1 St. Matthew's Midweek Update May 17, 2018 NATIVE AMERICAN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT As Rector of the Episcopal Church of St. Matthew, I speak on behalf of our community that we acknowledge the traditional peoples of the land on which we stand especially the Pascua Yaqui, Sobaipuri and Tohono O'odham nations. We pay our respect to them for their care of the land. - Fr. Rick Note from Rev. Debbie What do William Hobart Hare and Thurgood Marshall have in common? Well, today, May 17 is the day the Episcopal Church has set aside to commemorate both individuals for their ministry. Bishop Hare, often referred to as "The Apostle to the Sioux," devoted himself to work among the Native Americans in the vast expanse of the Niobrara Territory. Well ahead of his time in his approach to mission work, Hare believed it was important to honor as much of the tradition and culture of the people as possible. His desire was not to destroy the fabric of Sioux culture, but to bring the gospel into the midst of it so that the people could also come to know Jesus. Instead of suppressing the customs of the people, he saw them as vessels that could communicate God's grace.in 1883, the House of Bishops divided the Missionary District of Niobrara into the districts of North and South Dakota. Bishop Hare from that point took responsibility for what would become the Diocese of South Dakota. Thurgood Marshall was a distinguished American jurist and the first African American to become an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

2 Marshall began the practice of law in Baltimore in 1933 and began representing the local chapter of the NAACP in 1934, eventually becoming the legal counsel for the national organization. He won his first major civil rights decision in 1936, Murray v. Pearson, which forced the University of Maryland to open its doors to blacks. At the age of 32, Marshall successfully argued his first case before the United States Supreme Court and went on to win 29 of the 32 cases he argued before the court. As a lawyer, his crowning achievement was arguing successfully for the plaintiffs in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, in The Supreme Court ruled that the "separate but equal" doctrine was unconstitutional and ordered the desegregation of public schools across the nation. President Lyndon Johnson appointed Marshall as the 96th Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court in 1967, a position he held for 24 years. Marshall compiled a long and impressive record of decisions on civil rights, not only for African Americans, but also for women, Native Americans, and the incarcerated; he was a strong advocate for individual freedoms and human rights. He adamantly believed that capital punishment was unconstitutional and should be abolished. As you can see by the description from the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music and published in Holy Women, Holy Men, these two saints made their marks doing ministry in and with Native and African American populations. Each of their ministries stands out for us because they honored the culture, language and tradition of the people they served. It is through their example we are also led to seek and serve Christ in all people and respect the dignity of every human being (from our baptismal covenant). Let us pray: Wakantanka, Holy God, you called your servant William Hobart Hare to bear witness to you throughout the vast reaches of the Niobrara Territory, bearing the means of grace and the hope of glory to the peoples of the Plains: We give you thanks for the devotion of those who received the Good News gladly, and for the faithfulness of the generations who have succeeded them. Strengthen us with your Holy Spirit that we may walk in their footsteps and lead many to faith in Jesus Christ, in whom the living and the dead are one; and who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. Eternal and ever-gracious God, you blessed your servant Thurgood with exceptional grace and courage to discern and speak the truth: Grant that, following his example, we may know you and recognize that we are all your children, brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ, who teaches us to love one another; and who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

3 NEW ANOUNCEMENTS Hello Angels, We would like to continue the upholstery cleaning of the chairs. Shirley and I are available on Thursdays and Fridays and an occasional Saturday. We felt that if the chairs were cleaned on Thursday or Friday the chairs ould be dry by Sunday morning.. If there is another day that would work better please let us know and we will try to accommodate you. Please contact Shirley or by phone: ) and let her know what days and time that you are going to be available in the months of May and June. We thought that teams of four ladies or men would be effective. I will be out of town at the end of May and for two weeks in June so please let Shirley know when you would like to come and participate in this service project. We will reassess the cleaning at the end of June. The chairs that have been cleaned look absolutely fantastic! We are looking forward to working for you. Kathy and Shirley

4 Hermitage House The Vestry has been considering if and how we might repair and restore the Hermitage house. It is not clear if we will have the funds to do all that is necessary to ensure the buildings long term health. So before we invest several thousand dollars, we want input from our congregation. We want to know how you will use the building if it is repaired. We are not looking for suggested uses, we have many of those. We need concrete plans. Please let us know how you WILL use it. Submit your plans to Carl Genthner, our Junior Warden, at WEEKEND ANOUNCEMENT PENTECOST- BIRTHDAY of the CHURCH MAY 20, POT LUCK PLEASE BRING YOUR FAVORITE DISH. REV Debbie will provide the birthday cake. Celebration will begin after the 10:30 service.
