OPIOID CRISIS: THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME FOR DRUG ADDICTION

 

 

 

CASEY GUET

11:45 am – 1:00 pm
FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
310 Fifth Street SE, Cedar Rapids

In some families, drugs are celebrated, not abhorred. Casey Guet’s home life was like that. At the October Intersections, Casey will share the difficulties of quitting drugs when it also meant quitting family and friends. She’ll focus on drug use in West Virginia not as a reflection of people’s will power, but as a reflection on how people cope with mutual suffering and hopelessness. Through her personal stories, Casey reveals how her faith helped heal her and renew her hope in humanity.

Casey Guet grew up in the small town of Lewisburg, West Virginia. She earned her undergraduate degree in Literature at West Virginia State University and completed her graduate education at Andover Newton Theological School with a Masters of Divinity in December of 2016. Casey is currently working toward becoming a member in discernment with the United Church of Christ.

lunchonusWe are rewarding you for bringing guests to Intersections! All you need to do is RSVP by the Tuesday prior to the luncheon as you’ve always done and include the name(s) of the person(s) you’ve invited to attend. Once five people new to Intersections have attended an educational luncheon upon your invitation, we’ll waive your fee for one Intersections (a $10 value)! And another perk: each guest dines at no cost on their first visit! The best part is, we’ll keep track of your guest attendance list for you, so no punch cards to keep track of or tickets to remember! Please feel free to contact Kristin with any questions: 515.279.8715 or crintersections@interfaithallianceiowa.org. Who are you going to invite?

Who should be attending Intersections?
We want Intersections to reach more people in the greater Cedar Rapids area. And, we need your help! Please consider inviting a couple of friends (or more!) to attend Intersections with you. Make sure you give us their names when you make your reservation. Thank you for your help!

“LIKE” Intersections on Facebook!
You can now find Intersections on Facebook. We will have updated info on speakers for the coming months. Reservations will still need to be made by email or phone.
