WeAreTrinity aims to celebrate all that God is doing in our midst. It is a way of capturing who we are, in all of our wonderful diversity and uniqueness, and centering us on a common mission that will take us into the future.
When I look upon your faces, I see a sea of possibility. I am in awe of you. You teach me what it means to be a Christian. You teach me what it means to be faithful to Jesus Christ even when life gets unbearably tough.
I see a sea of possibility because of the way we, as a parish, hope to be a place where all God’s children are embraced. You come with different ideas about God, different ideas about politics, different ideas about gender, sexuality, and identity. And believe it or not, no one has ever thrown a punch in the service of being right. I see a sea of possibility because you model for the world how love and common mission can transcend the divisiveness of the world around us. I am in awe of you, because you teach me how to be a better human being. You teach me what it means to be faithful to Jesus Christ even when the world seems to thrive on disunity and division.
The mission of Trinity on the Hill is to share the power and joy of God’s love, to fully embrace all God’s children, and to respond to the needs of our community and the world in the spirit of Jesus Christ.
If this is a mission you believe in, I hope and pray that you will be frivolously generous, that we might have the resources to live into the future God is calling us, which is bright, full of light and hope. Friends, WeAreTrinity. What a gift to the world you are, and I’m happy to be here with you.
