In the summer of 2015, one of Trinity’s youth members working on his Eagle Scout status asked permission to construct a labyrinth at Trinity with the help of volunteers. The project was completed in July 2015. A year later, parishioners Joanie and George Gutermuth added a pollinator garden to the entrance of the labyrinth. This year, the garden was expanded. On September 10, members gathered outside at the labyrinth before the worship service for a special blessing and Trinity officially thanked the Gutermuths for the beautiful garden addition.
STAINED GLASS CROSS AND PICTURE RECEIVED AND BLESSED
On September 27, the Rev. Nancy Hardin blessed a beautiful stained glass cross and picture that were donated to Trinity by parish member Joan Swank. Joan’s father, the late Charles A. Roberts, made them in the 1980s for their home church: Central United Methodist Church, in Springfield, Ohio.
THE KIRKING OF THE TARTANS NOVEMBER 19
Trinity extends an invitation to all to join us for the Kirking of the Tartans on Sunday, November 19 at 10:30 a.m. The service, which uses the Scottish Liturgy 1982 for the Eucharist, will include banners, bagpipers and drums provided by the Miami Valley Pipes and Drums. This is all accompanied by Trinity’s Holtkamp pipe organ. It is an impressive sight and an experience that thrills. At the reception that follows the service, the Haggis (a savory pudding concoction) will be piped in and special Scottish refreshments will be served.
