“This Week at Trinity”

Dear Friends,      Does anyone feel this week between Christmas and New Year’s is, well, strange? My feelings about this past week in general have always been met with a strong sense of, well, awkwardness. The days and hours seem to pass differently than what they do during the rest of the year. I have had the pleasure this week of piecing together a worship service for thi...

“This Week at Trinity”

This Week at Trinity, Beamsville Christmas Eve, 2021 Dear Friends, This week I’ve been thinking back to a day in mid-October.  It feels like a thousand years ago now.  I’ve been thinking about those creative days of dreaming about Advent and beyond.  Hard as it can be sometimes, to work a season or two ahead, there is a deep spiritual pull in that process.  It keeps m...

“This Week at Trinity”

This Week at Trinity, Beamsville Friday, December 17, 2021 Dear Friends, This week had me turning the television to a very different kind of channel.  I should amend that to say my iPad, as I’m not often in front of the big screen, and usually multi-tasking with a program on for sound more than visual, but the same principle applies.  So, there I was, looking for something to watch, ...

This Week at Trinity, Beamsville Friday, December 10, 2021 Dear Friends, This week I went in search of something I thought might be simple to find.  That happened in a couple of different scenarios but the one I’m thinking of most right now was my search for an image of Christmas joy.  I’m sure you’ve noticed that each week, each Sunday, we try to include something visual, to e...

“This Week at Trinity”

This Week at Trinity, Beamsville Friday, November 26, 2021 Dear Friends, This week I was sent a link to a video that, quite likely, has been in circulation forever.  It’s called “Mum Is Obsessed With Christmas” and, if you’ve seen it, you’ll remember it’s a condensed coverage of a week-long decorating project at a family home.  With organization and work that boggles my mind, t...

“This Week at Trinity”

This Week at Trinity, Beamsville Friday, November 19, 2021 Dear Friends, This week’s writing won’t come easily, I don’t think. Then again, for here and for the service text, it might just pour forth as my fingers release all kinds of pent-up thoughts and emotions. It’s been a very, very long week for our family. I know some of yours would say the same. In the Weaver-Orosz circle of ca...

“This Week at Trinity”

This Week at Trinity, Beamsville Friday, November 12, 2021 Dear Friends, This week I’ve been trying to reconcile two rather different images of our place in the world.  By our, I mean humanity in general, and followers of Jesus in particular; and by image, I mean those offered in various forms, from language to graphics, but simultaneously planted with hopes of collective buy-in. ...
