival of a new senior pastor. The only thing left is prayer, prayer and more prayer as the call committee settles in for interviews and then get yourselves ready to welcome your new senior pastor.

It is a journey, a partnership, where you all will engage in ministry together. During the transition we have introduced major cultural shifts that include teams and council liaisons, pastoral and staff support. St John’s is financially managing risks and finances differently. The Personnel team worked hours and hours to get our files and procedures up to date. Staff have completed background checks and volunteers will be able to look forward to background checks later this year. It has been exciting to listen to you dream and think about where you want to be as a church and what you want to be doing. Zip Codes Groups and the people of St John’s have reached a’ new normal’: during Covid 19 I have witnessed more compassionate care and reaching out to our brothers and sisters of faith. It has been a highlight to get to connect with you all via zoom-I feel it is a connection that could not have been made in face to face bible studies at church. The sharing has touched my soul. We have addressed many risk management areas and am proud to say that our lay leadership has addressed it all with wisdom, clarity and commitment to St John’s. As we move forward during this pandemic, it has been inspiring to watch so many of you talk about and initiate “the new normal” for church and for the carrying out of the mission of Jesus Christ. The transition work has prepared St John’s to thrive not only during this pandemic but in the years to come. Continue to be the church together.

Transition (n): The process of a period of changing from one state or condition to another.

D

oes any word more appropriately define who we are as a church and a community right now? As the calendar year began, we as a congregation installed a Call Committee to move to the next stage of our life as a church. And then we suddenly needed to transition our means of worship, made the words “Zoom” and “Social Distancing” a regular part of any conversation, and had to find different ways to care for friends and family. Transition at Warp Speed! But transition - change - is innately who we are; it’s how we react to that change that defines us, because we’re never really static. As examples: Five years ago I was certain that I’d spend my entire life in Orlando, but now we call Knoxville our home. Or that 15 years ago I visited this church, and now I’m a member? And how did

4

my 8lb. baby boy suddenly get old enough to go to college?? Oh how quickly things can change... Each of us has a hundred stories of unexpected transition that helps us define who we are today. 2000 years ago Peter, Andrew, James and John were fishing and suddenly were asked to put down their nets and follow Jesus...transition in the blink of an eye. How they reacted defined them they were called, and they followed. So the transition at St. John’s continues, as it always has, and we as a congregation will continue to embrace that change, because that is who we are, and how we have reacted to changes in our past. As Paul wrote in his letter to the church of Philippi: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Peace, Scott Krogmann Council President

March Milestones Since our installation on Sunday, March 1, the Call Committee has met nearly every week. We enthusiastically embraced the challenge of reading valuable input captured from the Zip Code gatherings led by Pastor Jean and Congregational meetings led by the Transition Team. The Transition Team shared the “Look Back – Look Forward” results and the community input. All of this input was important and invaluable for development of the Mission Site Profile (MSP). An MSP describes our congregation, our priorities, needs, and qualifications for Senior Pastor applicants.

April Milestones We officially posted the Ministry Site Profile (MSP) for St. John’s Senior Pastor position to the ELCA website. This was twice reviewed by Bishop Kevin Strickland and Church Council. On April 5, the Church Council unanimously approved the hard work of the team to be able to submit an official document that depicts our congregation, church, and pastoral priorities. On April 7, four weeks to the day from our starting point, we completed this particularly important step in the process. We had a successful call with Bishop Strickland mid-April and were presented with several candidates. Candidates submit a Rostered Ministry Profile (RMP) through the ELCA website. We were also advised of the protocol for first interviews during the COVID19 restrictions, so we utilized Zoom for first interviews. As a matter of confidentiality, names and parishes where candidates serve must remain within the team.

