Stewardship Ministry Moments
…It is a story that God, I believe, wants me to share with you so you can see like a mirror I’m holding up to you that you are already evangelizing in all the ways that you go out into the world, and bring people into this space, and that sometimes those efforts result in a positive impact in people’s lives…

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…

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…
