Wednesdays@2: The Christmas Story in Art

Columbus Museum of Art
December 14 at 2:00 PM

Episodes connected with the Christmas story such as the Annunciation to the Virgin and Adoration of the Christ Child have been a favorite subject of artists from the Middle Ages to the 18th century. In this holiday-themed lecture, David Stark, chief curator, will look at varied approaches to the Christmas narrative, including examples from the permanent collection of CMA and from other American and European museums. Paintings, prints, and the art of the crèche will all be discussed; each demonstrating a striking range of styles that have inspired and sometimes startled viewers of the past and still resonate with modern audiences. Cost of this program is $20 for nonmembers (includes general admission) and $5 for members.

A request for In The Garden

ITGDear Trinity, Family and Friends,  
We are in desperate need of certain toiletries for ITG.  I have many men asking for every week,
1. Razors
2. Deodorant
3. Shampoo
4. Toothpaste.
Our supply cabinet is very very low and I have a request for these certain products every week. I try to buy some myself every week when I go to the store but I can not keep up on the needs by myself.  Please consider donating these items to ITG.  IF you travel and are able to keep some hotel toiletries that's helps tremendously (Joe Norris, hint hint). Please leave in the undercroft basement (kitchen counter) or put in the donation basket at church with a note for ITG. Please and thank you. We need to help our less fortunate friends.
In Gods Peace.

Winter is coming!

WinterThere are more people living outside than ever before in Columbus and they are cold and hungry. Trinity will once again be a warming station on weekdays for those who need shelter from the cold. Our visitors need men’s hats, men’s gloves and new athletic socks. They also need self-opening snack items. If you have men’s winter coats and jackets not in use, please bring them to church as well. Most of our visitors do not have warm clothing. Your continuing generosity is a blessing to many.
Thank you so much!
