May 26: “Against My Religion” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

May 26 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

The recent passage by the Missouri legislature of draconian limitations to women’s reproductive health options demands a response from people of faith. The questions of when and how life begins, and when and how it ends, as well as our responsibilities as stewards of those processes, are profoundly religious questions. But that does not mean that there is only one perspective that arises out of the religious considerations, and it is time for those who support the autonomy and moral…

June 16 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Communities unite around stories, and stories teach us who we are. The strongest communities are those with the most robust collections of histories and legends, offering a complex, ambiguous, multi-faceted identity that fosters diversity as well as connection.

July 14 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
