SUNDAY

DEAN'S CLASS - Beginning Aug 9: Religious Freedom: Deepening the Conversation Note from Dr. Keller: Both in our state and nationwide, this Spring the scope and limits of religious freedom have been a topic of much political discussion. As a priest, I’ve not been afraid of controversy, but I found myself wary of this one—concerned and perplexed. Many friends were strongly committed to one side—by overwhelming vote, our Diocesan Convention opposed a piece of legislation (House Bill 1228) that purported to protect religious freedom. I abstained, as the topic seemed to me to involve a set of very important, complex questions. At this point, I’m more of mind to probe the questions than I am to take positions. So I thought of a way to do that. Clarke Tucker—who as Senior Warden asked me to come to Trinity—is now a State Representative. Taking positions is his job! Clarke is faithful and thoughtful, with a good lawyer’s understanding of the issues. I approach them as a theologian. Theology is “faith seeking understanding.” I asked Clarke if he would be willing to engage in a Sunday morning dialogue with me about religious freedom—and he readily accepted. In these conversations we will take up one or more questions and, from our different perspectives, share our convictions, insights, and questions—in the pursuit of understanding. Our goal will be to deepen the conversation. The sessions will take place on Sunday mornings at 10:15.

Here is the schedule:
September 6:How should state and federal laws address unjust discrimination?What should happen where requirements of the law may conflict with prerogatives of religious freedom?

Living the Questions:
Will join the Dean's class on Religious Freedom

Wear a Nametag on Sunday!  In order to be more welcoming to newcomers and members, we encourage everyone to wear a nametag, beginning this Sunday.  Nametags will be available at stations at the entrances to the Cathedral.  Please take a moment to fill one out and place it on your clothing.  Help us welcome our guests and one another!

Cathedral "Mini-Tours" offered each Sunday!  Our greeters offer brief mini-tours of the Cathedral every Sunday following the 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services. Newcomers, guests, and parishioners who wish to in learn about the rich, interesting history and architectural features of the church building are invited to take a tour. A greeter will be stationed in the baptistry in the rear of the church immediately following these two services.

SEARCH INFORMATION


SEARCH COMMITTEE UPDATE
 
There are now two remaining candidates for Dean and Rector. Members of the committee have completed one parish visit and will conduct another visit this weekend. During the week of August 31, a candidate will visit Little Rock for a meeting with the Vestry, the committee, and Dr. Keller, and be guided on a tour of the Cathedral and the city. The committee will decide during that week if the second candidate will be invited to visit here. We will update the parish family on next steps at that time.

Thank you for the continuing prayers for our work as we near the end of the process and the final recommendation to the Vestry and the Bishop. We hope to make that recommendation by the end of September.

GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION WORKSHOP

September 25-27 at Camp Mitchell


Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, PhD, a leading expert on shame, authenticity and belonging, shares what she's learned from a decade of research on the power of Wholehearted Living--a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.

In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough, and to go to bed at night thinking, 
Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.

During our weekend together, we will discuss these ten guideposts and create a journal that explores and celebrates our blessed imperfections.  Please read the book before the weekend!  All supplies will be provided - except for pictures and we will tell you what sort of pictures to bring with you.  

Cost is $175 and includes lodging, linens, meals, and art supplies.

Click here to reserve your spot!


Trinity t-shirts are still available! In case you missed them at the Trinity Sunday Picnic....Stop by Annie's office or email her at annie@trinitylittlerock.org. Please include your size and color (grey or green). She will be placing another order that includes children's sizes, so if you would like t-shirts for your children, please include that information as well. Cost is $15 and proceeds go to scholarships for the youth program.

USHERS NEEDED:
We are in need of ushers to welcome guests and parishioners for our services. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Kerry McCoy at: kerry@flagandbanner.com or 501-690-1700. It is fun, easy and a great way to get to know people.

Dr. Keller recently announced the organization of committees to work on different ministries and tasks here at the Cathedral. A list of committees and chairs can be found here.A descriptions of the committees can be located here.


MEETINGS AT THE CATHEDRAL:
Planning a meeting or event at the Cathedral?  We have become very busy and need your help so we can accommodate your meeting request.  Please pick up a scheduling form from the office so we can get you on the calendar. We need to know things like who is opening and closing, who is doing set up/take down, who is in charge etc.  Thanks for your help with this. Ideally we need this form 2 weeks before the meeting or event.


BE A READER OR CHALICE BEARER!  Trinity invites you to offer the ministry of being a Lector (reader of scripture at one of the Sunday services) and/or an Eucharistic Minister (server of the chalice during communion at one of the Sunday services).  With our expanded worship schedule, there are more opportunities to read and serve.  Depending on the number of volunteers we have, you can usually expect to read or serve once a month.  We will base your schedule around the Sundays you are available.  If you are interested or would like more information, contact Canon Paul McLain at 372-0294 or pmclain@trinitylittlerock.org.


We are also in need of Ushers and Greeters for the services.  If you are interested in any of these ministries or would like more information, contact Herschel Cast (casth@yahoo.com)

OPPORTUNITIES,NOTES & REMINDERS

HELP WANTED
We are in need of a faithful loving caregiver in our nursery.  Hours include Sunday morning and some evenings as parish events are scheduled.  Very part time.  Must be able to pass background check and drug test.  We want only the best for our young children. Please contact Dawn Howe (dhowe@trinitylittlerock.org) for an application or more information.
Gifting Appreciated Securities 

Did you know that you can give appreciated stock to the church?  With another year of record market gains, parishioners who pay their pledges by stock transfer are well positioned to be more generous. You can gift securities instead of cash to fulfill your current or future pledge and receive a charitable tax deduction for the appreciated value during the year in which the donation is made.  
 
