Mondays: January 28; February 4,11, 18 and 25; March 4
7:30-9:00pm Patton Auditorium
"Great Decisions" is a video and discussion based educational series offered by the Foreign Policy Association. For six weeks, we will explore a variety of current topics of deep importance both nationally and internationally, with commentary from notable political, academic and media figures.
“Docs and Dialogue”
Tuesday, January 22
7:00pm in Patton Auditorium
The next “Docs and Dialog”, FCC’s new series of documentary film viewing and follow up discussion, will take place on Tuesday, January 22 at 7pm in Patton Auditorium. On that night, we will see the Peabody and Critic’s Choice award-winning, as well as Academy Award nominated documentary, “13th”.
The title of director Ava DuVernay’s film refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which DuVernay uses as the basis for an exploration of the current state of mass incarceration in America, the explosion of our nation’s prison system in recent times, and the particular effects of those two on African Americans.
“13th” is particularly relevant in this month when we remember the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and in this time when a significant number of law enforcement officials and elected leaders from every part of the political spectrum are calling for reforms in our prison and criminal justice systems.
“Monthly Prayer and Meditation”
Tuesday, January 15
7:30pm-8:30pm in Sanctuary
Member, friends and guests are invited to join together in a time of prayer and meditative practice on the second Tuesday (usually) of each month. These sessions will include time for participants to offer and discuss their own prayer concerns and intentions.
