Join other UU crafters for fun and fellowship. Bring a craft project to work on while being in the company of like-minded people.
Breathtaking changes in technology are posing stark challenges to our constitutional values in democracies around the world. From free speech to privacy, from liberty and personal autonomy to the right against self-incrimination, basic constitutional principles are under stress from technological advances unimaginable even a few decades ago -- let alone in the founding era. Adult Religious Exploration began the 24-week series, "Privacy, Property, and Free Speech: Law and the Constitution in the 21st Century". This course identifies the range of options that judges, technologists, legislators, and citizens have as they struggle to respond to technological shifts. Join us Sundays at 9:45 AM. Childcare is available upon request.
Dr. Charles Merrifield will present, "Psychology of Cults." He will explore how cults recruit and retain members. How are people recruited into cults that control their time, money, sleep, relationships, and thinking? Is there a way out?
Zen Friends is taking a hiatus. The next meeting will be the second Monday in July.
We welcome all at our brownbag lunches on the third Friday of every month. This month the selection is "My Ruby Slippers" by Tracy Seeley. My Ruby Slippers tells the story of a woman with an impassioned if vague sense of mission: to find the meaning of home.
