Moment from Trinity – June 16, 2020

Here is the short video to go along with the Trinity Tuesday Moment for June 9, 2020:

The virtual service for this coming Sunday, June 21 will be led by Reverend Paul Campbell.   Paul is also on-call for pastoral needs during Elizabeth’s study leave and vacation time. The link for the YouTube video of Rev. Campbell’s service will be distributed later in the week. We are thankful for the wide congregation, well beyond our Trinity family, who watch these video messages from Trinity.

Growth During COVID Separations:
How is your garden growing?   Remember that nursery rhyme?   Well at Trinity, the Community Garden is growing very well. It serves as a metaphor to the congregation and the community: “Come grow with us at Trinity”.

Imagine! Almost fifty plots are being actively cultivated in the Trinity Garden. Beth Anderson has been leading the project and she comments: “The gardens provide more than the food that is grown. It gives the gardeners a sense of community, of purpose, of belonging and of fulfillment”.

You may not have a garden per se that you tend. You likely have a plant that you water, or some constructive activity that “grows” as you progress with it. Last week, in her Trinity Tuesday Moment, Elizabeth described Joanne’s quilting project. She included a picture from Joanne showing how her project had grown to a beautifully completed quilt. Such an important metaphor for us in this time of separation and caution!

We hope you have a ‘project’ or an activity that provides a creative outlet and helps you ’grow’ despite our caution during the COVID crisis.

God of Growth and Change, we seek your guidance as we address the changes occurring in our time. Be with us as we grow in our culture and in our personal lives and help us to be ministers of hope and change to others.  Amen

Elizabeth leaves us with this blessing:
“Peace and blessings of music, words, creativity, and struggle as we continue to move through these times”.
