Calvary to Host Climate Forums, September 24&25

We need volunteers to help test a pilot program on Climate Choices, and how people in a democracy can work together to meet the challenges of a warming planet.
Two MU researchers will be coming to Calvary on September 24th and 25th to lead two focus groups.
The purpose of the groups is to gather opinions from a variety of perspectives; they particularly welcome people who may have questions about climate change, and policies intended to address it.
We need volunteers!
The two opportunities are:
Sunday, September 24, from 11:45-2:00 p.m.
Monday, September 25, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Lunch will be served Sunday, and a dinner Monday. Please phone the parish office to RSVP: 449-3194

The Commemoration of the Holy Cross, September 14

The Cross, and what it stands for, is absolutely central to Christian Faith.  Jesus once said, “If I be lifted up, I will draw the whole world to myself” (John 12:32).  He was speaking of his death on the Cross.  St. Paul calls the Cross the “wisdom of God” (1Corinthians 1:24).

Wednesday, September 14, is the Feast of the Holy Cross.  It commemorates the power and meaning of the Cross.  In the Gospel assigned for September 14 (John 3:13-17), Jesus expresses his hope that the whole world will be saved through him.

What does the Cross symbolize?  Self-sacrifice.  Forgiveness.  Love.  Given for the sake of others, to bring peace, unity, and wholeness.

In a world where many leaders are doing their best (worst?) to divide us one from another, the Cross of Christ provides a powerful counter-example.

“O Savior of the world, who by thy cross and precious blood hast redeemed us: Save us and help us, we humbly beseech thee, O Lord.”  (Book of Common Prayer, page. 282).
