Kairos is a time each Sunday of enrichment for mind and spirit. A mix of timely topics, Bible Study, and theological exploration are presented by scholars, theologians and other professionals. Kairos meets at 8:45 a.m. and 10:05 a.m. in the Fireside Room. The same topic is presented at both times. If you typically worship at 10:45 a.m., feel free to come to the 10:05 a.m. Kairos session and leave at 10:45 a.m. for the start of worship.

Winter/Spring 2017 Themes & Speakers

Descriptions for Winter/Spring 2017 presentations will be updated as we receive information from the speakers.

April 23: Faith and Photography

Jim Radford, Incarnation member

“Seeing is believing.” “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We have heard these sayings many times.  The practice of photography can transport us into God’s creation and build upon our fundamentals of faith.  Jim Radford, Incarnation member, has traveled the world, capturing life with his photography. His faith stories come to life for Kairos.

After retiring from 3M as a manager of Corporate Marketing Service, Jim Radford started a video production business and contributed to community television. Photography has been his interest since early childhood. Not only has he been a teacher of photography but he has also traveled the world, capturing life in photos.  Jim has won many awards with his displays.  You can view his online gallery at http://radfordpictures.com.  Jim and his wife, Donna are members of Incarnation and have been involved in many ways.

April 30: Living in Hope as Easter People

Susan Palo Cherwien, Poet of Hymn Texts

We have a passage to newness when we live in hope as Easter people. “Christ is risen. Christ is risen indeed!” We proclaim this greeting to each other during the season of Easter. Our celebration of the resurrection is not a memorial to an event 2,000 years ago, but rather a living acclamation that life in Christ is a resurrection life, for Christ takes us by the hand and bids us rise as well.

Susan Palo Cherwien, freelance writer and musician,  received her bachelor’s degree in church music and voice from Wittenberg University, attended the SpandaueKirchenmusikschule, Berlin; completed the Abschlussprüfung in voice at the Hochschule der Künste Berlin and a Master of Liberal Studies from Mundelein College, Chicago, where she focused on spirituality, ritual, and the arts. Susan has composed numerous hymn texts which appear in denominational hymnals in the United States, Canada, and Europe and has written for many educational materials.
