Adult Religious Education — 24 March 2019

Please join us on Sunday (24 March 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class.  Today’s class topic is “It’s Not Feminism if It’s Not Intersectional.”

Even as we express our gratitude for everything that first and second wave feminists have accomplished, we can still take the time to unpack the critique that these movements were largely for the benefit of white cisgender women (whether intentionally or obliviously).

History suggests a bit of both and both are symptoms of white privilege.

What does feminism mean today and who is at the table?  Join us.

17 March 2019 Worship Service and Religious Education for Children and Youth

Please join us on Sunday (17 March 2019) at 11:00 AM for “Dwelling in Peace … because It Matters” by Rev. Barbara Jarrell.

An important part of the task at hand is to learn how we speak with each other — and more importantly — how we listen to each other within our own walls.

Without this practice, we stand little chance of doing so in the wider world.

We are continuing this season’s focus on peace, social justice, and the interdependent web.

In this season of our church year, we honor our second principle (“justice, equity, and compassion in human relations”), our sixth principle (“the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all”) and our seventh principle (“respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part”).

Religious education classes for children and youth are offered during the 11:00 AM service.  Children and youth attend the first 15-20 minutes of the service and then are dismissed to class.

We will host another “Lunch and Learn” potluck with our Committee on Ministry after the worship service.

Adult Religious Education — 17 March 2019

Please join us on Sunday (17 March 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class.

This morning, we will watch a video of a TED Talk by Robb Willer — “How to Have Better Political Conversations.”

As a social psychologist, Willer has some ideas on how moral values might serve to bridge the ideological divide as opposed to widening it, and how we might talk to each other in ways that better promote mutual understanding.

Join us for the viewing and discussion.
