Greetings in the name of Jesus!
Welcome to the newly updated website of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church! We have many new features and we are hoping (PRAYING!) to keep everything up-to-date and organized so that anyone who visits our page will learn more about our “Family of Faith!” Of course, the best way to learn about Trinity is to visit us on any Sunday morning at 10AM, joining us for worship. Still, we are hoping that this updated website will be another opportunity to reach others and share the Gospel of Hope with all in need.
Part of our website is the section that you are currently reading, called “Pastor’s Pax”. Why is it called Pastor’s Pax? Well, the Latin word ‘PAX’ means peace, so I’m hoping to use this open forum to speak peace to anyone who reads. Now, I’m not planning on using this to speak MY piece on any issues, but instead to speak God’s peace by the power of the Holy Spirit.
And why “by the power of the Holy Spirit?” Well, in his letter to the Philippians, St. Paul writes:
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
I pray that the Holy Spirit will guard my heart and mind while guiding my words in the midst of this open forum, so that anything written here will provide the peace of God by His power alone.
Looking forward to sharing with you all and praying that you will come and spend time with our “Family of Faith” at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in The Bronx, New York!
Peace, blessings & love,
