THIRD SUNDAY FRED TALKS:  Similar to the well-known TED Talks, Trinity’s FRED Talks offer a wide variety of topics that will help open our eyes and hearts to God, God’s creation, and God’s children.  Faith, Religion, Education, and Discussion, FRED Talks may range from Christian theological and Biblical discussions to other religions to the needs in our community and our world.  But the talks’ focus and discussions always help us with our faithful response to issues and people as followers of Christ.  The talks take place in Trinity’s Gearing Hall on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15am with refreshments and fellowship time beginning at 9:00am.

9/16    Susan McDougal:  People Tell Stories

Susan-4.10.17.png

Some say that God created us because God loves stories, and where there are people, there are stories.  Out of all the stories that an individual can tell, there are certain ones that are repeated over and over again representing the storyteller’s core narratives.  These core narratives go to the very heart of who the individual is and where they have come from and with whom.  It is in both the telling and the hearing of these stories that we most make meaning in our lives.  Susan McDougal is a Diplomate in Clinical Pastoral Supervision and the Associate Director of the UAMS Department of Pastoral Care & Clinical Pastoral Training Programs. Susan is the Supervisor for the Daytime Extended Program and the Summer Intensive Program of Clinical Pastoral Education at UAMS. Recipient of the Compassionate Care Award, Rockefeller Cancer Center 2013-2014

TNT YOUTH GROUP’S NEW STUDY:  Youth in grades 6-12, join the Trinity Youth Group Sunday nights from 5:30-7:30 in the Fellowship Hall as we explore Harry Potter’s world of magic and mystery created by J. K. Rowling alongside the stories and grand themes of the Bible.  We will look into how Harry Potter not only echoes many of the stories in the Bible, but also how it reinforces many of the central messages of Christianity.  Direct questions to Trinity’s Youth Director, Jared Brown, at 870-299-0989.

WOMEN’S WEDNESDAY EVENING STUDY:  All women are invited to participate in a seven-week Women’s Evening Study that runs through October 17.  We’re studying Holly W. Whitcomb’s Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting.  The group, led by Julie Price, meets in Room 6 from 5:45 until 6:45pm each Wednesday for discussion, sharing and prayer time.  Everyone is welcome, whether church member or visitor.  Books are available on Amazon or let Julie Price know and she will order you one for $9.00.
