The book group has selected C.S. Lewis’ classic “The Screwtape Letters” as our next read. It’s a darkly funny story where Screwtape, a devil who holds an administrative post in the bureaucracy (“Lowerarchy”) of Hell, acts as a mentor, writing letters of advice to his nephew Wormwood, an inexperienced (and incompetent) tempter.
Through the letters, Lewis gives us a series of lessons in the importance of taking a deliberate role in Christian faith by portraying a typical human life, with all its temptations and failings, seen from devils’ viewpoints.
Pick up a copy and join in the discussion via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 25 for their next discussion
Join us on Tuesday, July 28, 7 p.m. on Zoom as we meet to discuss Rob Bell’s controversial book, Love Wins: A Book about Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived. Zondervan Publishing refused to publish it back in 2011 – but is it heretical? Or is it a new view of our relationship with God?
Would you like a visit from a Holy Trinity friend? We’re scheduling one-on-one “porch visits” to people who would like to see a familiar face – using safe social distancing, of course! Let the office know you’re interested and someone from our Pastoral Care team will be in touch.
The Holy Trinity Book Club is a real thing now! Jim and Cathy Lozer, Lynda Adams and Lynne Homeyer met and we’ve decided to meet by Zoom on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.
Our book for Tuesday, June 23, is The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity, by William P. Young. See it on Amazon here. Jim and Cathy really recommend seeing the movie version as well, which is available on Amazon Prime video for $3.99.
This year, people are hurting. They need help with basics like food more than ever.
So, our Outreach Committee decided to designate our Easter offering to be shared 50/50 between two food pantries: the Family Network of Wyoming where we donate food and paper goods each month, and The Green Apple where we will (someday again) volunteer.
Hallelujah! Together we sent in $3,305 (in addition to our regular pledge donations), and that has now been split and checks mailed to the two pantries. Let us bless the Lord!
This year, our Easter message is Alleluia Anyway! And Father Peter put together a great video of so many of us recording that message!
Now, he’s asking us to stop for a second or two during our “daily grind” and video ourselves and our families saying our final proclamation for our Sunday services: Let us bless the Lord! He plans to “drop” the videos into our Facebook Live Sunday services as long as we can’t be worshipping in person.
Record a very short video (3-5 seconds) of you and/or your family proclaiming, “Let us bless the Lord!“
