    I look forward to returning to Epiphany in November after being away for the last two months. One of the things I am looking forward to is providing singing opportunities for our younger members.

    November marks the return of our chorister program. Anyone in grades 3 through 12 is welcome to join us as a chorister. We rehearse on Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30pm and sing with the adults one to two Sundays a month. Thursday rehearsals are followed by dinner at 6:30pm where parents and siblings are encourage to join us.

    High school singers are invited to try something new this year. We are planning a few Sundays during the year that we will sing an anthem for worship. The first of these is December 3rd, the first Sunday of Advent. Leading up the that day, we will have a short 30 minute rehearsal on November 12, 19, and 26 after worship from 11:30am until noon.

    Elementary school singers will begin rehearsals for the Christmas Pageant in December. Watch for details from Carolyn about when and where. After the first of the year, plans are in the works to gather on Sundays after church for some time to sing together. Keep your eyes open for details.

    If you have questions, or are interested in any of these opportunities please send me an email at cbenner@3crowns.org .

    Plans are well underway for Epiphany’s 2018 mission to Haiti that is scheduled for March 3–10, 2018. Would you like to participate in the next Haiti Mission by sewing cloth bags? A generous supply of fabric and sample sewing directions are available on the lower level, Higgins Formation Wing, in room 4. The directions are provided as a guide, not as rigid instructions. Take the stairs in the Hadley Hall entrance way. You will soon reach Room 4 in the lower hallway.

    Over the past five years, the many Haiti bag sewers have created  approximately 3,000 bags for the patients that have been seen by Epiphany's mission teams.  We like to sew bags with colorful prints, plaids, or graphic designs. The bags are used to hold the medicines and vitamins that are given to families. These bags are appreciated for their immediate usefulness and are cherished as an attractive item that can be used over and over again.

    For more information and any questions, contact Jan Conrod at 617.489.1247.

    The Adult Formation theme for this year is that of discipleship. What does it mean to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ? Our program will include theological, spiritual, and practical considerations of Christian discipleship. Our underlying assumption will be the individual commitment to a personal identity as a disciple of Christ. Indeed, our baptismal vows commit us to this path worthy of God created creatures who are made in the image of that loving God.

    We will examine the theological groundwork. We will share corporate worship and prayer – central to any notion of Christian discipleship. We will support discernment and engagement in an individual’s personal ministry and care for the reflection on that ministry.

    It looks to be an exciting program and we look forward to your participation in all its facets. Join us Sundays from 11:15am-12:15pm in Hadley Hall.

    Every Thursday at 9:00am Contemplative Prayer will be offered in the Chapel. This a half hour service with candlelight and a good bit of silence. Celtic prayers will be used to center us and reflect upon. All are welcome.

    One of life's lessons is to tell our story, not to tell others’ stories. It’s an essential way to live. But there’s an exception to this rule, at least for me at this moment, and it has to do with our treasurer, Rick Marks. Rick was diagnosed with ALS last October, and he’s currently hiking the Appalachian Trail (along with several others from the Parish of the Epiphany). Rick is humble, and he really wants the people around him to remain positive. His story, at least as I’ve heard it, inspires my faith, and makes me want to share it with everybody I meet. Rick has created a blog about his hike. In addition to Rick’s hike, there are several others in our Parish bicycling from Boston College to New Haven, Connecticut, to raise money for ALS research; they’re doing this because of our friend Rick. There are many ways to be a Christian community, and Jesus himself never gave us a play-by-play book. What he said was, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” You can read Rick’s blog and see the photographs here:
