If you are powerless or are losing power, or if you live without privilege, or if you have lost something significant in life – lost a loved one, lost an ability, lost being attractive, strong, agile, dexterous, competent, healthy, desirable – then you will hear what Jesus says about the last becoming first, not as an arduous adjudication, but as a welcome invitation. You still belong.

Free Moms Hugs

The first Blount Pride Event takes place on Saturday, Aug 24!It does not include a parade, but will be a series of family-friendly events at The Bird & The Book in Maryville, from 3-10pm. Please contact me for the specific list of events/times. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend. Andy and I will be in Nashville for the statewide GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) planning session for this next school year. It was difficult to choose just one of these great events! We hope that by going to Nashville we will learn more ways for us at St. Andrew’s to support the LBGTQ youth of East TN. It would be great for St. Andrew’s to have a visible presence (St. Andrew’s t-shirts and FMH/FDH t-shirts) at Blount Pride even though I won’t personally be able to attend. I know it is just around the corner. Please contact me if you are able to attend, so we can put together a plan for our presence.

Holy Conversations

Dear Friends,

For the Search Committee, I want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your engaging with us in Holy Conversation. Over ninety parishioners of St. Andrew’s participated in Holy Conversation, and I truly believe most, if not all, will agree that, as we laughed together, cried together, and shared our stories within our groups, the Spirit was present and guiding us to a deeper understanding of where we are, where we are going, and who we want to be as parish, doing God’s work in this portion of God’s vineyard.

The next step in the process is drafting the Parish Profile. What we learned during the Holy  Conversations will be of invaluable assistance in the Search Committee’s preparation of the Parish Profile.

We are grateful for your prayers and expressions of support in this work for the St. Andrew’s family, and we appreciate all who engaged with the Search Committee in Holy Conversation.

Let us bless the Lord. Thanks be to God.

Faithfully yours,

Doug Overbey
Search Committee Chair

A Prayer for Our Search Committee

Almighty God, look graciously on the people of St. Andrew’s. Be with us and lead us as we seek the next rector for our church. We ask for your direction and guidance for those who shall choose our new spiritual leader, that we may receive a caring and faithful pastor who will inspire your people and equip us for our ministries.

Grant to the search committee perception, faithfulness, and joy so that they may hear your voice in all their deliberations. Grant them also the desire and ability to truly hear each other and those who have entrusted them with this process. Give them courage to respond and act as you lead them. Come Holy Spirit, We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Holy Conversations

Dear Friends,

In our previous messages in the St. Andrew’s Weekly, the Search Committee related how we sensed an eagerness on the part of the congregation to engage in Holy Conversation with the Search Committee in preparation of the Parish Profile. In that regard, we are pleased to report that 72 members of the congregation have so far taken part in Holy Conversations. 

We want to express our gratitude to all who have engaged with the Search Committee in Holy Conversation and invite anyone who has yet to participate to do so Sunday, August 4, after either the 8:00 am or 10:30 am service. Please come to the Great Hall for hospitality following either of the services on August 4 and enjoy some refreshment, and we will then organize and move to the Library for Holy Conversation.

As before, the Search Committee is mindful of your time and will move the conversation along while giving every person participating an opportunity to engage. Please allow about an hour and fifteen minutes for Holy Conversation.

In closing, we are grateful for your prayers and expressions of support in this work for the St. Andrew’s family. Thank you.

Faithfully yours,

Doug Overbey, Search Committee Chair

One session will occur following the 8:00 am service and coffee minute, and the other will occur following the 10:30 am service and coffee minute. Depending on how many folks participate, the Holy Conversations will take place in either the Library or Parish Hall. All you have to do to participate is to show up following either of the services. The Search Committee will have the necessary supplies.

If you cannot participate today, there will be other opportunities, but why not take part in one of these first two  congregation-wide Holy Conversations? The Search Committee is mindful of your time and will move the conversations along while giving everyone an opportunity to engage and participate. Please allow between an hour and an hour and a half.

We look forward to engaging with you in Holy Conversation.

When you pray for your loved ones, you don’t really need words. If a loved one is in need of healing, remember the story of the four friends holding up their paralyzed friend on a mat before Jesus. Without words, just imagine holding your loved one before Jesus. It can be very hard work. But they didn’t give up. And neither should we.

While many of us may never face the real possibility of martyrdom, Jesus is calling us to an active and courageous giving of our lives for the sake of the gospel. Naturally, this can give rise to other fears – doubt, insecurity, impatience, anxiety, confusion, and anger – all of which can paralyze us and keep us from the life of abundance that God wants for us. Jesus is calling us to take one step at a time in faith, with the assurance that He is God Emmanuel; that is ‘God with us.’

A Letter From Anna Graham

Dear St. Andrew’s,

Thank you so much for all your support and prayers and help with the funeral service and reception. It was so wonderful to see good friends and we felt your love.

Mother loved her St. Andrew’s family, and loved being a part of pottery and EfM. We will always be so thankful for the way St. Andrew’s wrapped arms around her, my grandfather Earl, and Shawn & our girls Meredith & Ellie.

Love,
Anna Graham

Holy Conversations

That is the title of a series of meetings in the coming days and weeks to involve every parishioner of Saint Andrews in the search process for a new rector.

Holy Conversations is part of the Search Committee’s fulfilling a charge from the Vestry to create a parish profile. This profile, a self portrait of our parish today, will help define the best fit for our next rector and to attract the best candidates.

At the meetings, parishioners will be asked to answer a few provocative questions and to discuss those answers in small group settings. The results will be a key element in development of the parish profile.

Dates, time, and place for Holy Conversations will be announced through the Saint Andrews Weekly and other channels. Please make every effort to attend a session.

Thank you for your prayerful support of the search effort.
