Unexpected Response
As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting
on the right side; and they were alarmed.
But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth,
who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here.
Look, there is the place they laid him.
But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee;
there you will see him, just as he told you.”
So they went out and fled from the tomb, for terror and amazement had seized
them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
Mark 16:5-8

These four verses are the first account of Easter. These are
the last four verses of the original version of the Gospel of Mark. The
young man tells the women that Jesus has been raised from the
dead. He tells them they will see Jesus again in Galilee. He
commands them to tell the rest of the disciples, to spread the good
news; Christ is risen from the grave!
Their response is quite unexpected. They say nothing to
anyone, “for they were afraid”. After three days of fear, grief and
stress they are unable to respond the way we might expect.
You and I are going through a similar time. The fear, the grief
and the stress have been less concentrated, but the past thirteen
months have included many days with abnormal amounts of fear and
sadness. If you are like me, you have tried to put the worst of these
memories behind you. No matter, all of us are still carrying some of
the weight of the fear and grief we have experienced.
You might not notice the accumulated exhaustion and
sadness you may be carrying. You may not notice until you get to a
place that is more like Easter morning. When you get to the place
when you can hug your friends or your relatives again, you might
notice an unexpected response. When you get to the place when you
see the end of all the extra precautions, you might notice an
unexpected response.
5 The Basics

When you have received your vaccines and life is returning to


normal, you may find you actually feel more sadness. You may find you feel
more exhausted. There is a very good reason for this unexpected response
for those who have been through a time of fear and grief.
Two months ago, six months ago, and ten months ago you were
giving great amounts of energy to the work of surviving the worst global
pandemic in 100 years. You could not afford to feel the sadness or the
exhaustion. This might sound strange, but no matter how safe or supportive
your home is, it was not safe for you to feel all of those negative feelings last
Spring or last Winter. That’s why so many of us watched more movies than
ever before or completed more projects in our homes than ever before. We
needed to be distracted from the bad feelings in order to make it to the next
day.
From a clinical perspective, the time you and I will likely feel more of
the sadness or exhaustion will come when we finally feel safe again. So, I
urge you to be patient with yourself. You might want to avoid the negative
feelings by keeping yourself busier than usual. Try to resist the path of
distraction; it is not healthy for those who have gone through great stress to
keep that stress inside their hearts and minds. I urge you to try to make
space for these feelings to come to the surface. I do this by playing music or
listening to music. You might do it by writing or talking to a friend or a
therapist. No matter how you do it, I urge you to create some extra space for
some unexpected responses as life returns to normal.
For those of us who hold onto Mark’s story as sacred scripture, our
occasional unexpected responses as life returns to normal are part of a story
that is much bigger than our lives. It is the story of people who have been
created in the image of a loving, creative God. It is the story of people who
are seeking to do two difficult things at the same time: to survive and to love.
It is the story of God who journeys beside us and cares for us every step of
the journey. It is the story of God who knows and understands the
exhaustion you feel, the grief you feel, and your unexpected response as life
returns to normal.

Town Hall Meeting: April 11th at 4:00 p.m.
—by Fr. Philip

The people of St. Paul’s have shown remarkable resilience and


tenacity during the past year. In spite of daunting technical challenges and
health precautions, our members have continued to participate in worship,
fellowship, Bible Study and other Christian formation programs. More than
50 members attended our Annual Meeting in January, held completely
online! Our Open Doors committee and vestry continued working out the
details of our building project through the summer, fall and winter, with
barely any interruption to their forward momentum.
With gratitude for your persistence and faithfulness to St. Paul’s, I
humbly invite you to join me for our Capital Campaign Town Hall event at 4
p.m. on April 11th. I humbly invite you to join me for this event, because
your participation at St. Paul’s during the past year far exceeds
expectations! With that in mind, I urge you to join me for our Town Hall
meeting because this is our first and only big parish event as we
commence our capital campaign. This is your time
to ask your questions and learn final details about
the Open Doors project.
In normal times we would be marking this
moment with a gala reception in the Hansen Dining
Room, with presentations from our capital campaign
leaders, and time for fellowship. Since we are
embarking on this effort during a global pandemic,
our Capital Campaign Town Hall will be held virtually, with members
joining via Zoom or the livestream. Our Capital Campaign Town Hall will
include three portions:
1. An overview of the Open Doors project. This includes a few
additional details added to the project since our July 2020
description.
2. An introduction to the process of the capital campaign, presented
by Partners for Sacred Places, our consultants.
7 The Basics

3. Responses to any questions or concerns you may have about the


project or campaign.
Here are some important details:
• The Open Doors steering
committee needs to know
your questions and concerns
about the Open Doors
project. Please send your
ideas to Dick Pilgrim, Jr.
Warden, no later than Friday,
April 9th. See p. 11 for more information.
• If possible, join the meeting on April 11 via Zoom using the link at
stpaulsyr.org.
• You can also join the meeting by navigating to St. Paul’s You Tube
channel using your smart TV.
• Our hope is that all our members will participate, regardless of
whether they have access to Zoom or a smart TV or the internet. If
you don’t have access to the meeting in your home, please contact
DJ Igelsrud, Sr. Warden, to participate in the meeting in a small
group setting. See pages 10 for more information.

