Seminar Series:
Introduction to the year 2002 program


Welcome to our Institute for Spiritual Studies program of seminars for 2002.

Another stimulating and varied set of offerings is placed before you. Each in its own way addresses the objectives of growth in spiritual life that we all seek.

Some of our speakers may be new to you. Others, like Archbishop Rowan Williams of Wales, who is world-renowned, have been with us before. There is certain to be something of interest here for you. As well, please spread the word to friends and associates, or just encourage them to join us. All are welcome.

My own grateful thanks go to our hard-working committee and particularly to Jan Gordon-Clark, our Chairman. She continues to do a most remarkable job. We appreciate too the very helpful and encouraging response from so many of you to our mid-year survey. The results will be put to good use.

So, thank you for your interest and your continuing participation in 2002.
