Rediscovering Our Foundation
On Sunday June 9, Janie and I went to York, South
Carolina in order for me to preach at the homecoming
celebration of the third church I ever served. This was
the 185th year for this celebration and the marquee out
front read: “Beth Shiloh Presbyterian Church: 185th
Homecoming featuring the Return of John Roper.” I
wondered if visitors might think that I had been their
pastor 185 years ago. Homecoming is a day sponsored by the cemetery association. I don’t think the
sign was intended to capitalize on zombie craze
prevalent in the media these days; it might have been
merely a reference to the fact that I look like the
walking dead.
At any rate, it was a wonderful day with a lively
worship service followed by an incredible church
dinner. The day is an opportunity for past members
who have moved away and relatives of members to
return and renew friendships and share old stories.
The stories they told about me were all quite kind.
I sometimes hope that past congregations’ way of
remembering me as their pastor might be a foretaste
of God’s grace and mercy. Churches are a culture
within the larger culture. As such they have the
power to shape us and give our lives direction.
The text I used for the sermon that Sunday was Isaiah
51:1-3. It reads, “Listen to me, you that pursue righteousness, you that seek the Lord. Look to the rock
from which you were hewn, and to the quarry from
which you were dug. Look to Abraham your father
and to Sarah who bore you; for he was but one when
I called him, but I blessed him and made him many.
For the Lord will comfort Zion; he will comfort all
her waste places, and will make her wilderness like
Eden, her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and
gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the
voice of song.”
Bonnie Johnson, formerly Bonnie Greer, was in
worship with us on Sunday. She grew up here at
Harvey Browne. She had been going through
some old files and found her Sunday school
workbook from 1953. On the cover is a picture
of a little boy and girl headed up steps to the
church door. Next to that picture we read “This
is my Church and Home Book.”
In 1953, the rock from which we were hewn,
and the quarry from which we were dug would
have been found in church and at home. It still
is, but what has changed is that this is no longer
the first place we look in times of trouble.
When the relationship crises come, bringing
with them divorce and problem children, where
do we go? When our lives are suddenly not at all
what we want or expected, where do we look? A
few years ago we might have rushed off to the
self-help section of the bookstore. These days
we would be more likely to seek the answer on
the Internet or, perhaps, from friends on Twitter
or Facebook. The problem is that none of these
would be likely to lead us back to the foundational stories of our faith. None of these is
likely to lead us to Abraham and Sarah, who
remind us of our hope in a God who keeps
promises. None of these will lead us back to
the God who created us and shaped us.
We cannot go back to the ’50s, as appealing as
that may be to some of us. But God is not stuck
in the ’50s. Our moving forward when we are
stuck in those “lost places” best begins not with
Google but with God. To paraphrase an old
Beatles song, we need to “get back to where we
once belonged,” not in order to stay there, but in
order to move forward. A new future begins
with rediscovering our foundation, the quarry
from which we were dug.

Hymnal Celebration
HBPres
Great news is that through the generosity of Harvey
Browne’s family of members, we were able to order
copies of the new Presbyterian hymnal, Glory to God
that will be delivered in the fall!
The Session last month approved an official
“nickname” for the church—HBPres. The
name was recommended by Harvey Browne’s
Marketing Team, which has been working for
more than a year on a long-range strategy for
promoting the church and increasing
membership.
Additional great news, Harvey Browne has been chosen to
be one of six locations throughout the nation to host
publication celebrations. The celebrations include workshops and worship and one will be held at Harvey Browne
March 14-15, 2014.
Registration for the Louisville Hymnal Event is ready to
go live. Please visit the website http://events.signup4.com/
lvlhymnalevent to find out more information and to
register.
As March approaches we will be looking for HB members
to help with different aspects of the event. Please contact
Anne Hughes, [email protected], if you have
problems registering or questions regarding this event.
Notes from Session
The Session of HBMPC met on June 4, 2013 for a stated
meeting. Following the devotion given by Myra Earley,
the following business was handled:
•
All Session members will wear lanyards with an “Ask
Me” card attached to help visitors on Sunday
mornings.
•
Members of the Board of Deacons gave an overview
of the Board and presented a copy of its operating
manual.
•
A report was given on the purchase of the new hymnal,
Glory to God. Through the generosity of the congregation, we were able to purchase more hymnals than
originally and to have them imprinted with the
church’s name.
•
The Marketing Team presented and the Session
approved a new nickname and logo for Harvey
Browne. (See accompanying article.)
The Session also approved a new logo that
will incorporate the nickname surrounding a
cross. The logo will be officially introduced
at the start of the new program year.
The nickname will not replace the church’s
legal name—Harvey Browne Memorial
Presbyterian Church. It will, however, be the
way we present ourselves, both to our
members and the community, on our website,
stationary, newsletter and in other ways.
The Marketing Team has spent much of the
past year studying trends and behavior
patterns that have affected church membership
and attendance over the past 50 years. The
findings were the basis for the team’s
recommendation of a less formal name to
better reflect the times.
Be watching for more information about the
name and its formal introduction a few months
from now.
The next stated meeting will be August 6, 2013.

