A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

"You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.""
-1 Peter 2:5-6 NIV

This week I was reminded that while we quibble over the little things of daily life, God is busy writing his story; a story that includes not only you and I but his entire creation. Some days we feel on top of everything and are able to sit back and reflect on a few pages of that story. Other days we get caught up in the stress and worries of every day life and fail to see the big picture of where our story is leading. In uncertain times like many of us are facing today, we need to trust that God is writing our story and that, in spite of the inevitable trials and low points, we are being led to a conclusion with a positive ending. If there is any way the Trinity community can play a positive role in your life, please let us know.

Blessings,

Travis Bandstra '06
Director of Alumni Relations
