He Is Risen!  Alleluia!  

Fifth Sunday of Easter

Bob, Roxy, Katie, Christine and Pr. Tom at Dia De Los Muertos.  

This Sunday we celebrate and say goodbye to Katie and Christine as they complete their time here at First Trinity.  Katie is going on to her internship in Minnesota, and Christine will be graduating from LSTC on May 17, and getting married in June.

We will also be celebrating our own Bob Leone's first 10 years at First Trinity with a piano dedication and taco party after church.  Many of you know that Bob holds a weekly Books to Prisoners group and he pays for most of the postage out of his pocket.  We are asking those who can to make a donation to Books to Prisoners during the party.  $5 covers a letter and books to a person in prison, $10 can send as many as three packages.  Please help Bob in whatever way you can; including books, packing supplies and prayers.  The most requested books are dictionaries and books about prisoners rights/law.  

This Sunday

This Sunday's image of how the risen Christ shares his life with us is the image of the vine. Christ the vine and we the branches are alive in each other, in the mystery of mutual abiding that we read of in the gospel and the first letter of John. Baptism makes us a part of Christ's living and life-giving self and makes us alive with Christ's life. As the vine brings food to the branches, Christ feeds us at his table. We are sent out to bear fruit for the life of the world.
Readings: Acts 8:26-40, Psalm 22:25-31, 1 John 4:7-21, John 15:1-8
