My Tithe & Giving
Mi Diezmo & Dádivas Caritativas
We are reminded that the Episcopal minimal
standard for giving is a tithe (10%). Below is a
table that records our giving (with Amy) to all
sorts of non-profit, charitable institutions, most especially St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas (SL 2). The SL 2 giving
represents more than 10% (a tithe) of our family income. Most of our giving is carefully planned, but the
miscellaneous line is more ad hoc.
Recodamos que el estándar de dádiva en la Iglesia
Episcopal es el diezmo (10%). Abajo se puede ver el
récord de las dádivas caritativas de mi familia (con
Amy), especialmente a San Lucas ~ St. Luke’s (SL 2).
Mi promesa a SL 2 representa más que 10% (un diezmo) de mi ingreso familiar. Hacemos la mayor parte de
nuestras dádivas con intención y planificación, pero la
línea miscelánea es espontanea.
We are glad to be able to give a tithe to our church, and
support other important charities. Most of the other
charities have added value to our lives, and so we give
to continue their existence in unrestricted funds. Others are meaningful to me as a person who grew up in a
poor foreign country. When the spiritual benefit of giving away money outside of family or friends became
clear, we recognized SL 2

Estamos llenos de gracias que podemos diezmar en
nuestra iglesia y apoyar organizaciones caritativas importantes. La mayoría de estas organizaciones caritativas han añadido al valor de nuestras vidas, y damos
para ayudar a continuar su existencia con fondos sin
restricción. Otras tienen significado para mí como una
persona que ha crecido de niño en un país pobre y

COMMUNION CLASS
All 10+ year olds are invited to a class on Holy Communion starting on September 20th at noon. The class
will be very handy for all acolytes, to explain what is
going on the in the service, and help all kids to enjoy
the worship each Sunday through participation. Please
enroll your kids with Father Jaime so we know how
many books and materials are needed.
(English articles continue, page 5)
PRIMERA COMUNIÓN
Todos los mayores que 10 años están invitados a nuestra clase sobre la Santa Comunión, empezando el 20 de
septiembre a las 12 mediodía. Es muy útil para acólitos
para explicar lo que está sucediendo en la misa, y para
niños que leen, para que disfruten del culto por medio
de su participación. Por favor, inscriban a sus niños
para que el P. Jaime pueda comprar los materiales que
necesitamos.

THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
GUARDIÁN MAYOR
Los ministerios para niños incluyen la
Escuela Dominical, Escuela Bíblica de
Verano y programas para familias, como
lo son las actividades de regreso a la
escuela y el desfile de Navidad. Estos programas han
funcionado sin problemas durante muchos años. Ha
sido así gracias a la dedicación de cuatro maestras
(Pat Hale, Sue Henry, Lee Wilson y Herlinda (Linda)
Márquez), dos asistentes (Arianna Zavala y Jessica
Marquez), su líder excepcional (Ebie Mountford ), y
muchos otros voluntarios maravillosos. Debido a que
Ebie se jubila este año, Linda Márquez será la nueva
Coordinadora Ministerios del Niño. Linda trae gran
conocimiento y entusiasmo a la posición. Ella cuenta
además con la ayuda y sabiduría de Ebie.
Mientras que la mayoría de nosotros participa de en
la Misa, los niños de 3-10 asisten a la Escuela
Dominical utilizando un plan de estudios basado en
el sistema de educación Montessori llamado "Jugar
Junto a Dios". El plan de estudios consiste en contar
historias Bíblicas de manera creativa, tiene un
componente espiritual e incluye un tiempo para la
exploración creativa individual. El programa está
disponible en inglés y español, por lo que las mismas
historias se les enseñan tanto durante las Misas de las
10:00 am y 1:00 pm. En la Misa de la mañana hay
normalmente entre 10-14 niños, mientras que el Misa
de la tarde hay entre 20-25 niños y pueden llegar
hasta 35. Ambos servicios necesitan ayudantes y/o
maestros adicionales. Para ser un ayudante necesita
sentir amor por los los niños y tomar el
entrenamiento diocesano llamado "Protegiendo a los
Niños de Dios". Si desea ser un maestro también
tendrá que tomar el entrenamiento en "Jugar Junto a
Dios". Si usted está interesado en ayudar por favor
hable con Linda (celular: 360-863-4528), Lee Wilson
(celular: 858-229-2605) o P. Jaime.

