Belonging with Purpose – St. Stephen’s Nursery School – by Noelle Carr, Director

St. Stephen’s Nursery School celebrates 50 years in 2019! We want them to know there is a God who loves them

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6

St. Stephen’s Nursery School celebrates 50 years in 2019! SSNS transitioned to an Episcopal preschool in 2013 and joined the National Association of Episcopal Schools. As part of the school’s Episcopal identity, each class holds monthly Chapel, says grace before lunch, and the school has a commitment to love each child as part of God’s family. The school has also embraced service with an ongoing Diaper Ministry to donate diapers to local food pantries and Christmas Angel Trees to provide Christmas gifts to children in Danbury. Our school has donated more than 4,000 diapers and hundreds of Christmas gifts since we started these programs.

In September the children were introduced to our monthly Chapel program, and they learned that Chapel is when we learn about God. We talked about how God is our Father in Heaven and Jesus is his son and how they love us as a parent loves their child. We introduced the Beginner’s Bible and how the Bible is a special book that teaches us about God. Each child that is new to our school was presented with their own Beginner’s Bible to bring home and share with their family. Our hope is that this provides an important school-home connection and supports each family on their faith journey. Many parents have shared that their child loves to read their Bible at home, and that their whole family says our lunchtime prayer before dinner each night!

For many families, the faith foundation at St. Stephen’s Nursery School is the only “church” their child receives on a regular basis. If you want a child to appreciate art, science or music, you introduce it at a young age. We believe the same is true for a child’s faith. We want them to know there is a God who loves them. SSNS is one of only two faith-based preschools in Ridgefield, and many parents seek out our school so their child will have a school experience that includes Chapel, prayer, and service. Our Episcopal identity has also reached beyond our school walls to impact our families in other ways. We have a Parent Care Team that provides support to SSNS families in crisis through prayer and meals, and several SSNS Moms attend Moms Connect, a faith-based book study at St. Stephen’s Church.

After Chapel in school one day, a child ran to her Mom at pick up and said, “Mommy, guess what? God created EVERYONE!” Those moments, those lessons, are a part of our school every day. We are looking forward to another wonderful year here at St. Stephen’s!

Belonging with Purpose – Living our Faith, “with God’s help.”

One way in which we seek to carry out our promises is in our daily corporate life, otherwise known as politics.

Yesterday we celebrated All Saint’s Day, a particular feast day of the church.  Since the 4th century, Christians have remembered the faithful departed, known and unknown.  One way in which we commemorate this day is with baptisms.  Gathered in Sunday worship, we welcome new Christians  into the household of God. 

Baptism in the Episcopal Church includes the Question and Answer format of The Baptismal Covenant.  The Baptismal Covenant outlines some ways that we can live into the promises of baptism.  God’s promise to us is salvation now and forever.  We seek to live into that promise in the way that we live our lives.

-Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers?

-Will you persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?

-Will you proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ?

-Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?

-Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?

Our answer to each one is “I will, with God’s help.”

One way in which we seek to carry out our promises is in our daily corporate life, otherwise known as politics.  There is no pristine or clear direction for applying our faith to politics.  Every good solution has places of error.  Even in our attempt to do good, we can be harmful.  And completely avoiding suffering is impossible.  Thus, humble and prayerful service is the place from which we engage our political life.

Although not all Episcopalians are progressives, it’s the progressive voices of the Episcopal Church that have most effectively united their faith to political engagement.  If you’d like to be aware of some of these resources, please email Rev. Whitney at waltopp@ststephens-ridgefield.org

“Love your neighbor” is the phrase that we return to again and again.  This phrase comes from the story of the lawyer who, “wanting to justify himself,” asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”  Jesus goes on to tell the story of the Good Samaritan who attended to the one who “fell into the hands of robbers.” 

“Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” Jesus asked the lawyer.  “The one who showed him mercy,” the lawyer replied.  Jesus said to him, “God and do likewise.”  Luke 10:25-37

Our response is that which we say in our Baptismal Covenant- “I will, with God’s help.”

