“WELLSPRING” happens every Wednesday evening from September to May. Its mission is to bring people of all ages and interests together in small groups to learn about a variety of topics and enjoy each other’s company. An (optional) affordable catered dinner is offered at 6 p.m., and participants head off to their classrooms at 7 p.m.
This year, our program offerings center on six themes: Justice; Community-Building; Communications; Personal Enrichment; Faith/Spirituality; and Celebration/Fun. Free childcare is available for younger children (starting at 6:45 p.m. in the Susan B. Anthony room in lower Peace Hall.) Wellspring is a great way to get to know more people in a small-group atmosphere. Please join us!
Wellspring Programs for Wednesday, February 14, 2018
Theology Book Club, led by Chris Wise, will discuss a novel this month — Albert Camus’ The Stranger, first published in 1946. Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed “the nakedness of man faced with the absurd.” When it was first published, the book seemed a “universal” and “timeless” tale with philosophical overtones. Most readers today, however, have become too conscious of the politics of racism. Similarly, feminism has made us notice that the root of the plot’s crime is not sunstroke, but violence toward a woman. Contact Chris Wise (j[email protected]) for more information or to be added to the club email list. (Emerson)
