TCC Statement on Racism

As a multi-ethnic community of faith, we have always been and remain committed to opposing racism of any kind. We particularly condemn the long-standing sin of racism against African-Americans in our country. As a historic church involved in the abolitionist and Civil Rights movements, it is our duty to work and pray toward peace and reconciliation.  We are called to “weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15) and stand up for the oppressed (Isaiah 1:17). We also confess our own sins of commission and omission that we have not done all we could have done. We will strive toward and pray for healing and unity to address these evils in our society.

Evensong Online

It’s been several months since we’ve been able to worship in person. As we watch hospitalizations and positive cases falling, we are preparing our facility to enter phase 1 of ‘re-entry’ into worshipping together. In the meantime, our Evensong services have moved online, as has many parts of our lives, to the Zoom platform. I was curious to see how worship ‘feels’ in this synchronous digital format, as opposed to the asynchronous format of Sunday morning’s live -stream. From the first moment of singing together while seeing everyone’s faces on Zoom, I knew that there was something different about this. There is a power, potency, and real presence when we can see each other, even through the screens, and know that we are praising God with one voice at the same time across the country and around the world. It has taken a few weeks to get the audio and video working well, but this past Thursday night was a very special time of prayer and praise for me personally. My roommate Sam joins us on guitar, and I (Adam) shared a few thoughts from Psalm 137 on the lament of Israel during a time of Exile. “How shall we sing the Song of the Lord…?” was on their lips as they were not able to worship in the Temple of Jerusalem. In the same way, we lament not being able to worship together, and bring our laments to God in worship.
