Church News October 2016

Fall means change. Cooler, shorter days show us the impermanence of things. Brilliant autumn leaves remind us that even trees need to sleep sometime! The cycle of seasons leads us to annual traditions of harvest and feasting, but we know change is the real impetus that moves our lives forward.

I believe it was the Buddha who said that the only permanent thing in life is change. Or something like that. Cool, unpredictable October can encourage us to embrace change, letting it deepen our experiences, our relationships and our soul journeys.

October also brings changes to Trinity Church, in addition to our continuing programming.

Community choir. This choir is a community, a place for learning to sing, a safe place to explore your voice and its capabilities, to experience the joy of singing and harmonizing with others. Singing heals the body, mind, spirit and communities. We become one voice when we sing in choir. The vibrations we create are far-reaching with a larger impact than any of us can know. Do you like to sing? Have you always wanted to learn? Join us on Sunday afternoons at 1 p.m. in the sanctuary, as we prepare for a transforming musical Christmas experience!

Need some healing time? Healing Touch, a gentle energy therapy, restores balance and harmony to body, mind and soul. It relieves pain and stress, promotes and accelerates healing, calms anxiety, supports cancer care and addiction recovery and eases life transitions. Pastor Gina, CHTP, offers Healing Touch to the community free of charge the third Sunday of each month (October 23) from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The Power of the Bible is our new Bible study led by our own renowned Biblical scholar-in-residence, Jim Linde. We meet Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Be challenged, be enlightened! Join us for deep understanding, lively discussion!

The Power of Music: The Piazza della Republica in Cortona, Tuscany, is the magnificent setting for Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra. This free music-video event features a range of songs from opera to traditional and pops. Join us for an Italian themed reception following the music. This will be an exquisite evening of song, and you are invited, if you so desire, to dress accordingly. Seriously, when was the last time you dressed up to go out in Pt. Bob? Let’s do it in style Saturday, October 15, at 7:30 p.m.

Philosopher’s Cafe brings together youth age 15-25 for fellowship, home-baked goods, hot beverages and ambient music. No philosophy experience necessary, this is a time to reflect on deep questions, respectfully debate important issues, share ideas and opinions, in a relaxed, cafe-style setting. We will gather on Saturday, October 1 at 6:30 p.m. and hope to see you there!

Our vision/mission is to share the love of Christ in our community and world. There are so many ways to receive love. Word, music, fellowship and healing are all here! Join us any time!
