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.

The Christians

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.

September 28--Conservation Today Review--1802 Chapman Rd, Huntertown, IN 46748--6-8 pm

What would change if we understood natural lands as more important to us than electricity and cell phones, as crucial to us as clean water and air? Jim Barrett III, a founding member of ACRES, wrote a paper for a 1964 Quest Club presentation. The paper, “Conservation Today,” provides a thoughtful and compelling case for land conservation that is very relevant today.  Barrett urges us to “temper our power with our respect for the life we do not understand and did not create, but with which we share this earth...that on its health rests our own.

Our own numbers and power...demand we expand our ethical conscience to include the land and the life it supports.” Learn more and download the paper at acreslandtrust.org/conservationtoday, read it, then join the discussion!  Hosted by Jason Kissel.
