Life of the Beloved
Led by the Rev. Sarah Wood

Theologian Henri Nouwen offers us Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World. Rooted in relationship and liturgical understanding, Nouwen brings the reader through dogma laden methods of intellect and carries us into practical and enlivened exercises of love. This book is touchstone for thousands of folk, a simple yet utterly profound reminder of the life we are called into as God's Beloved. Sundays in June will be a gathering opportunity to visit with Nouwen's wisdom, in conference with some of his theological friends, and an entering into conversation about our own stories and the commission we share to embody the very life of God. You do not need to have read the book to participate. However, copies will be available at the class or can be picked up beforehand from Jo Rice at the Trinity office. Of course, Amazon has the book you can get online.

 


July 7 - August 18
Braving the Wilderness, The Quest for True Belonging
by Brene' Brown
led by Scott White and David Henson

Social Scientist (and Episcoplian) Brene Brown has taken the world by storm with her poignant observations about human life and ultimately the place of God in it. In this most recent work she tackles the human quest for belonging, redefining what it means in an age of increased polarization. She writes, "...in a culture that is rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with erosion of civility, iT's easy to stay quiet, hide behind our ideological bunkers, or fit in, rather than show up as our true selves...."

This conversation continues our goal at Trinity to stand in the Gospel's call to unity and justice, without falling prey to the belief that there is only one way to be united in Christ.
