Names of those to be remembered on All Saints Sunday, should be given to Parish Administrator Bill Ader no later than today, Thursday, October 31.
All Saints Coffee Hour This Sunday - **Change**
Rather than the potluck mentioned in previous announcements, this Sunday we will have a perhaps nicer-than-usual Coffee Hour following the 10:30 service and we invite your contributions to that. I’d liked the idea of making something from a recipe from one of my now long-gone relations, and Kate Worland promises some of her grandmother’s angel cookies. Before the service there will be 1-2 tables set up in the hallway outside the Nave (by Jon’s office) to receive the treats you’d like to share.

Food Ministry News
Have you checked out the Trinity Food Ministry Facebook page? @TrinityFoodMinistry. On it, there is a list of all the things that are always needed for people who come to us seeking help. Please read. Please share. Please give.
I think that Fall fell smack dab into Winter. There were a lot of cold and wet guys who came into the Pantry today. Wet feet, wet jackets, and chilled to the bone because they spent the night outside in that cold rain. We have no hoodies or coats, gloves or hats.
Every Thursday afternoon, 15-20 people know that they will not have a meal until 7 a.m. Saturday morning when they walk the long distance to Christ Church Cathedral. That is why we need the pop-top meats and other items, to make up “goody bags” for these guys so that they have something to eat for the next 36 hours.
The Pantry desperately needs many things:
We are terribly low on bar soap, toilet paper, cereal/breakfast bars, peanut butter, canned fruit. (Can you imagine having no soap, much less no toilet tissue?)
Pop-top meats (tuna, chicken, sardines), breakfast bars, peanut butter crackers, saltine crackers, potted meats, ramen noodles are needed for the goody bags.
Second Annual Thanksgiving Day Gratitude Meal
Last year, in her desire to show her thanks and gratitude for all things Trinity Food Ministry, our main cook, Everlena Starks offered a Thanksgiving meal. This year will be the second offering of that Gratitude Meal. You are invited! November 28 at 2 p.m. Come for a meal; come to help; or do both! We will need help setting up, serving and cleaning up. Contact Barbi (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to be a part of this thing called “Gratitude”.
Sunday Hot Lunch
Did you know that you can be a part of this Food Ministry by offering 2 hours of your Sunday once every 4+ weeks? We need Trinity Innkeepers. That job entails working with our Ministry Partners who prepare the meal and those who serve it. Overseeing setup, the time during the actual meal (2 – 2:30), and cleanup are the main tasks.
You are the face of Trinity to those coming to share the meal and to those serving the meal. It is a vital role. Talk to Barbi Click or Adrienne Fly if you are interested.
HOLY GROUND CONCERT – Sunday November 10th, 3pm
A celebration of music and spirituality presented by the Holy Ground Collaborative will take place Sunday, November 10th, 3pm at the First Unitarian Church, 5007 Waterman Blvd. Our very own Fr. Jon will be emcee for the event. Donations of canned goods and non-perishable grocery items will be collected for the neighborhood panties. Refreshments and fellowship will follow the concert.
Book Discussion Group
We will meet on November 16th to discuss "Blue Latitudes” by Tony Horwitz. In December, we will meet on December 14th to discuss “A Prayer for Owen Meany” by John Irving.
Film & Fellowship
If you love movies, and enjoy stimulating discussion accompanied by a shared meal, please plan to join our Film and Fellowship group on November 12th. Bring food to share at 6:30 or join us for our discussion of “Pain and Glory” and “The Current War” at 7:00. The discussion will be led by Jan Parker and Louis Gerteis.
Invite a Friend to The Table at Trinity!
Come to The Table and bring a friend. The Table at Trinity is our new Saturday night service at 5pm. To introduce the new service and help it grow, we ask each of you to attend on a Saturday night and bring a friend who might enjoy this service. The Table is a welcoming, inclusive and informal worship service for those seeking connection and meaning. Thank you in advance for helping to spread the word about The Table at Trinity!
