One Table Volunteers

Picture1.png

We had a wonderful One Table Café in January and February featuring both the Rev. William Carter III in January and Sarah Steward the COO of HomeFront in February.

One Table Café couldn’t take place without the help of volunteers. February marked the 70th dinner in our eight year history and our volunteers and staff have performed miracles serving over 8,500 meals.

We are also indebted to the 24 Princeton restaurants that have provided food. We tip our hats to all of them and thank them for their generosity.

It takes a lot of Trinity volunteers and staff to make this ministry a success and we are blessed to have the Rev. Paul Jeanes as our leader and as our inspiration for making One Table Café such a popular community restaurant.

If you want to sign up to be a volunteer please email:

One Table Café is on the third Friday of the month.

YOUR GOOD WORK

Sonia Waters: Addiction and Pastoral Care

people-sonia-waters.jpg

Sunday, February 17, 2019 at 9am
in Pierce-Bishop Hall

The Rev. Dr. Sonia Waters, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary, will lead our Adult Forum by addressing the treatment of addiction holistically as both a spiritual and a pathological condition 

Substance addictions present a unique set of challenges for pastoral care. Dr. Waters weaves together personal stories, research, and theological reflection to offer helpful tools for ministers, counselors, chaplains, and anyone else called to care pastorally for those struggling with addiction. 

She uses the story of the Gerasene demoniac in Mark’s Gospel to reframe addiction as a “soul-sickness” that arises from a legion of individual and social vulnerabilities. She includes pastoral reflections on oppression, the War on Drugs, trauma, guilt, discipleship, and identity.

For a taste of what to expect, check out the Rev. Drs. Kara Slade and Sonia Waters in their October 31, 2018 webinar for the Society of Scholar Priests:

CUSP Concert: Variant 6 Presents ‘Fall and Decline’

CUSP_VariantSix_CCr4_Vertical.png

For the final concert of season four, CUSP is proud to host Philadelphia-based vocal sextet Variant 6.

Princeton is the second stop on their tour of Greg Brown’s new work Fall and Decline. The piece, composed for voices and electronics, is based on texts of Sadakichi Hartmann, Eprenius, Todd Hearon, Edward Gibbon, and Omar Khayyam. The composition contemplates the inevitable decline of all things natural and manmade. Variant 6 pairs this new work with other pieces for voices and electronics, as well as selections of Medieval and Renaissance music.

This concert is FREE! Donations are accepted and appreciated.

About Variant 6

Variant 6 is a virtuosic vocal sextet that explores and advances the art of chamber music in the twenty-first century. The ensemble's work includes concertizing throughout the United States, commissioning substantial new works, collaborating closely with other ensembles, and educating a new generation of singers and composers.

Variant 6 believes that the process of compromise achieved from the diversity of opinion and specialty of its six individual artists can create deeply impactful experiences for its audiences, collaborators, and students.
