                    2006 General Convention and The Call to Fast & Pray
As the clergy of our diocese gathered on this past Tuesday of Holy Week to renew our vows, we were reminded by
three of our colleagues of the importance of acknowledging that we are a church under judgment for the wayward-
ness of our decisions and actions, and of a failure of heart, mind and spirit to live in accordance with God's will.
The appropriate response, as scripture makes clear, is repentance. Repentance is a necessary backwards step of ad-
mitting our failure and then turning around (if nothing else, we have failed to keep the church from drifting from
its scriptural moorings). The way forward was also identified to be the ancient biblical practices of prayer and fast-
ing.
I attended the General Conventions in 2000 and 2003, serving as an Alternate Delegate from our diocese. I
watched the church run headlong into the crisis that it presently finds itself in. While the problem appears to be
about human sexuality -- that is what the headlines seem to say -- it is really about the deeper issues of scriptural
authority and the way that authority is exercised in the life of the church.
This General Convention, to be held in Columbus, Ohio (my old diocese), June 13-20, will have the opportunity to
turn the Episcopal Church back from its present course of splintering away from the rest of the Anglican Commun-
ion. The challenge of the Windsor Report and of other weighty documents from the primates of the Anglican Com-
munion, is to move from a stated "regret for the pain caused" to the larger church to an unequivocating statement
of repentance. The church will also need to embrace a permanent moratorium on ordinations of non-celibate homo-
sexuals as well as for same-sex blessings. So far, nothing in the church's posturing and pre-convention verbage in-
dicates that such compliance to the requirements of the primates is likely to occur.
In addition to these decisions around Windsor and sexuality, there will be an election of a new Presiding Bishop
and several "approvals" of recent bishops' elections.
There is a great deal at stake for the church this summer. As the Apostle Paul reminds us, "pray unceasingly."
For the full week prior to the start of General Convention we will try to do just that. Beginning and ending with our
weekend services on June 3/4 and 10/11, and specifically during each waking hour of the intervening days, we in-
vite you to fast and pray. You will be provided with a "guide to prayer" (one such guide is included with this
newsletter) and the opportunity to choose a preferred hour each day. Additionally, you will be invited to fast for
part or all of a day during that week. On Wednesday, at our regular 10 AM service and also at a special 6 PM ser-
vice we will give special attention to praying for the church.
While we are saying our prayers, our fellow deanery churches in Horry and Georgetown County will be offering
theirs. We have in fact committed as an entire Diocese to observe this week as a time of prayerful preparation for
General Convention, each parish making its own plans, but united in spirit as we pray for the Church.
And please know that while the church is in its present crisis, the Lord of the church holds our future in his hands.
Truly, he is waiting on us to finally learn to fully depend upon him -- that is the posture of prayer!
Yours, in Christ,
Bob+

