Meditations

These ‘interesting times’ of great disruption and uncertainty provide no shortage of challenge and angst, and the church is by no means immune. However, even with these ongoing troubles we have a great hope that we can turn and cling to. Drawing upon this hope the faculty of Trinity College Theological School is assembling a series of meditations and reflections, which will be added to each week beginning on 23 March 2020. We pray that these will draw you closer into the hope which we have received.
