January 10: Politics and Spirituality
The 2016 presidential campaign is heating up. How might, or should, we use spirituality to guide our voting decisions and to weigh public policy? How can we best deal with a political process that seems, to many, to be dysfunctional or broken? Come hear Professor Doron M. Kalir of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law discuss politics and spirituality.

January 17: Listen for a Change
The Adult Forum continues its month-long theme of Spirituality in the Public Square with video excerpts previewing the 2016 Trinity Institute webcast to be aired at Trinity Cathedral from January 21-23.  Associate Rector Richard Israel will show and lead discussion of 3-5 short video offerings from Conference speakers who seek to engage the church in sacred conversations for racial justice. (Learn how to register to attend the free webcast of the conference at Trinity Cathedral, our local partner site here.)