REPORTE DEL CURA
A principios de este mes asistí a la capacitación sobre
Comunicación Intercultural organizada por la Diócesis Episcopal de Olimpia. Stephanie Aschmann
(Guardián Mayor), así como Karen Burgess-Cassler
quien asiste la misa de 10:00 a.m. asistieron conmigo.
De hecho, fuimos la mayor representación de una
sola parroquia en la capacitación. Nos allegro mucho
representar de San Lucas ~ San Lucas (y para ser honesto presumir un poco acerca de ser el grupo más
grande).
El Rev. Eric Law y sus colaboradores del Kaleidoscope Institute facilitaron el evento de 6 días. Durante la
capacitación se participamos de una serie de actividades enfocadas en la ampliación de nuestro entendimiento de diferencias culturales y en apreciación la
pluralidad cultural en la iglesia.
Una de las herramientas prácticas compartidas con
nosotros en la capacitación fueron las Pautas para la
comunicación con RESPETO
R = Asuma la RESPONSABILIDAD de lo que dice y
siente, sin culpar a los demás.
E = Escuche con EMPATÍA, desde la situación y
punto de vista de la otra persona.
S = Sea SENSIBLE a las diferencias en los estilos de
comunicación.
P = PIENSE bien lo que escucha y lo que siente antes
de hablar.
E = EXAMINE sus propias suposiciones y
percepciones
T = TOLERE la ambigüedad, porque no estamos aquí
para discutir quién tiene la razón y quién no la
tiene.
O = OIGA todo con cuidado y guárdelo
confidencialmente.
El Rev. Eric Law – Kaleidoscope Institute, Diócesis Episcopal de
Los Angeles http://www.kscopeinstitute.org/respectfulcommunication-guidelines/
Karen, Stephanie y yo aceptamos la invitación para
formar parte del Equipo Diocesano de Empoderamiento de Diversidad Cultural. Este equipo trabajará
a nivel diocesano y regional (nosotros formamos parte de la región de Columbia) en proveer capacitación
de Comunicación y Apreciación Intercultural para
clero, líderes laicos y otros interesados.
Estén atentos para más información sobre eventos y
actividades de esta naturaleza en los
próximos meses aquí en San Luke’s ~
San Lucas.

FERIA DE JUSTICIA Y PAZ
Estan invitados a la Feria para Justicia y Paz de la
ciudad de Vancouver, el 12 de septiembre de 9 a 4 en
Ester Short Park. Les invitamos a visitar nuestro despliegue, tomar un tiempo para ver los otros grupos
que trabajan por justicia y paz. San Lucas has sido
orgullosamente líder en esta feria desde el principio
de su fundación.
INFORME SOBRE NUESTRAS
INSTALACIONES
Ahora que ya no están los postes/columnas en el
salón parroquial y con las nuevas luces y
ventiladores funcionando, tenemos un salón
parroquial del podemos estar orgullosos. El siguiente
paso es instalar uno puerta nueva en la esquina sureste. La puerta nueva nos dará otra salida que puede
ser usada por nuestros feligreses e visitantes en sillas
de ruedas. El paso final comenzará el 14 de
septiembre y tomará unas dos semanas. Será el
trabajo de renovación del acabado del piso, lo que
nos obligará a estar fuera del salón parroquial al
menos por dos semanas. Después de que el acabado
esté terminado vamos a necesitar que cargar y
levantar las sillas, mesas y otros objetos pesados al
moverlos. Esto es muy importante por el primer mes
de uso, pero deberíamos tratar de hacerlo hábito
para así el piso dure más tiempo.
En los alrededores afuera hemos contratado una
compañía de poda de árboles para recortar y retirar
ramas peligrosas de los cedros que están cerca de las
líneas eléctricas y del edificio. El árbol de arce/maple
que está en la parte este del edificio se recortado por
lo menos seis pies. Esto sucederá el 24 de septiembre.
Ahora que llega la temporada de siembra de otoño,
el Equipo de Trabajo de los Jueves estará trabajando
en la nivelación y replantación de césped y flores en
el lado oeste del edificio.

