Special Wednesday night event on August 5th
A NIGHT OF MUSIC AND CONVERSATION WITH KAREN DRUCKER

Karen Drucker is one of the leaders in the field of presence and spirit in her music. Very few people can say that they have been a singing mermaid, a singing casket, and was literally “elevator music” when she was hired to sing and play piano in a moving elevator. Meet Karen Drucker.

She has recorded 15 CDs of her original inspirational music, and is the author of an inspirational book, “Let Go of the Shore: Stories and Songs That Set the Spirit Free.” Among her many accomplishments, she has been a professional comedienne, led her own band for corporate events, and has been the music director of New Thought Churches, as well as music director and “music weaver” for many spiritual conferences and retreats.

Karen Drucker has been called “a master of communicating presence and spirituality through music.” She loves making music, making a difference, and touching hearts. This will be a special night of Karen’s music along with a conversation about who she is and how she does what she does. It will be filled with heart and spiritual fun.

Diane Lynn Weible grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, attended Drury College in Springfield, Missouri, and Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis. She was ordained by the St. Louis Association of the former Missouri Conference of the United Church of Christ in May 1991. In July of that year she and her husband Tim became missionaries with the United Church Board for World Ministries and were assigned to Tono, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. They served there for 12 years, Diane serving as the Associate Pastor of the Tono Church and also as a staff of the church-related kindergarten, then its Vice Principal and later as the Principal. In 2004 the Weibles moved to Hawaii where Tim became the Pastor and Diane the Associate Pastor at Kailua Christian Church (UCC). Two years later Diane became the Minister of Communication of the Hawaii Conference of the United Church of Christ. Since 2008 she has been serving as the Conference’s Associate Conference Minister. “Diane has been involved in many diverse communities, which has strengthened her capacity for cross-cultural work within the conference.
