Theology Tuesdays – This Summer
- Heard about the Trinity in Church but not sure what it means?
- Interested in the Bible but have no idea how to even approach it?
- Like the music you hear each Sunday but want to know more about where it comes from?
A series this summer offers the chance to delve deeper into several topics related to the Church you may be curious about. Join others on Tuesdays at 7:00pm in the Guild Room to glean insights from three informative and enriching books — and from each other. All are welcome — whatever your level of knowledge and whatever you believe (or don’t). Reading the book is helpful, but not required. Refreshments will be served. For more information, Email the Reverend Peter Thompson, Assistant Rector. Books are available in advance from the Parish Office (203 947-2806) or your favorite book source.
With the help of the popular contemplative write Richard Rohr, we’ll tackle one of Christianity’s toughest topics — the Trinity — and ask how such an abstract dogma with origins deep in the past can be relevant to our lives today.

July 25: Part 4 (The Question That Always Comes Up)
St. Paul’s, like many Episcopal churces, would not be what i is if it were not for the English church music tradition. These sessions outline the history of that tradition, allow participants to listen to the best examples of music from it, and chat with Director of Music, Jake Street, about how that tradition is still alive at St. Paul’s.
