An eNote from Rodney

Dear Trinity Church Family,
Last Sunday was a big day. First of all, a huge thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make the Fall Festival a success. There were many guests and the demonstration from Sun Soo Karate was a lot of fun. The winners for the Chili cook-off were Shannon Beasley, 3rd place; Mike Dempsey, 2nd place; and the name on the Chili Cup goes to Mike Pruett. Congratulations Mike. I also understand that the funeral service for Cynthia Henderson was lovely and Lee’s singing was moving.
Here is a reminder about some upcoming music from members of our congregation. Nolan Anthony’s Halloween concert will be Friday October 30 at 7:00 pm in the Trinity Sanctuary. Nolan will be playing classical selections that have a spooky and fun quality to them. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes and there will be treat bags fro them. Nolan’s concert will last about 40 minutes. At 8:00 Kathryn Brickey will perform from her new blue grass CD with her band at the Isis Theatre. That sounds like a great night in West Asheville.
You received a criptic message from me in the middle of the week about a medical procedure I have had. Let me spell that out. Since the end of June I have had several incidence of passing out. After some investigation by doctors, it was determined that I had a bit of faulty wiring in my heart that caused my heart to “pause” and stopped blood to my brain. On Tuesday morning I had a pacemaker implanted so now I am really wired. I am going to take it a bit easy for a couple of days and I will get some help for Sunday morning worship, but I will be with you in worship as we continue to look at Five Practices that can lead to being a fruitful congregation. This Sunday we will look at Sacred Worship. Forgive me if I don’t talk was long as I normally do on Sunday morning. I also need to be careful about physical contact so that I don’t jostle my new piece of gear. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday morning.
