Our Spirit

We explore Christian theology and life with open minds and open hearts. We are seekers of Jesus’ Way for our 21st century world. Ours is an emerging Christian church, choosing an inclusive, progressive, eco-sensitive path. Our Spirit at Trinity is deeply Christian and also deeply ecumenical.

Trinity embraces people with or without church background and we respect the wide diversity of our personal faith experiences. We accompany one another on our spiritual journeys, participating in Sunday morning worship and choosing from many small groups to deepen faith and enrich lives.

Which opportunities appeal to you?

Meditation Group
Wednesdays at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary
Robert Taylor leads this meditation group. The one hour meeting started as a mantra meditation group in the tradition of John Main, and now also includes exploration and instruction in mindfulness meditation. The group listens to a recorded talk or video, and practices walking meditation followed by silent meditation. We begin and end every meeting with prayer. For more information, please contact the office.

What in the World?
Rev. Erin invites newcomers and anyone interested to join her for supportive, open-minded discussion about God, Jesus, Bible and Church. It’s a wonderful opportunity to explore and deepen your understanding of faith – and to make new Trinity friends!

Trinity Wedding

 Justice and Inclusivity

As one expression of our Spirit of justice and inclusivity, Trinity discerned together in 2005 that our ministers may officiate at same sex marriages, in our Sanctuary and in the community.

 


 

Jesus’ Open Table

We are all invited to celebrate Communion. The model for this sacramental meal is Jesus’ own Open Table. Throughout his lifetime, he refused the religious rules and social conventions that defined who might and might not eat together. He gathered and broke bread with all those who might be excluded from full community. So we too, refuse to set boundaries around this meal, which is meant to nourish us all – body, mind and soul – by remembering and re-enacting  Jesus’ vision of God’s Kingdom come. Without regard for social status, gender, age, sexual orientation or religious affiliation, we all welcome one another to table fellowship, in Jesus’ name.
