St. Paul’s letter to the Romans contains the names of many women who were an integral part of the early Christian communities.

Be inspired by their stories as we travel back in time to be in the company of courageous women; the first Christian mystics Junia, Priscilla, and Phoebe along with their companion Paul. 

Facilitator Rick Klein is a presenter in the Befriending the Mystics series for Contemplative Vision.

Wardrobes & Rings
April 5, 2019 – Show at 7pm – Doors at 6pm

Starring:
David Payne as C.S. Lewis
Gordon Tett as J.R.R. Tolkein
Audrey Nay as Hattie

Wardrobes & Rings is a play set in Oxford’s Eagle & Child pub. Aging and legendary authors, J.R.R. Tolkien and his great friend C.S. Lewis, meet for what turns out to be the very last time.

They were lions of 20th century British fantasy, giants of a literary genre that reached millions of readers, young and old alike, with mystifying adventures to entertain and deep truths to move people’s hearts.C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia) and J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings) were also distinguished faculty members at Oxford University and participants in a literary group known as The Inklings.

Their robust philosophical discourse served an uncommon friendship that was not without its differences. Life’s circumstances and sometimes unresolved disagreements forced an uncomfortable season of estrangement.

In Wardrobes and Rings we join “Jack” and “Tollers,” as they knew each other, at Oxford’s historic Eagle and Child pub for one last visit, tempered by thawing humor, confession and reconciliation. Remarkable lives. Memorable theatre.

The New Christy Minstrels
Still Under the Direction of Randy Sparks

April 26, 2019, 7 p.m.

Because of a death in the New Christy Minstrels family, their concert (previously scheduled for December 15, 2018) is being postponed until April 26, 2019. Tickets already purchased will apply toward the new date. Thank you for your kind consideration.

           (This is NOT a tribute band.)  The New Christy Minstrels® (officially known as The New Christy Minstrels®, Still Under the Direction of Randy Sparks) is an American large-ensemble folk music group founded by Randy Sparks in 1961, and currently in concerts across the country, still going, better than ever with 100% record of at least one standing ovation per concert since Randy Sparks revised the group with the current line up of stellar entertainers!
From their beginnings as prominent figures in the early-1960s U.S. folk revival, the group recorded over 20 albums and had several hits, including Green, Green, Saturday Night, Today, Denver, and This Land Is Your Land. Their 1962 debut album, Presenting The New Christy Minstrels won a Grammy Award and sat in the Billboard charts for two years.  Available at their live concerts are the current CDs:  The Greatest Hits CD, RECYCLED; their most recently recorded CD with this group of performers,  NICE TIME TO BE ALIVE,  and a rare find in the recordings from the Sony Record vaults –  the RAMBLIN’  Extended CD.
           The group has launched the musical careers of several musicians, including Kenny Rogers, Gene Clark, Kim Carnes, and Barry McGuire.  No performing group has ever spawned so many successful musical careers as the New Christy Minstrels®.  “For over fifty years we have been the best talent show ever,” says Sparks. ” We still are.”  Don’t miss any opportunity to see this stellar group in concert!  For their history and present accomplishments visit www.thenewchristyminstrels.com

Advance Tickets: Members $25, Non-Members $27
Day of Show: Members $28, Non-members $30

More than 10 years have passed since a Walk to Defeat ALS event in Colorado Springs, and we can’t wait for you to join us in bringing the Walk back to your community.

They are your neighbors, your coworkers, your friends, or your family.

The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter strives to fight ALS and empower people living with ALS today. We need your help in fighting ALS on all fronts: fundraising, advocacy, and medical research. By working together, we help to support families affected by ALS, expand care, and develop better treatments.
 
Most of all, we urgently need to find the cure for ALS. The Southern Colorado Walk to Defeat ALS unifies families, friends, communities, companies, and YOU in striding toward that goal.

FREE EVENT for members and non-members

When you take on the challenge of being an entrepreneur, you take on the role of sales person. Cold calling. Lead generation. Overcoming objections. Closing. Most of these things do not come naturally, even if you are passionate about your product or service. It takes preparation and practice. During this interactive session, you'll be designing a sales strategy, working on your verbiage and role playing a prospect conversation.

Kim Richey Live in Concert
Benefit for the Friends of Castlewood Canyon
Friday, June 28 7 P.M.


Kim Richey is a traveler.  Musically, physically, emotionally. Not merely restless or rootless, it’s who she is. Willing to follow where the music leads, she’s landed in Los Angeles, Nashville, London, working with a who’s who of producers – Richard Bennett, Hugh Padgham, Bill Bottrell, Angelo, Giles Martin. She’s attracted a coterie of top-shelf genre-definers — Jason Isbell, Trisha Yearwood, Chuch Prophet, My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel, Wilco’s Pat Sansone – for her critically-lauded projects.

Part of what draws them to the dusky honey of her crystalline alto is the way she writes: to and from the soul, never flinching from the conflicts and crushing moments, yet always finding dignity and resilience. Her arc of the human heart is true. True enough that over the years, Richey’s been both Grammy nominated and awarded. First nominated for Yearwood’s truculently groove-country “Baby, I Lied,” then part of the Best Southern Gospel, Country or Bluegrass Album Amazing Grace 2: A Country Salute to Gospel, plus that #1 co-written with Radney Foster “Nobody Wins.”“Harlan Howard said – and maybe I’ve taken it too much to heart, ‘It’s always more believable if you sing it in the first person.’ And when I sit down to write, if it’s something I’m going to sing, I want it to be what I want it to be. I don’t really settle, which may make me a little hard to write with. But I have to be able to stand up and sing it night after night, and I can’t if I don’t really believe it.”

Those standards made Richey’s “Glimmer” one of TIME’s Top Records of 1999 and “Rise” named People’s Best Alt-Country Record of 2002. Even when singing from the point of view of a guy working on a barge going up and down the Ohio River in “Dear John,” her aim is true. As she says of the man refusing to read the letter that ends his romance, “because if I don’t read your letter, then it’s not over. Sometimes these songs are specific and personal, but it’s also true in ways that reflect so many other people’s experience, too.”

Doors: 6 p.m. for TLCA Members & Friends of Castlewood Canyon;  6:15 p.m. for General Public
