      Mark your calendars for an outstanding series of Forums this fall:

 

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 12, 2017      Contact: Carol Tierney 218-348-0565

Casas Adobes Congregational Church UCC introduces the first of its fall Forum series: "Intergroup Conflict: Why We're Divided" on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 11:30am in McNear Hall on the church campus. Jeff Stone, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Arizona, will explore why conflict between groups is escalating in America. Why, after electing our first African-American President, are racial tensions so high? Why do conservatives and liberals have so much trouble getting along? What do immigration, terrorism, and women's right have in common? Is there any way to reduce the hostility and bridge the growing divide?

Dr. Stone's research investigates the basic psychological processes underlying prejudice and stereotyping and the mechanisms of attitude and behavior change. He has published extensively on this topic and held workshops for health care faculties and other organizations throughout the University of Arizona and on other campuses.

This fall's program of Forums, under the heading "Informed Speakers -Timely Topics - 60 Intriguing Minutes," also includes:

-on October 15: "Guns in America," Dr. Jennifer Carlson, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Government & Public Policy at the University of Arizona.

-on November 19: "HiRISE: 3-D Images of Mars, the Red Planet," Ari Espinoza, media specialist, the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary High Resolution Imaging Experiment.

Casas Adobes UCC is located at 6801 N. Oracle Road between Ina and Orange Grove. The Forum is free and open to the public. For further information call 520-297-1181 or go to www.caucc.org.

 

 

Calling all congregational members and friends! Even though the school year just ended in May and doesn’t start again until August, it is time for us to start thinking about buying school supplies for next year.

from Tucson for the summer and want to help you can send a cash donation to the church and we will buy the supplies for you! There will be a box in the Narthex labeled “Keeling School Supplies” from mid-June through July for accepting donations. Or, you can drop off your donations in the
office. Thank you so much for helping make a difference in the lives of our Keeling Kids yet again!
