SUMMER 2015

Dear Members and Friends of Trinity U.M.C.:


The summer of 2015 is almost here. Summer brings with it a time of rest and relaxation and reflection. I have shared with you that God longs to hear and to be
heard through prayer. The ultimate purpose of prayer is to deepen and develop our
relationship with a loving and holy God. Just today I read some profound words
from Max Lucado that I think are deeply profound. I hope and pray they are as
meaningful to you as they are to me.
Max Lucado writes; Imagine yourself in a dark room. It is daylight outside, but it
is dark within. The windows are closed, the drapes are drawn, and the shutters are
tight. The room yields no light. You fumble your way around the room, but progress is slow and the path is painful. Stubbed toes, scraped knees, skinned shins: it
is hard to walk in a dark room. Just as hard as it is to walk in a dark world. Many
try and many are wounded as a result, tripping over their problems, bumping into
one another in the shadows, walking into walls. No wonder the world is so full of
pain. We are insecure because we cant see who we are. We are unsure because
we dont know where we are going. But every so often a beam of light slices
through the blackness. A curtain is drawn, a window is raised, and a shaft of light
penetrates the darkness. What was dark is now bright, what was opaque is now
clear. What was stale is now fresh.
What a difference. When the light comes in, peace comes in. Moments before, our
steps were timid. Now there is sureness to our step, a confidence to move through
the corridors of light opening one window after another. Why? Because once
weve walked in the light, we dont want to walk in the darkness anymore. Amazingly, this peace, this confidence began with the single gesture of opening windows.
What are these windows? The windows of prayer and praise. Praise opens the
window of our hearts, preparing us to walk more closely with God. Prayer raises
the window of our spirit, enabling us to listen more clearly to the Father. Choose
to leave the windows closed and the curtains shut, and you choose to live in a cold
dark world. Choose to open the windows of praise and prayer, and you will allow
your Father to bring light and warmth into your world. So throw back the curtain and see His light. Open the window and hear His voice. Raise the glass and
feel the gentle breeze of the Holy Spirit. Allow your world to be warmed and illuminated. As you open the windows of prayer and praise, remember this holy
promise: I will open the windows of Heaven for you (Malachi 3:10).
Enough said. Keep the faith! Ill see you in Church on Sunday.
Grace and Peace
Rev. George R. Patterson, MDiv.
Senior Pastor

Food Safety Tips for a Safe


and Healthy Summer
Health Outreach Ministry
Dr. Dot Baker
Heres your annual food safety message about food prep, cooking, and eating.

Please Eat Safely This Summer


WASH Hands, Utensils, and Food Preparation Surfaces - Food safety begins with hand-washing even in outdoor
settings. Use a water jug, soap, and paper towels. Use moist disposable towelettes to clean your hands. Keep all utensils
and platters clean when pr epar ing food.
PREPARE Fruits and Vegetables Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables - (including those with skins and r inds that
are not eaten) under running tap water before packing them. Packaged fruits and vegetables labeled "ready-to-eat,"
"washed," or "triple washed" need not be washed. Rub firm-skin fruits and vegetables under r unning tap water or
scrub with a clean vegetable brush as you rinse.
SAFE GRILLING Tips - Marinate foods in the r efr iger ator , not on the counter or outdoor s. If some of the mar inade is to be used as a sauce on the cooked food, reserve a portion separately before adding the raw meat, poultry, or
seafood. Don't reuse marinade. Don't use the same platter and utensils that pr eviously held r aw meat or seafood to
serve cooked meats and seafood. If you partially cook food in the microwave, oven, or stove to reduce grilling time, do
so immediately before the food goes on the hot grill.
When it's time to cook the food, cook it thoroughly. Use a food thermometer to be sure the food has reached an adequate
internal temperature before serving. Beef, veal, and lamb steaks and roasts--145F for medium rare, 160F for medium,
and 170F for well done. Ground pork and ground beef--160F. Ground poultry--165F. Poultry breasts--170F. Whole
poultry (take measur ement in the thigh)--180F. Fin fish--145F or until the flesh is opaque and separates easily with
a fork. Shrimp, lobster, and crabs--the meat should be pearly and opaque. Clams, oysters, and mussels--until the shells
are open. Grilled food can be kept hot until served by moving it to the side of the grill rack, just away from the coals
where it can overcook.
SERVE Food Safely - Keep cold foods COLD and hot foods HOT. Do not use a plate that previously held raw
meat, poultry, or seafood for ANYTHING else unless the plate has first been washed in hot, soapy water. Hot
food should be kept hot, at or above 140 F. Wr ap well and place in an insulated container .
Foods like chicken salad and desserts in individual serving dishes can also be placed directly on ice or in a shallow container set in a deep pan filled with ice. Drain off water as ice melts and replace ice frequently. Don't let perishable food
sit out.
MAKE Ice cream - Ever y year homemade ice cr eam made with r aw eggs causes sever al outbr eaks of Salm onella
infection. Instead of raw eggs, substitute a pasteurized egg product, egg substitute, or pasteurized shell eggs to decrease
this risk. You can also use a cooked egg base or prepare it without eggs. Even when using pasteurized products, the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture advise consumers to start with a cooked base for
increased safety, especially if ser ving people at high r isk. Finally, ensur e that the dairy ingredients such as milk
and cream in homemade ice cream are pasteurized.
TRANSPORT Food - Keep COLD food COLD. Place cold food in a cooler with ice or fr ozen gel packs. Cold
food should be held at or below 40F. Consider packing beverages in one cooler and perishable foods in another. Meat,
poultry, and seafood may be packed while it is still frozen so that it stays colder longer. Be sure to keep raw meat, poultry, and seafood securely wrapped so their juices do not contaminate cooked foods or r aw foods such as fr uits and
vegetables. After washing fruits and vegetables, dry them with a clean cloth towel or paper towel before packing them.
Keep the cooler in your air -conditioned car, rather than in a hot trunk. Limit the times the cooler is opened. DISCARD
all perishable foods if there is no ice in the cooler or if the gel packs have thawed. If you have questions, please contact
the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition's (CFSAN) Outreach and Information Center at 1-888- 723-3366.

