February 2015
A growing family of faith that welcomes you into our midst!
From The Rev…
Do All Groundhogs Go to Heaven?
As we approach the February 2 holiday of the groundhog, the question begs to be asked… “Do all groundhogs go to
heaven?” According to tradition, we wait with baited breath for this cute little critter to emerge from his burrow. If it
is cloudy on this particular day, the good news is that spring will come early. However, if it is sunny, the groundhog will
be frightened by his shadow and quickly retreat back to its underground burrow. Hence, the bad news, the winter
weather will continue for six more weeks (and who could stand another six more weeks of the freakishly cold weather
which with we have been dealing???)
This gets me to thinking about God’s master plan for the groundhog, all groundhogs, in fact, all of the created order. Is
the call of the groundhog simply to live as a winter weather prophet or is there more for Punxsutawney Phil?
Many of us have had animals in our lives, who love us quite possibly more than our own family and friends do. Sure we
feed them, and groom them, and love them back, but our pets tend to love us unconditionally. When we lose our cat,
dog, bird, hermit crab or whatever animals we have been called to love and care for, the pain is palpable and the grief
is gut-wrenching.
Does God care for God’s creation as well as we human beings who are created in His very own image? ABSOLUTELY!!!
I know that the God in whom I believe is both just and merciful, filled with compassion and steadfast love. God has
given us the gift of Jesus the Christ in whom all things in heaven and on earth were created. Colossians 1:15-20 tells us
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 for in[h] him all things in heaven and on earth were
created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created
through him and for him. 17 He himself is before all things, and in[i] him all things hold together. 18 He is the head of the
body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him God was pleased to reconcile to
himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.
To me, this scripture brings a sense of hope and peace when confronted with the loss of the beloved animals in our
lives. Just as we are God’s beloved children, I whole-heartedly believe that the groundhog also has a prime place in
the Kingdom of Heaven awaiting him when God calls him home.
All thanks and glory and honor and power be to the God of all creation-even and especially groundhogs!

A Special Thanks...
Thanks to the 8 Elders and 4 Deacons who came out to support the Presbytery of Scioto Valley Partners in Education event
that took place on Saturday, January 10, 2015.
Thanks to all who attended the Session Retreat on Saturday, January 24, 2015. It was a great winter day spent in getting to
know one another a little bit better as well as planning for our DPC future together!
Thanks to all who made my very first Annual Congregational Meeting a successful one! I appreciate the Staff, Elders and
Deacons in preparing the materials for the meeting. Many thanks to the Finance Committee and to Communications Committee as well as the members of DPC supporting all that we do in Education, Worship, Community and Mission!

DPC Leadership: Elders and Deacons
DPC is off to a great start this New Year 2015. We have an outstanding leadership teams in our Session and Board of Deacons. It might be helpful to understand a little more about what they do for our community...check out what our Book of
Order says about Elders and Deacons:
G-2.0301 Ruling Elder Defined
As there were in Old Testament times elders for the government of the people, so the New Testament church provided persons with particular gifts to share in discernment of God’s Spirit and governance of God’s people. Accordingly, congregations
should elect persons of wisdom and maturity of faith, having demonstrated skills in leadership and being compassionate in
spirit. Ruling elders are so named not because they “lord it over” the congregation (Matt. 20:25), but because they are chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and
life. Ruling elders, together with teaching elders, exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline and
have responsibilities for the life of a congregation as well as the whole church, including ecumenical relationships. When
elected by the congregation, they shall serve faithfully as members of the session. When elected as commissioners to higher
councils, ruling elders participate and vote with the same authority as teaching elders, and they are eligible for any office.
G-2.0201 Deacon Defined
The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of
Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or
structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love,
sincere compassion, and sound judgment should be chosen for this ministry.
Many thanks to our Elders and Deacons as they continue to share their gifts so generously with the DPC congregation!

Confirmation Process Has Begun! …Show Your Support!
