 This Week at Trinity, Beamsville  Friday, June 29, 2018  Dear Friends,  Surprise! It’s me, Michelle, writing to you for ‘This Week’ as a final farewell to my Trinity family as Heather enjoys some vacation time with her own family. When I considered what I would write to you, I thought back to all of the memories we have shared. I have truly been blessed to be a part o...

 This Week at Trinity, Beamsville  Friday, June 22, 2018  Dear Friends,  This week’s ‘This Week’ has had a tentative subject line for more than a few weeks now… which may give the impression that I actually, or usually, plan what might be written here. That rarely happens before Thursday morning at best, depending on the week’s unfolding, but in this particular case, I...

 This Week at Trinity, Beamsville  Friday, June 8, 2018  Dear Friends,  This week our national church has started their weekly e-post of a piece called ‘Ask the Nominees’. I know it sounds a little on the dry side, but it’s all about preparing us to welcome, and specifically for the delegates to this summer’s General Council in Oshawa to vote for, the next Moderator of...

 This Week at Trinity, Beamsville  Friday, June 15, 2018  Dear Friends,  This week it came to light that, for someone raising teenagers, I’ve been spending a disproportionate amount of time in the children’s section of our local bookstore. It was gently pointed out by our daughter’s friend, who happens to work at said bookstore. In response, all I could do was smile an...

 This Week at Trinity, Beamsville  Friday, June 1, 2018  Dear Friends,  This week I had a bit of an ear-worm stuck in my head, and I realize the risk that in naming it here, you too may soon have this little ditty on perpetual play. Here goes anyway: ‘All God’s children got a place in the choir. Some sing low, some sing higher, some sing out loud on the telephone wire,...

 This Week at Trinity, Beamsville  Friday, May 4, 2018  Dear Friends,  This week I’ve been replaying in my head an orange juice commercial. That’s a bit of an odd declaration for someone who doesn’t watch much TV, and especially for someone who doesn’t enjoy orange juice all that much (long story). That said, and much to the ad agency’s chagrin I’m sure, the piece that...

This Week at Trinity, Beamsville Friday, May 25, 2018 Dear Friends, This week I’ve been downloading some rather large files to my most portable devices – which doesn’t sound all that revolutionary or exciting, except there is something of a first in there for me. For background, it’s been part of preparing for this weekend’s Annual Meeting of Hamilton Conference. A good piece of that prep...

Friday, April 13, 2018 Dear Friends, This week’s response to last weekend’s tragic bus accident brought so many things to heart and mind, including a deeper awareness of the vast distance between us and Humboldt, Saskatchewan. Even as media of every sort worked to bridge the distance between us and them, there was and is an inevitable gap, geographically and even more so emotionally. We cann...

Friday, April 6, 2018 Dear Friends, This week’s commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s death brought great pause for thought - thinking about many things but particularly giving thanks for the extraordinary leader he was, and for the enduring wisdom he poured into this world in his too short years. I was also thinking about a 4 minute speech about him that I wrote and delivered somewhere ...

Thursday, March 29, 2018 Dear Friends, This week I’ve been thinking about a film that was highly recommended to me, but that I’ve yet to see. It isn’t so much a matter of time. The film is a 30 minute short, so I can’t claim that excuse, even in this extra busy time of year. Nor can I claim it might be sub-par, as its 2003 release brought a lengthy list of festival nominations and awards. Th...
