RELC Retreat, October 8 - 10, 2022 at Mar-Lu-Ridge Camp & Retreat Center

Moving through Resistance: Lessons from Ruth, Naomi & Jonah
Mar-Lu-Ridge Camp & Retreat Center
Ridge Inn Conference Center

As we remain in a time of ministry during Covid, we are excited to host an in person, Church Retreat in October 2022. From Saturday, October 8th at 10 am until Monday, October 10th at 2 pm we will gather for learning and fellowship at Mar Lu Ridge Lutheran Camp in nearby Jefferson, Maryland, about an hour away. Accommodations, meals and activities will be centralized in the Ridge Inn Conference Center which includes indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, a private cafeteria, and 16 motel style rooms each with three twin beds and a private backroom.

Ministry in the age of Covid has granted many changes, very fast changes. Retreats are an opportunity to spend time with scripture, slowly taking in the context, questions and characters in a story, allowing our reflections to be enriched by long and shared exploration. We will be guided this weekend by three scriptural figures—Jonah, Naomi and Ruth.

RELC is supplementing the cost of participation, and extending invitations to participate to members and non members, as you are welcome to share this opportunity with friends and family. Both day time participation and overnight participation can be accommodated. The full weekend includes two nights of lodging, all prepared meals, hikes, worship, camp fires, low ropes courses, and a service project, and plenty of down time. We will reflect together over the weekend--what is faithfulness; how is it defined and practiced? There are opportunities to participate as daytime visitors and overnight visitors, with limited rooms available. As a commitment to this opportunity, Resurrection will provide an adjusted price for participants. For single participants staying overnight, a 50-dollar cost and for couples and families 100 dollars for the weekend. For day time visitors, a 25-dollar cost to cover meals.

Over the next several weeks, please share any interest in participating in this planned retreat with Youth Director, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., who is coordinating this effort. Official commitments will be required by the end of August, and closed once the retreat center's capacity is reached. Each room is equipped with three twin beds and a private bathroom, with room to allow for blow up mattresses, sleeping bags and cribs.

It is our hope that this occasion delights you and provides you with both community and respite.

A Note from Pastor Linman Inviting Conversation

As I am amidst the final phase of my discernment and decision-making concerning the call from Faith Lutheran Church in Phoenix for me to serve as their pastor, I invite conversation with you, the members of Resurrection Church, that you may have occasion to express your thoughts and views and concerns. I am not drawn to making significant decisions on my own without consultation and holy conversation with others. Moreover, such conversation is in keeping with the collaborative spirit we’ve sought to build over the course of our time together. One such time for conversation is this coming Sunday after worship in the parish hall during coffee hour, when you are free to express whatever is on your mind and when I can also offer my own story of discernment. I also invite you to reach out to me for one-on-one conversation in the coming – via email, phone, Zoom, or in person. Should you desire this opportunity, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to schedule a time when we can talk. I’ll make a decision about this call on June 29.

Social Justice Learning Group

The Social Justice Learning Group met on May 1, 2022 to focus on the topic of “education.”  Members shared resources (books, articles, etc.) as well as personal anecdotes from their own school and classroom experiences.  We discussed multiple aspects of American education (locally and nationally) from both a current and historical perspective.  Several major themes emerged from the discussion, including:  

  • As most American education is funded locally, differences are inherent.
  • Historical education differences based on race (e.g., funding differentials, segregation, and many other factors) were devastating, and they contribute to economic and other achievement gaps to this day.  Many attendees had personal experience in their own early educations. 
  • There are ongoing efforts in many areas to actively discourage teaching and discussion about past inequities (improper “banning” of CRT, etc.).    

We also discussed the necessity for action(s) beyond continued efforts to learn more on this topic.  We discussed potential actions the RELC congregation could be involved in.  Some suggestions included:  inviting knowledgeable speakers to address annual meeting or other well-attended gatherings; ensuring a line-item RELC budget items to specifically address and support social justice-related actions; funding scholarships for minority youth (perhaps even at the Village School); creating a volunteer force for a diverse local school (Edd Nolen and Gay Mount mentioned serving as volunteer reading coaches through Kiwanis).  

We also agreed that our Group would create an interim report for the Church Council about our activities and learnings to date.  

The Social Justice Learning Group continues to meet on the first Sunday of each month in Room 13 after the service (and after a brief visit to coffee hour).  The next meeting is June 5th, and the topic is “Transportation,” facilitated by Effie & Franz Stallsmith.  All are invited and welcome to attend.

We also agreed that our Group would create an interim report for the Church Council about our activities and learnings to date.

Update from Pastor Linman

Thousand thanks to the many who have sent messages expressing concern and pledging their prayers for me. In order to preserve my limited energies currently, I’ve not replied to you individually. But please know of my appreciation for your concern. At this point, my Covid symptoms have been similar to a nasty head cold with general malaise, but as I write, I seem to be showing some signs of improvement. I am thankful to Pastor Amy Feira who has agreed to officiate at Saturday’s funeral for Malcolm Stark. And I am glad for the coincidence that United Lutheran Seminary President, Guy Erwin, who was scheduled to preach at Resurrection this Sunday anyway, has accepted the invitation to preside over the Worship Service. While I have limited my activity while in quarantine, I am keeping up with the basics for attending to our life together, and God willing, I’ll see you in person again on Sunday, May 8. I hope and pray that you all are staying well.

President of United Lutheran Seminary Visits Resurrection this Sunday

Resurrection Church has been a faithful financial supporter of United Lutheran Seminary and its predecessors during the past many years, even as we continue our support to the present day. Dr. Erwin wishes to thank us for our faithful support and to inform us about the current mission and initiatives of our geographically closest ELCA seminary. He will be joined by The Rev. Dr. Martin Zimmann, on the executive staff at the seminary. Please plan to stay for coffee hour to learn more about United Lutheran Seminary.

The class will meet on Zoom. On May 4 and 11, Gordon will be discussing two more texts — Nehemiah 8, and Luke 24 — that have been important as sources for understanding the form and the meaning of the Christian assembly’s practice. On the following three Wednesdays, Gail will describe how our lectionary uses the Bible on Sunday mornings. On May 18, she will focus on the Gospel reading, on May 25 the First reading, and on June 1, the Second reading. These classes involve a presentation and then a discussion and questions.

RELC Social Justice Learning Group + April 3, 2022 Meeting Summary

The Social Justice Learning Group met on April 3rd for a discussion led by Joe Ventrone on the issue of fair housing. Relying on his career-long involvement in real estate and housing policy concerns, Joe reviewed how US governmental actions (red-lining, neighborhood covenants, FHA underwriting rules, etc.) led directly to greatly imbalanced home ownership rates for Black citizens which have remained virtually stagnant over the past 50 years while the rates for other minorities (along with that of Whites) have all increased.

Further discussion among our more than 20 attendees involved racially disparate access to VA housing loans after WWII, race-based differentiation in home appraisals (highlighted recently in the Washington Post and elsewhere), the outsized impact of student loan debt on minorities seeking home ownership, the lack of affordable housing, and the general connection between historical housing discrimination and the current, widely-cited racial “wealth gap” in our country. There was general consensus that systemic barriers to fair access to housing represent yet another area where a full and accurate history has been relatively hidden from many of us.
We also discussed further future discussions on this topic with an eye towards possibly having a presentation available to the entire congregation.

The SJL Group agreed that our next discussion item would be about aspects relating to “education.” The Learning Group meets after the Sunday service in Room 13 on the first Sunday of each month – the next meeting is May 1st and all who want to learn more about social justice are welcome).
