CURRENT OFFERINGS:

 

  • Wednesday Night Book Study @ 6:30 on Zoom. Beginning on July 6 at 6:30 on Zoom, join a discussion of Friedman's Fables, by Edwin H. Friedman. These tales “offer fresh perspectives on familiar human foibles and reflect the author’s humor, pathos, and understanding.” Zoom link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6467052376. To join by phone: 646-558-8656, meeting ID 6467052376.
  • Summer 2022, the Justice and Advocacy Committee is reading Heather McGhee’s The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How WeCan Prosper Together, which explores how racism and zero-sum attitudes are used in discussions about the common good. Our first discussion on The Sum of Us helped us better understand “zero sum thinking,” which says that when one group advances, another group loses. Thinking like this influences support for policies that would improve equity. The truth of the matter is, policies that help people of color will help white people too. The metaphor we liked was – when everyone gets an equal piece of the pie, the pie grows! Our next discussion will be on Sunday, August 7 after worship. Please read up to chapter 4 for this. All are welcome. Further scheduled meetings will be listed in the Bulletin.
