Dear Trinity family,
When Hurricane Harvey and Irma struck our shores, I told you that the Church was about to have one of its finest moments. Long after the cameras leave and the flooding has been forgotten, the Church continues to do the hard work of clean up, rebuilding, and sharing the love of Christ with all who have suffered from these storms. In both Houston and Jacksonville, there are Anglican churches that are leading the charge. But this is not just the call of the churches that have been planted in areas that flooded; this is our call as their brothers and sisters in Christ. Bp. Neil Lebhar has called on all churches in our diocese to send teams to Jacksonville to help with the massive clean-up effort underway there. On October 27–28, Peggy Corbitt, our Lay Catechist, will be leading a team from Trinity to answer this call. We will be coordinating directly with a sister Anglican congregation onsite in Jacksonville. If you are interested in joining us for this 2 day trip, there will be a registration table available after the service. You can also sign up online. If you have any questions about this trip, please contact Peggy Corbitt (firstname.lastname@example.org). Lastly, if you are unable to join the team but would like to support this mission trip, there will be lots of items to donate or you can make a financial contribution towards the costs of the team. Checks can be made payable to Trinity Anglican Church and ‘Hurricane Relief’ written in the memo line. When the other apostles welcomed Paul as a brother apostle, they gave him one requirement: that he remember the poor (Galatians 2:10). Let us not forget our Anglican brothers and sisters who have lost so much!