Often, environmental and physical conditions can make it


hard to stay cool. Heat-related illness is often caused or
made worse by dehydration and fatigue. Exercising during hot weather, working outdoors, and overdressing for
the environment increase your risk. Drinking alcohol also
increases your risk of dehydration.
Many medicines increase your risk of a heat-related illness. Some medicines decrease the amount of blood
pumped by the heart (cardiac output) and limit blood flow
to the skin, so your body is less able to cool itself by
sweating. Other medicines can alter your sense of thirst or
increase your body's production of heat. If you take medicines regularly, ask your doctor for advice about hotweather activity and your risk of getting a heat-related
illness.
Other things that may increase your risk of a heat-related
illness include:
Age. Babies do not lose heat quickly and they do not
sweat effectively. Older adults do not sweat easily and
usually have other health conditions that affect their ability to lose heat.
Obesity. People who are overweight have decreased
blood flow to the skin, hold heat in because of the insulating layer of fat tissue, and have a greater body mass to
cool.
Heat waves. People who live in cities are especially
vulnerable to illness during a heat wave because heat is
trapped by tall buildings and air pollutants, especially if
there is a high level of humidity.
Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart failure, and
cancer. These conditions change the way the body gets rid
of heat.
Travel to wilderness areas or foreign countries with high
outdoor temperatures and humidity. When you go to a
different climate, your body must get used to the differences (acclimate) to keep your body temperature in a normal range.
Most heat-related illnesses can be prevented by keeping
the body cool and by avoiding dehydration in hot environments. Home treatment is usually all that is needed to
treat mild heat-related illnesses. Heat exhaustion and
heatstroke need immediate medical treatment.
Check your symptoms to decide if and when you should
see a doctor.

Heat-Related Illnesses A healthy body temperature is maintained by the nervous


system . As the body temperature increases, the body tries
to maintain its normal temperature by transferring heat.
Sweating and blood flow to the skin (thermoregulation)
help us keep our bodies cool. A heat-related illness occurs
when our bodies can no longer transfer enough heat to
keep us cool.
A high body temperature (hyperthermia) can develop rapidly in extremely hot environments, such as when a child
is left in a car in the summer heat. Hot temperatures can
also build up in small spaces where the ventilation is
poor, such as attics or boiler rooms. People working in
these environments may quickly develop hyperthermia.
High temperature caused by a fever is different from a
high body temperature caused by a heat-related illness. A
fever is the body's normal reaction to infection and other
conditions, both minor and serious. Heat-related illnesses
produce a high body temperature because the body cannot
transfer heat effectively or because external heat gain is
excessive.
Heat-related illnesses include:
Heat rash (prickly heat), which occurs when the sweat
ducts to the skin become blocked or swell, causing discomfort and itching.
Heat cramps, which occur in muscles after exercise
because sweating causes the body to lose water, salt, and
minerals (electrolytes).
Heat edema (swelling) in the legs and hands, which
can occur when you sit or stand for a long time in a hot
environment.
Heat tetany (hyperventilation and heat stress), which
is usually caused by short periods of stress in a hot environment.
Heat syncope (fainting), which occurs from low
blood pressure when heat causes the blood vessels to expand (dilate) and body fluids move into the legs because
of gravity.
Heat exhaustion (heat prostration), which generally
develops when a person is working or exercising in hot
weather and does not drink enough liquids to replace
those lost liquids.
Heatstroke (sunstroke), which occurs when the body
fails to regulate its own temperature and body temperature continues to rise, often to 105 F (40.6 C) or
higher. Heatstroke is a medical emergency. Even with
immediate treatment, it can be life-threatening or
cause serious long-term problems.

