                 All Souls is a eucharistically centered cathedral whose life is formed by scripture, the baptismal covenant and our engagement
                 with the world about us. It is a community where all are welcome, trust is present, risks are taken, and where our gifts and graces
                 enable us to be who God knows us to be.

                                           FROM THE DEAN
                                 The Very Rev. Todd Donatelli
                                   All Saints Day: Seeing Larger

                      I love All Saints Day. I am not sure why it grabs me so much, but I do have some
    hunches about it. I love the fall, the turning of the seasons, the crisp air, and something about the
    flow from All Hallows Eve (Halloween) to celebrating all the saints. Perhaps there is something pa-
    gan in all of us (hope it is clear that pagan is not the same thing as satanic—its origin has more to do
    with rural persons than persons opposed to God); that part of us that connects to what the earth pro-
    claims to us (which is a Christian doctrine—the revelation of all creation). Perhaps it is the child-like
    part of us that knows to be both a bit scared, yet also a bit intrigued by the creeping darkness of
    the season. Perhaps it is the understanding that when life is getting darker, we are not alone. We
    are indeed surrounded by a cloud of witnesses, some alive and some who have died, who diligently
    proclaim that light shines in the darkness, who diligently proclaim that we have and need each other.
             I found myself confronted with a painting by Rembrandt this summer. Entitled Philosopher in
    Meditation, it is filled with much shadow, darkness, and piercing places of light. An inquiry to an art-
    ist friend revealed the painter’s understanding of light emerging from the dark, always emerging
    from the dark.
             In this season of global anxiety, we are often tempted to think that what we see and hear is
    all we know and all we have. It is tempting to forget that we are surrounded by a great cloud of
    witnesses. It is tempting to think that seasons of increasing darkness and increasing coldness are best
    dealt with by turning in, holding up, and hunkering down.
             I think All Saints proclaims something very different. It sings of going out, gathering with all
    the saints, looking to see all the saints “you can meet them in school, or in lanes, or at sea, in church,
    or in trains, or in shops or at tea…” (Hymnal 1982). You can find them in silence, or in groups, or tai
    chi. This feast day tells us that we are surrounded with folks whose lives are like ours with the same
    fears and joys, the same graces and burdens, the same hopes and dreams. They, their experience,
    wisdom, and presence are ours in this and every season.
             In the weeks leading up to the election, the two presidential candidates met at a fund raiser
    and offered some wonderful self-deprecating humor. For a brief moment, they and we were one:
    people with common foibles, common yearnings, and a deep common need to laugh. May we not
    give in to the anxiety of the times, but strive to be those who gather ourselves and each other, peo-
    ple who see the lightness of life amid its weight, people of deep laughter and joy, people who know
    we are not only not alone, but in deep need of each other, in need of each and every last one of us.

            Ever living God, today we rejoice in the holy men and women of every time and place. May
    their prayers bring us your forgiveness and love (Liturgy of the Hours).

                                NOTES, REFLECTIONS, AND PRAYERS
                                      The Rev. Canon Brian Cole
            David Key met me the first day of seminary. I was 21 years old and had never lived in a city
   before (Louisville, KY) and did not know what I did not know. David, for what reason I still do not know,
   guided me seamlessly into seminary life.
            David was a doctoral student from Augusta, GA, and knew every one on campus. He juggled
   marriage and doctoral coursework and a job running the seminary guesthouse. And he took time to
   make sure I made a smooth adjustment to life as a seminarian.
            During that first year of seminary, I had many transitions, including the death of my father.
   David continued to check on me that first year and, to this day, calls me on occasion to see how I am do-
   ing. At present, I am doing fine, and I still credit David with shepherding me into adulthood.
            At All Souls, we have recently revamped our Welcome Class and have added a program of
   shepherds for newcomers to the Cathedral. To quote from our welcome material, “a shepherd is a
   guide, a friend, and a bridge into life within our parish family.” Shepherds help newcomers make good
   transitions into life here at All Souls. There are many ways to serve in a shepherding capacity: an invite
   to a special worship service so the newcomer doesn’t have to attend alone; brunch after church; or help-
   ing to answer a question about a ministry here at All Souls. These ways of welcoming and supporting,
   and more, are so very helpful to ensure that the newcomer to our Cathedral finds their place and their
   role within our family of faith.
            We are currently in need of folks to serve as shepherds for several newcomers to All Souls. On
   Saturday, November 22, we will have a confirmation retreat, and on that day we will match new-
   comers with All Souls shepherds who will pledge to maintain contact with each other for the re-
   mainder of the church year.
            I am asking you to consider serving as a shepherd for the many newcomers who are drawn to
   this Cathedral and desire to put down roots in our parish. I recognize many of you juggle many tasks in
   your lives. I hope you have memories of being welcomed here by shepherds who made sure that All
   Souls became more than just a lovely place to worship but also a home and a prayerful anchor through
   “the changes and chances of this life,” as well. if you are interested in this rich and rewarding ministry,
   please contact Susie Stokes at
            Also, please know we will have “support the shepherd” forms so that you will have several sug-
   gestions on how to offer your wisdom about life here at All Souls to newcomers.

