EPISCOPAL RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT SERVES ZAMBIA By the Very Rev. Sam Candler Dean of the Cathedral For many years now, I have been honored to know the work of a great organization named “Episcopal Relief and Development.” Episcopal Relief and Development calls itself “the compassionate response of The Episcopal Church to human suffering in the world.” Their mission statement includes these words: “Hearing God's call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being, Episcopal Relief and Development serves to bring together the generosity of Episcopalians and others with the needs of the world.” Episcopal Relief and Development raises money from all sorts of places, and especially from individuals, congregations, and dioceses across the Church. With those resources, Episcopal Relief and Development “provides relief in times of disaster and promotes sustainable development by identifying and addressing the root causes of suffering.” Its mandate comes from the words of Jesus found in Matthew 25: “Lord, when was it that We saw you hungry and gave you food? We saw you thirsty and gave you something to drink? We saw you a stranger and welcomed you? We saw you sick and took care of you? We saw you in prison and visited you?” “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” —Matthew 25:37-40 (NRSV) Episcopal Relief and Development works in collaboration with church partners and other local organizations to facilitate healthier, more fulfilling lives in communities that are struggling with hunger, poverty, disaster, and disease. They also work around the world and here in the U.S. responding to and rebuilding after disasters, and their programs impact the lives of over 3 million people annually. I am honored to have received an invitation from Gay Jennings, President of the House of Deputies, and Rob Radtke, President and CEO of Episcopal Relief and Development, to witness firsthand some of ERD’s exciting work. In the next ten days, I will be visiting Zambia with them. We will be reviewing, especially the work of the Zambian Anglican Council Outreach Program. Please pray for us! Here is their description of ZACOP: The Zambian Anglican Council Outreach Program is the development arm of the Zambian Anglican Church, coordinating development work and resources in the five dioceses of Zambia. Through its partnership with Episcopal Relief and Development, a national development office was established to support integrated community development in the dioceses. By the end of 2007, ZACOP was fully staffed with visible achievements in the area of health specifically in malaria, as one of the first it was the pilot countries for NetsforLife®. The Early Childhood Development Program that is currently being implemented in the five dioceses is a largely volunteer driven program that integrates previous intervention in the areas of maternal health, HIV/AIDS, nutrition and sanitation in holistically addressing the developmental needs of children under six years of age and their caregivers. It is always a great honor to represent The Cathedral of St. Philip around God’s kingdom, and this mission trip is no different. Through ERD, the Cathedral really does serve the world, and I am eager to benefit from the witness of fellow Christians in Zambia. But, again, do pray for us! Thank you!

THE VERY REV. TRACEY LIND: THE SPIRITUALITY OF DEMENTIA On Sunday, April 7 at 10:10 a.m., the Very Rev. Tracey Lind will speak at

the Dean’s Forum on the spirituality of dementia. Tracey and her spouse Emily Ingalls are traveling across North America sharing the insights they’ve gained from a life complicated by dementia. A retired Episcopal priest and city planner, Tracey was diagnosed with the early stages of Frontotemporal Degeneration in 2016. Emily, who spent more than 20 years in commercial real estate and project management, now considers herself Chief Logistics Officer, responsible for managing a life and home turned upside down by this disease.

Why Resiliency is So Important to Teach to and Nurture in Our Kids Our Raising Youth Series is back with Kathy Roberts coming to speak on Sunday, April 7 at 6 p.m. As pendulums do, they will swing through a wide arc and swing right back. In the last decade, the parenting pendulum took us through a period of overprotection, helicopter parenting, and smoothing out the bumps and valleys of our children’s lives. Mostly out of fear and good intentions, we DID lots of things for our kids that they could have done for themselves. Our kids became Dis–abled, Dis-couraged, and lost confidence in their own skills. Most are now learning how to fail and recover at the age of 25, which is not ideal. But we parents are resilient and can learn a new way (or an old way!) to En-able and En-courage our kids to live independently, confidently and resiliently. Come share and learn with us as we see how we got to this place and how to change our path forward. Please RSVP to Maggie Paul, mpaul@cathedralATL.org.

OUTREACH CATHEDRAL PROVIDES RECORD SUPPORT FOR BCM’S NEW “CLIENT CHOICE” FOOD PANTRY St. Anne’s Guild heartily thanks all at the Cathedral for their generous support of Buckhead Christian Ministry’s new “Client Choice” food assistance program. As administrators of the parish’s semi-annual drives for BCM, St. Anne’s can happily and gratefully report that $10,618 was raised in February. This total is a record high when compared to the past five years of giving and will enable BCM to more efficiently stock their newly renovated and technologically updated food pantry. Goals are for individualized attention to client health and choice, as well as heightened quality and inventory control through partnership with local food suppliers. Our parish story of support in February goes well beyond the Atrium ingathering each Sunday morning. The Cathedral youth sold wonderful homemade soups for their Soup-er Bowl Sunday challenge, raising $1,725. Children’s ministry leader Sara Chapman (also a St. Anne’s member) personally stocked her Children’s Chapel Store where the children could then purchase and donate boxed cereal, diaper wipes, and bottled water. Likewise, Cathedral

SERVE WITH THE HABITAT TEAM Our next Habitat home will be built on Saturdays from April 6 through June 8 (skipping Easter and Memorial Day weekends). We welcome past builders and new builders.

Preschool Director Laurie Campbell, her staff, and Preschool Community Service Committee members Elizabeth Gurley and Caroline Haddow orchestrated the participation of their students. Coinciding with the 100th day of school and learning to count to 100, hundreds of donated items were all counted and blessed during preschool chapel time. The combined giving from Sara’s children and the Preschool’s students yielded 128 boxes of cereal, five cases of bottled water, 60 packages of baby wipes, and 15 children’s books for the BCM office’s reading nook. The monetary value of these wonderful donations was estimated to be over $900. Thank you to all who participated!
