May 9

BREATH, how breath awareness can help us get ready to connect to the Holy Spirit. A little bit about breathing and some practice. Led by Suzanne Scholten, Director of Christian Education at FPCI and yoga teacher for 16 years. 

May 16 

We will have a 20-min zoom talk + discussion with Guthrie Graves-Fitzsimmons, author of Just Faith:Reclaiming Progressive Christianity.

 

May 23 

A presentation on the Rohingya, probably from either the leading international pro-Rohingya activist and scholar  Maung Zarni or a Rohingya leader from the Canadian Rohingya community. We are still awaiting confirmation on which speaker will lead us.

 

May 30 

We will discuss an essay by Ross Douthat that appeared in the NY. Times on April 10, “Can the Meritocracy Find God?”

All of us will want a crack at Douthat and the questions he raises although he uses pretty cryptic phrasing at times.

Two of our own members will be leading this discussion, Maury Tigner and Don Bartel should have a chance to take the first shots,though, given their leadership of the Future Faith series.

Coming Soon, please come back later.
