Four Lethbridge speakers will help listeners find “hope in troubled times.”

Erin Phillips, chaplain with the city’s Ecumenical Campus Ministry, has announced this year’s speakers. The no-charge series, now known as the Cade Community Lectures, is co-sponsored by the Lethbridge Public Library and the president’s office at the University of Lethbridge.

Phillips will launch the series on Jan. 15 with a reflection on the continuing appeal of “Man’s Sense for Meaning,” by Victor Frankl. Open to all interested, sessions will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the downtown library’s Theatre Gallery.

Jane Harrowing, a professor in the health sciences faculty at the U of L, will speak Jan. 29 on “Dancing Under the Net: Circles, Celebrations and Community.”

On Feb. 5, U of L art gallery curator Josephine Mills will explain “Art + People = Activism: Understanding the World Around Us.”

The series will close Feb. 12 with “Stand Up Alchemy: Transforming Personal Grief into Public Laughter.” The presenter will be Mav Adecer, a stand-up comic and editor of the student publication The Meliorist.

The city’s Ecumenical Campus Ministry, serving the university and Lethbridge College, is sponsored by a number of Protestant congregations across the city.
