Bach Society teams up with Ars Lyrica for a performance of Jonah and Esther, two oratorios, at Zilkha Hall, Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Jonah was the first and only oratorio written in the Americas in the 18th century. Esther was Handel’s first attempt to write an oratorio in English. Both fascinating and important events! Join Bach Society for this most unusual evening. Tickets are available through the Zilkha website; however, right now it is going through marketing improvements with its SEO company.

What will your funeral/memorial service look like? Do you wish loved ones would share thoughts about their own funerals?
Well, here’s your chance. All are welcome to Ashes to Ashes, an evening of conversation and funeral planning.

In prayer we humans orient toward God: we direct praise, lament, questions, petitions and thanksgiving to God who made us, redeemed us and sustains us. In prayer we are in conversation with God and open for God to be in conversation with us, in personal prayer as well as in group and worship settings. In February Sunday Forum will learn about prayer practices in four faith traditions, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim and Jewish. The presenters will share practices and content, and discuss how prayer shapes and supports daily living and ethical decision making.
