Shared Housing
Feb. 4, 11, & 25 and May 6 & 13

In a world with finite resources, sharing will have to become more the norm rather than the exception. This is also the case when it comes to housing.

Common Read – Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande
May 20
In Being Mortal, bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending.

Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Read more.

Tai Chi
February-May
Led by George Anderson
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that was originally developed for self-defense (it is considered to be a martial art form). Today tai chi has evolved into a graceful and elegant form of exercise where each posture flows gently into the next without pause which ensures that your body remains in constant motion. Consequently, tai chi is sometimes described as meditation in motion. Because of its gentle and flowing style, tai chi is considered to be a self-paced system of gentle stretching and low impact exercise that naturally promotes stress reduction. Tai chi is generally considered safe and beneficial for all ages and fitness levels.

Trinity also offers opportunities for faith formation and fellowship on Sundays. In addition, our Adult Journey programs—Confirmation, Culture of Call and Education Ministry—offer a deeper understanding of the life of faith.
