9:30 &11:00 "The Process of Kung Fu," The Rev. Christine Robinson
About a year ago, I started taking Kung Fu classes because it seemed like the best way to advance my Tai Chi skills. I went into it for the exercise, no more, but in the end I learned a lot about myself, the world, and the ethic of the warrior. That got me to reflect on how we grow, what the world is really like, and what’s become of warriors in our world.

Music: High Desert Brass Quintet

Kip Bobroff, lead organizer for Albuquerque Interfaith, an association of religious congregations, schools, unions and non profit organizations, and Kristin Ackerson, a member of First Unitarian, will help us understand how building a culture of connection is becoming an interfaith effort.
