Trinidad Carnival: Layers of Meaning

Carnival in Trinidad, celebrated two days before the season of Lent, is a time of musical (often Calypso) celebration. However, Carnival and Calypso are about much more than music and revelry.

Lay Leader, Lisa Sporleder. Accompanist, Vera Alexander.

Living Peace: A Quaker Commitment

Peace is a value that permeates all Quaker teachings. Friends (Quakers) are challenged to be peace educators, to live the value of peace every day at work and at home. In order to reach these goals — and make “peace” more than an expedient slogan — Quakers must continually reinterpret and reevaluate themselves in a changing world. Charley Basham will talk about the Quaker Peace Testimony, an expression of that nonviolent faith and a tradition which goes back over 400 years. Speaker, Charley Basham. Lay Leader, Barbara Braley. Accompanist, Marsha Sousa.

Encounters With the Sacred: Our Stories and our Faith
