Sunday Forum will meet at 9:15am, Workman Lounge, on Sunday morning. Look forward to seeing you. Each voice adds to our
good fellowship and discussion.
Topic for Day: What is Education?
Our friend, Fr. Mervyn Fernando from Sri Lanka, gave much thought to this question in his writings. He spoke about education
giving inner richness to life, not just making you better informed. He said that focusing on information is a very primitive idea of
education. For him, education should prepare you to be yourself, to celebrate the life that God has given to you. Education has 2
meanings, both beautiful: 1/ to draw out that which is within you, to reach your potential like drawing water from a well; 2/ to lead
you from darkness to light, from untruth to truth.
Join us for our discussion. We all have our own experiences with "education". Let us share and learn from each other.
See you on Sunday morning.

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.
