Topic: Truth, Half-Truth, and Something but the Truth

We live in an era and a country flooded with “disinformation.” So claims lawyer, news commentator, and author Barbara McQuade, in her recent book, Attack from Within. It’s sobering and unnerving to realize how many can be convinced of that which is patently false. And tragically, we have witnessed at times in history what Voltaire said two and a half centuries ago — when people believe absurdities, they can commit atrocities. Ours is a truth-seeking religious movement. How do we determine if a statement is true, and what are the moral imperatives in pursuing truth?

Nancy Kennedy

Speaker – Nancy Kennedy


Nancy Kennedy is a Christian who seeks to share stories of faith, hope and grace through her writing. She has been writing for the Citrus County Chronicle since 1992 as a feature writer and columnist. Her column, Grace Notes, also appears in about a dozen newspapers throughout the Southeast. She likes cats, cute and comfortable shoes, coconut cake and reading psychological thrillers. She’s also a member of Seven Rivers Church in Lecanto.

Topic: Mercy Changes Everything

Mercy is powerful and life changing. The most merciful people, the ones who show the most compassion and kindness to others, are often the ones who were broken and who were shown mercy. Mercy begets mercy, and the world needs more of it. Nancy Kennedy’s perspective on mercy is through the lens of Christianity. Jesus told his followers, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy.” Christianity also teaches that mercy comes from God.
