Remote life at Trinity continues. Scroll down for important details about what's coming up here at Trinity.
By now, the majority of you have likely heard news and read the note from Norma Aamodt-Nelson earlier this week. If you haven't already, read her letter here, and check out the CaringBridge site set up to collect notes for Norma. Donations made on that site support the ongoing work of CaringBridge, but the family intends to set up a scholarship fund, and details will be shared when plans are made. Note also that CaringBridge will never call for a donation, as some have reported scammers calling, which can be ignored and disregarded. 

The prayers of Trinity staff and leadership join those of all who have been touched by Norma over the years as she and her family navigate these difficult times. 
A note about Trinity's Neighbors in Need during this time of global pandemic: 
We thought you might enjoy seeing the Covid-19 version of Neighbors in Need………
The bins are full of food donations: including but not limited to canned soups, “cup-o-noodles”, protein bars, apples and oranges, hard boiled eggs, cheese sticks, pre-packaged cookies and candies, bottled water and juice, bread, rolls or bagels, and tuna fish.
Volunteers are at the doorway to hand out the grocery bags. These volunteers also offer socks and blankets.
Our volunteer team pre-bags these items into the white grocery bags that you see on the floor. Our Neighbors (typically 50 to 55) line up outside, always 6 feet apart, receive their groceries, then immediately leave the property.
Neighbors in Need continues to be an ecumenical/community ministry. Thank you to members and friends of Trinity as well as Gloria Dei Lutheran, St Michael/St Patrick Episcopal, Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Lynnwood Rotary, Northwest Center and American Heroes Café for your participation and donations.
It certainly isn’t the neighborhood relationship that we have enjoyed for the last 11 years, but it is the best we can do for now. This is how we stand together in prayer to love each other as we are commanded to do. Our Neighbors teach us through their consistent gratitude. 
God be with each of us,
Joan Jolly
Blessings and Peace,
Josh Judd-Herzfeldt
Trinity Communication Coordinator

online grocery help and other needs

A note from Dirk & Sandy Howe about online grocery shopping:
Is online grocery shopping a service that you would like to try? It doesn't need to be difficult. In some cases, pick up or delivery may be as soon as the same day! To get help understanding and ordering from websites/apps you can call the Howe's 425 742-0976. We are by no means, the experts but we can get you started.
--Dirk & Sandy Howe

If you, or someone you know is in need of assistance of any kind during these difficult times, or you have some wisdom you would like to share, do not hesitate to reach out to the Trinity staff or leave a voicemail at the Trinity office, 425-778-2159 (messages are being checked periodically through the week). We'll do the best we can to help connect folks with others who are ready to help out.
