daffodils

Spring has finally come to Charlestown, and for the past few weeks, we have been enjoying the brilliant yellows of our King Alfred daffodils in the churchyard. Recall that in our last note, we reported on the completion of painting the interior of our narthex and sanctuary. We recently decided to renew the 25-year old carpet in the same areas and have chosen to replace it with a dark blue-green colored material that reflects the color of the wood work. This contrasts nicely with the existing red carpet in the aisle and altar area.

In April, Fr. Art Bennett, in collaboration another pastor in the Charlestown Area Church Network, started “Men’s Morning.” This breakfast meeting is held in the Charlestown Community Room starting at 8:00 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month. It provides an opportunity for men to gather together in a relaxed atmosphere before Saturday morning chores and to share thoughts and experiences. We pray that these meetings will provide an opportunity to minister to men who are unchurched and witness to them the power of Christ in our lives.

Good Shepherd will sponsor a week-long vacation Bible School, “Summer Thunder,” the second week in July. This will be the fifth year that we have collaborated with the Child Evangelism Fellowship of New Hampshire to teach the Good News to children in the community.


We look forward to seeing our friends from around the Diocese of the Northeast at the October Synod in Maine.

The Diocesan Shield

 

The Shield of the Diocese of the Northeast of the Anglican Church in America consists of the red Cross of St. George on the white shield, calling to mind the Anglican heritage of the Diocese. In the left quadrant is an Evergreen Tree, sturdy and resilient, even amidst the harshness of winter. A Pastoral Staff intersects the Cross of St. George, slightly bent, the Staff is in movement telling of the continuous growth of the Diocese of the Northeast. Crowning the shield is the Pontifical Mitre, jeweled and ornamented, as a sign of joy. The color of the Mitre is predominantly blue, symbolic of contemplation and wisdom, and in honor of St. Mary.
