1 THE FLAME HOLY TRINITY GREEK ORTHODOX CATHEDRAL Monthly Newsletter Volume 5, Issues 2 and 3 February and March 2015 BEING BREAD By Father George Wilson I recently had the wonderful blessing of being in the company of our Metropolitan Alexios, more than half of the priests of our Metropolis, and almost all of the deacons serving in the Metropolis. I was at the Diakonia Retreat Center in Salem, South Carolina, for the annual Lenten Clergy Retreat. His Eminence also wanted to do the groundbreaking for his new Panagia chapel at the center. The temperature was sub-freezing, so we did not go out to the building site but rather celebrated an Aghiasmos service in the existing tiny chapel on the Retreat Center s grounds. Also present was His Grace Bishop Gregory of the American Carpatho-Russian Diocese, your former proistamenos (Father Grigorios Tatsis), who sends his blessings and regards to all. The retreat leader was Deacon Dr. Stephen Muse, a pastoral counselor in Columbus, Georgia. He highlighted some of the personal stories from his book Being Bread. One of the reviewers of the book wrote: Muse adds new depths to a sentence most of us pray at least daily, Give us this day our daily bread. As we have now just entered the season of Great Lent, perhaps we might meditate on the title of this book Being Bread and pray about how this might allow us to grow spiritually during Lent. The image of bread is central in our worship celebrations. The faithful people provide the offering bread to be mystically transformed into the Body of Christ. With this example we see Christ as bread - the Bread of Life. As Christians we are encouraged to become more like Christ, so by using the metaphoric image of bread as Christ perhaps we may say that being bread would be akin to being Christ-like. Our Lord Jesus lived his whole earthly life in communication with God the Father. Through prayer He was very aware what God s Will was for His life. As we too seek to be in communication with our Father: God, I pray that we all might discover what God s Will is for us, and then I pray that we have the courage to do that Will. As Orthodox Christians this is a central understanding of our life in Christ. Continued on next page 1200 ROBERT E.

2 So, as we endeavor to live our life Being Bread, we shall see ourselves entering into prayer with our creator, God, more regularly; we shall see ourselves choosing to learn more about the life of our Lord through our personal regular Bible reading; we shall see ourselves reaching out to our brothers and sisters, who are in need of assistance physically, financially, and spiritually! Ultimately, Being Bread is being Christ to others as we are each called to fulfill the mission of love, mercy, and compassion to the world, or at least our little corner of the world. As we attend the Divine Liturgy each Sunday, I pray that we each might pray about how we might be empowered by receiving the Bread of Life though hearing His Word and receiving Holy Communion. As we become one with Christ through the gift of Holy Communion, may we walk away from the Liturgy strengthened to reach out in the Name of our Lord, to be Christ to others: to be the vessel through which they too might receive their Daily Bread!

A shoe is removed each week. Symbolically, Miss Sarakosti has no mouth for fasting, crossed hands for prayer and piety, and a foot for each Sunday. The Lenten journey begins on Clean Monday when the faithful fast for forty days during the period called sarakosti. This is derived from the time that Christ fasted in the desert after His baptism.

