Pastors Corner
We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities,
like the wind, take us awayYet, O Lord,
you are our Father; we are the clay, and
your are our potter; we are all the work
of your hand. Isaiah 64:6b, 8 - Reading
for 1
st
Sunday in Advent (Nov 30, 2014)
Ferguson continues to be very much on our minds and
hearts. Anxiety mounts as the Grand Jury decision is expected by
mid-November. Clergy are being sent notices from various groups
about how and when to prepare. Newcasters and political pundits
warn that rioting is inevitable. What are we to do?
We are to remember that we are Gods all of us, every
human being. God our potter molds us. As Isaiah says, we are all
the work of Gods hand. We are all precious and equally beloved
in Gods sight. There is no us and them, theres only we,
the people of God.
Perhaps violence will erupt. What can we do? We can re-
fuse to rush to judging and condemning. We can pray for all those
affected by the events in Ferguson. We can pray for a system of
justice that is truly blind to race, gender, and nationality. We can
pray for ears to listen and a heart to understand. We can pray for
peace.
Whenever the Grand Jury decision is made, St. Francis will
be open for prayer. Depending upon the day of the week, we may
gather either at the parish house (210 S. Central Ave.) or at the
Lodge (616 Stockell Dr). An e-mail will be sent, alerting everyone
of the plan.
Fear is a natural human emotion. But ultimately, our faith
quashes it. Because we believe in the power of love, as shown in
Jesus Christ, to transform hopelessness into new possibilities. We
will pray in longing and in love.

Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
Enger tells the story of eleven-year-old Reuben Land, an asthmatic boy who
has reason to believe in miracles. Along with his sister and father,
Reuben finds himself on a cross-country search for his outlaw
older brother who has been controversially charged with murder.
Their journey is touched by serendipity and the kindness of strang-
ers, and its remarkable conclusion show how family, love, and faith
can stand up to the most terrifying of enemies, the most tragic of
fates. (excerpt from www.amazon.com)
Diocesan Convention November 21-22
Representatives from each congregation in the
Diocese of Missouri will meet on Friday, Nov 21 and
Saturday, Nov 22 in Cape Girardeau for Diocesan Con-
vention. St. Francis delegates to Convention -- the peo-
ple who will vote on the business matters are Michael
Booker, Kathleen McDonald, and Pastor Sally. On Fri-
day, Nov 21 Bishop Smith will be ordaining 6 people as
Deacons. Visit www.diocesemo.org to find out more.
Caroling in Eureka November 22
Join us at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov 22 on Central Ave. for
the Eureka tree lighting festivities. As we did last year,
well roam from business to business in downtown Eureka,
caroling as we go. Serenading the patrons and business
owners is fun and much appreciated. Everyone is welcome
to join our wandering troupe. The words to the songs are
provided. Bring your voice and sing in the season.

Media Exchange Discontinued
In the past we have housed books, magazines, and DVDs at the Lodge for
people to peruse and borrow. We do not have the space for this. Please do not drop
off media on Sundays. If you know a fellow parishioner would love to read that
book, give it to her or him. But please, do not leave it at the Lodge.
Nominating Committee Formed
The outgoing Bishops Committee members comprise the nominating com-
mittee for the slate of people who will be voted on to the Bishops Committee at St.
Francis annual meeting on Sunday, January 18, 2015. Our nominating committee
is:
Judy Cody
Bob Champlin
Jack Lauless
If you are interested in serving as a member of the Bishops Committee or as a
Diocesan delegate, talk to Pastor Sally. And if youre asked to serve, please say yes.
Its a great way to see the breadth and depth of Gods work at St. Francis and to
form deeper relationships with members.
Welcome to Our Deacon - Rebecca Barger
Many of you met Rebecca Barger, who visited St. Francis for 10:15 a.m.
worship on Sunday, Oct 26. Rebecca is being ordained to the diaconate at Diocesan
Convention on Nov 21. Bishop Smith is assigning Rebecca to St. Francis, to be
with our community as our Deacon. We dont yet know when Rebecca will begin
here. Please welcome her when she arrives. And watch for an article about Rebecca
in next months Chalice.
Tweeting the Diocese
Beth Felice, the Director of Communications for the Diocese of Missouri, has
asked Pastor Sally to be the voice of @OurEpiscopalMO from Mon., Nov 24
through Sun., Nov 30. What does that mean? It means Sally will be on Twitter,
tweeting the Diocese a handful of times each day.
Beth has asked that the tweets be an intersection of your faith and your day-
to-day life. Since Pastor Sally is not Twitter-savvy, this should prove interesting.
Its a safe bet that prayer is going to figure prominently as Sally ventures into the
world of Twitter.

