Sunday Women in the Bible Series

Where is Eve when Adam is given that inauspicious command not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? And where is Adam when she later plucks that dangerous fruit? How much power does a matriarch like Rebekah have in her family, over her own fate and those of her children? What are the biblical writers trying to tell us when the future of all Israel turns on the loyalty of a foreign prostitute or the bravery of an unnamed woman in the heat of battle? What do the arguably scandalous women mentioned in Jesus’ genealogy in Matthew say about his mother and about what sort of savior he will become? Join us Sunday mornings from September 9 through October 14 at 9:30 am in Gardner Hall as we read stories of women in the Bible and try to better understand their place in the social, economic, political, and religious spheres of their day, and as we ask how their stories might, and might not, inform our own.

Sessions will be led by:

  • Melissa Tubbs Loya, PhD in Hebrew Bible (Sept 9, 16, 30, and Oct 7);
  • Becca Stevens, Founder of Thistle Farms (Sept 23); and
  • Deacon Teresa Houser, Executive Director of Magdalene Omaha (Oct 14).

Election Day Vigil
Nov
6
8:00 AM08:00

Election Day Vigil

This is a time in our nation's history in which division over candidates, policies, and partisanship can run deep. This has been the case for a good while now and appears to be the situation as we head into another election season for the “midterm” elections. Two years ago, on Election Day in November of 2016, Trinity held an all-day prayer vigil to pray for peace and unity in the country.
That prayer vigil was warmly welcomed by the parish and many outside the parish and so we are planning to hold another vigil on Election Day this year, Tuesday, November 6, 2018. The Prayer Vigil will be held throughout polling hours 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM in Nebraska (in the Central Time Zone) and will include services throughout the day as well as time for silent prayer. All are invited to stop into Trinity Cathedral for a few minutes, a few hours, or the entire day to join us in the vigil.
The time we will spend together will be completely non-partisan. There will be no discussion of candidates, campaigns, or issues. We will simply offer our prayers and engage in meditation. The vigil was developed as a way of offering a sanctuary of peace in the midst of a tense time, and helping us all to offer our lives, our leaders, and our nation into God’s care.”


The specific schedule for November 6th is as follows:
8:00 AM  Morning Prayer
12:00 Noon  Holy Eucharist
5:30 PM  Evening Prayer
7:45 PM  Compline


At all other times there will be at least one person praying in the church. All are welcome to join in the silent meditation, the prayer services, or both. Brother James will post more information as we near Election Day and will be asking for volunteers to sign-up for “prayer slots” throughout the twelve-hour vigil.

Season of Advent Begins
Dec

8:30 AM08:30

Season of Advent Begins

The word Advent means “coming.” It is a time to slow down, be quiet and meditate about the real meaning of Christmas. These four weeks before Christmas are a time to prepare our hearts and our lives as we wait for the coming of Jesus. We focus on the promise that God made to his people and how that promise was fulfilled in Jesus. Advent is also the beginning of the liturgical year. The season begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and ends on the day before Christmas. It may be a time for new beginning for us as Christians.

In antiquity, purple dye was very expensive, so purple came to signify wealth, power and royalty. Therefore, purple is the color for the season of Advent, which celebrates the coming of the King. Many churches use blue in Advent which signifies hopeful expectation and is traditionally associated with the Virgin Mary. Somewhere along the way the third candle of the Advent wreath turned pink in honor of Mary. Originally, Advent was a solemn fast in preparation for Christmas, so the custom extended to the third Sunday in Advent was meant to liven it up a little bit.

Join us for Holy Eucharist at 8:30 am and 10:30 am on Sunday!

Summer Series with Our Ecumenical Neighbors

Please join us for three-sessions entitled “The Gospel and the Kingdom: Christian Witness in Downtown Omaha” on Thursdays, August 2, 9, and 16 at 6:00 pm with Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church and First Central Congregational Church (UCC).

In the midst of our differences, we are stronger together in our dedication to serving the gospel.

-The first session will be held at Trinity Cathedral on August 2 at 6:00 pm and will be a panel discussion that explores the way in which the gospel informs our real world engagement and witness.

-The second session will be held at Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church (2650 Farnam St) on August 9 at 6:00 pm and will present a “case study” of the highly innovative Kountze Commons medical and behavioral health clinics.

-The third session will be held at First Central Congregational Church (421 S 36th St.) on August 16 at 6:00 pm and will be a facilitated conversation about what we might be called to do together as a witness to the gospel in downtown Omaha (work around race, economics, etc.).

(Note that the Wednesday Evening Bible Study will meet on these three Thursdays instead of Wednesdays.)
