Trinity Says Goodbye to a Dear Friend and Faithful Servant to Our Church
Wendy Haber and her husband Russ are heading to Boston to help their daughter and son-in-law with newly arrived Grandson, Asher Rodney Haber-Quinn.
Wendy has been a blessing to Trinity in so many ways, and has worked unceasingly to help make our campus buildings and grounds well maintained and beautiful, and has provided leadership in moving the church forward in positive and purposeful ways.
We will miss you, Wendy! And we wish you Happy Trails!
Coffee Hour ...
Please Join in!
Let's socialize more!
We are looking for a rotating crew to make Coffee Hours a more regular occurrence after service on Sundays!
We're keeping it easy:
One pot regular, one pot decaf (And Fr. Jim makes the coffee!), cream/sugar, no food to put out. Clean up and put away. That's it!
You, or other parishioners, may bring goodies -- which is wonderful! -- but is not your obligation as the coffee host.
If you are interested in helping out, please contact Wendy in the office.
Thank You! Thank You!

Statement on COVID-19 from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
September 29, 2022
Office of Public Affairs
My beloved family in Christ,
Earlier today I tested positive for COVID-19, and I will be participating in upcoming events remotely or through pre-recorded messages.
I am fully vaccinated and boosted, and I am grateful for the scientific advances of vaccines and antiviral treatments that help prevent serious illness and death. I encourage you to talk to your doctor about receiving all vaccinations and boosters for which you are eligible.
So far, I have mild symptoms, but I would appreciate your prayers for an uneventful and swift recovery. Likewise, I will hold you and all of God’s children in my prayers as we walk in the light of Jesus’ love together.
Yours in Christ,
Michael B. Curry

Why Is It So Hard to Ask for Help?
When we're in need, we underestimate just how willing people are to assist us and how positive they feel about doing so.
By Melissa De Witte | September 23, 2022
Asking for help is hard, but others want to help more than we often give them credit for, says Stanford social psychologist Xuan Zhao.
We shy away from asking for help because we don’t want to bother other people, assuming that our request will feel like an inconvenience to them. But oftentimes, the opposite is true: People want to make a difference in people’s lives, and they feel good— happy even—when they are able to help others, said Zhao.
Here, Zhao discusses the research about how asking for help can lead to meaningful experiences and strengthen relationships with others—friends as well as strangers. Zhao is a research scientist at Stanford SPARQ, a research center in the psychology department that brings researchers and practitioners together to fight bias, reduce disparities, and drive culture change. Zhao’s research focuses on helping people create better social interactions in person and online where they feel seen, heard, connected, and appreciated. Her research, recently published in Psychological Science, suggests that people
regularly underestimate others’ willingness to help.
This fall, Zhao will be co-teaching a two-session workshop Science-Based Practices for a Flourishing Life through Stanford’s well-being program for employees, BeWell.
