3rd Sunday – Celebration Hall & Zoom — 9:30-10:30am
Getting to know each other is the purpose of this gathering and to exercise our brain cells a little. At each session, we introduce a topic on social or moral issues. We then allow 7 minutes of silent contemplation during which we develop our thoughts and then we share them with each other. This invariably leads conversation in directions unimagined.
Come join us for this hybrid discussion where everyone’s opinion is welcomed and respected. We have much to learn from each other and our discussions enable us to get to know each other better. This program is open to all and we hope you can join us. Fully vaccinated people are welcome to join us in-person (please bring a mask should someone request it) and others are welcome to join us. Bring a friend. Contact us for more information.
Past Discussion Topics
2023_02_15: When we look up at the stars at night, we see familiar constellations. We have named them. We have stories about them. They have meaning to us.
From other locations in our universe, the stars align differently. The stars that form our constellations do not align the same. There our names have no relevance, our stories no meaning.
Which of the many things we give meaning to, are only relevant from our perspectives?
2023_1_1: Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.
2022_11_20: I do not have a soul. I am a soul and I have a body.
2022_05_15: The real benefit of people who offer alternative suggestions comes less from the ideas they espouse or suggestions they make than from the ways they change how the rest of us think.
They don’t have to be right, just initiate thinking in a broader light.
(Power of US p. 209)
2022_04_17: The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing. (Albert Einstein)