Mission News
A Little Southern
Hospitality?
When responding to a lady, a child is taught to
Answer politely, “Yes, Ma’am” or No, Ma’am.”
At Harvey Browne Presbyterian, we learned 41
years ago to acknowledge our community with
“YES, MAM!” We know St. Matthews Area
Ministries by that familiar acronym, St. MAM.
Forty-one years ago our church joined with
neighboring churches, Beargrass Christian and
St. Matthews United Methodist to launch St.
MAM. It is difficult to estimate how many
hundreds of thousands (if not millions) have been
touched or helped in some manner through
St. MAM. This source of help within our community, which Harvey Browne continues to support,
continues to address the needs of families and
individuals daily.
We will hear from Executive Director Dan G.
Lane on the morning of Sunday, July 21. Serving
In that role since 1994, Dan will remind and
challenge us that, now more than ever, Harvey
Browne is instrumental in saying, “Yes, MAM” In
2012, St. MAM rendered 10,360 emergency assistance services, addressing 2,590 families, and
allocating $72,767 in financial assistance. When it
comes to A “bang for the buck”, consider that
St. MAM leverages $490,000 of in-kind support
($117,163 in volunteer hours) and donations per
year. Harvey Browne continues, after forty-one
years to Say, “YES, MAM.” You can learn more
about St. MAM at www.stmam.com and by
hearing Dan Lane on Sunday, July 21

Youth Launch New
Mission Project
DO-IN Committee
Needs Volunteers
The youth will be making sleeping mats for the homeless by crocheting plastic grocery bags as an ongoing
mission project, which will begin at Do-In. There are
many ways all HB members can participate in this
project. We will be taking plastic grocery bags, flattening them, cutting them into strips, connecting the
strips into plastic yarn, and crocheting the yarn into
mats. We will begin accepting the grocery bags in
July. Please leave them in the drop closet. If you want
to take the additional step of flattening them and putting them in a box, that would be extremely helpful.
If you want to be even more involved and cut the bags
into strips, make the yarn, or even crochet your own
mat please look for instructions in the foyer.
Do-In is the annual kick-off for the Harvey
Browne Youth program. This amazing weekend
of fun, community building, faith and worship is
something you simply need to see to believe. Not
only do the youth love this event, but adult volunteers return year after year to help make it a
success and to share in the experience. We are in
need of volunteers who can spend the Labor Day
weekend (or part of the weekend) with our youth
at Cedar Ridge Camp.
Please contact Adam or Adrienne Earley
[email protected] if you have any questions or
want to help. If you would like to join us at Do-In
working with the youth to make the mats, please let
Adam know. Here is a link to a You Tube instructional video that explains how to prep the bags and
make the mats: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=BiUC0iDQtkA.
Do-In 2013: Escape!
Among the volunteer positions we need to fill are:
cabin counselors, small group leaders, cooks, arts
and crafts instructors, photographers, activity
directors and general administrative help. Volunteers from all age groups are helpful and you don’t
have to have a youth participating to volunteer.
When: Friday August 30, through Sunday
September 1.
If you are interested in helping or would like
more information, please contact Candyce
Gordon, [email protected], or
Missy Turner, [email protected]
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Do-In is our fall youth retreat. It marks the beginning
of the year for the Harvey Browne Youth Group and,
more importantly, is an incredible amount of fun. DoIn is a retreat for anyone who is in the 6th-12th grade.
The theme for Do-In this year is Escape! Youth will
be exploring the things that bind us in life and prevent
us from being fully alive. We will talk about how our
faith sets us free and practice the Sabbath as a means
of revitalization and escape from the pressures of the
world. Come to Do-In 2013: Escape! and be set free!
A large portion of the weekend retreat is dedicated to
small groups, keynote discussions, and worship. We
do also have a lot of fun with dances, games, crafts,
and a Do-In surprise! If you are a youth, set aside
August 30th - September 1st on your calendar and plan
on coming to Do-In. You will not be disappointed.
The registration form for the weekend is included in
this newsletter.
