I’m Not Leaving: Helping Innocents Survive the Rwandan Genocide

Starts:
Ends:
Location: Un. of Saint Francis, North Campus Auditorium
Address:
2701 Spring St.,
Fort Wayne, IN 46808
Description:

On Wednesday, September 20, Reimbold & Anderson and the University of St. Francis will co-sponsor “I Am Not Leaving: Helping Innocents Survive the Rwandan Genocide.” The presentation features Carl Wilkens, who was a humanitarian aid worker in Rwanda and became the only American to remain in the country during the 1994 genocide. His efforts saved the lives of hundreds of children orphaned during the massacre of the Tutsi minority by the Hutu ethnic majority. Yet his message doesn’t focus on the horror and loss of the tragedy, but on the courage and morality of those who stood up against the wrong and helped Rwanda through an amazing recovery process. The lecture will be at 7:30 p.m. in the North Campus auditorium at the University of St. Francis, 2701 Spring St., Fort Wayne. This is a free, no obligation public education event.

PBS39 Welcomes the Mobile Vet Center

Starts:
Ends:
Location: PBS39
Address:
2501 East Coliseum Blvd.,
Fort Wayne, IN 46805-1562
Description:

The Department of Veterans Affairs Mobile Vet Center (MVC) will welcome area veterans in front of PBS39 at 2501 East Coliseum Boulevard, Fort Wayne, on Thursday, September 21, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Guests enter PBS39 from Trier Road (see map).

Mobile Vet Centers are designed to extend the reach of Vet Center services through focused outreach, direct service provision, and referral to communities that do not meet the requirements for a “brick and mortar” Vet Center, but where there are Veterans, Servicemembers, and their families in need of services. In many instances these communities are distant from existing services and are considered rural or highly rural.

Each Mobile Vet Center includes confidential counseling space for direct service provision as well as laptop connectivity to VA Medical Center (VAMC) and Veteran Benefit Admin (VBA) systems. Vet Center staff collaborates with VA partners to create a single VA Footprint at events to ensure access to all available VA services and benefits.

PBS39 hosts the Mobile Vet Center as part of the station’s community service coinciding with the broadcast of Ken Burns’ The Vietnam War. The 10-part 18-hour documentary airs weeknights in September and encores weekly on Tuesdays beginning in October. More program information is available at PBS39 online, wfwa.org, and pbs.org.

The Christians

Starts:
Ends:
Location: Merillat Centre for the Arts (Huntington University)
Address:
2303 College Avenue,
Huntington, IN 46750
Description:

The Christians will debut in the Zurcher Auditorium of Huntington University’s Merillat Centre for the Arts on Sept. 21-23.

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. with special 2 p.m. matinee performance on Sept. 23. A special added performance is scheduled for Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. in conjunction with the Forester Lecture Series. John Brown University’s Dr. James Bruce will explore themes presented in the play on Thursday, September 28 at 7 p.m. in the Zurcher Auditorium.

In The Christians, Pastor Paul has led his mega-church from humble beginnings to grand success. However, when the dynamic preacher informs his church of an ideological epiphany, this fundamental shift could cause an irrevocable divide between the leader of the faith and his followers. The Christians is a profound and engrossing play about contesting doctrines of faith, infused with genuine humanity and religious sensitivity. Christian and secular audiences alike have praised this bold and refreshing play, which premiered at the 2014 Humana Theatre Festival and also played at the renowned Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago.

For tickets, call the Merillat Centre for the Arts Box Office at (260) 359-4261 from 1-4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
