HOT TOPICS: UNITED STATES INVOLVEMENT IN OTHER COUNTRIES- SYRIA
Speaker: Professor Saleh Sbenaty from Middle Tennessee State University

At these monthly luncheons we'll hear from an expert on a specific issue affecting the world right nowand then open up the floor for a group discussion.This month: Globally, the United States is notorious for intervening in foreign affairs. This places huge implications on our international relations because of our long history of interference and the reasons and means by which we do so. This history brings us to the complicated questions of "is it ever necessary to intervene?", "when do we intervene?", and "why do we intervene?" in foreign affairs. These are questions that never elicit simple answers, if any answers, but with the government of the United States declaring to take action in Syria because of the chemical weapons being used in the Syrian civil war, it is necessary for the people of the United States to actively think about what our government is doing and the significance of this role the government is continuing to take on by acting.

SPIRITUALITY OF THE LABYRINTH
Led by Sally Ahner
Grounding the power of the Spirit into human life requires including the body’s wisdom in our practices. Nowhere is this more obvious or accessible than when walking the labyrinth, an ancient sacred symbol found in many cultures. In this workshop you will learn how to ground so that the powerful spiritual energies awakened by the labyrinth can be put to use in daily life. This is a participatory workshop with enough instruction to put the practices in context and lots of activities to increase spiritual and bodily awareness. There will be journaling and a opportunity to walk the labyrinth.

PAULA LARKE PERFORMANCE
- Can We All Just Pray Together?
Paula Larke's musical stylings are eclectic - reminiscent of 60's Motown, Nina Simone's folk-blues, traditional Appalachian mountain laments, and old-time Pentecostal call and response, just to name a few. She has been described as electric, inspiring, and hilarious. She pokes fun at ignorance, prejudice and sexism. At the heart of her parody and satire is a love of humanity with all its flaws. - Rinehart Baron

HOT TOPICS: THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SEXUALITY AND CHRISTIANITY
At this monthly luncheon we'll hear from an expert on a specific issue affecting the world right nowand then open up the floor for a group discussion. This month: For many faith communities, sexuality is a hotbed of controversy. Christian communities are by no means immune to such controversy and internal struggle. Debate around sexuality and Christianity spans a broad spectrum - from Westboro Baptist Church's notorious anti-gay campaign to denominational debates over the legitimacy of LGBTQI marriages and qualifications for ordination. Guided by the narratives of local Christians, we'll talk about this complex issue, specifically addressing various interpretations of what the Bible says (or doesn't say) about non-traditional sexualities. The conversation will be centered around reconciling sexuality and spirituality and what that means in a Christian context.
