Couldn't Care Less"
I reflect on my quest for a deeper emotional and spiritual life, I
realize that I have a complicated relationship with apathy. At
different points in my life, apathy has been a goal, it’s been an
obstacle, and, most recently, it’s been a useful resource. For
something that literally means “a lack of care or concern,” I seem to
have a lot of feelings about it. So, who cares about apathy? I do! And
I’ll tell you why on Jan 12. Moderator

Little Co-op with a Big Impact”
Jennifer Johnston has served on the Silver City Food Co-op board for
more than five years. She has fulfilled many roles, including
president, vice president, secretary, and chairperson of various
committees. The Food Co-op has been in Grant County for more than 40
years and its vision is "to promote the inherently healthy relationship
between food, community and nature." Jennifer and another board member
will cover some of the history of the Co-op, its impact on the
community, and future goals, including current progress toward opening
a larger store. She will also review why the food cooperative committed
to a shared governance structure including the benefits and pitfalls of
consensus-style, member-owned businesses. Moderator Ron
"Memory and Desire"
Galera is a Brazilian artist who has drawn since childhood. He is
currently the artist-in-residence at Western New Mexico University.
During doctoral research in anthropology in Mexico, his artistic
pursuits intensified. He has participated in collective and individual
exhibits in Brazil, the US, and Mexico. He is currently employing the
theme of personal and collective memories for his creations. Galera
will speak of “memory and desire” . . . how do our community’s
memories, both spoken and unspoken, shape our desires for our future?
After the service, all participants will be encouraged to create a
small clay object symbolizing important memories, to compose a large
piece for a community art installation. Moderator