                          The summer is almost upon us and we wish you all happy and fun vacations. The fol-
                          lowing brings to mind, “Guard what was committed to your trust” 1 Timothy 6:20
                          (NKJV)
                           In the May Board meeting we honored all Mothers of the parish by making the fol-
                           lowing $50.00 donations to Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy (Charleston, SC) Peedee Coali-
                        tion (Florence SC) that gives so much to sexually abused children and spousal abuse,
Save R Kids. ( Guyana. South America) . They all lost at the Diocesan level for the ECW Diocesan project, and
to St. Helena’s Convent. The Diocesan project was to Haiti and a large amount that was given in the name of
the Diocese of South Carolina. We of course donated $200.00 for this important work. Next year the Diocesan
project is God’s Littlest Lambs, (Honduras, Central America). God’s Littlest Lambs is a Christian family care
center dedicated February 2005 to serve the neighborhood of Flor del Campo, one of the most impoverished
areas of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
One other item of concern was the Bereavement Receptions. It is apparent that some of you are very concerned
about the receptions and how they are conducted. The Bereavement Chairman, does only what the family asks
for, and the parish family needs to be aware that they do not have to be the watchdogs for what is done. The
ECW Board is very aware and keeps a lid on all of it. We have a basic funeral menu, however, if the family or
the clergy, (usually the Rector) ask for more we try to accommodate them. When you see items on the table
(just a bit more than the usual) that you think are poor use of the Churches money, remember the family or oth-
ers have donated the money. Bereavement is usually an educated guess, and to keep your donations to a mini-
mum we try to rotate the list of people that give. If you are unable to do it, just say no. One does not have to do
every funeral. Sometimes, like when we have three funerals in a week it seems a little much, just think how the
clergy feels. There are times in everyone's lives when we are overwhelmed by what is happening to us. We all
have those times and we all need to try to love one another just a little bit more. This kind of love is an “ACT
of the Will.” One other factor is involved here, if the family wants a reception whether they have been in this
parish for a day, or for many years the ECW does it. If one can make a donation for the reception it is gratefully
accepted, if they don’t or can’t, so be it. It is still done. We do not know what they did or did not do in their
other places of residence. We do know that many times those that are grieving need this outpouring of love.
Eating after a funeral is very important symbolism. It makes us realize that life goes on and in order to sustain it
we must have food. When we lose a loved one, sometimes family members just want to dry up and go into the
grave with them, that food in the Holy Communion feeds us spiritually, but the food in Resurrection Commons
feeds the body . It is an opportunity to show our human love to those who grieve. I really hope this answers
some of the questions you might have. Sadly we have so many funerals in this Church. It is heart wrenching for
all of those involved. One other comment about the funerals that are done here. Many times in the congregation
there are non Christians as well as lapsed Christians, I have been told personally, I think I will look into Christi-
anity a bit more, or I think I need to rethink about coming to Church. Funeral receptions serve a purpose. It is
an outward sign of an invisible grace. In my tenure as President I want thank the following Bereavement Chair-
man, June Manson, Ruth Stack, Linda Mann, Lucy Biello, Nada Couture, and Lucy again. Job well done, and
not an easy one at that. “Be good, O Lord, to those that are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts.”
Psalm 125:4
The book club will not meet in June, they will meet on July 24th at the home of Carole Bradley, the book se-
lected is “Gone” by Lisa Gardner. the group gets together at 7:00 PM. The July meeting is important as we will
be selecting the next three books. The club will not meet in August .
One other bit of news, the Corporate Office of Radio Shack has given us permission to sell our cookbooks in
front of the store, at the Walmart Center in Surfside. Details still have to be worked out with the store manager.
It gives us an opportunity to be seen in the community. Sign up sheets for the hour or two that you can help will
be in the Commons as soon as I talk to the store manager. When and if you shop there, and we all do, Thank
the store manager for allowing us this opportunity. We need to sell the cookbooks not store them, and all of the
money goes to the Music Ministry of this Church. Please, a shower gift, a little token gift, remember the cook-
book.

                                         Since we have created our Resurrection Day Lily Garden
                                         the following people have been honored or remembered
                                         with a contribution to the garden. If you would like to re-
                                         member someone special this might be one way for you to
                                         do it. At some point in time this garden will be beautiful.
                                         At this time it is a work in progress. A donation of $10 is
                                         suggested to keep this meaningful project going well into
                                         the future.

                                                   Prayer Ministry Training
                                    One of the subjects which Jesus models clearly and teaches insistently is the
                                    centrality of prayer. The Sermon on the Mount is full of Jesus’ teaching on
                                    prayer (Mt. 5-6). In some cases, it is clearly conversation with God about our
                                    own concerns, but often it is to be for one another. That compassion is to be
                                    the hallmark of all disciples of Jesus (Jn. 13:34-35). It is for this reason that
                                    the parish offers several ministries of prayer for its members and friends.
                                    With this end in view, we are launching a new class this June for those who
                                    wish to be learn more about the ministry of prayer. On Tuesday, June 6 at
                                    5:30, we will launch a 10 week study on Healing Prayer. The class will meet
                                    for about an hour each week, using resources from Christian Healing Minis-
                                    tries. Together we will examine the place of healing in Jesus’ ministry, the
                                    types of healing possible, the work of the Holy Spirit and other related topics.
 Whether you are a current prayer minister with a calling to deepen your ministry, have an interest in exploring
 such a ministry or just want to know more about prayer, I hope you will join us.
 If you have questions, feel free to contact Fr. Caswell, Fr. Lewis or Karen Kearney. We would be delighted to
 talk with you further.

