Join us as we grow in faith and explore our world.
On Sundays after worship, members of our congregation gather to explore topics ranging from literature to social justice issues. Our congregation includes people with many vocations and interests who willingly share their expertise. We often hold a Summer Seminar to study one book in depth with discussions led by a variety of members. For example, we have studied Voltaire’s Candide and Turgenev’s Fathers and Sons in recent years.
Most recently, our Director of Music and Pianist/Organist Christian Hendricks led a short course on music in the twentieth century using the book, The Rest is Noise, by Alex Ross as the guide. The class was held via ZOOM and allowed the participants to learn more about the extraordinary variety of music since 1900.
Recent Adult Education programs include:
- Member Steven Crumb led a multi-week series on Ibram X. Kendi’s bestseller How To Be an Antiracist,
- Washington University Professor Nicole Svobodny concluded the study of Fathers and Sons with a lecture on 19th-century Russian literature,
- The Rev. Dr. Ruben Rosario Rodriguez, a theologian at St. Louis University, has frequently presented his most recent research,
- A staff member led a multi-week study of Marilynne Robinson’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel Gilead, and
- Washington University Assistant Professor of History Venus Bivar spoke on how economic growth came to be the hidden scaffolding of the twentieth century.
Trinity’s congregation includes people with many different vocations and intellectual interests: art, science, medicine, music, business, education, social work and the humanities. Our adult education sessions reflect those varied interests.
