The Dean's Commentary

How priceless is your love, O God! Your people take refuge under the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 36:7

Dear Friends,

As we begin this New Year and immerse ourselves into new opportunities for worship, fellowship, and service, we are reminded this Sunday how much God truly loves us. Our Gospel reading focuses on the wedding feast at Cana, the site of Jesus’s first miracle. In that story, the young Jesus is urged by his mother to allow the wedding feast to continue, after the owners of the house declare that they have run out of wine. Jesus performs a miracle that allows the gathering to continue for many days to come.

We often hear the phrase at Trinity, “in the kingdom of abundance, there is always enough.” This Sunday’s reading attest to this reality.  As the life and ministry of Jesus becomes known to the world during this liturgical season, we are always reminded of the call of God upon our lives.  We have each been given gifts and talents to use for the glory of God in all we do. We have each been blessed by a God who loves us with a quality of love that is indeed priceless.

The Very Reverend Troy Mendez

This Band of Sisterhood
Thursday, February 17 at 6 pm
Conference Room

February's book discussion we'll read together "This Band of Sisterhood: Black Women Bishops on Race, Faith, and the Church," edited by Westina Matthews, who will join our discussion.

In the words of Church Publishing, "During this moment, with the #metoo movement, Black Lives Matter, and the increased feelings of division in our country, Black women clergy in the Episcopal Church have voiced a need to come together, believing that their experiences and concerns may be very different than those of other clergy. That need is answered here in This Band of Sisterhood.." Order your copy, begin reading the book, and join us for an evening of conversation and reflection.

Abstract Interpretations
January Olney Gallery Exhibit 
First Friday reception January 7, 2022, 6:00pm - 9:00 pm

Aimee Ollinger, Larry Nisula, and Carolyn Tolliver present fresh and distinct perspectives through their abstract works.
Aimee Ollinger is a mixed media artist based in Phoenix. Through both microscopic and macroscopic lenses, Ollinger’s drawings dissect multiple layers of nature. These include landscapes, botanicals, fungi, coral reefs, and minerals. Ollinger subtly creates narratives that expose and inform us about the gracefulness and complexity of our organic landscapes and elements by resurfacing these delicate details of the natural world through an abstract interpretation. Ollinger received her BFA in Drawing from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University.

Larry Nisula explores the permanence of materials in his show titled “Fugitive.” Nisula explains that “paper and pigment are chosen to stand the test of time. To not be fugitive, but given enough time, everything is fugitive, not just art.” Nisula is an instructor of printmaking at the Shemer Art Center in Phoenix.

Carolyn Tolliver tells a story through watercolor. In her series “Ageing Gracefully,” she uses the three primary colors and the color combinations created by mixing and layering. Art allows Tolliver to express her innermost feelings and share her awe of the world. Tolliver’s work has received awards from the Arizona Art Alliance, the Arizona State Fair, the Laveen Art League, the Phoenix Artist Guild, and the West Valley Arts Council.
