Claire Porter takes us on a tour of Bug Land. Accompanying her are a few marvelous scientific phenomenon and some sublime poetic musings.
Claire is married to Jon, lives in Lancaster City and is Mom to a son named Omri.
She teaches literature among home-school teenages and enjoys reading, painting and collecting relics of creation.
She even owns a preserved (and dead) cicada, caught in the act of emerging from his shell. That was worth the price of admission.

Phillip Johnston: Bored Yet Busy: Free Time, The Winter Blues and Lack of Purpose

As this Podcast goes to Air, the Northeast is burdened once again by a double whammy of the white stuff. Life's like that sometimes, even in the warmer months.
What we need, according to theology student and sometimes L'Abri Fellowship worker Phillip Johnston, is to find a new way of DOING and SEEING.
Listen now to hear what he means. You'll be glad you did. Did you hear that? I said glad!
Bumper music by Lancaster-based band The Innocence Mission, Amid the Winter's Snow.

Bill Dawson: Serving Mammon; Financial Feudalism and Collapsing Democracy

Strap on your jet packs and get ready to exit Planet Earth, because this talk will make you say,
"It's hopeless!"
Well, it's not that bad, really.
But you really ought to know how money is made, hoarded and used these days, not for progress or justice, but for enforcing a type of feudalism on the most of us.
What can be done? Go to www.therowhouse.org, and ask for our journal, The Front Porch.
In it, Bill follows up this dire diagnosis with some thoughtful remedies for a possible prognosis (and you thought THAT sentence was a mouthful! Wait'll you see his article).
Great job, Bill. Benjamin is smiling.

Chloe, our first and most famous Resident Intern, delivered a thoughtful, thorough and engaging talk on the life of Chris McCandless.
Maybe you've seen the film by Sean Penn based on Chris's story, or you've read the book by Jon Krakauer. Or, even if you haven't, maybe you've wondered whether or not "getting back to nature" will make you a better person.
If so, this talk is for you.
To take part in our lively Q&A, you'll have to come to a live forum. We hope to see you soon!

Our Founder & Director, Tom Becker, takes us on a mini-tour of human oddities, starting with Lady Gaga. Turns out LG is quite normal...and smart. She's found a way into the hearts of millions of fans who feel they are different, just like everyone else!
Meanwhile, real human oddities (what Tom calls rarities) tell us even more about what it means to be human, both in our pain and in our worth.
Listen for brief stories from the lives of Joseph "The Elephant Man" Merrick, Nick Vujicic (lifewithoutlimbs.org) and the conjoined Jensen twins from Minnesota.
Recorded 13Sept2013 at The Row House Forum, Lancaster, PA

The Chen Brothers: Embracing a Nomadic Approach to Community

Joshua and Jeremy Chen co-lead this forum. The Chens graduated from Veritas Academy in 2007. Jeremy then studied at Princeton University where he was transformed in his understanding of the possibility of true community through leadership in Manna Fellowship. Joshua attended Virginia Tech and struggled to find the same kind of spiritual family on campus or in churches. Both have much to say from their experiences and astute theological reflections on culture and history. Currently Jeremy is studying for his Master of Divinity at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, and Josh is furthering his calling to engineering at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Graham comes to The Row House Forum once more to deliver a top shelf paper and lecture. Normally a Liberal Arts, Theology and Writing instructor at Veritas Academy, Mr. Dennis loves people, ideas and culture. He's a family man who lives here in Lancaster County and is a repository of knowledge on all things European, Medieval and Heavy Metal (though that last category is fading in prominence, as is his mullet).
Get ready to take notes. Sorry for the garbled vocals at times; my mic rubbed against his sweater.

Phillip Johnston, Why Introverts Need Extraverts

"Leave Me Alone (But Not For Too Long!): Why Introverts Need Extraverts."

For the first time in forum history, host Tom Becker did NOT have to corral the audience into the gathering space. Instead, 20 eager participants were already seated, ready to listen and not chatting.

That's what happens when we tap into that rarely-talked-about trait called introversion. Interestingly, a bunch of extraverts also showed up, rounding out the crowd to about 40 people.

Hear now the recording of Phillip's outstanding talk wherein he entertains while he informs. His theological analysis of relational dynamics toward the end is simple yet sophisticated. Wait for it!
