Forum Series: Viewing Catastrophe

devastation2croppedViewing Catastrophe
Dates: June 22, 29, July 13, 20, 27
Time: 10:15 a.m.
Room: East Gallery

This summer series of five forums looks at catastrophe from differing perspectives—  from Judaism to Christianity, with scientific response, atheism, and psychology entering the discussion in between.  One day, TV and newspapers detail a missing Malaysian airliner, another day they report on 9/11, devastating fires in Arizona, tornados in Arkansas.  We cannot help but stand in awe of the dreadful magnitude of these purposeful and natural events.


June 22:  What’s God Got to Do with It?  Rabbi Helen Cohn
June 29:  A Small Scientific Contribution, Dr. Ed Alexander
July 13:  Atheists’ Response to Natural Catastrophe, Dr. Julia Annas
July 20:  Psychological Responses, Dr. Sharon Nielsen
July 27:  One Priest’s Perspective, The Rev. Vicki Hesse

Please join moderator Harry Caldwell, PhD, for these insightful and provocative presentations. Spiritual Formation.
