First DVD from Meaning of Life in library

By popular demand, the first DVD from the series "The Meaning of Life:  Perspectives from the World's Great Intellectual Traditions" is now available in the Banner Library.  As our adult discussions move through these 30-minute lectures by Professor Garfield of Smith College, participants have asked to see lectures they've missed.  This DVD is added to a small collection of materials our group has used in the last few years, and can be found on the second-from-the-bottom shelf next to the door to the office kitchen.  The DVD includes a lecture on "The meaning of the meaning of life," 3 lectures on the Bhagavad-Gita, and the first 2 lectures on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics.

On Sunday, December 13th, we view and discuss "Stoicism - Rationality and Acceptance."

Hmmm... Interesting Opportunity

Looking for a important way to serve your church, even with the limited time you have?  Consider being a Sunday morning usher.  You'll arrive 15 minutes early, once every five weeks, and stay a few minutes after the service to pick up Friendship Pad sheets and left-behind bulletins.  Greeting worshippers with a friendly "Good Morning!" and helping with the collection of the offering are the other tasks involved.  It's not a tough gig, but an important one.  It's a great way to get to know new people and see some "already" friends.  Please let Dave Donnelly know he should sign you up.  Call him at 815-479-8748, or email him at
