    Faith Leaders' Summit on Children

    You're invited to attend the Faith Leaders' Summit on Children on Thursday, September 20th! Trinity will be hosting this important event for our community that will include faith leaders from around Alachua County. There is great potential for this to be a robust discussion full of voices from many religions and backgrounds!

    Many of the issues impacting children in our community today, including educational equity, early learning gaps, and poverty are ones that our faith communities can collectively have an impact in addressing. When we, as communities of faith, are aware of the issues facing our children, then we can best support them in this everchanging world.

    The Faith Leaders' Summit is designed to help inform you about the status of children in our area. The organizers have pulled together an outstanding panel of speakers that includes educational, mental health and children advocacy leaders. In addition to the data they will be presenting, you will also have the opportunity to hear about two local initiatives that will be considered by voters this November (the Children’s Trust and School Facilities) to help support children’s programming and school facilities on a countywide level. After you hear from the panel, there will be an opportunity for you to share your thoughts and ask your own questions.

    Anatomy of Peace

    What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, we systematically perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? Every day.

    This summer and fall we invite YOU to go deeper in your relationships with others by joining (or leading!) a book study on the Anatomy of Peace. Through a moving story of parents who are struggling with their own children and with problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional, and global conflicts, even when war is upon us.
