Lavender outside the church office door

The summer season seems to have a way of kindling memories, those carefree
childhood days when school was out and each endless day was filled with adventure,
trips we have made to other countries, other states, and those times spent with family by
the shore, the lake or river. But, I wonder, do we remember these times through rose
colored spectacles? This certainly seems true for me.
Having spent the past couple of weeks on vacation, or in my case “staycation”, I have
found myself remembering, with some wistfulness, the hot summers we experienced
during our years in Maryland. The smell of the air, the heat of the sun and the all enveloping humidity that cloaked
me like a blanket, each time I stepped outside, in a perverse way I have been missing them. Perverse, because in
reality, I dislike hot weather, in fact I don’t care for it at all. What I should be remembering is trying to fix dinner in
an 80 plus degree kitchen, doing laundry, grocery shopping, and all the needed household chores, when all I really
wanted to do was to sit in the shade, with a good book and a glass of iced tea.
Our young children spent most of June and July swimming at the pool, at day camp, or Vacation Bible School,
but by the time August rolled around, the novelty of these had long since worn off and the weather was difficult at
best, very hot, very humid, with thunder storms always imminent. The call of the cool, dark movie theaters with
their low priced matinee was strong, ah yes, the “dog days” of summer. A friend used to say that these days were
named this, because it was so hot, that all dogs could do was to lie around panting, but the phrase has nothing to do
with dogs, or the lazy days of summer. The “dog days” refer to the dog star, Sirius, and its position in the heavens.
To the Greeks and Romans, the “dog days” occurred when in late July; Sirius appeared to rise just before the sun,
the hottest time of the year, a time that could bring fever, or other catastrophe.
Did you know that “Dog Daies” are mentioned in the lectionaries of the early editions of The Book of Common
Prayer? Wikipedia gives us the following information:
“According to the 1552 edition of the The Book of Common Prayer, the "Dog Daies" begin July 6th and
end August 17th. But this edition, the 2nd book of Edward VI, was never used extensively nor adopted by
the Convocation of the Church of England. The lectionary of 1559 edition of the Book of Common Prayer
indicates: "Naonae. Dog days begin" with the readings for July 7th and end August 18th. But this is noted
as a misprint and the readings for September 5th indicate: "Naonae. Dog days end". This corresponds very
closely to the lectionary of the 1611 edition of the King James Bible (also called the Authorized Version of
the Bible) which indicates the Dog Days beginning on July 6th and ending on September 5th. A recent
reprint of the 1662 edition of the Book of Common Prayer contains no reference to the Dog Days.”
There is an online version of the 1552 BCP where, if you go to, “THE TABLE AND KALENDAR
EXPRESSYNGE THE ORDRE OF THE PSALMES AND LESSONS” in July and August you will see clearly
marked “Dog Daies”.
Here on the North Coast while we may still have the “dog days” of summer, we do not experience the sultry heat
of the eastern and southern states, or of California’s inland mountains and valleys, and for me this is truly a
blessing. Cool misty mornings followed by bright sunny afternoons, warm enough to sit outside without having to

escape indoors to the comfort of air conditioning, throw in a view of the bay or ocean, and we are blessed indeed.
Despite this, August can bring with it a kind of lethargy, summer pastimes are beginning to pale, school looms
on the horizon and many of us find ourselves looking forward to the normal routines September will bring. But, I
remind you, as I remind myself, to enjoy these summer days while we can, because once Labor Day is passed, life
will resume its usual cycle and there will be plenty to fill our days. So, remember summers past, take time to enjoy
the beauty of God’s creation, relax with that glass of iced tea or your favorite beverage, and give thanks for family,
friends and the “dog days” of summer.
See you all soon,


