Time to take a deep breath ...

Amidst the violence in Charlottesville and the rage in Durham, David Brooks suggests in today's NY Times that a little dose of modesty would do us all some good.

"But throughout history the wiser minds have understood that anger and moral posturing are not a good antidote to rage and fanaticism. Competing vitriols only build on each other ...

... the most powerful answer to fanaticism is modesty. Modesty is an epistemology directly opposed to the conspiracy mongering mind-set ...

Progress is not made by crushing some swarm of malevolent foes; it’s made by finding balance between competing truths ...

Modesty means having the courage to rest in anxiety and not try to quickly escape it. Modesty means being tough enough to endure the pain of uncertainty and coming to appreciate that pain. Uncertainty and anxiety throw you off the smug island of certainty and force you into the free waters of creativity and learning.

Over the next few months I’m hoping to write several columns on why modesty and moderation are superior to the spiraling purity movements we see today. It seems like a good time for assertive modesty to take a stand."

Installation - August 20

Rev. Jenny Shultz-Thomas preaching at a pulpit
On August 20, 2017 Community United Church of Christ will celebrate the Installation of its newest Pastor, Rev. Jenny Shultz-Thomas, who began her ministry at CUCC on January 1, 2017. In the United Church of Christ the “Installation is the liturgical celebration of the covenantal relationship among an ordained minister; the local church; and the Association.”

At a time such as this when even the ground beneath our feet seems to shift and burn with the tides, we as a nation are more hungry than ever for a word of HOPE. It has been said that religion in
the West is failing...dying, and that the political landscape of our time will siphon off what is left of organized religion. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, jr., who said, “Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war,” we remember that it is not for religion that we must organize, but peace.

As we continue in the stead of the many who have gone before us, including Dr. Martin Luther King, jr., Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi, the late Madiba (Nelson Mandela) and the Mother of prayer and servanthood, Mother Theresa, as well as our own modern day prophets such as Rev. Dr. William Barber, we gather in one Spirit, in covenant with all of Creation, towards a new religious ecology; called to love and serve that all might experience the love of God.

As a faith community who takes seriously the call to witness to and for the breadth of God’s extravagant and inclusive love Community United Church of Christ hosts this celebration in partnership with our community and invites you: local neighbors, friends and families of all faiths and manifestations of the Spirit to join us for this joyous occasion.

Please join us on Sunday, August 20 at 4:00pm 
for a Service of Installation and Reception 
for Rev. Jenny Shultz-Thomas

The garden is producing eggplant, peppers, tomatoes and squash. We have donated a little over 80 pounds to Plant a Row . Thank you to Carol Clark and Bill Lamb for donating from their gardens. Anyone can donate; just drop your vegetables off at the cash register at Logan's and tell them you are donating for CUCC. It will help our total and help feed the hungry!

Preschool This Fall
This fall we will be adding a preschool Sunday School class for children 3-K. We follow the Wake County Schools cutoff date for enrollment. A child must be three by August 31st to move from the nursery to the preschool class. We are excited to be able to offer this class. Our volunteers in the nursery, preschool and elementary class make it possible for us to do this. If you are interested in working with our children a couple of times a year please let Jenny know.
 
Third Grade Bibles
Traditionally the church presents Bibles to rising third graders. If you have a rising third grader please be sure you have sent Anne Bailey the name as you would like it printed on the Bible.  If you have an older child who has not received a Bible you may send his or her name to Anne Bailey also. We will be ordering Bibles the first week of August. The date of the presentation will be announced as soon as it is determined.

Seven Steps to Becoming a Better Ally

Have you ever noticed that, even in our work for social justice, we often end up working alongside people who are largely similar to ourselves? Similar in terms of class, race, education level, culture, religion, etc.? Although we usually agree that diverse coalitions are more just and more effective, getting there can be hard.

This series will explore what it means to be an ally--to work in solidarity with others from different backgrounds than ourselves to reach social justice goals. We will explore the internal work of understanding our own biases and privileges, and the external work of finding ally partners and building fair and responsible relationships. Participants will receive a copy of my forthcoming self-published book: The Education of a Novice Ally: Learning to be a Middle Class Ally in the Work to End Poverty. (Reading the book is not required to participate.) My ideas about allyship come from my experience working across class lines on economic justice and anti-poverty issues, but allyship is relevant to any social justice issue and any barriers of social division.

Please join with me in discerning how to bring an ethic of allyship/solidarity to the social justice efforts we undertake as individuals, members of organizations, and a people of faith.

September 17 thru November 5, 9:30-10:15AM, Fellowship Hall
Sponsored by: Economic Justice Task Force, Social Justice Ministry and the White Privilege Study Group
Facilitated by: Annaka Sikkink

If you would like to request a complimentary copy of Annaka's book, please email her NOW at asikkink@gmail.com or sign up in the fellowship hall after worship.   The book will be available Sept. 17.