3 ORTHODOXY AND THE MONTESSORI METHOD Billie Andersson, PhD In a world where celebrity status is commonly confused with being a hero, how do we help children establish their own sense of virtue and morality? In the Orthodox Church we seek to address this challenge by instilling a sense of faith and order in our children by calling upon the long standing traditions of orthodoxy. The Montessori Method, a century-old philosophy of education, shares with the Orthodox Church a respect for order, a hope for peace, and a system of values rooted in respect for every human being. After witnessing the effects of two world wars, Dr. Maria Tecla Artemesia Montessori famously said, Establishing lasting peace is the work of education. Of course, this is also the work of religions around the world. But, informed by her survival of world wars and her in depth studies of education, Dr. Montessori developed a firm belief that children are taught self-discipline and problem solving skills through self-directed, engaged learning. Dr. Montessori believed that children learn wisdom, virtue, courage, honesty, and character by hearing, reading, and telling stories that model these virtues. Stories about the human condition give meaning to our own existence. Putting theory into practice, the students of Cathedral Montessori hear many such stories during our time spent at Chapel. The Montessori Method is focused on the whole child physically, spiritually, emotionally and academically. After thorough research of the study of character virtues and their modeling, the Montessori program developed lessons regarding grace, courtesy, and conflict resolution. Importantly, the Montessori Curriculum provides a challenging educational environment, one that encourages each child to realize his or her highest potential. In our class room children develop a love of learning and a respect for self, others, and the global community. Through education we seek to produce responsible and respectful citizens, who may affect positive changes in the world. A major goal of the Montessori method is to provide children support in understanding their unique and important place in society. Montessori teaching provides children with the necessary environment and tools to become introspective, compassionate, and hopeful. As a matter of practice, conflict resolution is taught in our class room in the peace corner, a designated area where peaceful habits and attitudes are fostered. Here, we create an environment of acceptance where children learn to respect each other s differences and work harmoniously to meet each other s needs. 10 Dr. Montessori believed that faith resides in every human being. Kindness, independence, openmindedness, and moral duty are tenants shared by Orthodoxy and the Montessori Method. At Cathedral Montessori, we foster an environment that celebrates the complementary philosophies and beliefs of the Church and the Montessori curriculum.
4 MESSAGE ON STEWARDSHIP FROM THE PARISH COUNCIL PRESIDENT Dear Holy Trinity Parishioners: Good Stewardship is the realization that God has blessed you and expects you to bless others with the same gifts. It is the acknowledgment of His influence and power in your life. It is thanking Him through His Church for everything. Rooted in the Scriptures, the parables of Christ, and the writings of the Church Fathers, Stewardship is nothing less than everything that God expects from you. It is your time, talent, and treasures your whole being offered to God in grateful thanksgiving. In other words we should give to God wholeheartedly. When Christ says that He can find what is most valuable to you (your treasure) by where your heart is, we should ask ourselves the following questions, Where is my heart? For what am I living? What am I teaching the next