January 30 & February 6: Dr. Bonnie Miller-McLemore
On January 9, Dr. Miller-McLemore gave us an introduction to her new book, Calling All Years Good: Christian Vocation Throughout Life's Seasons. What do you think of when you hear the words: calling and vocation? In this series she is exploring the complexities and undersides of living out our callings across life phases. On January 30 and February 6 she will help us delve into our childhood and later adulthood callings.

“Healing Medicine: Christ at Work through His Church in the Middle East”
Rev. Elmarie Parker serves as a Presbyterian Church (USA) Associate for Ecumenical Partnerships in the role of Regional Liaison to Church Partners in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon. She will lead a discussion regarding current conditions in the region where they work and live, along with how these conditions (including ISIS) are impacting PCUSA Partners and their continuing work of worship and ministry. Though there is much over which to be deeply concerned, there are also stories of hope to be heard and shared. Bring your questions and come ready to hear the witness received first hand from local church leaders on the ground in these areas of conflict and chaos.
