2018 JANE BAIRD LECTURE
Living with the Living Dead: What Zombies Can Teach Us about Life, Community, and Hope
FEATURING AUTHOR GREG GARRETT October 18, 2018 at 7 p.m. — FREE and open to the public When faced with the unthinkable, the terrifying, and the inexplicable, how do people navigate a sense of themselves? How do they form community when all about them is the possibility of annihilation? Under such circumstances, do “the rules of life” as we understand them from the past still apply, or have the ways in which ethical decisions are made been irrevocably changed? Using the popular narratives of the zombie apocalypse, Garrett explores these types of questions by asking his readers to deeply consider the ways in which their faith and faith traditions encourage a simultaneously fearless and humble response. Reserve your seat at the discussion at https://2018_janebairdlecture.eventbrite. com. Please contact Kerith Lee, email@example.com, with any questions you may have.
MUSIC MUSIKGARTEN ALLEGRO MUSIC CLASSES FOR CHILDREN THROUGH AGE 8 If you want a fun, structured activity for your child that is as educational as it is fun, Allegro is for you! Movement and music activities are perfect for child development. Music immerses the child in language, evokes movement, stimulates the brain and fosters physical coordination – all in a group setting that builds community. Using Musikgarten’s newly revised curricula for infants through second graders, Brenda Pruitt teaches our Allegro classes, which offer children a joyful setting for mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and social growth. All class costs have been reduced to $100 for the first child, $70 for each additional child in the same curriculum, except for K-2 Allegro Choir ($75 for all). Four class options for infants and toddlers to age 3: • Monday, 11:15 – 11:45 a.m. • Tuesday, 11:15 – 11:45 a.m. • Wednesday, 11:15 – 11:45 a.m. • Thursday, 11:15 – 11:45 a.m. Two class options for ages 3-5: • Monday, 12:15 – 1 p.m. • Tuesday, 1–1:45 p.m. Kindergarten through 2nd Grade Allegro Choir: • Wednesday, 4:30–5:30 p.m. Enroll online at cathedralATL.org/allegro.
SPIRITUALITY CENTERING PRAYER ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS Centering prayer is spiritual practice that stills the body, opens the heart, and helps center our lives in a heightened sense of God’s presence.
