June 2 - Creating Inclusive and Equitable Communities - A Call to Action
Understanding the origins and impact of bigotry in the U.S. today and what we can do about it
Trinity is hosting our partner ING (Islamic Networks Group) on June 2 from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm in Trinity Hall as they pilot this new offering and seek our feedback. The panel will examine the roots and interconnectedness of various forms of bigotry, including Islamophobia, Hinduphobia, Anti-Sikh bigotry, anti-Semitism, racism, and xenophobia, that are directed against Muslim, Jewish, African-American, Latinx, Asian, and Native American populations. Discussion will address the history of knowledge creation about non-whites under colonialism, old and neo-orientalism, xenophobia, and internalized bigotry. Working from the well-established social-science principle that face-to-face education and engagement are the most effective ways to dispel prejudice, panels will include group discussions and conclude with calls to action to counter prejudice and hate while building an inclusive society based on mutual understanding and solidarity.

June 16 - June 30 Home & Hope
Trinity will again welcome Home and Hope families when they stay with us from June 16 - June 30, the 8th summer we have hosted with meals and overnight shelter in Trinity Hall. Home and Hope, a rotating homeless shelter program for 3-5 families, provides a safe haven and offers nurturing support while the families work to regain self-sufficiency. The program relies on Trinity volunteers and offers a variety of ways to participate, including shopping for initial supplies, setting up tents, preparing meal items, engaging with the children, and staying overnight as hosts. ï»¿Although we won’t know the final composition of families until shortly before it starts, the program currently has three families with four adults and five children. We invite everyone, especially those new to Trinity, to participate with your time and talent and join us in welcoming these families (sign-up online). Jim Bramlett and Barbara Newton would be happy to provide more information about the program and answer your questions after Sunday services, or you can reach them by email at Jim or Barbara.
