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.

Trinity members have asked about the most direct way to make a cash donation to the Christian Food Pantry. Here it is: You can write a check for any amount to the CHRISTIAN FOOD PANTRY. You can write TRINITY in the memo space on the check since the pantry keeps records for its annual report. You can mail the check directly to the pantry founder and co-director at this address:
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).
