Pastor Miller’s Sermon: “Martin Luther or Philip Melanchton…How Do You Vote?”
On June 25, 1530, the Augsburg Confession was presented to Emperor Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire. The Augsburg Confession is the most important confessional document of the Lutheran reformation. Surprisingly, it was not written by Martin Luther but rather by Philip Melanchthon, a friend and colleague of Luther’s. Perhaps what is most remarkable about his document is that it sought to articulate the orthodox and catholic spirit of the reformation rather than its differences with the Roman Catholic Church…Join us on this important day in the life of the Lutheran church.
40th Anniversary of Ordination
This Sunday, June 25th we will celebrate Pastor Miller’s 40th Anniversary of Ordination! All are invited to a celebratory luncheon in the Community Room following mass that day. Contributions may be made to the Building Fund for the purposes of repainting the Community Room and stairwells – a top priority on Pastor Miller’s “wish list” of items to be completed at Holy Trinity in anticipation of our 150th Parish Anniversary.
Wednesday Mass 6:30 p.m.
Gather for a lovely, quiet, and meditative evening every Wednesday evening. This is a lovely way to end the day in the presence of God and more and more Holy Trinity members and friends are availing themselves of this opportunity.
