Newsletter: Week of October 24, 2016

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

There are a famous "4 stages to grief" when something traumatic happens. But how do we grieve for the constant, everyday losses? How do we grieve for the day misspent; the rude comment we let slip through our lips; the things we weren't brave enough to do; the things we, unfairly, were never given the chance to do? How do we grieve for the lives that we won't get to live?

This Sunday, join us for a conversation with Vanessa Zoltan,  Assistant Humanist Chaplain at Harvard and at the Humanist Hub. Vanessa graduated with her BA in English Literature and Writing from Washington University in St. Louis, her MS in Nonprofit Management from the University of Pennsylvania and her MDiv from Harvard Divinity School in 2015. She is working on a book about treating Jane Eyre as a sacred text and is the co-host of the podcast "Harry Potter and the Sacred Text."

1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street. Read more here. We also invite you to a music program before & a community Town Hall following.
