Hello Trinity family,

Recently, Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings passed away after having served Congress since 1996. When he gave his opening address, he recited a 54-word poem by Dr. Benjamin E. Mays. Mays, a pioneering civil rights leader and the president of Morehouse College during Martin Luther King Jr.’s education there. It read…

I only have a minute.
Sixty seconds in it.
Forced upon me, I did not choose it,
But I know that I must use it.
Give account if I abuse it.
Suffer, if I lose it.
Only a tiny little minute,
But eternity is in it.

Our life is made of minutes. In the Old Testament book of Job, (14:5) it states, “A man’s days are numbered. You know the number of his months. He cannot live longer than the time You have set.” Our lives on earth have had a starting date and will have an ending date. The time God has given us is a gift, and we have the opportunity each day to use it in a way that will either honor Him or not. May we take advantage of each minute we have been given to reflect the love of our great God to those He places in our path every day.

Have a wonderful weekend!

be God’s,
Gregg Pinick
Executive Director/Head of Schools
