Yet we are called to be communities without asterisks. Dr. Carter will share a powerful framework for reflecting upon and fostering belonging within youth and other congregational ministries. Together, we will explore the implications of this work on the ways we support youth with disabilities and on the ways we spur our own churches to be more inclusive and welcoming. false

      This eight-week course will serve as a sequel to my two-part course on the Beatles offered in Fall 2018 and Fall 2019, although taking these prior classes is not a prerequisite for this new course. This semester we will focus on the legacy of the Beatles—that is, the extraordinary influence this group has had and continues to have in shaping not only the landscape of recorded popular music, but our postmodern world itself.

Moral mandates, uncomfortable avoidance, or simple silence by faith communities on these issues leave teens ill equipped to bring their faith values to sexual and digital decision-making. This event will provide a nuanced approach that prioritizes honesty and discernment over fear and judgment. In addition to raising participants digital and sexual literacy, faith leaders/youth ministers will be resourced with curricular practices that draw on core values of the Christian tradition to help teens develop a just and flourishing sexuality in the digital age. true

      A conversation with Prof. Thomas Homer-Dixon, Executive Director of the Cascade Institute at Royal Roads University, Victoria Canada. Frightening pandemics, terrible inequality, racism and poverty, rising political authoritarianism, the inescapable climate crisis, and the resuscitated danger of nuclear war. We know the story. Some choose not to see it. Each of these crises seems so much larger than any one of us can understand or handle. Yet today, they all seem to be going critical simultaneously.

      For Canadian Professor Thomas Homer-Dixon, in addition to these crises, Canada’s big neighbor to the south is becoming increasingly ungovernable, and some experts believe it could descend into civil war. In an article in the Globe and Mail in December 2021 that went viral, he asks, “How should Canada prepare?” for the case that American democracy does indeed collapse.

      In "Commanding Hope", Professor Thomas Homer-Dixon shows why and how we got where we are today; and most importantly, he shows the powers we possess to renew our imperiled world. Join us to hear a Canadian perspective on the U.S. midterm elections, about practical tools we can use to understand our own and others’ worldviews better, to be strategically smart in our actions, together, to take the world to a healthier, more just place.
