    Whether the issue of the day on Twitter, Facebook, or cable news is our sexuality, political divides, or the perceived conflict between faith and science, today's media pushes each one of us into a frustrating clash between two opposing sides. Polarizing, us-against-them discussions divide us and distract us from thinking clearly and communicating lovingly with others. Come join other young adults @ CHUM in conversation and relationship building. Registration for this class is appreciated and can be done online at or in the office.

    Have you ever wondered how and why prisons have become money making enterprises? Are you in disagreement with prison policy that profits from incarceration, but not quite sure how our society embraced private prisons as a solution? Kansas is beginning to participate in housing prisons privately, and this decision is becoming a bigger conversation in our community. In this class we will read and discuss "Punishment for Sale: Private Prisons, Big Business, and the Incarceration Binge" by Donna Selman and Paul Leighton. You will gain insight on the historical and current development of private prison industry. You must purchase the book for this class. Registration for this class is appreciated and can be done online at or in the office. Facilitator Kelli Grant, Room #201