Open Doors Update


—by Cathy Wolff
The various Open Doors task forces
are beginning their work in earnest now,
starting with the Case Statement Task Force
and the Communications Task Force.
The Case Statement Task Force is
responsible for creating a formal case statement that can appeal to both St.
Paul’s membership and the greater community of Syracuse. The case
statement is the “business card” of a capital campaign, succinctly
presenting a compelling case for support. Matthew Fledderjohann,
Catherine Gerard, and Ieva Doyle will be working with chair Cathy Wolff to
craft our case statement.
The Communications Task Force is responsible for creating
campaign materials, developing a social media strategy, and creating a
brief campaign video that tells our story. The task force has identified two
professional videographers for consideration in producing our video.
Working with chair Betsy Elkins are DJ Igelsrud, Jessica King, David
Morgan, Doug Mouncey, Roy Thomas, and Father Philip. The case
statement and video will be critical to the success of our campaign.

Save the Date


Sunday, April 11th at 4:00pm, Parish Town Hall Meeting
Partners for Sacred Places will host a Parish Town Hall Meeting to
help inform every one of the project and the capital campaign. You can
read more specifics about this meeting on pages 6-7.

If you have any questions about the project and the capital
campaign, don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Steering Committee:
Becky Livengood, Father Philip, Cathy Wolff, Betsy Elkins, David Ridings,
Walley Francis, Doug Mouncey, Tom Cantwell, Michael Mach, or Marion

New Passwords for Zoom Meetings
—by Fr. Philip

Thanks to video conferencing (Zoom), some of


our groups have continued to meet for the past year
with minimal changes to their normal procedures. Last
summer we added a second Zoom channel.
Gradually, we have come to refer these two Zoom
channels as the ‘Fayette Room’ and the ‘Montgomery Room’. This is easy
to remember, but it also makes our current password system less
protective against intruders.

Beginning Monday, April 5th passwords for our Zoom meetings will
be changed. John1334 will be the password for meetings held in the
Fayette Room, including Coffee Hour and most other open meetings. If
you read John 13:34 you will see why I picked this as our main password.
We will be using the Montgomery Zoom channel for meetings that are not
open to a wider audience and
for some other small group
meetings (such as when the
Fayette Room is being used by
another group). For meetings
held after April 4th, the password
for meetings held in the
Montgomery Room will be given to you by the person who is leading your
meeting.

Alternative Plan for April 11 Town Hall Meeting


—by DJ Igelsrud, Senior Warden

I know that some of you do not


From The Wardens
have access to zoom or do not wish to
use zoom. Our Town Hall meeting is
for all of us, even you non-Zoomers.
I am proposing that a few of us
meet at St. Paul's in the Brewster
Room on April 11 at 4:00 pm, and
together we will join the meeting via a computer screen
there. Does this sound good to you? The only requirement to
join this group is that you must have received both vaccine
doses and that you wear a mask which covers your nose and
mouth at all times inside St. Paul's.
Call, text, or phone me (315-559-1205) to be included.
I look forward to hearing from all of you non-Zoomers!

A Town Hall Call


—by Dick Pilgrim, Junior Warden

As I’m sure everyone is aware, our


church is about to go through one of its more
important and significant periods of history by
virtue of the Open Doors project and the Capital
Campaign that will help fund it. This significance
is underscored by the fact that the project will
not only “open doors” quite literally into the church, but more figuratively
“open doors” into our next century of ministry in the Syracuse and Central
New York area. Our facilities – meaning primarily the Parish House – will
be greatly upgraded and enhanced for multiple and efficient usages
related to ministry and mission, formation and worship, hospitality and
fellowship, and -- in general -- the administrative and programmatic
functions of the church.

Since we all want to be as informed as possible before it happens,


and have our questions or concerns addressed, we’re initiating a “Town
Hall call” to you all: 1. to attend our virtual Town Hall on Sunday, April 11
at 4 p.m. and 2) to ask questions or express your concerns prior to the
event such that they might help set the agenda and provide targeted
responses to specific inquiries.

