December 8: “American Nightmare, Part 3” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

December 8 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Politicians and others are fond of advocating for everyone to share “the American dream.” We may differ about what that is, exactly, or what it should be, but we seldom question whether a dream is the best format for the ideals toward which we might aspire.

December 22: “The Earth Forever Turning” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons
