We hope you enjoy reading, and we'd love to hear your favorites too.
As Boston continues to recover from Monday’s terrorist attack, we at Trinity Church continue to pray for our city and especially for those who were maimed, killed, or who lost loved ones in the bomb blasts. A day of happy celebration—Patriots Day, a winning day for the Red Sox, and above all the Boston Marathon—was turned into a nightmare of screams and bloodshed.
We invite you to sign up for our next continuing education session, "The Preacher's Self: The Role of the Preacher in the Sermon."
Earn 20 continuing education contact hours and renew and refresh on our beautiful tree shaded campus in Austin, the live music capital of the world.
Smokin' for Mission: Students Plan BBQ Competition to support Episcopal Relief & Development
On February 2, the community at Seminary of the Southwest will gather for an afternoon of fun-filled BBQ competition at the seminary campus. The teams have been preparing for weeks, honing their BBQ skills around the grill and are now ready to show each other who the real grill masters of the seminary really are!
The best part of the event: all of the profits from the event are going directly to support the mission of Episcopal Relief & Development!