Four wonderful participants are attending the newly formed confirmation class which meets on Sundays from 4 – 5:30 PM. Eighth graders, Elise Nelson (Karr Middle School), Ben Sarver (Sells Middle
School), Grayson Troxell (Hilliard Weaver Middle School), and ninth grader, Erin Sundheimer (Coffman
High School) come together each Sunday from now until May to understand God’s story and how they
are a part of that story, to understand what church means and to discern whether belonging to the
church as a member is what they want to do. This process is fun but serious, difficult yet easy, a beginning not an end…and the church family
Is expected and invited to show their support of these four decision-making youth. Talk with them,
send them a card, visit the class, text, email or call. Remember, you, as their church family have promised to raise them in the way of the Lord.
“Souper Bowl of Caring” is dedicated to tackling all of the issues that exist in your communities, including poverty, hunger and homeless
Did you know?
Nearly 50 million Americans live in poverty? [1]
1 in 6 Americans face hunger every day? [1]
More than 630,000 people in the United States are homeless?
23% of those struggling went to college? [1]
Or that 16 million children live in food insecure households?
Since 1990, a youth-led movement called “SOUPER BOWL of Caring” has been dedicated to helping hungry and hurting people around the world. Again this year the youth at Dublin Presbyterian Church will
be at the sanctuary doors after worship on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1 st, with soup caldrons in hand
to collect your gift. Please give and help fight hunger in our community…gifts given will go to the Dublin
Food Pantry to help in their efforts of feeding the hungry in Dublin.
A simple prayer to say: "Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those
who are without even a bowl of soup to eat". Amen.
While your buying those snacks for the Super Bowl, throw some change (or $1’s)
in your pocket for Souper Bowl.

The Belhar Confession
Have any of you ever heard of “The Belhar Confession”? No? Don’t be embarrassed – most people haven’t.
Simply stated, The Belhar Confession is being voted on to become part of the Presbyterian Book of Confessions.
If it passes it will become the first addition in twenty years to our Book of Confessions. Our presbytery, the Presbytery of Scioto Valley, will vote on this inclusion on February 17th. The Belhar Confession was written in 1982 in
Belhar, South Africa (a small suburb of Cape Town) which is how it got its name.
The Worship & Music Committee would like to share the confession with you because it is currently a “hot topic”
in our presbytery and we want our congregation to be well informed as to what is taking place in the life of our
church and presbytery.
Every Sunday, in many of our Presbyterian congregations, we reaffirm our faith using all or part of one of our
confessions—often the Apostles’ Creed or the Nicene Creed, or A Brief Statement of Faith. The first part of the
constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is the Book of Confessions, which contains 11 formal statements
of faith structured as creeds, confessions and catechisms.
Submitted by Peggy Holcomb and Sharon Hayes on behalf of the Worship and Music Committee
Confession of Belhar
September 1986 1
1. We believe in the triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who gathers, protects and cares for the
church through Word and Spirit. This, God has done since the beginning of the world and will do to the
2. We believe in one holy, universal Christian church, the communion of saints called from the entire
human family.