Belonging with Purpose- The Place of Music by Alcee Chriss

I take great pride in being able to work in a religious institution that praises God in many musical languages.

While many of our parishioners are aware that music plays a central role in the worship and mission of the church, we often forget the ways in which the process of music making strengthens relationships and provides a healthy outlet for those who may be overwhelmed by the stresses of daily life. Just as the sanctuary provides a “safe-haven” from the chaos of the outside world, the singing of sacred music gives us the opportunity to escape from a culture that seems focused on material wealth, physical image, and social standing.

Amidst the spiritual and community building benefits of making music, there also exists the inclination to create hierarchies that categorize different genres of music as being “lesser” and “greater.” The Episcopal Church has historically been known for its musical greatness; complex and refined compositions make up the bulk of our musical repertoire. This is an important aspect of our history – as the Roman Catholic Church began to simplify liturgical music during Vatican II, the Episcopal Church dug farther into its musical roots, expanding complex musical structures dating back to Renaissance composers such as Thomas Tallis and Orlando Gibbons.

Here at Saint Stephen’s, we take pride in our heritage of Anglican music, but we recognize that this is not our only method of praising God. At our Evensong service on Sunday, November 3 (5:00 PM), we will experience the glory of organ and choir in an undoubtedly Anglican service; we will find solace in those hymns and anthems that combine compositional refinement with memorable and accessible melodies. This service stands in direct contrast to our Jazz Vespers service, which we offered in September. Both of these contrasting services, however, are a part of our identity.  Whether we are singing simple jazz melodies or complex settings of Anglican chant, we recognize that these songs are simply vehicles to further the glory of God in the world around us. I take great pride in being able to work in a religious institution that praises God in many musical languages.

Belonging with Purpose – An Episcopal School

Belonging with Purpose – Annual Convention Eucharist Invitation

Dear Clergy Companions in Christ: We are looking forward to our 235th Annual Convention of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut this October 26-27 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. The Convention will include an ECCT-wide Eucharist on Sunday, October 27 beginning at 11:00 a.m. with a wonderful diocesan-wide breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m. We are calling our time together on Sunday, “We’ve Come This Far By Faith.” This celebration marks both our common life as the Episcopal Church in Connecticut over the centuries as well as the work we have accomplished in the first year of our Season of Racial Healing, Justice, and Reconciliation.

Gracing us at our Convention Eucharist on October 27 as our preacher will be the Rt. Rev. Barbara C. Harris, Bishop Suffragan, Resigned of the Diocese of Massachusetts. As you know Bishop Harris was the first woman ordained to the episcopate in the Anglican Communion; and this year we celebrate with her the 35th anniversary of her ordination as bishop. Bishop Harris is an inspiring and engaging preacher who will call us to live the loving, liberating, life-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“We’ve Come This Far By Faith” is an exciting opportunity for us to gather together as a united diocesan Body of Christ for faithful and inspiring worship. This celebration is free and open to all in ECCT and beyond. It is our hope that there will be participants in this joyful celebration from every parish and worshiping community across ECCT. If every parish and worshiping community sends 12 people, we will quickly fill all two thousand available seats. Please register for “We’ve Come This Far by Faith” at: https://conventionworship2019.eventbrite.com 

Some clergy and lay leaders across ECCT are inquiring how to handle services in their local congregations for those who will not be attending our worship in Hartford. After discussing the matter with the Convention Planning Team, we suggest the following possibilities. It is up to you in your own contexts and congregations to decide the best way forward.

Morning Prayer

As many of us recall, previous to the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, Morning Prayer was the principal service in most congregations on Sunday mornings. If a clergy person will not be available to your parish because of attendance at “We’ve Come This Far By Faith” a layperson could lead Morning Prayer. To this end, Bishop Ian offered a workshop for laity at Spring Training on how to lead Morning Prayer. With a little preparation, a layperson or a team of laypeople are easily empowered to lead Morning Prayer, and deliver a sermon or homily for those gathered.

