You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson Page 2 At Trinity This Month Landscaping Master Plan: Here is an opportunity for all to be involved in planning the landscaping surrounding Trinity church. We need your creative and/or practical ideas for forming our grounds into a welcoming space not just for us but for anyone looking for a peaceful renewal of spirit. Please come join us in developing a master plan for our land on Monday, April 6 at 6 pm in the church library. Bring a small pizza, wine, or whatever you’d like to share with the others. To prepare for this meeting, think of the most beautiful outdoor spaces you’ve ever seen. These might include labyrinths, sunken gardens, water features, trellises, living archways, quiet reflective spaces with benches – the possibilities are endless. So please join us and bring those ideas or pictures with you and we’ll start on our journey of developing this land we’ve been blessed with. Young at Heart: Join us on Wednesday, April 8th 12:30pm at the Chili’s in the Sams/Walmart Plaza. For more information on the Young-at-Heart group, please call Eleanor Crist. Preaching Series after Easter: Beginning the first Sunday after Easter, April 12th I will be starting a preaching series on the Catechism. The Catechism is what each person studies before being confirmed in the Episcopal Church. It is the foundations of our faith. And yet how many of us have looked at these since we were confirmed? Do we remember what they are? If these are the foundations of our faith, how can we build our faith journey if we no longer know the foundation on which we are building? And for those of you who are new to the Episcopal church, perhaps you have wondered how we differ from other faiths? Or don’t? We will each Sunday be focusing on a different aspect of the Catechism, right up until Bishop Prince joins us in September for confirmation. If any of you are interested in officially joining the Episcopal Church, or are wanting to be confirmed, or baptized – please give me your name so that you can join with those making this commitment to God in September. TRINTY TIMES—April 2015 Green Film Series: Monday, April 13th at 7 PM, we will be wrapping up our film series (for now, anyway) with the PBS Nature series film “The Secret Life of Deer”. It’s an hour-long documentary that looks into the complex society of animals that we are very familiar seeing, often nervously from our cars. Building and Grounds Spring Clean-up: MARK YOUR CALENDARS - Saturday, April 25th and Saturday, May 9th from 8:30am till 2:00pm. Many jobs both inside and outside are on the list. Your help is needed and will be appreciated. A lunch will also be provided. All wreaths and ornamentals must to be removed in the columbarium . Please pick up your decoration before our Spring cleanup. Thank you! Seasons of Life Dear Friends, This year as we enter into Holy Week and Easter, (and perhaps a Spring that may come!) I find myself impatient. Impatient for spring to come, impatient for signs of life, impatient for a change in the weather and the lifting of my inner state, impatient for life. I am tired of the darkness, I am tired. And yet so too is our world. Paul writes about creation groaning and yearning, waiting also for redemption. Some things we have no control over, they are seasons of life that we try to live through with as much grace and strength as we can muster and God provides. But there are some things we can do to help birth the new life that will come. We can avoid things that further strip us of life and the earth around us of life, we can do things that strengthen the frail life there is, and we can choose to be gentle and compassionate with ourselves, others and our creation. In this Trinity Times we have included a number of non toxic cleaning options for our families – why not try out some of these, and if you can make TRINTY TIMES—April 2015 them better – let us know! Why not explore a more intentional healthy way of cooking, or try some new recipes that are compassionate for all creatures. Intentionally discern what strips you of life, and what nurtures your body and spirit? How could you at this time spread a little more compassion and gentleness? Easter begins with just one resurrection, but that resurrection spills out into resurrection life for not just us, but the entire cosmos. But it starts with one act of death-defying life. May we all be strengthened in life and compassion this Holy Week. With love always, Debs Understanding Clergy Leave By Rev. Debs As I was looking at dates and planning leave for this year I found myself wondering how many of you may not be familiar with how clergy structure their time and their leave. And so I decided to write a little bit about it. Clergy, as you know, do not work a traditional 9-5 job. Many people want clergy to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (lol). But off course that is not possible, as clergy are not God. So clergy divide the day into what we call blocks, a morning, an afternoon an evening each being a block, and we work 10 blocks a week – which make up a 5 day work week. Naturally, pastoral emergencies and other events can mean one works more than this some weeks, but this is how we try to balance the work load, so that we do not end up working from morning through till late in the evening. Clergy have 1 months annual leave each year. They also are expected to spend time either continuing their own education or going away for intensive prayer and 2 weeks are given per year for this. (It is with this leave that I have done my own doctoral studies). Lastly, every 5 years clergy are given 3 months sabbatical leave. Clergy have one of Page 3 the highest burn out rates of any profession. This