Week 3 Coming Up!

7/10/2022 5:43 pm

It is hard to believe we are entering Week 3 of the 2022 season already!  

 

We have been enjoying spectacular weather on the grounds this summer.  A farmer friend of mine said today, "We need the rain, but these are good haying days!"  He is right.  And here at CHQ, sunny days are the best!

During Week 2, I actually made myself take a break and attend a morning lecture.  Brandon Stanton, the author of Humans of New York, spoke on Friday.  I have followed him on FaceBook over the years and his stories are captivating, heartwarming, and sometimes, tragic.  But he brings people together from all over the world and show us what humanity is really all about.  His philosophy is: Belief and opinion divide us.  Struggling and emotions unite us.  He knows how to get a story out of folks.  If you are not familiar with his work, take some time to stop over and visit his page here.  

 

Our CLSC speaker last week was Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass.  Sitting on the steps of Alumni Hall and listening to her talk about what our relationship with the earth should be and all that we can learn from it was fascinating.  It was one of those moments I wanted to linger in - soaking up sun and wisdom.

 

This coming week will be a busy one.  We are welcoming two of our scholarship recipients to the grounds as they begin their writing classes. There is nothing like actually sitting in the room with your instructor and fellow writers and I'm sure they are looking forward to being on the grounds.

 

The theme this week is "The Future of Human Rights" and CLSC author Erica Chenoweth will be presenting a discussion on her book Civil Resistance: What Everyone Needs to Know.  I can't wait to hear her!

 

Welling Hall will be discussing Blind Spots, Experiments in the Self Cure of Race Prejudice by Henry Smith Leiper in our Brown Bag event this week.  That's Wednesday at 12:15 on the porch.  Also, on Wednesday evening at 6:30 in the Hall of Christ, Arden Ryan will share his stories from his gap year of traveling.  Teaching English in Guatemala, India, Viet Nam, and Thailand sounds like a wonderful topic.  We hope you'll join us.

And finally next Sunday holds two of our biggest events of the year - the Great American Picnic and the Silent Auction!!!  The picnic will be on the lawn of Alumni Hall - food, games, and music are in store.  The auction is in Seaver Gymnasium - just a few steps down the hill from here.  Both start at noon - the picnic ends at 2:30, the auction at 4:00. 

 

Come and support your Alumni Association this week!