If you've held it for more than one year, you may take a charitable tax deduction for the appreciated market value of the stock for that year, and neither you nor the church has to pay capital-gains taxes when the stock is sold. The contribution can result in a bigger deduction (and more tax savings) for you and a bigger gift for the church than if you sell the stock, pay the taxes, and donate the net proceeds.


STEWARDSHIP
We are still accepting pledges for 2015.  Pledge cards are available in the back of the church and in the office.  Thanks for your contributions.


PHOTOS: Do you take photos of the flowers, children or have other photos of events at Trinity. Please share them with us by emailing them to dhowe@trinitylittlerock.org. We will post some on the facebook page (Trinity Episcopal Cathedral) and use them in future newsletters and emails.

Send us your photos...we will post some of them here. Here are a couple photos from the Sunday, August 30 reception for ECEP and Paul & Ruthie. We will be posting more on facebook.

  
 
Check out our facebook page for additional photos and events.
PRAYER LISTS
To add someone to the prayer lists at Trinity please contact a member of the clergy. You may also email Dawn (dhowe@trinitylittlerock.org) or call the office at 372-0294. Names will be added for 1 month but can be added again if additional prayers are needed.  There are 2 lists, those for Sunday morning (critical and urgent) along with the daily list (which includes those requiring long term prayers).  Click here to access the Prayer list.  If your birthday or anniversary are not listed, please email Dawn with the information and we'll get it in the database.

BANNER NEWS

On Pentecost Sunday, we dedicated a set of 14 processional banners, a gift from Charliss Russ.  There is a brochure available on the back tables in the church that provides information on the meaning of the holy day/season the banner represents, as well as information on where in the church the inspiration for the banner designs can be found.

We are using our new banner for the Season after Pentecost.

The Season after Pentecost
The Season after Pentecost is spent studying the teachings and miracles of Jesus.  The Season lasts until the First Sunday of Advent.
To the Glory of God
And in Remembrance of
The Cathedral School
1957 - 2011 
Green is the liturgical color of living things and God's creation and refers to growth of the spirit of God within us.
 
The banner design:  The Jerusalem Cross, from Bishop Keller’s cope, is composed of a central cross made of four tau crosses representing the Old Testament law. [A tau cross is named after the Greek letter it resembles, and the shape of the letter tau or T was interpreted as representing a crucifix from antiquity.] The four smaller Greek crosses represent the fulfillment of the law in the gospel of Christ. Other interpretations represent the missionary work of the church - spreading the gospel to the four corners of the earth - while  others acknowledged the five crosses to represent the five wounds of Christ on the cross (hands, feet and side).
 
Traditional Collect:  Proper 28 (The Sunday closest to November 16)
Blessed Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them; that, by patience and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
From the Needle Point Guild of Trinity Cathedral: 
Dearest Needlepoint Stitchers,
 
Progress update - September marks 10 years of stitching!  WOW!  We really have been stitching for 10 years!
 
This would not be possible without this marvelous group of stitchers and your commitment to this project.  Thank you!
 
We have 9 Custom kneelers remaining to be sold and 16 South Transept kneelers remaining to be sold out of 450 kneelers.  Spread the word.
 
We currently have 41 kneelers being stitched - this leaves 75 kneelers to be stitched.   We need stitchers to finish this project!
 
Request:  Any of you that might have a frame that you are not using - is it possible that you could loan/donate your frame back to the project for a couple of our new stitchers?  Or maybe you would be interested in stitching one more kneeler?
 
Did you know:
We have stitched about 91,000 hours!
We have stitched about 19 million stitches!   Our hands, our arms, our shoulders and our eyes feel it.   But. . . we have made such a tremendous impact on the Cathedral, the beauty these kneelers add to the church, the families and friends these kneelers touch and our own personal souls.
 
Thank you for all your contributions and support to this project,
Blessings,
Rebecca Wilson  501-716-9927

CATHEDRAL PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY:Prayer Shawls and Prayer Quilts are handmade by members of our Cathedral Prayer Shawl Ministry. As they are being created, prayers for comfort, healing, and peace are woven into them. They then pass through the loving hands of others in our congregation where additional prayers are offered for the recipient before they are given to members of our parish family who are suffering from illness or grieving the loss of a loved one.

If you knit, crochet, quilt, or pray, please consider sharing your talents and joining this most rewarding ministry. Contact the Parish office (372-0294) for more info.

TRINITY ALTAR GUILD: The Trinity Cathedral Altar Guild serves an ancient and sacred function by preparing the Altar for Holy Communion at each service, to the worship and glory of God.  After each service, the Altar and credence tables are cleared, vessels and dishes are cleaned, and preparations are made to prepare the church for the next service. All interested men and women are welcome to join and become further acquainted with the accouterments of the sanctuary.  If you would like to join us or would like more information on the Altar Guild, please contact the Cathedral office or Janet Robb at Jrobb@arkansas.bbb.org or 501-920-2071.  COME JOIN US!!!

HELP NEEDED:  Feeding the Homeless needs help serving breakfast to the homeless at the Salvation Army (1111 W Markham - between Doe' s and the Train Station).  We need volunteers from 7:00 -7.30 a.m. on the 1st and/or 2nd Wed of each month.
