Sunday Service at 10:30 A.M.
Jan 31 Kevin Alexandre and Mauranne Geffrard, "Diversity in Rutland": Two seniors in Mount Saint Joseph Academy recount their experiences in the international and diversity program.
Feb. 7 Marcia Foley, "The Culture of Conformity in the Internet Era and its Threat to Religious, Social and Political Freedom": With all the accessibility and immediate information afforded us by the Internet, does it really afford us more freedom or does it impinge on our rights? We will delve into the paradox of freedom compromised by increased free access to information.
Feb. 14 Kathy Harm, "Love Is the Doctrine": How can a non-creedal church have a doctrine? When we use doctrine in this way, do we mean other than a shared religious belief? Have we become so used to saying it that we no longer question its meaning?
Feb. 21 Rebecca Mattis, "Thou Shalt Not Judge: The 11th Commandment?": "Don't judge!" We hear it, and say it, all the time. Should we take it on principle, though? After all, using one's good judgement is a vital skill. What do we mean when we say "don't judge"? Rebecca investigates "the 11th commandment."
Feb. 28 Nancy Weis and Kathy Harm, "The Poetry of Aging": Many poets have written both eloquently and humorously of the passing of years. We'll have poems to read, and you may bring your own favorites.
Mar.6 David Darton, "JFK, the Quest for Truth and the Quest for Peace": John F. Kennedy became President during the hottest period of the Cold War. During the third and final year of his administration, in partnership with Nikita Khrushchev, Kennedy was on a quest for peace. This would put him on a collision course with the military industrial complex which Eisenhower had warned about in his farewell address. My talk will examine the Kennedy Presidency and assassination in the context of Kennedy's efforts not to win the Cold war but to end it, and how information released during the 1990s, with the breakup of the Soviet Union and by The Assassination Records Review Board, are influencing the direction of mainstream political scholarship and the quest for truth.
