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.

Sunday Forum will meet at 9:15am in Workman Lounge on Sunday morning. Hope you will join our
time together---even if the weather may be snowy and cold! Big thanks to Don Crist for leading
Forum while we were away.
I want to begin new topic this week using book by Barbara Brown Taylor, "An Altar in the World".
Barbara Taylor is a religion professor, author and Episcopal priest. She lives in Georgia on a
working farm with her husband, Ed, and a yard full of animals! I think we will have good discussions
around her writings. You may wish to purchase one of her books. You can also "meet" Taylor on one
of her many UTube videos on internet.
Hope to see you on Sunday morning. ~~ Bill
P.S. If the weather is really bad, check email early Sunday morning for any changes
