Third Sundays at the Free Congregation - Free Thought Forums

Sunday, August 20, 2017, 10:10 a.m., Rudolph Steiner and the founding of Waldorf Schools, Cherity Foat.  In the talk, Cherity Foat will be covering the biography of Steiner from his humble beginnings through scientific training and esoteric awakenings to the founding of the Anthroposophical Society. Then as a witness to the destruction of World War I, Steiner and many members of the Society, wanted to find practical applications for their spiritual impulse. The flourishing of activity after the war produced powerful reforming forces still active today around the world: Waldorf Schools, Biodynamic Agriculture, the Camphill Movement, Anthroposophical Medicine, Ethical Investing/Banking as well as a wellspring of the arts, including a new form of art Eurythmy.

Free Thought Forums continue the legacy of free and open inquiry established more than 150 years ago by the founders of the Free Congregation. As their Sunday programs did then, today’s Forums express our commitment to free thought in religion, guided by reason, and inspired by the “books of Nature and World History.”

Third Sunday Free Thought Forums begin at 10:10 am with an invitation to be seated, followed by brief announcements. The guest presenter then begins, and speaks for 25-30 minutes. Open comments and questions follow the presentation. We usually adjourn by 11:20.

Please join us; you are always welcome!
