Beloved Siblings in Christ,
Yesterday we marked the beginning of Lent with the imposition of ashes at our Ash Wednesday services. For those who couldn't, or didn't wish to, enter the church for any number of reasons, we met them where they were with our Ashes to Go. We continue to be moved by the power of a "smudge" for many who receive ashes on the side of the road, and know that by providing Ashes to Go, we are meeting an intense need not always recognized.
By now you should have received your Lenten Meditation booklet, written by Trinity parishioners, clergy, and staff. We encourage you to take part in daily meditation on your own, or with others during TrinityConnect and Compline live streamed on Facebook Monday to Thursdays at 11:00am and 9:00pm, respectively.
Check out all the other great things we have planned for Lent on our website. New classes, Lenten Madness and more. What a powerful time for a community of faith gathered. We are looking forward to spending this season of dying to self together in community, but there will still be virtual options for those who prefer joining in from home.
Finally, the your elected vestry met on Monday night and unanimously voted to continue the mask mandate in the church building until the Tulsa area numbers are lower according to both the CDC and the Tulsa Health Department. However, with the warmer weather, they also made the decision to allow coffee hour to take place outside, weather permitting. We are looking forward to the opportunity to break bread together again and appreciate your enthusiasm in continuing to mask for the safety of our entire community.
"so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another." -Romans 12:5
