Dear Members of the Trinity family,
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
The Advent Season is a time of peace, stillness, and quiet. It is a time
for prayer, meditation, and reflection. It is a time of hoping, waiting,
and preparing. It is a season of stillness.
As I prepare for this season of watching and waiting, I am keenly aware
of the busyness of the season – all the things that keep me from being
still. There are so many demands and expectations. There is a tree to
decorate, gifts to buy, cookies to bake, traditions to keep, presents to
wrap, cards to address, as well as concerts and parties to attend. And,
of course, there are all the normal, non-seasonal chores and tasks that
must be done.
In spite of all this busyness, Advent is a season of stillness – a time to be
still in our bodies, in our souls, and in our hearts. It is a time to carry
the stillness within us. In the hurry and chaos of the season, the longawaited Christ child is calling us to stillness. “Be still,” the Scripture
says, “and know that I am God.”
Advent is an ideal time to practice the spiritual discipline of stillness.
Take time each day to be still, to read scripture and devotional
materials, to pray for your family and our church family. Strive to be at
peace with yourself, your family, your world, and God. When your heart
and your hands are still, when your mind is free from worry, fear, and
anxiety, when your body is calm and at rest, you will discover the gift
of Advent peace. May God bless our homes and our hearts with the
stillness and peace of the Christ child.
Peace, love, and joy,

Luke shares with us in Acts 20:35, “In everything I
showed you that by working hard in this manner you
must help the weak and remember the words of the
Lord Jesus, that he himself said, ”It is more blessed
to give than receive.”
In the spring of 2015, as a part of fulfilling my
internship here at Trinity Lutheran, I will be leading
a mission trip to Crisfield, Maryland. This town still
suffers from the effects of hurricane Sandy. The
group will be working to restore people’s homes
and in a sense helping to return their life to some
degree of normalcy. Situated at the end of a road
and on the waters of Chesapeake Bay, Crisfield was
deemed the “Forgotten Town.” It is my desire to
reinforce to the people of Crisfield, with your help,
that God has not forgotten them. Crisfield, once
known as the “Seafood Capital of the World,” is the
poorest town in Somerset County, which is the
poorest county in Maryland. It is our plan to travel,
using personal vehicles, to Crisfield on Sunday, May
10 and return on May 16. A facility is provided in
Crisfield that will house us during our stay and can
hold up to 25 people. It is also in our preliminary
plans to take one day, Friday May 15, as a free day
and go on an adventure. The cost of the trip is
$150.00 per person and covers all expenses other
than meals up and back, and any other monies spent
for personal use.
Registration is currently open, and you can do so by
contacting the Church Office. If you have any
questions please feel free to contact me at the
church
office
or
by
email
at
[email protected] I look forward to working
with you on this journey of Christ’s love.
God’s peace,
Vicar Rusty Kehl
