Dalai Lama, Tibetan monks, and the Karmapa: Teachings about Tibetan Buddhism
Combined Meeting of Adult Forum and Adventures in Religion Jaggers Parlor, 9:45 am.
Betty Churchman will tell us what it was like, when she attended the teachings of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, on July 6 and July 7, 2010, and also attended his 75th birthday celebration on July 6th in Dharamsala, India. She studied Buddhism there in June and July 2010. Most of her Buddhist teachings were from Tibetan monks and His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje. The Karmapa is the head of the 900 year old Karma Kagyu. The Karma Kagyu is the largest sub-school of the Kagyu, itself one of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
Fritha Robinson, LPC, will talk about why Schools are not Kid-Friendly.
This should be interesting to some of the teachers and parents among us.
Bill Maginnis will show some of his interesting TED talks or YouTube
Carol Darwin and some friends will talk about various aspects of Sufism.
The program will cover many aspects of Sufism - philosophy, poetry, teachings, etc.
Lorraine Levine will facilitate a discussion of current issues.
Youth and teens, don’t let the "adult" in Adult
Forum fool you. Any week in which there is no
class or curriculum for you to attend, you are
welcome to participate in adult forum. Some
of the topics might interest you.
As always, we welcome people from church who want to speak or arrange for guest speakers at the forum. Please try to be on time, especially when there are non-church speakers. That way, they can start sooner and give you more of a chance to ask questions.
We have speaking vacancies coming up,
so let’s have your ideas for contacts and
programs. We also have a new DVD player,
so if you have something to show us,
please arrange a time for us to see it.
