Trinity Family Letter
March 17, 2020
Greetings Trinity Family,
“I will lift my eyes up to the mountains; From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand.” Psalm 121:1-5
I have always had a love for mountains. In the early years of Trinity, my office (at least the first one that had a window) had a great view of Granite Mountain. Now my office has a large canvas photo of Mount Rainier in Washington. Mountains remind me to look up and remember heaven. Mountains make me realize how small I am. Mountains are ancient and remind me of the grandeur and power of my Creator. Mountains give me a sense of connection to my heavenly Father. In this strange time, this passage has been running through my mind to be reminded that our help comes from the Lord and He does not sleep. He is our keeper.
With this week’s school closure, our team of leaders and teachers are working hard to create a distance learning/online learning approach for our students to begin this coming Monday. It is our prayer and hope that we can stay connected with our students, families, and community members as much as possible through this time of “social distancing.” We are working to provide valuable education and discipleship experiences in keeping with our school’s values of Christ-centered classical education. Parents can expect to hear from us more about those plans by the end of this week.
I am blessed to have received a number of emails from parents and staff who are offering to help families who may have needs during this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to call or email me and let us know of any need you might have or if you just need some prayer or advice. This is a great time for the Trinity community to practice the “one anothers” of Scripture and be the body of Christ to one another. We are committed to doing everything we can to meet individual needs through this time.
God is with us!
