Beloved Siblings in Christ,
As the school year begins, so do programs throughout the Episcopal Church; here at Trinity, and further afield. Christian formation classes for Adults and Children & Youth begin soon, so make sure to check out the options. We have an exciting variety of choices for adult/all ages formation, including a TED talk series, a bible study about the heroines of the bible, and confirmation class. Learn more here.
During the Conversation Circles, the topic of the Soft Space was brought up, and we know this has been a challenging change for some. We came across this article from Old St. Paul's in Baltimore and wanted to share their experience with you. The Rev. Mary Luck Stanley says "We set out to create a Soft Space for families, and, in the process, we have created a whole Christian community that is one big soft space for everyone who enters our doors. Through Forums and workshops, we have worked on ourselves, asking, 'How can we relate to people in ways that are open, civil, kind, and compassionate?' I could not be more proud of the members of our Christian community for their efforts at following in the footsteps of Jesus." We hope that, in time, we will have the same experience and invite you to walk with us.
The Cathedral in OKC is marking the Feast of St. Oakerhater with a special weekend of events with a dinner and presentation about the Episcopal Church's response to Indian Boarding Schools by Rev. Dr. Bradley. Hauff is a member of the Presiding Bishop’s staff. In his role, he is responsible for enabling and empowering Indigenous peoples and their respective communities within the Episcopal Church while also guiding the broader Church in intercultural competencies.

At the National Church level, there are always opportunities for spiritual growth. "The Episcopal Church continues to partner with the Poor People’s Campaign in advocating for truth-telling and social change within the systems of racism, poverty, ecological devastation, and the war economy," according to The Episcopal Church website. Learn how you can engage with these efforts here.
