Worship is a very important part of the life at LCCR, and while our youth are welcome to participate in leading worship throughout the year, annually they plan and lead the worship service. The final Intergenerational Event of the 2015-16 Educational Program year will be an interactive event about Prayer, asking questions such as: What is prayer? We will also reinstate LCCR's Prayer Partners, finding an adult to pray for each of LCCRa€™s children.
Come help spiffy up the building and grounds for Joe Larsona€™s ordination at 2:00 and the dedication of the mosaic on Sunday as well as for the rest of Spring and Summer. Members of the above committees have previewed two books that they believe would spark a valuable discussion within the congregation. Wea€™ll discuss Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help ( and How to Reverse It) by Robert D.
We believe a discussion around these books would help us think about how we as a community choose to give and volunteer and even advocate. Please take a moment to thank her and wish her and her family well, and join us on the 22nd to celebrate her accomplishments. Our Middlers, a sixth and seventh grade combined Sunday school class, have been studying heroes of the Bible this year. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) provides two ways in which Holy Communion can be shared with homebound members of a congregation. The communion elements brought to the homebound person have been on the altar and consecrated along with the elements shared by those at worship that day.
The Community Care Committee is seeking LCCR members interested in serving as Home Communion Ministers. This year the Mission Support committee has been actively engaging the entire congregation in discerning where our ministry resources will be directed for the coming budget year. Though we wona€™t be able to tithe 10 percent of our budget to the synod this year, we will increase it from the previous year. One of the requests from folks during our meetings to develop our 5 year goals was some concise information on what exactly our different committees do and what level of commitment is required. Adult Education a€“ This committee meets occasionally, usually Sunday after worship, and coordinates with other committees, to provide educational opportunities for adults. Childrena€™s Education a€“ This committee meets nearly every month, usually in the evening, and coordinates with staff to provide educational opportunities for youth and children. Community Care a€“ This committee meets every other month late in the afternoon on Wednesdays. Mission Support a€“ This committee meets as needed on the first Thursday evening of the month. Youth a€“ All parents and youth meet occasionally with the youth minister to plan youth activities. The Prayer Chain a€“ This group participates by email or phone tree and prays for members, family and friends for support and nurture. Assisting Minister a€“ If you would like to be trained to be an assisting minister please talk to Pastor Albing. After the potluck at LCCR (see the announcement about the potluck on May 22), our family will go to Central Lutheran for the Luther Seminary Commencement ceremony, beginning at 3 pm. Summer Kick-Off bonfire: We are still working on a date, but we are working on an LCCR summer kick-off bonfire at Nataliea€™s parentsa€™ house in Bloomington. LCCR folks worked hard to make 66 West, apartments to be built across from Southdale to house homeless youth and give them the support they need to get jobs, finish their education and move on with their lives, a reality. Beacon is having this meeting where Beacon congregations gather collaboratively to ask public officials to stand with us to end homelessness by funding supportive housing at the county and state levels.
Wea€™re really hoping that with 66 West and Homeless Youth as a focus LCCR will have a significant presence (15, 25 or even 35) as wea€™ll be asked to stand up representing LCCR.
Come help spiffy up the building and grounds for Joe Larsona€™s ordination at 2:00A  and the dedication of the mosaic on Sunday as well as for the rest of Spring and Summer.
Dave showing off Zoea€™s balloon animals at the Talent show (bottom left) and our monthly senior high youth meeting spot, Butter Bakery Cafe at 38th and Nicollet Avenue (bottom right). Well, the mince pies are all gone, and I have been to the Boat Show at Excel (yawn), so it must be 2011. My Annual Post-Christmas Turkey Hunt went OK, although this year I could only find a frozen one. I was much helped in my culinary efforts by advice for cooking turkeys kindly sent to me by Phil Ball.