May Milestones We had a “mock” interview with a local Pastor to fine tune our process and test our questions before we moved forward to “live” interviews. We are currently abiding by the guidelines put forth by the ELCA – Southeastern Synod regarding the use of video interviews. As we pray prior to each interview, we request you also ask for the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to be present and lead both the candidates and the St. John’s call process in a truly spirit-led manner. Please continue holding the Call Committee up in prayers as we discern the interviews and our reviews of the candidates.

race, mercy and peace to you in the name of the Lord. We hope this greeting finds you and your family healthy and safe.

As we enter the next phase of our transition, we will say goodbye to Pastor Vargo and her family. Pastor Vargo’s last official day with our congregation will be June 30. In her role as our interim senior pastor, Pastor Vargo has enabled our congregation to grow in a variety of ways. She has helped us listen to one another and create goals for our future as a worshipping body. With her help, we have greatly increased our financial transparency and our ability to live within our means, we have built a solid foundation in our updated governing documents, and we now have a team-based, layled ministry which leverages the varied talents of our congregation. We especially appreciate her leadership in this unusual time. Because of COVID-19, this has been an especially challenging time to be a pastor. Therefore we wish to celebrate Pastor Vargo’s time with us, and thank her generously for bringing her gifts to our congregation. On Sunday, June 14, we will host an outdoor celebration at the Vargo home. On their ten-acre property, we will have space to be together while practicing safe social distancing. You are invited to join us at their home, 2134 Asbury Rd, Knoxville, 37914, from 11 am-2:30 pm. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket and your own picnic lunch and a mask to wear when not eating. We will celebrate Holy Communion as a church family, so bring your own communion bread and a wine glass. We wish to thank Pastor Vargo with a generous love offering. You may direct your gift in all the ways in which you regularly give to St. John’s: through our online offering portal or by sending a check to the church office. Please indicate that you are giving to the Vargo Love Offering in your check memo or by selecting the appropriate fund online. Gifts are appreciated by June 28 so that we may present this offering to Pastor Vargo at the end of her tenure. We look forward to seeing you in person on June 14 at the Vargo homestead.

ugene Peterson writes: “When we submit our lives to what we read in scripture, we find that we are not being led to see God in our stories but our stories in God's. God is the larger context and plot in which our stories find themselves. ”

So this summer, let’s continue to explore how our stories are part of God’s larger, beautifully colored story! Here are the plans from the Faith Formation Team, led by Anne Langendorfer and countless other folks committed to Bible study, book groups, intentional conversations, and the exploration of spiritual disciplines: Preschoolers and Elementary Students will enjoy at-home resources—suggested teaching plans, video links to YouTube, and possible Zoom meet ups—provided by Lauren Kimzey and Nancy Friedrich. All you need will be sent via e-mail; additionally, we will make resources available on the church website and the St. John’s website. Youth will have the opportunity for weekly Zoom meet-ups to catch up and share faith-filled thoughts regarding TED Talks curated by members of the Youth Group. Beginning Tuesday, June 9 at 9:41 PM, I will serve as the meeting host; I’m looking forward to learning together. E-mail reminders will arrive with links to TED Talks and all the details on the Friday before our Tuesday night gatherings! Adults will meet up for a Sunday morning virtual coffee hour via Zoom at 10:10 AM during June; warm beverages and faith-filled conversations will allow Anne and her team to put together an intentional adult series for July. Additionally, the group who read Canoeing the Mountains, Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory is planning to engage in deeper consideration of our response during the summer months by inviting additional folks to read and gather for socially-distanced conversations. More details will follow via e-mail, weekly e-news, and announcements on St. John’s social media platforms. Finally, if you are looking for some summer reads, please consider the following suggested options: The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen Ruthless Trust by Brennan Manning Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People by Nadia Bolz-Weber Almost Everything: Notes on Hope by Anne Lamott The Power of Love: Sermons, Reflections, and Wisdom to Uplift and Inspire by Bishop Michael Curry The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene’ Brown Miracles and Other Reasonable Things: A Story of Unlearning and Relearning God by Sarah Bessey The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer The Screwtape Letters by C.S.