SENIOR WARDEN’S REPORT
The Children’s Ministries include Sunday
school, Vacation Bible School and Family
Programs such as a back-to-school gathering and the Christmas pageant. These
programs have run smoothly for many years, thanks
to the dedication of four teachers (Pat Hale, Sue Henry, Lee Wilson and Herlinda (Linda) Marquez), two
regular helpers (Arianna Zavala and Jessica
Marquez), their exceptional leader (Ebie Mountford),
and a number of other wonderful volunteers. As Ebie
is retiring this year, Linda Marquez will become the
Sunday School Coordinator. With Ebie’s guidance
and Linda’s knowledge and enthusiasm our Sunday
School program will thrive.
While most of us attend church, children ages 3-10
attend Sunday School using a Montessori-based curriculum called “Godly Play”. The curriculum involves telling Bible stories using props, but it also has
a spiritual component and includes a time for individual creative play. The program is available in both
English and Spanish, so the same stories are taught at
both the 10:00 am and 1:00 pm services. The morning
service typically has 10-14 children, while the afternoon service has 20-25 children and can have as
many as 35. Both services are in definite need of additional helpers and/or teachers. To be a helper you
need to love children and take training in
“Safeguarding God’s Children”. If you want to be a
teacher you will also need to take training in “Godly
Play”. Spanish language is helpful but not required
for the 1:00 service. If you are interested in helping

Stefanie Aschmann
CURATE’S REPORT
Early this month I attended training on Inter-Cultural
Communication Competency hosted by the Diocese
of Olympia. Our Senior Warden, Stefanie Aschmann,
and Karen Burgess-Cassler from the 10AM service,
attended the training as well. In fact, we were the
largest representation of a particular parish in the entire Diocese at the training. It was great to be able to
represent St Luke’s ~ San Lucas (and to be honest,
brag a bit about being the largest group from a parish).
The Rev. Eric Law and his associates from the Kaleidoscope Institute facilitated the 6-Day event. During
the training we participated in a series of activities
with a focus on widening our scope of understanding
on cultural differences, our awareness of diverse
ways of communication and the gifts of plurality in
the world and the church.
One of the practical tools shared with us in the training were these very useful Guidelines for Respectful
Communication –
RESPECT GUIDELINES
R – Responsibility. Take responsibility for what you
say and feel. Use “I” statements.
E – Empathetic listening. Use empathetic listening.
Put yourself in other’s shoes. Don’t have to agree.
Create a goal of mutual understanding.
6
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
S – Sensitive. Be sensitive to differences. Some people talk stories. Some people give succinct
points. Some people spiral around a topic.
Some people communicate through silence.
P – Ponder. Ponder what you hear and feel before
you speak.
E – Examine. Examine your own assumptions and
perceptions.
C – Confidentiality. Confidentiality is different than
secrets. Share constructively to uphold the wellbeing of the community. Individuals decide and
speak.
T – Trust. Trust ambiguity, we are not here to debate
who is right or wrong.
The Rev. Eric Law - Kaleidoscope Institute, Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles http://www.kscopeinstitute.org/respectful-communication-guidelines/
Karen, Stefanie and I have accepted the invitation to
be part of the Diocesan Diversity Empowerment
Training Team. This team will work at the Diocesan
level and regional level (we are part of the Columbia
region) in providing Inter-Cultural Communication
and Diversity trainings to clergy, lay leaders and
church wide.
Stay tuned for more information about upcoming
activities and events of this nature coming
up here at Saint Luke’s ~ San Lucas in the
upcoming months.