As a venue Excel beats the old Earla€™s Court in that the air conditioning is much better, so part-cured GRP odours do not get up your nose so much, but that is about all. I had two nautical as opposed to social purposes in going to Excel, and both were easily achieved without any queuing or waiting about. One was to visit a€?Hanse UKa€? (Inspiration Marine), say a€?Hia€? to the folk I dealt with when buying Selene last year, and take a look at the new Hanse 355, which model has replaced my 350. The other serious purpose was to visit Selden and talk about a small removable mini-bowsprit for Selene to make the chute set better and handling it even easier. Of course we all want to look out for the perfect piece of multi-purpose navigation and safety equipment. So what should this hypothetical ideal piece of navigational and safety electronics be able to do? So no wonder I was not particularly excited about trying to find new charts, plotters, or almanacs at Excel - I had it all in my pocket anyhow! The iPhone is not perfect for reading books or magazines and newspapers because of its screen size, although you can do both,, nor for playing Scrabble or Monopoly round the cabin table when weather-bound in port. But the point is that the iPhone, like its bigger cousin the iPad, is a really seriously useful piece of boat gear. My policy on Selene for cruising as opposed to day-sailing is that each crew-member is already expected to have at least a basic mobile phone as part of their personal safety gear. I shall be surprised in three years or so if most yotties do not carry a GPS equipped smart-phone. On Wednesday 19th January, we on Selene in company with Bonni Lady, LTSC Commodore Derek Eastera€™s last boat, were able to salute him coming down the Solent from Chichester in his new boat, Dawn Bird, which appropriately for her name, is equipped with red sails. At about the same time poor Silver Flame, a Westerly Konsort (identical to my last boat, Dawna€™s Early Light, see Other Stuff), literally hit trouble somewhat inshore from the Hamstead Ledge buoy.
Very bad luck, but it serves to remind us that the Solent is still littered with WWII debris in various places. I mentioned last time the great 2011 Cruising Programme Launch that Andie and Mike Smith are running at 1830 hours on February 4th.
I thought last months photo quiz - Portland Bill Light from the inshore passage, taken from my boat in August 2009 - would be too easy.
I have had a few offers of photos for the cruising archive, but there must be masses more out there.
Another route if you have some topical photos, sailing or social, is that LTSC now has a Facebook page established by the IT guys, and you could paste them up there.
The other serious purpose was to visit Selden and talk about a small removable mini-bowsprit for SeleneA  to make the chute set better and handling it even easier. At about the same time poor Silver Flame, a Westerly Konsort (identical to my last boat, Dawna€™s Early Light, see Other Stuff), literally hit trouble somewhat inshore from the Hamstead Ledge buoy.A  She stuck fast on something, much to the surprise of those on board. A Please pray for all of the kids who will be leading worship, and please plan to attend worship! Wea€™ll do the usual jobs: wash windows, put up screens, wash the pews, clean the kitchen, trim shrubs and dig weeds.
Joe graduated from Luther Seminary many years ago, but chose not to pursue ordination at that time. Mark's Lutheran in Fargo is the only RIC (Reconciling In Christ) congregation in North Dakota and first voted to become RIC over 25 years ago.
They are going to sell their home in Minneapolis and purchase a new house in Fargo or Moorhead.
Joe has created a number of hanging murals for our sanctuary and a new mosaic that will be displayed in the entry area of our church. It might also be helpful to many of us in determining our own individual giving, volunteering and even investing. May 22nd we will be thanking our pastoral intern, Michelle Lewis, and sending her, AJ, Kathryn and Zoe to their next adventure. We are grateful for her work with our children, her leadership with intergenerational learning, her presence in worship, her care of our homebound members, and the willing spirit and heart that she brought to all her work.


Wea€™ll be electing members of the Congregation Council, the Mission Endowment Fund, and delegates to next yeara€™s synod convention. Don Luther, pastor of LCCR from 1979-2001, introduced the practice of LCCR members bringing communion elements to homebound members directly from a worship service. The locations of a visit include the persona€™s home, a nursing home, hospice, hospital, or rehabilitation facility. Typically, the presiding minister gives the communion elements to the Home Communion Minister when the table is being cleared.
Please add your name to the sign-up sheet on the counter in the narthex if this ministry appeals to you and you would like to learn more about it. Carrying communion from a worship service to a member unable to physically be there is a powerful reminder of our oneness. We are invested, interested, involved, not only as we gather here but as we are sent into the world. During two meetings in January, members were apprised of financial challenges and identified what is most important to them. We will continue to give away the tithe to our 2007 building project and continue our membership in the Gathering. The executive committee has approved of Michelle Lewisa€™ offer to be an interim office manager.