Early Morning Eucharist

For those of you within a one-hour drive of Hartford — which is more than half of our parishes — another option is to hold an early morning Eucharist for those who will not be joining us in Hartford. (We appreciate that many ECCT parishes hold an early morning Eucharist already so this would not be an additional service.) This option allows enough time, after worship, for clergy to drive to Hartford for the 11:00 a.m. Eucharist at the Convention Center.

Live-Streamed Worship

Our Convention Planning Team will have a live video stream of the worship service on Sunday morning. After holding a worship service (whether Morning Prayer or an early morning Eucharist), parishioners might gather together to watch the worship service as it unfolds in Hartford. Bishop Harris’ sermon is sure to inspire. While the distribution of communion in the local context is not a part of this viewing, it is an excellent opportunity to gather together with other parishes nearby to watch the service and share fellowship. The service bulletin will be made available for people to follow along and join in prayer. This is a great collaborative option and we recognize that not all churches or parish halls are technically equipped for projecting a live video stream. If you are able to live-stream the service, please provide the Rev. Adam Yates, Secretary of Convention, with your contact information so that we are able to communicate this option to all of the people in ECCT. We encourage you to reach out to you others in your Region as well. If you have questions about Convention and its worship service on Sunday, October 27, please be in touch with the Convention Planning Team by contacting Adam Yates (ayates@episcopalct.org) or either of us. We look forward to celebrating with you on October 27! Please do everything in your power to attend “We’ve Come this Far By Faith.” It is an important opportunity both to worship together as the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and to be inspired by one of the great and historic leaders of the Church: Bishop Barbara Harris,

Faithfully,

The Rt. Rev. Ian T. Douglas         The Rt. Rev. Laura J. Ahrens

Bishop Diocesan Bishop Suffragan

Belonging with Purpose- Kicking off our Program Year

Part of the purpose of the church is to nurture the life of faith within the people who attend

Part of the purpose of the church is to nurture the life of faith within the people who attend. Christian faith is something that grows with a little water and sunlight over time, slowly and surely. Our program year begins on September 15 with opportunities for spiritual growth for all ages at 9am!

Our Path Workshop will be segregated into adult, youth, and children, with each age group studying the same story. This makes it a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and learning. You’ll discover you’re not the only one who feels like you’re reading these stories for the first time. Furthermore, as human nature has remained largely unchanged over the last 100,000 years, your life will be enriched by the engagement with these stories (yet again?) in this particular stage and circumstance of life. All groups will meet in North Hall.

Church School will resume at the 10am hour. The kids (Pre-K thru 5th grade) will stay in North Hall throughout the entire service.

After the 10am service, there will be refreshments and a bounce house on the lawn.

The entire community is needed for faith to be lived and nurtured! Hope that you’ll join in!

Belonging with Purpose: Commitment to Nonviolence

John Dear, teaches that nonviolence requires three simultaneous attributes: being nonviolent toward ourselves; being nonviolent to others, including creation; and joining the global grassroots movement of nonviolence.

In worship, we’ve been taking up the topic of nonviolence and how it is lived in our time. The reflection below from Richard Rohr reminds us of how fundamental nonviolence is to our Christian identity. To hear Mother Whitney’s call to the church on the topic of nonviolence, go to Sermons on our website and listen to August 18, 2019.

Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation

From the Center for Action and Contemplation

Nonviolence

Remembering Who We Already Are Monday, August 19, 2019

My longtime friend, Catholic priest and peace activist John Dear, teaches that nonviolence requires three simultaneous attributes: being nonviolent toward ourselves; being nonviolent to others, including creation; and joining the global grassroots movement of nonviolence. John and the Franciscan organization Pace e Bene lead an annual Campaign Nonviolence (September 14-22, 2019), working toward a culture “free from war, racism, poverty, and environmental destruction.” [1] In John’s words: What does it mean to be nonviolent? Coming from the Hindu/Sanskrit word ahimsa, nonviolence was defined long ago as “causing no harm, no injury, no violence to any living creature.” But Mohandas Gandhi insisted that it means much more than that. He said nonviolence was the active, unconditional love toward others, the persistent pursuit of truth, the radical forgiveness toward those who hurt us, the steadfast resistance to every form of evil, and even the loving willingness to accept suffering in the struggle for justice without the desire for retaliation. . . . Another way to understand nonviolence is to set it within the context of our identity. Practicing nonviolence means claiming our fundamental identity as the beloved [children] of the God of peace. . . . This is what Jesus taught: “Blessed are the peacemakers; they shall be called the sons and daughters of God [Matthew 5:9]. . . . Love your enemies and pray for your persecutors, then you shall be sons and daughters of the God who makes [the] sun rise on the good and the bad, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust” [Matthew 5:44-45]. In the context of his visionary nonviolence—radical peacemaking and love for enemies—Jesus speaks of being who we already are. He talks about our true identities as if they propel us to be people of loving nonviolence. . . . Living nonviolence requires daily meditation, contemplation, study, concentration, and mindfulness. Just as mindlessness leads to violence, steady mindfulness and conscious awareness of our true identities lead to nonviolence and peace. . . . The social, economic, and political implications of this practice are astounding: if we are [children] of a loving Creator, then every human being is our [sibling], and we can never hurt anyone on earth ever again, much less be silent in the face of war, starvation, racism, sexism, nuclear weapons, systemic injustice and environmental destruction. . . . Gandhi said Jesus practiced perfect nonviolence. If that’s true, then how . . . did he embody creative nonviolence so well? The answer can be found at the beginning of his story, at his baptism. . . . Jesus hears a voice say, “You are my beloved son; with you I am well pleased.” Unlike most of us, Jesus accepts this announcement of God’s love for him. He claims his true identity as the beloved son of the God of peace. From then on, he knows who he is. He’s faithful to this identity until the moment he dies. From the desert to the cross, he is faithful to who he is. He becomes who he is, and lives up to who he is, and so he acts publicly like God’s beloved. Gateway to Presence: If you want to go deeper with today’s meditation, take note of what word or phrase stands out to you. Come back to that word or phrase throughout the day, being present to its impact and invitation. [1] Learn more about Pace e Bene’s Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions at paceebene.org.

Belonging with Purpose – Senior Luncheon*

Table fellowship is a primary practice throughout the scriptures as a means of encountering the sacred…

Religious institutions are one of the few remaining institutions that serve people for the duration of their lives. The church offers opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth across the lifespan. The Senior Luncheon is one such example of this commitment. In the spring and fall, when the weather is tame and travel is at a minimum, there is a once-a-month opportunity for seniors to gather for the Eucharist and a delicious meal. The first Thursday of the month (March-June & Sept-Dec), Lori Seibert and Sarah Bernhardt organize parishioners to offer a home-cooked meal, complete with centerpieces, coffee & dessert. Additionally, there is beautiful music played on the piano by George Ryder. The luncheon begins at 12:00 with a Eucharist. Seniors attend from town, including from Ballard Green and Laurel Ridge. St. Stephen’s parishioners and their friends are also encouraged to attend! Postcards are sent out monthly to remind folks about the luncheon. If you know someone who should receive a card, contact Ginny in the office. Table fellowship is a primary practice throughout the scriptures as a means of encountering the sacred. The rituals in the Old Testament about what to eat and what preparation was necessary to eat reflect the sacredness of the act of eating. Jesus welcomed all people to the table at which he sat, something the religious leaders found sacrilegious. It was at the table that Jesus taught his disciples. The Last Supper, when he broke the bread and shared it, as well as the wine, is the foundation for our weekly Eucharist. It was at the table, after his resurrection, that Jesus first revealed himself to Peter. Paul writes about table fellowship, what to do and not to do, in order that the holiness of eating together might be magnified. For this reason, opportunities for eating together are opportunities for holy fellowship. The first senior luncheon of the season will be on Thursday, September 5. If you would like to attend, or be a part of making it happen, please let Ginny, Lori, or Sarah know! What better way to spend an (almost) fall afternoon sharing a meal and engaging in fellowship with our brothers and sisters! By Lori Seibert, Marcy Kelly and Whitney Altopp *Belonging with Purpose is a weekly news update of how our purpose is being reflected through the collective and individual lives of St. Stephen’s.