NOTES FROM THE MUSIC ROOM
Nancy and I had a fabulous tour in France this past
month. We played three different programs on three
different organs in three different towns and had a
little time to visit friends, see six amazing Romanesque churches in the Auvergne area France, and
8
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
to sample the seafood on the Brittany coast. The
high-point for us was to play the historic organs
built by Aristide Cavaille-Coll at the Cathedral in
Orleans. The group Am is d es Orgue or “Friends of
the Organ” welcomed us and filled the Cathedral’s
700 seats for our organ duet concert on August 9th.
Special thanks to Willy Silva and the various musical
volunteers who helped out during my absence. This
was a great opportunity for the 10 AM congregation
to get to know our fine musicians from the 1 PM service. Please welcome Crystal Richter, my organ substitute for five Sundays this Fall. The Vestry was
kind enough to support my request for some professional leave time, beginning September 13th during
my wife Nancy’s sabbatical from her church music
position at St. James Lutheran Church in Portland.
The choir will be back in their robes for “Welcome
Back Sunday” August 30 and will continue to meet
on Sunday mornings at 9:15 under the able leadership of our own Beth Lawson. Everyone is invited to
hear the fine vocal group Chor Anno here at St.
Luke’s-San Lucas on September 26th at 7 PM. The
first Wednesday evening rehearsals for
the choir and handbell ringers will be on
October 14th. The new Jazz Vespers series
will begin on October 24th.
ALTAR FLOWERS
Do you enjoy the beautiful flowers that adorn St.
Luke's ~ San Lucas altar every Sunday? Why not
pick a Sunday to remember someone dear to you or
to offer thanksgiving for a blessing in your life? The
process is easy; choose your date and the tribute you
wish to appear in the Sunday bulletin, find and complete one of the Altar Flower forms in the Narthex
and place it in the offering plate. The dedication cost
is now $35, and will go to insure we have flowers on
the Altar. Any questions, call Carol Hiltz (360-5973094) or Sandra Kimura (360-693-8518).
BILINGUAL CONFIRMATION
SERVICE - OCTOBER 18
Save the date! Sunday, October 18 at 12 noon we will
have a bilingual Confirmation and Holy Eucharist
service. We are very excited that Bishop Cabell Tennis will be with us. The 10AM and 1PM services will
be cancelled so that we can come together for this
special service. Come and support those who will be
confirmed, received and renewing their commitment
to Jesus Christ. We will have a special Coffee Hour/
Reception after the service to celebrate and welcome
these new Episcopalians.

supplies and backpacks for the kids who will receive
them! In September we will be collecting socks and
underwear for children, including middle and high

PEACE & JUSTICE FAIR
The 12th annual Peace and Justice Fair will be
Saturday, September 12 at Esther Short Park. St
Luke's ~ San Lucas has exhibited for several years.
Being at the Fair is the most visible parish presence
in the community outside our campus. Please commit to helping this large and unique once-per-year
event. Help is needed to plan the exhibit in advance,
then on Fair day to load the truck at church, unload
and set up in the Park, welcome visitors to the exhibit from 9AM-4PM, take down, load the truck,
and unload back on campus. Many helpers means
nobody must do all that work. Sign up sheet is in the

Also, if parishioners belong to human rights, environmental, social justice and similar groups that
could also exhibit, urge them to do so. Den Mark is a
Fair organizer and can answer questions about the
Fair itself (694-3703). This is major opportunity to
promote our parish and present our Episcopalian/
Anglican form of Christianity. Evangelism in kit

ALL PARISH MEETING
Mark your calendars and save this date! On September 13 at about 11:30AM, following the 10 AM service. St Luke’s ~ San Lucas will hold an all-parish
meeting to talk about a variety of topics, including
our new alcohol policy, the mutual ministry review
of our stated goals and an update on the maintenance progress in the Parish Hall. It promises to be a
very interesting session. We'll have a light potluck

