Adult Forum Hour
When/Where: Sunday mornings from 9:00AM– 10:15AM in the Guild Hall.
The Adult Education Forum has taken a look at a wide variety of subjects over the past years, tackling everything from religious issues to ethics and morality in our society today. A one-month portion of each year is dedicated to foreign affairs. In the past, we have tackled the Palestinian/Jewish question, the Arab Spring parts 1 and 2 and several other foreign policy issues.
Other subjects have been the Affordable Care Act, immigration and many issues from our city’s governance, to learning about the many newer cultural programs and volunteer efforts in our inner cities. We have also managed to take a hard look at environmental issues such as water rights and fracking.
Adult Forum Committee members include: John Bentley, Bill Cartwright, Kirt and Joanna Hobler, Craig Hopewell, Don Harrison, Jonathan and Nancy Lippincott, Gerri Strauss, and Rev. Dr. Stephen Caine.
We would welcome new members with fresh ideas and enthusiasm!
If you are interested in joining the Adult Forum Committee, please contact Gerri Strauss.