They provide care to individuals where needed, and coordinate a variety of services for LCCR and for the community in coordination with other congregations. It seeks to relate our faith to matters of justice and peace, locally, nationally and globally, and so engages the congregation in projects and through education. Its responsibility is for nearly all things related to worship, including the services themselves, arts, and coordinating volunteers for Saturday and Sunday morning. Others are welcome to participate in supporting the youth, chaperoning events and praying for our youth. While the past few weeks have been a busy time for many of us with work, school, and other spring activities, they have been fairly quiet in terms of official youth events. Youth in grades 6-12 who are able are invited to A visit Sedrique and eat a meal at Nicollet Diner following the service.
To swap plants, they must be brought by 10:00 am to get tickets for discounts on new plants.
We went to meetings at Edina City Hall to show support, wrote letters, sent postcards to get the legislature to provide funding that could be used for the project and contributed $10,000 to it. Or to be exact I went to meet up with a friend, to drop in briefly on the Boat Show with her (mainly for lunch), and then in the evening to meet older son Ed for a meal and go on to stay with him and his lovely wife, Maria for three nights over that weekend. Ita€™s quick and easy enough to get to from Lymington, via South West Trains, Jubilee Line, and the Docklands Light Railway (although my friend, who lives much closer to London, was thinking about something else, and despite having been to Excel last year, had to text me to say she would be late - she was on autopilot and had gone to Earla€™s Court by mistake!) But once you get to Excel, the surroundings around it are a desert. The hull, deck, and rig, are identical apart from the shroud chainplates having been moved from the deck to the side of the hull.
My individual subscription to the RYA paid for itself via the membera€™s lounge where we had quite a good lunch. The various sailing comics like Yachting Monthly provide all the information about the available makes of baggy wrinkle, widgets, or electronics, you could ever need.
The point is I already had one of these marine wonder devices in my pocket - it is called my iPhone.
Right now it has 14 days worth, continuous without repeats, of my favourite music on it, ready to plug into Selenea€™s sound system. For that you need an iPad and its bigger screen, although that does fail the pocket-size test. It is a back-up for all my fixed gear on Selene except the echo sounder, and in most cases can do just the same job.
There are situations where a€?999 Coastguarda€? on your cell-phone could be easier to do than to remember the procedure for a VHF Mayday, particularly on a strange VHF set. My iPhone is certainly the best all-round piece of kit I have acquired in the last 2.5 or so years. Hamstead Ledge is, I believe, the remains of a barrier which stretched across to Sowley Boom, and the chart shows a narrow band from the IoW right across to Sowley marked as a€?Obstructions, No Fishing or Anchoringa€?.
According to QI on the box it takes 8 weeks for Spring to get from Landa€™s End to John Oa€?Groats, so no wonder there are so many Scots around down here.
Details of all these events are now on the LTSC Web site, but I will outline them here as well. I am afraid I shall not be there because that evening I should be at about 110 N 890 W underway from Barbados to the island of Curacao. Mike Kelly was the first to venture an answer in public on the Forum - he said it was a€?the Pointe de Raz opposite the Ar Men lighthouse in the Raz de Seinea€?. So lets now see what Peter himself looks like on an LTSC Meet when he has been trying for ages to work out which boat the party is on (in this case some years back on Mike and Annie Stevensa€™ Manike at Gunwharf Quay). This is mainly so those who are away can post short pieces so that family and friends can see where we have all got to and what is going on.
Piece of cake.A  Selden (whose stand like everyone elsea€™s was pretty much empty) make all the bits needed in a range of sizes, and were very helpful. The Sea Start Rib, which came to her aid, also thought when alongside that there should be enough water under Silver Flamea€™s keels. Hamstead Ledge is, I believe, the remains of a barrier which stretched across to Sowley Boom, and the chart shows a narrow band from the IoW right across to Sowley marked as a€?Obstructions, No Fishing or Anchoringa€?.A  So it can pay to be much more cautious than the depth-sounder might lead you to believe is necessary. Mike Kelly was the first to venture an answer in public on the Forum - he said it was a€?the Pointe de Raz opposite the Ar Men lighthouse in the Raz de Seinea€?.A  Peter Upcher soon put him right and gave the correct answer.
Alberta will tell stories from her involvement with the Roseville consortium of The Gatheringa€? representative of activities done with participants.
Wea€™ll have some equipment but it will help if you bring what you think youa€™ll use so therea€™s enough to go around. He began the certification process for ordination a couple years ago and is excited to finally be able to serve as a pastor. Charlie will probably stay a little longer in Minneapolis and will be looking for a job in a local school. Wea€™ll review the past year and tie up loose ends and then talk a bit about plans for the coming year.