The greeting letter at the beginning of Christ Church’s Parish Profile says;
“We are both searching with discerning hearts. You are looking for a parish
and we are looking for a rector. Hopefully and prayerfully, we will meet on the
same path and agree to move forward together.”
While our first effort in our search for a rector was not successful, it was
done with the discerning hearts of the Applicant Review Committee, the
Vestry and the candidates that did consider becoming the rector for our parish.
The Parish Profile has been posted. When the Applicant Review Committee
(ARC) receives the names and applications of new candidates, we will again
begin the process. The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California’s Calling
Process Booklet provides helpful information that all of the congregation should consider as the ARC and Vestry
again move ahead.
“The process takes time, normally not less than a year, and sometimes several months beyond. It is essential that
the process be accomplished in a careful manner, and that the congregation not rush to fill the void created by the
departure of a priest. It is vital to keep in mind that this is not primarily a hiring process, but a process of
discerning what God is saying to us.”
Over the past year, hundreds of hours have gone into the calling process by the Profile Committee, ARC and
Vestry. To give you an idea of the work involved after months of development of the Parish Profile, its approval,
and posting, ARC met with the Transition Minister, Canon Andrea McMillin, to start their work developing
questions for telephone screening interviews, skype interviews, reference checking and/or field interviews. Canon
Andrea then presented candidate application packets to ARC.
For initial screening interviews ARC screened applications and completed telephone interviews, completed
reference checks on each semi-finalist, visited semi-finalists in groups of three, conducted formal interviews and
sent names of finalists to the Bishop. The Office of Bishop began background checks on finalists.
While ARC was conducting formal interviews with applicants, the Vestry began to prepare for onsite interviews
with the finalists. After receiving the approved list of finalists from ARC (a total of three), the finalists (and
spouses if available) were invited by the Senior Warden on behalf of the Vestry for on-site visitations that included
tours of the area and the church campus, lunches, social dinners at various Vestry and ARC members’ homes, a
celebration of Holy Eucharist with the Vestry, discussion of compensation and benefits with the Senior Warden
and Treasurer and a formal interview. The Vestry then met with Bishop Beisner for the final discernment meeting.
After so much work by all involved, you can imagine our disappointment that our search was not successful.
Planning for Christ Church’s calling process started soon after Mother Susan Armstrong became our priest-in-
charge. The vestry at that time voted to include in the monthly budget money to cover costs for the search and
moving costs when a new rector is called. The financial report is posted each month after approval by the vestry,
and is available on the vestry section of the bulletin board in Lewis Hall. You can find the information in the
report under “Transition Cost” section.
Due to it being the summer months when people are busy with family and vacation activities the job
announcement will continue to be posted for several more weeks. Canon Andrea will continue to keep ARC chair

Belinda Zander and I updated regarding new applicants and when work will begin again. The ARC includes Lynne
Bean, Harry Freeman, Peg Gardner, Byrd Lochtie, Catherine Mace, Jackie Moore, Marita Musante, John Patton
and Belinda Zander, Chairperson. The vestry includes Julie Cairns, Lin Chase, Heidi Erickson (Junior Warden),
Irene Hannaford, Elizabeth Harper-Lawson, Bob Hines, Lyn Klay (Senior Warden) Jackie Moore, Helen Taylor,
Rex White and Belinda Zander. Susan Whaley is the Chaplain for both ARC and the Vestry.
All of the people involved in this process are available to keep you updated with as much information as we are
able to provide. But we have been entrusted with a great responsibility and we have all entered into a covenant
that includes confidentiality. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove to be faithful (1
Corinthians 4:2). This means that the names of potential candidates and team discussions will be kept confidential.
We will give the congregation progress reports, but specific discussions and decisions of the team will stay with the
I ask for your prayers and support as we continue on our journey.

