“It is often darkest just before dawn”
Dear People of Trinity
A friend of mine had a small watercolor depicting a single brown egg. The shell is lying open, its white interior empty as a winters nest. I asked my friend, what does the picture signify? He said, it is simply a still life painting. But the following words by C.S. Lewis, carries another message:

    It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for a bird to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity) 

Broken and empty places in our lives, like the Empty Tomb itself, can also be signs of a new beginning. “For when they went to the tomb it was empty.” The tomb is empty precisely because somewhere out in the darkness new life is about to begin.

Perhaps we stand before our empty and broken places with sorrow. But with Jesus resurrection we can now stand before them also with hope!

The Easter Egg is an empty tomb, and Easter is it’s day. The egg has hatched. The bird has left its nest. The tomb is empty. Our empty places tell us about endings. Our empty places also tell us about the possibility of new beginning.

Please know that whether you are with us in person or in spirit, we are praying for your well being.

Blessings upon you,
The Rev. John Conn, Interim Rector

Are you looking for a way to help the people of Ukraine?
During the month of April, Trinity Church is partnering with the Syrian Refugee Mission of NE, a ministry of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Beverly Farms, to collect new or gently-used clothing, socks and blankets, as well as cash and checks, for Ukraine. 
You can drop off your donations before or after church every Sunday in April as well as during the April collection for the Bridgewater Food Pantry on Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon. 

Checks should be made payable to the Syrian Refugee Mission of N.E.

Thank you in advance for your support!

To make this a great success, we are seeking donations of eggs with the candy already inside preferably.

We will have a location in the parish hall where the eggs can de dropped off. If you are able, we would appreciate your generosity.
