All Trinity Reads


This fall, the All Trinity Reads program will once again be offered.  Over the course of the coming months, there will be eleven different reading groups that will convene on different days, at different times, and in different places; each group will meet for a total of no more than five or six weeks. Everyone is invited to take part in one or another of these groups, but space in each group is limited so contact the coordinator(s) of the group you’d like to join as soon as possible (see below for schedules and contact information).

The book we will read this fall is What is Anglicanism? (Morehouse Publishing, 1982) by The Very Reverend Dr. Urban Holmes III (1930-1981).  Holmes was a native of Chapel Hill, NC, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1954.  He is best remembered for his service as Dean of the School of Theology at the University of the South, and also served as Chaplain at both Catawba College and Louisiana State University and as Professor of Pastoral Theology at Nashotah House Theological Seminary.

Holmes’s book is an excellent introduction for those interested in exploring the parameters of Anglicanism, both those who are new to Anglicanism and those who have been Anglicans for some time but who would like to reacquaint themselves with their tradition.  In recent years several circumstances have arisen that invite all Anglicans to reflect on the nature of Anglican faith and practice, and Holmes’s book provides an excellent resource for doing so.  Copies of Holmes’s book can be ordered via Amazon by clicking here.