Comforters for Foster children laid out for blessing in the nave

Hello from Ohio. If you love hot and extremely humid weather, you would love an
Ohio summer with our nearly daily heat advisories. However, it will eventually be
followed by a stunning mid-western autumn, which I await eagerly and wish I could
share with you in person. Meanwhile, I am adding to the many, many reasons why I
miss Humboldt County – the weather. But that’s minor. Most of those reasons – the
most important – are you.
As I unpack and try to organize a small bedroom and a small office, I keep coming
across items that catch my heart – gifts of love, notes, cards, reminders (as though I
needed them) of the years we shared at Christ Church. Thank you again for such an
outpouring of love and generosity which provide so much joy whenever I look at them.
Motka is settling in and doing her best to let everyone know that she is Queen of the second floor. She has
found several places to lounge regally, awaiting her subjects who will stroke and suitably praise her beauty. She has
also started playing again, often asking for a rousing game of Chase the Cat or Mouse-toy Hunt. It was a tough
transition for her, but she is bouncing back. The challenging part comes from sharing the second floor with The
Senior Cat. Muffy, a 19 year old, totally deaf but still tough lady from the Dominican Republic, does not
appreciate having to share HER floor with an interloper nearly twice her size. It’s humorous to watch Motka
backing away (growling, of course) when Muffy comes screaming and hissing at her. My interpretation is that
Motka is being courteous to the old lady and letting Muffy think she’s still in charge. We await the day when we
find them curled up together taking a mutual cat nap.
It’s taking Motka and me a while to adjust to the change in our lives, and the rest of the Community here,
including the other fur-friends, time to adjust to us. We are all doing it with love and the exercise of patience.
(Except Muffy and Motka). Change is so hard, but we live in a universe created to evolve and change, to let go
and make space for new expressions of love and grace. We know that the Seven Last Words of the Church are
“But we’ve always done it that way.” Or, if you prefer, “We’ve never done it that way before.” When we trap
ourselves in those last words, we are trying to close out the Holy Spirit who always has more to show us about
living in Christ’s love. As always, I am preaching to myself, as I return to a Community that is not the same as
when I left and find myself wondering what happened May God be with us all as we enter joyfully and hopefully
into the way things are, the changes that are happening and seek the grace and ministry that grow from each new
and different day and person.
I miss you my friends, but rejoice in the changes we are all receiving because God is with us in them.

Much, much love,
Sr. Diana

I hope that this article finds you all having a happy, healthy summer thus far.
As promised in my last article, here are some before and after photos of the beautiful-
ly refreshed bathrooms in the education building.
I would like to thank everyone who helped to make this project a success: Dan and
Merry Phillips, Lynne Beane, Gary from Maples Plumbing and Grant and David from
Trinidad Electric. As you can see, the bathrooms are just beautiful. New items include:
one new toilet in the ladies room, the other one was repaired and a repaired urinal for
the men's room. New faucets, automatic hand dryers, fans and lighting.
Lynne was instrumental in getting the bathrooms painted. Dan and Merry repaired and replaced some beams
that were rotting out in the walls which needed to be done prior to painting. I am eternally thankful for everyone’s
Our next project is the fencing that will be going around parts of the church campus. This has become an un-
fortunate necessity to ensure our safety and protection of our beautiful grounds. I am told that the fencing will be
a lovely safety addition to our church grounds. More information on the fencing will be forthcoming in future
I also want to thank Irene Hannaford and Beth Powell for their ongoing care of our landscaping needs. They
work so hard pulling weeds and keeping the church's garden healthy. I have been told that their work is not ex-
clusive to them. So if anyone has spare time or energy, the ladies would welcome your company.
And last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to Paul Gossard. Paul emailed me one day asking if it was al-
right if he painted the tired, worn out choir door. Of course, I said, "yes." I went by the next Sunday and it was
done. He did a fantastic job.
Like Paul, if you see something that you feel you can help improve or repair around the church and you have
the skills (or the funds) to complete them, please let me know before you start.
Once again, a big thank you to all who encourage me with your kind words and actions. This is a big job being
the Junior Warden, but with your help, good thoughts and prayers, I find the strength to continue to improve
God's house.
Enjoy the rest of your summer my friends.
Until next time,
Heidi Erickson

