Soon you will be hearing from your Trinity Shepherd. On October 24 the training of approximately 20 shepherds will occur over that wonderful new invention called “zoom”. Beginning in November you’ll be hearing from your shepherd with a greeting, news about Trinity upcoming events and a method and time for keeping in touch. Be on the alert for a call/text/email from one of the following shepherds:
Ann Baas, Janne Barnett, Ron Barnett, Linda Beach, Matthew Berg,

Reading the Bible Together Apart
A few weeks ago Pastor Tim mentioned using the daily lectionary to read the Bible “together apart.” A video walk through of the daily lectionary–finding it, using it, praying with it–is available online at https://youtu.be/4NtABiEbgRM
Louise Williams and Pastor Tim have also started a Facebook group for discussing the daily readings, sharing how we feel the Spirit talking to us through them, or just the experience of reading scripture regularly, together apart. The group is called Trinity Daily Lectionary Group and can be found on Facebook here

Zoom Midday Prayer with Deaconess Barb
Mondays at noon – Pray through the directory for our brothers and sisters in Christ. We’ll pray for six to eight households at a time.
Wednesdays at noon – Different prayer styles, like guided reflections, a prayer meditation, Examen (focusing on a word in a Bible passage), breath prayers (where you focus on your breathing and repeat a phrase on each inhale and exhale). Each week will be a different style or practice.
You don’t need to bring anything with you or worry about being put on the spot. Deaconess Barb will lead it. Contact me if you have any questions.
We meet at noon over Zoom. If you would like to pray together but don’t Zoom (or need help), please let me know. I’m happy to make it work.

HELP FOR THE CHRISTIAN FOOD PANTRY
With 161 families receiving food that provided for 440 people the pantry volunteers were busy helping those in our community that came for assistance. It has been decided that menu items for Thanksgiving dinner can be offered since donated turkeys have been reserved. Items that will be given out and, therefore, needed are cranberry sauce, turkey gravy (packets are safest to pack), cake mixes, frostings, French fried onions, boxed mashed potatoes and canned sweet potatoes. It is hoped that items can be packed in such a way as to make it easy for a quick ‘in-and-out’ pick up of items. For basic giving cereals, all soups, bathroom tissue, Kleenex, paper towels, tuna in water, baked beans or pork ‘n’ beans, mac ‘n’ cheese as well as canned veggies are always needed. Any kind of help is greatly appreciated.
Questions? Nan: 219-462-6169.
In addition, food items can be dropped at the pantry on Monday or Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. until noon. The pantry is located in the Asbury Centre building, 7 Chicago Street in Valparaiso (just east across from Trinity’s Washington Street entrance).
