"Interim Words" Changing The World ­ One Life At A Time

It seems these days everyone has a formula for building a better world! `If only people were more generous ­ more kind, if parents could parent better ­ if teachers would teach better - if people would read more books and watch less television.' Everybody has their theory of a better life. Of all the great thinkers, revolutionaries and reformers, none fascinates me more than Jesus of Nazareth. Dozens of stories in the gospel tell of people meeting this man and in that meeting are transformed. This includes the blind, the cripples, the guilty, the oppressed. A few Sundays ago, I spoke of one of those meetings when people bring a friend to Jesus who was hearing and speech impaired. Unlike other accounts where Jesus simply says the

word of healing and it happens, here He seems to use a formula, four steps in fact ­ that brings the man to wholeness. The value of the story is two fold. First it illustrates a depth of compassion that Jesus offers all of us and second it offers a way for us to follow his lead in changing the world - one life at a time. The first thing Jesus does is to take the man `aside from the crowd' (Mark 7:33). Recognizing the man`s need for privacy and some quiet Jesus offers him his full undivided attention. We've all had the experience of speaking to someone, often in a crowd, who constantly is looking over our shoulder, at someone else, or whose mind is obviously elsewhere. What a treat it is to be regarded as valuable ­ like the only one in the room ­ the only one who really matters. continued on page 3 ... ...

BackToChurchSunday BackToChurchSunday ToChurch

On behalf of my colleagues Dianne Rimmer and Steven Law, may I offer our sincere thanks to all those who helped with the success of this recent celebration. Not only did we receive wonderful support from all who participated in the planning and execution of BTC Sunday, but we are grateful to every one in the parish who brought along a friend, a guest, or even a frequently absent spouse, or other family member. After Bishop Bill's great Eucharistic Service, we all repaired to the Auditorium for some lively entertainment. How about those lassies, the "Precious Jewels"? They had everyone's feet tapping to that compelling Gospel-style music in no time. Didn't they just provide all the feel of an old time revival meeting? And then! The Fashion Show! One by one, on came eight ladies of the parish each accompanied by a male escort. They were dressed to the nines as models in a range of lovely garments from the stock of a local consignment retailer coordinated by Kathryn McCallum of Curvaceous Consignments. Kathryn had also provided a number of door prizes drawn by each model. Did we all have a good time or what? And didn't we show our guests that the depth of our Christian faith does not detract from our ability to not only worship with great reverence, but also rise to the occasion and have fun too? All in all, what a wonderfully inspiring morning we were all able to share. Well folks, it will indeed happen again next year. There will be an opportunity to "Come As You Are!" in 2011. Your BTC Committee is now formulating ideas to develop next year's

event and we are confident that it will be an even more exciting opportunity for worship and celebration. To close, please join the Back to Church Sunday Committee in giving thanks to the following.....to those Advisory Board people who worked on the refreshments..... to Cypriana James, mother of the "Precious Jewels"..... to Kathryn McCallum who prepared our models for action..... to the models themselves who, believe me, had a great time strutting their stuff..... to the Altar Guild for acquiring and preparing the red carnations..... to Bishop Bill who gave us encouragement at every turn (not to forget his outstanding homilies).... and to everyone else who contributed to such a joyful event. My heartfelt thanks to Dianne and Steven without whose help I would have been floundering and especially to the Good Lord himself, without who's support the whole affair would have been for naught.

