My husband John & I were married in the Chapel at Trinity. Scott Helferty, who officiated, said that Trinity “wasn’t just a pretty place to get married,” and that he would be watching for me on Sundays. OK. I am reliable. I’ve been at Trinity 38 years. I cannot imagine my adult life without Trinity: the building, my spiritual home and haven, my Trinity family, and the helpful, comforting guidance of dozens of clergy. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. The church school, chairing the Garden Committee (and dealing with the challenges of urban gardening), Buildings and Grounds, EFM, the Labyrinth Guild, Ushering, Pilgrimages with the Borgs and Cookie and Priscilla, and my parents’ ashes in the Memorial Garden. Professionally, I was an elementary teacher and librarian, and mom to our three children, now in their mid-30s. I look forward to bringing my history to the Vestry, but also the challenge of “Love One Another” and “Welcome the Stranger” in 2018.
