Dear Truro Family,

This summer we’re devoting our sermons to digging deeply into the Gospel according to Luke. As we spend time focusing on Jesus’ interactions with all sorts of people, listening to his messages, considering his questions, and peeling back all the layers of his parables, our prayer is that two things are happening:

First, that we would see Jesus, “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3).

Second, that we would see through Jesus, “for by him all things were created… and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 3:16, 17).

We all need this kind of spiritual double-vision. And that’s why we’re spending so much time in Luke this summer.

C.S. Lewis once wrote: “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

The gospels help that to happen. They invite us not only to look upon Jesus, but also to look through him. In this way, he is our vision, and he is our wisdom. He is the focal point of our life, and he is the light that illuminates our life. He is the Son of God that has risen, and he invites us to see his radiant light, and to see everything else by his light.

May we be a people who never grow tired of digging deeply into the gospel, and looking intentionally at Jesus, praying that he would be the object of our worship and the lens through which we see the world.

Your brother,

Jamie

Some share a life stage, while others are intergenerational. Some groups are geographically based, while others meet online. All of our groups share one thing in common – they’re communities committed to figuring out how to faithfully follow Jesus, together.

Pick a donation envelope, take it home and fill it with cash/check to match the envelope amount and drop in the offering on Sunday. Contact Summer Farinas for more info.

  • Our Buildings and Grounds Committee is hoping to identify parishioners who have a particular expertise, professional background or skill set in the following areas: architecture, construction, engineering, general contracting, landscaping, or other areas such as electrical, plumbing, roofing, painting. This list will help us to know who in our parish has an interest in these areas or a skill we may need. Please email Nancy Gordon with this information. The Building and Grounds committee is a very small committee but occasionally there is an opening. If you would be willing to serve on this committee in the future, please add that to your email.

TIPS Truro International Programs & Services

We are delighted to welcome Clare Mountfort as the new assistant director of TIPS.  Clare has long ties to Truro–she grew up in Fairfax and accepted Christ at a Truro youth event, and her in-laws were sent as Truro missionaries to Wales. Clare spent 20 years in France and has extensive experience working with people from around the world.  

TIPS Summer Programs are well underway. Our Conversation Clubs and Christianity Explored classes have spawned great discussions and deepening relationships. Fifty students are meeting one-to-one for conversation with volunteers, and several families are sharing meals with international families as well.

Fall ESOL classes begin on September 14. We encourage you to start praying about volunteering with this great ministry–look for more information soon or contact Myra Hinote.

Longtime Truro members Shyam and Mary Monaysar are asking to share their need for a new kidney for Shyam. While Shyam has been receiving dialysis for some time, it has become clear that a donation would give him the freedom and ability to live a longer, healthier and more normal life with his family. 

You can email Mary or call her 571.276.4770 for more information.
