Coffee with the Rector
If you are new to Trinity (or, not so new) and want to connect to our community on a deeper level than just “passing the peace” on Sunday mornings, then join us in the lounge, Saturday, September 17th at 9:30 am, for coffee, tea, and pastries with the Rector!
Our time together in the lounge will include introductions to some of the people and life at Trinity. All are welcome!
What's Mother Cynthia Reading?
Looking for something to read this Summer? Here are just two selections from Mother Cynthia's own reading list!
Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience by Brené Brown
In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through 87 of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances - a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heartbreaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.

The Art of Noticing by Rob Walker
Welcome to the era of white noise. Our lives are in constant tether to phones, to email, and to social media. In this age of distraction, the ability to experience and be present is often lost: to think and to see and to listen.
Enter Rob Walker's The Art of Noticing—an inspiring volume that will help you see the world anew. Through a series of simple and playful exercises—131 of them—Walker maps ways for you to become a clearer thinker, a better listener, a more creative workplace colleague, and finally, to rediscover what really matters to you.