Stefanie Aschmann, Senior Warden
MUTUAL MINISTRY REVIEW
Four years ago St. Luke’s – San Lucas, through a series of facilitated sessions, established four goals that
we as a parish should be working toward:
Goal 1: Develop a closer relationship between the
Anglo and Hispanic members of the Parish.
Goal 2: Expand outreach programs into the
community.
Goal 3: Provide opportunities for members to grow
in faith in a safe social environment.
Goal 4: Continue support of the Pastoral Care
Committee’s vital work.
The Mutual Ministry Review is intended to help us
evaluate our progress toward achieving these goals,
to identify our challenges, and to help us refocus our
efforts to make this parish the parish we envision it
to be.
IT'S TIME TO GET CRAFTY!!
It’s time to get started on your craft project
for the Holiday Craft & Gift Sale, Saturday
and Sunday, November 21 & 22. If you
need INSPIRATION and/or instruction there will be
a library of craft books for loan beginning Sunday,
September 6 available during coffee hour at a table
in the Parish Hall.

RUMMAGE SALE FUNDRAISER
NEWS
With feelings of both joy and sadness, Russ Roseberry will not be doing the Rummage Sale in 2016. Russ
has been the organizer, pick-up driver, and brains
behind this event for over 10 years. He still wants to
help, but leadership must now fall to someone else.
The Rummage Sale helps our youth activities such as
HYC and JYC weekends, Six Day high school camp,
and Camp Huston, as well as other expenses. The
Rummage Sale has generated between $2,900 and
11
$3,500. We collect from everyone in the parish, and
sell on Friday evening and Saturday.
An additional benefit to the community is hard to
report: People start calling the Parish early to ask
about the Rummage Sale. Most of the buyers are not
members of the church. The Rummage Sale is a good
place to buy very reasonably priced usable items of
all sorts. I still ski on skis I bought in 2011! Now if
there would just be snow…
Please consider volunteering to run the Rummage
Sale. Perhaps with a group of friends, a committee to
share the burdens would make it more fun. Please
pray for this effort to continue in some form, and
count on Russ to coach the new team.

Revenues: Actual revenues as of August are ahead
of what would be expected. From the treasurer’s
office perspective, the downturn of the economy has
reversed itself and has turned into a very generous
uptick in donations of all kinds to St. Luke’s/San Lucas. Your gifts are very much appreciated and help
to fully support our goals and outstanding ministries.
Expenses: Overall expenses are under year-to-date
budget projections by $29,420, but will be more in
line with revenue when Curate and ceiling repair
project expenses are accounted for later in the year.
Additional Comments: Thank you for continuing
to fulfill your pledge commitments during the summer months. Even with construction and hospitality
campaign commitments, most of you have been able
to keep up with your pledges and this is very much
12
THE MESSENGER EL MENSAJERO
appreciated. And, for those who have been on extended vacation, this is a time to “catch up” with you
pledge commitments.
Overall, the budget this year has been hit with several curve balls making predictions much more difficult. An internal audit uncovered an on-going error
in accounting that actually increased revenue. In addition, we are attempting to cover St. Luke’s ~ San
Lucas’ portion of the 2015 Curate expenses from the
operating budget; and we are also hoping to use
available cash to offset part of the costs of the ceiling
repair from operating funds.
Thanks for your continued financial
support of St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas.

FACILITY PROGRESS REPORT
Now that the posts are gone and the new
lights and fans are in place and working,
we have a parish hall that we can be
proud of. The next step is the new door
in the south east corner which will give
us another exit that can be utilized by our
parishioners and guests who use wheel chairs. The
final step will begin on September 14th and take about
two weeks. This is the refinishing of the floor and
will require us to be out of the hall for about two
weeks. After the finishing is done we will all need to
CARRY CHAIRS AND TABLES AND OTHER
HEAVY OBJECTS when moving them. This is very
important for the first month of use but we should
try and make it a habit to lengthen the life of the
floor.
Outside we have scheduled a tree trimming firm to
trim the Cedar trees away from power lines and the
building and remove dangerous limbs. The Maple
tree that is against the east side of building will be
trimmed back to at least six feet from the building.
This will happen on September 24.
Now that the fall planting season is at hand, the
Thursday Crew will be getting a load of soil and leveling and replanting the lawn and flower beds on the
west side of the building.

