Tuesday, February 6
7:00 PM Trinity Book Club – hosted by Cindy Sheppard   The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood.  Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge.  But all of that is gone now.  Unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is a scathing satire, dire warning, anda  literary tour de force.  You can also watch this Summer's miniseries on Hulu.

 Sunday, February 11

The theme for Lent  will be Connections and Commitments.  Each Sunday during Lent the second reading will be an alternative reading from various sources that will emphasize thoughts about a connection or commitment relevant to our modern day life. The sermon each Sunday will include followup thoughts to the alternative reading. Sharon invites you to watch Brene Brown’s sermon that she gave on January 21, 2018, at the National Cathedral.  This will be an excellent inspiration to help you ready yourself for Lent, Easter and Eastertide. The link for this sermon is

Also available will be information on three sources for each parishioner to select their individual program for Lenten study. A packet of information for each source is available at the back of the church or in the Church Office.

  1. Lenten Meditations – a booklet containing daily meditations to be used during Lent.
  2. Lent Madness – A fun way to learn about saintly souls. Trinity parishioners do this through an email group. A handout is available that explains the process, includes the bracket of saintly souls and the information needed to participate with other Trinity folks. For more information contact Rodney Hayes at .
  3. The Episcopal Church’s Good Book Club - The Good Book Club is an invitation from  Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to all Episcopalians to join in reading the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts during Lent-Easter 2018. Episcopalians will start reading Luke this Sunday, February 11, and read a section of Luke’s Gospel every day through the season of Lent. The entire season of Easter will be devoted to daily readings from the Book of Acts.
