BRATTLEBORO -- This Sunday morning, April 6, the Rev. Peggy Yingst will reflect on the day’s Scripture readings for the fifth Sunday in Lent. Her sermon "The Gospel of John" tells the hope-filled story of the raising of Lazarus from the dead. The gospel gives us encouraging words to sustain us through the approaching despair of Christ’s passion and brings us to the fulfillment of hope on Easter. Martha’s wistful words to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here... But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask of him" (John 11:21-22), reflect the hope of God’s people in the face of despair, even in the face of death.
Come to worship, to hear words of hope, to pray for strength to live God’s ways, and to share in Holy Communion, the meal of grace and forgiveness.
Sunday School for all ages and the Adult Forum gather at 9 a.m.
Trinity meets for worship at 10:30 a.m. The church is located at 161 Western Ave., Brattleboro, across from Holton Home. Trinity has been an Open and Affirming Congregation since 2004.