is because we don’t have set hours, we are on call 24 hours a day almost every day, unless we go away. We carry in our hearts your tears, your grief, the pain that you have been through or are going through. We in one day can move from a death, to a celebration and back again to another tragedy. This emotional roller coaster day after day drains clergy emotionally as in no other profession. It is for this reason that sabbaticals are given. Sabbatical leave helps to prevent clergy burn out and enables clergy to remain for far longer in a parish in a healthy way. This year I will be taking my annual leave in August as my sister and her 2 children will be coming out to visit!!! I will be taking Sunday services during this month. My sabbatical leave we decided with the vestry, will be taken over 3 years, 1 month at a time. And so I will be taking my second block of sabbatical leave 11 May – 11 June. I am hoping to spend this time praying and deepening my own spiritual journey. I hope this helps explain to you a little better how clergy structure our time and leave. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me! Minutes of Meeting February 16, 2015 Rev. Julie Secora, Cannon for Mission and Ministry spoke about the Mutual Ministry Review process. MINISTRY: The discernment committee has concluded. John is coming to the end of his contract with Trinity in April. Debs is looking for a new seminarian. A Wednesday service during the summer was discussed. It could be a garden service with a shortened liturgy and a pot luck supper. Page 4 TRINTY TIMES—April 2015 Linda Wackerow and Gayle have purchased coffee mugs for coffee hour. This will reduce waste. The mugs will stay here and then be taken home and put in the dishwasher to sanitize. A basket will be placed to help defer the cost of the mugs. shoveling, scraping, and wishing for spring. Replaced 2 shear pins in snow blower, due to previous item. Ate far too many pancakes at Cartwright’s Maple Tree Inn. The gardening project was discussed. There is food insecurity for the future. Creating food corridors in available space is important. It does not have to be accomplished all at once. What do we as Episcopalians want to bring to others? BUILDING AND GROUNDS: Both rental groups are doing well. The double doors in the parish hall needed to be repaired. Due to the inclement weather, the doors could not be locked. What is needed for the playground has to be addressed and are there any grants that could help defray the cost? FINANCES: Jack presented the Treasurer’s Report which included All Balance Sheets and MTD Analysis of Revenues and Expenses. Parishioners need to be informed of parish finances more routinely The next Vestry meeting will be April 20, 2015. Building & Grounds By Brooks Schneider A-Team Personnel: A tanned and re-energized Jim Wackerow has returned from a month-long sabbatical in Florida. A-Team March Activities: Replaced missing panic bar screws throughout the church. Repaired radiator cover in Green Room in basement.

Thirty Hour Famine - By Pam Fitzmorris: The teen class certainly has been busy learning and serving. This spring these wonderful young Christians will be participating in 2 service projects. On April 24-25, they will be participating in our annual 30 Hour Famine. Students will be looking for sponsors as they fast for 30 hours to earn money to feed hungry children in South America. On May 2-3 our teens will be participating in Rhain's Car City. They will be spending the night at Asbury First Methodist Church along with teens from other parishes. Our teens are looking for sponsors for this as well. As you know, Trinity is an active participant in this wonderful program which provides emergency temporary housing for families at Trinity Emmanuel Lutheran church among others. Won't you please consider supporting one of these great kids for either of these very worthy causes. Thank you for considering. Crop Walk Set to Go: Mark your calendar! CROP walk is scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd! Walk begins and ends at Aldersgate Church. Detailed information will follow as we get closer. Our Habitat for Humanity House Starts this May: Groundbreaking for our new house, is tentatively scheduled on May 6 at 43 Murray St. Our lot is in the Josana neighborhood, north of I-490 in Rochester and west of the stadiums. Our Greece Coalition of Churches has built several homes over the past 15 years, many in this neighborhood. If you are interested in helping to build the house, all skills can be utilized. Even if you have never worked on a house and want to learn a skill, the supervisors will teach you that new skill. To volunteer, go to the rochesterhabitat.org website, click on the Volunteer button and follow the instructions to fill our your profile. Then, in late April or early May, when our house is listed as an active work site, you can go to the website and volunteer for a day. Work days are Tuesday afternoon (12:00 – 4:00, eat lunch before you arrive), and WednesdaySaturday (8:45- 4:00, bring a lunch) Information on what to wear, where to arrive on your workday, TRINITY TIMES—April 2015 Page 6 etc. is on the website. On the page that lists volunteer opportunities, click on “construction sites” for the information you need. Not a builder? Then you can still help. Our coalition needs to finish the fund raising that will pay for our portion of the house. Come and support the Sticky Lips BBQ on May 21 or make a donation through church to the Greece Churches Habitat for Humanity Coalition. Sponsor a box of nails ($10), some door hardware ($25) or a square foot ($65). Any and all cash donations are thankfully accepted! Announcing “Team Trinity” - Brooks Schneider: The annual Tour de Cure