St. Francis Gives Thanks
Sunday, November 16
th
, the Sunday before Thanksgiving
St. Francis begins our Thanksgiving celebrations by offering thanks to God,
sharing with those in need the fruits of our labor. On Sunday, November 16, parish-
ioners bring up to the altar their offerings for the Eureka Food Pantry instead of put-
ting them in the red wagon. Already at the altar
are the collected scarves, hats, and mittens made
(or bought!) for people who need more warmth
for the winter.
Our Vicar then blesses this collection of
goods and gives thanks to God. On Monday the
clothing will be distributed to St. Marthas Hall,
and Agape House for distribution to those in
need. The grocery items get taken to Eureka
Food Pantry.
Wednesday, November 26
th
, Thanksgiving Eve
7:00 p.m. Eucharist service with interactive sermon. This is quickly becoming
a beloved tradition in our parish as we gather for an intimate, family style Eucharist
to give thanks for all the blessings of our lives. All are invited (and some do!) to
share aloud the things, events, or people we are most grateful for in our lives. Finish
up your pie preparations before 7:00 p.m. and join in. Youll be grateful that you
did.
Note: Most of the time, people from this happy service continue celebrating at Steak
and Shake. Thats fun, too!
Confirmation February 22
Bishop Smith will visit St. Francis on Sunday, February 22. If you are inter-
ested in being confirmed, please talk to Pastor Sally. And dont be
surprised if she talks to you first! Confirmation enables people who
were baptized as infants to avow for themselves the promises made
for them in baptism.
Information about the Episcopal Church is being provided in
Adult Forum from Nov 16 through Dec 7. (Adult Forum occurs
from 11:55 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sundays at 616 Stockell Dr.) These 4 sessions
constitute confirmation classes; the information covered includes Episcopal Church
history, the sacraments, and the Book of Common Prayer.
If you have previously been confirmed in the Episcopal Church you can reaf-
firm your faith. The Bishop will again lay his hands on you, as you reaffirm your
baptismal vows.

Eureka Food
Pantry Needs
Because of your generosity, the
red wagon for the local Food
Pantry continues to be full-to-
overflowing. Many of our
neighbors continue to need assis-
tance getting through each month
with enough food for their fami-
lies. Items that are filling and
nourishing along with fresh foods
that our abundant St. Francis gar-
den could provide in the summer
are primary needs.
However, with the holiday sea-
son upon us and our thoughts turn
to traditional foods, special good-
ies, "comfort foods" in the cold
months......lets also consider
some of the following: canned
pumpkin for
pies, cookie
mixes, choco-
lates, packaged
cookies, cake
mixes, colorful
holiday candies,
etc. And to go with these...... hot
chocolate packages, coffee, teas.
These may be items just not pos-
sible to enjoy while on a tight
budget.
As always, all non-perishable
foods are welcomed and distrib-
uted - from one small can to large
packages. Paper items (tissues,
TP, etc.) and toiletries (soaps,
shampoos, sanitary supplies) are
so helpful as food stamps do not
apply to these. Thank you for
your continued kindness and car-
ing to our community.

