We were up in Oregon (practice saying “Or-ee-gun” and not “Or-ee-GON”), went to be with Trinity Covenant, which is an absolutely splendid church — and I can say that about a lot of churches, and also about this one. Lots of good things going on; thriving at so many levels. Chris Haydon asked the community to deck out in red to symbolize the flame of the Holy Spirit, and I confess I’ve never seen so much red in a church — the only thing redder is a Cardinal game (which also inflames, but not in a holy manner). He is a master liturgist and did a wonderful job leading the service. I could go on, but it was our last Jesus Creed weekend of the school year. The more I see churches the better the Church gets.
If you get there, go south to Depoe City and have dinner at Tidal Raves. Great scenery and food.
