Adult Forum Series Announced: 12 Lives -- Faith, Action, Witness

November 2, 2017

On 12 Sundays at Trinity this year, and with the guidance of guest speakers, we taking a close look at 12 lives of faith, action and witness:  men and women from different eras in the life of the wider church, and beyond. How did they live into their faith in their own time, culture, and community?

We invite you to think of these people of the past as 12 lives waiting to be clasped, and the guest presenters as 12 other lives made new, in some way, by the witnesses they have discovered and will present to you. We kicked off the season in October with the life of Thomas Aquinas, presented by Prof. Mark Jordan of Harvard Divinity School. Please mark your calendar for Sundays at 10:15 a.m and plan to be with us!
