A View from the Vicar's Desk
  Julian of Norwich was a writer and mystic in the 14th century. Actually her name was
"unknown" but her writings gave her her identity. Her love of God and connectedness to
humankind's worldliness gave her wisdom that has continued to speak through the centuries.
Words are powerful, and she painted her visions with them. Her lifetime of writing was
collected in books, one called 'Showings of Love ' where the following quote comes. There is
something about reading her touching writings that captures God's love drawing me (us) in.
Even more significant is her anonymity that tells each of us that all that we do and share in
life is all that really matters...not the self' that does them and ---the self' the world seems to
     "In this vision he showed me a little thing, the size of a hazelnut, and it
     was round as a ball. I looked at it with the eye of my understanding and
thought "What may this be?" And it was generally answered thus: "It is all that is
    made." I marvelled how it might last, for it seemed it might suddenly have
      sunk into nothing because of its littleness. And I was answered in my
          understanding: "It lasts and ever shall, because God loves it."

                                     -- Julian of Norwich
May we all see God in the smallness of things removed from ourselves and meet God in new
ways as the blessings flow------because "God loves us".    Suzanne+

God is nearer to us than our own soul, for he is ground in whom our soul stands, and he is the
means that keeps the substance and the sensuality together so that it shall never depart. For our
soul sits in God, in true rest, and our soul stands in God in sure strength, and our soul is
naturally rooted in God, in endless love. And therefore if we will have knowing of our soul,
and communing and daliance therewith, it is right to seek into our lord God in whom it is

                                          September 2, 2009
       Norm Manthey opened the meeting with a prayer. Members present were: Norm Manthey, Georgine
Shank, Lucille Shaieb, Bob Harrison, Walter Baker, Bill Vien, Phil Patton, Nan Dearman and Reverend Suzanne
Barrow. Also present was treasurer, Bill Dearman.
       Nan Dearman gave the Secretary’s Report. Phil Patton moved and Bill Vien seconded adoption of the
minutes. The motion passed.
       Bill Dearman gave the Treasurer’s Report. He presented the Balance Sheet for August 2009. He stated
we have $4,106.78 in operating checking. Next he presented the Detailed Analysis of Revenues and Expenses for
August 2009. To date our pledges are $3,615.36 above what was budgeted. Our total income is about $898.75
below what was budgeted for this year. Bob Harrison moved that the Treasurer’s report be accepted. Norm
Manthey seconded. It was unanimous. Another item under the Treasurer’s report was a letter from audit
committee members, Bill Dearman, Norm Manthey, and Bill Vien, stating that they had completed the audit and
everything was fine. The Bishop’s Committee thanked these members for their invaluable service.

        Under Old Business Reverend Barrow asked Norm Manthey about the building and grounds. Norm
Manthey stated that an AC/Heating professional checked on our system. Harper Air came and found a leak in the
Freon in the attic as well as low Freon in other areas. He charged it, replaced AC filters and checked our
condensation pumps. Norm and Reverend Barrow were very impressed with his work and his bill of $177. Bob
Harrison asked for clarification on how often to change the filters. Norm then mentioned that our parking lot
needs filling and sealing. After much discussion it was decided that we’d clean it after church on September 13th
and then seal it after church on the 20th. Norm will bring the materials and submit the bill to the treasurer for
payment. Next Reverend Barrow reported that she has gotten a health insurance policy that will be about $100 less
than her current one. She was advised to get any tests run before she changes to her new insurer. Then Reverend
Barrow stated that she will do a little editing on the Mission Funding Grant and asked that committee meet with
her after the changes are made. The last item of old Business was a report on the suit against Bishop Gullick and
the Diocese of Fort Worth. The members of the Bishop’s Committee added words of encouragement to a note
Reverend Barrow was sending him.

        Under New Business Reverend Barrow asked for an update on the architects’ assessment and a plan of
action. Walter Baker showed photos of the 2 properties that the architects felt were our best choices. He further
stated that Harold Armstrong will do an appraisal on the property along S. Green St. for $300. Phil Patton moved a
Bob Harrison seconded a motion to move ahead with this. It passed unanimously. This led Reverend Barrow to
notify the Bishop’s Committee that Trustees and Council will meet in Elizabethtown on Sept. 10, 2009. We are
being asked to give a 3 minute update. Next was discussion about the Ministry Fair which is scheduled for
September 13, 2009. The church, in cooperation with one of the vendors from Sustainable Glasgow, will provide
the hot dogs and hamburgers. The congregation is asked to bring a covered dish that would go with the hot dogs
and hamburgers. The last item of New Business was the introduction of an adult Sunday school curriculum for the
months of October and November. Father Barrow along with Bill Vien and Louise Mann will provide speakers to
help bring in the community and discuss how what we do on Sunday connects to “Monday School.” This will be
from 9:30-10:00 AM so that others in the community can get to their own services. The Bishop’s Committee will
be asked to help welcome and perhaps do some hosting.
        Father Barrow closed the meeting with “Go in peace to love and serve The Lord.”

Respectfully submitted,

Nan Dearman, Secretary to the Bishop’s committee

          There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the
            country. "Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal clerk. "Only the Ten Commandments." answered
the lady.
           "Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning
and say, "Good morning, Lord," and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning."
            A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn't find a
           space with a meter. Then he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: "I have circled the block 10 times. If
I don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. Forgive us our trespasses." When he returned, he found a citation from a
police officer along with this note "I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket I'll lose my job. Lead us not
into temptation."
         There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to his congregation: "I have good news and
bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out
 there in your pockets."
         While e driving in Pennsylvania , a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The owner of the carriage obviously
had a sense of humor, because attached to the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign... "Energy efficient
vehicle: Runs on oats and grass. Caution: Do not step in exhaust."
           A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?" A
hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy. "Really? How do you know?" the teacher asked. "You
know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven... " (Laura Curry actually said something similar about 2 years ago to me)
