ONCE UPON A MAN
In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Harry Kendall Dowdy, Jr.
“Let freedom ring!”
said a man of faith and love.
I hear it ringing, ever ringing,
and know that freedom silenced today
will ring tomorrow.
Listen and you will hear freedom
ring from writs called Declaration and
Preamble, Articles and Amendments;
ring from mandates for “due process,”
“probable cause,” “equal protection of laws;”
ring as deliverance from punishment on
the medieval rack or at the fiery stake;
ring from church bells that summon
the faithful to worship, not by force of the state
but by the force of faith.
Listen further and you will hear freedom
ring when the voter conducts
the nation’s political orchestra;
ring from media free to expose wrongdoing;
ring when nonviolent citizens assemble
to lay their grievances at
the doorstep of constituted power;
ring in the cry, Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!
announcing the seating of Justice
in nine high-backed chairs
arrayed in a columned temple where
the rights of the meek equal
the rights of the mighty.
Of all its ringing,
freedom rings best when
deeds of love inspire a nation
to extend freedom in greater measure
to a greater number of its citizens,
as happened once upon a man.

The Vestry is delighted to announce the following changes to our procedures:
• We recommend masks when coming to attend worship services.
• Clergy, liturgists and other speakers may be unmasked when speaking.
• When offering the peace, please be respectful of others’ personal space.
• Offering will be collected during the Offertory Hymn performed by the Epiphany Choir.
• Beginning on October 2nd, we will begin to offer common cup or chalice during the Eucharist. Intinction in the main chalice is no longer permitted. If you do not wish to partake of the common cup, simply cross your arms across your chest and the chalicist will simply say the words of offering to you without you partaking of the wine. Please do whatever makes you most comfortable.
• Fellowship with food and drink is offered after the service. Weather permitting it will be outside on the deck, otherwise it will take place inside the Parish Hall in the Conboy Center.
