S
eptember begins with Labor Day weekend, the symbolic end of summer.Please pray the never more appropriate than now Collect “For Labor Day”on page 261 of our “Book of Common Prayer” by a friend from long ago, TheRev’d Dr. Charles Mortimer Guilbert, once rector of Saint Clement’s Parish inBerkeley and Custodian of the Standard Book of Common Prayer, 1979:Almighty God, you have so linked our lives with one anotherthat all we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives: So guideus in the work we do, that we may do it not for self alone, butfor the common good; and, as we seek a proper return forour own labor, make us mindful of the rightful aspirations of other workers, and arouse our concern for those who are outof work; through Jesus Christ our Lord,who lives and reignswith you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.Amen.Our September ends with our patronal festival, Saint Michael & All Angels’ Day,actually September 29, but always observed here on the last Sunday of September,the 25th in 2011. Please pray the Collect for this Festival, revised from ThomasCranmer’s 1549 translations, on page 244 of our Book of Common Prayer:Everlasting God, you have ordained and constituted in awonderful order the ministries of angels and mortals:Mercifully grant that, as your holy angels always serve andworship you in heaven, so by your appointment they mayhelp and defend us here on earth; through Jesus Christ ourLord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, oneGod, for ever and ever. Amen.Our faith in “one God”, as both Collects witness, will be highlighted hereparticularly in mid-September.On September 4, we will return to Sunday morning worship at eight and teno’clock and I will ask in my homily: “What do you remember about September11, 2001?” “How have you changed in these last ten years?” to help us preparefor the following weekend:
 By Elizabeth Henry
“Life changing.” “Eye opening.” “Spiritrenewing.” “Team building.” “Like anepisode of the Amazing Race.” All wereterms used at various times by the 31Saint Michael & All Angels’ pilgrims ontheir trip to the Holy Land in July 2011.After a 14-hour flight to Tel Aviv, thegroup met guide Canon Iyad Qumri andexpert lecturer The Rev’d Canon JohnL. Peterson (who is also Don HaynesGodfather). Qumri and Petersonescorted us to the Jordan River, wherewe left them and met our Jordanianguide and driver.Just four hours later—through a desertlit by little more than Bedouin fires –wearrived to dinner, cake (happy birthdayFrances Haynes), sparklers (for theFourth of July) and beds at the PetraPanorama Hotel.Early the next morning we walked,rode (carriages), and trotted (horses andcamels) through the rose red city of Petra. After clocking 6 miles through theruins, we finished the Petra 10km, andheaded for Amman the capitol of Jordan.The next day, we toured the astonishingMadaba map. A Byzantine mosaic usedby pilgrims as a guide to the holy land.John Peterson had advised us to playclose attention as this 6
th
century mapheld a key to discoveries at the Churchof the Holy Sepulcher. At Mt. Nebo, welooked, as Moses did, across the banksof the Jordan and into the land he wouldnever enter. We, however, crossed theJordan a few hours later where we metIyad and John again, and began ourPilgrimage in earnest.

Yours, in Christ -
On Saturday evening, September 10, 7:00 p.m. at LosAngeles’ City Hall’s Spring Street steps, please join me andother Christians with Jewish and Muslim brothers and sistersof faith in one God at “One Light” to honor the tenthanniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks and to increase theharmony among diverse faith groups. Our Bishop Diocesan,+Jon Bruno, has written,“At least 500 houses of worship -- mosques,temples, churches and other assemblies --will be represented there and receivecommemorative lanterns to bring back forlocal services the following day and week.I encourage as many as possible to attendthis important gathering, and I ask thatEpiscopalians who live farthest from centralLos Angeles view One Light as a form of pilgrimage, coming in to join the regionalcommunity in important solidarity.“When you bring the lantern back to yourcongregation for services on Sunday,September 11, please consider relighting thecandle and placing the globe on or near thealtar as a symbol of the common prayer andcommon cause that unites us.”Please join me in One Light on September 10.On Sunday morning, September 11, at both 8:00 and 10:00 a.m.worship services, our speaker will be
Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi.
InSeptember 2001 he went with President George W. Bush to“Ground Zero” and was invited by President Bush to lead a MuslimPrayer at the Interfaith Prayer Service at our Washington NationalCathedral. Recognized by the Orange County Register as one of the 100 most influential people shaping Orange County 1980-2005, and recipient of the Humanitarian of the Year Award in 1999from the National Council of Christians and Jews, Dr. Siddiqi isPresident of the Academy of Judaic, Christian and Islamic Studiesin California and an Imam at the Islamic Society of Orange Countyand the religious leader of thousands of Southern CaliforniaMuslims.For me, Dr. Siddiqi incarnates the “salaam” Islam teaches, in thesame ways Jewish beloveds try to represent the “shalom” of theirheritage and I struggle to follow Christ, the Prince of Peace. He isa soft-spoken, gentle man, one of the “peacemakers” Jesuspromised is so “blessed” (Matthew 5:9) as to “be called childrenof God.”Please join us for Sunday morning (8:00 and 10:00 o’clock) worship.It will be special in September 2011.
