Creating Authentic Christian Community in 2020

Recently, I had a conversation with a couple now visiting Trinity, who have visited churches in San Antonio for almost 4 years looking for genuine Christian community. As I spoke with them, I think I understood what they were looking for and I believe they can find it at Trinity. However, this kind of community […]

Hilarious Giving

Do you want to have some fun this new year? Then give! Paul points this out as he encourages the Christians in Corinth to help fellow church members suffering through famine:  Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you […]

How To Pray For Your Child

As a parent, I always have had the desire to pray for my children. As easy as that sounds, I have found myself struggling with the “how to” of that many times. I began to do some research about this topic and have found some things that were helpful to me and thought I might […]

Introducing the Married People’s Resource Center at Trinity Baptist

There are many books which promise to open the door to a happy marriage. Some have been around a long time (such as The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman). But, then, every now and then we pick up a new book and find it to be winsome as well as helpful. One such book […]

Investing Your Time Wisely in 2020

How quickly did 2019 pass for you? I know it went quickly for me! I have a sign on the wall in my offi ce that says, “How we spend our days is how we spend our lives.” Meaning, every day of 2019 you and I made choices that equaled “how we spend our lives” […]

Resources for the Church’s Care of People With Mental Health Problems

In the November 2019 Trumpet, I wrote about the beginning of an Ad Hoc group of Trinity members that want to help answer the question of how we can best support individuals and families impacted by Mental Illness. I also talked about the high probability that most of us at Trinity know someone who has […]

Getting Relationships Right

I attended the “Getting Relationships Right” conference in Nashville during November. The Search Institute developed this training for leaders of schools, after-school programs, and churches to strengthen the relationships we build with young people.  It is important to remember that the consensus in research shows very strongly that developmental relationships in families play a powerful […]

I and You Statements

  One of the most effective, yet simplest ways of facilitating open communication at home is to use “I Statements” in place of “You Statements”. We frequently refer to “I”and “You” Statements in this marriage blog because they are such effective tools in communicating feelings and attitudes clearly and honestly. “You Statements” “You Statements” are by nature accusatory and […]

The Value of Thankfulness

“Gratefulness is a central theme at this time of year. It turns out that giving thanks—and giving back—can yield a bounty in health rewards.” At first glance one would think this quote was taken from a religious publication such as a magazine or Bible study lesson. But no. I came across these words in a […]
