Trinity Forum: Hebrew Scripture Series II: The Book of Hosea
Trinity Episcopal Church in Concord invites you to its Sunday morning Adult Forum, Trinity's adult education program, which meets weekly at 9 AM to hear speakers connect us to these topics: word, worship, wonder, world, and witness, five important aspects of our Christian life.
On May 20 we continue to study the words of Old Testament prophet Hosea under the direction of Jim Wood. Amos and Hosea are the two earliest Jewish prophets and two of the most relevant today. Both warned that God knew how the weak were treated by the powerful, how the poor were treated by the rich; and they and their society would be judged. These are also some of the oldest of Old Testament scripture, but some of the most "advanced" in their theology.
Jim Wood is a member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Concord and past Junior Warden. A graduate of Yale University, he holds graduate degrees from the State University of New York at Buffalo in American and English History. After a career in software development and management, he became the Parish Administrator of the Church of the Advent in Boston in 1997. He has been a serious, and largely self-taught, student of the Bible for over twenty years.
Trinity's invited Forum speakers come from many walks of life and have addressed all manner of topics. Among our recent topics are pilgrimage, faith lost and found, histories and Biblical persons, death, dying and grieving, parenting, stewardship, education, and much more.
Childcare begins in Trinity's nursery at 9 AM; Trinity's buildings are fully accessible.
More About Trinity Episcopal Church
Trinity Episcopal Church, led by Rev. Tony Buquor, was founded in 1884. Sunday services are at 8am in the chapel (no music) and 10am in the main church (full choir and hymns).
Church school for children ages 4 to 14 is conducted at 10am, and a nursery is available for infants and very young children. A coffee hour follows both services.
Once during the year, the church offers a class for people interested in learning more about the Anglican Church and the background and meaning of its worship. The class lasts four weeks and begins after the 10am service.
Trinity offers a wide variety of other activities, including a book group, bike club and outreach programs. A schedule of events is available on its website.
