Short Programs for Clubs/Groups

“Walking with Mr. Thoreau.” We can learn a lot from a two hundred year old man; It’s his birthday this year!  This presentation focuses on Thoreau’s unusual life path and its relevance for active folks in the twenty-first century. This presentation will interest those who love the natural world, practice meditation, or enjoy learning about unusual and influential Americans. This presentation can be modified to fit each group’s needs. This is easy to do because Thoreau contributed to so many different fields. Your group can join people all over the world who are celebrating this amazing man’s life during 2017!

“Let The World Know You Are Alive.” This presentation is the perfect program for women’s groups. It tells the story of Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women, and her sister, May, a successful artist. Both these nineteenth-century women were determined to go their own unconventional ways, fulfill their dreams, and obtain recognition as professionals. They were sisters in fact, and in spirit. They will inspire you!

“What a Christian Needs to Know: Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims” This is a three part series designed for church Sunday Schools or Wednesday night gatherings. Why does that Hindu god have so many arms? Why do Muslims travel to Mecca? Your questions will finally be answered!

“The Sublime in Life and Art.” In nineteenth century America, a new way of thinking arose, influencing the view of God, literature, and particularly Art. This philosophical idea still has a lot to teach us and still influences creative people today. It also addresses this question: Can you touch the sublime?
