 The People of     I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

                                     Faith and Science
            Interested in how science and the Christian faith complement each other?

                   Are you a “committed to science as a Christian” person?

           Looking to go deeper into the question of human origins and human purpose
                       from both the perspective of the Bible and science?

A “science-minded” individual is sought for a new “Faith and Science” partnership at Our Redeemer.
            This person could be a health-care professional, science teacher, engineer,
          or anyone scientifically-minded who is open and interested in questions of faith,
                        and of ultimately seeing the two as complementary.

           Together with Pastor Ryan, this individual would attend one week of classes
         and follow-up seminars at Princeton University/Princeton Seminary, New Jersey,
       at no cost for tuition or room/board. Taught by renowned theologians and scientists,
           participant would receive a Certificate in Science for Ministry from Princeton,
                  and commit to fostering dialogue at ORLC, and within our Synod
                                   on questions of faith and science.

                       If you are interested, please speak with Pastor Ryan.

                      July, 2009 CONGREGATION COUNCIL MEETING
Present:
Pastor Ryan Mills, Floy Johnson, Dorothy Graham, Brooks Maxwell, Mel Hammer, Natalie Tims, Nancy Gibbs,
Stephen Wong, Ann Weldon, Cindy Dolezal

Absent:
Paul Templin

Meeting called to order by Brooks Maxwell at 12:15 a.m. Pastor Ryan Mills opened with a prayer and led a
Bible study focused on the reading of Ephesians 1 from today’s service.

Secretary’s Report
June Council minutes were not available and the secretary’s report was tabled until next month.

Treasurer’s Report
•   Stephen Wong is now officially on the account as a signer.
•   Nancy reviewed the attached treasurer’s report.
•   There was discussion on the role of the treasurer as a gatekeeper for funds and how the approval to reimburse

was seconded by Floy for a petty cash account of $200.00 to be kept in the office, the motion carried.
• A need for training for counter was recognized, Cindy will lead this class Aug. 16th after the service.
• Natalie moved the treasurer’s report be accepted, seconded by Mel, motion carried.
• Due to Wachovia policy there is a need to name an “owner” of our account. This position has no financial
    authority but can add signatures or new treasurers and open/close accounts. This person can be anyone in the
    congregation, does not need to be a council member so therefore would not need to change if current council
    member is named and then goes off council. Pastor Ryan moved and Natalie seconded Brooks Maxwell be

Ann Weldon to gather further information from Kendra.

this group will be tracked as a separate line item. The morning group has met and would like to organize the
fellowship and refreshment time after Sunday services.
• Regarding re-striping the parking lot, the plan that was laid out would not pass Grand Prairie code.
     Natalie will look into a quote for concrete if the option is to expand the parking area.

Prayers offered for each other

                                     From Pastor Kate Warn
                               Missionary and Pastor in Residence
                           Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone
                                  Every time I turn around in Sierra Leone, I meet children. Perhaps it would
                                  be more accurate to say that the children meet me. Children are quick to
                                  greet me when I’m out walking. They shout and wave and often times
                                  come running and jumping to shake hands and walk along. The children
                                  are often the first to meet me with wide-eyed curiosity and welcome when
                                  I visit Lutheran congregations, and they often outnumber the adults in
                                  attendance. “Let the children come to me for it is to such as these that
                                  the kingdom of heaven belongs,” Jesus said (Matthew 9:14). From what I
                                  can see, the children are ready and eager to come and belong.

                                  This past Sunday I went to worship for the first time at Christ the King
                                  Lutheran Church in Baw-Baw Village, 11 miles or an hour and a half car
                                  ride over muddy, bumpy roads from Freetown. Baw-Baw is a fishing
village next door to #2 River, and Pastor Yasim Turay serves both communities. Lord of the White Sand
Lutheran Church at #2 River is the mother congregation of Christ the King. Baw – Baw village begins where
the white sand of River #2 village gives way to sand which is, well, sandy brown.

 When I arrived at Christ the King on Sunday a handful of children were moving chairs and benches from
the nearby Lutheran primary school to the church for Sunday school and worship. Preparing the space for
worship and cleaning up afterward — carrying furniture and worship items – seems to be done by the
children in most congregations. There are no age limits here when it comes to opportunities for ministry
and service.

Sunday school began when 4 girls, probably 9 or 10 years old, stood up and started singing. Singing praise
                       to God is something they know in their hearts and so these girls were confident
                       and joyous song leaders. Then the Sunday school teacher asked one of the girls
                       to pray, and she prayed from her heart as if talking with God was the most
                       natural thing in the world. Even as I was thinking that there would be few
                       American children I know who would lead and pray as easily and boldly as
                       these kids, I was also struck by the content of the girl’s prayer. I was reminded
                       in a profound way just how different the African worldview is from my own
                       worldview. In the course of her prayer, this young girl prayed fervently for
                       protection against the power of witches, demons and evil spirits. This wasn’t the
                       first time I’ve heard witches referenced in the context of prayer, but it was the first
                       time I’ve heard a child give voice to her very real fears in this way.

                            In the traditional African understanding and experience of the world, witches,
                            demons and spirits are real and active in daily life. I continue to learn about this
                            world view in conversation with others. It would be easy for western Christians
to dismiss or judge such traditional African beliefs as irrational superstitions, but doing so would also dismiss
the opportunity to understand the gospel as powerful good news addressing culture with promise and hope
in a way that meets people’s deepest fears and needs.

The young girl who spoke of witches and demons brought her fears and her faith to church on Sunday,
and she prayed with utter trust in an almighty and saving God. That seems to me to be a pretty good
embodiment of what the church is all about. Let the little children come, Jesus said, and older people too,
let them come to hear good news. Let them come, and know the One whose power is greater than any sin,
any fear, any unseen spirit or evil force that threatens our lives.

Presiding Bishop's Call to Prayer
                God's Work. Our hands.
Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

"Marked with the cross of Christ forever, we are claimed, gathered, and sent
for the sake of the world." We are an evangelizing church, and this mission
flows out of a life attentive to God's Word and rooted in unceasing prayer for
the Spirit's life-giving work with the Word. In the seven weeks leading to the
start of the ELCA Churchwide Assembly on Aug. 17, I invite you to join in 50
days of renewed and focused prayer around the Scriptures that will be used
at the assembly, when your co-workers in the Gospel are daily gathered,
centered and sent into mission.

The accompanying Scriptures, prayers and songs are a resource you can
use in small groups, in individual devotions or as a congregation-wide
initiative. As you gather around God's Word, I ask you to pray especially
for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, for those who will gather
in Minneapolis, for decisions to be made, and for faithfulness in discerning
those directions to which God is calling this evangelizing church in mission
and service for the sake of the world.

In God's grace,
Mark S. Hanson
Presiding Bishop

                                Daily Prayers for the Church

O God, you open the hearts of your faithful people by sending into us the light of the Holy Spirit.
Direct the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America by the light of that Spirit,
that we might have a right judgment in all things
and rejoice at all times in your peace;
through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord.
Or
Gracious Father, we pray for your holy catholic church.
Fill it with all truth and peace.
Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it;
where in anything it is amiss, reform it;
where it is right, strengthen it; where it is divided, reunite it;
for the sake of Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord.
(Evangelical Lutheran Worship)
 Or
Almighty God, grant to your Church your Holy Spirit
and the wisdom which comes down from heaven,
that your Word may not be bound but have free course
and be preached to the joy and edifying of Christ's holy people,
that in steadfast faith we may serve you
and in the confession of your name may abide to the end;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Lutheran Book of Worship)
