November is National Adoption Month! In recognition, the 20/20 Ministry invites you to a presentation on two different programs that seek to provide care for children in crisis: the Safe Families ministry and NYS fostering to adoption. Please join us on Saturday, November 19th in the church offices at 174 PPW, 11 am – 1 pm, for brief presentations on how these programs work to serve children in need. There will be plenty of time for questions. Children are welcome but no childcare will be provided. Lunch will be served so please RSVP to Judy Hilkey at email@example.com or Beverly Sloan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In How to Survive the Apocalypse Robert Joustra and Alissa Wilkinson examine a number of popular stories — from the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica to the purging of innocence in Game of Thrones to the hordes of zombies in The Walking Dead — and argue that such apocalyptic stories reveal a lot about us here and now, about how we conceive of our life together, including some of our deepest tensions and anxieties.
Besides analyzing the dsytopian shift in popular culture, Joustra and Wilkinson also suggest how Christians can live faithfully and with integrity in such a cultural context.
Alissa is the Film Critic at Vox.com and an Associate Professor of English and Humanities at The King’s College. Alissa and her husband, Tom, have been active members at our Clinton Hill location pretty much since its inception.
Please join us on November 3 at 12 p.m. for this lunchtime conversation with Alissa to discuss her book and her work. Lunch will be provided and there is a $10 suggested donation.
Please RSVP by emailing Kaytie Eaton at email@example.com.
