Welcome to Trinity MCC's Website.
We are so glad that you have visited with us today.
We hope you will be able to find everything you need but if you have any questions please contact us on 352 317 5143 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are a Christian Church that believes it is humanity that places boundaries on God's love and not God.
Therefore the mission of Trinity MCC is to spread the message of God's inclusive love.
May your day be blessed by the God of your understanding.
As I prepare for thanksgiving, I am reminded that there are many in our community who can only give thanks for being alive, because they have nothing else. In 2017 it seems that although the world has enough resources for everyone, they are not with everyone. There are those who do not have enough food for their children, clothes for their parents, money to put on fires/air conditioning, or even enough to be able to have somewhere to rest their head.
As you celebrate thanksgiving, my prayer is that you will find a way to be thankful for your resources, the people around you and for every blessing that you have. However I wonder if you would also give thanks for each beautiful rainbow vibrant person whose life has been lost to trans violence, for every beautiful rainbow vibrant person who finds themselves homeless or for every beautiful rainbow vibrant person who finds themselves alone this season. I have seen so many this year offer out an open door to those who would like to come and share thanksgiving with them - would you be willing to open your door to people who are alone or homeless other days of the year? I have seen people who are helping at shelters for thanksgiving - would you be willing to help at shelters any other day of the year? You see we often do things at special times which is wonderful, we offer prayers of support, which are great, but unless we back these prayers/actions with a way of being all year round, surely we are slightly missing the point? If we are to truly make a difference in our communities, this will take a lot of work and a willingness to move beyond our comfortable world. This week I saw a meme that said ‘Only in America do people trample over people to buy things they don’t really need, the day after they give thanks for everything they have.’
Will you join me in trying to be the best I can be in living out the legacy of Jesus on a daily basis? None of us will be perfect. None of us will be able to help everyone. However a lot of us helping in a small way regularly can help an incredible amount of people.
I wish you a very Happy thanksgiving.
