September 2017

Greetings all!

Summer is moving into Fall before our very eyes, and at the time of this writing in mid-August, I am still under several restrictions including reduced computer hours and no driving, yet I am hoping to return to Saturday and Sunday worship services as of Labor Day weekend! This, of course, will be dictated by my medical team. If you do not know by now, I have been absent from Trinity for the past 2-1/2 months due to a motor vehicle accident which occurred on the morning of June 10, 2017, on Route 903 in Penn Forest Township. As I continue to make progress with the help of Good Shepherd's therapy team and the folks from the Lehigh Valley Concussion and Head Injury Clinic, I’ve been given permission to very gradually return to my office and some pastoral duties at “a snail’s pace.” This has been quite an experience; one that I would not want to see anyone go through, but I continue to be in awe by all the cards and letters of encouragement from the people of Trinity and beyond.

Our new vicar, Vicar Richard Bergen, will be installed on Labor Day weekend during the worship services, and if all goes as planned, I will be present as we welcome him with a brunch immediately following the 9:30 am worship service on September 3rd! Vicar Rich will be serving his internship on a part-time basis over a two-year period, while finishing some senior level classes and working at his regular place of employment in the PA Dept. of Corrections. He will be staying in the “Vicarage” on a part-time basis as well. His anticipated date of graduation from seminary is May of 2018, and he will return to Trinity after graduation to complete his second year with us.

Dear Friends, this past summer has not been an easy one for all of us, and I, again, want to thank Rev. Bill Thompson, who covered for me on many Sundays giving up his summer in order that we would have some order and consistency, along with Pastors Kistler, Hazel and Denton Kees.

Pastor John Hassler will continue to cover what I am unable to do until I am fully recovered and literally “back on my feet” again.

Rally Day is going to be September 10th, so mark your calendars for the start-up of our new Sunday School and Confirmation year with classes held weekly at 10:45-11:45 a.m. Youth Group will also be starting in the month of September, and dates and times will be announced once Vicar Rich is on board.

Again, I thank God for all of you and the prayerful support I have experienced over this difficult time, and I am most certainly looking forward to seeing everyone again soon!

Your Pastor,

The Reverend Nancy L. Moore
