Love God. Love Neighbor. Change the World. Those are words worth building a life on. And, for 2016 we will be trying them out as a “rally cry” for our life at Trinity. You might have already noticed that these words have started to appear on some of our printed materials. In the past year, the vestry and Thrive team have spent time, significant amounts of time, reflecting on our hopes and dreams for Trinity. As a part of that discernment, we have wondered and prayed about the central “Why” of Trinity. Why is it that we are here? As we circled around this question, a number of possible mission statements arose. After all these conversations, I found myself drawn to these words: Love God. Love Neighbor. Change the World. On the one hand these words are incredibly simple and seemingly straightforward. On the other hand, we all recognize the challenge of living up to them.