The Wild Goose what?

Come to Jane and Gary Smith's home on Tuesday, August 22, from 7-8PM.  Over beer and snacks, the Smiths will regale you with stories from this summer's Wild Goose Festival.  RSVP to Jane so we have enough beer and she can give you directions.  Don't be shy; if we haven't met you yet, it's time we did!  Children are welcome to play in our garden room while you listen, as long as they don't need to be supervised by us. smithjeg@mindspring.com

Only one of many tents and activities.
Imagine several thousand people of all ages camping in the woods on NC's mountains for a long weekend. From 10am-6pm there are hour-long sessions, 8 choices at a time, on everything from how to build a cross-cultural coalition to healing from "whiteness" to how to write a song for the movement to the sacred stories of tattoos (and you could get one there!).  Participate in a live-streamed podcast, attend a panel, brainstorm a justice problem, recite your poem at a slam, fashion something new at the art tent, or sip a frosty glass at the daily gathering to sing old hymns.  Interwoven are spiritual practices - communion with the Anglicans, symbol-rich worship with The Many, study

of mindfulness with a Buddhist monk, yoga by the river, and 12-step gatherings.  This year's 4 main tent worship services featured Trinity UCC's Rev. Otis Moss III & 35 members of their choir, Rev. William Barber, Rev. Nadia Boltz-Weber, and "nun on the bus" Sister Simone Campbell.  Every night we unwound with music on the main stage from jazz to country to folk, one performance after another, dancing encouraged.  A place where questions are the norm, post-Christian is the common language, and conversations with strangers become deep quickly, the festival is a place where justice, spirituality and the arts intertwine under the wings of the Wild Goose (an ancient Christian symbol of the Holy Spirit).

From the Pastor

I Have a Frisbee
Written by Vicki Kemper
June 27, 2017 (Reprinted from ucc.org)

Give me an undivided heart to revere your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart. - Psalm 86:11-12
     There's undivided, and then there's complete. There's whole, and then there's overflowing with radiant joy.
     Sister Helen of the Eucharist has been a nun for 67 years. That's a lot of time to revere God's name. "You were not born," she says, "and I was already a nun."
     She was nine years old when she wrote a letter to her parents saying she wanted to enter the convent; now she is 85. She loves Christ's body and blood so much that she made it part of her name.
     "I have a banquet every day," she smiles.
     She spends the better part of each day praying and singing, reading and doing a little manual labor.
     For most of us, "undivided" can sound both boring and scary. We worry about what we might miss if we gave more of our heart to God. It can be hard to imagine a life in which God alone is enough.
     Sister Helen had plenty of opportunities, but the one she constantly chose and re-chose was the path to God's heart. She believes our desire for God is more important than the path we take. She knows the joy of the chase and the wholeness that comes from perpetual praise.
     "I am extremely happy," she says.
     We don't have to leave the world to develop an undivided heart. We needn't live behind
cloistered walls to become whole. And who says life with God can't be fun?
     Sister Helen of the Eucharist, a former left-handed tennis champion, still loves to play.
     "I have a Frisbee," she says.

Prayer
    
For Frisbee-throwing nuns, I give you thanks with my whole heart. May I know such joy in following you.

Remembering Grace
June 23, 2017
Written by Emily Heath

"I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance. I know that you cannot tolerate evildoers; you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them to be false… But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.  Remember then from what you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first." 
- Revelation 2:2,4-5

Perhaps this is wrong, but I have a hard time trusting church people who never admit
imperfection.

I don't mean imperfection of the minor kind. I don't care that your kids' school lunches aren't perfectly balanced, or that you skipped yoga class three times last week. I mean real imperfection. You got addicted to something. You got fired from your job. Or you messed up big time and it was all your fault.

When people and things at a church are just a little too neat and tidy, I get a little curious about that church's spiritual life. Why? Because no one's life is neat and tidy, and Christians should be the first ones to admit that.

Christians are people who have received grace. We should be people who know at our bedrock that we once were broken badly, and that God loved us and lifted us up.

I was recently speaking at a conference and I was asked what I saw as the best indication that a congregation will die. I replied, "A church that is full of people who cannot tell you about God's grace in their own lives."

Why? Because people who know that they have received God's grace, and who don't forget it, know what church is all about. It's not about keeping up appearances. It's not about appearing morally righteous. It's not about saying the right things and getting ahead. It's about knowing that you once were lost and now are found.

Until we are a church full of people that can tell the stories of our rock bottoms without shame, we will never be a church that truly can share God's grace.

Prayer 

God, thank you for lifting me up. Please help me to remember that I did not pull myself up on my own. Amen.