"Interim Words" cont'd The second thing Jesus does is to touch the man`s ears and tongue. He touches him where he hurts. How profoundly therapeutic to have someone recognize our pain. Who can see beyond the mask of our pretentious and point their fingers at the real issue that is troubling us. The third thing Jesus does is to `point up' to God ­ I think ­ saying to the man in a language he can understand "there is a God here and He cares deeply for you." In taking this step Jesus moves the man into a different world - the world of the transcendent, the spiritual. It is telling him that human effort, no matter how good, is not enough to change the world. That until we can be humble enough to recognize our need for the divine, our need for prayer, we're left only with short term solution. Theologian Karl Barth once said; "To fold the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world." The fourth thing Jesus does is to utter a word: `be open'. That's what happens when we look to God in prayer, things start to open up. A closed world suddenly opens its doors to new hope and possibility. Dr. E. Stanley Jones suggests that we live in an open universe ­ where prayer actually partners with the will of God to make that will come about. An open universe is the opposite of a closed universe where fate or some other determinism make no room for change. But ours is an open universe where prayer can disturb and counter the forces of evil that afflict human lives. The story ends with this man now able to hear and speak plainly. His world is profoundly changed. All by someone who loves him deeply, touches his pain and points him in a new exiting direction with a prayer that `begins an uprising against the disorder of the world and connects him to an open universe where all things are possible'. In Christ, +Bishop Bill Hockin Interim Priest-in-Charge

Parish Selection Committee

Although you have been very patient since Canon Greg Physick announced his retirement last December, we are beginning to hear your concerns that the process to find a replacement is taking so long As Paul wrote to the Colossians, "... we have not stopped praying for you and asking God ... that you may have great endurance and patience ...". We do need patience, partly because we are searching for the best possible person we can find to meet our needs and because such an individual is rare. The week of October 18, Bishop George Elliott told us that he has invited over ten clergy to consider Holy Trinity. Only one has responded positively. He is continuing to look and as soon as he has two or more candidates he will be back to us. There is a real shortage of experienced candidates suitable for larger parishes such as ours. We do not know how long this search will take, but it may take some time. Some of us feel abandoned. Others are frustrated at the lack of progress. Still, others are unsettled because the stability that they have felt was theirs at Holy Trinity seems no CELEBRATIONS IN LIFE WEDDINGS We joined in Holy Matrimony Laura Harild & Brian Csinos Andrea Radcliffe & Robin Manning Robyn Stephenson & Morra Roberto Rachel Parravano & Steven Leonienco Barbara Thompson & Keith Madill

longer. Take heart! We are in excellent hands with Bishop Bill Hockin. There has never been such a buzz around here as now when we hear people saying they are actually looking forward to his next sermon. Imagine! Truly, he is a gifted pastor. Think back to Father Dan Graves' last Sunday sermon. In answer to the question, "Do you think that God will work powerfully in this parish?" he answered unequivocally, "... without reservation, I believe God will indeed work powerfully in this community in the next five years. Why? I know it and believe it because I have seen it." We, too, believe it and have seen it. As we say, take heart! Really, the glass is half full, not half empty. We will keep you informed as soon as we have more information.

MUSIC NEWS

Thank you all for your kind support before, during and after my recent surgery. I feel blessed to be part of this loving congregation. A very special thank you to Judy Bradshaw, who with the help of Sandra Kirk kept the music program going during my absence. It is very good to be back at the helm again, with my health restored and that nasty pain gone! We have some special events coming up.

Sunday, December 19, 2010 10:00 a.m. The choir will present the cantata ­ `A New Birth, A New Beginning' ­ by John Purifoy, with Judy Bradshaw at the organ and myself at the piano. Within the cantata, the Sunday School Pageant will be presented. This is an event anticipated by all. Please plan on attending that morning.

To my Friends at Holy Trinity Thornhill

Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the wonderful farewell celebrations and the generous gift (to be applied to the "cottage fund") given on September 19th. It has been a great privilege to have begun and served the first three years of my ordained ministry in the parish of Thornhill. I know that the timing came as a surprise to many and I regret the several loose ends left undone. I give thanks to God for each of you and shall forever treasure the gift of having been one of your priests for a time. I continue to uphold you in my prayers as you discern God's will for the future of the parish in the days

ahead. I know that you are being ably led by Bishop Bill during this interim time. He is both a wonderful pastor and preacher. Exciting times lie ahead, and as our dear friend Canon Greg has so aptly put it, "God already knows who your next incumbent will be." I know that God is faithful and that he will provide a gifted team to lead Holy Trinity as you do the work of building God's kingdom. God bless you all. Fr. Dan Graves [email protected]

