Open your Prayer Book, Change the World!

Nestled in every pew of every Episcopal Church in the country you will find a tool for changing the world. Indeed, each one of you has already held that tool in your hands. Many of you keep one in your homes. But the question is, do you know how to use it?
The Book of Common Prayer is a weapon against chaos. It is a time-tested tool for transformation–of ourselves, our community, and of our world. Join Dean Boston and a team of Trinity teachers as we learn how to open and use our Prayer Books, grow to be the people God made us to be, and change the world in Jesus’ Name.

I Love to Sing the Story, 10:15-10:50 a.m. in the Stirling Room – now a weekly class!
The hymns we sing at almost every liturgy at Trinity are statements of faith, praise, and lament. Have you ever wondered who wrote the text and the music, the theology behind the hymn, the tunes, and the stories of the hymn writers themselves? This class, led by lay members and clergy, explores these questions and more.

Contemporary Issues, 10:15-10:50 a.m. in the Daughters Room
A discussion of homelessness and climate disruption and the environment, and how we can faithfully respond to them as Christians. Led by various speakers. Contact Deborah Johnson for more information.

Episcopal 101, 10:15-10:50 a.m. in Keenan Chapel
A great starting point if you’re new to Trinity, or new to the Episcopal tradition. Led by clergy and lay facilitators
