Marketplace Forum

Marketplace Forums are ongoing series of group discussions on topical economic and cultural issues that shape how we live, work and otherwise organize our lives. Through these we come to better understand the factors that are impacting our families, communities, nation and world. Although not primarily religious studies, Marketplace Forums seek to approach issues from a spiritual perspective and discuss appropriate attitudes and responses.

Examples of topics from the past include "Globalism","Generation X", "The Biotech Revolutionā€¯ , "Living with Uncertaintyā€¯ , "The Coming Tidal Wave of Women in Leadership Positions" and "The Shrinking Middle Class." Marketplace Forums are held on select Saturday mornings during winter months from 8:45 to 11:00 AM, with breakfast provided. It's hard to imagine a more interesting or important way to spend a wintry Saturday morning than in spirited and informative discussions such as these.

Our facilitator Tony Keating (picture, upper left) leads these forums wonderfully. His research is always first-rate, his presentations measured yet thought-provoking. Tony may be the prototypical informed citizen, the kind our country needs more of, just a bright guy who cares and probes and thinks and seeks a course independent of partisan politics.

Check the "Calendar" on this website for upcoming Forums.