tion of each passage.
This is a good and easy way to prepare for
what youll hear at Sunday morning worship.
St. Francis Spiritual Offerings
during the Week
Mondays from 5:30-6:15 p.m. at the
parish house (210 S. Central) we gather for

cis, those who havent joined us yet, those
on our prayer list, the needs of our commu-
nity, and the world. We close each session
at 6:05-6:15 p.m. with New Zealand Night
Prayer.
Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Fridays at 10
a.m. at the Parish House (210 S. Central)
we study the Bible readings appointed for
the upcoming Sunday.
Please join us for these meetings whenever
you can, whether weekly or once in a while.
All are welcome.

Pastoral Care Committee
Weve overheard the most wonderful complaints recently! During coffee hour at
St. Francis, we have complained that the sign-up sheet to help a beloved parish-
ioner has been filled up before we can get to it. What a great problem to have!! Its
reflective of the generosity, kindness and loving care we show to one another.
When a member of St. Francis becomes ill or injured, Pastor Sally
is the first point of contact for St. Francis. She visits and adds
them to our prayers during the Prayers of the People, and during
our weekly prayer group, as well as in individual daily prayers.
Then Sally contacts Paddy Wrob, chair of the Pastoral Care Com-
mittee. They help to coordinate meals, transportation, errand-
running, doctor visits, etc. Paddy can share information about how
often a person might have visitors, whether the patient has ac-
cess to e-mail and cell-phone, etc. Working through Paddy helps
us to give the patient all the help needed without having all of us
call with the same question, but still giving our friend the help
he/she needs.
You can participate whenever you see a sign-up sheet that the
Pastoral Care Committee puts out. If youd like to help this committee organize the
help needed, see Paddy Wrob. OH! And you can always pray.
Kathleen McDonald
Taiz Prayer
From October 2014 through June 2015, Taiz Prayer at the Cathedral will be
offered on the second Sunday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Cathedrals Bofinger
Chapel.

314-374-3290 or email: Franklin.kline@sbcglobal.net.
Veterans Day Prayer
God of all nations, you are our strength and shield. We give you thanks today for
the devotion and courage of all those who have offered military service for this
country. We ask today that you would lift up by your Spirit those who are now at
war; encourage and heal those in hospitals or mending their wounds at home; guard
those in any need or trouble; hold safely in your hands all military families and bring
the returning troops to joyful reunion and tranquil life at home. Give to us, your
people, grateful hearts and a united will to honor these men and women and hold
them always in our love and our prayers until your world is perfected in peace and
all wars cease. Through Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.
The Rev. Dr. Jennifer Phillips

Wi-Fi Coming to Tutor @ The Lodge
Good News! Good News! St. Francis grant proposal to the diocesan project New
Ventures in Community Ministries has been approved! The grant will be awarded at
the Diocesan Convention later this month, but we got a sneak preview from grant
author Jackie Selle and from Pastor Sally in late October. Theres a lot of parish and
community energy around this ministry. {Ed. Note: We rock!} The awarding of this
grant is a wonderful affirmation from the diocese that our tutoring ministry is an im-
portant community service.
Equally important to the tutors and students serv-
ing in the program is that the grant will provide for Wi
-Fi to be installed at the Lodge. Access to the Internet
opens wonderful pathways to learning and teaching.
Currently, any online assistance with schoolwork
comes through the tutors personal hotspot (if any)
and thats expensive for the volunteer tutor. Other
electronic supports have been built into the grant as
well as some essential supplies. Wi-Fi access will allow us to pursue a dream of of-
fering ACT prep support for our students. A school-sponsored ACT prep class costs
a family hundreds of dollars; private classes cost even more. With online capability,
a strong group of tutors, and collaboration with high school counselors, we should
be able to offer a similar service free to students in our area. One St. Francis parent
can hardly wait: Sign my kid up!

harbor and a beacon of the light of Christ. Amen.

