What’s happening – religion

Provided to the Tribune

The non-denominational Alpha course will be offered free to anyone interested in learning more about Christianity.

The Tuesday-night Alpha meetings will begin at 6 p.m. Sept. 26 with dinner, followed by a video and discussion that begins at 7 p.m. and ends promptly at 8:30 p.m. The entire program runs for 12 weeks. After the first dinner, which is free, subsequent meals will cost $4.

Each Tuesday evening’s video will provide a framework for discussion but all questions are welcome.

Alpha meetings will be held at Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church, 2733 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Call the church office at (530) 544-3757 and speak to Peggy if you have any questions about the program. Child care will be available if requested. Reservations are appreciated, but not required.

Sing along with Unity guest

Unity at the Lake will host Kathy Zavada at two events on Sunday, Sept. 17, at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

She will be the guest speaker at the 10 a.m. service and will conduct a chanting workshop from 1 to 3 p.m.

A donation of $15 to $20 is suggested.

The focus of the afternoon workshop is to cultivate the spirit of love and kindness, to open to joy and bring healing and inspiration to all.

Zavada is an adult contemporary singer, pianist and songwriter whose music is positive, uplifting and inspirational. Her CDs have sold tens of thousands of copies and been featured in the top ten best lists on Amazon.com.

She has just released a new album co-produced by Windham Hill artist Billy Oskay, who has produced three gold records.

Zavada will share music from this new release titled “Return to Love” as well as music from her numerous other CDs and invite the audience to sing along.

The songs are easy to learn and deeply inspiring to sing. Song sheets will be provided for participants.