                                 From the Associate Rector
                                                                                          (Continued from page 1)
With that said, it nonetheless lies heavily upon the heart of many of us as leaders that there is a huge slice of
our community we do not reach and does not join in our worship. There is a younger generation that hasn’t
heard the Father’s call. Or perhaps having heard it, they cannot find a place to give voice to their worship in a
language that is all their own and truly communicates their heart to Him.
                                                   "180"
To fulfill our purpose and meet that need, we will launch a new worship service on June 11 that will truly be
the "new song" of Psalm 96. We have decided to call this new service "180". Allow me to explain what this
does and does not mean.
We are all familiar with the expression, ‘do a 180'. It means simply to turn around and go in the opposite direc-
tion. Let us be clear, we are not changing who WE are as a parish. The service planned will still be clearly
Anglican, with prayers, lessons, teaching and communion in an order all of us would find familiar. Neither are
we changing what we do at our other services. You will continue, at all other times, to find the worship you
love and by which you communicate your love to the Father, in its familiar form and content.
What we do hope to change... are the lives of those who come to join us in worship. We are seeking to turn
people living in the world from paths that lead away from God into paths that will bring them near. To do that
will require a ‘new song’. The music and its accompaniment will be that which is familiar to a mostly younger
age group. It will be an even more ‘visual’ experience, making use of video projection, drama and similar tools
to reach a generation that is very visually oriented. Though it may look and sound different, it will be no less
reverent. Worship is encounter with God. We will provide that. Henry Blackaby has defined worship as "The
response of an adoring heart to the magnificence of God." That is what we pray to make possible for a whole
new part of our community by this addition to our weekly worship opportunities.
                                                Your Part
Quite appropriately, we take this leap of faith the Sunday after Pentecost. On that day, people from throughout
the then known world were presented with the gospel. We are going to continue that work and every member
of the parish can play a part to support this outreach.
For some it will mean making the commitment to support the service by your participation. If you sense that
calling, please join us. If not, continue in the worship that blesses you, but consider other vital roles.
The most important task ahead is prayer. No work of God’s Kingdom is fruitful without it. One of the shortest
paths to failure is to attempt something in God’s name but in our own strength. Divine assistance, particularly
in bringing others to God, is essential. You can pray for this service, no matter when you yourself attend.
You can also invite others. Even if this service is not for you, you probably know people who would be
blessed by it. Invite them. Resources are being developed to help make that easy. Personal invitation will be an
absolute key to our success.
Above all, be patient. Launching a new service requires many changes and some sacrifice for everyone. As we
walk together through the coming days, let us extend grace to one another as we work out all the details needed
for this outreach to be a success.
This is God’s purpose for us, to bring in to the worship of His Kingdom, as many of the world’s people as we
can. I look forward to seeing how he will use ALL of us in the weeks ahead to that end.

Finally, the new Board was installed at the Charleston Café on Saturday. I leave the ECW into the capable hands of
your new President, Sue Brunson, and another new face Mareen Gibson as her Vice President. We are so fortunate
and the Lord smiled one day in April on “The Church of the Resurrection” Many times in my Presidency and from
the very beginning I have used this quote from Ephesians 4:32, "Be kind and considerate to one another, forgiving
each other, just as Christ forgave you”
Remember the Gift shop, check it for gifts. Jean has new merchandise arriving and we have cards. The next board
meeting will be on Thursday June 8th at the Church, Sue Brunson presiding. The bakeless Bake sale will be on
Sunday June 25th. Give as generously as you can so that the important work of ECW continues.
I want to thank all of the women of this Church for the wonderful three years of my Presidency. Most of you have
been the most supportive group I have ever dealt with. The ECW is evolving to meet the needs of many younger
women, and if you attended the Diocesan meetings, it is heartwarming to see the women following in the footsteps
of those who previously walked before them, but bringing new energy and vitality into the modern working
women's world. Bishop Skilton in his remarks, commented that when "they wanted to get something really done it
was given to ECW. They are the doers and they are formidable, and they always have been."
My love to you all. God Bless all of you.

                                     RSCM Summer Course
Two of our choristers, Bonnie Wallace and Drew Trautman, have been selected to participate in the
Royal School of Church Music Summer Course for Young Adults to be held in New York City this year.
They are two of only 36 singers selected from all over the United States to participate. From June 19 -
25th, they will sing under the direction of David Dunnett, Organist and Choirmaster of Norwich Cathe-
dral, England and sing services at St. Thomas Episcopal Church on 5th Avenue, and Trinity Episcopal
Church, Wall Street. These courses are fast paced and give choristers the opportunity to train with some
of the outstanding church musicians of our day. The music selected is usually quite difficult and they are
expected to sing it well in 5 days. The result is musical growth and the ability to concentrate for long pe-
riods of time. Friends are made and the opportunity to have adventures in the City will help make the
week memorable and fun. It is by the gifts of parishioners within our parish that make these courses
available to our choristers. What a wonderful gift to these students. Thank you!
