Award-winning January Series lectures return to be live-streamed at First Christian Reformed Church, 1814 S. Emerson St., weekdays, Jan. 7-27, 10:30-11:30a.m., via  live internet video feed from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich., Free and open to the public, series features a solid lineup of speakers, including: Richard M. Daley, longest-serving mayor in Chicago’s history; Tova Friedman, among youngest known survivors of Auschwitz concentration camp; and Bryan Stevenson, considered by archbishop Desmond Tutu to be “America’s young Nelson Mandela.”

     With Christian perspectives on a wide range of topics, many of the talks are woven within a loose theme of the power of story, and global security: mass incarceration; persecution of Christians around the world; the obesity epidemic in America; and effects technology usage has on people’s spiritual and social lives.
