Adult RE: Book Club – Centering Room
April 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until May 7, 2019
Adult R.E. presents: Spring Book Club!
Our spring offering for Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. will be two three-week book discussions. Although not required, registration helps us plan. Please sign up on the church website, or contact Ellen Thomas or Lisa Fritsche for more information. It is especially important to know if childcare is needed.
On April 23, 30 and May 7, Melissa Ensign-Bedford will lead a discussion of the national UUA Common Read selection, Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment, edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Nordstrom (Skinner House Books, 2018).
At a time when racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are seen as issues competing for time, attention, and resources, Justice on Earth explores the ways in which the three are intertwined. Those on the margins are invariably those most affected by climate disaster and environmental toxins. The book asks us to recognize that our faith calls us to long-haul work for justice for our human kin, for the Earth and for all life. It invites us to look at our current challenges through a variety of perspectives, offers tools to equip us for sustained engagement, and proposes multiple pathways for follow-up action.
