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.

  Hello Friends, 
   Sunday Forum will meet at 10:45am, Workman Lounge, on Sunday morning.  Plan to join the fellowship and discussion.  When YOU are not  
   present, our time together is less productive!

Topic for the day---

   We have been in "transition mode" for the last 2 weeks---transition from topic of attitude change.  

    Discussions have been rich and filled with fresh insights.  Thanks to everyone who has been present.  This week we will "try" to move

    to another topic that I would call "first-cousin" to attitude change!  

   Let's take a look at Mysticism.  What is it?  Where does it come from?  Is this considered a positive or negative attribute in our time?   Might

   we all be "mystics" but fail to recognize or listen to this part of our lives?  Who are people from the past and present whom you think of as  
   "Mystics"?  Are mystics always linked with religion?  Do all religions recognize mystics?  

   Key question:  is the very heart of all spiritual practice the core of mysticism?

   See you 10:45, Workman Lounge, Sunday morning.
