Friday Eblast - Wednesday, November 25, 2020

Happy Thanksgiving to our good shepherds!
 
We are so grateful to all of you for walking through this never-ending wilderness with us. At times when it feels as if we’re just treading water trying to provide some kind of church experience for you, one of you (or many of you) will say the right thing, send the perfect note, make the silly phone call (etc, etc!), and we’re reminded of why we do this work. Even in isolation, we’re in this together; we’re still church. 
 
You’re receiving the Friday eblast a few days early this week since the office will be closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving. The office will reopen Monday morning at 9am. Your staff sends their fondest of Thanksgiving blessings to each and every one of you!
 
Sunday Worship – November 29 – First Sunday in Advent!
We left each other during Lent and here we are in Advent!  We will be livestreaming Sunday at 11am on YouTube. A recording will be made which you can watch later if you can’t join us live. Our YouTube channel is at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLZp-VxXQtNhP9ge-xNluZg. Deanna will send out a link Saturday that will take you straight to our livestream Sunday morning. Join us as we enter into this precious season of Advent.
 
Advent Is Coming!
“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.” Psalm 126
 
What does it look like to live as those who dream? The prophets, the psalmists, John the Baptist, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, Simeon, Anna, the shepherds and the Magi—they were all dreamers. They received, discovered, and responded to God’s dreams for the world.
 
In Advent, we step into the mystery and awe of God’s dreams and pray they shape our reality.
 
This theme is for the dreamers in all of us—those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and for those who have given up on their dreams. It’s for those whose dreams have been crushed and for those who show us that dreams take time.  
 
Join us this Advent as we dream alongside prophets and angels, Mary and the Magi. Join us this Advent and Christmas season as we seek and sow God’s dreams for our world. Stay up to date with our Advent activities on our website (now sporting Advent colors) at goodshepherdreno.org. Take a look!
 
Pick up an Advent Devotional at the Church office anytime Monday-Thursday 9am-2pm.  The booklet includes scripture, poetry, visual art, coloring, written reflections and journaling prompts.
A few traditional style Advent devotion booklets are also available – check with Ciara in the church office. 
 
Evening Prayers with Pr. Scott – Mondays at 5:30 Beginning November 30
For four consecutive Monday evenings at 5:30 during the season of Advent, Pastor Scott will lead a brief Evening Prayer service via Zoom. The services follow a particular order including a psalm or other scripture and guided prayers, during which time there will be opportunity to mention a thanksgiving or concern. The services are intentionally brief, about 20 minutes, as we give thanks as the day closes and darkness gathers and give thanks for the light of the Christ that has come into the world, the light that even death could not overcome. The services will be November 30 and December 7, 14, and 21 at 5:30 p.m.

Friday Eblast - November 20, 2020

A Message from Bishop Mark Holmerud from our Sierra Pacific Synod
 
Four words: It’s not time yet.  
 
It’s not time yet:
+ to return to indoor worship
+ to stop wearing masks
+ to forget physical distancing
+ to ignore science
+ to gather in large groups for Thanksgiving
+ to deny the exponential growth of cases of COVID-19 being diagnosed every day in this country and around the world 
 
Four more words: I know you’re tired.
 
I know you’re tired:
+ of not being able to be with family and friends
+ of not being able to worship together in the sanctuary and sing
+ of not being able to travel
+ of not being able to leave your home
+ of not being able to hold your grandchildren/children/loved ones
+ of hearing admonitions like this from health professionals and bishops
 
Four last words: God is in control (Psalm 23).
 
