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 sharing their experiences on one of six themes — word, worship, wonder, world, witness, work—each being an important aspect connecting faith with everyday life. Trinity's complete Forum schedule is available at http://trinityconcord.org/forum.shtml.
On Sunday, December 9, our Forum presentation focuses on Word as Acton resident Professor Raoul Smith teaches us how to “read” the icons in Trinity's chapel and open our eyes to the stories they tell.
Prof. Smith received his baccalaureate in Russian and his doctorate in Linguistics at Brown University. He held a joint appointment as a professor at Northwestern University in Linguistics and in Slavic Languages and Literatures where he taught, among other courses, the History of the Russian Language and Old Church Slavonic. He is currently Research Fellow at the Museum of Russian Icons and is editor of its online, peer-reviewed Journal of Icon Studies.
Trinity's invited Forum speakers come from many walks of life and have addressed all manner of topics -- serious, mysterious, personal and world-focussed. 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. For further information on this or other programs at Trinity, please call our Parish Office, 978/369-3715, or visit us online at http://www.trinityconcord.org.