Consider This
This season, St. Francis gardeners, working in the Wildwood West Com-
munity Garden with other Y gardeners, produced hundreds of pounds of
fresh produce for the use of the clients of the Eureka Food Pantry and the
Circle of Concern Pantry in Valley Park. Weekly offerings of beets, to-
matoes, cabbage, chard, kale, okra, beans, more tomatoes, radishes, spinach, lettuce
(two crops!) turnips, zucchini, summer squash, parsnips, potatoes, and more toma-
toes were a gift from God to the hungry people of Eureka and Valley Park, and we
got to help produce and share it. What a wonderful shared mission with our local
YMCA! We both are concerned with helping to feed the hungry in our community.
We both want to feed them some of the fresh fruits and vegetables we feed ourselves
in season. We both are grateful for this years sun and rain, which came in near-
perfect amounts for our well-planned crops.
Ive long had dreams of shared ministries between Eureka and St. Francis. In my
dreams they were this beautiful, this God-centered, this healthy, productive and giv-
ing. But you know what? In my dreams they were a lot more fun. What Ive learned
from the reality of shared ministry, Ive learned from the realities of ministry at St.
Francis. I know that when we exercise the fruit of the Spirit* in our work, we are
effective in our labors AND we are joyful in our work, even if it means rainy days,
compost (literal or figurative) and menial work. Next season, I hope to employ the
fruit of the Spirit along with fresh dirt, organic plants and pest remedies that are safe
and non-toxic. That way, I believe, well be growing better food for the hungry and
a smoother path to the Kingdom of God.
*Galatians 5:22 love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Bishops Committee Minutes
Oct. 19, 2014
Members Present: Sally Weaver, vicar; Joe OReilly; Suzanne Jones, treas-
urer; Bob Champlin; Jack Lauless; Dan Card; Jim Eckhart; Jackie Selle, clerk.
Opening Business:
Opening prayer,
Joys and concerns; temperature check
Joe OReilly moved and Jim Eckhart seconded that we accept the minutes of
the September 2014 meeting. The motion passed.
Treasurers Report:
Plate income is somewhat down but not a real concern. With Aundreas raise we
owed her some pay. Bob Champlin moved that we accept the August and Sep-
tember financials pending audit approval. Jack Lauless seconded. The motion
passed.
Vicars Report:
Jim Bowlin and Sally Weaver met with the leadership of the lodge to discuss
capital improvements such as new carpet. The Masons were receptive to mak-
ing some improvements, although they are planning to replace the roof and
not for carpet at this time. However, they are amenable to negotiating shared
costs of new flooring. Jim also mentioned that they have agreed to a right of
first refusal so that if the organization ever decided to sell that we would be
given the opportunity to purchase the property at the same terms.
Annette Carr will present a report about Test Drive Sunday at the next meeting.
Our request for a diocesan grant to fund our tutoring program was approved for
$9000. The formal presentation will be made at the convention in November.
Senior Wardens Report:
The wardens had nothing to report.

Stewardship:
The Rev. Dr. Peter Van Horn shared ideas and approaches about stewardship.
We worked through a process of personal self-reflection about our approaches to
stewardship and beginning to plan for how to move forward with our giving. He
suggested an approach centering around a shared meal with a short speaker and con-
cluding with table hosts sharing what we do and why we do it and then inviting
everyone at the table to join in.

Closing Business:

Next meeting: Our next meeting is November 16. Bob Champlin will provide
lunch and Sue Schmidt will bring dessert.
Jackie Selle, Clerk
Treasurers Commentary September 2014
Our actual plate income is far below budgeted, but our YTD balance is still above
where we planned. Our September and annual expense for Staff and Benefits is sig-
nificantly below where we projected due to an accounting mistake that was made for
nursery salaries. However, this issue has been corrected during early October and
will be reflected on the October financials at the next BC meeting.
