From Tom Spencer, iAct (formerly AAIM) CEO:
“Security and contentment can come only through interdependence of every man upon every other man.” – Walter Russell
The theme for this month’s Red Bench program is Security.
We all define security in different ways. Some think of walls and defense, while others see open doors and extended arms. Freedom from harm, financial well being, stability, avoidance of risk and threat, and the presence of the Divine watching over us are all examples of security. What comes to mind when you think about security?
We hope that you will join us for a heartfelt “interfaith conversation that matters” next Tuesday evening, February the 22nd. If you have never experienced The Red Bench before, come prepared to hear others share insights from their life experiences and their diverse faith traditions – and we hope that you will be ready to share your thoughts too! All are welcome -even those who do not claim a faith tradition. We are encouraging Red Bench regulars to bring a friend to one of the most engaging dialogue programs in the city.
The Red Bench takes place at First United Methodist Church’s Family Life Center (13th & Lavaca Streets), beginning with a light dinner and informal conversation at 6:00. The program begins at 6:30 and concludes at 8:00pm.
Free parking is available in the garage immediately south of the Family Life Center at 13th & Lavaca Streets. Please park on the third level or above. If the bar is down, just take a ticket — you will not be charged when you exit.
If you’ve already registered for The Red Bench at any point, please skip to our RSVP links:*Hosts, please indicate if you’re available to facilitate a table discussion.
All are welcome to attend regardless of registration or RSVP, but your response helps us prepare the food and materials.
