Love thee more dearly,
Follow thee more nearly,

BorschFrederick Houk Borsch (born September 13, 1935) was the Episcopal Bishop of Los Angeles from 1988 to 2002, then served as interim dean of the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale University and Chair of Anglican studies at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. Remembered particularly for the development of Spanish-speaking congregations, the founding of the Episcopal Urban Intern Program (Episcopal Service Corps), his leadership in environmental stewardship, the building of the Cathedral Center of St. Paul, and advocacy for poverty-wage workers and the living wage while bishop in Los Angeles, he also served for twelve years as the Chair of the House of Bishop’s Theology Committee and as a member of the design and steering teams for the 1988 and 1998 Lambeth Conferences, chairing the section “Called to be a Faithful Church in a Plural World” in 1998.  Working with the Standing Commission on Human Affairs, he helped the General Convention of 1994 to include in the church's canons sexual orientation in the non-discriminatory clauses for ordination.

A Worship, Music & Arts event:

Saturday, May 11th at 10:30am.
Americans Who Tell the Truth
Portraits by Robert Shetterly

Martin de Porres Center, 2330 Airport Dr., Columbus, OH 43219.

The de Porres Center director and the exhibit's curator Dr. Christina Butler, will host us and offer brief commentary on the show. Following this we will share in a simple prayer service at 11:15 a.m. marking Ascension Day. This worship will be in the award-winning chapel of the Dominican Sisters of Peace, next door to the Martin de Porres Center.

Cincinnati-born artist Rob Shetterly began painting a series of portraits in 2002 as a way of channeling his anger and grief after 9/11. Ten years later, he has far surpassed his goal of painting 50 portraits, now traveling the country to engage citizens in every state who are determined to solve issues of social injustice. Featured will be 20 portraits of courageous Americans— including that of OSU law professor Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow.


We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time – Amelia Lewis, Katherine Hope Jones, Cynthia Callaghan, John Austen, Sr., Patricia Caldwell,  Debbie Smith, Elijah Todd,  Michael McKinley, Bob Park  and others whom we name silently or aloud.
We pray for Seaman Kristy Olmstead, Captain Andrew Saik, Capt. Brian Smith, Cynthia Epler, Jordan Sellman, Ted Abad, Matt Schumann, Commander Scott Whaley, Specialist Michael A. Martin, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
We remember all who work for peace around the world, especially in Nigeria, Syria, Egypt, Iran & Israel, and Afghanistan.
During these days of self-examination and repentance, we renew our commitments to serve the poorest in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at the In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
Birthdays:  Caroline Van Deusen, George Umezinwa, Sharon Ferguson.
Altar Decorations today are given to the Glory of God and in Memory of Sharon E. Phillips.
We remember Margie Kay, for whom the Burial office was said on Thursday.
