Wednesday at the Commons Classes

Wednesday evenings, September until June. Put a little soul refreshment in the middle of your week! Wednesday at the Commons is Trinity's midweek learning community, offering classes that open us to new ways of thinking, push us to go deeper in our relationships and commitments, and offer us new insights into each other and God. Service of the Holy Eucharist is at 5:30 p.m. in the Chapel, dinner is at 6:00 p.m. (suggested donation of $10), followed by a wide range of class options from 7:00–8:30 p.m. There is no charge for Wednesday classes. Childcare is available from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Sign-ups:

For the dinner, you must sign up in advance (by noon on Tuesday of that week), so that we may know how many to have food for. In person, dinner sign-up sheets are located at Trinity's Information Wall outside Kempton Hall.

Catechesis (Continues) 

Wednesdays, January 4-June 7. Led by Canon Julia McCray-Goldsmith and other Trinity clergy and laity. An ancient practice of spiritual exploration and formation in community. Catechesis is preparation for the rites of Baptism, Confirmation, Reception (from other Christian traditions) and Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows. You are welcome if you are seeking any of these rites, or none. At Trinity, this twenty-week  immersion in Scripture, history, worship and Christian practices is also a chance to learn more about this community of faith, meet all of the clergy and congregational leaders, and make friendships that will last a lifetime.

White Privilege/White Resentment (Continues)

This class meets April 19-June 7. Led by Keith Walters and Canon Raggs Ragan. Many commentators argue that White Americans enjoy and profit from particular privileges that come their way simply because of the color of their skin. At the same time, some of the these same commentators, among others, contend that a major force in the recent elections was the politics of White resentment. What might these two claims mean? ARe they contradictory in any way? Are the terms "privilege" and "resentment" the best way to thinking about whatever may be going on in terms of the experiences of White Americans? In this series of eight classes, we'll struggle with these and related issues as we examine the meanings of whiteness at this point in our country's history, drawing from several books on this topic.
