SECURITY AT BINKLEY Thank you all for your patience with the new security system. It is working well so far. We are asking that everyone who has a Binkley keycard get in the habit of using it, and that if you have an old key, and unless you need it to open doors other than the ones that now read the keycards, please turn it in to the church office. This will reduce the chance that someone will inadvertently unlock, and leave unlocked, one of those primary doors. And, as always, if you do unlock another door in the church, kindly ensure that it is relocked when you leave. If you need a keycard, call Mo. Thank you! TORO, TORO! You are invited to ride the Binkley Toro lawn tractor this Spring and Summer as you help to improve the look of our grounds. Not only that, you are invited to display your Big Bad Wolf skills as you blow the clippings off our sidewalks with the church s power blower.

Thank you to all members of our congregation who prayerfully voted in this deacon election process. The nine who have been elected will be ordained during worship on May 17. They will begin serving families after their ordination. Please express your support and appreciation for their willingness to serve in this important role.

6 Dear Friends, I write to express my thanks, and to share how much I look forward to joining you on May 15th to begin a new partnership in ministry... First the thanks! Let me start by expressing my appreciation for the work of your Search Committee over the past several months. The committee was thorough in questions; compassionate, searching and open with this candidate; and warm in hospitality to Lynn and me. I had many opportunities to visit in their homes, and to share at table with so many combinations of committee members. Four people actually made a weekend scouting trip all the way to Rochester. Lynn and I appreciated the tone of that visit as well. Beyond their conversations with me, the Search Committee thoughtfully created opportunities for meeting staff and elected church leaders, and then more recently arranged times for engaging in conversation with the whole congregation on our candidate weekend in Chapel Hill. Sincere thanks to all of you collectively for the powerful reception on that weekend of March 1. I appreciated your honest questions and concern as much as the warm affirmation you shared. It was good to get interviewed one last time by the children of the church (who know the best questions for really getting to know someone), and to have visits with so many different groups of you. A strong thank-you to your church staff! Thanks for working with an unfamiliar out-of town partner in putting together worship and helping to guide him through a first worship experience at Binkley. And thanks to each Binkley staff-member for the warm personal welcome. Finally I am very grateful for the work of Denise Cumbee Long, who has offered you dedicated service as your Interim Minister. It isn t easy stepping into a pastoral role after a long-term minister leaves a church. I know I am married to an Interim! I want to give a public and heartfelt thank you for the presence and leadership Denise has provided in her challenging role; for her willingness to share openly with me; and for the good work I hear she has done in paving the way for this new pastoral relationship. The two months between now and when I arrive to be your Minister promise from my vantage-point to move by swiftly. Lynn and I have taken the first steps towards selling our house, started packing boxes, and started bidding farewell to long-time friends. While some Lake Avenue Baptist Church members were not surprised to hear I will be moving, others have been caught off-guard. Every day has a lot of goodbyes and some sadness. However Lake Avenue members who have done research to find out about Binkley have said they feel this to be a good fit and a genuine call. I am grateful for their blessings. I trust their discernment even as I trust yours. The beginning of a new relationship between a pastor and a congregation is characteristically a time of great expectations, high hopes, and sometimes more than a little concern. A Lake Avenue member recently put it in typically blunt upstate New York style: Yeah. We know what you re like. But what s the next one going to be like? All the interviewing in the world won t provide a guarantee of what the future holds. We each long for the very best for the church, its ministry and life together. I too have high hopes, feel great excitement, and experience an occasional case of nerves. Yet deep within I feel assurance that God is in the mix of this new partnership. I know I am privileged to be moving from one adventurous, faithful, visionary community of faith to another! And I am sure that in the weeks ahead you will share openly with me your concerns, your dreams and your hopes for the extraordinary church you are. May you have a good final few weeks in this season of already/not yet ; plentiful opportunity for warm thanks to your Interim Minister; and a blessed, joyful Easter. In Christ s Peace, Peter JB Carman
7 SEARCH COMMITTEE WRAP-UP On Sunday, March 1, 2009 at the Church in Conference immediately following worship, the Minister Search Committee unanimously and with great excitement moved that the Olin T. Binkley Memorial Baptist Church extend an indefinite call to the Reverend Peter John Bodden Carman to serve as our new Minister. Our recommendation followed a multi-year process of committee and congregation-wide discussions regarding hopes and dreams for the future of Binkley, and where we felt the Spirit moving in our midst. In early 2008, our committee began soliciting applications, reviewing resumes, and interviewing candidates. After months of narrowing down the applicant pool, the committee reached a unanimous decision to move forward with Peter Carman, currently (since 1992) serving as Senior Pastor at Lake Avenue Baptist Church in Rochester, New York. Members of our committee traveled to Rochester to observe Peter s worship leadership and preaching, and Peter came to Chapel Hill to meet individually with Binkley staff, and with leader groups from the Diaconate, Church Council, and the Personnel Relations Committee. Out of 114 resumes, Peter s stood out for many reasons: depth and relevance of experience across all of our criteria, stellar references, religious Convictions, and a personal story that started with growing up in South India and most recently included the welcoming of hundreds of refugees from Burma to Lake Avenue Baptist Church. After a question and answer session following the proposal of the motion at the Church in Conference, the motion from the Search Committee was brought to a vote. The Minister Search Committee is extremely excited to report that the assembled congregation voted to extend the indefinite call to Peter Carman to serve as our Minister, and that Peter has accepted that call. Peter will begin his ministry with us on May 15, We on the Search Committee wish to express our deepest gratitude for all the prayers of the congregation throughout this busy and exciting time in the life of Binkley! Minister Search Committee members: Lori Cahill, Nancy Cheek, Joe Clontz, Wayne Price, Tim Pyatt, Fred Schroeder, Brennetta Simpson, Joe Templeton, Linda Textoris, and Jim Wilde.

For information, please contact Emily Wilson-Hauger at or at (919) WALK for NAMI Our Lord Jesus recognized, engaged and embraced people who were dealing with mental illness. Dale Osborne, sermon February 1, 2009 archived Binkleychurch.org A wonderful opportunity for us to embrace those affected by mental illness is coming up Saturday May 2 nd, 9:00 am. It s a walk for National Association on Mental illness (NAMI) that works to give a voice to families affected by mental illness through education, outreach and advocacy. Please walk even if you do not have a direct connection to mental illness to raise your own awareness and show your support in what Jesus would no doubt consider hugely important to social justice in our age. It s a shame churches have not been involved in the NAMI movement but now is the time to show God s love is meant for all. Sign ups and a table with more information will be in the Narthex March 29 th. Binkley folks are bringing their kids along to in this walk through the campus of Dorothea Dix Hospital. We will carpool starting at 9:00 am at the front door of the church. The actual march starts at 10:00. There will be interesting booths, a speaker, and a caring connection among walkers as we work to wake up the country to one in every four of its citizens that needs our help. Christine Jernigan Heartfelt Thanks to Carol Nobles who is retiring as the director of Meals on Wheels which operates at Binkley. Carol has done stellar work in recruiting volunteers, bringing the office forward technologically and making sure that the program feeds as many community members as possible. Carol and her family (Husband Larry, children Savannah and Nick) are making plans to move from Chapel Hill to Clayton in the near future. We pray God s blessings on them with these changes in their lives. We ll miss you!
