Description:
This April marks the 50th anniversary of the tragic assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., so for Lent this season, Trinity is joining with St. Matthias to let King’s prophetic voice ring again. On each Sunday, we will explore on of King’s sermons, delivered in worship and in churches, to allow his voice and spirit to speak directly to us again. Some scholars consider the Civil Rights Movement as much a religious revival movement as a political movement. And King’s sermons demonstrate this dynamic profoundly, revealing King as a faithful pastor, an engaging theologian, and a stirring prophet all at once. We will hear his voice in its context and then explore how his voice continues to speak to us today and our current context today, to challenge, to inspire, and to provoke us to be more faithful Christians. Held jointly in honor of Dr. King’s vision of beloved community, this series will be led by and hosted at St. Matthias for the first two weeks Feb. 18-25, concluding for the final weeks at Trinity March 4-March 25, from 9:30-10:15 a.m. St. Matthias is located a few short blocks from Trinity at 1 Dundee St. The series will run from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. to give all attendees time to make it to worship at their respective parishes. Feb. 18th at St. Matthias: Bill Mance, diocesan chair of the Commission to Dismantle Racism, on “Paul’s Letter to American Christians,” a sermon delivered at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Montgomery, Alabama, on Nov. 4, 1956. Chairman of commission to dismantle racism Feb. 25th at St. Matthias: Jean Parks, previous senior warden of St. Matthias and counselor with the Partnership for Pastoral Counseling, on “Loving Your Enemies,” a sermon delivered to Dexter Avenue Baptist Church on Nov. 17, 1957, March 4th at Trinity: Liz Colton, Trinity vestry member and board member of the Asheville Martin Luther King, Jr. Association, on “The American Dream” and “Unfulfilled Dreams,” sermons delivered at Ebenezer Baptist church in 1965 and 1968. March 11th at Trinity: The Rev. Margaret Faeth on “The Drum-Major Instinct,” delivered at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Feb. 4, 1968. March 18th at Trinity: The Rev. Dennis Fotinos, facilitator of Trinity’s Becoming Beloved Community group, on “A Knock at Midnight,” delivered at Mt. Zion Baptist (Cincinnati) on June 11, 1967 March 25th at Trinity: The Rev. Dr. Scott White, with the Rev. Kirk Brown chaplain at Christ School, on “Reimagining Awake Through a Great Revolution,” delivered at Washington National Cathedral on March 31, 1968. Just a few days before his assassination, this marked King’s final Sunday sermon of his life. The Rev. Brown was in attendance that day.

Description:
The world desperately needs to encounter genuine followers of Jesus Christ whose lives are authentic and express our Savior’s heart. Jesus describes these Christians in the Beatitudes—believers who are poor in spirit, who mourn over their own sin and the brokenness of mankind, who bestow mercy on other sinners, and who are ever hungry for more of Him. As we seek His grace, Jesus promises that our lives will be blessed and the world will be impacted for His glory. Come dig into His Word, pursue His purpose for you, and take the heart of Christ to lost and desperate people.

Description:
What is the state of spirituality and faith in Asheville and Western North Carolina? In a community and a nation that is dramatically and rapidly changing, what are the most important and pressing spiritual issues facing people of faith and how are communities of faith addressing them? We wanted to know, so we decided to invite a half-dozen faith leaders from our region to join us in conversation and dialogue this Lenten season. Hosted by a member of Trinity’s clergy on Wednesday during Lent, these interview-style sessions will give us a chance to listen to our sisters and brothers about what they see happening in our communities. A light lunch ($5.00 per person) will be served, beginning at 12:00 noon and the program will begin at 12:15 p.m., running until 1 p.m. Bishop José McLoughlin will be our guest on Wednesday, Feb. 21 Rabbi Batsheva Meiri of Congregation Beth HaTaphelia will join us on Feb. 28 The Rev. James Lee will join us on March 7 Faith leaders involved in ministry to those experiencing poverty and homelessness, including the Rev. Vic Mansfield of Church of the Advocate, will join us on March 21 Our guest for March 14 is still being confirmed, so be on the lookout for that announcement!
