Moment for Trinity – Tuesday September 7, 2021

Here is the video for the Trinity moment for this week:

We continue to hold Bev and Bernie Wiens and their family in our prayers as Bev continues chemotherapy treatments; they so appreciate the cards, food, thoughts and prayer people have given and say thank you.

We hold Wilson Akinwale in our prayers of celebration as he is ordained in the Anglican Church; the service is at 3.00pm on Saturday 11th September at St George’s, Crescentwood. Instructions (attached to this email) to view Wilson Akinwale’s ordination ceremony at St. George’s Crescentwood on Saturday, September 11 at 3 pm (you can join as early as 2:50 pm).

Thank you to all who came and helped clean up the church today! We had so much fun and worked hard to get things all spruced up, dusted off, vacuumed up, rearranged, and washed up! Watch the video for a few examples!

On September 30, people all across Canada will wear orange shirts to remember and honour Indigenous children who were taken from their communities and families to residential schools. This Orange Shirt Day is also the first observance of a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. For settler Christians in particular, this is a time when we can reflect on our role in colonialism and the residential school system, and our ongoing responsibility to make reparations. More information is coming and you can click on the United Church link for ideas.
Indigenous Ministries and Justice at The United Church of Canada encourages everyone to participate in Orange Shirt Day! 

A reminder that we continue to collect fruit, granola bars and juice boxes that are delivered to West Broadway Community Ministry. The cart is outside for donations Sunday to Friday mornings from 9-1pm. Call the church at 204-269-1632 to arrange alternate times to drop off donations.

Bomber parking and crosswalks: a huge thank you to all who have volunteered to help out at the Bomber games for the new season!

Scripture for Sunday September 12, 2021: Proverbs 1:20-33; Psalm 19; James 3:1-12; Mark 8:27-38.

We are looking for someone to help out with the payroll duties for Trinity. Everything is now online and tasks are twice a month. Please be in touch with Gerta or the office if you would like to help out or know someone who has these skills or might want to learn. 

All of our programs (except the Walkers) are taking a break so everyone can enjoy being outside (and not at our computers!) and will resume in the week or so.

Trinity Walkers: September  7th & 9th. Let’s  walk the new Leaf Gardens in Assiniboine Park.  The gardens are starting to take on the look of fall. I will  be parking in the Leaf parking lot. The following week September 14th and 16th let’s walk Assiniboine Forest. Meet me in the parking lot at the corner of Chalfont and Grant.

All  walks start at 9:30. Please phone me it you are able to join.  I don’t want to start walking without you. Also, let me know where do you enjoy walking.

Sermon by Phone: Listen to the recording of Sunday worship each week by calling a local phone number (204 410 1384); please share this information with your friends who don’t have internet access; the recording is uploaded each week on Thursday and will be available until the following Wednesday. 

Scripture to ponder for the week: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8   “Everything on earth has its own time and its own season. There is a time for birth and death, planting and reaping, for killing and healing, destroying and building, for crying and laughing, weeping and dancing, for throwing stones and gathering stones, embracing and parting. There is a time for finding and losing, keeping and giving, for tearing and sewing, listening and speaking. There is also a time for love and hate, for war and peace.

Prayer: Creator God, grant us the wisdom to respect and care for Earth as you would, so all creation is cherished.  Amen

Know that we are praying for each one of you as you find your way through this time. If you have comments, suggestions, or any thoughts about worship or how you’re doing, please be in touch. Trinity is here for you and we will respond. May you know God’s presence and peace with you as we continue to move through this new reality,


Following a meeting on June 29, the co-chairs of the Board sent a letter to the congregation regarding the Province of Manitoba going into “Code Orange”. From the Executive: “The consensus was that these changes are not significant enough to warrant opening up our church for indoor or outdoor services, at this time…Your health and safety are our top priority and we are not willing to jeopardize that…We look forward to the virtual Services that will be provided by Trinity, in association with Westminster, Spirit Path, Transcona Memorial and UC in Meadowood…We will wait and see what any new announcements from the Province may bring…”
