George MacDonald Book Club

Sunday, April 28 at 6:45pm


Please join us for our second book SIR GIBBIE by George MacDonald, that fantastic Scottish poet-preacher-fantasy-writer-theologian who continues to stun us with his insight into human nature and God's nature. (He might be a little bit wordy, and romantic, but most of us love him just the same).


We will meet this Sunday April 28th immediately after Evensong at the Canlis house (3385 Number 1 Canyon Road - park in the cul-de-sac please), at 6:45pm. I'm hoping I'll have my act together to serve the very famous dessert from George MacDonald's neck of the woods - Sticky Toffee Pudding. And I'll have more seating! And a better idea of how to serve hot tea to the masses :)


Bring your favorite quotes and questions. January's discussion was very rich - I'm so grateful for all your companionship this year - come ready to sit at the table or hide in the back corner. All are welcome. 

 

Newcomers Dinner May 11th


If you are new to our church and haven't attended one of our newcomers dinners, we'd love to meet you and share stories around a dinner table at a host home in our parish. 


Come meet other newcomers as well as one of our pastors, and find out how you can take the next step in your path to belonging at Trinity Church.


 

Trinity Ladies Night

Tuesday, April 30 @ 6:30pm


All Trinity Women are invited to an informal get-together. Our only agenda is to have fun while getting to know each other better. Bring a finger food (sweet or savory) if you wish. There will be lemonade and wine, but you may bring a drink to share.

Last Sunday, Nikki Fritz shared a poem with us. These are beautiful words for those of us who are exhausted and struggling.


For One Who Is Exhausted, A Blessing

by John O’Donohue


When the rhythm of the heart becomes hectic,

Time takes on the strain until it breaks;

Then all the unattended stress falls in

On the mind like an endless, increasing weight.


The light in the mind becomes dim.

Things you could take in your stride before

Now become laborsome events of will.


Weariness invades your spirit.

Gravity begins falling inside you,

Dragging down every bone.


The tide you never valued has gone out.

And you are marooned on unsure ground.

Something within you has closed down;

And you cannot push yourself back to life.


You have been forced to enter empty time.

The desire that drove you has relinquished.

There is nothing else to do now but rest

And patiently learn to receive the self

You have forsaken in the race of days.


At first your thinking will darken

And sadness take over like listless weather.

The flow of unwept tears will frighten you.


You have traveled too fast over false ground;

Now your soul has come to take you back.


Take refuge in your senses, open up

To all the small miracles you rushed through.


Become inclined to watch the way of rain

When it falls slow and free.


Imitate the habit of twilight,

Taking time to open the well of color

That fostered the brightness of day.


Draw alongside the silence of stone

Until its calmness can claim you.

Be excessively gentle with yourself.


Stay clear of those vexed in spirit.

Learn to linger around someone of ease

Who feels they have all the time in the world.


Gradually, you will return to yourself,

Having learned a new respect for your heart

And the joy that dwells far within slow time.
