Maundy Thursday Tenebrae
Apr
18
8:00 PM20:00

Maundy Thursday Tenebrae

THE SERVICE OF TENEBRAE focuses on Christ’s trial, crucifixion, and burial. As the Scriptures are read, the lights in the sanctuary are gradually dimmed, symbolizing the manner in which all of those surrounding Christ deserted him, until the only remaining light is the Christ candle. Following the last reading, the Christ candle is carried from the sanctuary, a door is slammed symbolizing the stone that was rolled against the opening of the tomb in which Jesus was buried, and the sanctuary is left in total darkness. This utter darkness is a metaphor for what the world would be like without God. The church bell is rung thirty-three times (one for each year of Jesus’ life). The Christ candle will next be seen at our Easter services. The sanctuary is left open for the evening and you may stay if you wish. When you leave, please be mindful of those who remain.

Ash Wednesday Worship
Mar
6
7:00 PM19:00

Ash Wednesday Worship

Lent is a time to pay special attention to the work of God in our lives, our community, and the world in which we live. In doing so, we open ourselves to participate in the continuing renewal God seeks to bring to all of creation. We think about how the values of God’s reign - peace, reconciliation, forgiveness, and justice for all - can be lived out in our lives and our communities. Are our choices and actions compatible with God’s will? It is a time to reflect on our baptismal promises and prepare to renew our covenant relationship with God.

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, a time of confession, assurance, and commitment. Knowing and experiencing God’s forgiveness allows us to honestly examine our lives. Without that assurance, the task could be overwhelming. Ash Wednesday reminds us that the work of Lent is always undertaken in the knowledge that rebirth and resurrection will come.

The community will gather for worship at 7:00. Pastor Jeff will offer the meditation, the choir will sing, the Eucharist will be celebrated, and ashes will be offered to those who wish them.

Erin Provenzano will draw on generation of family experience on the Bronx River to talk about its history, health and current conservation efforts. This program is appropriate for all ages and families are encouraged to come together.

Erin Provenzano is a resident of Tuckahoe, NY. Her family has been living in the same house along the Bronx River since 1908. Her interest in marine/aquatic waterways started in high school. The subject of her Girl Scout Gold Award project concerned the Long Island Sound. In college, Erin interned with Riverkeeper in Ossining and immersed herself in the Hudson River. And for her senior year thesis, she maintained the fish pass at the 180th St dam on the Bronx River with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation.

In May 2018, Erin earned her Masters degree from Manhattanville College in Education Studies with an Advanced Certificate in Sustainability.

Erin’s favorite native species in the Bronx River watershed is the American Eel. When she’s not at work with Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson, you can find her marveling at the natural beauty of NY or tending to her beehive.

Book Discussion: What the Eyes Don't See

Led by Elder Barbara Horan, the church book group meets on the third Tuesday of each month in the pastor's office. Selections are chosen by the group and reflect our desire to understand the world in which we live. The selection for Tuesday, October 16 is What The Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an America City. by Mona Hanna-Attisha. From her website https://monahannaattisha.com/:

By the crusading pediatrician who brought the fight for justice in Flint to the national spotlight, WHAT THE EYES DON’T SEE is a powerful first-hand account of the Flint water crisis, the signature environmental disaster of our time, and a riveting narrative of personal advocacy. Here is the dramatic story of how Dr. Mona used science to prove Flint kids were exposed to lead, and how she courageously went public with her research and faced a brutal backlash. With persistence and single-minded sense of mission, she spoke truth to power. The book explores the horrific reality of how misguided austerity policies and callous bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. A medical and scientific thriller, the book grapples with our country’s history of environmental injustice while telling the inspiring personal story of Dr. Mona—an immigrant, a doctor, and a scientist—whose family roots in social justice activism helped her turn the Flint crisis around.

Book Discussion: Citizens of London

Led by Elder Barbara Horan, the church book group meets on the third Tuesday of each month in the pastor's office. Selection are chosen by the group and reflect our desire to understand the world in which we live. The selection for Tuesday, September 18, is Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood By Britain in it Darkest, Finest Hour, by Lynne Olsen.

From amazon.com:

"The acclaimed author of Troublesome Young Men reveals the behind-the-scenes story of how the United States forged its wartime alliance with Britain, told from the perspective of three key American players in London: Edward R. Murrow, the handsome, chain-smoking head of CBS News in Europe; Averell Harriman, the hard-driving millionaire who ran FDR’s Lend-Lease program in London; and John Gilbert Winant, the shy, idealistic U.S. ambassador to Britain. Each man formed close ties with Winston Churchill—so much so that all became romantically involved with members of the prime minister’s family. Drawing from a variety of primary sources, Lynne Olson skillfully depicts the dramatic personal journeys of these men who, determined to save Britain from Hitler, helped convince a cautious Franklin Roosevelt and reluctant American public to back the British at a critical time. Deeply human, brilliantly researched, and beautifully written, Citizens of London is a new triumph from an author swiftly becoming one of the finest in her field."

Second New Members Class

The church is not a membership organization. It is a mission. The church is God’s mission, in a broken and fearful world. The church does not have a mission, it is a mission. The church is a movement of God’s people on our way to reconciliation.

If you have ever wondered what it means to be a member, come join us after worship September 9, 16 and 23 for three conversations about Christ's call to live lives in community, of conscience, and with caring. Those who wish to make these commitments and become  active members of the congregation will be invited to meet with the church council on Tuesday, September 25 and be presented to the congregation on October 14.

For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Pastor Jeff at 914.761.8585 or at pastorgeary@optonline.net.

Adult Education: Pictures from Palestine

After worship on Sunday, June 24, Pastor Jeff will show pictures from his recent trip in Israel and Palestine. Remembering that it is one thing to walk where Jesus walked, and another to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, he will focus primarily on his eight days cycling in the West Bank and his four days hiking in Galilee. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us in the conference room for about an hour.
