FOREWORD

This publication further celebrates the opening of Trinity College in 1929. Susan Thompson's contribution here is a detailed description of the succession of events throughout 1929-41 with accompanying observations.

In Journal 1998 we featured 'From Where I'm Standing', by Rev. Jack Penman, which covered selected facets of Trinity College history and focused particularly on his own experiences while training at the College during 1949-50. Now we include more thoughts from Jack, based on his own life journey.

Further support is given by Rev. Selwyn Dawson's treatise on the opportunities available to the presbyters of the Methodist Church in these changing times.

We have thus supplemented the concept of 'Informed Minds and Warm Hearts' with the mature reflections of two of the leading thinkers of the Methodist Church who received their initial training at Trinity College.
