Fridays, October 16, 23, 30, November 6 | 7 pm, via Zoom
Register here | All are welcome! Series cost starts at $0
2020 has been a year like none other in our memories. The profound and widespread grief of this year has been overwhelming.
This series invites speakers familiar and new to our UCUCC/Lecture Series audience to share what they are currently working on and to reflect on a deep grief and a deep joy each has experienced in 2020.
Where can we find hope in a year such as this? The lamentation of John Denver’s “All This Joy, All This Sorrow,” offers an inspiration, soundtrack, and poetry for the series.
We are excited to announce our series speakers:
October 16: Michael Ramos, ED, Church Council of Greater Seattle, with Pastor Todd Smiedendorf
October 23: John J. Thatamanil, Assistant Professor of Theology and World Religions, Union Theological Seminary, with Pastor Catherine Foote
October 30: Rev. Yolanda Norton, Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible / H. Eugene Farlough Professor of Black Church Studies, Graduate Theological Union, and creator/curator of the Beyonce Mass which The Lecture Series is scheduled to host in May 2021 (COVID allowing), with Pastor Amy Roon
November 6: 2020 Election: Let’s Talk. What just happened? Come with your joy, sorrow or grief and let’s find hope
