Flat Clergy travels around the world via suitcase

From Houston

The clergy of Trinity Episcopal Church traveled over the summer to China, Australia, Jamaica, Alabama, Georgia and Massachusetts all from the comfort of church member’s suitcases.

Inspired by the children’s book “Flat Stanley,” Trinity Church members printed pictures of Rector Gerald Sevick, Assistant Priests Genevieve Razim and Eric Hungerford and Deacon Robert Horner to color, then took along their “Flat Clergy” as they traveled the world.

The mission was simple: The Flat Clergy served as a reminder to families of their church family back home, and how we are called to take the Gospel of Christ wherever we go. At each stop, they took photos and sent them to Parish Life Minister Molly Carr to share with the congregation.