Christ Church’s Scholarship Fund is now known as THE HELEN PERSON SCHOLARSHIP FUND. Helen
was a long time member of Christ Church and a long time educator in Humboldt County. She bequeathed
$3,000.00 to Christ Church. The current vestry felt the best way to recognize this gift and to honor Helen was to
add the money to the scholarship account.
In the past few years we have been able to present awards to eighteen outstanding young men and women from
Arcata, Eureka, Fortuna, and McKinleyville high schools. These former recipients are now in colleges and
universities in California, Massachusetts, New York, and Oregon.
Right now, we are asking for your help to once again get started in this worthwhile project. If you are interested
in joining the committee please speak to Julie Cairns or Helen Taylor. The committee should consist of four or
five persons. Meetings will be short and direct.
We will be designing a new application, and searching for ways to increase our funds. We already have several
suggestions: art sale, auction, dinner, luncheon, wine tasting, and a tea. Also, several Christ Church members have
inquired about the possibility of donations. Of course, donations are always welcome.
Our eventual goal is to increase our funds so that once a year we could grant several awards to high school
seniors, using only money from accumulated interest. We continue to be excited at the prospects of helping
young people as part of our community awareness and continued support of Christ Church’s life affirming

Shoppers Alert! Watch for Back-to-School Sales!
Do you remember getting some new things before going back to school in the fall? Well, we have a lot of
kindergarten boys and girls through high school teens in foster care who would really feel good about having
brand-new underwear for the beginning of this school year. Watch for those sales and bring your contributions to
the container in the Heritage Room. Mother Lesley will be blessing them in early August so they can be delivered
to the Foster Family Resource Center. Thanks for caring for our children and youth! (The need for school
supplies is being filled by the Humboldt County Office of Education.)

The Great American Eclipse.
On August 13, Helen Taylor will present a program on total solar eclipses in Lewis Hall during the regularly
scheduled 9:15 Forum time –between the 8 and 10:30 services. August 21 is The Great American Eclipse.
Although we will only see a partial eclipse here, our neighbors in parts of Oregon will be observers of a total one.
Most people consider a total solar eclipse as the most dramatic natural event ever encountered. There will be some
pictures from previous total eclipses from Oaxaca, Mexico and the Atacama Desert in Chile.

Betty Chinn’s St Joseph Hospital Food Ministry
How You Can Help
Nearly three years ago I received an invitation from Mother Nancy to help with her new ministry of picking up
leftover food from the St Joseph Hospital cafeteria for Betty Chinn. Since then picking up food for Betty has be-
come a part of my weekly routine; it is what I do on Thursday night. The evening begins by picking up plastic
containers from Betty’s actual residence which is located near the hospital. Most of us who are involved with this
ministry have a partner we meet at the hospital sometime before 7:30 p.m. We are given access to the hospital
kitchen and the leftover food is brought to us by the cafeteria employees. It is never the same; soup, pasta dishes,
chicken, taco fixings, salads. Every evening has its challenges in packaging the food as efficiently as possible with
the containers that are available. Once we have completed collecting food it is then taken to the Betty Chinn Cen-
ter. It is a bit of a drive, but there is never any traffic. From start to finish it takes less than an hour.
Betty takes this food that is dropped off, repurposes it and then distributes it to people in her programs. About
37 residences receive food that fall in the category of people that are low income but do not qualify for CalFresh.
Many of these people are ill or housebound and it is the one way they can get a good meal. The remainder of the
meals go to residents of Betty’s House (next door to the Center). While it may seem to those of us collecting the
food that it is late when we get home after 8:00 p.m., Betty doesn’t finish her night of food prep and delivery until
after 11:00 p.m.!
I am not an expert on the Homeless crisis, but it is something I see every day in one way or another. How to
help, when to help and even the reality that anything any of as individuals might try to do would be pointless. This
fact makes the scope of what Betty Chinn has accomplished in helping those that have fallen into a “homeless”
situation (or keeping them out of that category) even more amazing. Making a difference often seems impossible,
but it comes down to small steps. Betty is making a difference in helping people who need help and want to
change their situation. Something as simple as collecting food that would otherwise be thrown away is one way to
make a difference.
Volunteers to this ministry are always welcome, whether you are interested in a regular weekly commitment or
on a fill-in basis. It is one way that you can help make a difference. Please contact Mother Nancy if you would
like to help.