Commencement is a Beginning....
by Gustavus Federated Church,
Gustavus, Ohio
It is of interest that the name given to graduation ceremonies is commencement. This word signifies
not an ending, but the act of beginning. It refers to the beginning of the next phase of life, for which the educational
process has prepared us. That new phase may be a full-time job, marriage, additional education or some combination of
these, but whatever that next phase is, there is a real sense in which the end is also the beginning.

BIBLE STUDIES

Coming this fall in the Sanctuary


WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY
Every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. beginning
September 10
Join us every Wednesday night this year as we continue our study of the non-Pauline letters of the New Testament:
James, 1 & 2 Peter and 1 & 2 & 3 John. This year we begin with the book written by Christs half-brother: James. At
times this has been a controversial book: a book Martin Luther called an epistle of straw. But it is a fascinating journey
of faith put into action. We then continue with the books written by Peter. Yes, Peter wrote two books of the Bible that
prophetically describe and refute the atheistic theory of evolution that was developed 1900 years after the book was written. The year will conclude with the three epistles written by John.

1 & 2 Peter

1 & 2 & 3 John

ASK THE REV


Q. Is God really mindful of every bird that falls as implied by Matthew 10:29?
This verse shows a loving God that is concerned about every aspect of his creation. It also shows
that he is involved in His creation and wants us to be as well. The following article is by Dr.
Maury Robertson who has the best on-line Biblical Greek class available. Im taking this class
(its just $8.00 a month and well worth every penny). In addition to the classes, he gives very
thoughtful articles. Checkout the class at http://greekforeveryone.com/ and check out his most
recent article on this very verse.
My wife is pretty sure I am going to contaminate her with horrible parasites. Everywhere I drive I keep an eye out for
freshly splattered birds by the side of the road. When I spot one I screech to a halt, back up, turn on the emergency lights
and climb from the car to investigate, usually waving off a crowd of turkey vultures as I approach. I consider it my duty
to say a few words over the dearly departed. Then, as a memorial, (and this is the part Julie hates) I pull a few feathers to
take home and put in the pages of whatever book I happen to be reading. One day I hope to have a fully feathered library, or as Julie would claim, a fully parasitic library.
I realize this is odd behavior, but in my defense, let me make it clear that I am under no illusion that nature is not cruel. I
understand that almost one hundred percent of her victims are buried in the tomb of the unknown. But thanks to me, not
all of them are. I keep a feather for the same reason children keep some token of their parents. It's a reminder that life is
precious beyond all logic, that nothing is ever just road kill.
Julie may be right. One day I may infect us both out with some dread disease picked up in the fulfillment of my self imposed duties as undertaker. But I would rather die of a parasite than feel like one. What are we anyway? Billions of
leeches sucking away at each other? Does it really matter whether we live or die? One of the best things Jesus ever said
was that God notices it every time a sparrow falls. That's a lot of noticing. And it's why it doesn't seem out of line for me
to stop and honor the few that fall along my way.
Dr. Maury Robertson http://greekforeveryone.com

CONGREGATIONAL CARE
Summer is here and for many that is a time for vacation and fun in the sun, yet for some of our family members life continues as usual, and they enjoy getting their monthly cards with thinking of you and birthday wishes, and some are still
in need of our baking team. Please remember to check your bulletin each week to see who needs your thoughts and
prayers and also who have lost loved ones and need a note of sympathy and encouragement.
LUNCH BUNCH
Our June lunch bunch is on June 10 at 11:30, and we will have our summer kick-off picnic and enjoy our time of fellowship and our entertainers, Dee Buchley and Shelly Messick. You be sure to attend, and see who is on their to do list to
share in their fun and song this year. It could be you, and you dont want to miss it. Please make your reservations no
later than June 8 by calling the church office. You dont have to be a retired person to attend.
I am working on next years programs and it is shaping up to be an exciting year with new presenters on our line up.
Have a great summer.

JUNE
READY TO EAT MEAT Canned ham, Spam, beef stew, chili,
pork & beans, spaghetti & meatballs,
Vienna sausage, corned beef, etc.

Bring any food


you want:
canned, boxed
or packaged!

