Our part of the Bay Area has many educational opportunities. There are frequent lectures at Stanford by world-renowned experts (recent events have included Karen Armstrong and Robert Putnam) as well as programs with a longer form (e.g., a half-day workshop with Diana Butler Bass). These events are local but not typically on the All Saints campus. They are of interest for education, self- and community-understanding, and growth. So we highlight them to bring them to others' attention and to foster the health of our church community and our community at large.
