A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."
    -Colossians 2:6-8 (NIV)

I hope that you will join the campus community in our gratitude for the opportunity to celebrate 50 years of Trinity over the past few weeks. The stories and photos of this amazing weekend are in the next sections of this newsletter for you to enjoy. As we continue celebrating, we also look ahead and continue, as Paul said above in Colossians, basing our work and our philosophy on Christ.
