Sundays on Zoom

Sunday, November 7 10:30 AM   Rev Wanda Daniel  “A Living Compassion”

Rooting in a living compassion, we move and flow. Our perspectives shift and our lives change. A powerful metamorphosis creates a new way of living day by day. We ground in this living compassion and continual flow of change, creating lives that reveal works of justice and art?!?

 

Sunday, November 14, 4:00 PM   Short talk/discussion led by Rev Wanda Daniel “A Living Justice”

Second Principle: We covenant to affirm and promote justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. Gather your thoughts, feelings and experiences about this second principle, and bring them to enrich our community growth!

 

Sunday, November 21 4:00 PM, Margaret English “Giving Thanks”

This will be a sharing on the benefits of giving thanks, for what do we give thanks and to whom we give thanks.  What are some of the things in our lives we take for granted and for which we should be thankful? It is a discussion to prepare us for the celebration to come.  Join for joy amidst unending COVID.

Wednesday Lecture Series

 

Wednesday Lecture Series 7 PM via Zoom

Wednesday, November 10 Wednesday Lecture Series  7pm    “The Culture Industry and the Mass Production of Ideology”

A major feature of Critical Theory is the analysis of how power is maintained in the postmodern world. According to The Frankfurt School, the mass media plays a central role.

We will watch videos about the Frankfurt School’s Culture Industry Theory. This is the notion that the mass media is creating a “manufactured consent” as Noam Chomsky would put it. Adorno and Horkheimer argue that culture and popular opinion are managed by the mass media. We will explore this basic concept.The first video is a brief introduction to the notion titled “What is Culture Industry?” https://youtu.be/NGNSBUL7gzQ  (3:56)

The second video is a philosophical and critical theory of popular culture and the impact of mass media on ideology. The Culture Industry – Adorno, Horkheimer, Neomarxism and Ideology https://youtu.be/wQeHs4YVeug  (18:31)
