Jesus said to his disciples: I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. [John 15:15]
In our lives as Christians, we need each other. Fellowship groups at Trinity support our connections to each other, and often involve worship, study, and food. Small groups form and change, but we are always growing in love.
Space for Grace
During "Space for Grace," Sundays 9:30-10:15 through March 18,we are following our Diocesan Lenten program from the Society of St. John the Evangelist and Virginia Theological Seminary. This year's study is titled "Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John." Over six Sundays (through the Fifth Sunday of Lent - March 18) we are looking at different aspects of this unique gospel, especially how John invites to go deeper in our knowledge and love of God. A guide book is provided, and all materials - including video mediations - can be found online at www.meetingjesusinjohn.org.
Holy Hikes offers ways of experiencing God through worship as we connect deeply with nature through regular outdoor celebrations of Communion. The Holy Eucharist is a profoundly Creation-affirming mystery. Bread and wine, taken from the earth and created by people’s labors, are offered in a sacred feast to become for the community the Body and Blood of Christ. Elements of the earth become sacraments of the Divine. To celebrate this profound sacramental mystery in the company of all Creation takes us to a new dimension of understanding, drawing us close to the land that has given the grain and grape. Trinity Episcopal Church in Shelburne is home to the Vermont Chapter of Holy Hikes, an Episcopal ministry based in California.
