April 28, 2019, “On Plenitude: Taking Better Care of Ourselves, Each Other, and Our Planet" - Bethany Riddle, Worship Leader
Bethany will explore a number of connected perspectives (including plenitude, minimalism, mindfulness, and sustainability) that serve to challenge consumerism, materialism, and the disconnection endemic to the work-spend cycle of a capitalist society. This will be a hopeful service for a planet and a humankind that is facing many current obstacles to health and well-being. Musicians will be Claudia Jacobs, Tom Pelletier, Melissa Pond and Dan Weymouth.
Humanist Discussion Group Meeting - Tuesday, May 7, 7:00 p.m.
The Humanist Discussion Group meets next at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7 in the Yellow room at the Fellowship. The topic is "What is the Alt-Right?" The Alt Right (short for “alternative right”) is a loosely organized far right movement that emphasizes internet activism (especially memes) and is hostile to both multicultural liberalism and mainstream conservatism. Alt-right ideology combines white nationalism, misogyny, antisemitism, and authoritarianism in various forms and in political styles ranging from intellectual argument to violent invective.
