Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation. Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
The theme of this week's Gathering is ‘Time & Technology’. The internet, email, and social media have connected friends and strangers across the world like never before… while also potentially leading to addiction, political polarisation, the spread of disinformation, a loss of privacy, and plenty of other problems. Somewhere in-between big, simplistic utopian and dystopian narratives about technological progress lie our everyday experiences with technology: the ways it shapes our relationships, our choices, and ourselves in the present moment. New Unity member Rebecca Fiebrink will explore these themes, inviting us to reflect on how our relationships with technology intersect with our values.
