Adult Formation Class: What Does It Mean to Be a Just Society? with Dr. James Muyskens
The prophets Amos and Isaiah call upon God’s people to “let Justice roll down like waters.” The Founders of this nation stated in The Preamble to the American Constitution that one of its primary goals is to “establish justice.” Martin Luther King proclaimed that the “arc of history bends toward justice.” In this three-week mini-course, we will examine the fundamentals of justice, the many facets of justice, as well as inspiring moral visions of justice—too often thwarted by all-too-human moral myopia that has impeded progress “towards a more perfect union.”
Dr. James Muyskens and his wife Alda are members of Westminster Presbyterian. Prior to his recent retirement, Jim was University Professor and Interim President of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He has an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Michigan. He is the author of numerous books and articles in ethics and the philosophy of religion.

2021 Book Read and Dessert & Dialogue
As a psychologist, a sufferer of deep depression himself, and a father who lost his daughter to depression, Dr. Dan Hale brings deep and broad expertise to the challenges of mental illness. This January, the congregation is invited to read his book to learn about depression from various perspectives: sufferer, caregiver, parent, sibling, professional, and the church. We will form small groups, led by pastors and facilitators from WPC, to discuss the book together in early February (please sign up below to be placed in a small group). On Sunday, February 21, 2021, Dr. Hale will join us for our Virtual Dessert & Dialogue to highlight his work helping ourselves and others who suffer from these various brain disorders.
Dr. Dan Hale is special advisor to the President of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and Director of its Healthy Community Partnership. Dan has been a professor of Clinical Psychology, was named Mental Health Professional of the year by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and writes about building healthy communities through Medical-Religious partnerships.
Inspired by the Jesuit “Examen” model, this 30-minute online gathering led by the Rev. Jacob Bolton will provide space for both silence and sharing, interaction and solitude.
