“Working” is the theme of a new speaker series that will start this summer and run through the course of the next year. It’s inspired by the Studs Terkel book of that name in which “people talk about what they do all day and how they feel about what they do.” There are many people within our congregation engaged in fascinating work. This series will give us an opportunity to learn more about what they do.
The sessions will take place after a brief coffee break following the Sunday morning service once a month. Those who are interested in the speaker series will be invited to take their coffee/tea into the Christy Room for about 45 minutes. The first 15-20 minutes will be an informal talk by the speaker about the work they do…leaving the remaining time for questions from those in attendance.
Our first speaker will be Dr. Brenda Weigel on Sunday, July 9th. Dr. Weigel is a pediatric hematologist-oncologist and is affiliated with the University of Minnesota Medical Center. ¬ Dr. Weigel is currently the Director of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. She is also a professor at the University of Minnesota’s Cancer Center and the Department of Pediatrics, and the recipient of the Lehman/Children’s Cancer Research Fund Endowed Chair in Pediatric Cancer
