Using poetry timeless and local, deep and amusing as inspiration. Christian Hayden will lead a reflection activity that asks everybody to contribute and create as a community. (Bring a favorite poem if you can!)
Christian is a member of the Philadelphia Ethical Society and works as a community educator with a domestic violence organization in Philadelphia. Inspired by the colloquy, Christian sought to bring the technique to communities of color while also expanding the technique to include movement as a means of enhancing dialogue. He spent three years as an Americorps member and completed a year of service in Ghana with the Humanist Service Corps. He looks to expand Ethical Culture with his work as a Mossler Fellow of the American Ethical Union, the umbrella organization of Ethical Societies.
January theme: Intention. What does it mean to be a person of intention? What does it mean to be a community of intention?
11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another. We start the formal program at 11:15 and usually end about 12:30. After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks. Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!
