Paul and Terry shared their personal story and their vision for serving Christ in the senior living industry. In the afternoon Paul organized his annual soccer match.
Monday the Fellows travelled to DC to attend the Trinity Forum Gala, celebrating the Forum's 20th Anniversary. The gala included a discussion with Os Guinness and Ross Douthat on civility, followed by a reception for Trinity Forum Europe and the Academy. The evening culminated with a dinner at the Corcoran Gallery at which Al McDonald and Os Guinness spoke as the founders of Trinity Forum, and Cherie Harder, president of the Forum, shared a vision for the future. Tuesday morning, after a late night on the town, Fellows heard personally from Al McDonald, fomer CEO of McKinsey and Co. and founder of The Trinity Forum.

To wrap up the week the Fellows engaged in their first day of Silence and Solitude. Once a month during the program, Fellows take a day to be alone, to detach from all technology, and remain silent between our morning and evening devotions. They dedicate this time to prayer, reading, and reflection.
