Grief Group

  Grief is a highly unique experience for each individual in response, intensity, and duration.  For some, a significant loss or trauma may leave us feeling imbalanced, disorientated, and confused along with feelings of sadness, anger, and loneliness that surface in grief.  The world my feel like it has been turned upside down.  Grief can be an isolating experience and it may seem that there is no one who really “get’s it.”  To help explore possible answers and hope for healing, a “Coping with Grief Support Group” for friends and loved ones will be meeting weekly at St. Peter’s beginning Tuesday, March 10th at 2:00pm through April 14th.
        Arlis Schmidt LCSW - Emeritus will facilitate the group.  Ms. Schmidt is a retired licensed clinical social worker with several years of experience of working with groups.  Please call Ms. Schmidt at 210-326-7447 if you have questions or if you would like to participate in the group.  All who are dealing with the pain caused by the loss of a loved one are welcome.

Presiding Bishop's Lenten Message

Bishop Doyle's Address to EDOT Council

Bishop Calls Church to Reconciliation, Service and Evangelism

 

By Carol E. Barnwell

(Ed note: Video of Bishop Fisher’s sermon and Bishop Doyle’s presentation to Council will be available on the website at www.epicenter.org/council on Wednesday, February 11, along with a photo gallery. Full budget reports, and explanation of proposed amendments to the Constitution and Canons are included on the same page.)

 

Calling all Episcopalians to focus on evangelism, service and reconciliation, Bishop C. Andrew Doyle left no doubt there is work to be done in the congregations of the Diocese of Texas and beyond the walls of the Diocese’s 153 congregations.

 

“Diversity is not a core value, it’s the reality of the kingdom of God,” Bishop Doyle told the 431 lay delegates, 201 clergy, alternates and guests gathered in The Woodlands for the Diocese of Texas’ 166th annual Council, February 6-7.

 

“The Diocese is a place where we love and honor all people,” Bishop Doyle said in his address, describing his vision of a system of ministry to grow the Church through new church plants, second campuses and missional communities with a focus on evangelism, service and reconciliation. He called on congregations to “raise up clergy and lay leaders to lead, plan, renew and grow Christian communities.”

 

Bringing people and resources together will energize growth, he told those gathered. “It is better to see the assets in our community – the human and financial abundance we have-- rather than scarcity.” In next five years, instead of clergy led and lay supported churches, Bishop Doyle said the Diocese would become a lay led and clergy supported church. He called for initiatives focused on inclusion of community members in ministries, efforts that strengthen neighborhoods, and which “recognize the dignity, contributions and assets of all participants, providers and recipients alike.”

 

The Bishop went on to say he was “committed to the full inclusion of all people in the life and ministry of the Diocese” and called on church members to become a community of reconciliation. Evangelism or service will be held back without reconciliation, he said.

 

“Reconciliation is dependent upon our relationship with God first, on honest acceptance of personal brokenness and sin … We are to outdo one another in honor,” he said, adding that he would deal with disagreements on the issue of Canon 43 “honestly without dividing the Diocese” and bring the matter before Council in 2016 for conclusive action.

 

He also spoke of a long-term approach to racism in every form. “We cannot ignore it. We have some work to do. We are going to figure out how we can change our behavior because it affects the culture we live in,” he said.   A full audio of the Bishop’s presentation will be linked here by Tuesday.

Thank You from Christ-Yodar Animal Shelter/Adoption Center

We cannot Thank You and the Parishioners of Trinity Episcopal Church enough for your tremendous out-pouring of love and the wonderful donations of food and money to the Christ-Yoder Animal Shelter/Adoption Center (CYASAC) this past Sunday, 5 Oct. at ''The Blessing of the Animals'.  It is the Hill Country Humane Society/SPCA (HCHS/SPCA), your 501(c)3 animal welfare organization, that owns & operates the shelter.
 
We have an Awesome God and for sure His Holy Spirit filled your hearts to over-flowing with compassion to support this open-admission shelter (we do not turn an animal away) that provides services for Burnet & Llano Counties to care for the many animals brought to us and to manage its successful adoption program.  Lin 'off-loaded' the bags of Purina Dog Food, Puppy Food and Kitten Food, towels, doggie treats and other items with the help of a very grateful, newly employed staff member on Monday afternoon.  On Tuesday afternoon she delivered the cash donations of $200 and checks in the amount of $1,680.00, for a total of $1,880.00 to our finance manager (who was at the shelter for 'payday' and to take care of other financial matters).
 
Very significant, also, are the 7 parishioners who joined the HCHS/SPCA.  A strong membership will be the sustaining factor that helps to keep the shelter operational for years to come. All of the yearly membership dues supports the adoption program (shots, heartworm and feline leukemia/aides testing, cap-star (for fleas & ticks and almost every animal comes in with their share of those little critters) and Bortatella shots to prevent 'kennel cough'.  To join just see Dee Yoder @ the 8:00a.m. service or better yet - visit the shelter in Buchanan Dam during visiting hours - Sat. thru Wed. 11:00a.m. to 3:00p.m.  When you visit - bring your old towels, bleach (we use gallons of it to sanitize the animal areas, to include the exercise yards), Purina Dog, Puppy & Cat Food, doggie treats, and toys for the animals.  Be sure and let the staff know you are from Trinity Episcopal Church.  Ready to adopt a precious animal?? - save an animal at CYASAC.
 
Again,  Thank You for your gifts of love for the animals - Love Dee Yoder & Lin Christ
