Please join us as Brook Nam talks about modern Korean history and its relationship with the U.S. from 1945 and to the present time. It will talk about how the talk of nuclear war with the North Korea became such a casual threat and how dangerous it is for the U.S. president to have such unlimited war power. We will get a chance to learn what we can do to bring congressional authority and responsibility to rein in the abuse of the presidential power that will bring nothing but a irrecoverable destruction to the whole world.

"Through the Lens of the Holocaust:
Theodicy and the Problem of Evil"
Most people alive in this country understand the horror of the Holocaust and that it happened because the leadership of Germany in the years up to and during World War II considered Jews to be subhumans who were responsible for Germany's ills and needed to be exterminated. The country went along and the SS carried out the extermination of six million Jews. But, what if you had been a Jew, how could the Holocaust have challenged your faith, especially if you had lived through it? Would you have doubted God or decided there was no God? And, if you continued to believe in God, how would you have dealt with the problem called theodicy: that a supposedly, all-powerful good God, could allow such evil to exist in the world? The presentation will include Holocaust poetry and group discussion.
