From the Pulpit
This Week's Commentary
October 3, 2019

To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
--1 Corinthians 12: 7-10
In April 2016, a man greeted me outside the Great Doors after worship at Trinity Cathedral. He introduced himself as David Chavez, a representative of Fuller Seminary, and he was interested in creating a strategic partnership between Fuller’s Field Education/Church Vocations department and Trinity Cathedral. Little did I know at that point whom I was actually meeting: a wonderful colleague, theologian, pastor, and friend.
David Chavez has been a part of Trinity’s worshiping community for three and a half years, and he joined the cathedral’s staff in May 2017.  It is, therefore, with very mixed emotions that I announce that David will be leaving the staff of Trinity Cathedral in early November, to begin a very exciting special assignment, working directly for our bishop.  Throughout his tenure, David has brought a wonderful sense of professionalism, excellence in preaching, and a thirst for the presence of God to the people of Trinity Cathedral.  He will be missed greatly, and we know that he will find success and blessing wherever he goes.
Plans are underway at-present with Bishop Reddall’s office to find a new Associate for the Spanish-speaking community at Trinity.  Bishop Reddall and her staff have been extremely responsive and will be collaborating with Trinity in our search.  Our commitment to multicultural ministries will continue, and we will continue championing Trinity’s mission:  Welcoming all to be transformed in Christ, through worship, fellowship, and service.
Who can forget the celebration we all experienced in December 2018 at David’s ordination to the priesthood, along with mariachis, the full choir, and our wonderful guest preacher?   In that same spirit, I would like to cordially invite you to celebrate with David Chavez on All Saints’ Sunday, November 3, at 8 and 10, which will be his last Sunday with us.   As always, we will have wonderful music, David will be our preacher, and after the 10 o’clock service, we will have a wonderful celebration in his honor, with great food and wonderful activities for people of all ages.   Save-the-date and don’t forget!   On Sunday, November 3rd, let’s celebrate David and honor all the saints of God!
At Trinity, we are continuously blessed by the people who God sends to be a part of our community.   While we feel sad to say goodbye, we can rest assured that the hand of God is upon all our work and ministry.  We are people who encounter blessing, and in turn, send people out to bless others.  It is in this spirit that we bless David Chavez, that we thank him for his wonderful work, and we wait with great anticipation for the marvelous works that God has in store for us in our future.
In Christ’s peace,

True Expressions: Art by Karolina and Bela Fidel

Karolina Adams and  Bela Fidel  use their divergent styles to find a true expression of their emotion and imagination. 
Karolina Adams  works in ink and graphite, creating intimate imagery that is playful and poignant.   A recurring character in her work is of a small drawing mannequin with red striped socks. This tiny figure interacts with large real-world objects and conveys an emotional punch. "...it's a lot easier for me to engage in drawing, unload the feelings, and work through the thoughts and emotions and tell my stories." Adams has a BFA from Columbia College, Chicago. She is a gallery artist in Scottsdale AZ and Lenox, MA. and has presented her work in shows around Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Illinois.
Bela Fidel  works with oils, encaustics, and experiments with plasters and compounds to create unique mixed media paintings. Her work is both abstract, colorful, and textural. Fidel seeks true expression in art. "Each painting takes me to roads traveled as well as worlds unknown and provides challenges for growth and humility." Living in different countries Fidel has experienced many cultures which she feels has enriched her art. Fidel was born in Sao Paulo Brazil and studied at Hebrew University in Israel.  She is currently a member of International Encaustic Artists.  Winner of numerous awards and has shown her work throughout Arizona and California.
