Freeing Our Imaginations

“Imagination is more important than knowledge,” Albert Einstein said.  Sometimes, what we already know gets in the way of imagining how our lives, our future could be different.  We value reason, and yet reason needs imagination so that we don’t get caught in ruts of thinking we know the problem, that we know the answer, that we see all the angles.  RYSEC Leader Jone Johnson Lewis will speak, and the program will include some time for interacting imaginatively.

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.

Sharing of Responsibility

Donations to the Society for Sunday Programs in January, 2021, will be shared with the American Indian Community House (, a community-based organization which serves the needs of Native Americans residing in New York City.  AICH seeks to improve the status of Native Americans  and to foster inter-cultural understanding.

Please mark your check or online donation “Sunday Programs,” to be sure it’s split between our sharing partner for the month and support for the programs of the Society.
