Nathan has officially left the building! Our beloved Dean is off on his three-month sabbatical, and while we're sad to see him go (even for a little while), we're so excited to hear all about his journeys. That's why we're inviting you to stay in touch with him-and each other-during the summer months by entering into a community-wide gratitude practice from now until the beginning of the program year in September! Nathan will be posting updates periodically using the hashtag #6degreesofgrateful, and we invite you to do the same! Share your posts about what makes you feel grateful - an experience, an event, or just an everyday moment - with your Trinity family on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. You'll be able to see what other Trinitarians are posting by clicking the hashtag, and you can keep an eye out here for featured posts from Nathan and members of the community all summer long! You can also view each of Nathan's updates by clicking on the links below. Enjoy!


colson whitehead2 620x412 for websiteSummer Book Group-The Underground Railroad

Wednesdays thru August 30, 7:00p.m., Bishop Scott Room. Facilitated by Elliott Trommald.
Underground Railroad is a book for our times-and the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Slavery and race have profoundly shaped the story of America and continue to challenge our understanding of who we are. Closon Whitehead’s magical work is a powerful meditation on the history we share, seamlessly weaving that American story from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of today. Our summer read of Underground Railroad is an opportunity for us to explore, discuss, and feel how our past is always present and that we neglect it at our peril. Click HERE to register.

Emily Scott served as the founding pastor of St. Lydia’s, a Dinner Church in Brooklyn, where communion is shared at the dinner table. Emily believes that Christian practice holds out rich possibilities that call us to reach out across boundaries in love, learn through discomfort, and build relationships that bring God's realm close. Emily is committed to building communities of faith that dismantle fear and hate, affirm LGBTQ people, and confront racial injustice. A graduate of Yale Divinity School, Emily received the Alumni Award for Distinction in Congregational Ministry in 2016. Her work has been covered by The Atlantic and the Wall Street Journal.

Most of us sleep summer camp style in cabins and bunkhouses. If you want more privacy or posher digs, you're welcome to stay at a beach home or local hotel room if that works for you. Have young kids? They can play safely with other kids on the camp playground and in organized kid's activities, leaving you spiritual space. Teens or tweens? There's archery, kayaking and other fun opportunities for teen bonding. Adults of all ages will enjoy group activities, small group time with a Trinity priest, contemplation on the beach or fireside, and great mealtime conversation. Please plan to join us!