The food themes for the Lazarus Food Pantry in the next three months are as follows: June: Ready-to-eat meat such as
canned ham, Spam, beef stew, chili, pork and beans, spaghetti and meatballs, Vienna sausage, corned beef, etc.;
July: Ready-to-eat snack items such as granola bars, crackers, fruits, pudding, and juice boxes; August: "Whatever"
you would like to donate that is canned, boxed, or packaged. Some suggested items are cereal, pasta and sauce, peanut
butter and jelly, tuna and chicken helper, canned soups, vegetables and fruits, and ready to eat meat and snack items.
As always, the Food Pantry greatly appreciates any donated food items. There is a continuing need for large diapers:
sizes 3, 4, and 6, as well as mens and womens personal hygiene items. They also have a need for the plastic grocery
store bags that are used to line the brown paper bags before packing with the food items. The blue Wal-Mart plastic bags
seem to work especially well, but any plastic grocery bags would be greatly appreciated. During the summer worship
schedule, we will be collecting food and non-food items at the 9:00 a.m. Riverwalk Service, as well as in the back of the
church sanctuary at the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. services. Trinity has reached 66, 775 food items since the beginning of
this program in 2005. Thank you again for your support!
In support of Trinity's faith-based partnership with Choices Academy, the Lazarus Food Pantry agreed to supply bags of
groceries to needy students to sustain them over weekends during the month of May, i.e. the remainder of the school
year. (There's hope that the Maryland Food Bank will provide for these students next school year.) So far 31 bags have
been donated to at-risk Choices students, and the feedback from students, their families, and Choices staff has been very
positive.
The collection of #10 Cans of vegetables, tomato sauce, etc. for Halo and the Christian Shelter is continuing. In May the
cans were donated to the Christian Shelter, and in June it will be Halo's turn. Thanks for supporting this worthy project!
As part of its continuing commitment to Salisbury Urban Ministries, on May 9, a team of Trinity volunteers headed by
Jennifer Doyle served warm meals to 120 needy, hungry, and very grateful diners at Grace United Methodist Church.
Sharing food and fellowship on a beautiful Saturday morning, .what a great a way to start the weekend! Our next day to
serve is Saturday, October 3.
Norm and Lorna Lyster and their team will continue to serve hot meals to the poor and hungry at the Joseph House soup
kitchen on the third Wednesday of every month during the summer months.
Thank you again for your generosity and faithful support of Trinity's diverse mission projects.

Thank you!

Sincere thanks and appreciation for the cards, prayers,


and encouragement following my recent illness.
Helen Burns

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the


congregation for the many cards, notes, and calls I received while in the hospital and nursing home after my
surgery and also to the church staff and pastors for their
visits.
Thank you,
Lewis Carman

Salisbury Urban Ministries Fundraiser


Youre invited to an Applebees Flapjack Breakfast
to support Salisbury Urban Ministries
Cost: $7 per person

Words cant describe how grateful we are to be part of


such a warm, caring church family. The loving support
and the many acts of kindness our family received after
the loss of Eleanor will never be forgotten. The many
cards, phone calls, and visits expressing sympathy during
this time of need helped in lifting our spirits. She lived a
long, happy, and adventurous life, and we will miss her
dearly. We will live and begin to heal by recalling the
many wonderful and fond memories we have of Ellie. It
is comforting knowing our family at Trinity cares and is
praying and thinking of us during our grieving. Many
thanks again for your gentle and kind support.
In Christian love,
Sara Belle and Sheldon Larmore
Bob Hoekstra

When: Saturday, June 13


Time: 8:00 a.m.10:00 a.m.
Where: Applebees
2703 North Salisbury Boulevard
Ticket Information: Contact S.U.M. at (410)749-1563

I send my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for the


cards and visits before, during, and after my surgery.
Trinity Christians share their love and walk the walk.
Be proud! I send my love back to each of you. God is
good!
Thanks to all,
Beth Henderson

A SPECIAL

THANK YOU
TO OUR
SERVICE PERSONNEL
The summer months hold special significance for our
country: Memorial Day is May 25, Flag Day is June 14,
and Independence Day is July 4. We are all blessed to
live in this country and to have men and women who are
willing to sacrifice to protect our freedoms. We would
like to thank all those who are serving or have served.

Thank you for awarding me one of the scholarships


this year. It was a great help financially, and I was honored to receive the award. Thank you for believing in me
and my future academically.
Sincerely,
Matthew Baysinger
Thank you for all of the cards and prayers from Trinity
members while my mother, Arline Wiley, lived at Atria
and for the visits from Reverends Patterson, Vroman, and
DeFino, especially towards the end of her blessed life.
Your kind expressions of sympathy meant a great deal to
all of us.
Claudia Young and family

CURRENTLY SERVING

I would like to thank everyone for their love, kindness,


prayers, cards, letters, and the delicious cake I received
during the loss of my brother. What a great comfort it is
to know that so many care about you. Christine and I
love all of you. Thank you.
