Clergy Notes – February 17, 2023

Dear Truro Family,

Over the next few weeks, you’re going to hear us talk a lot about Tuesday night dinners…

First, this Tuesday, February 21 we’ll have our annual pancake dinner. Come anytime between 5–7 PM for all-you-can-eat pancakes, and all-you-can-handle “dad jokes.” Enjoy a relaxed time of food and fellowship, and the long-awaited pancake eating contest!

Second, starting the following week on February 28 (and lasting all throughout the season of Lent), Tuesday nights will be “Community Nights” here at Truro. Every Tuesday we’ll have a different theme for dinner (the first week will be a staff-vs-vestry chili cook-off!), and everyone will be welcome to come, enjoy a meal, and stay for as long or as briefly as they’d like. We’ll nudge the timing of these dinners a little later than Shrove Tuesday, to make it easier for folks to make it after work. Stay tuned.

Why all this talk about dinners? Especially in Lent? The goal is simple: that as we share meals together as a church, we’ll get to know one another better. We’ll grow closer in community. From our children to our seniors, newcomers to old-timers, and everyone in-between.

I’m praying that God will use these next seven Tuesdays to strengthen the pillar of community here. And give you one less meal to have to cook!

See you this Sunday (and next Tuesday!)

Your brother in Christ,
