December 2015 Newsletter

“The way I define spirituality is a deeply held belief that we are inextricably connected to one another by something bigger than us, and something that is grounded in love. Some people call that God, and some people call that fishing.”     Brene Brown -- Time Sep 21, 2015

December 6 – IN THE NEWS AND ON YOUR MIND   Let’s talk about it with Carol Simpson.  Here is another chance to express your concerns or ideas about whatever it is.  Unfortunately, there is more to think about since Nov. 1st when we last had this opportunity.  Carol will moderate.


December 13 – WORLD AIDS DAY is celebrated on December 1st.  Come and learn about the progress made in the battle to end HIV and AIDS.  The tape from a show on HBO will introduce you to some of the many caring people who have been involved.  AIDS has been a death sentence for thousands.  But, now there is good news.  You may be surprised by some of the people involved.  Penny Hendricks will moderate.


December 20 – TRAIL OF TEARS - CHEROKEE LEGACY.     This is an award winning documentary which tells the story of the effort of British and American governments who disregarded Native Americans as the owners of the territory and used force to take their lands and destroy their people.  Meron Castain brings this program.


December 27 IF YOU WERE GRANTED THREE WISHES, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THEM……?       Penny Hendricks is the moderator.
