TRURO FAMILY NEWS Healing Prayer Service

Matt Maher & Band at Truro, March 28–29

Sun March 21, 4 pm, Chapel

Benefiting 2010 Youth Pilgrimages And Mission Teams

There will be a service of Healing Prayer in the Truro Chapel, Sunday afternoon, March 21 at 4:00. Our guest speaker, Meg Saunders is convinced God invites us all to respond to His invitation for healing: physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. During her seven-year tenure as Director of Communications with the Senate Chaplain, she was challenged to think through various questions often asked in regards to our value as human beings, which led her to begin publishing a weekly column First Thoughts nearly ten years ago. She also co-produced “BELIEF,” a book on the reasons for faith, and is in the process of writing another book on the theology of relationality and the human heart, which she was invited to write while studying at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University. Meg Saunders, will encourage us to take our illnesses, troubles and sorrows to the Lord. Like Jesus to the blind man in the Gospels, our loving Father invites each of us to come to Him. He’s asking us, “Are You Willing?” We are assured He is more than able to meet us where we are, but first we must be willing to come. Join us for this healing service to come face to face with our Father.

Visiting Acolytes Welcome to visiting young Anglican bretheren from Christ Our King Anglican Church in New Braunfels, Texas! Ten acolytes from Christ Our King are on a DC visit during their spring break, and are attending Truro’s 11:15 service. The church’s small but growing congregation will soon be building their own sanctuary, and the acolytes were hoping to visit a “large” sister church and observe their worship service. Let us extend radical hospitality and fellowship to our family in Christ from Texas!

Matt Maher’s “Worship In Liturgy” Seminar How To Start Your Spring Break Off Right by Kirsten Boyd I can read your mind already. You are sitting there in your pew thinking, “I’m not a worship leader. I’m not a musician. (maybe you’re a high-schooler?) Why in the world would I want to give up my first day of Spring Break to listen to some talk about Worship and Liturgy?” Well, let me stop to correct you right there my friend, because the title is Worship IN Liturgy. As in—how does one use liturgy to come closer to God? Do I have your attention yet? Many folks here at Truro (myself included!) did not grow up in a liturgical worship tradition. Did you know, for example, that the Gradual Hymn, sung after the first reading signifies “gradual” steps or sequences leading us closer to the Gospel reading? Or that the reason the clergy wear those white dresses is a direct physical parallel to descriptions of heaven in Revelation? (Revelation 7:13–15) I had the opportunity to hear Matt Maher speak on liturgy at a WorshipTogether.com Worship Leaders Training Seminar last spring. Maybe it’s just because Matt has cool hair (like Tory), and his friendly persona radiates excitement about living a worshipping life—maybe it’s my fascination with the world of Liturgical worship. Whatever the reason I am fully confident you will really enjoy Matt’s talk. I hope you can join us for an exciting weekend with Matt and the Band, March 28th and 29th. Questions? Contact me (Kirsten Boyd, kboyd@trurochurch.org) or log onto the new and improved Truro website to register for the workshop!

Notice of Annual Meeting and Call for Vestry Nominations At our annual meeting on April 25th, Truro will elect seven new members of our 18-member Vestry to replace those whose terms are expiring. Once again we invite parishioners to prayerfully discern who, if anyone, God is leading them to nominate for Vestry service. These nominations come during a significant event in the life of our church. The Vestry is in the midst of a transition from focusing largely on the parish’s temporal affairs to discerning and setting spiritual direction for the congregation. Day-to-day management of temporal affairs will be delegated to paid staff and volunteers. Consequently, we are seeking new Vestry members with the vision and wisdom to discern God’s will and the calling to be peacemakers as we implement God’s will for our parish. In addition to the above attributes, each nominee must also be a confirmed member of Truro in good standing, over 18 years old, and faithful in corporate worship (unless prevented for good cause) and in working, praying, and tithing (or moving towards a tithe) for the spread of the Kingdom of God. Please submit nominations to Doug LeMasters at dlemasters@trurochurch.org or 703.273.1300 no later than March 16, 2010. If you have questions, please speak to John Petty at johnjpetty@cox.net, chairperson of the Vestry Nominating Committee, or any current Vestry member.
