A Prayer for the Journey
by Becca Stevens
God, set me on the path again.
Turn me to the rising sun when I need to be inspired.
Turn me to wilderness when I need to be lost.
Turn me toward the business of the world when I need to work.
Turn me toward the mountain when I need to be refreshed.
Then turn me toward the sunset when I need rest. Amen
The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, God may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love.

Thank you to our July 17th Cleaning Party
A group of Trinity friends chatted and laughed together as they polished brass and dusted the sanctuary, cleaned windows and reorganized the Murray Hall pantry and the Mary Moore Room, and did weeding and planting outside. It was a wonderful morning-- thanks to everyone for their time and heartfelt friendship.
