Choir Chairs, Prayer Books and Hymnals, Oh My!
Since the completion of our Sanctuary and choir room renovations at the end of last year, we have received numerous requests from parishioners about ways they can help support this exciting period of growth at St. Anne’s. As a result, we have identified the following areas of opportunity:
• Sponsor a Choir Chair to Honor Someone: $150—Your dedication will be acknowledged on an engraved plaque that will be placed a chair, and you will be recognized as a sponsor.
• Sponsor a Choir Chair: Any amount, no dedication: You will be recognized as a sponsor.
• Dedicate a Copy of a Prayer Book or Hymnal (1982 Hymnal and/or LEVAS): $25—Your dedication will be recognized on a book plate inside the front cover. (N.B. The need is greatest for the LEVAS Hymnals)
If you would like to participate, simply complete the form in the Narthex, and place it in the offering basket or drop it off in the Parish Office. In the memo portion of your check (written to St. Anne’s), please indicate if your contribution is for a chair or book (or both).

Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 7 PM – 9 PM at Bookmarks, 634 W. 4th Street, Winston-Salem
How did post-Reconstruction residential segregation by race proceed through legislative tactics? Did all white residents of Winston-Salem see neighborhood segregation as serving their best interests? Join us for a public talk by Dr. Elizabeth Herbin-Triant, Assistant Professor of History at UMass Lowell and author of the new book, “Threatening Property: Race, Class, and Campaigns to Legislate Jim Crow Neighborhoods” (Columbia University Press, 2019). A central focus of the book is the city of Winston-Salem, which Dr. Herbin-Triant researched extensively.
Co-sponsored by: New Winston Museum, WFU Department of History, Spatial Justice Studio at the Center for Design Innovation, WFU School of Law, and Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
The book will be for sale, and a book signing will follow the event. From the dust jacket: “Early twentieth-century North Carolina saw a backlash against the economic successes of African Americans, including campaigns for residential segregation laws like those in South Africa. In “Threatening Property,” Elizabeth Herbin-Triant investigates these campaigns, showing that they exposed a fault line between the interests of middle-class and elite whites. Rather than uniting whites around the idea of segregated neighborhoods, these campaigns ultimately failed and, in doing so, defined the limits of Jim Crow.”
Friday, April 12, 9 – 4 pm, The Enterprise Conference and Banquet Center, 1922 S Martin Luther King Junior Drive, Winston-Salem – Tickets by Eventbrite
Please join the Spatial Justice Studio @ CDI in a one day workshop which seeks to explore Spatial Justice in our community. Specific topics to be included in the workshop include:
• What is Spatial Justice?,
• Winston-Salem’s past spatial (in)justices,
• Current community efforts focused on achieving spatial justice (e.g. gentrification, food insecurity, economic mobility, etc.) and
• Discussion on next steps for advancing a more equitable future for the community.
This one-day workshop seeks to bring together a diverse group of invested community members to learn, debate and discuss the concept of Spatial Justice and its applicability to the community. Please contact Russell Smith, Ph.D., Faculty Lead for the Spatial Justice Studio at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions. Parking is available on site.
April 15 – Whitaker Square Gourmet Pizza, 1981 N. Peacehaven Road 11am – 10 pm
Join us for our April Edition of Bite With Pride … This month we partner with Whitaker Square Gourmet Pizza. 15% of all orders – eat in, pick up, or delivery from 11AM to 10PM will be donated to Pride Winston Salem. What a delicious way to support our community.
April 25 – The Faith & Justice Committee’s 2018-19 Lunch and Speaker Series will continue at 12:15 p.m. in Colhoun A at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. The program, “Unlocking the Truth in the Justice System,” will be presented by Mark Rabil, Clinical Professor of Law at Wake Forest University and Director of the Innocence & Justice Clinic at Wake Forest School of Law.
In these days with cries of “fake news” and an increasing awareness of our biases, do the methods of innocence clinics provide effective means of determining “what happened?” What are the lessons of the more than 2,300 exonerations of innocent people wrongfully convicted by U.S. courts? Is there hope? Bring your own lunch. Beverages will be provided. All are welcome.
Don’t forget to drop off canned tuna, chicken, and fruit cups into the basket in the connector for our friends at Friends Food Pantry. Thanks for supporting this local ministry and the many folks served by it.
