Best Lecture and Breakfast Series : The Bible’s Own Advice Book

Supported by Mary Lamm in loving memory of her husband Joseph, this series features compelling lecturers who offer presentations they love to give, and participants hear the best of the best.

There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens. These words from the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Hebrew Scriptures have fascinated Jewish, Christian, and secular readers for centuries. The book teaches, among other things, the importance of simple joys such as food and companionship. The best news of all is that by coming to this program you will already have begun to live according to the Bible’s teachings!
