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, Workman Lounge on Sunday morning. Hope to see you there. Everyone is
welcome. The more voices present, the better our fellowship and discussion. If you seek community within Trinity,
this is one place to be present.
Topic for Day:---The Teachings of Jesus
What are the teachings of Jesus? How do the teachings of Jesus compare with teachings of great spiritual leaders
from other faith journeys? Who would you name as great spiritual leaders---past and present? What has been the source
of their spiritual practices? Are these spiritual teachings too difficult for the realities of our modern world? What is the
role of the church in following these teachings? What about Trinity? How do we consider the teachings of Jesus in
Christian faith when contrasted with concepts of "salvation" and "heaven" and "sin"?
These questions should take a few weeks to solve!!
See you on Sunday, 9:15am.