With particular regard to the latter, I ask that you feel free to send
me (rbpilgri@syr.edu) or call me (315.569.4467) with your questions or
concerns about the Open Doors project itself, and/or the Capital
Campaign, by no later than Friday, April 9. I will gather, collate, and
arrange ideas I receive, and pass them on (without personal names
attached) to the folks in charge of the Town Hall.

I look forward to seeing you at the Town Hall, and to receiving


your responses to my “call” for prior questions and concerns.

Your Vestry in Action


—by Dick Pilgrim Junior Warden

Many of you know how central the


Vestry is to the operations and ministries of
this church, but sometimes it’s useful to be reminded of what your Vestry
has specifically been up to lately. In that spirit, here are three such items:
One job the Vestry has annually is to appoint persons to a variety of
leadership positions at its February meeting. Here are the positions
and the persons appointed on February 9th this year:
Officers of the Vestry:
a. Treasurer, Walley Francis, b. Asst. Treasurer, Doug Mouncey;
c. Clerk, Jenifer Breyer
Chairs of Standing Committees:
Building & Grounds, Bill Pitcher
Finance, David Ridings
Conveners of Main Ministry Teams:
Communications, Liz Belden-Handler
Formation (momentarily vacant)
Mission and Service, Betsy Elkins
Worship, Betsy Barker
At-large Member of the Personnel Committee:
Derina Samuel
A new committee, proposed by Fr. Philip, was approved in the form of
the Children’s Ministry Team – a committee whose job it will be to
provide oversight and Formation planning for the Sunday School,
and all other forms of children and youth programming. Specifically
and initially, it will working with the National Church to implement its
children’s program called “Godly Play” as we look forward to a post
-pandemic “normalcy” across the church’s programs and
ministries.
More recently, and in light of a slow return to normalcy, the Vestry
approved temporary changes to the Sunday worship services (at
least through March) as we gear up for in-person worship even as
we continue on-line services.

St. Paul’s Spring Clean Up Day

In conjunction with the City of
Syracuse's Earth Day clean up initiative,
St Paul's will be doing a spring clean up
day on Saturday, April 24th, from 10am
to 12pm. Bring some gloves and trash
bags – we will be cleaning up the
grounds around St Paul's and the surrounding blocks. Meet us in front of
the big red doors on the Fayette St side!

Mission & Service Ministry Team
—by Betsy Elkins

When ministry teams


were established at St. Paul’s
several years ago, Mission and
Service was part of the
Community Fellowship and
Outreach Ministry team.
However, as “outreach” was too
big an area to be included within
the scope of this team, the
Mission and Service Ministry Team was officially formed as an additional
team in 2015 to cover “outreach.”
At the February Vestry meeting I was appointed to be the
convener of the Mission and Service Ministry Team formerly lead by Doug
Mouncey. In the coming months I will convene a team of people who wish
to participate in the coordination of the various mission and service
activities at St. Paul’s.
Meanwhile I have been thinking about our mission and service
work at St. Paul’s. And it includes an impressive array of work in recent
years including the following:
• We have a relationship with our neighbors at the YMCA and the
Senior Apartments there and have connected with many of the
residents through social activities, cards, gifts to them at the
holidays and by inviting them to events at St. Paul’s. This is much
appreciated by these neighbors.
• We continue to support the Samaritan Center which had its
beginning in our building 40 years ago. Many of our members
volunteer there on a regular basis and three times a year St. Paul’s
is responsible for a Sunday meal. Money raised from our weekly
soup lunches is passed along to the Samaritan Center.
• Money raised from First Friday dinner has been donated to the
Millennial Development Goals.
17 Mission & Service

• We have collected food and personal care items for many years
and now have an Open Pantry outside our doors where we place
these items for our neighbors who need them.
• We are committed to the Caring Place which was established in the
Fall of 2019. A designated space for this mission will be built as part
of our Open Doors building project so it may continue and grow.
• We have participated in the Annual Crop Walk.
• We have an affiliation with Interfaith Works and support their
projects such as the Duck Race to end Racism and the World
Interfaith Harmony Assembly.
• We keep our gardens looking attractive and neat for our downtown
neighbors and have participated in Earth Day Clean Up days. (See
article about this year’s plan on page: )
• We make our beautiful sanctuary space available for concerts and
performances in our community.
• We have hosted a breakfast for vendors at the Annual Downtown
Arts and Crafts Festival.
• 12 Step programs meet at St. Paul’s.
• We host a group of students traveling across the U.S. raising
money for cancer research each spring.
• As other needs arise our members generously contribute to such
things as hurricane relief, refugee resettlement, donations to the
Eastern Farm Workers or other agencies in our community.
These kinds of activities are not new; we have been engaged in
various works of mission and service throughout our long history. And there
is more we can do to help those in our community and in the world beyond
Syracuse.
One of the purposes of our Open Doors building project is to
develop and create new and improved spaces for mission work. We will be
taking many steps to enable us to continue and expand our mission and
service work for years to come. With renovated and restored spaces we will
be a more welcoming place for good work to be done in our community. I
am excited about what we can do. Let me know if you would like to be a
part of the Mission and Service Ministry Team.

