SUNDAY FORUM: COME SIT AT THE WELCOME TABLE
The Sunday Forum meets most weeks at 9:15 am on Sunday morning. It is led by Bill and Marina Shaw.
The purpose of the Forum is to build community within Trinity and beyond. The Forum is informal. People
come together to share fellowship and good "energy" with each other. There is a weekly email sent to 35
people (if anyone wishes to be on the email list, please contact Bill or Marina) to remind people of the
topic for Forum. Weekly attendance at Forum varies from 8-15 people. The Forum meets in the Workman Lounge because of space and less interference on Sunday mornings. Don Crist, former Methodist minister, has been assists with Sunday Forum. Big thanks to Don for his support and help.
The Forum begins each week with a few minutes of silence, a time to collect thoughts and focus on our time together. There are general announcements of events in the church and in the community. People share information about their lives and families. Participants are invited to share a few short stories of "religion in the news" for the week. After these introductions, the Forum focuses on the weekly topic for discussion.
Topics covered in Forum change and most are discussed for a 4 - 6 week duration.
Please check out Facebook page on Saturday for the topic Sunday.

Greetings! I'm writing this on Friday morning with the sound of rain outside! Such a welcome sound after a stretch of
dryness. Bill and Marina will likely be welcoming grandchildren from London on Sunday and Bill asked me to teach in
his place. I am entitling Sunday's session this way: "The Day that God Moved Indoors." I've been thinking some about
how we can begin to see God as being everywhere and not just in the church building. I was so moved by Priest Nancy's
decision to meet people at Bakehouse Bread on Fridays. I thought it might be fun to look again at that day when Solomon
dedicated his brand new temple wondering if that was the day that God moved indoors.
Come on Sunday morning to Workman Lounge at 9:15 am and bring your thoughts and listening ears to see what new
ideas we can stir up! See you then.
