This past Tuesday, we gathered together and honored our volunteers and their service to Richmond’s older community. Enjoy the pictures (thank you Susan B.!). If you click on them, they will get larger. Thank you again to all of our volunteers, who are drivers, transportation coordinators, handy men & women, friendly callers, Open University instructors and support crew, board and committee members.
You ARE The Shepherd’s Center!
There have been a few changes to the schedule on Mondays at St. Luke:
The Lunch Speaker on Monday, October 3, at 12:30 at St. Luke Lutheran, will be Dr. David Mark Cooper, author of Mapping Your Adventure: Discovering Integrity in a Life Review. Dr. Cooper is a respected therapist and educator, who lives in Richmond. He takes the place of Randy Fitzgerald, well-known columnist and humorist, who will be unable to speak because of illness. Dr. Cooper will bring copies of his book, should his listeners wish to purchase it at the end of his talk.
Ellis West will present The Constitution’s Ban on Religious Tests for Holding Public Office on October 17 and Andrew Crislip will conclude his presentation with The Lost Gospels II on October 24. Both are at 11:00 a.m.
Shantaram Talegaonkar will present Seven Delhis: The Evolution of a City Over One Thousand Years on October 24 and Barbara Goehle will present The Amazing Victoria Falls on November 7. Both are at 9:45.
AND, because that is a mouthful, click here for a new first page for your schedule!
Get ready to expand your minds!
Open University starts next Monday, September 19th, at St. Luke Lutheran and the following Thursday, September 22nd, at First Presbyterian. A whole host of courses, lectures and speakers to choose from for one low price. Tell your friends and neighbors to join us – they don’t know what they are missing!
And don’t forget Lunch and Life at St. Mary Catholic beginning Wednesday, September 21st. Free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
So sorry – This is the truly correct correction!

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the warmer weather while it’s here!
It’s time to get out of the house! Open University will meet as scheduled, Thursday, January 28, at First Presbyterian Church. When Richmond City Schools have a delayed opening, we meet as we normally do. Classes are 9:45, 11:00, 12:15 and 1:30.
We also have a change of lunch speakers at 12:30. Elizabeth Seydel Morgan, prize-winning poet and author of Spans, will be unable to speak at First Presbyterian Church on Thursday, Jan. 28. She will be rescheduled for the fall. In her place is Paul Sacra, whose topic is “”The Battle of Cedar Mountain: Stonewall Jackson’s Last Fight as an Independent Commander.”
We hope to see everyone who can make it safely!
Is everyone ready for another Open University Session!? We begin our Winter courses next Monday, January 18th. Even though the nation celebrates the life of Dr. King and many businesses are closed on Monday, the Open University WILL MEET. We are not closed for MLK day.
Therefore, we hope to see everyone at Luke Lutheran on January 18th, at St. Mary Catholic on January 20th, and at First Presbyterian on January 21st!