 Fall offerings will center on the work and manifestations of Reconciliation and Redemption; how we invite
 and encourage communal and individual restoration, communal and individual renewal of life.

 November 2: Learning from Sabbatical Time: The Pilgrimage of Reconciliation and Redemption.
 Members of the congregation will accompany the Dean in exploring things learned both by the Dean and by
 the congregation during the months of the Dean’s sabbatical. Themes: Taizé and Coventry as communal pat-
 terns of reconciliation, elements of mystery and beauty (from Deborah Douglas’ “In Residence” presenta-
 tions), pilgrimage and adventure, text and the unknown, violence and courage.

                                              Thomas Merton
         Please join the All Souls Book Group for a two-month encounter with the writings of Thomas Merton. Ar-
guably one of the most influential Catholic writers of the 20th century, Merton was a Trappist monk of the Ab-
bey of Our Lady of Gesthsemani in Kentucky, a poet, a social activist, a student of comparative religion keenly
interested in inter-religious understanding, and the author of numerous acclaimed works on spirituality and con-
         The first book we’ll read, in November, is New Seeds of Contemplation, from 1961. Here is an excerpt
from the back cover of the 2007 edition: “New Seeds of Contemplation seeks to awaken the dormant inner
depths of the spirit so long neglected by Western man, to nurture a deeply contemplative and mystical dimen-
sion in our lives.”
         And the second book we’ll read, in late November and into December, is Conjectures of a Guilty By-
stander (1968), in which the reader watches the more socially engaged Merton grapple with questions cultural,
racial, political. The following description is from the back cover of the 2007 edition: “With his characteristic
forcefulness and candor, he brings the reader face-to-face with such provocative and controversial issues as the
‘death of God,’ politics, modern life and values, and racial strife—issues that are as relevant today as they
were thirty years ago.”
Our Merton meeting times are as follows:
Monday, November 3, 7:00 p.m., first floor conference room of the Warner Building. Book to be discussed:
New Seeds of Contemplation (1961).
Monday, November 10, 7:00 p.m., first floor conference room, Warner Building. This will be our second meet-
ing about New Seeds of Contemplation. (Please note that those not able to make the first New Seeds… meeting
are welcome to join us for the second.)
Monday, December 8, 7:00 p.m., first floor conference room, Warner Building. Book to be discussed: Conjec-
tures of a Guilty Bystander (1968).
(Both Merton books are now available at Accent on Books on Merrimon Avenue, at reduced cost, thanks to Lewis
         And please also mark on your calendars Wednesday, December 10, when Bill J. Leonard, dean and
professor of church history at Wake Forest University School of Divinity, will give a lecture at All Souls entitled,
“Why Thomas Merton Still Matters.” (December 10, 2008, is the 40th anniversary of Merton’s death.)
         The All Souls Book Group is the nucleus of the Kay Falk Literary Project, centered at the Cathedral as part
of its teaching mission. For more information, contact Emilie White at Newcomers are al-

        The Cathedral of All Souls will celebrate the Feast of All Souls with a Requiem Eucharist on Friday, Oc-
tober 31 at Noon. This service has become an annual event that holds much meaning for those who attend, es-
pecially those who have lost loved ones over the past year. As has become custom, the names of all those who
have passed in the diocese since All Souls of last year will be read individually in the service.
        The listed necrology will also appear in the leaflet for a special service that will be held on Sunday
evening, November 2, at 5:00 p.m. The service will be a festival Eucharist celebrating the Feast of All Saints.
The Cathedral Choir will participate in the Eucharist by singing Requiem in E-flat by Josef Rheinberger.
Rheinberger was a 19th-century German composer who was a contemporary of Brahms. His Requiem is entirely
unaccompanied, and the text and music of this piece expresses a profound sense of beauty, quiet joy, and
hope. A festive reception will be held following the service.

