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 ‘The Waning of Warfare’. As hard as it may be to believe (given all the bloodshed in the world), war and its destruction is much less common than it used to be. In fact, humanity has become dramatically less violent and more tolerant over our history. This Remembrance Sunday, we’ll ask why this fact is so hard to believe, and what it might mean for the future.
