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 ‘Haunted by the Past’. It’s not only individuals who carry the burden of the past; whole peoples and nations do too. The actions that seem irrational today can start to make more sense in light of the realities and myths of the past - stories that become deeply embedded in a culture and a sense of communal identity.
We’ll explore how nations and peoples are haunted by the past, how this can help us understand their current beliefs and actions, and how we can use this understanding to help make a better world.
