Standing the Test of Time

We live in a time of constant change. Our world is full of new technologies, innovations and fads that impact the way we communicate, engage in entertainment, appreciate art and care for ourselves and others.

But what in our world resists change? Why have these things endured while others pass by? Join us this fall as we talk about the traditions, institutions, natural wonders and artifacts that have stood the test of time.
