December 13: Christianity, 'Tis the Season
This date marks the end of Rotary 100's five-part series on world religions. This program will discuss the major features of Christianity and why it claims to be different and apart from the other four major world religions, with its focus on a God who becomes man in a virgin birth and how this God-Man (Jesus) provides redemption and eternal life after death for all mankind via a crucifixion. The discussion will also focus on how Christianity explains the issues of man's suffering, man's purpose in life, and man's relationship with God's other creatures such as spiritual angels and physical animals and plants. Bring your questions about Christianity to this December meeting and get in the season to be jolly. Guests are most welcomed!
December 20: 'A Christmas Carol,' performed by Method Actors
Don't be a Scrooge. Come to this Holiday Program and meet method actors doing a vignette performance of "A Christmas Carol," by Charles Dickens. If you don't know what method acting is, you'll learn on this
date! Former Phoenix Rotary member Dan Shay will instruct the audience on what Method Acting is all about (think Stella Adler, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro), by showing the steps method actors go through to not get into the character, but become the character! Shay will perform a vignette or two of "A Christmas Carol" with local method actor Michael Lawler. As method actors will tell you, they don't act the part, they become the part. There's a big difference. Come and learn what that difference is and enjoy the last program of the year--the merry merry Holiday Program. FaLaLaLaLa. Guests most welcome, and Phoenix Rotary's Rubber Band is most likely to appear!