Belonging with Purpose – Bishops United Against Gun Violence

Since last weekend, three young white men—all American citizens, all in legal possession of assault rifles—have murdered more than 30 people in cold blood. Most of the precious children of God who are dead and injured are people of color.

As Episcopalians, we are united to one another through the office of the Bishop. The Greek work (anglicized- episcopus) literally means “overseer.” It is this system of governance which supports and organizes Christians in the Episcopal Church, whether laity, priest, or deacon, to carry out their duty. For this reason, I share with you the letter sent out to all of those on the ECCT distribution list. To sign up to receive these e-newsletters go to https://www.episcopalct.org/enewsletters/

BISHOPS UNITED REPUDIATES CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM, SYSTEMIC RACISM White supremacy and gun violence coming to define our era, say Episcopal Church bishops AUGUST 6, 2019—Since last weekend, three young white men—all American citizens, all in legal possession of assault rifles—have murdered more than 30 people in cold blood. Most of the precious children of God who are dead and injured are people of color. When gun violence makes headlines, politicians supported by the National Rifle Association are quick to call white shooters “mentally ill,” while characterizing black and brown shooters as “criminals” and insisting that guns are not the problem. They choose to remain loyal to the gun lobby and its campaign contributions while denying the incontrovertible evidence that more guns mean more deaths. Common sense measures like universal background checks, assault weapons bans, handgun purchaser licensing, and restrictions on gun ownership by domestic abusers point the way toward sane gun policy that is well within any sensible interpretation of the Second Amendment. They are necessary and long overdue, but they are not sufficient. This latest sickening cluster of mass shootings has thrust into the headlines the deadly mix of white supremacy and gun violence that is coming to define our era of American history. Anti-immigrant sentiment is on the rise and our government holds asylum-seekers on our southern border in inhumane conditions. The president of the United States uses racist tropes and inflammatory language to incite crowds against people of color, refugees and immigrants; and hate crime reports have increased for three consecutive years. The hatred and fury that drives mass shootings can also be turned inward, where it fuels the invisible and growing death toll of gun suicides. As Christians, we must work actively to dismantle the systemic racism that is part of our country’s founding narrative and that continues to fuel mass shootings and urban gun violence today. We must insist that both our fellow Christians and our elected leaders repudiate white supremacy and white nationalism and embrace humane immigration policies that follow God’s command and the Biblical imperative to welcome the stranger in our midst. And we must refuse to participate in scapegoating people with mental illness, a ploy too often used to distract from the urgent yet simple need to enact common sense gun safety measures. Seven years ago yesterday, six people were murdered by a white supremacist at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. That massacre, one of two events that galvanized the creation of Bishops United Against Gun Violence, (the other was the shooting at Sandy Hook in Connecticut) brought us together across our differences to demonstrate that we believe in a God of life in the face of death. Today we are weary of witnessing the slaughter gripping our country. But we are no less determined to continue speaking, even when it seems our words make no difference; to continue praying in order to gather our strength to act; and to follow Jesus in speaking truth, especially when it seems that truth is out of season. Bishops United Against Gun Violence is a network of nearly 100 Episcopal Church bishops working to curtail the epidemic of gun violence in the United States. Learn more at bishopsagainstgunviolence.org and follow Episcopalians United Against Gun Violence on Facebook.
