Holy Trinity is starting a Prison Book Ministry. You can help by donating used books, which will be sorted and sent to either Stateville Correctional Center in Joliet or Fox Valley Adult Transition Center in Aurora.
On Saturday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m., volunteers from HTLC will prepare then serve a meal at The Crib youth shelter (at Lakeview Lutheran, 835 W Addison). We need volunteers to provide food items, cook, and serve the meal. Head to our volunteer site to find out more and sign up.
Lenten Insights: Learning to See amid White Privilege
In a classic Lenten gospel, those who claim they can see are really blind, while a man born blind is healed, receiving not only sight, but insight into the meaning of faith. You are invited to Holy Trinity’s 2014 Lenten retreat in which we will consider the issue of white privilege in our society and how our congregation can be an agent of resistance. Lent is a time to struggle with all that leads us from God and one another, and this retreat will provide new ways of seeing as we seek to embody God’s justice in our world. This congregational Lenten retreat is sponsored by Holy Trinity’s Antiracism Task Force and Congregation Council and is open to all members and friends. Leaders will be The Revs. Linda Johnson-Seyunkulo and Michael Russell, members of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod’s Antiracism Team.
Please also consider reading Holy Trinity’s 2014 Lenten book: The Heart of Whiteness by Robert Jensen.

Greetings from Pastor Mueller
Holy Trinity is unlike the churches most of us grew up in. Because it is fluid and ever-changing, the congregation has a remarkable spirit of openness and vitality. Yes, we value our Lutheran heritage and the ancient roots of our liturgy, yet we delight in a faith that is ever new and infused with a message for the needs and concerns of our contemporary world. As somebody recently put it: Our faith is two thousand years old, but our thinking is not.
