This WeekTrinity Adult Formation Event
"Everywhere you turn there's mystery and wonder"

— James Tate

TateAt the liturgy last Sunday in Schiller Park, Trinity entered the unusual, symbolic world of contemporary American poet James Tate and shared a time of reflection on one of a series of short poems collected in a single piece, "It Happens Like This."  People responded with great energy, so we want to go a little deeper.
The Rector will continue looking at this astounding poem this Sunday, August 21, at a Chapel Chat following the 9:30am service - and you are invited to join him in this exploration!  (No prior exposure to Tate's poetry is assumed.  Just come with an open spirit and joyful imagination.)
And on Sunday, August 28 come to one more Summer Chapel Chat looking further into Creativity & the Spirit.
