Stewardship Ministry Moments

…I would arrive late, sit in the back, and leave early. I had nothing really to give, nothing really to share with anybody. I would come and say my prayers, receive communion, get what guidance I could get, ask what questions I could ask of God, and carry on. Over the course of time, those things changed. Trinity gave me cups of water and more cups of water and more cups of water. I got involved in teaching Sunday school and there met my wife Becky. We were married here 16 years ago. The cups of water that we received from this congregation were unending…

As many of you know, I grew up a military brat, which means that I moved about every two to three years. Every time we moved, we would search for a new church to attend and sometimes switch to a different denomination. As I became an adult, I stopped attending church outside of the high holidays. Several years ago, I was ready to finally begin my own search…

I came to Trinity many years ago when I was a student at Cleveland State University. The music director at Trinity was Heywood Alexander, and he was also a professor and choir director at CSU. He invited several of us to come and audition for Trinity’s choir. I used to tease him that the only reason he hired me was that I was the only alto that showed up. He graciously denied that, of course.

I am not “a cradle Episcopalian.” I know that a lot of us here at Trinity have come from other faith traditions. I like to call myself a lapsed Lutheran. And not just any Lutheran…

My name is Barbara Hermes, Rudi and I have been members here at Trinity since 1963, that would be 56 years. And we don’t like it here. Oops — let me revise that just a little, we like it here very much. Since 1963 Trinity has been our spiritual home.

It started when Rudi and I decided to get married. We discovered that there were some obstacles. One of us was Catholic and one of us was Lutheran. A wise Religion Professor suggested that we try Trinity Cathedral as a compromise.

And so we came to visit…
