January 3: Improvising a Life
with guest speaker J. Barrett Lee
Humans have frequently sought to find meaning in life by repeating platitudes like “Everything happens for a reason!” or “God has a plan!” But what if that isn’t true? And what if meaninglessness isn’t the only alternative? What if the meaning of life isn’t “found” but “made”? Join J. Barrett Lee for a look at the improvisational process of evolution. You are cordially invited to explore the possibilities for making a meaningful life in the midst of so much chaos and beauty.
January 10: Wisdom
with Rev. Harold Beu
This will be the last of Harold’s trilogy of sermons centering on Reinhold Niebuhr’s Serenity Prayer. Wisdom is hard to come, it seems to me, and there is so little of it in our world, especially among our ruling elite. Harold will humbly offer thoughts on the matter knowing deep down that his access to wisdom is limited.
December 17: Restoring the Soul of America
with guest speaker, Donna Odom
The Polish-born American Rabbi Abraham Heschel wrote, “Racism is man’s gravest threat to man.” Racism is and always has been the gravest threat to America. What are its roots and what can we do to bring about racial healing?
January 24: Renewing Our Commitment to Justice
with guest speaker, Wendy Fields
In 1946, eighty-seven culturally diverse residents established the Metropolitan Kalamazoo Branch of the NAACP to mirror the national mission to advocate for equality, civil rights, voter mobilization, and monitor equal opportunities for all people in the public and private sector for residents in the greater Kalamazoo area. We’ll learn about the history and impact of this organization and how we can support its vision for racial justice.
January 31: A Message in Music
