Comparative Religion: “Do We Have Free Will?”: This new course, on Mondays at 3:00 consists of video lectures from different sources and opportunities for class discussion. Most of us think that we are free agents capable of exercising what we perceive as the freedom to decide, to act, to plan, to behave according to our values, etc. This view however is currently challenged by many philosophers, scientists, and other thinkers who maintain that our actions are determined by the laws of physics and influences from our past, and therefore the perception of having free will is only an illusion. The absence of free will poses ethical problems of moral responsibility, and theological problems as well. (Limit 15).

The next exhibit of photographs made by Fairhaven residents will be displayed on Monday, April 12. The subject/theme/challenge for April is “National Parks.” As with all the suggested subjects, we hope to spark your creative juices to interpret the subject in your own way.
To facilitate the process of hanging the prints, it is important to have all entries available before they go on the wall. For that reason, it has been the practice that photos are brought to the display area on Sunday evening. They can be placed on the floor along the wall outside the Fitness Room. Complete guidelines for displaying photos are posted on the Gallery wall.
To assist in planning for coming displays, here are the subjects:
April – National Parks
May – Recreation – doing what you enjoy…
June – My best picture… in association with the Ruth Dodge Art Gallery
Please suggest themes! We are gathering ideas for themes for the year beginning in September 2021. If you have an idea for a monthly theme, please let me know. Send Don Stevens-Rayburn an email at don@stevray.net or call and leave a message (ext. 3084). The only restriction is that the theme should not be too specific.

Acts Legacy Foundation News/Contributions: If you made a contribution to support Fairhaven in 2020 – including to Spiritual Life – you should have recently received a letter signed by Richard Winter. This letter is a cumulative summary of your contributions for the year for your tax records. Please note that contributions made in the form of charitable gift annuities, securities, IRA qualified charitable distributions, donor-advised funds, and in-kind gifts are receipted separately from the letter you received.

Scams: We have been letting you know of the latest scams for the past few months. We cannot stress enough the importance of not giving out any personal information to anyone over the phone, through email, or by mail. Using some issue that the scammer believes you will respond to, he/she may ask for social security number or credit card number, etc. They will try to build your trust. If they get your social security number, they can open accounts in their name and possibly steal your identity. Be suspicious of these calls.
