Inclusion is more than looking diverse — it’s also about being committed to issues that matter to people with diverse backgrounds.

How do we make real our long commitments to such issues as working to end racism, and working for LGBTQIA+ equality? How do we communicate our expectation of justice and equality to the world?

Our Leader, Jone Johnson Lewis, will reflect on this topic, then lead us in a special ceremony in honor of International Peace Day and also in honor of our commitment to a more just and inclusive world.

Ethics for Children meets concurrently with our Sunday programs. Please join us!

Music by Lindsey Wilson.

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, though this Sunday the special ceremony that may go past 12:30 (no judgment if you leave early).  After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks.  Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!  

September's monthly theme is expectation. Words against skyline, farmland with rising sun.Our Ethics Matters theme for September is Expectation: what we think about the future can shape what we do in our lives, our relationships, the world.
