Friday October 6, 8-9:30p

St Luke’s UMC Sanctuary (100 W 86th St)

Carrie Newcomer, Parker J. Palmer & Gary Walters have come together to create an evening concert designed to encourage a new kind of conversation – one that bridges our divides and helps restore civic community.  In a time when it is easy to feel overwhelmed, discouraged or cynical, Carrie and Parker offer a journey of mind and spirit characterized by thoughtfulness, realism, vulnerability, good humor and hope.

Parker Palmer is a writer, teacher and activist whose work speaks deeply to people in many walks of life.  He is founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal. Carrie Newcomer is described as a “prairie mystic” because so many of her songs are based right here in Indiana and are deeply rooted in her Quaker faith.  Gary Walters, a performing and recording musician, composer, arranger and Butler University educator will accompany Carrie.  He has performed and recorded with many o Central Indiana’s finest musicians, including the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
