By the way, you’re in charge of Homecoming!” I remember thinking, “What does Homecoming have to do with church?”A lot, it turns out. But first, let me explain my first associations with Homecoming. To many Americans, homecoming refers to that bizarre ritual in the fall in which high school students elect a “court” of princes, princesses, king and queen to wear fancy clothes and parade around the football field and at a Homecoming dance. People who have graduated are encouraged to “come home” for this paean to pseudo-royalty. Frankly, I didn’t see the point to all the hoopla.So what does Homecoming have to do with church? At All Saints, it marks the official start of our programmatic year: a new year of formation programs for children, youths, and adults; new Rector’s Forums; a new series of sermons and social concerns to address. We are also welcoming back all who have been away for the summer and inviting everyone to jump in to new formation and ministry opportunities.If we also think of Homecoming more broadly—as returning to one’s home—we discover the theological and spiritual depth that inspired St. Augustine to write, “Our heart is restless until it rests in You.” In his theology, our home is in God—not only in an afterlife, but also in our present existence. In his magnum opus, City of God, he writes a tale of two cities: the City of God and the City of the world.The church’s goal, he writes, is to transform the city of the world into the City of God. Although people often have the idea that ancient theology described a sharp divide between earth and heaven, or the created world and its Creator, this fifth-century theologian espoused the same beliefs that liberation theologians of the twentieth century described: it’s our job to bring heaven home. Maybe they took their hint from the Gospel of Luke: “The kingdom of heaven is within you,” Jesus says (Lk 17:20-21).Augustine is also famous for describing two types of homecoming. There is the inward journey of the mind and spirit as we find the kingdom of heaven—our spiritual home—within us. There is also the outward journey: moving out of ourselves, our egos, and our concerns, and into the greater world of creation, the home God has created for us. We have chosen the theme “The Blue Green Hills of Earth” this year to highlight “this fragile earth, our island home” (Book of Common Prayer, 370). Increasingly, Christian theologians and other spiritual writers have urged us to embrace the natural world as our home and as God’s home—or, as theologian Sally McFague writes, “the body of God.” This created world is not to be used or despised, but to be carefully preserved as the home God has given us and as a sacramental manifestation of God’s grace.This year, on Sunday, Sept. 15, we invite you to partake of this spiritual journey home both within yourselves and outside yourselves. And we also hope you discover that in some ways, you are already home.Welcome home. We’re so glad you’re here.JANINE SCHENONEFor more information about the All Saints Church Homecoming 2013 contact Norma Sigmund, (626) 583-2734 or email [email protected] The event will be held on Sunday, September 15, 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Quad Lawn/Cloister, Sweetland Hall.For more information, visit Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

And she has given birth to a book for the children, “Tumford” the cat. Tumford is not a bad cat, but it seems as if he is always misbehaving.Tillman said most all children misbehave at some time, but that doesn’t mean they are bad children. Through Tumford’s misdeeds, they learn that misbehaving doesn’t mean they are bad.“I want children to know that even if they misbehave, they are still loved,” she said.Not only does Tillman write her books, she also does the illustrations.“I do all of the illustrations digitally and it can take me up to nine months to illustrate a book,” she said.Tillman, who lives in Portland, Oregon, said she doesn’t do many books signings now because there aren’t as many small bookstores to host them.But Tillman’s children’s books continue to be popular because, Trawick said, they do say the words that parents want to say. “And just the sound of them let’s children know they are loved.” Best-selling author Tillman visits Brundidge library By Jaine Treadwell Nancy Tillman’s mother began reading to her at an early age.
