New Adult Ed:
Increase Your Impact
Sun Jan 12 & Feb 9
Leader: Rebecca Wear Robinson
Competition for changing attitudes and behaviors is intense. The average attention span is only 3 seconds. Most of us are pulled in so many directions that the hamster wheel of living is locked into a permanent spin cycle. Even when we want to do good - in our church, in our community, in the world - the obstacles are overwhelming. Even the best ideas and most pressing problems can’t keep people engaged, much less change individuals and our society for the better.
There is another way.
Using techniques pulled from marketing and social psychology, we will learn how to create positive, sustainable and cost-effective change out of the programs and organizations that you value.
Bring a notebook and pen.
Optional, but if you’d like a better understanding of what we’ll be covering, download and read Chapter 1 for free http://www.ignitechanges.com/buy-the-book

Julian Chin uses the instrumentation and idioms of the jazz piano trio while focusing on contemporary repertoire. Fans of modern popular song will find new ways of hearing their favorites, while devotees of classic jazz will enjoy hearing improvisations on fresh melodies that dont usually find their way into jazz clubs. Through this music, the trio communicates a multitude of narratives, personal, cultural, and national, using our shared language of song.