God is in control:
+ even (and especially) in this time of pandemic (Psalm 91)
+ despite what some see as evidence to the contrary (Psalm 46)
+ through the work of health care workers, clinicians, and epidemiologists (Sirach 38)
+ in the presence of courageous essential workers (Ecclesiastes 3:1-15)
+ as we help God’s reign come near in seeking the well-being of the most vulnerable among us (Matthew 25:31-46)
+ because nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:31-39)
 
Blessings and Peace in this season of Thanksgiving,
Bp. Mark
 
Sunday Worship – November 22
We will be livestreaming Sunday at 11am on YouTube. A recording will be made which you can watch later if you can’t join us live. Our YouTube channel is at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLZp-VxXQtNhP9ge-xNluZg
 
Our Money Story – 2020 Stewardship Campaign
Nov. 22 / RESTORE   As we have practiced remembering, releasing, and reimagining, we conclude our series by focusing on restoration. Ultimately, practicing faithful stewardship heals us as individuals and helps us restore right relationship with one another. In Genesis 33, Jacob and Esau experience a surprising reconciliation after years of strife and estrangement. In the final chapter of John’s gospel, Jesus appears to the disciples and filles their empty fishing nets. Even after death, Jesus restores our hope and provides an abundant feast. 

By this time, you have probably received your invitation in the mail to make a 2021 Estimate of Giving to Good Shepherd. If you would like to complete your pledge card digitally, you may do so from our website at https://www.goodshepherdreno.org/2021-estimate-of-giving.

Scott would be happy to schedule time to help you work through these documents.  Feel free to email him at PrScott@goodshepherdreno.org or call the office at 329.0696.

Friday Eblast - November 13, 2020

Greetings on this blustery Friday the 13th!
 
Thank you and Congratulations to Deanna Gaunt
Now that the surprise is over, we can publicly say happy 30th anniversary at Good Shepherd to Deanna Gaunt, Director of Worship and Finance. Deanna has worn many hats over her 30 years at Good Shepherd (every position possible including preaching a Sunday or two).  Aren’t we blessed beyond measure to have her at Good Shepherd!  Congratulations Deanna on this amazing milestone.

Blanket and Jacket Collection for the Homeless – ends Thursday, November 19
We are currently collecting new and gently used and clean blankets and jackets for Catholic Charities to give to the homeless. We have a bin located in front of the church office that you can safely place your items in. Office hours are Monday -Thursday 9am-2pm for you to drop off your donations. Please do NOT bring anything other than blankets and jackets. If you have any questions, please email stephanie@goodshepherdreno.org
 
Our Money Story – 2020 Stewardship Campaign
Nov. 15  / REIMAGINE:  Scripture calls us to reimagine a world where our social and economic systems are not built to disparage or impoverish, but instead to provide for and benefit all. This week we revisit the story of the widow’s mite, a scripture that begs for reimagination and reinterpretation from the harmful ways it has been used.  Instead of commending the widow’s giving practices, perhaps Jesus is condemning the economic system that created her poverty.  The Jewish practice of the Jubilee year invites us to imagine leaving the edge of the harvest for the poor and immigrant to reap; in the fiftieth year, the harvest is shared and disparities are rebalanced.  In light of these stories in scripture, we are called to reimagine our own money stories. 
 
Mentoring with Big Brothers Big Sisters 
During the worship service November 8, Good Shepherd member Sally Odegaard talked with evident joy about the relationship she has with her "Little," as a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters. If you'd like to learn more about how you can make a difference and how you, too, might be changed, you may contact Sally at sallyode@gmail.com or (775) 622-2462 or visit the Big Brothers Big Sisters website at bbbsnn.org.

Our Money Story – 2020 Stewardship Campaign

Nov. 1 / REMEMBER:  We began our series last week by remembering—by remembering those “saints” who have touched our lives. In a video reflection, member Stan Booth remembered family members who set an example of faith for him. Remembering connects us with people who have been important to us. In the reading from Exodus, we remembered how God was the one who heard the Israelites, delivered them from slavery, and continued to provide for them. We remember that the people complained in the wilderness but were met with manna. We remember God’s steadfast relationship with us throughout time and trials. As we lament, we also remember God as the one who hears and responds. Even in stories of desperation, we are gifted with God’s provision. 

