October 3, 2021 @ 9:30 am – 12:15 pm
via Zoom

Join us in-person or online for this community gathering. For our program, we will hear from Vanessa Zoltan

Atheist-Jewish Chaplain, podcaster, and author Vanessa Zoltan joins us to speak about her childhood, the experiences that led her to divinity school, and her epiphany that the secular world is filled with sacred connections. For Zoltan, sacred connections cross the boundaries of religion, culture, and time, and are transmitted in the most quotidian way: ink on paper. Learn more about how literature—and perhaps any art form—can foster a life of profound purpose and meaning.
