In the Summer Adult Education Series CPC will explore several dimensions of life that have significant impact on how we view ourselves in relation with others and how we interact with others. Since the meanings we ascribe to our experience and perceptions differ from person to person and from group to group, we are divided about some things and united by others. In the Summer Series explore the dynamics, complexities and moral questions raised in by certain aspects of socio-economics, politics, faith traditions, and the role of music and art in bringing people together. Many moral questions arise at the intersection between economy and society. Plans for presenters are being finalized. Additional information will be available soon.
