My Favorite Piece of Scripture

My favorite piece of scripture (1).png

This fall our clergy will take turns sharing their favorite passage from the Bible. “We’re asking each of the clergy to take a deep dive into a passage that has been meaningful and formative to them in their priestly career,” Dean Morris said. “We’ll look at the language, at different translations, at what the original Greek or Hebrew said, where we see similar passages in the Bible, and how this passage has affected each of us, how we’ve used it in our teaching or preaching or pastoral care or our prayer or how we live our lives.”

Choral Evensong

choral evensong.png

The Cathedral Chamber Choir will sing the “Mount St. Alban’s Service” by David Hogan, an American composer who was killed in July 1986 in the explosion of TWA Flight 800 from New York to Paris. The service was commissioned for the celebration of completion and consecration of Washington National Cathedral, where Hogan had been a chorister in the late 1970s.

Listen to the “Magnificat” here

At the time of his death at the age of 47, Hogan was tenor soloist at the American Cathedral in Paris and was working on film scores in French. Hogan was a co-founder of The Walden School, a summer school and festival in Dublin, NH, dedicated to the training of young musicians and composers. A statement mourning “the loss of a great musician and dear friend” said, “Mr. Hogan held the conviction that fostering creativity is the primary purpose of education, and that the most successful program for musical training is one through which students discover new materials and concepts for themselves and learn to think independently. Many of his former students have become professional composers and performers.”

The service includes the Responses of Gabriel Jackson and Halley’s anthem, “Bring us, O Lord God.” An organ prelude is at 4:45 pm. Dwight Thomas is organist and music director.

Adult Formation

The Cathedral is going to use revised, expansive-language Rite II liturgies on Sundays at 10:15 am, beginning on October 13 and continuing through November 24. Before we begin, on October 6 from 9:00-10:00 am in Harvard Hall, the Rev. Canon Dr. Thomas Williams will do a presentation on the revisions, explaining the concerns that prompted them and discussing the details of the changes. After we have experienced the liturgies for a few weeks, he will seek your feedback. Is the more expansive language a help? An obstacle? Do the revised liturgies change the way you experience God in worship? This discussion is meant to be part of the larger discussion of our liturgical life that General Convention 2018 encouraged, and as a Cathedral parish we have a particular responsibility to provide leadership in conversations like these.

St Peter's Book Club

SeptemberSPBC.png

The St. Peter’s Book Club will discuss science writer Robert M. Sapolsky’s A Primate’s Memoir at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 24, in the Chapter Room.

An exhilarating account of Sapolsky’s 21-year study of a troupe of rambunctious baboons in Kenya, A Primate’s Memoir interweaves serious scientific observations with wry commentary about the challenges and pleasures of living in the wilds of the Serengeti — for man and beast alike. Over two decades, Sapolsky survives culinary atrocities, gunpoint encounters, and a surreal kidnapping, while witnessing the encroachment of the tourist mentality on the farthest vestiges of unspoiled Africa.

Also at this meeting the group will choose the books for discussion in the months ahead. All welcome, whether you’ve read the book or not. The lively discussion may encourage you to do so! Roberta Poellein (rplln37@gmail.com) is happy to provide details.

Foyer Dinner Groups

SepFoyers.png

Consider Yourself Part of the Family: Join the Foyer Groups!

The foyer in a home is always a place of welcome.  Whether you are new to St. Peter’s or a longstanding member, one of the best ways to get to know others in our church is through Foyer groups. Each group consists of eight to 10 people who gather on an informal basis once a month to share a simple meal cooked by Chefs Jack, Marion and Richard. We meet on the third Thursday of the month, September through May, from 5:45 to 7 p.m. in Harvard Hall. Cost of the meal is $5.

We invite everyone who would like to participate in Foyer groups for the 2019-2020 year to fill in a form available on the activities table in Harvard Hall. We welcome singles and couples of all generations. You will be randomly grouped with others and will stay in your assigned group for the year. Couples are assigned to different groups. If you don't drive at night, we can arrange transportation by someone in your group.

The menu for each month's dinner is e-mailed to you in advance so you know what to expect. Or you are welcome to bring your own brown-bag dinner. Come join us as we form new relationships and reconnect with others. Our first meeting is September 19. Don't hesitate to contact Marion Fleming at mimideeda@gmail.com if you have questions.

Sung Compline

SungCompline.png

Beginning Sunday, September 8, we will offer a new service — the sung Office of Compline — on the second Sunday of the month. With a candlelit church and a quartet of our Cathedral staff singers, and in heartfelt prayer, we offer thanks to God in the stillness for the blessings of the day. The service lasts about half an hour. Its emphasis on rest, spiritual peace, and contemplation makes this an ideal service for the end of one busy week before the next one starts.
