Its poetic prologue sets the stage with allusions to God's act of creation and to the revelation of the Law to Moses. The evangelist claims that the Word of God, enfleshed in Jesus, is part of the first action and offers something that the Torah could not do. It defines that gift as "birth" from God available to all who believe. The story unfolds as a series of dramatic encounters that challenge readers to reflect on their own life giving encounters with Jesus. Richly suggestive images embellish the story which delights in irony, all of which aims to train readers to "see" the truth to which Jesus witnesses. The course will explore the Gospel's narrative strategy, probe the larger theological issues that it raises, and reflect on the process of the Gospel’s development and its engagement with the intellectual and cultural context of its first century audience. The six sessions will occur on September 21, 27, October 5, 12, 19 and 26. After attending all six sessions, participants will receive a certificate of completion.

      Voters across Canada will head to the polls to participate in the 44th Canadian Federal Election. From pandemic mitigation strategies and climate change policies to the rights of marginalized Canadians and the structure of Canadian federalism, the topics of debate have grown numerous. The dimensions of electoral competition have similarly proliferated. Six political parties (none of which are currently polling above one-third of overall electorate) now fiercely compete to elect MPs. A minority Parliament – in which the left-wing NDP and/or the nationalist Bloc Québécois will hold the balance of power between the Liberals and Conservatives – remains the most likely (though far from certain) outcome.

      This panel will unpack the election results, contextualize their place in Canadian political history, analyze key issues arising during the election, and discuss the possible ramifications of the election in Canada and beyond its borders. We hope you will join us, ask questions, and discuss this fascinating and fast-moving election!

The organizer of this expedition, Dave Belin ’92, had a very different Mount Yale experience the week before. He was one of four Colorado Yalies who volunteered for the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative’s multi-day, trail-maintenance project, along with Dave, Charlie Peck ’69, Victor Badilla ’81, and Joe Stepanek ’65. They helped the CFI with rock work below the summit ridge, one of the organization’s most difficult endeavors at high altitude on heavy reconstruction. Dave will tell of his life at the top on Monday, September 27th, at 6:00 pm. Charlie Peck promises to be there too. With photographs, the zoom event should be both entertaining and informational. Word comes from the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative that they hope to have a similar multi-day project in 2020: to help with timber structures below treeline and also help with rock work up high. You just may be inspired to participate next year. The virtual event will be advertised and open to all Yalies beyond Colorado. So invite a friend/possible restoration buddy. Email Stephanie Grilli to RSVP and receive the Zoom address near the date: steph@artscribe.net false
