A first-prize winner in the Carmel Chamber Music Society Competition, Dr. Kris Palmer is the director and founder of Black Cedar, a rare ensemble devoted to music for flute, cello, and guitar. Under her leadership, the trio has garnered multiple grants from the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music and the Zellerbach Family Foundation, commissioned four new works for this unique instrumental combination, released an album of new and re-discovered trios, and earned an invitation to the National Flute Association Convention. “You can easily see why this unique group has become a chamber music draw in the musically rich Bay Area,” writes James Manheim of AllMusic.com.

As a solo artist, Dr. Palmer made her New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 2001 to rave reviews as a winner in the Artists International Competition. The New York Concert Review called Palmer’s performance “incisive and expressive…particularly enchanting…with sensuous tone and pace.” Dr. Palmer is a second-prize winner in the National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition, a first-prize winner in the Ruth Burr Awards in Houston, a fourth-prize winner in the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Young Artist Competition in Texas, and a finalist in both the Hemphill-Wells Sorantin Young Artist Awards in Texas and the William C. Byrd Competition in Michigan. Her solo album, Versailles, is a compilation of her own arrangements of French Baroque works. The New York Concert Review says, “She is clearly among the few current performers on any instrument to fully understand the nature of French Baroque music.”

Mind Your Tongue! #sermon by Fr. Darren for Sunday Sept 16, 2018

There is a common thread throughout the readings today: the consequences of human speech. In the Gospel reading, St. Peter finds out that speaking out of turn and rebuking the Son of God is not a good idea. St. James, in his letter, warns of the cosmic dangers of an unbridled tongue. And Isaiah rejoices that “the Lord God has given [him] the tongue of a teacher, that [he] may know how to sustain the weary with a word.”
Now, when I was a child, I learned a saying: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” I have read that a version of that saying dates back to the year 1862. Another, much more recent saying I learned in my youth, went like this: “I’m rubber. You’re glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you!” Of course, neither saying is true. Words can, and do, hurt people. And verbal assaults do not, in fact, just bounce off their victims.

"Putting on the Whole Armor of God" - sermon by the Rev. Darren Miner for Sunday August 26, 2018

"The question St. Paul considers is “How should Christians confront evil?” Now, if you have picked up a newspaper or watched the news on TV recently, you have seen clear evidence that our country and our world are in serious trouble. But how often do we identify the wrongs of the world with real spiritual evil?

Today’s Epistle speaks of rulers, authorities, cosmic powers, and spiritual forces of evil. And in St. Paul’s day, it was thought that the forces of spiritual evil lived in the very air around us. I think it more likely that such forces of evil live, not in the atmosphere we breathe, but in our social institutions."

Of Seeds and Soil - sermon for Sunday June 17, 2018 by the Rev. Darren Miner at The Episcopal Church of the Incarnation

Today we hear two agricultural parables about seeds. Now, to be honest, I grew up in an agricultural area, but at heart I’m a city boy. So these parables don’t speak to me the way they would to people with a closer relationship to the land, like Jesus’ original audience. But some of you, I know, are gardeners, so maybe they will resonate with you.

We are told that after telling these parables to the crowds, Jesus had the habit of explaining their hidden meanings to the disciples in private. In these cases, we often find that the parables are, in fact, allegories. And the key to interpretation is to know how to decode the allegory. Today, unfortunately, we are not given the key to the code. So we are on our own regarding the correct interpretation!

Andrew Bergeron and Carmen Maret are performers, composers, educators and entrepreneurs from Grand Rapids, Michigan known as the Folias Duo.

The Folias Duo’s fifteen year performer/composer collaboration has taken this nomadic husband and wife duo to stages throughout the United States and around the globe including Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Argentina, and Chile. They have a fearless approach to developing new original compositions for flute and guitar, an expertise for arrangements of Argentine tango, and a passion for South American folk. About Folias’s performing and composing, Robert Schulslaper of Fanfare Magazine writes: “Carmen Maret and Andrew Bergeron are facile players… They draw on tango rhythms and melodies sometimes; at other times they write with a scenic sensitivity… mysterious… charming… evocative,” while Todd Gorman of American Record Guide calls Folias “daring in self-written music” and “a nice touch of originality.”
