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 13 and 20 we discuss the words of two Old Testament prophets under the direction of Jim Wood, long-time Trinity parishioner. 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. Our May 13 Forum will focus on the Book of Amos.
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.
