August 2021

FRIDAY August 20 – ZOOmfari – A Virtual tour of the Honolulu Zoo – Savanna I: wild dogs, rhino, hooded vulture, red-crested turaco, chimpanzee, ground hornbill, stork, meerkats, fennec fox, baboon, lion, porcupine
Plus THE SEARCH – EP 1: WHAT DO YOU SEEK? In our very first episode, we open hearts with a look at the question “what do you seek?” What is that deep longing in our hearts all about? We’re all living for something, and we all strive for that something out there that is ultimately going to make us happy. But what is it? For some, this question is on their minds every day. For others, life goes by in a flash without even asking the question. Powerful video and small group discussion/sharing circles.

FRIDAY August 27 – ZOOmfari – A Virtual tour of the Honolulu Zoo – 
Savanna II: cheetah, zebra, giraffe, bongo, crane, pelican, sacred ibis, flamingo, aardvark, warthog, hippo, penguin
Plus THE SEARCH – EP 2: WHO ARE YOU? To find clues as to the meaning of life, we first look at ourselves. Who am I? Is there more to me than matter? Is there more to us than meets the eye? We talk with neuroscientists, psychologists, composers, and artists to examine the mystery of you. If you’re just a body, then satisfaction in life should come from tending to simple bodily needs. Fill your stomach, be comfortable. But there’s more to you then that. You are material and immaterial. And that unseen part of you craves for so much more. As C. S. Lewis once said, “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” Powerful video and small group discussion/sharing circles.
