Wednesdays @ Trinity

Wednesday Evenings at Trinity begin with Evensong at 6 p. m., followed by supper ($5 donation) and a program at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday evening classes at Trinity include:

Facilitated Labyrinth Walk
Feb. 3, Mar. 30, and May, 18, 2016

Sue Mueller and Karen Peterson lead this labyrinth walk at Trinity. Both trained facilitators and members of St. Barnabas in Bay Village, Sue and Karen will offer instruction and then allow guests to walk and experience the labyrinth. Both the Trinity labyrinth (an eleven-circuit one based on the labyrinth in Chartes Cathedral in France) and a classical labyrinth will be available.

Tai Chi
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.

Growing A Rule of Life
Feb 17-Mar. 16, 2016

Feb. 17 — Exploring Rule of Life and Rhythm of Nature
Feb. 24  — Exploring Your Relationship to God
Mar. 02 — Exploring Your Relationship with Self
Mar. 09 — Exploring Your Relationship with Others
Mar. 16  — Exploring Your Relationship with Creation

2016_LentIn this series, we will focus on God as the Chief Gardener of our soul, and we will seek out ways to grow into the fullness God desires for us. Just as stakes and lattices support the growth of young plants, so too can spiritual disciplines support the flourishing of our whole being. This series uses a tool from monastic spirituality called a ‘Rule of Life’ to help us cultivate our relationships with God, Self, Others, and Creation. This is an exciting opportunity to dig deep and dream big about ways to live into a more abundant life with Christ.

This series is designed for use by both individuals and small groups. In small groups, facilitators will guide the growing process as participants discuss and learn together. For individuals, daily videos and reflections will lead them through a similar process. Ultimately each participant will create a unique Rule of Life to guide and sustain their Christian life beyond the class.

The series is organized into six phases. Each phase will help us develop some aspect of our own ‘Rule of Life.’ In these phases, we will look deeply at our relationships with God, with Self, with Others, and with Creation.
