In our church history there have been so many local “saints” who have faithfully fulfilled our mission. May we carry on our Gospel work here at Trinity, suffering with those who suffer and rejoicing with those who rejoice, all the while sharing what we have wih those who need us the most.
Let us never forget that we truly have “Good News” to share, news that the world desperately needs.
Even though there are always various elements of uncertainty in the faith of all Christians, let there be no uncertainty about this:
“To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”
1 Corinthians 12:7
To us this means that each person of Trinity has gifts needed to help Trinity survive and thrive. Sometimes we don’t recognize the gifts God has given us. Sometimes we need our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to point out and help us use these precious gifts, no matter how small, that God has given each and every one of us.
