Like the Parable of the Barren Fig Tree, we sometimes need manure so that we can bear fruit again. Many times, we can’t see our own bubbles, the structures and patterns in which we have enclosed ourselves until someone else shows us. For these and many other reasons, we exist within communities. We can help each other, even when we can’t see that we need help.
We all need food, water, shelter, Read more
I often think about all the people who have made a positive impact on the world through their words, actions, courage, and big hearts. I think about how they started their journeys alone or with a few people who believed in their vision. I think about how their journeys remained difficult, but they continued to move forward on their paths to spread peace, love, equality, and justice to the people around them.
I think about how Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and his family Read more
Throughout my life, the Lord has led me from fear, confusion, drug addiction, and jail. The Lord led me out of homelessness and into housing, from being lost spiritually to the salvation I have found at Trinity’s 12:05 service.

When I was young, I felt the warm comforting love from my parents, Read more

Among the challenges of rejuvenating the nave of Trinity Church are the sheer size and height of the interior space in the 173-year-old Neo-Gothic structure. Construction team members figured out a way, through a complex structure of scaffolding, to inspect and repair the ceiling and the high windows and walls, and recently gave Trinity Vicar, the Rev. Phillip Jackson, a “high-level” tour.Read more
When I first started the Brown Bag Lunch Assistant role, I remember that a volunteer, Bill Patrikos, mentioned to me that “hunger doesn’t take a holiday.” Those five words have continuously echoed in my head during my time at Trinity. The impact, the pain, and the stories that are contained in these words remind us that we are all human. Imagine with me—that intense feeling of hunger or feeling unsafe, wondering “when am I getting home?” For many people that moment is every day; it’s their Read more