The Open Pantry Receives Ministry Grant


—by Doug Mouncey

St. Paul’s has received a grant of $1500 for The Open Pantry from
the Diocese of Central New York! When the Open Pantry began last
summer, the expectation was that it would serve as a way to continue
relationships with individuals who were coming to The Caring Place until
we were able to renew those activities.
Since then, we have learned that the Open Pantry should continue
as a permanent mission activity of St. Paul’s. There is a definite need for
food and the Open Pantry is “user friendly”. There are no eligibility
requirements nor lots of forms to complete, it is in a location that gets a lot
of foot and public transit traffic, there are no set hours and the variety of
food ranges from items that require
some cooking as well as some that
require no preparation. Based on my
experience of the emergency food
service system throughout Onondaga
County, this user-friendly aspect is
unique and plays an important role as
individuals are frequently able to get immediate support.
We have also learned that the Open Pantry is supported by non-
members as well as our members (the capacity to develop community/
neighborhood partnerships was an important aspect of this particular
grant).
There are also challenges with hosting these activities for the long-
term, specifically good stewardship of our volunteers and financial
resources.
Receiving the $1,500 grant from the Diocese specifically
allows us to supplement the food that is donated. In addition, this will
give us a few months to look at ways to broaden our network of support
(for example, we already have an informal agreement whereby a limited
quantity of food donated to the Samaritan Center is available to the Open
Pantry).
For more information about the Ministry Grant program and other
resources available to parishes, please visit the Episcopal Diocese of
Central New York web site.

The Open Pantry Needs Your Help!
—by Jim Doyle

The Open Pantry (TOP) is regularly


providing our downtown neighbors with non-
perishable basic food items. Thank you to all
who are helping to serve Christ in our
neighbors through TOP.
The need for food from TOP continues David Webb & Betsy Elkins
daily. Did you know, right now, that more than organizing the food
1 out of every 3 households with children in the donations.
United States is food insecure? And the need
downtown is significant as well. The need is so
great that TOP must be replenished daily. Members of St. Paul’s have
been donating the non-perishable foods to support this much needed
service. WE NEED YOU! We are asking members of St. Paul’s to continue
to contribute non-perishable food items. There are different ways to share.
If you wish to share non-perishable food items, here’s how you
can help:
• On Sundays, you can place donated items on a TOP cart inside
the Fayette St porch.
• On Tuesdays, there are tables in the small room off of the church
kitchen entrance;
• When convenient for you, you can place your donated items
directly in The Open Pantry;
• The next drop off is April 17 from 10 am and 12 noon and then on
the 3rd Saturday morning of every month. Members of St. Paul’s
will be at the Fayette St. entrance of the church to collect your
donations at the curb.
If you wish to provide financial support of The Open Pantry,
please feel free to mail a check to the church payable to St. Paul’s with
“The Open Pantry” in the Memo line.
If you wish to serve as a “re-stocker” of the TOP shelves,
please email Betsy Elkins at eaelkins46@gmail.com . In your email or
phone message, please indicate if there are any days of week that you are
not available. The idea is that you would re-stock TOP’s shelves on a
particular date at the time most convenient for you.

SPC Readers for April “Mark As Story”


—by Fr. Philip

In our tradition we have a conception of the Bible as a body of


writings that are, in some sense, divinely inspired. With this in mind, we
approach scripture with the understanding that the truth of these
writings may not be readily apparent. We cannot fully understand or
know God; neither can we presume to fully
understand the meaning of Holy Scripture at first
reading.
So we approach Holy Scripture as a learning
community. Working together, we gain greater
understanding of the meaning of Holy Scripture. We
learn from our dialogue with one another and with
authors who share their insights into scripture from
different times and places. We pursue this study
because the power of Holy Scripture increases with
understanding.
I invite you to join me for a deep dive into the
Gospel of Mark during the month of April. Our resource for this study will
be a short book called Mark as Story by Dewey, Michie and Rhoads.
Each Wednesday evening discussion will be organized around a
chapter of Mark as Story.

Here are the details:


When: Wednesday Evenings 7:00-8:00 p.m.
Dates: April 14, 21 and 28
Please contact me at revmajor@stpaulsyr.org if you are interested in
joining us. We have space for four more participants