Healing and Wellness Ministry

We would like to thank Bishop Bill Hockin for his support to the Healing and Wellness Ministry during his stay with us. The Lay Pastoral Visitors, along with Bishop Bill, are continuing to keep in contact with those who are unable to attend Sunday services. If you know of anyone who you think would appreciate a visit, please let us know. We hope to have another course for lay visitors after the new Incumbent arrives. Services for anointing for healing continue on the third Wednesday and the first Sunday of the month. Prayer Shawls are being knitted by parishioners, and taken to those who are struggling with illness themselves or in their families. Again, please let us know if there is someone who would be uplifted by a visit, and a prayer shawl. On Saturday, November 27, there will be a talk on Alzheimer's Disease given by Andrea Ubell from the Alzheimer's Society of York Region. This is a disease which could affect many of us. The more we can understand the needs of those with Alzheimer's, the better we are able to help.

Holy Trinity Cemetery

A big thank you is extended to everyone who turned out for the cemetery clean-up on September 25. The 16 volunteers were able to fill 34 paper yard waste bags and bundle 28 piles of branches. In addition, since last May, the committee members have faithfully performed weekly clean-up duties to keep our cemetery safe, dignified and welcoming. The Cemetery Committee is continuing to work at the various tasks before us. The recently approved revised by-laws (July 2010) will be delivered shortly to all interment rights holders for whom we have current addresses. Extra copies are available for any other interested parties. A self closing chain link gate will soon be installed at the rear unofficial entrance to the cemetery property. A tree company has been hired to deal with the many stumps left behind when trees have been cut down. These stumps frequently send up new shoots and also create hazards for workers and visitors to our cemetery. Work has begun for our `Conservation and Restoration' binder. Photographs and details of all monuments, their inscriptions and repair history will be included. A big thank you is extended to the Endowment Fund for their recent grant for conservation work in 2011. The committee continues to meet five times a year to deal with cemetery matters.

What's New @ your library

The Library staff sends out a big "Thank you" to the many people who have donated books to the Holy Trinity Library this past year. All of them have been placed in a suitable location, and you will find that many of them have been catalogued and are now on the shelves, ready to be borrowed. Although any parishioner is welcome to borrow books, please consider registering as a library borrower so that the library staff can talk to you about your interests and alert you to new books or books that you might not have considered borrowing. It is easy to sign out a book. Simply print your name and phone number and the date on the card in the pocket at the back of the book. Place the card in the "card box" on the library shelf and take a yellow "date due" card from the box. This will remind you when your book is due back (in three weeks) and you can even use it as a book mark. To return a book, simply place it in the returns box. I look forward to helping you find a book that you will enjoy. Barbara Lespérance Librarian There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country. "Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal clerk. "Only the Ten Commandments." answered the lady.

ANGLICAN CHURCH WOMEN NEWS

IMAGINE ­ no ACW hosted receptions and coffee hours, Festival of Christmas, Rummage Sales ... ... no donations to our women and children's outreach ($15,000 in 2009), no donation to the Church ($7,000 in 2009), no Ingathering Service, and no ACW Potluck AGM with special speakers. I am afraid that this could happen IF we do not find a Vice President for January 2011 in order to have this person become President in 2012. We need to continue the work of these dedicated women. We are one of the largest ACW groups in the Diocese. This is a wonderful group of ladies with which to work. I feel it is a privilege to be in this position. IF you think you may be interested in this position, please call me at 905 881 0761. On a positive note we had a very successful Fall Rummage Sale netting approximately $4,900. Well done all women and men. All your work was much appreciated. And to our student volunteers we are very grateful. We are getting ready for our Festival of Christmas - Saturday November 20, 2010 ­ come to lunch. Tickets are $10 for the luncheon and we are selling our Raffle Tickets as well. Beautiful prizes are being raffled including the handmade quilt done by our Quilters which is the main prize. We are pleased to have Sister Sue from SSJD as our Homilist at our Ingathering service onJanuary 23, 2011. For our AGM Potluck Dinner on January 12, 2011, our own Marilyn Olivares is bringing us her slides from her trip with `Sleeping Children Around the World'. This organization provides bed kits for children. Remember that ALL Women in the Parish are Anglican Church Women. We welcome all of you. The ACW purpose is to "assist on enabling women's witness and ministry through Worship, Learning and Service". We do this in many ways. Bless you all. Jean Glionna President

