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!
Summer Book Group-The Underground Railroad
Wednesdays thru August 30, 7:00p.m., Bishop Scott Room. Facilitated by Elliott Trommald.
Underground Railroad is a book for our times-and the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Slavery and race have profoundly shaped the story of America and continue to challenge our understanding of who we are. Closon Whitehead’s magical work is a powerful meditation on the history we share, seamlessly weaving that American story from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of today. Our summer read of Underground Railroad is an opportunity for us to explore, discuss, and feel how our past is always present and that we neglect it at our peril. Click HERE to register.
Summer Book Group-Cover Her Face
Wednesdays thru August 30, 7:00p.m., Stearns Library. Facilitated by Sarah Pierce.
Cover Her Face is the debut 1962 crime novel of P.D. James. It details the investigations by her poetry-writing detective Adam Dalgliesh into the death of a young, ambitious maid, surrounded by a family which has reasons to want her gone - or dead. Please plan to have the first 3 chapters read before the first meeting on June 28. Click HERE to register.

Emily is committed to building communities of faith that dismantle fear and hate, affirm LGBTQ people, and confront racial injustice.
