Mar. 31 — “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Easter Sunday,” with the Rev. Evan Young. We spend most of our lives more or less secure in our convictions about what’s going to happen next, and (oddly) denying what we know is inevitable. And the Easter story told and retold in the Christian tra-dition is filled with surprises that confound our expectations. Today we look at our own expectations, and the surprising deaths and rebirths that transform them.

Apr. 7 — “From Fear to Joy,” with Sonja Richter. It is safe to say that we live in uncertain times and many of us are riddled with fear, anxiety, and helplessness. Together, we will explore how we move from a place of fear to a place of joy. In the process we will learn how to really make a difference, for ourselves and others.

Apr. 14 — “Through a Glass, Darkly,” with the Rev. Evan Young. How we see ourselves is one thing; how others see us is another. How we are — that’s yet another. Today we take a look at a passage from the Christian New Testament, and a look at ourselves, and see what we shall see.