Meeting our Neighbors

I’d like to invite you to join me in meeting our church neighbors. We plan to go out in pairs after meeting a few
times to create a handout and topics of conversation for our initial outing. We will learn as we go, following the
path that bears fruit. Our church neighbors can join us in learning about how to prepare for a disaster whether at
home or away and learn first hand how to work a fire extinguisher. We will learn what is important to our
neighbors, whether it be security, meeting others, neighborhood news, or opportunities for health education,
establishing walking partners or having a neighborhood prayer circle. We won’t know our church neighbor’s
concerns and hopes until we ask. Won’t you join us?

Save the date! Sunday, August 27, 4:00 p.m. – “Sundays at 4” presents “The King
of Instruments: History, Science, and Music.” Have you ever wondered “just how
does that instrument work” or maybe you’ve wondered what the “insides” of the
Kegg organ look like? This will be your chance to learn a little about the history
and science of the pipe organ, and how the Kegg organ (with the help of the
organist) produces the music you hear!

A quilt to be blessed, on the rail in the nave

A few weeks ago, Mtr. Lesley spoke in her sermon about doors and the many things
they represent in our lives. She mentioned that the choir room has a newly painted red
door (thank you Paul Gossard!). I’ve always been curious what the significance is of a
red door, since many churches have them. When the editor of the Episcopallife
Archive asked its readers “Why is the church door red?” responses received included: a
red door indicated the mortgage was paid ; the door is red until the mortgage is paid
off; the red door indicates the presence of the Holy Spirit; in the early days of the
church, a red door signified a place of safety and refuge or “sanctuary”; no one could
be harmed or captured inside a church. However the tradition of the red door began, I
like to think that the red doors on our church welcome all into a space filled with the
Holy Spirit proclaiming that the church is “a haven for emotional and spiritual healing,
and a place of refuge and safety, forgiveness and reconciliation.”
The red door pictured above has welcomed many into a space filled with the Holy
Spirit. Choir rehearsals, Music and Arts Camp, Foster Family Fridays, wedding
preparations, instrumental rehearsals … these are just a few examples of how this wonderful space has been and
will continue to be used over time. I like to think of each wall as a palimpset, “a manuscript on which the original
writing has been effaced to make room for later writing, but of which traces remain.” As they say, “if these walls
could talk!” Indeed, music performance is somewhat like this; over the years the same anthem, sung by different
choirs, may sound different, but will always retain traces of its original form.
I offer my thanks and gratitude to the Vestry for including funds for continuing education in this year’s music
budget. This summer, I embarked on my first online course. The course, “Creative Practices: Choral Rehearsal
Technique (Philosophy, Method and Rehearsal Techniques)” is taught by James Jordan, conductor and professor
at Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, N.J. Ever since hearing recordings of Jordan
conducting the Westminster Williamson Singers (my favorite is “Hole in the Sky”), and reading about his
philosophies, I have wanted to learn more about his methods. The course has been challenging, stimulating,
intimidating at times, but on the whole, very rewarding. And I feel (and hope) that what I am learning will be
useful to the choir as we begin a new season this fall. Jordan’s goal for every rehearsal is what he calls “deep long-
term music learning,” that is to say, the goal is not just a performance, but “to create music that is beautiful,
meaningful, and deeply human.” This is what nurtures us and stays with us, long after we have sung the anthem
on a particular Sunday.
The Christ Church choir will return to the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service on September 10. Won’t it be glorious to
have them back?! New members are always welcome to the choir; please contact the choir director (Merry
Phillips) if you would like to know more and are interested in joining. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings
from 5:30-7:00 p.m., and on Sunday mornings at 9:30. The choir sings a variety of anthems and hymns; singing
every week at the 10:30 a.m. services, and for special services throughout the year, including Christmas and Easter.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. (Psalm 100:2)