generation with my actions? What am I thinking while at work or at home? At least in part, God expects the answer to be HIM! We should all see our Church not as a place that serves us but as the place that we serve. It is not payment for services rendered but Stewardship for the ministry of God. How much is that worth to you? How much needs to be done here and throughout the world to carry out the message of the Gospel? This is a task given to us by Christ, a task that He entrusts to all of us. In Matthew 6:19, Jesus instructs us, "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal..." Often in life we pursue and collect those things that do not last. We must ask, "One hundred years from now, where will our possessions be?" Our greatest blessing is our family. As Orthodox Christians we are called to be stewards of this great gift. If we are faithful to this calling, perhaps our Lord will say to us as he did to the faithful steward, "Well done good and faithful steward." Matthew 25:23 As an officer of the Church for the past three years, I have been inspired by many wonderful people, who explained to me why they give and what it personally means to them. I have also heard from many good people why they do not give. Usually, the latter group is upset with how something was handled or that someone or some group hurt their feelings. I ask everyone to remember that life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. What I have learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults and choosing to celebrate each other s differences is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting community. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right and forgive and have compassion for the ones who do not. But, do not forget what is most important and why we are here at Church. Mother Teresa said it best, For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway. ADOPT A DAY PROGRAM As many of you are well aware, to have basic services such as a Priest, property insurance, utilities, salaries, and Archdiocese assessment, our Church annually needs over $365,000. To this end, the current Board of Trustees will continue to enthusiastically support the Adopt-A-Day" and Adopt-Half-A-Day campaign that netted us a record Stewardship 2014 year but well short of the actually $365,000 goal. For those that are unfamiliar with this program, we encourage each steward of the Church to designate a specific calendar date for his or her annual contribution in increments of $1,000 for a full day or $500 for a half day. The commemorative options are endless anniversaries, birthdays, memorials, etc. and adoptions may be made publicly or anonymously. To chart the selection process and to keep everyone updated on our progress and what days still need to be adopted, boards will be placed in the Hellenic Cultural Center and will be marked with either a donor s name or the word anonymous on each chosen day. Please consider supporting this program. The financial stability and future subsistence of our Holy Trinity Cathedral is in the balance. Your generosity is the difference between just getting by versus leaving our children and grandchildren with a thriving community. In 2 Corinthians 9:7 we read, Each person should give what he/she has decided in his/her heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. We can all give back something for all the blessings we have been given. I am hopeful that everyone will consider a minimum of at least $10 a week. 4 Faithfully yours, Constandinos John Vennis Parish Council President DONATION EXAMPLES $10 per week = $520 per year $20 per week = $1,040 per year $50 per week = $2,600 per year $100 per week = $5,200 per year $200 per week = $10,400 per year
