    “Impressions from 30 Days in China” will be the subject when Tracey Tapp speaks.

    The free meeting will start with a 30-minute silent meditation at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King Episcopal Church parish hall, at 480 N. Co. Rd. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and follows no religion.

    In the spring of 2016, Tracey Tapp spent a month in China–-10 days as a faculty member with Pepperdine University, and 20 days touring China with her husband, Jim, and his sister.

    During her visit, Tapp took five internal flights, visited eight-plus cities, and spent four days cruising on the Yangtze River. Highlights included visits to a village elementary school and a teachers college, a home visit with a family relocated due to the construction of the Three Gorges Dam, and the Yungang Grottoes – a Buddhist temple from the 5th and 6th centuries consisting of 51,000 Buddha statues carved into caves and grottoes.

    In her talk, Tapp will share her impressions of Chinese culture, politics, and spiritual and family life. She’ll also teach us some Chinese!

    A native of Southern California, Tapp moved to Macon, Ga., in 2000, before coming to Destin in 2007. She is a management consultant and coach, helping organizations and leaders improve teamwork and effectiveness.

    She holds a B.A. degree in political economy from the University of California at Berkeley, and a master of science degree in organization development (MSOD) from Pepperdine University, where she is currently a supporting faculty member in the MSOD program.

    The evening will conclude with a short guided meditation. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. Contact nancyjames@embarqmail.com for information.

    Although the ECMS generally meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month, it is meeting on the second and fourth Thursdays in September because the first Thursday occurs so early.
