January Series

The award-winning January Series of Calvin College is coming to Seattle. From Jan. 7 through Jan. 27, 2015, First Christian Reformed Church & Shoreline Christian School will be one of 45 remote webcast locations worldwide to broadcast one of the nation’s leading lecture and cultural arts series.

The 2015 edition features a solid lineup of speakers including Richard M. Daley, the longest-serving mayor in Chicago’s history; Tova Friedman, one of the youngest known survivors of the Auschwitz concentration camp; and Bryan Stevenson, who is considered by archbishop Desmond Tutu to be “America’s young Nelson Mandela,” to name a few.

The experts will be discussing a wide range of today’s most relevant topics, including mass incarceration, the persecution of Christians around the world, the obesity epidemic in America and the effect technology usage has on people’s spiritual and social lives.

The January Series lectures will be video streamed live at First Christian Reformed Church & Shoreline Christian School from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. PST Monday through Friday. The lectures are free and open to the public.