5 ΜΕΤΑΦΡΑΣΗ Αγαπητοί ενορήτες της Αγίας Τριάδας: Η οικονοµική συνεισφορά στην φροντίδα της εκκλησίας ταυτίζεται µε την αποδοχή του γεγονότος ότι ο Θεός σας έχει ευλογήσει και αναµένει να ευλογήσετε και εσείς άλλους µε τα ίδια δώρα. Πρόκειται για την αναγνώριση της επίδρασης και ισχύς του Θεού στη ζωή σας. Προκειται για εκδήλωση ευγνωµοσύνης διαµέσου της εκκλησίας για όλα όσα ο Θεός προσφέρει. Η ανάληψη της φροντίδας της εκκλησίας έχει τη βάση της στις γραφές, στις παραβολές του Ιησού και στα γραπτά κείµενα των Πατέρων της εκκλησίας. Δεν είναι τίποτε παρά όσα ο Θεός αναµένει από εσάς. Είναι ο χρόνος σας, το ταλέντο σας, ό,τι είναι πολύτιµο για σας, όλος σας ο εαυτός προσφερόµενος στο Θεό ως ένδειξη της ευγνωµοσύνης σας προς Αυτόν. Με αυτό τον τρόπο πρέπει να προσφέρουµε στο Θεό: Με όλη την ψυχή µας. Όταν ο Χριστός λέει ότι µπορεί να βρει τι είναι πολύτιµο για σας βλέποντας που είναι αφοσιωµένη η καρδιά σας, πρέπει να αναρρωτηθούµε για τα εξής: Που αφοσιώνεται περισσότερο η καρδιά µου; Για ποιο λόγο ζω; Τι διδάσκω την επόµενη γενιά µε τις πράξεις µου; Τί σκέφτοµαι όταν είµαι στη δουλειά ή στο σπίτι; Ο Θεός αναµένει οι απαντήσεις σας να έχουν Αυτόν ως επίκεντρο, τουλάχιστον µερικώς. Πρέπει να δούµε την εκκλησία σαν ένα τόπο που δεν υπηρετεί εµάς αλλά που εµείς υπηρετούµε. Δεν πρόκειται για την αµοιβή επί παρεχοµένων υπηρεσιών αλλά φροντίδα για τη διακονία του Θεού. Ποσο αξίζει η τελευταία κατά τη γνώµη σας; Τι χρειάζεται να γίνει εδώ και σε όλο τον κόσµο για να διαδοθεί ο λόγος του ευαγγελίου; Αυτή είναι η αποστολή που µας έχει αναθέσει ο Ύψιστος. Στο Κατά Ματθαίου Ευαγγέλιο (6,9) ο Ιησούς συµβουλεύει τα εξής: Μην αποθηκεύετε για τον εαυτό σας τους θησαυρούς της που καταστρέφει η σκουριά και ο σκώρος και που είναι δυνατό να κλαπουν. Συχνά αναζητούµε και συγκεντρώνουµε πράγµατα που δεν έχουν αξία στο χρόνο. Πρέπει να ρωτήσουµε το εξής: Που θα είναι τα πράγµατα που βρίσκονται στην κατοχή µας σε εκατό χρόνια από τώρα; Η µεγαλύτερη ευλογία είναι η οικογένειά µας. Ως Χριστιανοί Ορθόδοξοι καλούµεθα να υπηρετήσουµε αυτό το σηµαντικό δώρο. Και αν είµαστε πιστοί στο κάλεσµα της εκκλησίας, µπορεί ο Κύριος να πεί και σε µας ό,τι είπε και παλαιότερα σέ έναν άλλον πιστό: «Εὖ, δοῦλε ἀγαθὲ καὶ πιστέ, ἐπὶ ὀλίγα ἦς πιστός, ἐπὶ πολλῶν σε καταστήσω.» Υπηρετώντας την εκκλησία ως διοικητικό στέλεχος τα τελευταία τρία χρόνια, εµπνεύστηκα από πολλούς υπέροχους ανθρώπους που µου εξήγησαν γιατί προσφέρουν στην εκκλησία και τι σηµαίνει γι αυτούς προσωπικά. Ακουσα επίσης απο πολύ καλούς ανθρώπους το λόγο για τον οποίον δεν προσφέρουν στην εκκλησία. Οι άνθρωποι αυτοί ανήκουν στην οµάδα αυτών που δυσαρεστήθηκαν µε κάποιο πρόσωπο ή προσωπα ή µε τον τρόπο αντιµετώπισης κάποιων θεµάτων. Αυτόπου µου έχει διδάξει η ζωή είναι ότι το κλειδί για να δηµιουργηθεί µια υγειής, εξελισσόµενη και µε αντοχή στο χρόνο κοινότητα είναι το να αποδεχθούµε τα ελαττώµατα ο ένας του άλλου και το να µας χαροποιούν οι διαφορές µας. Η ζωή είναι πολύ σύντοµη και δεν µας επιτρέπει να ξυπνάµε µετανοιώνοντας για τις πράξεις µας. Ας αγαπάµε και ας συγχωρούµε τους ανθρώπους που µας συµπεριφέρονται σωστά και ας συµπονούµε όσους δεν το κάνουν. Ας µην ξεχνάµε το πιο σηµαντικό, αυτό που τελικά καθορίζει το λόγο που είµαστε στην εκκλησία και που η Μητέρα Τερέζα εκφράζει καλύτερα: «Τελικά ό,τι συµβαίνει, συµβαίνει ανάµεσα σε σένα και το θεό και δεν πρόκειται σε καµιά περίπτωση για υπόθεση ανάµεσα σε σένα και σε αυτούς.» ΠΡΟΓΡΑMMΑ: ΥΙΟΘΕΤΩ ΤΗΝ ΗMΕΡΑ Όπως γνωρίζετε πολλοί από σας για να µπορούν να προσφέρονται βασικές υπηρεσίες όπως το να έχουµε ιερέα και να πληρώνονται η ασφάλεια για το ακίνητο, τα κοινόχρηστα, οι µισθοί υπαλλήλων και η αξιολόγηση της Αρχιεπισκοπής, η εκκλησία χρειάζεται πάνω από $ 365,000. Γι αυτό το λόγο το συµβούλιο της ενορίας θα εξακολουθήσει να υποστηρίζει µε ενθουσιασµό το πρόγραµµα «Υιοθετώ µια Μέρα και Υιοθετώ µισή Μέρα» που κατέληξε να αποφέρει ικανοποιητικά