Beloved siblings in Christ,
January 2021. So many of us had high hopes that January 2021 would be the start of a return to something resembling "normal." But yesterday proved that things are anything but normal. Regardless of your political leanings, the scenes from Washington, D.C. yesterday were powerful. We are a nation divided.
During times of unrest, chaos, and change we come together to pray. Last night Fr. Lee hosted a compline service on Facebook live, and it proved to be just the balm needed. As we continue to watch the goings on in our nation's capital, we will offer that comfort again. Join us tonight at 9:00pm for a brief compline service on Facebook live. You may follow along on page 127 of your Book of Common Prayer, or visit the online BCP. On top of the chaos in Washington, Covid numbers continue to rise around the nation and here, at home. We want to share the stories of our parishioners working on the front lines, to help amplify your voices. If you work in any medical field and would like to add your voice to our efforts, please send a brief video (30-90 seconds will do, but feel free to send more) to TrinityTulsaOps@gmail.com. Covid hasn't just affected people's health. It's also affected people's livelihoods. Trinity is pleased to be a partner with ACTION Tulsa to accept and process applications for utility assistance. With the hard work of the Social Justice Commission, Trinity alone has processed dozens of applications - in less than two weeks. But there is still money to give. If you are a renter whose income has been negatively impacted by Covid, you may be entitled to assistance. Visit our homepage to learn more and download a simple self-certification application. We are heartened by the stories of loving care Trinitarians are offering each other. Running
errands for the elderly and homebound, dropping off meals for those needing a little help, prayer shawl delivery when times are touch, a letter to someone who is lonely, or a phone call to a friend. This is the church. We continue to say "The building may be closed, by the church is open." In Christ, The clergy and staff of Trinity Episcopal Church +
