The College community observed Ash Wednesday during the weekly communal worship with the message “Formation Matters for Community,” presented by Dr. Aron Reppmann ’92, associate professor of philosophy.
Reppmann offered a reflection on the dynamics of the formation that occurs through practices observed during the season of Lent, often a time for taking on new spiritual disciplines. He suggested ways the Trinity community can take up communal practices based on its common identity.
“Paying attention to how we are formed, being aware of and intentional about formation is a hallmark of our life together, a distinguishing factor, a way of life that makes our community distinctive,” said Reppmann.
To help students, faculty, and staff continue to engage the practices begun in the Wednesday chapel series, Reppmann will offer weekly posts on his blog Formation Matters.
