David preaches on Jesus' answer to the lawyer who asked him which of all of commandments of God was the greatest. Jesus, in good rabbinic fashion, gave him two answers instead of one: Love God with all that you have and love your neighbor as yourself. These laws were not new; they came from Deuteronomy and the second from Leviticus.
A special Zoom meeting of the congregation has been called for 12:00 noon on January 17 for the purpose of electing new elders and deacons in the class of 2023. We will need a quorum of 25 to hold the election, so we hope many of you will try to attend. Here is the Zoom link for Sunday the 17th:
We thank all the members of the class of 2020, especially for extending their terms for an extra six months due to the pandemic. They are elders (David Brown, Mike Lhtosky, Laura Piazza, and Amy Rhoades) and deacons (Robin Brown, Diane Catalano, and Betsy Moore).
And hats off to the Nominating Committee for their diligence under duress. Our current slate for 2023 includes Tom Carrigan, Lexi Everett, and Laura Piazza as elders; Kitty Barco and Amber Young are the candidates for deacons.
David will teach a new Bible Study this winter on Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, a very short but important letter that, with the Letter to the Romans, stands as the Protestant Reformation’s central belief: Justification by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. He will also cover the history of Paul’s life, conversion, and ministry. Please let David know via email if you would like to take the course; the class will meet from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. on Zoom on Wednesdays, January 20 through February 24.
Please know that Trinity's elders, deacons, and staff are praying for you, your loved ones, and your friends. If you should have a care concern or celebration you'd like to share, please email David or the church office.
