Speaking of Faith

Every year in June, Trinity members get to hear their fellow church or staff members tell the stories of their faith. This Sunday is led by Tony Breuer. Watch the livestream here.

Tony Breuer and his wife Bonny were and are thrilled to have joined Trinity some nine months ago (thanks to Charlotte Lee, Ron Turbayne, Ruth and Paul Marston), and while fairly “new” to Trinity, are not new to this planet. Tony was recently commissioned as a Stephen Minister after rigorous training under Cindy Stancil, Scott Calhoun, Paul Marston, and Meredith Daniel. He participates in the Men’s Breakfasts, the Men’s Political Group, and in Rebekah’s Theological Discussion Group. He has participated in two vestries in the past and headed the Artists Guild at St Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, NC. Bonny currently participates in the Flower Guild and is a member of the Awakening Study Group at Trinity. She pursues an Acting Career. In the course of a career in Internal Medicine, Neurology and Art, Tony has encountered many situations…which have leant a certain existential flavor to his weekly “diet”. Multiple trips to the wilderness have been welcome relief. He will talk on how he came to understand questions such as “who are you?”, “why are you here”, and “what does it mean to have lived a life worthwhile?”…all in the spiritual domain. The talk will be mostly in images, his art plus photos. Bonny has a daughter, Bonny, here in Atlanta with two sons, Andrew, entering his third year in Orthopedic Surgery in Hartford CT and Christopher, starting a job in San Francisco in marketing research. Tony has two sons, Matt, a professional fly fishing guide and outfitter in Montana, and Russell who founded Spot and Tango, a human grade dog food company and lives in Bedford NY with his wife and three children.

Every year in June, Trinity members get to hear their fellow church or staff members tell the stories of their faith. This Sunday is led by Trinity staff member Jean Shults. Watch the livestream here.

Jean was born and raised in the small town of Canton, Pennsylvania, where the deer outnumber the people. In 2012, she moved to Wenham, MA to attend Gordon College and study Christian Ministries with minors in Music and Art. Before coming to Trinity in 2019, she worked at churches and camps in Massachusetts, California, and Florida. She loves cats, Taylor Swift, her husband, and her job

Every year in June, Trinity members get to hear their fellow church or staff members tell the stories of their faith. This Sunday is led by Bonnie Holliday. Watch the livestream here.

Bonnie grew up in Roopville, Georgia where family, friends and faith all intersected at the Baptist church she attended.   From a young age, she navigated the sometimes hilarious juxtaposition of conservative small town values with the ‘independent’ ideas of her smart, quirky parents.  These early experiences formed the basis of her life’s guiding principle: a good sense of humor and God’s grace trump almost all lines of difference.  Bonnie and her husband Lea have been members of Trinity for 11 years, and they have two young daughters–Kitty and Bess.

Every year in June, Trinity members get to hear their fellow church or staff members tell the stories of their faith. This Sunday is led by Scott Calhoun.

Scott married his wife Gloria at Trinity in August 1987 and became a member shortly thereafter. He is a long-time member of the Chancel Choir, has played in the adult Handbell Choir, and has sung with the Madrigal Singers. Scott has previously served two full terms and two partial terms (replacing a resigned member) on Session and has chaired the Worship and Music Committee. He is a Stephen Minister and serves as one of the leaders of Trinity’s Stephen Ministry program. He served on an Executive Pastor search committee and is one of the coordinators of the Friday morning Men’s Breakf ast meetings. Members with young children may know him as “Mr. Music” for his Sunday morning activities with the preschoolers. Scott and Gloria have one grown son, John. Scott is an attorney with the firm Hendrick, Phillips, Salzman & Siegel.
