Sunday Morning Forum
The Sunday Morning Forum meets at 10:10 AM in the Chalice House between worship services. Join us for a talk and free trade coffee! All are welcome. Free events.
March 26, 10:10 a.m.: Measuring Threats to U.S. Security: Where does President Trump Fit In? With Greg Thielmann, who has the deep, broad experience and knowledge to speak factually about these issues. He was a U.S. Foreign Service Officer for 25 years, last serving as Director of Strategic, Proliferation and Military Affairs. He then worked as a senior staffer with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (2005-2009). Last August, he retired from seven years as a Senior Fellow at the Arms Control Association and joined the ACA Board of Directors. Greg Thielmann will address the difficulty the American public has in assessing and prioritizing the security threats faced by the United States. He'll cover the way the Congress and President Trump appear to understand the experts' assessments and also discuss the looming question of how Trump's temperament may itself pose a threat to our survival.
April 2, 10:10 a.m.: It's Amazing What You See, with John Kelly, Columnist, The Washington Post. John Kelly writes "John Kelly's Washington", a daily column about the less-famous side of our area. Often inspired by what he happens to 'see', he'll talk about how he comes up with his column ideas and about life at the Post.
THE EVENING FORUM
The Evening Forum meets on the second Sunday of each month at 7 p.m. in our auditorium.
April 9, 7 p.m.: "Elevate the Debate" with Robert Reischauer, PhD, The Urban Institute.
