Redeemer Asheville

Redeemer Asheville

We are an Anglican church in Asheville, Rooted in the historic Christian faith, Rhythmic in spiritual exercise, and Redemptive in practice. Our desire is to be a church that celebrates our ancient roots while fully embracing our context.

This is expressed in our worship expression, often referred to as 'Ancient-Future.' We find the Anglican aesthetic to be a perfect fit for our artistic home. Our worship intends to appeal to all senses--from the subtle smell of incense, to the taste of the wine and bread of the Eucharist meal. Additionally, it is participatory. Redeemer does not stage a production each week, but instead, we seek to corporately express our common prayer. We exist as a community, dependent on our God and one another.! Contact us for more info.

Operating as usual

Back in April, Fr. Alex was ordained into the priesthood! In the ordination liturgy the candidate is exhorted to “be a messenger, watchman, and steward of the Lord” to “teach, to warn, to feed, and to provide for the Lord’s family”. They lay prostrate before the bishop while the Veni, Creator Spiritus is sung over them, asking for the Holy Spirit to inspire and anoint. The liturgy culminates with the new priest celebrating the Eucharist!
Thanks to @josephflutyphotography for capturing these beautiful images of the service!

“Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit” Acts 2:2-4a

Today on Pentecost we will gather in one indoor service at 5:00pm. No need to sign up. Afterwards we’re having a cookout with hotdogs and brats, bring a side or dessert to share. Wear red if you can!🕊🔥🌬

Today we gathered alongside the Mullert family to lay baby Kent to rest. We are grieving together and thanking God for his life and the glimpse of God’s love it gave us.

Give rest, O Christ, to your servant with your saints, where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting.

Amen.

We’re about halfway through the season of lent - how are your lenten practices going? We found it refreshing this week to go back to the words we prayed together at the end of our Ash Wednesday services:

O Lord our God, grant us grace to desire you with our whole heart: that desiring you, we may seek you; and that seeking you, we may find you; and that finding you, we may love you; and that loving you, we may hate those sins from which you have delivered us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(Artwork from our children’s programs representing the lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting and alms giving)

Join us in praying for baby Kent and the Mullerts as he is cared for in the NICU. He was born with an enlarged heart which means both his heart and his lungs are having to work extra hard to sustain him. He has been transferred to the hospital in Charlotte where he is awaiting a possible heart transplant.

Transfiguration Sunday ⛰ the final Sunday of Epiphanytide, the final Sunday before Lent. On this day we read of Christ revealed radiantly as the Son of God to Peter, James and John. This Russian icon shows them literally flung upside down, their reality completely reoriented by the incarnation.
May we too be so dazzled by this truth today that we are reoriented toward Christ and his kingdom.

“To be human is to be a liturgical animal, a creature whose loves are shaped by our worship. And worship isn’t optional” - James K.A. Smith

In our table groups we’ve been discussing this idea. If we worship no matter what, our habits and practices reveal what we love. Conversely, our habits and practices have the ability to shape our loves.

Today is the Feast of the Presentation of Christ at the Temple, also known as Candlemas. This day is considered by many to be the close of the Christmas to Epiphany Season. In Christ's day, forty days after a child was born, the mother was required to go to the temple for ritual purification, after which she was able to re-enter public life. This marked the end of a period similar to our modern idea of the fourth trimester.

In today’s reading (Luke 2:22—40) Mary and Joseph presented their son at the temple and encountered Simeon and Anna. You'll recognize Simeon's exclamation as the Nunc Dimittis from Evening Prayer. Some consider Anna the first missionary to the Gentiles, as she declared to all who would listen: this child shall be the light — the light for the whole world!

There is a Candlemas tradition of bringing candles into the church to be blessed for use in the year ahead. As the priest lit a candle, the light would shine bright on a gloomy day but be difficult to see on a sunny day. And in the words of the old English poem:

If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Come winter, have another flight.
If Candlemas bring clouds and rain,
Go winter, and come not again.

It's the origin of our modern Groundhog Day!

Liturgy is “an action by which a group of people become something corporately which they had not been as a mere collection of individuals - a whole greater than the sum of its parts.” - Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World

Next week our Table Groups are launching into a focused discussion on liturgy and life based on You Are What You Love by James K.A. Smith.

One thing that’s great about this book is how accessible it is: you can listen to the audio book, watch chapter overview videos, or read a digital or physical edition! We have a few extra copies in the office so let us know if you’d like one 📚

Do you ever struggle to find the words to pray? The Book of Common Prayer assists us when we are unable to find words. On pages 642-645 you’ll find an index of prayers for many occasions like this one for when “In Times of Social Conflict or Distress”

Increase, O God, the spirit of neighborliness among us, that in peril we may uphold one another, in suffering tend to one another, and in homelessness, loneliness, or exile befriend one another. Grant us brave, enduring hearts that we may strengthen one another, until the disciplines and testings of these days are ended, and you again give peace in our time; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Happy New Year and 8th day of Christmas, Redeemer!

Some of you have mentioned a desire to commit to reading more scripture this year so we wanted to remind everyone that the Daily Office Lectionary is a great resource for that. There are readings for each morning and evening of the year which can be read as part of morning and evening prayer. Find it on page 738 of your BCP!

Merry second day of Christmas!
Today is the feast of St. Stephen. One of the first deacons of the church, he was appointed by the Apostles to care for widows and orphans. We can read about his ministry and martyrdom in Acts 6-7. Stephen was the Church’s first martyr 🌿 We commemorate his day with charitable acts like donating to our local food pantry or homeless ministry and sharing Christmas leftovers!
