Description

The Trinity Forum is a Christ-centred “academy without walls.” Its mission is to transform culture by transforming leaders. While TTF sponsors various kinds of programmes, its basic format is the study of a curriculum. The mini-courses are based on literature, from the classics to today, which serve to explore a particular subject relevant to human flourishing. Each reading is followed with discussion questions. The format is flexible, so that a curriculum may be covered over a period of time or in one or two sittings. Titles include Doing Well and Doing Good (on philanthropy), Entrepreneurs of Life (on human purpose, significance, and calling), When No One Sees (on character, integrity, and moral compass), and the like. After a thoughtful introduction, the remainder of the curricula simply presents the readings for our enrichment. The moderator can briefly introduce each reading, but then should lead as inductively as possible. He or she draws the answers out of the group, and avoids lecturing.
