March 31 - ING Speakers Bureau Event
Our Muslim friends at ING (Islamic Networks Group), whom we met last year as part of our Interfaith Harmony focus, are piloting a new program that seeks to explore bigotry in our society. They were seeking a friendly and supportive audience on which to try out their program, and they thought of Trinity. An honor for us, and a fruit of our interfaith efforts. They will be here for a panel discussion and conversation starting at 11:30 am on Sunday, March 31st in Trinity Hall -- there won't be lunch, but there will be some refreshments to sustain us! I hope you can join us as we help our Muslim friends.

April 12 - OWLS Monthly Program & Lunch
Please join us for lunch to hear parishioner Dick Babb talk about Jane Lathrop Stanford, how she saved the university and her mysterious death. The first part of his talk will describe the early and then later years of the Stanford marriage, and how they accumulated their great wealth. After the heartbreaking death of Leland Junior, Dick will discuss how and why they founded Leland Stanford Junior University. We will learn how Jane saved the beginning university from bankruptcy and closure. The end of the presentation will focus on her mysterious death in Honolulu which has still not been solved to this day. You will not want to miss this interesting talk about history in our own backyard!
