October 18 - Heroes.... and the Rest of Us
Speaker: Bob Rhodes
Joseph Campbell famously described all religious movements as having a hero with di-vine or magical credentials, who successfully confronts evil and suffering in his lifetime, suffers, and returns to a heavenly home. But where do we ordinary people fit in? Are we spectators? Are we dependent on heroes to solve our problems?
