The C.G. Jung Association’s spring workshop is: “The Emerging Image of God.” On March 8, Dr. Jerry Wright, D. Min., pastoral counselor, Jungian analyst will lecture and lead discussions on the challenge of evolving an image God that is large enough to address the complexities and dangers of modern civilization. To avoid meaninglessness and anxiety in contemporary life we need a religious attitude that incorporates the metaphorical, sacramental, historical, and therapeutic aspects of spiritual life.
Dr. Wright will lecture, reviewing the changing God images already found in the Western experience and examining which images still are valuable. There will be plenty of time to discuss the potential of an enlarged paradigm of God, befitting this millennium. The workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. and will last until 1:30 p.m. Snacks and beverages are provided. We will meet at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 33 West Dixon, Oakwood. The cost is $45 at the door and $35 if prepaid by March 6 to: Jung Assocation, 6399 Sweet Briar Lane, Dayton, Oh. 45459.

A bus trip to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Samara House in West Lafayette, Indiana will take place on Saturday, April 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
It was 1950 when John and Kay Christian decided to build a home near Purdue University where they worked. John was a pharmaceutical chemistry professor and Kay was the social director for the university. After much debate they decided that Frank Lloyd Wright was the architect to design their new home. Not sure how to proceed, John telephoned Wright’s office and to his surprise reached Wright himself. Over the next six years the master architect and his client worked together on the realization of a Usonian dream – Samara House.
Dr. Christian continues to live in the home and manages the day-by-day operation of the property. His recollections of the project and Frank Lloyd Wright will make the tour of Samara an unforgettable experience.
Cost: $60 for the Members of The Westcott House Foundation; $80 for Non-Members (Fee includes bus transportation and admission tickets to SAMARA)
