Tay Moss, incumbent at Church of the Messiah, is producing a Lenten reflection series for the Anglican Church of Canada. As a visual backdrop, he is filming churches at night. Quite a fascinating process. I worked with Tay to film Holy Trinity as the setting for the second installment. I had no idea at the time what the text would be.

Here is the Holy Trinity Newsletter (Yes, this is a link)
This is something we hope to do on a regular basis, with the next one planned just before Easter. As you experience life at Holy Trinity please take pictures, write stories, etc. to share with all of us. If you do not make it to Holy Trinity in person, but have news or reflections to share you are welcome to do so as well. All submissions should be sent email@example.com by March 18th.
Thanks for helping us improve communications amongst our community!

As we are in the midst of a conversation here at Holy Trinity on liturgical formation – how we shape and express our faith in worship services – Lee very kindly invited me to share a few thoughts from Canterbury this morning. We will continue the conversation after the service in our adult forum.Continue reading “Not in the Bible!”→
