All Souls & All Saints Day with Pine UMC

SUNDAY, NOV. 1, 2020:
This Sunday, we observed All Souls & All Saints Day and celebrated Communion. We continue to remember and uplift those who have passed on this year.

The Scripture Readings were from Revelation 7:9-17 and Matthew 5:1-12, accompanied by these Reflection Prompts for our collective Message:

1. These two readings may articulate God’s vision for us, humanity, and Creation. Do these readings challenge you, comfort you, or invoke any other feelings or responses? How might these readings speak to us of All Souls & All Saints Day?
2. What messages have you received from these scripture readings in the past?How does reading these two scripture readings together change their message? What messages do you gain from them today?
3. How is this text relevant for us today? How might it inform how we move through the world as people of faith and in our ministry?

Pine UMC Worship: Rooted & Rising, Pt. 3

THIS SUNDAY, OCT. 25, 2020:
We continued on in our theme for the month (details below). The text we focused on was 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8. Video to deepen our theme was: https://youtu.be/X5H80Nhmn20. And during our Offering time, we viewed this: https://youtu.be/RY2fr13ibFc.

THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF OCTOBER:
The Reconciling Ministries Network, of which Pine UMC is a part, is joining in their new campaign - Rooted & Rising: RMN’s Commitment to Center Intersectional Justice and Equity. We will also be framing our worship around Paul’s letters this month. Paul's writings have been historically used by some Christians to exclude and perpetuate discrimination against marginalized people, such as women and LGBTQ+ people. Can we reclaim these texts in ways that are counter-cultural and in ways that resist the status quo?

During this month, we will explore themes of how the many identities each of us carry can inform our experiences of oppression, privilege, and liberation. Especially as we prepare ourselves for November elections.

For more info you can view campaign info here: https://rmnetwork.org/rootedandrising/ and for more about “intersectionality” go here: https://rmnetwork.org/what-is-intersectionality

We will view some of this material for the month AND we will be revisiting Pine’s Reconciling Statement, written in the early-90s, for a much needed update and recommitment.

"According to a study from GLAAD, over 80% of Americans don't personally know someone who's transgender. That means most people learn about trans people from the ways they're depicted in movies and TV. From executive producer Laverne Cox and director Sam Feder comes Disclosure, a documentary that chronicles over 100 years of trans representation on screen, from silent film to Dog Day Afternoon, The 40-Year-Old Virgin to Pose."

Happy #NationalComingOutDay2020!

Happy #NationalComingOutDay! Pine United Methodist Church, San Francisco celebrates all sexual and gender identities, questioning and those who are coming out to themselves. We are all fully known and fully loved by the Creator. As a prayer, we lift up this song "For Everyone Born" - sung by our queer friends - as we work for collective justice, joy, compassion, and peace in the world.

[Video Description: Two Asian American Queer-identifying Christians playing piano and singing the hymn, "For Everyone Born (A Place at the Table)"]

Song Lyrics:
Verse 1
For everyone born, a place at the table,
for everyone born, clean water and bread,
a shelter, a space, a safe place for growing,
for everyone born, a star overhead,

[CHORUS]
and God will delight when we are creators
of justice and joy, compassion and peace:
yes, God will delight when we are creators
of justice, justice and joy!

Verse 3
For young and for old, a place at the table,
a voice to be heard, a part in the song,
the hands of a child in hands that are wrinkled,
for young and for old, the right to belong,

[CHORUS]

Verse 5
For everyone born, a place at the table,
to live without fear, and simply to be,
to work, to speak out, to witness and worship,
for everyone born, the right to be free,

[CHORUS]

Soko Bukai World Communion Sunday ft. SF Senior and Disability Action

THIS SUNDAY, OCT. 4, 2020:
Soko Bukai (historically Japanese American Christian churches of San Francisco), of which Pine UMC is a part, gathered together for our annual joint World Communion Sunday Service. We were pleased to have with us as our Presenters, Ligia Montano and Jessica Lehman from San Francisco Senior and Disability Action (SDA). We learned about care-rationing and how we can respond in ways that uplift and advocate those who are often marginalized by our healthcare system - seniors and people with disabilities.

To take action alongside SF SDA, you can:
1. Send a letter to Kaiser for transparency and to stop care rationing: https://actionnetwork.org/letters/kaiser-stop-care-rationing/
2. Check out this list of many ways to take action and to get the word out about this campaign: https://docs.google.com/document/d/12AUFCBUi5s7Q2Vg2EKJF0YmhHNAoElCFl6u-ojvQPdA/edit
3. Protect Voting Rights for those in Long-Term Care Facilities: https://www.actionnetwork.org/forms/take-action-voting-in-long-term-care-facilities
4. And/Or make a Donation to SDA: https://sdaction.org/support-sda/

Three churches of different denominations were present: Pine UMC, Christ United Presbyterian Church (CUPC), and Sei Ko Kai (Christ Episcopal Church). In lieu of Communion over Zoom, we participated in an Agape Meal.

General information

Pine United Methodist Church holds Japanese-language services at 9:45 a.m. and English-language services at 11 a.m. on Sundays. Pine UMC, acknowledged as the "mother" church of all Japanese American Methodist Churches in the U.S., was formally founded in 1886 when Dr. Merriman Harris arrived from Japan, having been appointed Superintendent of the Japanese Missions by the Methodist California Annual Conference. However, the true beginnings of Pine UMC can be traced back to the 1870s, when a group of young men from Japan began to meet in the basement of the Chinese Mission in San Francisco (at the corner of Washington and Stockton). Under the guidance of Dr. Otis Gibson, then the Superintendent of the Chinese Mission, the young men met regularly to study the Bible and English. In 1877, this small group formed the Japanese Gospel Society, or Fukuin Kai. Out of the Japanese Gospel Society evolved not only Pine UMC but all Japanese Christian churches in the United States. This early period is called the Anagura Jidai, or "Cellar Days," and launched the history of Pine UMC.
