Speaking Our Faith

Please join us on Wednesday evenings in Lent for a time of worship, fellowship, and reflection. We begin with Holy Eucharist at 5:30 pm in the Chancel, followed by a soup supper provided by different ministry groups in the church.

The highlight of our time together is a conversation in small groups. This year the Lenten series will focus on how we can better "Speak Our Faith" into the world in which we find ourselves. As Christians, we are "rooted in God's story," so how can we tell this story? Understand ourselves as part of God's story? And share it with others?

  • Why is it so hard for us to talk about this important, but sensitive, subject?
  • How is it each of us knows God, and who is the God that we know?
  • How are we to live because we live in relationship with God?

Some of us are afraid, some are uncomfortable, some are not even sure what it is we really believe. But our Baptismal Covenant says we are are to "proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ." Speaking Our Faith can help us figure out what words will work for each of us as we make that proclamation. This Lenten offering addresses directly Trinity's discernment over the summer about our desire to better be able to "unapologetically proclaim the Gospel."

The presenter (through weekly videos) for Speaking Our Faith is The Rev. Kit Carlson, Episcopal priest and author. She has spent years studying the fundamentals of faith discovery and communication in mainline, Christian communities. She developed Speaking Our Faith as part of her doctoral thesis and now offers it to the Church as a way to bring renewal and vitality to believers and faith communities.