έσοδα το 2014 χωρίς όµως να µας φέρει κοντά στο στόχο µας που ήταν τα 365,000 δολλάρια. Για όσους δεν έχουν ενηµερωθεί σχετικά µε το πρόγραµµα, παροτρύνουµε καθένα που θέλει να υποστηρίξει οικονοµικά την εκκλησία να ορίσει µία ή µισή µέρα. Εκείνη η ηµέρα θα µπορεί να αφιερωθεί σε γενέθλια, επετείους, µνηµόσυνα συνδεδεµένα µε την οικογένειά του ως αντάλλαγµα για την ετήσια συνεισφορά του, επώνυµη ή ανώνυµη, που µπορεί να κυµαίνεται από 1000 δολλάρια-όταν υιοθετείται µια µέρα-ως 500 δολλάρια όταν υιοθετείται µισή µέρα. Για να υπάρχει συνεχής ενηµέρωση σχετικά µε την πρόοδο του προγράµµατος και µε το ποιες µέρες είναι ακόµα διαθέσιµες προς υιοθεσία αλλά και για να χαρτογραφηθεί η διαδικασία επιλογής θα αναρτηθεί πίνακας στο Ελληνικό Πολιτιστικό Κέντρο. Στον πίνακα θα σηµειωθεί το όνοµα του δωρητή ή η λέξη ανώνυµος δίπλα στην επιλεγµένη µέρα. Καλέιστε να υποστηρίξετε το πρόγραµµα µια που η οικονοµική σταθερότητα και η υπόσταση του Καθεδρικού ναού της Αγίας Τριάδας βρίσκονται σε οριακό σηµείο. Η γενναιοδωρία σας θα κάνει τη διαφορά ανάµεσα στο να επιβιώνουµε απλά και στο να παραδώσουµε µια ακµάζουσα κοινότητα στα παιδιά και τα εγγόνια µας. Στην Προς Κορινθίους Επιστολή (9:7) διαβάζουµε: «Ο καθένας ας δίδη σύµφωνα µε την αγαθήν διάθεσιν της καρδίας του, όχι µε λύπην η από ανάγκην. Διότι ο Θεός αγαπά εκείνον, που δίδει µε καλωσύνην και γλυκύτητα. Όλοι µπορούµε να προσφέρουµε σε ανταπόδωση της ευλογίας που λαµβάνουµε. Ελπίζω ότι τα 10 δολλάρια την εβδοµάδα, που είναι η ελάχιστη συνεισφορά, δεν θα αποδειχθεί ποσό δυσβάσταχτο για κανέναν. Με εκτίμηση, Κωνσταντίνος Ιωάννου Βέννης Πρόεδρος της Ελληνικής Ορθόδοξης Κοινότητας ΔΩΡΕΑ ΠΑΡΑΔΕΙΓΜΑΤΑ 10 δολλάρια την εβδομάδα = 520 δολλάρια το χρόνο 20 δολλάρια την εβδομάδα = 1040 δολλάρια το χρόνο 50 δολλάρια την εβδομάδα = 2600 δολλάρια το χρόνο 100 δολλάρια την εβδομάδα = 5200 δολλάρια το χρόνο 200 δολλάρια την εβδομάδα = δολλάρια το χρόνο 5

8 HOPE & JOY ACTIVITIES ABOUND Message from Director Vicki McCallef Dear Holy Trinity Parishioners, I want to thank everyone for the love and support you provided during the various projects undertaken by HOPE & JOY. For those who do not know, HOPE stands for HOLY ORTHODOX PRIMARY EDUCATION, and JOY stands for JUNIOR ORTHODOX YOUTH. All Holy Trinity Cathedral children between the ages of 5 and 11 are automatically members of HOPE & JOY. It is not a club, and there are no membership fees. In the past younger and older siblings were welcomed, as well as parents and grandparents, who love to participate in what we do. Throughout the year the children are engaged in different activities that include making crafts and giving back to the community. I could never accomplish these endeavors without the help of many including my family, the parents and grandparents of the children, Father George and Presbytera Harriet, numerous parishioners who generously donate financial support, and the Educational, Cultural, and Youth Ministries Committee. I extend heartfelt thanks to everyone. Your combined efforts, love, and support enable us to build a better tomorrow for our children today. Sincerely, Vicki Mantikos McCallef, HOPE and JOY Director OPERATION SCHOOL KITS 150TH ANNIVERSARY PORCELAIN CROSSES WORKSHOP LEFT Ellen Dupriest mixed paint for the commemorative porcelain crosses that she donated for this project. Her son Ross Dupriest drew a depiction of The Little Greek Church, which Ellen transferred onto each cross before the children personalized them. Afterward, the crosses were fired in a kiln and returned to each child as a keepsake of the 150 th Anniversary Celebration. RIGHT A close up of the porcelain cross CHRISTMAS IN THE OAKS OUTING 8 LEFT A group photo was taken after the children assembled 100 school kits that were later mailed to International Orthodox Christian Charities.
