"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”     NELSON MANDELA

Dear Trinity friends,

We are horrified by the violence and saddened for victims, their loved ones, Emanuel AME church and Charleston.  Let us stand in solidarity with them — and support ways of ending destructive violence in our world.  Let us remember we are all connected in the Body of Christ — 

The Trinity bell will toll ten times at noon today (nine victims, one perpetrator) — let us keep a moment of silence and pray to God for peace and comfort for survivors – and God’s wisdom and guidance as we move forward in our efforts to realize God’s reign on earth.  

One of the topics being addressed at the Episcopal General Convention in Salt Lake City is gun violence.  We have no idea what power and difference a resolution can make – even one with action steps.  Let us trust in God’s mercy, goodness and love.  Something has to change. 

Let it begin with you and me.    Rev. Cathi

The wolf will live with the lamb,
    and the leopard will lie down with the young goat;
    the calf and the young lion will feed together,
    and a little child will lead them.

Isaiah 11:6      Common English Bible (CEB)


 

Rev. Cathi is one of ten delegates from the Diocese of Iowa to General Convention (five lay, five clergy) in Salt Lake City. To follow stories and activities of the convention, go to:  http://www.generalconvention.org/     It is also possible to livestream the convention.  Thousands from The Episcopal Church are expected to gather for this triennial event.  A new Presiding Bishop will be elected.  Convention will explore "reimagining" the Episcopal Church (a task force has been working on this since 2012).



We are an Episcopal parish of the Diocese of Iowa, The Episcopal Church, and the world-wide Anglican Communion.  

We would love for you to come and worship with us Sundays, 10 AM

Sunday School is at 9:15 AM during the academic year.