bicycle ride to benefit the American Diabetes Association has been moved to Saturday this year. As a result, we have formed a team to participate. Please plan on joining us on Saturday, June 13th, as a rider, volunteer, spectator, and/or financial supporter. It will be a great opportunity to wear our Trinity shirts and show everybody what a fun group of people we are. For details, please see diabetes.org/rochestertour or contact me. Please share this with anyone you know who might be interested in joining in on the fun, whether Trinity members or not. You’ve Brought Your Heart By Linda Wackerow When you attend Trinity's church service on April 5th Easter morning take a minute to really notice the cassock that Debs will be wearing. This beautiful garment, with all of the elegance that comes with the formality of being a priest, was handcrafted by Laurie Phillips. She explained it took her about 40 hours to cut and sew. Take note of the soft linen fabric designed with small collar, embellished sleeves, darts and folds, and little cloth covered buttons down the front. To say this will be worn and honored by Debs for years to come is an understatement. I know each of us here at Trinity feel fortunate to have had many new members from Concord, Epiphany and Messiah join us over the past few months. We have come to love them as I feel they love us, and we truly thank God for them bringing to us their many talents as well. The beautifully designed quilts sewn by Barb, Peggy and Alice, the wood crafted items made by Joe the large cross, so meaningful, esp. at Easter and my favorite, Noah's Ark. Even little Sammy and his desire to help the children in Guatemala have shoes, shows no matter how young a person is, they can cut a path in life making it more rewarding. Susan and her strong desire to make life better for the homeless people of Rochester. Bob D. and his knowledge of the bible can only be summed up by saying we appreciate it when he finds a scripture to share at that perfect and much needed moment. We have Fred to thank for Habitat for Humanity and Molly for her interest in the RCSD children. Let me not forget every Sunday, we have Mike recording our 10:30 service to share with the housebound and Suzanne assisting with her power point knowledge. Lastly, listen to the Intergen Worship songs and hear how much stronger the chorus sounds with the added voices of Robin, Jiffy, Mary Ann and Hank. What I have mentioned in this article does not include the many committees such as liturgy, altar guild, A-team, vestry, discernment just to name a few, that many have been willing to serve on. If I have left anyone unaccounted for, I apologize. I just want others, like myself, to realize how much these many new family members bring to our lives. THANK YOU!!!!! Sunday School By Marion Montstream As we move into April, our children are anticipating Easter, but also knowing that Palm Sunday precedes Holy Week with all those events leading up to Jesus' Resurrection. Easter Sunday will be an Intergen family service. The “Alleluia,”which was buried on the first Sunday in Lent, will be unburied by the children. The Mites Boxes will be returned. There have TRINITY TIMES—March 2015 Page 7 been several children making and selling items for their Mite Boxes. There is also a “Treasure Chest”on the narthex table for additional contributions. The sum of all these contributions will go towards a new playground. On April 12 our children will be learning about Thomas the doubting disciple. On April 26 we shall talk about Jesus as the “good shepherd.” We will also include Psalm 23. Have a happy and blessed Easter! Trinity Green By Brooks & Gayle Schneider Film Series: It has been a fun couple of years, but we’re running out of new things to watch. The 2nd Monday of the month time slot is on the calendar for the remainder of the year, so if anyone has any ideas of things to do then, please let us know. Earth Day, 2015: Wednesday, April 22nd is the 45th anniversary of the first Earth Day. There is a major Rochester Earth Day event, a visit by Dr. James Hansen. Dr. Hansen is the former head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies and brought climate change to the forefront by testifying to Congress in 1988. He will be at the MCC Theater (Building 4) on Tuesday, April 21st from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. The presentation is called “Climate, Energy, and Intergenerational Justice”. Lend and Borrow List: Do you have some items at home that you don’t use every day and would be willing to lend to others for a short time? Maybe you need a sewing machine, carpet shampooer, tent, rototiller or extra set of silverware for a day or two but don’t want it sitting around your house for years after. If you want to be part of network of your friends from Trinity that can lend and borrow from each other, just send Gayle ([email protected]) your name and email address or phone number. I’ll send the email addresses out to everyone that signs up. If you need to borrow something, send your request out to the list to see if anyone has that item. New Mugs for Coffee Hour: Last month we said goodbye to disposable styrofoam cups at Sunday coffee hour and said hello to a set of 50 beautiful new mugs with the Trinity logo imprinted on them. This set of 50 mugs is to remain at church for everyone to use so please do not take them home. You will have an opportunity in the next few weeks to purchase a mug for personal use. In case you're wondering how the mugs will get washed and ready for the next Sunday's coffee hour, volunteers will take them home and run them through the dishwasher then return them the following Sunday. Just let Gayle or Brooks know if you'd like to help out with that.
