You're invited to attend Trinity Institute (TI2015), an annual conference that takes place in New York City -- but you can attend a simulcast conference January 22nd - 24th, 2015 at select local locations! We bring all the elements of the NYC conference to you via webcast.
This year's conference takes on the pervasive, overwhelming issue of economic inequality. TI2015 speakers have real-world experience making change happen. They will provide us with hopeful, practical tools we can use to make a positive economic impact.

Rock Point Summer Camp 2015 -- SAVE THE DATES NOW!
With only a week before Christmas, how about giving a week of Rock Point Camp as the best present ever! We’re busily working on exciting plans for the summer as well as preparing registration materials. Stay tuned! Look for updated registration forms and summer details in early January. For now, call your friends and save the dates to have fun at a week or two of summer camp.
A typical camp day includes a holy rhythm of community meals, singing, worship, special morning and evening programs as well as traditional camp fun of swimming, group games, canoeing, nature exploration, arts & crafts, wilderness shelter building and eat gooey s’mores by the fire. Campers will have an opportunity to learn new skills…build a fire and cook a meal on it, weave a basket, paddle a canoe, track an animal into the woods and more.
All campers who register before April 1, 2015 receive 5% off all registration fees. Still need help with the registration fee? Scholarships are available. For more information visit us online at www.rockpointcenter.org
Located on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain, Rock Point Summer Camp is in its 84th year.

The Rev. Liam Muller joined Trinity as Rector in September, 2014.
"Is it time for us to have a full Dinner Church, when we all cook together as well as eat and worship?” That was the question that St. Andrew’s congregation in St. Johnsbury set out to answer on the first Sunday of Advent.
A smaller-sized congregation that has experimented with various liturgical innovations for a few years, St. Andrew’s has experience with an Epiphany Brunch Church, an Annual Meeting Brunch Church, and an Ordination Dinner Church. But all these were done with the cooking “in advance” or as potluck, not as the community coming together to prepare the meal. Was it time to take that next step in offering a fuller experience of Dinner Church?
On Monday, Nov 17th, and Thurs, November 20th, eight regional events were held, bringing together clergy, lay people of faith, and legislators to enter into a dialogue about how Vermont's budgeting process and other legislation can be more aligned with the group's shared faith values of justice and compassion. The Clergy Caucus of VIA has come to a consensus on policy recommendations on Collection and Allocation of Resources and Wages and Benefits. Click here to download the document. These events served to unveil this document in every region of the state. The AP story on the events was picked up by multiple newspapers, including The Boston Globe, The Burlington Free Press, The Barre Montpelier Times Argus, The Rutland Herald, The Valley News (Lebanon, NH), The Caledonia Record, The Brattleboro Reformer and a story titled "Clergy promoting a moral economy" ran in the Waterbury Record.
