Jan. 18: The Story of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church – Past, Present & Future
The Rev. Jemonde Taylor – As plans to construct a new stadium, office space, businesses, and housing move forward in downtown Raleigh, the potential for increased flooding, and gentrification, increases.

Jan. 25: Hope – The Heart of Judaism
Rabbi Jenny Solomon – Rabbi Jenny Solomon will illuminate how hope is expressed in Jewish tradition using examples from the Hebrew Bible, the Holocaust and the founding of the modern state of Israel. For Jews, hope is a theological stance which enables us to endure and to thrive, especially in challenging times. Hope has been among the most adaptive strategies for the Jewish people through time and space and continues to function as the heart of our people’s faith.
