Commons Opens, New Summer Service Schedule At St. Timothy's Episcopal

Thursday, June 12, 2014

The new Outdoor Commons at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, 630 Mississippi Ave., Signal Mountain, is ready for use.

Phase 1 of the project has been completed. The hill has been terraced into multiple level areas to make sitting easy and safe. The first outdoor service will be Sunday at 9:15 a.m. This service is an informal, family-centered Rite II Eucharist, where all are invited to dress casually for summer weather and bring beach blankets or lawn chairs for sitting. The new terraces also provide some seating, so a stadium chair would also work.

The service is held outdoors weather permitting. If it rains 12 hours before the service or rain is threatened, the service is held in the nave.

Phase 2 of the project will include the construction of a permanent mountain stone altar, an access ramp and possibly an outdoor sound system.

The 8 a.m. Rite I Eucharist will continue to be offered in the chapel and the chapel will become the location of the 10:30 a.m. Rite II Eucharist for six weeks beginning Sunday. This is a full, Episcopal service with music tailored for a smaller space and congregation. The 10:30 a.m. service will return to the nave on July 27 for the combined service and remain in that space for the rest of the summer.

The summer worship service is as follows:
June 15, 22, 29, July 6, 13, 20: 8 a.m., Rite I, chapel; 9:15 a.m., Rite III, Commons; 10:30 a.m., Rite II, chapel

Steve Ellison: The Money In The Hand

In the middle of Proverbs chapter 17 there is an odd little question.  Verse 16 asks,  “Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom?”  (NIV) The NASU asks it a different way,  “Why is there a price in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom, when he has no sense?”    I look around and I see vast amounts of resources ...

Don't Clog Up The Last Remaining Semi-Unobstructed Route Into Town From North Of The River

The proposal to turn Hixson Pike in Riverview into a more pedestrian friendly street is more than absurd.   Let's be honest. This is the last semi-unobstructed route into town from north of the river, due to I-27 construction and the bike lane/parking lot that is North Market Street.  So, now the businesses in Riverview would like parking on this main artery? ...

Roy Exum: New Orleans Slaps History

It was balmy and relatively quiet on Sunday afternoon in New Orleans. The flowers of spring were in full flush on Canal Street and, as darkness began to cloak the city, no one was aware that a cadre of police snipers was quietly setting up in a hotel parking garage across from the Liberty Place monument. Shortly after 1 a.m. yesterday morning, a number of large trucks rumbled past ... (click for more)