We believe
• that Christ's work of reconciliation is made manifest in the church as the community of believers
who have been reconciled with God and with one another;
• that unity is, therefore, both a gift and an obligation for the church of Jesus Christ; that through the
working of God's Spirit it is a binding force, yet simultaneously a reality which must be earnestly pursued and sought: one which the people of God must continually be built up to attain;
 that this unity must become visible so that the world may believe that separation, enmity and hatred between people and groups is sin which Christ has already conquered, and accordingly that
anything which threatens this unity may have no place in the church and must be resisted;
February 2015 Newsletter
page 9
that this unity of the people of God must be manifested and be active in a variety of ways: in that we
love one another; that we experience, practice and pursue community with one another; that we are
obligated to give ourselves willingly and joyfully to be of benefit and blessing to one another; that we
share one faith, have one calling, are of one soul and one mind; have one God and Father, are filled
with one Spirit, are baptized with one baptism, eat of one bread and drink of one cup, confess one
name, are obedient to one Lord, work for one cause, and share one hope; together come to know the
height and the breadth and the depth of the love of Christ; together are built up to the stature of Christ,
to the new humanity; together know and bear one another's burdens, thereby fulfilling the law of
Christ that we need one another and up build one another, admonishing and comforting one another;
that we suffer with one another for the sake of righteousness; pray together; together serve God in this
world; and together fight against all which may threaten or hinder this unity;
• that this unity can be established only in freedom and not under constraint; that the variety of spiritual gifts, opportunities, backgrounds, convictions, as well as the various languages and cultures, are by
virtue of the reconciliation in Christ, opportunities for mutual service and enrichment within the one
visible people of God;
 that true faith in Jesus Christ is the only condition for membership of this church;
Therefore, we reject any doctrine
• which absolutizes either natural diversity or the sinful separation of people in such a way that this
absolutization hinders or breaks the visible and active unity of the church, or even leads to the establishment of a separate church formation;
• which professes that this spiritual unity is truly being maintained in the bond of peace while believers of the same confession are in effect alienated from one another for the sake of diversity and in despair of reconciliation;
 which denies that a refusal earnestly to pursue this visible unity as a priceless gift is sin;
 which explicitly or implicitly maintains that descent or any other human or social factor should be a
consideration in determining membership of the church.
3. We believe
• that God has entrusted the church with the message of reconciliation in and through Jesus Christ;
that the church is called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, that the church is called
blessed because it is a peacemaker, that the church is witness both by word and by deed to
the new heaven and the new earth in which righteousness dwells.
February 2015 Newsletter
page 10
• that God’s lifegiving Word and Spirit has conquered the powers of sin and death, and therefore also
of irreconciliation and hatred, bitterness and enmity, that God’s lifegiving Word and Spirit will enable
the church to live in a new obedience which can open new possibilities of life for society and the world;
• that the credibility of this message is seriously affected and its beneficial work obstructed when it is
proclaimed in a land which professes to be Christian, but in which the enforced separation of people on
a racial basis promotes and perpetuates alienation, hatred and enmity;
• that any teaching which attempts to legitimate such forced separation by appeal to the gospel, and
is not prepared to venture on the road of obedience and reconciliation, but rather, out of prejudice,
fear, selfishness and unbelief, denies in advance the reconciling power of the gospel, must be considered ideology and false doctrine.
Therefore, we reject any doctrine
 which, in such a situation sanctions in the name of the gospel or of the will of God the forced separation of people on the grounds of race and color and thereby in advance obstructs and weakens
the ministry and experience of reconciliation in Christ.
4. We believe
• that God has revealed himself as the one who wishes to bring about justice and true peace among
• that God, in a world full of injustice and enmity, is in a special way the God of the destitute, the poor
and the wronged
• that God calls the church to follow him in this; for God brings justice to the oppressed and gives
bread to the hungry;
• that God frees the prisoner and restores sight to the blind;
• that God supports the downtrodden, protects the stranger, helps orphans and widows and blocks
the path of the ungodly;
• that for God pure and undefiled religion is to visit the orphans and the widows in their suffering;
 that God wishes to teach the church to do what is good and to seek the right;
• that the church must therefore stand by people in any form of suffering and need, which implies,
among other things, that the church must witness against and strive against any form of injustice, so
that justice may roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream;
 that the church as the possession of God must stand where the Lord stands, namely against
injustice and with the wronged; that in following Christ the church must witness against all the powerful and privileged who selfishly seek their own interests and thus control and harm others.
February 2015 Newsletter
page 11
Therefore, we reject any ideology
 which would legitimate forms of injustice and any doctrine which is unwilling to resist such an ideology in the name of the gospel.
5. We believe that, in obedience to Jesus Christ, its only head, the church is called to confess and to do
all these things, even though the authorities and human laws might forbid them and punishment and
suffering be the consequence.
Jesus is Lord.
To the one and only God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be the honor and the glory for ever and ever.
