Working is the theme of an ongoing speaker series in which people talk about what they do all day and how they feel about what they do. Many people within our congregation are engaged in fascinating work, and this series gives us an opportunity to learn more about what they do.
On Mother’s Day, May 13th, Renate Amann will speak about the “job” of being a mom. Renate and her husband moved to Minnesota from Germany in the late 1990’s where they started their family of three. After a legal career working for the German government, Renate started a new path in the Twin Cities as a teacher and proctor for the German language, while raising three children. In honor of all mothers, her talk will focus on what it means to be a mom, the challenges of raising children without extended family living nearby, overcoming cultural differences and the 24-hour challenge of always being on the “job”.
Renate’s talk will take place after a brief coffee break following the Sunday morning service. Those who are interested will be invited to take their coffee/tea into the Christy Room for about 45 minutes. The first 20-25 minutes will be an informal talk by Renate, leaving the remaining time for questions from those in attendance.
