Christine Ohlman Concert

Trinity Presents its Sixth Music for Music (M4M) Concert

Tickets are $30 for adults, $10 for students.

Sponsors:
Bronze: $100 with 2 tickets and program listing
Silver: $250 with 2 tickets,  program listing, and preferred seating
Gold: $500 with 4 tickets,  program listing, and preferred seating

Christine Ohlman, a 2017 inductee into the Blues Hall of Fame, and Rebel Montez will rock Trinity Church on the Green, New Haven, September 22, 2017 in special concert featuring songs from her six CDs, and upcoming album. Proceeds from the concert support the Music Program at the church including the Boys & Girls choirs.

Ohlman, Cliff Goodwin (guitar), Michael Colbath (bass) and New Haven native Larry Donahue (drums) will perform some select pieces with choristers of the Trinity Choirs: “Wade in the Water”, “The Deep End” and Al Green’s “Take Me to the River”.

Ohlman, (the “Beehive Queen,”), a long-time vocalist with NBC’s Saturday Night Live Band, and New Haven favorite, is a 2017 inductee into the Blues Hall of Fame of the American Heritage International Organization.

Ohlman is fresh from sold-out appearances at both the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival’s 2016 David Bowie tribute and the WC Handy Festival in Muscle Shoals.

This queen of blue-eyed rock n’ soul, who grew up loving equally the sweetness of a Memphis horn line and the raunch of an electric guitar riff–whether played by Muddy Waters, Keith Richards, or Pop Staples–teased her blonde hair into a beehive in honor of Ronnie Spector and never looked back. Known to tell audiences:” I come here tonight to set your souls on fire,” – on September 22nd- she will!

About Grace Awakening

Welcome to Grace Awakening, Trinity’s spirituality website.

Here you will find wisdom thoughts from various traditions, spiritual practices, seasonal reflections, and Trinity programs/events which will serve to enrich and support your spiritual journey.

“The spiritual life does not remove us from the world, but leads us deeper into it.” Henri Nouwen

Spiritual Wisdom

SPIRITUAL WISDOM

The Wisdom of THOMAS MERTON, spiritual writer, poet, social activist

The Value of SILENCE

In a world of noise, confusion and conflict, it is necessary that there be places of silence, inner discipline and peace. In such places LOVE can blossom.

It is in deep solitude and silence that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers and sisters.

Silence has many dimensions. It can be a regression and an escape, a loss of self, or it can be presence, awareness, unification, self-discovery. Negative silence blurs and confuses our identity, and we lapse into daydreams or diffuse anxieties, Positive silence pulls us together and makes us realize who we are, who we might be, and the distance between the two. Hence, positive silence implies a choice and what Paul Tillich called the “courage to be.”

Reflection

Julian of Norwich, English mystic, and spiritual teacher offers a positive spirituality, balanced by prayer and outreach to others.

The following daily reflections are taken from the book, All Will be Well – by Richard Chilson.

MY DAY BEGINS

We are all guided in this transitory life by our
God who is endless day. God shines forth this Light in the night time of our need. The Light makes possible our life. Our pain and sorrow derive from the night. But God is with us even in dejection, for we believe in the Light thanks to his mercy and grace, and we walk in it with wisdom and strength. So faith and hope lead us to love, and in the end – all will be love.

ALL THROUGH THE DAY

“May God make his face to shine upon you and bring you peace”
numbers, 6 24-26

MY DAY IS ENDING

Loving God, lead me with gentleness to faith, and from faith to hope, and help me to see that all leads only to charity and love.

Spiritual Practice

Breath Prayers

In your mind, quietly say the the prayer of your choice. Use very natural, gentle breaths, breathing at a pace comfortable for you.

Breathe out:   in your love

Breathe in:      Awaken me
Breathe out:    to Grace

Breathe in:      Be still
Breathe out:    my soul

Breathe in:      Fill me
Breathe out:    with hope ( other words –  joy, peace)

Breathe in:      Heal
Breathe out:    my heart

Stressed out, overwhelmed, distracted and looking for more peace in your life?
If so, you may benefit from mindfulness meditation.
Mindfulness meditation is a way to quiet the mind and body. When you use meditation, you turn inward, connect with a repetitive focus, such as the breath, a word or prayer. Your body and mind begin to quiet down and a state of physical and mental rest ensue.
Mindfulness meditation is not just an inward process.
When we become more peaceful, that energy and presence can grace those around us in such positive ways.

All are welcomed.

Trinity Players Supper Theater

Trinity Church on the Green, New Haven

Everyman’s Isle is a one act religious parody of reality television shows based on the morality play The Summoning of Everyman. The play takes place on the set of the reality TV Show “Everyman’s Isle”, as the Producer (God) sends the Critic (Death) to kick the star of the show Everyman off the island (the Earth). Everyman is stunned; he tries to find others who will go to the final corporate audit (the grave and judgment) with him. They agree at first, but each flees in terror at the idea of death, and will not go with him. Even Knowledge cannot go into the grave: only Good-Deeds accompanies Everyman to death and beyond. After, Knowledge hears the Angles singing, and the final Chorus tells us that Everyman is saved by his Good-Deeds.

Includes 3 course supper and beverages

Tropical theme Salad
Gilligan’s Pork Medallions
Pacific Sweet Potato
Pineapple upside-down cake
