    The Sunday afternoon forum, which will be held in Waveland Hall, will begin with a Cuban lunch, catered by Ceviche restaurant from the East Village, at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $10 per person and reservations should be made with the church office. The program, which is free, begins at 1:20 p.m. At 3:15 p.m., the day’s speakers will join together for a panel discussion. The group will conduct a Q&A session with the audience, and follow-up conversations are welcome afterward.
