PARISH NEWSAND NOTES
Summer 2013 will be filled with both celebration and change!On Sunday in July and August we will worship at 9:00 a.m. only; please notethis and mark your calendars. We hope to do sanctuary renovation this summer:repairing and replacing flooring, refinishing pews and kneelers, painting andotherwise restoring our worship space in ways that have not been done here for twenty-two years.Elsewhere in this issue you will read that
Stephen Black 
has resigned as our Minister of Music for personal reasons that necessitate him being near his familyin Kentucky. We will celebrate Stephen’s ministry and bid him “Faretheewell!” before he leaves in mid-August. I hope to have his successor in place bySunday, September 8, 2013.Frances & I and Don have sold the house in which we have lived for twenty-five years. My answer to “Where will you move?” is “Very close to church andvery friendly for Luke, our golden retriever.” We have several months to move,and I am hoping a change of residence this summer is in store. And, of course,we will be close enough that Don can continue to come home from studies atMarymount California University in Palos Verdes and job with The Port of LosAngeles in San Pedro!Summer is my favorite time of year. Not only for rest and recreation, baseball and the beach, but Summer is time for remembering significantanniversaries: June 30 (1985) is the anniversary of Frances’ and my wedding atSaint Mark’s Episcopal Church in Berkeley. July 4 is Frances’ birthday (youknow she is a “firecracker”, don’t you?). July 30 is my birthday; as BobSattler used to say, “I’m a 1946 model!” And, July 11 is the anniversary of myordination as a priest; yes, this is why “7/11” is important to me. On July 11,2013, I will celebrate forty years as a priest.In the Chapel of Grace at Grace Cathedral on Wednesday evening, July 11,1973, The Rev’d Dick York, Pastor of the Free Church of Berkeley for which Iwas Deacon preached a sermon titled “Heralds, Prophets and Servants” onIsaiah 61. He quoted this parable according to Bob Dylan:“Three kings decided that a man named ‘Frank’ was the key tounderstanding the latest Dylan record. They crawled into Frank’s room to seeif he could help them. Frank acknowledged that he was indeed the key to theunderstanding they sought. ‘Well then,‘ said a king in a bit of excitement,‘could you please open it up for us?” Frank, who had been reclining with hiseyes closed, suddenly opened them both up as wide as a tiger. ‘And just how

SUNDAYS AT 10AM: "THE GRABBAG” OR "THE HAT".
During thesummer months of July and August2012, we had lively discussions in theDavis Library following worship. Each person attending took turns grabbinga piece of paper which had a topicwritten on it such as "hospitality, faith,apathy, frustration, laughter or anger."The selector began the discussion andothers added to it. Do plan to attendwhen you are able. It is informal andfun, -- a good opportunity to add your “two cents’ worth” or just listen. Onenever knows what valuable insightswill be revealed.

far would you like to go in?’ he asked. And the three kingslooked at each other, ‘Not too far, but just far enough so’swe can say that we’ve been there,’ said the first king ”Then, my friend Richard challenged me: “Decide now,Peter, just how far you want to go in!”I, then, wanted to go “all in” as I still do now; yet itseems to me that I’ve just begun and have so far to grow.In “Notes Under the Fig Tree,” another Episcopal priest,The Rev’d Jim Lewis writes, “The Bible is a work of artabout the art of work.” To adapt his list of what that “work”is, Christian communities like ours are to: feed the hungryand confront root causes of hunger and poverty; visit thesick and address hazards that make people ill; welcomenewcomers to the church and welcome folks different fromourselves who are moving into the community; pray for governmental officials and work on issues that affect thehealth and welfare of the country; develop an active youthgroup and raise questions about how/why children are beingsubjected to violence and war; organize congregationalworship and address social, political, economic anddemocratic ramifications of organizing for employment.These responsibilities should give us much to ponder aswe live toward Labor Day. Each of us might well ask, “Ismy ministry fulfilling God’s mission?” “Does what I do bring happiness? ...joy? ...meaning?” “Am I doing whatGod is now calling me to do?”May our vacations be re-creative.
Yours, in Christ -

Guibord Center to offer lecture on'The Bible, Women and Violence'
The Guibord Center will present a lecture by Amy-Jill Levineon "The Bible, Women and Violence" at 1:30pm on Sunday,July 14, at the ProCathedral of St. John, 514 West AdamsBlvd., Los Angeles 90007.The talk is part of the Special Speakers Series sponsored by the Guibord Center, which is based at the cathedral andworks to increase understanding among the diverse faithsrepresented in the Los Angeles area.According to a release from the center, "The Bible has been viewed as a misogynist text that treats women as property, sanctions their abuse, promotes theisubordination, and proclaims the impossible standard of virgin mother. How has the Bible been used to preventwomen's flourishing, and how might a more historicallyinformed and theologically aware reading recover the Bibleas an inspirational resource for both women and men?"Levine is a professor of New Testament and Jewish Studiesat Vanderbilt University Divinity School and College of Artsand Sciences.
SANCTUARY REFURBISHINGUPDATE
I
n February, at our Annual Parish Meeting, we agreedthat the parish sanctuary needed to be refurbished andthat our goal was to accomplish this during the summer months.The bids for the work came in around $23,000. In theMay Love of Mike we noted that it might cost a little moreif we repair and refinish the South Wing flooring.To update you on where we stand on paying for the thework that needs to be done, we have a very generous offer of a matching gift of $10,000 to contribute to the project by June 30.2013. As of this date (June 21, 2013) Membersof Saint Michael’s have donated $11,830. This would cover  painting the sanctuary; repairing and refinishing the pewsand kneelers and repairing the slab and replacing the flooring.This will be the first time in 22 years that the sanctuaryhas been renovated.We were hoping that those who pledged this year wouldadd a one-time gift that would make this project possible.We thank you for your generous gifts and look forwardto begin the project in mid-August.--
 Murry McClaren & Lynn Headley
