Beloved Family in Christ,
Many of us are struggling with a roller coaster of emotions as our time of restrictive living drags on. One day might be manageable, while the next sees us angry, frightened, or tearful. We can't fix that for you, but we can be a community of love and support for each other. While you may feel that you need to keep these feelings to yourself, don't. Lean on the church. Know that the church is here for you when you have one of those days. Not just the folks who work in the building, but the church - the people. Whether it's your online Christian formation class, an informal zoom cocktail hour with friends, or during our virtual coffee hour on Sundays, know that you may always share your struggles, without apology. We acknowledge that there are so many in this world right now whose struggles overshadow our own, but we also recognize the need to name what is bothering us, and share our burdens with others. This is what community does.
Gracious Father, we pray for thy holy Catholic Church. Fill it with all truth, in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in any thing it is amiss, reform it. Where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Savior. Amen. (BCP, p. 817)
Remember, the building may be closed, but the Church is open! The Clergy & Staff of Trinity Episcopal Church +
