80’s Songstress and Chart Topper Belinda Carlisle Is Coming To Cleveland

Cathedral Concerts Welcomes The Go-Go’s Former Lead Singer April 5 at 8PM

BelindaCarlisleCLEVELAND (November 3, 2015) – Cathedral Concerts, recognized by the Cleveland Plain Dealer as “one of the most unusual (and diverse) endeavors to hit the city in some time,” is presenting Belinda Carlisle – former lead singer of The Go-Go’s for an intimate performance at the gorgeous Trinity Cathedral on Tuesday, April 5 at 8:00 p.m.

Ms. Carlisle has had a wildly successful career dating back to The Go-Go’s debut album release in 1981. Beauty and the Beat, featuring the hits “We Got The Beat” and “Our Lips Are Sealed,” is considered one of the cornerstone albums of the “new wave” era.  The album broke The Go-Go’s wide and far and was responsible for paving the way for a host of other new American acts in the genre.  The album went to #1 in the USA and marked the first time an all-female band who wrote their own music and played their own instruments achieved a No. 1 album.

What needs to die in your life right now? Please bring a symbol, poem, or piece of art to share with the group as we celebrate the beauty and the sadness that are both a part of this time of year.

The Dean’s Forum: A Church Beyond Belief

The Rev. Bill Sachs
Sunday, Oct. 11, 2015

As we move beyond the “emergent” or “missional” church paradigm, pastors and other church leaders are discovering a new reality: people (especially younger generations) are coming to church not as believers, but finding a place to belong—with or without faith. This book describes the dilemma and the distractions that currently prevent congregations from being the place where that sense of belonging can unfold and guide newcomers in the discovery of faith.
