Haiti Update – August 23, 2021

Some reminders, friends, that the very best we can do right now is PRAY, send funds, and ask what they need. It is important to let our Haitian friends lead the way in this disaster response.

Reading: “Analog Church: Why We Need Real People, Places, and Things in the Digital Age”

First Trinity’s Executive Ministry Team (EMT)* makes a practice of reading and discussing books together, to help us continue to grow spiritually and professionally. We thought we’d share those books here, in case you’d like to read them, as well. This book was so interesting because it was encouraging us to be truly, physically present with each other in worship and in fellowship and with God’s Word and in every way, and it was published just before the pandemic forced…
