Issues we argue about at the dinner table: A guide to becoming everyday prophets
Presented by the Rev. John Colatch.
This six week session will explore our finding a prophetic voice in the midst of the issues that matter most to our families and in our society.
About our leader: Rev. Dr. John Patrick Colatch spent more than thirty years as a college and university chaplain, including stints at Lafayette College and Bucknell University. He was ordained in the United Methodist Church, but these days prefers the company of Episcopalians. He also has extensive background in bereavement care and education, and, in retirement, has become a certified Master Gardener with the Penn State Extension. He is married to Connie and they have two grown children and three grandchildren, living in the U.S and the UK.
1. Rediscovering the prophetic tradition

5. Matters of life and death: Beginning and end of life decisions
6. We're prophetic as heck: Issues we need to get excited about locally