                                   RECONCILIATION IN PHILADELPHIA
Editor’s Note: On October 3-4, sixteen members of the Diocese of Western North Carolina, including Molly Walling,
Shawna Gilmore, and Todd Donatelli of All Souls, participated in a two day recognition by the Episcopal Church of its past
complicity, silence, and benefiting from slavery in the U.S. The days culminated in a service of repentance at which the Pre-
siding Bishop was celebrant and preacher. The article below is the Dean’s account of the trip which was written for the our
diocesan paper, The Highland Episcopalian, and copied here)

 (Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission).
         Listening to the stories offered for the recent
 Day of Repentance at St. Thomas in Philadelphia
 brought the following realization: as deeply as Dad’s
 story shaped us, it was the experience of one person
 in one generation of our family. I was not the prod-
 uct of generations of prisoners. I found myself con-
 necting the importance of knowing Dad’s story, the
 healing it continues to bring to me and my family,
 with the powers of the stories heard in Philadelphia.
 Instead of seeing these simply as horror stories whose
 knowledge would not bring hope, I began to see
 them in the context of how stepping into the horror
 and shame of Dad’s story has brought a certain free-
 dom we had not known for some time.

   “I am not a nurse,” she said. “I trained as a dieti-
 cian and became interested in technology. I couldn’t
 believe all that could be done by technology, not just
 faster, but better.” She went back to school and
 earned her doctorate in instructional technology from

 Troy University has thousands of students. Susie’s role
 was in designing courses to make education accessi-
 ble and effective.
          She was the university’s coordinator of dis-
 tance learning from 1995-2000. “It was consuming
 my life,” she said, “and I went back to the nursing
 department to teach older students to get over the
 fear of technology.” In retirement, she is manager of

                               GIFTS FOR CHURCH OF THE ADVOCATE
         Hello, you may have already seen the following notice, which was included in Bishop Taylor's weekly
newsletter and printed in last month's Highland Episcopalian. Even though I wrote the notice, I hadn't given seri-
ous thought to its contents until this morning. As I was considering what to give, it occurred to me that I am a part
of a very vibrant, caring group of people who would find great meaning and satisfaction in giving as a group
for this very special cause. With a grateful heart for you and the many gifts we share.
         Please join with Church of the Advocate to ensure a gift-filled, wondrous holiday for 125+ of Asheville’s

small flashlights; sleeping bags; personal toiletries and travel-sized items, including small deodorants and hand
sanitizers; special women’s items, such as makeup, bras, panties of all sizes, sanitary products; multi-vitamins;
jockey shorts for men.
Note on sizes: large and extra large sizes are most needed.

could buy/provide 125 of one item from the list to give as a group. Please feel free to buy as few or as many

Deadline for gift submissions: Monday, December 15, but the sooner the better so we can determine what
else is needed (or no longer needed thanks to you!).
Where to drop off: Book group, or call me and I'll make arrangements to pick up any gift items.
Questions?: Contact Robbin Whittington by phone: 828-299-0977, or e-mail:.
         Last year, one of the larger men cried when he got his gift box and said that it was the first Christmas
present he had received in five years. Many thanks for your participation in this ministry of an abundant Christ-
mas for the homeless.
         *If you don't have time to shop (or the list is a bit overwhelming), and want to send money, you can
"gift" a check payable to Church of the Advocate, and mail to 60 Church Street, Asheville NC 2880, as a tax-
deductible gift. If you'd like to give a gift card, also mail to COA, 60 Church Street, Asheville NC 28801, also

                The Vestry is responsible for the administration of the life of the parish; its program life, its fiscal
     life, its properties, and it spiritual welfare. Being a member of the Vestry is an important and responsible
     ministry. It is an exciting place to offer oneself, and an opportunity to work closely with a wonderful group
     of people as All Souls works to fulfill its mission as the cathedral parish in Western North Carolina. In an
     effort to provide candidates representative of all aspects of parish life and in order to have the required
     number of candidates in a timely fashion, the vestry has appointed a nominating committee who will pre-

                                      ALL SOULS WEBSITE CHANGES!
         Please check out the new Google "embedded" calendar. It is far easier to maintain and update, and
 should prove more useful to members of the community because it extends beyond the current month. You
 can click on any event once to see more details, if there are any. The calendar events are divided into six
 categories—Worship and All Souls Community Events, Special Events, Cathedral Groups and Meetings,
 Youth Events, Weddings, and Community events. You can make events from these categories appear and
 disappear by clicking on the blue triangle on the top right of the calendar, next to the word "Agenda." You
 can also click on these categories in the "color key" above the calendar to see listings of only events in that
         If you already use Google calendar at home or work, you can easily transfer events to your own cal-
 endar. If there's a meeting or parish dinner you plan to attend, for example, you can click once on that
 event and then again on "copy to my calendar."
         The website Photo Album has also been updated. Please let me know (
 if you have any historical or current photos to contribute.—Tahani Sticpewich, All Souls webmaster.

