Adam Renner, our friend

Dear Friends,

Adam Renner, the Rouge Forum Community Coordinator, has died at 40.

Adam was a wonderful friend, teacher, writer, musician, martial artist, and honest, caring man. His courage had taken remarkable forms–from being willing to sacrifice to help others, to always learning, and altering his views, on the path to discover what is true in order to make the world a little better. What could be a more powerful legacy?

As an educator, author, and friend, Adam embodied the interaction of ethical theory and determined practice.

His skills as the Rouge Forum Community Coordinator were exemplary–from gently moving along a meeting when it needed to move, to organizing the 2008 Louisville Forum, to editing the Rouge Forum News, and, above all, being key to forming a caring community where people could bring differing views, share them, and feel not only sane, but valued: family.

We offer our deep sympathy to Adam’s wife, Gina Stiens.

A Service & Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, December 28th, 2010.

Both will be held at Shiloh United Methodist Church, 5261 Foley Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45238

The Service begins at 11:00AM.

The Celebration will be immediately following, 12:00-2:00PM.

Good luck to us, every one.
