    Writing a letter for the Newsheet may be one of the hardest things that I need to do during the week. It is difficult to put my thoughts down to a couple of paragraphs week after week, especially when I have a deadline. That is why you all get so many comics in this space, they often say what I want to say in

    a concise way.

    I am very glad that Rachel and Trinity will now share this space with me each month so that they can let you know what is going on in their respective ministries so that you can continue to be informed.

    In Tennessee, an estimated 1000 men, women, and children die by suicide each year. More people die by suicide each year than from homicide, AIDS, or motor

    vehicle accidents. Suicide is the leading cause of violent deaths in our state, nationally, and worldwide, far above homicide and death due to natural disasters. Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among youth and young adults ages 15-24 in Tennessee and for the United States at large. According to the Tennessee Department of Health, there were 1,163 recorded suicide deaths in our state in 2017, at a rate of 17.3 per 100,000 population. For more data on suicide loss, lived experience, and at-risk groups, review TSPN’s 2019 Status of Suicide (http://tspn.org/sost).

    In almost all cases, suicide can be traced to unrecognized, untreated, or poorly treated mental illness. It can happen to people of either sex, any race or ethnicity, and any economic status. The average suicide death leaves behind six survivors—family and friends of the deceased— all of who are at increased risk for a suicide attempt themselves. As if the emotional and psychological toll were not enough, suicide and suicide attempts cost the state of Tennessee $1 billion a year in medical treatment, lost wages, and lost productivity.

    The Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network (TSPN) and its allies in the public health, mental health, and social service fields are joining forces to recognize the month of September as Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. During this annual observance, TSPN and its allies arrange several educational and memorial events across Tennessee. These projects help teach the general public about the problem of suicide and how it can be prevented. They also give us an opportunity to remember those lost to suicide; to encourage survivors of suicide, survivors of suicide attempts, and people who have triumphed over mental illness; and to recognize individuals who have made notable contributions to suicide prevention efforts in our state.

    As part of this observance, TSPN’s annual Suicide Prevention Awareness Day event, scheduled for 10:30 AM on Wednesday, September 11th, at Trevecca Community Church, located at 335 Murfreesboro Pike in

    (Continued on back)

    The Annual Community Food Assistance meeting will be held on Thursday, October 3 in our own Fellowship Hall again this year. This is the annual meeting of representatives from local food pantries and feeding programs, along with members of the Hunger Task Force and the United Way’s Safety & Stability Vision Council. A few of us will be attending the meeting as representatives from our own WRPC Food Pantry. It is an excellent opportunity to share what is going on in our own programs with others also serving neighbors in need of food.

    If you would like to join Susan Lodal as an additional representative from WRPC at the meeting, please let her know.

    Holston Volunteers Needed to Provide Meals for UKIRK

    Campus Ministry Those who were at worship on September 15 had the opportunity to meet the new UKIRK Interim

    Director, Brianna Olson. UKIRK is the Presbyterian campus ministry at ETSU. UKIRK’s core values are:

    Connection: to God and one another

    Inclusion: of ALL students and our partner churches

    Love: the foundation of our faith, binding us all together

    One way UKIRK tangibly displays connection, inclusion and love is through their Monday night program. Each week, they gather together for a meal, worship service, lesson and discussion. That’s where you come in. UKIRK needs volunteers to bring food for each of these Monday evening sessions and they are reaching out to the churches of Holston Presbytery to provide this act of hospitality.

    You can either bring a meal or heavy snacks/finger foods (think pizza rolls, mini-quiches, party platters, finger foods). Delivery/set-up begins at 6:00 pm. Dinner is at 6:30 pm with worship at 7 pm. You are invited to stay and eat and/or worship with the students, or you can just drop off the food. If you need to deliver food at a different day and/or time (even over the weekend), Brianna is happy to work with us. Meals can even be taken in advance and be frozen and heated later.

    You should plan to feed 6-10 students. Meal options to consider include baked potato bar with salad, pasta dishes, soups or chili with bread, Mexican dishes such as enchiladas or tacos. There are two vegetarians in the group and nut, cinnamon, and chickpea allergies. There are MANY open dates on the schedule* for this school year—please consider volunteering either individually or as a small group. Contact Karen Carman at [email protected] or 423-279-0094 to get more details or sign up for a date that works for you. If you are willing to prepare a meal but are concerned about delivering it to ETSU, we will find a way to get it there.

    Can’t cook? You can still support UKIRK by offering your prayers in the following areas:

    • for sustained discipleship and Christian living among the students

    • for clarity and unity around vision/mission during this period of transition

    • for growth of the ministry

    Let’s do our part to ensure these students are well fed, both physically and spiritually.

    *No meals required for Oct 14 (Fall break), Dec 16-Jan 20 (Christmas break), March 16 (Spring break). The last day for this school year will be Monday, May 4th.

    Faithbuild Groundbreaking Update The 2019 Elizabeth Ann Hay Faith and Community Build groundbreaking took place September 14. The project is underway with foundation to be done this week. Waverly Roaders’ phase of the construction will be Thur./Fri./Saturday, November 7-9. Volunteer sign-up is underway.

    The materials for the Faith Build are funded by the participating organizations. Waverly Road will need to donate $5000 for our share of the project. Note that 10% of that amount, ($500) goes to Habitat International to build houses outside the US. This large project is funded outside of our Mission Action Plan budget, so donations specific to Habitat are needed and welcome.

    As of 9/15/19, $4300 has been donated.

    WRPC Fall Church Retreat Friday, November 1—

    Sunday, November 3, 2019 Holston Presbytery Camp & Retreat Center

    Banner Elk, NC

    Come discover what it means to be a good neighbor! From the inspiration and teachings of Presbyterian minister Fred Roger's we will explore what it means to be "neighborly" - to truly love our neighbors as ourselves the way Jesus has instructed us to live. Start and end times and schedule to be determined closer to. Please sign up on the website using the link for "tickets" below or on the clipboard in the gathering space at WRPC. https://waverlyroadpc.org/forms/?fbclid=IwAR0xSu4sFI9E4rbNA7n9UX9rSh0xgcGJKBzFb0HK8HLHIskU4kHsv_ZWA7o

    Stewardship Campaign Coming! On September 22 and September 29, the packets containing the proposed WRPC 2020 Operating Budget, a letter from Collin, and your pledge card will be available in the Narthex. We would ask that you pick these up either before or after the morning worship service and prayerfully consider your financial commitment for next year. We are trying to compress the timing of the overall pledge process this year and have scheduled Sunday, October 6, as Pledge Sunday. Please plan to return your pledge card, either by mail or in person by that date.

    There are many wonderful and exciting things happening at WRPC. Nowhere is this more evident than when we see so many young, excited children running down the center aisle on Sunday morning to participate in the Children’s Sermon, and we have recently welcomed a new staff member, Trinity Gibson, to coordinate and support our youth program. On behalf of the entire congregation, the Stewardship Committee thanks you for your generous support of all of the ministries of our church through the giving of your time, your talents, and your financial resources.

    1 tablespoon butter

    2 tablespoons brown sugar

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Turn acorn squash upside down onto a cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until it begins to soften, approximately 30 to 45 minutes.

    Remove squash from the oven and turn onto a plate so that the flesh is facing upwards. Place butter and brown sugar into the squash, and place remaining squash over the other piece. Place squash in a baking dish (so the squash won't slide around too much) while baking.

    Place squash in the 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven and bake another 30 minutes.
