Aspen Public Radio: Light Matters
December 23, 2016
It is no accident that Chanukah and Christmas, both festivals of light, fall in the darkest season of the year. In the spirit of both holidays, Rabbi David Segal of the Aspen Jewish Congregation explores what it means to be a source of light in dark moments.
Segal spoke with three community leaders: Allison Daily, Director of Pathfinders; Charley Hill, Lead Pastor of the Orchard Church in Carbondale; and Alejandra Magaña, Director of Lifelong Learning for the Valley Settlement Project. Each guest shares a uniquely moving and inspiring perspective on the meaning of the holiday season.

Aspen Times Weekly: Finding Unity
November 17, 2016
EVERY YEAR AROUND THIS TIME, we give thanks — for the year we’ve had and the one that lies ahead. This year, with a contentious election behind us and a bit of uncertainty about what the future holds, we asked our valley’s spiritual leaders for their thoughts about giving thanks and the idea of community unity. We hope you find their words inspiring.