         Tahani lives outside Weaverville with her husband Bill and three children (Miranda, Milo, and John).
 They moved to Asheville ten years ago from Oakland, CA, where Tahani worked as a computer administra-
 tor and trainer at UC Berkeley. Since moving, Tahani has been mostly taken up with homeschooling the chil-
 dren, but in the last year has begun doing part-time web development work. Her biggest project so far is
 writing the code behind All Souls member Frazier Worth's website,
         She looks forward to making the All Souls website a really useful tool for the community, and would
 love to hear from you if you have ideas for               improving it or photos to contribute (email

                             Consider your pledge to All Souls as another way of saying “thank you” to the generations
                     of people who came before us and loved us enough to give us something in this beautiful place that
                     we worship and a “thank you” to the God who loved us enough to give us everything.
                             Please remember to bring your pledge card to church with you on Sunday, November 2,
                     and join all of us in making our financial commitment together to this great community of All Souls!—
                     Your Stewardship Commission.

         Giving things away makes one feel blessed, if it is carried out with the right heart. I try to have that thought
in mind when I give or when I am asked to give something or some time. I feel that I when the tide is low for me, it is
the time that I need to give of myself to find that special blessing from my friends and from God.
         I have found at All Souls that I have many ways to give, not just my tithe but also in the programs that serve
the church and serves God. I make it a point to look for things that make me give of myself a little more instead of
just the giving of the money. Being with the All Souls family has enriched my life to be able to give by serving on
committees and assisting in children's Sunday School. There is always something that everyone can do, keep looking
for that special place that blesses you most.—Deb Ramsey
        “Caring for that over which you have no ownership,” this WIKI definition of Stewardship gives me both a
cause to pause and a heightened sense of gratitude.
        I have real need for discernment when I look at my checkbook and think of the care that I give to my house,
my car, my food, my dogs, my clothes, and other things in which I claim ownership. Do these expenditures go be-
yond responsibility into indulgence?
        I will continue to ask this question. However, my gratitude list to All Souls for the many opportunities to be a
Steward exceeds my guilt list. In addition to the opportunity for education in the Christian faith through various pro-
grams, speakers, and “knock them out of the park” sermons, the choices for outreach ministry are many. I may not
be able to go to New Orleans to help the victims of Katrina or participate in every offering, but I can support those
who do with my time, my money, and any talent I might have been given.
        For me, the real heart of All Souls lies in community. The hospitality, the deep caring that parishioners share
with each other and with the community at large, the time and attentiveness that our priests and deacons give to us
in both joyous and sad times are truly grace filled gifts. So we want this place, this Cathedral of All Souls to con-
tinue to be a conduit for God’s Grace . It is said that “you can’t out give God,” and I do believe that the more we
give of our time, and our talents, and our money, the more we receive of God’s working power in our lives.—Diane

            Come Bowling for Turkeys!!!

       Alright EYC... It’s time to get our bowling groove on at the second annual Turkey Bowl set to
take place Sunday, November 9, 2008. All youth from the diocese are invited to team-up at Sky
Lanes bowling alley in Asheville from 4:00–6:00 p.m. to BOWL for Turkeys!
       Bowling for turkeys is a way for EYC to raise funds for donation to Loving Food Resources
(LFR), so that they can provide a holiday ham or turkey during Thanksgiving for people who are living
with HIV/AIDS.        Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for LFR. Please recruit as many
friends and family to sponsor you and donate to this organization. (Any contribution would be nice, but
$20 would be a great goal to shoot for!!!)
       Sky Lanes has given us a discount and is only charging $2 per game, plus free shoe rental. Bring
your bowling money and plan to give your donation to Mike Stevenson, Director of LFR, upon arrival at
Sky Lanes.

Contemplative Evening Prayer Service
Every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. there will be a service of evening prayer offered with a contemplative structure.
          The intention is to not only use the Prayer Book Office, but also to make use of services from some of the Religious Orders in
our tradition. The service will be marked with periods of intentional silence for prayer and reflection. For those who want even more
silence, the service will be preceded by 15 minutes of silence.
          Please join us in the chancel and help us say the daily office of Evening Prayer. For further information contact the Rev.
Canon Brian Cole or Deacon David Nard.