We had read the story of Esther and how she helped her people and were conversing about ways large and small that we could help the people around us who are struggling. The second is a service provided by a member of the congregation, who is sent directly from a worship service with a portion of the bread and wine (or grape juice) distributed that day at worship.
This was a ministry of hospitality to those who were unable to attend worship, but wanted to maintain a connection with the community gathered at LCCR. Additionally, Michelle Lewis will complete her two-year commitment as LCCR intern in mid-May (a new intern will not be assigned to LCCR for at least a year) and Niveen Sarras, cultural liaison, is seeking a full-time call by November. Those who have served as Home Communion Ministers have been enriched by the experience in unexpected ways. LCCR actively engages us and equips us to be sent out into the world to love our neighbors. We will also continue to support our youth program and supplemental activities and camps for our kids. Though we can recall all that we have done together in the 21 months I have been with you as the Pastoral Intern, it is still surprising that nearly 2 years have passed since my family and I first joined you in ministry.
Despite that fact, our LCCR youth have still been extremely active in the life and work of our church.
Jostling through the heaving crowds, one went from stall to stall discovering new galvanised widgets which with ingenuity one could turn to some purpose quite different from that for which they had been designed, and so improve onea€™s little boat. That is simply because the cabin has been redesigned and it eliminates the substantial rods which on my boat take the shroud loads down through a locker to the bottom of the hull. And for reading in the cockpit in bright sunlight, why then you need a Kindle with its e-paper screen. And at least you do not have crew members wandering off at lunch-time to try and find a phone-box in Brixham, as happened in 2009! I have had someone comment that Selenea€™s chart-plotter being positioned by the wheel is not ideal because the crew cannot see where we are! Just log-in and search for Lymington Town Sailing Club (LTSC has been grabed by some other organisation).
I came back much refreshed with the winter blues chased away a bit.A  But I do not think the Excel Boat Show had much to do with that!


It was obviously a very local obstruction because she is twin-keeled yet was beginning to list as the tide fell. She will provide information about LCCRa€™s participation with The Gathering at Bethlehem Lutheran and the need for volunteers.
Later that afternoon of the 22nd she will head to Central Lutheran for her seminary graduation.
Wea€™ll approve dispersal of Capital Appeal benevolence based on Council recommendations (or amend them). Marka€™s in Fargo, there is more urgency in getting the final touches on, and our intention is to have it mounted on the entry wall before his ordination on May 14th. A In addition to talking about Esther, the students also learned about the lives of their contemporaries. This Home Communion Ministry was active until 2013, when interns serving the congregation began supplementing the regular pastoral visits of Pastor Albing by bringing communion to homebound members. Home Communion Ministers will be responsible for continuing the visits to the homebound that have been faithfully made by Michelle and Niveen.
This is a symbol for those gathered in the assembly of the oneness they share with the person being visited. The guidelines for making a visit to a homebound person, and the short liturgy used during the visit, will be discussed. Membersa€™ feedback indicates people are supportive of having an intern at LCCR and that this ministry is a gift to the wider church. Additionally, I will return to LCCR beginning on July 1 as an Interim Communications Coordinator. In late March, a group of LCCR youth and adults worked together to clean up after a free meal provided by Loaves and Fishes at St. And they tell me some sort of world sporting event is to be held down in Docklands next year? Things that onea€™s local chandler had never heard of, and certainly did not stock, and which otherwise could only be obtained from some place in deepest Essex. Oh, and the other change on-deck is that the Eberspacher exhaust outlet has been moved - which would have saved me two separate fenders when crew have slung them over the stern rail whilst the heater was running! Then it must be able to display our position automatically on up-to-date electronic charts, perhaps carrying charts for the whole of the English Channel all the time, but with any other area easily and cheaply available.
It also has the King James Bible, the Quoran, the Baghvad Gita, and a book on Buddhism (as a rationalist I like to be able to hold my end up if I get into religious arguments) plus the complete works of Shakespeare in fully searchable form.
