Season of Lent, 2014
April 11, 2014
Trinity News and Calendar
Lent has been a time of Worship, reflection, gathering, and prayer. . Enjoying Wednesday evening suppers and worship,we have contemplated "Being Made in God's Image" and found it challenging. Meals, conversations, and worship have fed us. Thanks to all who prepared for these Wednesday evenings.
As Christians around the world approach Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter, we hope you will be in worship at Trinity or elsewhere. This is THE focal point of the Christian year--talking about and pondering in prayer that Jesus faced HAILED entry into Jerusalem. being TRIED as threat to the empire then DEATH on the Cross..pause and consider how this is a time when the truth of Easter and the Risen Christ seek us, but is not an "easter egg hunt time."
.Pastor Kris and Kathi Johnson journeyed, with your gifts and prayers, to Bigonet Haiti to take part in the Trinity Lutheran -St. James Episcopal (Mpls)- Bonne Nouelle (Good News) Episcopal (Bigonet, Haiti) partnership. It's a mouthful, but fills the hearts and relationships of the churches and areas represented. Kathi and Pastor Kris will be sending more info, and giving more insight over the coming months. We are hoping the congregation can support restoring the roof for the Haiti Church, providing funding for small loans ($100 and under) to families in Bigonet who want to start small businesses, and for school desks. Please send an offering to Trinity (marked Haiti)---and if you are called by God to give to one of these specifically, let us know by writing a note on the check.
