Encountering the Easter Story through Mark’s Gospel and Stephen King’s early writing, our Tuesday night learning is via Zoom only and features discussion-based small groups.


On Tuesday, 4/12 at 7 pm, please join us as we dig in to part 5b of our Lenten Forum Series: A Resurrection Beyond.


If 'Pet Sematary' allegorizes grief, then 'Thinner' allegorizes revenge. Billy Halleck of 'Thinner' struggles beneath a suffocating weight of shame, guilt, and anger, and his strategies to find internal and external reconciliations only worsen his situation. Reading from 'Pet Sematary' and Halleck’s exchanges with Taduz Lemke, we will discuss guilt, loss, and grief in our small groups, asking: Is our mortality a gift or a curse? How do we understand why “bad things happen to good people”? What is the Christian hope? Can hope heal our grief and guilt? If so, how?


Follows a 6 pm rebroadcast of Sunday’s lecture at trinitychurchboston.org/live-worship
