Brattleboro, VT

the small church with a big heart

+SERMON SERIES, SUNDAYS, JUNE 21, 28, JULY 5

         “SPIRITUALITY AND THE 12 STEPS”

What does the Gospel say about our dealing with our addictions? What if the church practiced the 12 Steps? We continue to explore the meaning and implications of our “Spirituality and the 12 Steps”. This Sunday’s (July 5) sermon will focus upon Steps 9-12.  What has unfolded in the Word of God is the reality that the 12 Steps of AA are a resource for our spiritual formation.

    June 21    Steps 1-4

    June 28    Steps 5-8

    July 5        Steps 9-12

Join us as I explore the hope and healing gifted by our gracious God. Please let others know about this series.

+ REMEMBRANCE:  “Those who fail to learn from history,

                                      are doomed to repeat it.”

    June 15th is the 5th Anniversary of the killing of 9 people in

      Bible Study at “Mother Emanuel”, the African Methodist

      Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina

   June 19th is the Anniversary of the Ending of Slavery.

   May 31-June 1, 1921, the Greenwood, Black Wall Street,

    Community in Tulsa, Oklahoma, massacre of over 300

   black residents, and the total destruction of their community

   of 35 square blocks.

 Thousands were placed in captivity for several days.

 The Gospel Hymn proclaims “we’ve come this far by faith”.

  So, the question remains, “How far have we come?”

 Prayers Ascending for all who suffer today’s injustice and are

 killed. Prayers also for the police who often react out of fear

 and lose control. Prayers Ascending that we face our systemic

 racism and heal the wounds of injustice.

Peace,

Pastor Randy Wilburn, Interim Minister

 

In light of all that is happening in our country, our bishop has called us to pray.

A Prayer for the Power of the Spirit among the People of God
God of all power and love, we give thanks for your unfailing presence
and the hope you provide in times of uncertainty and loss.
Send your Holy Spirit to enkindle in us your holy fire.
Revive us to live as Christ’s body in the world:
a people who pray, worship, learn, break bread, share life, heal neighbors,
bear good news, seek justice, rest and grow in the Spirit.
Wherever and however we gather,
unite us in common prayer and send us in common mission,
that we and the whole creation might be restored and renewed,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Oración por el Espíritu en tiempos de incertidumbre y desplazamiento
Dios de todo poder y amor, te damos gracias por tu constante presencia y por la esperanza que brindas en tiempos de incertidumbre y de pérdida. Envía tu Espíritu Santo a encender en nosotros tu fuego santo. Revívenos para vivir como cuerpo de Cristo en el mundo: un pueblo que ora, adora, parte el pan, comparte la vida, atiende a sus prójimos, es portador de buenas nuevas, busca la justicia, descansa y crece en el Espíritu. Dondequiera y de cualquier manera que nos reunamos, únenos en oración comunitaria y envíanos en una misión común: que nosotros y toda la creación podamos ser restaurados y renovados, mediante Jesucristo nuestro Señor. Amén.

On 3/15/20 Trinity's council voted to suspend both meetings and worship for at least the next 2 weeks due to concerns about the Covid-19. Our bishop's latest newsletter says: It’s time for us to be cautious. This is a long way of saying, please refrain from in-person worship for the foreseeable future. In the meantime,the Trinity on youtube link below takes you to Pastor Wilburn's most recent recored message.

Welcome!

Trinity Lutheran Church is a Reconciling in Christ member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. A rich and diverse community that loves and serves God. We have a handicap access elevator to the right of the main entrance and offer nursery care during worship service.

Grace matters at Trinity. Because God is consistent in showering love and forgiveness on the entire world, we strive to be gracious in our relationships with family and friends and as we welcome strangers. We intentionally pray together and challenge each other to become more forgiving and grace-filled as we engage the world around us.
