A message from Rev. Dave
Happy Labor Day weekend! As a reminder, Labor Day is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being. Let us take the time today to remember and pray for all who labor for the greater good – perhaps especially in the last couple of years.
Take some time this week to pay in gratitude for the gifts in your life. Perhaps open yourself from the far that seems so prevalent these days.
A little homework assignment for this week. I’d like everyone to give some thought to the Trinity church and where it is going. What would you like the church to become in the next few years? How are you willing to commit yourself to that becoming? If you have some thoughts to share, please feel free to send them to me at the address below. I’d really like to hear back from you on these questions!
Hoping to see you again soon.
Yours in Christ,
