Nathan has officially left the building! Our beloved Dean is off on his three-month sabbatical, and while we're sad to see him go (even for a little while), we're so excited to hear all about his journeys. That's why we're inviting you to stay in touch with him-and each other-during the summer months by entering into a community-wide gratitude practice from now until the beginning of the program year in September! Nathan will be posting updates periodically using the hashtag #6degreesofgrateful, and we invite you to do the same! Share your posts about what makes you feel grateful - an experience, an event, or just an everyday moment - with your Trinity family on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. You'll be able to see what other Trinitarians are posting by clicking the hashtag, and you can keep an eye out here for featured posts from Nathan and members of the community all summer long! You can also view each of Nathan's updates by clicking on the links below. Enjoy!

Prayer and the Brain Book Group

Sundays thru June 11
9:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m., Bishop Dagwell Room. A new book group is forming at Trinity to read How God Changes Your Brain by Newberg and Waldman. It turns out that scientists are discovering what many of us already knew, that God is good for you. For those of us who chose this book, our interest in How God Changes Your Brain is a carryover from our Lenten read, A Reason for Hope, by Jane Goodall, from which we became interested in prayer. It feels like a good place to start as this book outlines the benefits of various types of prayerful contemplation. Everyone is welcome. Click HERE to register.
