Summer 2018 – Staying Power

Bread of Life

Eating for Staying Power

“Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed. Lay aside immaturity, and live, and walk in the way of insight.”  Proverbs 9:1-6 To me, freshly baked bread is one of the best smells in the world. Even for those of us trying to stay away from “carbs,” it can...
Power of Connection

The Power of Connection

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 4:25-5:2 While growing up in the Catholic Church, when we complained about the various “hardships”...
S.T.E.P.S. to Maturity

S.T.E.P.S. to Maturity

…to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ. Ephesians 4:1-16 Theologian Brian...
Accomplishing More Than We Can Imagine

Accomplishing More Than We Can Imagine

Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. - Ephesians 3:14-21 As I look around the rather empty...

Staying Power – When Tattered and Worn

The Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church recently talked about Staying Power of our Church during the Standing Rock protests. He noticed the dozens and dozens of flags flying on the reservation of the Sioux Nation to represent those standing with the water...

Staying Power – That Was Then; This is Now

In him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in him, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit; this is the pledge of our inheritance toward redemption as God's own people, to the praise of his...

Staying Power – A Thorn in Our Sides

“My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:2-10 The Apostle Paul, who wrote letters to the Church in Corinth with much fervor – and sometimes with eloquence, is quoting what he heard God say to him. This was after Paul...

Staying Power and Potato Chips?

This I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:21-33 Last Sunday, about eighty Trinity parishioners fully engaged in...

Mark 4:30 Mustard Seed

Staying Power – Mark 4:30 – Parable of the Mustard Seed

"Jesus also said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all...

Transforming Generosity – Annual Pledge Campaign 2019

At the heart of the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” “All these things” refers to such things as food, clothing and other fundamental necessities of life, plus security, safety and moral clarity.

The priority that Jesus asks us to seek is God’s kingdom, God’s righteousness, the first thing about all else to which we are meant to direct our attention and efforts. That is also the first petition in the pattern of prayer that Jesus taught his followers to say: “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done….” We should notice that only after that priority is established are we encouraged to ask for our own needs in the form of daily bread. How would “generosity” be transformed if we remembered what Jesus is always calling us to do? We are indeed called to establish new priorities for ourselves and our communities of faith.

We ask you to give your presence, your money and your energy. We invite you this year to take the risk of believing the outcome is certain and to participate in the inexhaustible of God by confidently being on the journey to “Transforming Generosity“. Let us walk together on this Journey to Generosity so the glory of God might shine brighter through the mission and ministries of Trinity!
