Littner Memorial Lecture: Dr. Kenneth J. Doka @ Moravian Central Church
Apr 24 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

 

The Dr. and Mrs. Max Littner Memorial Lecture Series for Bereavement

 

DR. KENNETH J. DOKA

Kenneth J. Doka, PhD

The Dr. and Mrs. Max Littner Memorial Lecture Series for Bereavement was founded for the purpose of raising consciousness around the big issues of life, living meaningfully and well, and sparking necessary conversations with loved ones about issues that are truly matters of life and death. The annual lecture features prominent guests who discuss the importance of mind and body in healing and care, and ways you can cultivate hope, take action and be more responsible for your medical decisions.
DR. KENNETH J. DOKA

Professor of Gerontology at the Graduate School of The College of New Rochelle and Senior Consultant to the Hospice Foundation of America.

GRIEF IS A JOURNEY

There is no “one-size-fits-all” way to cope with loss. The vital bonds that we form with those we love in life continue long after death—in very different ways. Dr. Doka overturns the prevailing, often judgmental, ideas about grief, and replace them with a hopeful, inclusive, personalized, and research-backed approach. New science and studies behind Dr. Doka’s teaching upend the dominant but incorrect view that grief proceeds by stages.

Dr. Doka also explains how to cope with disenfranchised grief—the types of loss that are not so readily recognized or supported by society. These include the death of ex-spouses, as well as non-fatal losses like divorce, the end of a friendship, losing a job, or infertility. In addition, Dr. Doka considers losses that might be stigmatized, including death by suicide or from disease, or self-destructive behaviors like smoking or alcoholism.

“The Organic Profit is a great read for anyone interested in knowing how the Rodales and Prevention Magazine helped bring organic foods from cult to mainstream and from pesticide-free produce to environmentally conscious lifestyles. This is a biography, social history, and contemporary politics, all viewed through the lens of the fastest growing segment of the US food system.”―Marion Nestle, author of What to Eat

Tamar Bair's Bethlehem The Colonial Industrial Quarter Book Signing @ Moravian Book Shop | Bethlehem | Pennsylvania | United States

In the 1960’s, the city of Bethlehem was rushing into the future. On the south side, Lehigh University razed several blocks north of Packer Avenue to expand its campus. On the north side, a modern City Center rose in 1967’s where a neighborhood – family homes, stores, and churches – had been. Tamar Bair, a local resident of New Street captured it all during her walks. Many decades later, Mark and John followed in Tamar’s footsteps, training their camera lens upon the very same subjects.

Her latest book features Kaylee who loves pulling pranks: from dropping water balloons on passers-by to even tricking Santa Claus, she’s a prize-winning prankster!
But is she the Princess of Pranks? No! That title is held by none other than the ToothFairy. Find out what happens when Kaylee loses a tooth and tries to prank the ToothFairy!