Winifred Marsh ­ a Woman of Grace

As a new bride, Winifred Petchey Marsh arrived in Eskimo Point, 350 miles north of Churchill. Her husband the Rev. Donald Marsh, later Bishop of the Arctic, had been living in the North for seven years. She lived in the Arctic for the next 12 years, raising her children. While there she was often nurse, midwife, and teacher. She learned Inuktitut and was able to teach the children in their

9

language. As an artist, Win painted watercolours of the Inuit, their homes and their life. She knew that the lifestyle she was seeing would soon disappear. One of her paintings was given to Prince Charles and Princess Diana as a wedding gift. Her book, `People of the Willow', is a collection of some of the paintings. Win met the Queen in Ottawa on the occasion of the Queen's Silver Jubilee, and presented her with a copy of `People of the Willow'. continued on page 10 ...

Winifred Marsh cont'd Although the book is no longer in print, I was able to find a copy in the library in Pond Inlet on a recent trip to the Arctic. Later Win compiled two books, `Echoes of the Frozen North' and `Echoes Into Tomorrow', from the diaries of Bishop Marsh. Bishop Donald and Win Marsh moved to Thornhill in the 1960s and Win became active at Holy Trinity. When the Women's Auxiliary and Mothers' Union came together to form Anglican Church Women in 1967, Win composed the ACW Prayer we still use today.

Send us forth with joy and confidence to do your will. This we ask in your name, Jesus our Lord and Savior. If you visit Holy Trinity Church Cemetery, you will see the grave marker for Donald and Winifred Marsh. Beside it is a stone donated by the Inuit, and inscribed in Inuktitut. They earned the respect and love of the Inuit people, whom they served for many years. Linda Robertson

OUTREACH

Richmond Hill Food Bank & All Saints Community Kitchen

As of October 31, there have been 26 deliveries of canned/packaged food and personal use items to All Saints and the Richmond Hill Food Bank. There also have been seven deliveries of adult apparel to All Saints clothing depot. Your contributions are appreciated by the staff at both locations. THANK YOU! for your continued interest and support. In late March, just prior to Passover, thanks to Grodzinski Bakery, there were two deliveries of bread, bagels, cakes and pies to Eva's Place Youth Centre on Leslie Street, North York. Peter Paterson

Christian Salvage Mission

There is now a box on a top shelf in the Library, next to the Returns box, for donations to the Christian Salvage Mission. The CSM collects Bibles and other Christian books and materials and distributes them, free of charge, to Christian workers, Pastors and Bible students in third world countries. Most of the work is carried out by volunteers. The mission's policy is not to incur debt, so they raise funds to cover the cost of shipping the materials overseas. One of the ways they do this is to collect cancelled and mint condition postage stamps, sell them, and use the proceeds to fund shipping costs. You can help by donating new and used Bibles, concordances, daily devotionals, hymn books with music, even copies of magazines such as Daily Bread, as well as postage stamps. The stamps must be attached to the envelope with a ¼ inch border of paper around the stamp and the perforations must be intact. There is an envelope in the CSM box for stamps. Thank you for your donations to this worthy cause.

