In “the spirit of Chautauqua” the West Bloomfield United Church of Christ will honor its two-century heritage of intellectual vitality and public entertainment by offering its 2nd annual “Day of Curiosity,” according to Laurel Nelson, event chair.

“We’re celebrating human curiosity and open minds,” Nelson said. On Saturday, February 3, the church will host a series of expert one-hour presentations on an eclectic range of subjects including a panel on youth mental health, back yard maple sugaring, cybersecurity, root causes of racism, artificial intelligence, Feldenkrais, methods of deep discernment, and a demonstration tour of the church’s 1875 Davis organ, conducted by a virtuoso Eastman School of Music graduate, Attendees can choose up to four sessions.

“Shake off the mid-winter blahs and come experience a fascinating day of high-level adult education,” Nelson invited. “Nearly 100 people came last year and had a blast.”

The WBUCC Day of Curiosity event is secular, non-denominational and open to everyone. “The day isn’t about religion, it’s about experiencing new ideas, cracking open your mind, having fun, and maybe making a new friend or two,” Nelson said.

The donation-optional one-day event runs 8:30AM to 4PM and is open to the public. Lunch provided. Pre-registration is encouraged at The church is located at 9035 Routes 5&20 at the only traffic light in West Bloomfield.