 
Nov. 8 / RELEASE:  This week, we practice releasing shame, anxiety, guilt, greed, or anything that keeps us from freedom and wholeness.  We release the elements of our money story that prevent us from fully living into God’s story.  In Matthew, we see a man grieved to let go of his wealth.  In Deuteronomy, we find the radical social mandate of cancelled debts, a communal release that is practiced for the good of all.  Releasing is a spiritual practice that frees us from ourselves and liberates others.
 
November Shared Harvest
November Shared Harvest will be assembled November 22. You can drop off your donations at the Church Office on Mondays between 9am and 4:30pm or Tuesday through Thursday between 9am and 2pm until November 19. We will have the bin outside the Office so you can donate safely. Our shopping list for November includes:

Blanket and Jacket Collection for the Homeless – November 2 – November 19
Unfortunately, we have learned that local homeless warming shelters aren’t able to open this winter because of Covid-19. We all know how cold it can be in Reno (how cold it has already gotten overnight) and this is devastating to the homeless population in our area. Catholic Charities is responding by collecting warm blankets and jackets to give to folks in need this winter. As you are doing your fall cleaning, maybe you have some sitting around that you would like to donate. Good Shepherd will put a collection bin in front of the office doors Monday -Thursday 9am-2pm for you to drop off your donations. We will deliver them to Catholic Charities for you. Please make sure you wash the blankets and jackets before bringing them to Good Shepherd. If you have any questions, please email stephanie@goodshepherdreno.org

An Invitation from Our Synod to Pray Together Before and/or After the Election
In November, the people of the United States will elect a president and others to public office. This election occurs at a time of change in our national and church life, a time when the Holy Spirit is at work in mysterious ways, and a time when many of our relationships are being changed and challenged. This election occurs in a time of global pandemic, racial injustice, economic hardship, sickness, suffering, loss and death. For many, this election also occurs in a time of great divisions between family, friends and neighbors. These divisions can seem deep, wide and potentially injurious to our democracy and our sense of community.
 
As people of faith, claimed by Jesus, we believe that the role of the church is to support and pray for the wellbeing of the world, for wise leaders to be raised up, and no matter what the outcome that we will be given the gift of “peace that passes all understanding that guards our hearts and minds through Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)
 
Region 2 bishops and leaders – the Sierra Pacific, Pacifica, Southwest California, Rocky Mountain and Grand Canyon Synods of the ELCA – invite all who wish to gather for a time of prayer and reflection to join us as we pray for our nation, for those seeking office, for God’s beloved community, and for our rostered ministers as they seek to lead in their specific contexts during these conflicted times.
 
These livestream gatherings will be: 
 
THANK YOU Landscape Cleanup Helpers!  Special Thanks to Mary & Pat McGrath!
This past Saturday, we had 10-15 hardworking gardeners cleaning up our church property in the glorious fall weather. We completely filled our trash dumpster with bags of leaves and debris; we trimmed bushes, dug out dead ones, swept, washed and dusted. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped. A special thanks to Pat & Mary McGrath for taking on the project of picking out new plants for the area by the main entrance that has looked quite awful for the last year or so. That space is now beautifully planted and arranged thanks to Mary & Pat!  If you need to get outside for a few minutes, come on down and take a look!
 
Yoga (not yet) at Good Shepherd
I am testing the “groups feature” of our new website, and our first group is for yoga. I will be adding some short yoga videos (including chair yoga) to our group for viewing at your convenience. If you haven’t been practiced yoga with me before but you’d like to try some stretching from the comfort of your home before we’re able to practice in person again, please email me at maribeth@goodshepherdreno.org. You’ll receive an invitation to create a password for our website. After you do that, I can add you to our yoga group.
 
2nd Mile Offering 
This month’s 2nd Mile Offering benefits Cal Lutheran University.  You can mail in a check for 2nd Mile anytime during the month or drop it off in the mail slot at the church office.  Please write 2nd Mile on the memo line.

The peace of the Lord be with you all!
