Postcards from Lincoln: A History Speakers Series


Kerygma: God Calls Leaders
Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.
September 8 – November 10

Dr. Dave Moore continues his series of classes on the great themes of the Bible by looking at the inspired leaders who make a difference in the unfolding biblical drama. Understand how God worked through the lives of the Patriarchs, Prophets, Jesus, and the Apostles, and come to see how God continues to work by lighting the path for leaders today.

Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.
September 7 – October 12

Transitions, by choice or by chance, are a part of our lives at every stage. From college to first job, from one job to another, from no children to becoming a parent, from busy family life to empty-nester, from economic comfort to scarcity, from where you’ve always lived to someplace very different, from 70 hours a week to retirement, and the list goes on. In this class, we’ll think together about how to make transitions, not necessarily with ease, but with meaning… or as Yo-Yo Ma describes it, how to make music in the space between. All are welcome – because all of us are, or have been, or will be again, in transition. Led by Dr. Marilyn Moore.

Soul Art: Mandalas
October 19 & 26 at 6:00 p.m.

Our world invites left-brain analytic thinking to predominate our day. Soul art invites our right-brain creative expression to bring balance to life. Join Rev. Jane this October for a Mandala creating workshop. Learning how to draw your own mandala is a deeply absorbing, meditative practice. Not only does it release your inner artist, but creating your own mandala meaning can produce deeper insights about life itself. Designing your own mandala is a beautiful way of entering a peaceful state. Benefits include an increased sense of wellbeing, calmness, clarity, emotional stability, wholeness, creativity, and understanding. Mandalas are also said to carry their own special kind of vibrational energy. Therefore, they can be used for the enhancement of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. You do not need to consider yourself ‘an artist’ or have any previous art experiences. Everyone can create and learn this process of inner exploration.
