Introduction

Everyone wants to have conversations about things that matter. More than that, we believe one of the gifts communities of faith have to offer is a place to talk about the issues, concerns and passions which are on our hearts. As part of Trinity's Thrive initiative, we are conducting Conversations that Matters programs thoughout the year. These programs are designed to support Trinity congregation members as well as our broader DuPage community.

These Programs Will

  • be lively and informative discussions;
  • be led by experienced, highly recommended facilitators; and
  • provide a compassionate, thoughtful source of learning for our community.

If you have questions about this program or would like to suggest a topic, please email Trinity at office@trinitywheaton.org.

Conversations That Matter

Avoiding Data Breaches, Scams and ID Theft - March 2

It’s not just seniors at risk but anyone from age 18 to 86 and beyond. Anytime a stranger asks you for personal information you should be on high alert. This is a sure sign of potential ID theft, scam, or data breach. It’s shrewd, not rude, to hang up on strangers asking for money or personal information. Since 2005, there have been 4,000 data breaches affecting over 857 million records. For the most part, businesses don’t alert consumers until the public is alerted to data breaches. Berenice Martinez, Community Outreach Liaison from the Illinois Attorney General’s Office will lead the discussion and provide advice to protect yourself. Come join us at the next Conversations That Matter speaker event.

Doors open 6:45 pm. Presentation starts at 7:15. Wrap-up before 8:30 pm. Trinity Episcopal Church in Wheaton.

How to be Happy Though Human - March 16

We are all human for better or worse. Some people celebrate this while others decry it. Having a notion of inferiority or inadequacy is quite normal. This workshop explores how to be happy while being perfectly imperfect. Our personality provides the key for whether we will be happy or not with our human-ness. As part of the discussion, we’ll explore personality and character. Michael Maniacci, a practicing Psychiatrist, will lead the discussion. Michael spoke at last September’s Conversations That Matter event. Join us at this Conversations That Matter speaker event.

Doors open 6:30 pm. Presentation starts at 7 pm. Wrap-up about 8:20 pm. Trinity Episcopal Church in Wheaton.
