The Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Community Forum Distinguished Speaker Series began in 1997 in conjunction with our congregation’s 125th anniversary. The forums were endowed by the Anna and Herbert H. Middleton, Sr. Fund of our church Foundation and have been offered as a service to the community at large. More than 50 guests have helped us to gain fresh perspectives on dilemmas we face and see new options for ways to move forward.
The next Community Forum will be held on Mon., Oct. 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Our speaker will be Brooke Gladstone, co-anchor of "On the Media," with 1.6 million listeners and the author of The Trouble with Reality, which highlights her genius for making insightful, unexpected connections to help us understand what she calls - and what so many of can acknowledge having - "trouble with reality."