Christmas Assistance Program

Each year the Thornhill Ministerial Association sponsors a program of Christmas assistance to Thornhill's most needy families. The Christmas Assistance Committee, composed of representatives from Thornhill Baptist, Presbyterian and United Churches as well as Holy Trinity Anglican has selected December 18 as the delivery date for hampers this year. We ask that you keep an eye out for communications later in November and early December when we will be asking for volunteers to help with the program. Some of you prefer to make monetary donations rather than non-perishable food. We would ask that cash or cheques payable to Holy Trinity designated as "Christmas Assistance" be forwarded to the church office no later than Friday December 3rd. Thank you. Maurice Corbett and Linda Gould Holy Trinity Representatives

from the

From Trinity News, January 1982 Lions Dinners Many of the new women in the parish have asked "What are the Lions Dinners? Is there a small way in which I can help?" The Lions Club of Thornhill is a very community-minded organization who have done much to improve life here in Thornhill. For several years now they have held their dinner meetings in our parish hall on the first and third Mondays of each month. The ACW cater to these dinners (Olive St. John in charge) and there are many ways in which one can help on an occasional basis, say once a month or even just once or twice during the year. Vegetable preparation is done at about 1:00 or 1:30 in the afternoon and takes about one hour or less. Table setting at 4:00 p.m. can be accomplished in about half an hour. Predinner etc. is needed from 5:45 to 8:00 p.m. and dinner is provided for anyone who comes directly from work to help. The waitresses arrive at 6:30 and the dishwashers at 6:45. Everyone is finished and on her way by 8:00 to 8:30. Would you be able to give some help? We need people who could come starting now or any month through to June. This is an excellent fund raising effort on the part of ACW and, at the same time, we are serving a fine group of gentlemen who add much to this community."

From the Markham Economist and Sun 1925. Memorial Window Trinity Anglican Church, Thornhill, was the scene of a remarkable gathering on Saturday afternoon when a memorial window was dedicated, given by the descendants of Benjamin Thorne, after whom the village was named, and the principal founder of the church. The ceremony was attended only by immediate relatives, and the window was unveiled by Barbara Thorne, the youngest great-grandchild present. Allan O. Thorne, president of the North Toronto Ratepayers' Association, and Kenneth P. Thorne are grandsons of the founder of the village. Richard Thorne, of Sheldrake Boulevard, Toronto, now in his 85th year, is his son. Benjamin Thorne, who was an Englishman, settled in Thornilll about 120 years ago and built and conducted a large tannery, saw mill, grist mill and general store (where Thornhill Golf and Country Club now is). When a young man in his teens, the late H.R. Corson clerked for several years in Mr. Thorne's store and was a member of the choir of this old church.

The stained glass window second from the Chapel Altar on the north side is the memorial to Benjamin Thorne. On this beautiful window are the words - "Lord Now Lettest Thy Servant Depart in Peace According to Thy Word". And at the bottom - "To the Glory of God and in Memory of Benjamin Thorne borne Sherborne Dorset 1794 died Thornhill July 2nd 1848, and his wife Anna Maria Thorne".

From the Church Office

Life in church land continues with or without a Rector. Thankfully Bishop Bill brought calm and he's not a `high maintenance' clergy. Big cheers and thank you to our faithful admin/office volunteers. They faithfully come every week to fold Sunday bulletins; some prefer to fold or affix labels at home, many come to collate, staple and insert Trinity News and/or other mailing projects; and another group deliver this very piece you are reading directly to your mailbox. Without their help I would be camping out on Brooke St.

Garden Committee News

We had a very successful growing season that included "loosing the floodlights in the main church garden" for a few weeks due to overgrowth. Peter Paterson personally decided to get all the dandelions out of the church lawns in May/June. For his efforts he won the "Weed Killer" award for 2010 (a dixie cup with a dandelion in it). There were a few perennial replacements including the signature tree in the elevator garden. This one was costly but that occur naturally in garden life. We thank the Eva Rea Fund committee for their acceptance of our request for a grant out of the Eva Rea Income Fund. This grant financed the elevator garden tree plus money for "winterscape" in the urns for the next two years. The Gardener of the Week had a few volunteers (watering and weeding the gardens) and we thank them for their efforts. Finally we are looking for new members for our committee. Beautification of our church property outweighs gardening experience so give us a call. Members Sarla Knowles Clare Moore Marilyn Olivares Gillian Parente
