All are welcome!

The Two Thousand Year-Old Book Club, or Why Bible Study Matters

A lot of people think Episcopalians have no real relationship with Scripture.  Because we have historically spent more time with our prayer books than our bibles, there is a misperception that we do not value Scripture or at least the the Bible is subordinate to our...
Mathhew 28:20

“Remember, I am with you always…”

“Remember,” Jesus says at the end of Matthew’s Gospel – his final words to his disciples – “Remember, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” And that is a promise – a promise to remember always, to hold on to, amidst the changes which are all around us. What doesn’t change is God’s faithfulness.

Tending the Holy

This past Sunday we did some planning and training together in the sanctuary for our various lay ministries in worship.  Today I want to discuss particularly the work of the greeters/ushers, and acolytes/servers.  There was some Holy Chaos going on as we worked...
Trinity

We should at all times, and in all places, give thanks to thee, O Lord…

The Times They are a-Changin’

My dear friends in Christ, Aside from sporting pink hair, I am not a person naturally drawn to rash action.  I have ever been a late-bloomer, slow-mover, and moderate thinker.   Anyone among my friends and family will tell you that in my private life I sometimes...
Slow down

Something to think about: slow down!

Slow Down! This is probably not the first thing you expected to hear from your new Priest-in-Charge. An unusual amount of activity going on at Trinity for a parish in the height of summer. The energy and excitement here are palpable, and it’s great! I suppose there...

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!
