From Pastor Paul — Resurrecting Rooms

Beginning April 30, the basement under the sanctuary of Trinity is the new home of the “St. Pete Group,” one of the oldest and largest 12-step organizations in Pinellas County.  For the past few weeks, they have been hard at work, as have volunteers from Trinity, to clean out and renovate the space.

I am pleased that this agreement allows more of Trinity’s facility to be used as a resource for the community.  While a business might have been able to pay us more rent, the use of the space by a non-profit is more in line with our mission and values as a congregation.

It seems fitting in this season of Easter to celebrate not only the resurrection of Jesus and the power of that resurrection in our lives, but also the strangth and the vision it gives us, which allows us to resurrect an underused part of our building and give it new life.
