The Lifespan RE Committee and the Commissioned Lay Ministers are sponsoring a small discussion series on Building Beloved Community. Offered quarterly, each session from the Touchstones program offers an opportunity to explore a single topic.
According to the Touchstones curriculum, “Beloved Community is not accidental. It occurs through intention and must be thoughtfully nurtured. M. Scott Peck characterized pseudo-community as one that is superficial and in which people look at each other with the hard eyes of judgment. Beloved Community requires the soft eyes of respect. It is a place where we do not need to think alike to love alike.”
Here are the topics and dates for our Building Beloved Community program:
March 12 Authority / Leadership
June 11 Generosity
September 10 Democracy
December 10 The Divine / God
Each meeting will be held in the EEE Room, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. The Lifespan RE Committee will be glad to answer any questions.
Come join us to explore Building Beloved Community!
