Dialogue Events

Dialogue events occur periodically at Holy Trinity as another component of the congregation’s desire to engage what is going on in the world from a Christian perspective.  Often held over a meal, such dialogues occur in response to the presentation of a social commentator, cultural observer, biblical scholar, or theologian in which important concerns affecting the community of faith can be identified and explored together.

Upcoming dialogue event:

Thursday, January 26: Dialogue Breakfast Exploring Legislative Issues in 2017

We fell called to speak out about social injustice. For many years, we have had a group attend Joint Religious Legislative Coalition’s “Day on the Hill.” This year the Peace with Justice Committee would like to offer an opportunity to learn about the chosen issues in advance so that we can be better prepared, encourage more people to attend Day on the Hill, and learn more about the impact we can make as individuals if we can’t attend an all-day event. Come January 26 from 8:00-9;45 a.m. for a preview of the issues that JRLC has chosen for 2017, presented by Ann Krisnik, Executive Director. Breakfast will be served!
