Educational Forums

“Christians are made, not born.”

Tertullian, Early Church Theologian, 200 A.D.

 

We may become Christians at Baptism, but the “christening” of our lives is a lifelong task. Adult Christian Formation at Trinity Church Boston seeks to “christen” us, to form us more deeply in mind and spirit into the image of Christ, not only for our own good, but for the good of God's world.

During the program year (Sept. - June), Trinity Church Boston hosts educational forums on most Sunday mornings between the 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. worship services. The goal of the Forums is to foster reflection and discussion at the intersection of faith and life as we know it in the 21st century. They offer a platform for exploring issues and providing tools to deepen one's ability to live faithfully at home and at work. 

The 2017-2018 Forum Series is "12 Lives: Faith, Action, Witness."  Guest speakers share stories of the lives men and women from different eras and varied faiths. How did they live into their faith in their own time, culture, and community?  What can we learn from them?

The 2015-2016 Forum series was called “A Year of the Bible II —The New Testament (Meeting Jesus for the First Time).” It followed on the heels of the previous series “A Year of the Bible I —The Old Testament.” Both series, based on a lecture format, employed art masterpieces, literature, and music to highlight particular themes in the Bible and understandings of Jesus as the multi-faceted Christ.
