Sunday School Summer Update

We will have Sunday School each week during the summer as we have for the past several years. Children entering kindergarten and older can join in our fun. We will continue to use lesson plans from the Episcopal Church, here
We will be spending as much time outside as we can. Please dress casually. Friends are welcomed!
We will begin each class in the Sunday School room and typically go outside to the garden area just outside the front doors of the Church as soon as we can. We will enter into Church at the Peace Exchange.
The nursery will continue to be staffed each week for infants and younger children.


powerThe Big Picture study group that met  during Lent to study Richard Rohr’s book  Falling Upward will convene again to view and discuss "The Power of Myth," a six-session series of discussions between Bill Moyers and anthropological philosopher Joseph Campbell about commonalities in world religions, myths, and philosophical traditions.
We will begin this Sunday, June 15 at 6:00 p.m. in the Parish Library. All are invited to attend.  This series of video discussions was made 25 years ago, and has been re-issued with added materials and interviews; it was considered innovative at the time, and still today poses powerful insights into many of life's deepest questions.  If you have further questions about the film series or the meetings, ask Karen Peeler, Stuart Hobbs, or Jean Cotting.

1960’s Civil Rights Flashback
Thursday, June 19, 2014, 7:00 - 8:30 PM.

BoothMid-June will mark the 50th anniversary of the 1964 murder of 3 civil rights workers in Mississippi, this unique free program will recall that event and several others in the movement between 1960 and 1965.  It was an era when blacks and whites marched together, were beaten together, were jailed together, and sometimes died together.  At this concert we’ll celebrate the bravery of those protestors by viewing vintage film footage of the civil rights movement’s triumphs and tragedies.  Among them:  the 1960 lunch counter sit-ins, the 1961 freedom rides, the 1963 Birmingham church bombing and the March on Washington, the 1964 murders of the civil rights workers, and the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery.  Also, Paisha Thomas and Bill Cohen will sing about a dozen of the songs that the non-violent and unarmed protestors sang to embolden and energize themselves before facing the violence of racist mobs, high-pressure fire hoses, and police dogs.  Civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King and Medgar Evers are well known for their activism and for being assassinated by racists, but dozens of others who were also struck down remain virtually unknown.  We’ll take some time during this program to read their names and recall their memory.  In the early 1960’s, Jews made up only about 3% of the U.S. population, but they played a far greater role in the civil rights movement.  During this program, we’ll recall several examples of that. 
Location:  Congregation Tifereth Israel, 1354 E. Broad Street (free parking in rear).  The program is co-sponsored by Tifereth Israel and the Columbus Jewish Federation.  Admission is free.  For more information, feel free to call Bill Cohen at (614) 263-3851 or e-mail

Director of Christian Formation for Children and Families
Sought for Trinity Church

Trinity Episcopal Church, an historic congregation in the heart of Downtown Columbus, is seeking a new Director of Christian Formation. Trinity Church has a long history of championing social justice, sponsoring inter-faith conversations and responding to the underserved in our city. We are seeking an energetic leader to build on our strengths to form a dynamic program for children and youth reflecting the diversity of our Church and broader Columbus community. 
In this newly created part-time position, we are seeking a Director with the drive, imagination, and creativity to build on the vision of the Rector and church school leaders. Like many other urban churches, Trinity is faced with the challenge of serving families residing in multiple zip codes with children enrolled in many school districts. We believe our Christian Formation program has the potential to enhance even more broadly our own congregation, as well as a wider population of downtown Columbus families’ current service to a wide and diverse population of Downtown Columbus families and others in the community who share our mission.
For further information, contact Karen Peeler, Trinity Vestry member, at

We remember all who work for peace around the world, especially those who take counsel in Washington, D.C. and Moscow in this time of civil unrest and potential war in Ukraine and Crimea.
We renew our commitments to serve the poorest in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