LOCAL BOXING CONTROVERSY
In last month’s Messenger, we found that St. Luke’s
Parish Hall was the site of the forerunner of Vancouver’s YMCA. There is a “back story” however. In
February, 1910, the Hall was the site of boxing exhibitions, including a local boxer, “Bud” Anderson.
Prize fights were being held in Portland. Local saloonkeepers wanted to stay open later to catch the
returning crowds. Rebuked by the City Council, the
saloonkeepers threatened to get boxing banned in
Clark County.
On April 4, 1911, the City Council passed an ordinance allowing prize fights. Mayor Higgins, an STL
parish member, had pointed out the economic advantage to the city. Numerous fights were quickly
scheduled, held at the 1,000 spectator Vancouver Auditorium.
A few temperance-minded ministers were actively
protesting boxing matches by mid-April. On May 6,
Judge McMaster arrested the promoters and two
fighters, including “Bud” Anderson. Mr. Anderson
told the Court “I don’t intend to use bodily violence
in the fight.” The judge ruled fights were banned in
Vancouver, because they were banned in the State of
Washington. The prosecutor was Charles W. Hall, an
STL parish member.
In November, 1911, the Vancouver Ministerial Association established the forerunner of the YMCA at St.
Luke’s Parish Hall, with no mention of boxing.
“Bud” Anderson went on to become the Lightweight
Champion of the Northwest in 1913.
So, St. Luke’s, indirectly, heralded in a
local controversy, and then its members
found a way to assuage the “problems”
in its community.

“A MORE PERFECT UNION”
CONCERT
Chor Anno will perform its 2015 concert at St.
Luke’s ~ San Lucas on Saturday, September 26th, at
7 PM. Chor Anno is a 30 voice choir made up of
some of the finest choral directors from colleges and
schools in the northwest. They perform one concert
program per year. Vancouver’s Howard Meharg
conducts the group, now in its seventh year. Meharg
called on colleagues in the American Choral Directors Association in organizing the ensemble. They
13
come from Idaho, Washington and Wyoming. Local
choral musicians include April Duvic (Clark College), Janet Reiter (Seton HS), Catherine van der
Salm, Gary Gross, Joel Karn, Shannon Anderson
(Vancouver) and Rhonda Slinkard (La Center). Nicole Lamartine, head of the choral music department
at the University of Wyoming sings and is also Chor
Anno’s Associate Conductor.
Most of the music in the concert is for mixed choir.
There will be a work for male voices, “The Field,”
based on texts related to the Civil War. The women
are featured in a work called “Nada Te Turbe,” (Nothing Will Disturb You) by Sr. Claire Sokol,
OCD.
Suggested donation for the concert is $20, but St.
Luke’s ~ San Lucas people should feel completely
free to donate any amount you wish, or nothing at
all. We appreciate your hospitality in inviting us to
sing in that wonderful sacred space.

NEW ADULT FORUM CURRICULUM
In the Spirit of the Circle
A Christian formation resource that presents new
ways of understanding and responding to the wide,
beautiful diversity of faith and formation that are the
cornerstone of Anglican spirituality. Building on the
rich storytelling traditions of Native American and
Indigenous peoples, this unique program connects
some of the most deeply treasured and difficult narratives of our First Nations peoples with stories of
the Old and New Testaments. In the Spirit of the Circle bridges cultural divides and breaks down stereotypes,
inviting each of us to walk the "Red Road" - to experience Indigenous ways of traditional spirituality and
culture - with Jesus and with each other. Each week
participants will use a workbook and provided visuals to enhance their understanding. Begins Sunday,
September 20 at 9AM in the Chapel of the Holy
Spirit.