No doubt the usual suspects will have been heard talking about what will happen when Scotland gets its Referendum and becomes independent. Mary and Adam Reay will look after the supper in my absence and Adam has devised a cunning after-supper entertainment which involves Mike Peyton cartoons. I have not used Facebook much, but there is a quite surprising and growing band of us LTSC wrinklies on there now. I had never thought about Twitter until the last Round the Island Race, when one could access on the race web site the a€?tweetsa€? from various boats as things proceeded, which made it all very alive. Unfortunately, whilst Sea Start pulled her off, the transom-hung rudder broke off below the lower of the two stainless supports. I have not used Facebook much, but there is a quite surprising and growing band of us LTSC wrinklies on there now.A  Pasting photos on Facebook is useful to the IT team who are always looking for good photos about the club for the club web site. The color of the day is red, so plan on wearing something colorful!A A light reception will follow the service. A As students discussed a potential project ,one student talked about an encounter he had with a woman working at a Target store. By receiving communion elements that had been at the worship service, the person being visited feels a sense of participation in the service. Please deposit your pledge in the box on the narthex counter or email it to Pastor Albing by May 1. I continue to thank God for LCCR, for the opportunity to join you in ministry, and look forward to the opportunity to continue working with you, though in a different role. Books written by gnarled mariners (or, at the least, Maurice Griffiths) about long voyages down muddy swatchways accompanied by roaring paraffin stoves.
Down below lockers etc have been changed, with more stowage for books etc, but overall somewhat darker and more joinery dominated than my boat.
But if you really need to do that side by side at a show, air fares are cheap, and going to a show in Dusseldorf in January is as feasible as traveling around Britain.
There are several other books I keep on it in case I get bored, and I can use it to buy others if I need. The Kindle, like the iPad, also downloads newspapers nicely whilst you are waiting for your train to leave, instead of scrumming in W H Smith, as I proved when coming home from London. There are several other books I keep on it in case I get bored, and I can use it to buy others if I need.A  It has my Calendar and all my Contacts and Phone numbers. And you can find your chums from the club, and get prompted to say Happy Birthday to them as the years go by, as several of us have just done to Adam Reay, who has just caught me up in years by having his big 70th. He reported how unfairly she was treated by a customer and he resolved to be especially nice to her as she waited on his family.a€?This led to a discussion of people in all kinds of service jobs and how hard their jobs are. He reported how unfairly she was treated by a customer and he resolved to be especially nice to her as she waited on his family.This led to a discussion of people in all kinds of service jobs and how hard their jobs are.
Cunningly implemented protractors said to make navigation in a rough sea a doddle and to be so much better than my trusted Captain Fielda€™s parallel rules (no, they werena€™t, and yes I still have my parallels.) A new discovery down every aisle in those days. The same device should also have access to the widest possible range of weather forecasts, and data, including synoptic charts. It can do so anywhere in the world where there is a 3G phone signal, and Amazon pays all the network charges. How can they be certain we English will not get there first and have an English Referendum on whether to continue the Union or not?
However, I came away with a couple of good ideas for handrails, and thus lee cloth fixings.
Why stint things whilst we are at it - why should it not also give us easy access to talk to the Coastguard in both ordinary and distress situations? And you can carry around up to about 1500 books in a single device weighing less than the average paper-back. No problem, all such data is safely synchronised automatically at all times with my back-up system up on the a€?MobileMe Clouda€?. Pastor Mary was meeting with the students and responded, a€?Ia€™m not sure about people working at check-outs.
Several senior high youth also participated in our monthly meeting at Butter Bakery Cafe on April 3rd, and discussed upcoming events and plans including our summer trip (more info to come). And Harbour Masters and Marinas likewise?A  And loads of other useful data, like it being able to find the restaurants nearest to whichever marina you are in, and then guide you to them? But I know that many custodians start at only nine or ten dollars an hour.a€? A Another student said, a€?Wow!
In addition our youth performed in the talent show on April 9th, played in the LCCR band during worship, met to plan the Youth Sunday service coming up on May 1st, and gave another fabulous presentation on the case for raising the minimum wage in Minnesota to a living wage.
I can type on it, and produce documents, and I can send or receive e-mails, or, of course, text messages.
This month has provided many opportunities for our young people to engage in our community in their own unique ways, and it was truly amazing to just sit back and watch them in action. A Soy 44 pct planted vs 61 ave.A Iowa and Illinois both 40 pct planted vs 83 and 53 pct ave. A Pastor Mary told them that this was an idea that many people in our community were discussing, and they responded that they wanted this to be their project somehow.
A As the project progressed, the students touched back on the question of, a€?Why are we doing this? All information is provided on an as-is basis.i»? This is a personal website and is not affiliated with any commercial grain entity.
