Johnson Service Corps regrets to announce that the SpiritedTalks 2017 event scheduled for next Thursday, May 25th at St. Philip's Episcopal Church has been CANCELLED due to unforeseen circumstances within our organization. We remain grateful to Lynden Harris and Hidden Voices for their partnership on this event. Refunds to ticketed guests are currently being processed. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
Please join us for SpiritedTalks 2017, brought to you by Johnson Service Corps.
Three fascinating speakers will share short presentations about how spirituality influences their everyday leadership and careers. Keynote speaker Lynden Harris will give a talk entitled: "Present Company Included: Radical Engagement as a Path of Love." Harris is founder and director of Hidden Voices, a local nonprofit with a mission "to challenge, strengthen, and connect our diverse communities through the transformative power of the individual voice."
In addition to the keynote, young adults from Johnson Service Corps' leadership development program will also share inspiring stories of spirituality and leadership from a young-adult perspective.
Through an intimate evening of storytelling, we hope you will be inspired to integrate your own spirituality more deeply with your everyday life, including career, family, and civic engagement.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Please note: Tickets are available online for $8 or $35 through 5/24/17. Tickets may be purchased at the event for $10 and $45, as available.
