Falling for Trinity

Fall is well and truly upon us, here at Trinity. Although the only real evidence so far is humidity, or lack there of.  The days are still in the pleasant 80s but the nights are dipping into the low 60s which only makes an evening campfire all the more delicious–particularly those involving s’mores.

We’ve had a lot of Campus Ministries and other youth groups as well as a couple of new adult groups trying Trinity for the first time. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We’ve had Artists’ workshops and Yoga Retreats.DSCN0693

And, we’ve had several Women and Men MinistriesOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA, and a few much needed Pastoral Retreats.   A sprinkling of Individual Retreats, especially clergy, are always tucked in among everybody else because Fall is also a good time to find a few days to run away from home before the full swing of the holiday season takes place.IMG_7766

Our Sanders Point restoration is complete and once again our favorite outdoor Chapel is welcoming visitors.

For those of us whose thoughts always turn to new pens and clean notebooks (and calendars!), Fall is a time of classes and schoolchildren. Our new Sound to Sea staff are making themselves at home and our Schools’ programming is in full swing.students pond 3

Trinity is still lush and green although the maritime forest is starting to look a little tired around the edges.

But after the hustle and bustle of summer, the sleepiness is welcoming and relaxing. tree on walk Even the mosquitoes are relaxing their vigilance and are blessedly absent–for the most part–this time of year.

There’s no better place to take stock and make plans than Trinity.  Fall is lovely at Trinity.  If your business staff or group needs to take stock and plan the next year, or your spiritual batteries need recharging, we hope you think of us.

You won’t find a better place.
