Join our clergy, staff and lay leaders as they share what we have learned from our All Parish Survey and from our Table Talk to guide us forward in shaping our congregation’s future.
Every relationship has its highs and lows as well as moments where we find ourselves stuck. How do we turn things around and transform our relationship into the relationship that we know that it has the potential to be? Join Steve Treat, former CEO of the Council for Relations and one of the most sought after counselors in America to explore this topic.
We are living in a time of cultural climate change. Half of the world is getting more religious and half is turning away completely. Why is this happening and what can we do about it? Join one of our most beloved speakers, Rabbi Greg Marx, Senior Rabbi of Congregation Beth Or, as we explore this topic.
There is a pervasive if misguided myth that science and religion are locked in inescapable conflict. The Rev. Joseph Wolyniak, the Episcopal chaplain at Princeton University and husband of our Associate Rector, Liz Costello, will help us examine how science emerged within a religious worldview historically and how both the sciences and religious traditions play a vital role in our understanding of God’s creation—and our call to transformation within it.
Where is God? Can we actually expect God to show up? Is God just? Is God a liar? By asking questions like this, the book of Psalms can be brutally honest about the challenges of maintaining faith in God. Old Testament Professor and prolific author Pete Enns will help us see how such honesty is an expression of faith rather than evidence of faithlessness.
Phil Duffy, a teacher of lifelong learning courses for Widener and Immaculata Universities and a routine contributor to WFYL’s We the People – the Constitution Matters, will explore the meaning of two historical anecdotes that have contributed to the healing between previously warring nations. It focuses on the actions of individuals who rose above normal human nature to set an example of reconciliation as an alternative to revenge and reparation.
Join Paul Meyer, the F. Otto Haas Executive Director of the Morris Arboretum, and Matt Rader, President of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, as they address how we can care for our local environment and pass along a better planet Earth to our children through open space preservation, land stewardship, tree planting and connecting youth to nature.
