January 13 – END OF THE SEASON, END OF THE YEAR, END OF THE EARTH?  From our guest speaker, Rev. Jim Conn:  I have long thought that the universe we can now “see”, through the gift of technology, mirrors the microcosm that we can now “see” through other technological tools.  What I fear is the loss of connection between those two spheres in the heart of the one who sees them.  Bob Johnson will moderate. 

January 20 –- CAMPAIGNS INC., How politics became big business.  Campaigns Inc., founded in 1933, marks the shift of political power from party bosses to political consulting firms; power gained not by votes but by money.  It revolutionized how we do politics and impacts issues of today.  Moderator:  Linda Klein
