Hello Trinity Family,

As we approach Reformation Day, I can’t help but compare this year’s holiday season to years past. Over the next ten weeks we will celebrate Reformation, All Saints’, Thanksgiving, Christmas, all during a call process and national political events! But this year, these services will be coordinated over Zoom meetings and look very different from years prior. Today’s hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness” arranged by Larry Shackley centers us back to God’s unchanging love and steadfastness during this time. It reminds me of my gratitude for the people who have stayed in my life for many years, throughout changing careers and all of life’s circumstances. One musical friend of mine, composer and guitarist Johnny Clifford, recently shared a framed poem with me written by his uncle, Charles Bourquin. This poem will be my personal hymn of steadfastness as the weather gets colder, the days get shorter, and our staff prepares for the upcoming church holidays.

Poem text:
Courage! What if the snows are deep,
And what if the hills are long and steep,
And the days are short, and the nights are long
And the good are weak and the bad are strong?
Courage! The snow is a field for play,
And the longest hill has a well worn way.
There are songs that shorten the longest night,
There’s a day when wrong shall be ruled by right.
So Courage! Courage! ‘Tis not far
From a plodded path to a shining star!
Blessings,
Angela

Hello Trinity Family,

Please join us in musically celebrating Reformation Day by submitting a video for our recorded service on October 25th! I welcome all of us to submit videos singing A Mighty Fortress. I have made a rehearsal video explaining how to record available HERE. All are welcome to contribute! The hymn text is displayed in the video, so all you need are a recording device, a playback device, headphones, and a smile. Most phones and computers work fine for recording. If you would prefer to print out the lyrics, the hymn text is available HERE
Please submit videos to this link HERE by Monday October 19th. If you have any questions, please reach out to me or Anita.
Blessings,

Hello Trinity Family,
This past Sunday, Pastor Kern’s sermon resonated with me. Much in our lives has changed over the past year. As I have been going through the motions of a typical church musician’s fall, I can’t help but dwell on the differences in my life and in my faith in the past twelve months. Musically speaking, my life feels like a reharmonized hymn. The melody is the same, but the rhythm and tonality have kept me on my toes. This week I offer Joel Raney’s arrangement of “It is Well With My Soul”. This is an old hymn, but this arrangement offers different chords and rhythms that I think complement this year’s unique challenges.
The link to the video is HERE.
Here is the hymn text for your reflection:
When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Blessings,
Angela

From Pastor Kern

Friends,
Our weekly worship is recorded on Thursday morning to allow time for editing and production, which means that late breaking news often unfolds before you receive this link on Saturday.  
Since this week’s service was recorded, our country and indeed the world, has been rocked by the news that President Trump and Melania, along with numerous others, have been infected with the Covid-19 virus.  
I exhort you then, to offer this or a similar prayer during the prelude this morning:
Lord God, look with mercy upon all your children in the world who suffer from the Covid-19 virus – those who are ill, those who have died, and those who grieve.  We pray especially this day for our President, Donald and his wife Melania, and all who may have been infected with them.  Bring healing to all so the world may see your glory. In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.


Grace and Peace to you! Here is our video for the 18th Sunday After Pentecost. This week also includes an anthem from the Vocal Choir, accompanied by Marilyn C. on handbells!

Adult Forum on Zoom
David K will continue a study on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1 – 7:29) for the next few Sundays at 9:30 am.  Please email David for the Zoom link.

“The Sermon on the Mount brings together a lot of Jesus’ moral and ethical teachings in one place and I’ve never spent more than a session on it as part of a larger study of the book of Matthew.  So what I’m planning is a deeper dive into the part of Jesus’ teaching that makes us squirm and explore what it’s saying to us today.”

Hello Trinity Family,
For today’s meditation I offer “In Christ Alone” arranged by Larry Shackley. We have a busy season coming up. From going through our call process to celebrating old holidays in a new way, we have many reasons to worry. However, we have many more reasons to stay hopeful and continue to be God’s hands in the world.

Here is the Hymn text for your reflection.
In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
Blessings,
Angela
