Ekklesia Project – Sunday, Sep 24th at our Community Meeting!

Greetings QACers & Friends of QAC!

Dr. Kelly Johnson, a faculty member at UD in Religious Studies, will join us for our QAC meeting, Sep 24th, to talk about the Ekklesia Project (http://www.ekklesiaproject.org/), an ecumenical gathering of lay people, clergy, and academics to think together about the challenges of being church in the US, especially around consumerism, racism, and militarism. The EP consists of numerous nation-wide congregations, mostly protestant and house churches, who are really committed and creative in their practice of being the Body of Christ in their location.

Kelly is happy to talk to us about this project, and she was delighted to hear about our community and the gifts we have as a Marianist community and Parish.  She’d love to spark a new conversation between our community and other Marianist communities in Dayton and various Ekklesia Project congregations to find connections, build on gifts, and deepen community spirit. Also, she will be talking to us about the board of Ekklesia Project possibly having their annual meeting here in Dayton in the winter. She thinks that will be a great time to bring our community and other Marianists into their mission and work.

Kelly Bohrer!

OCTOBER SENIORS’ CORNER (Chuck Bauer):

September – The Festival Month, is coming to a close, but there are still many festivals in October. One of the largest is the Waynesville Sauerkraut Festival (Oct 14th-15th). Their website indicated that 300,000 attended last year. This is by far one of the largest festivals in south western Ohio and possibly the state. Google www.OhioFestival.net for a complete listing of Ohio festivals.

I am presently, with the assistance of Lois Bigler, assembling brochures on, most and possibly all, the local amateur theater groups in the Dayton area. These will be assembled on my activity boards. Extra brochures will be placed on the table next to the boards. Wright State Players is nearly professional, The Dayton Playhouse (Wegerzyn Metropark) is a close second. But all of the groups produce very excellent stage plays. You will not go wrong attending any of their productions. With the aid of the brochure collection you can select the plays or musicals that ticket your fancy. The board will include ticket contact information.

For musical fall winter entertainment Wright State (free) and Sinclair (nominal fee) have very good music department activities. The best way to obtain their calendar of events is to use the internet Google “Wright.edu music calendar” and “Sinclair Music Performances.”

For those that enjoy the fall foliage there are excellent easy hiking, or motor, or bike trails in the Dayton area. It will be like you will be going through tunnels of gold. I will work to get a Fall outing together for near the end of October. Several years ago we had a luncheon in Waynesville and a motor trip around Caesar Creek Park.
