A Message from Fr Brad

I am writing to you all just a few days before a group of Holy Trinity and Emmanuel parishioners get to travel to the Holy Land. We will be gone from the 15th through the 26th (while I am away, Fr. Christopher will be at our services and take call).

I have been reflecting on my last trip (which was in 1997) and am excited to fill in the gaps that my memory has about that trip. What I do remember about the trip in 1997 is that it took my understanding of many things to a much different level. The way I would describe this difference is the difference between watching television in black and white and watching it in color. The essence is the same, but one is more enhanced. I will look forward to sharing with you all my thoughts after returning back.

In the meantime, I want to say Happy New Year and may this season bring deep joy and peace.