TYSON HOUSE CAMPUS MINISTRY

Tyson House: In Person or Online, The Mission Stays the Same

A

fter a great start to spring semester, with an ice cream social at The Phoenix and a new Garden Club, it became clear just before spring break that coronavirus was a real concern. UT moved almost everything online, and Tyson House did too. Three of our eight residents still lived at the center, then one as more went home, and now we’re edging back to four, as students return for internships and jobs. Jessi Grieser, St. John’s Council VP, is also a UT Professor and a member of Tyson House Council and has convened a new Safety Team to determine CDC-complaint ministry practices, so students at Tyson House can stay well and safe. One thing we noticed early was that students, whose classes all moved to Zoom, were plum worn out on video formats, so we offered worship by “A Taste of Tyson House,” a PDF email devotional with an accompanying Spotify playlist. Each week, we added something, like mp3’s of students reading scripture and giving homilies. We did move to Zoom for Easter Evening, with music from Pastor John’s piano and a digitally enhanced chapel as a Zoom background for Father RJ to preach from.

Ice Cream at the Phoenix

Buying Plants at Stanley’s

Lucas, one of our residents, sewed masks to protect our community and worked with Father RJ and Pastor John to weed and prune the grounds. Elijah, our Head Resident and Worship Chair, made sure plumbing flowed and hymns were prayerfully selected. Ezra, our intern, kept Zoom office hours, helping people feel loved and heard. Madison, one of next year’s residents, polled students to see how they’d like to serve in the fall. Caitlynne, our Administrator, kept bills paid and took on responsibilities of managing grant reporting.

Digitally Decorated for Easter

Online or in person, the mission stays the same: love God, love your neighbor, and love yourself, in Jesus’s name. We keep doing that, helping students and young adults grow as leaders, and God keeps blessing and making it beautiful!

A MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL CHURCH

T

he Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) reaffirms its commitment to combating racism and white supremacy following the recent murders of Black Americans. Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Dreasjon (Sean) Reed, and George Floyd were our neighbors. Ahmaud Arbery was chased down, shot, and killed by a retired police officer and his son while jogging in Brunswick, Ga. (Feb. 23, 2020). Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was shot eight times by Louisville Metro Police Department officers who entered her apartment while serving a "no-knock warrant" (March 13, 2020). Dreasjon (Sean) Reed, a 21-year-old from Indianapolis died after being shot at least eight times by an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer (May 6, 2020). George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis while begging for his life, a block away from Calvary Lutheran, an ELCA congregation (May 25, 2020). As the Conference of Bishops, we condemn the white supremacy that has led to the deaths of so many unarmed Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Color in our country. We grieve with, pray for and stand in solidarity with the families and friends of all whose loved ones have been and continue to be victims of injustices run amok, racist violence and the insidious venom of white supremacy. The ELCA's social policy resolution, "Condemnation of White Supremacy and Racist Rhetoric," adopted by the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, states: "As persons called to love one another as God has loved us, we therefore proclaim our commitment to speak with one voice against racism and white supremacy. We stand with those who are targets of racist ideologies and actions." As church, together we must work to condemn white supremacy in all forms and recommit ourselves to

confront and exorcize the sins of injustice, racism and white supremacy in church and society and within ourselves as individuals and households. On May 21, the ELCA Southeastern Synod hosted a webinar: "Becoming the Body of Christ – Condemning White Supremacy" in response to the killing of Ahmaud Arbery. This is one of many strategic opportunities happening across this church to address white supremacy and racist rhetoric. On June 17, we will gather again as church to commemorate the Mother Emanuel 9 and to repent of racism and white supremacy. An online ELCA prayer service, including leaders from across the church and Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton as preacher, is being planned for June 17, 2020, marking the fifth anniversary of the martyrdom of the Emanuel 9. We encourage congregations to reaffirm their commitment to repenting of the sins of racism and dismantling white supremacy that continue to plague this church by marking this day of penitence with study and prayer leading to action. https:// www.elca.org/emanuelnine
