This Week with UUFCF

CommUnity Conversations Continue

This Wednesday, September 11, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm at The Tryon Depot at 22 Depot Street, Robin Edgar will be facilitating Conversations about Compassion & Forgiveness.  In response to the feelings hate and retribution after the 9/11 attacks, The Fetzer Institute initiated a national campaign, “Conversations about Love & Forgiveness,” one of which Robin Edgar facilitated in Charlotte, NC. After four years of conversations, The Fetzer Institute recognized that compassion was a key to forgiveness and initiated “Conversations about Compassion.”

All of our CommUnity Converastions are free and open to the public so I hope you can join any or all of the remaining conversations:

  • Weds Sept 11from 2:00 – 4:00 pm: Compassion & Forgiveness with Robin Edgar
  • Weds Sept 18from 2:00 – 4:00 pm: Forgiveness for Good with Lyndon Harris and Robin Edgar
  • Weds Sept 25from 2:00 to 5:00 pm: Better Angels Depolarization Skills workshop with Del Kimbler will teach the discipline of non-polarizing attitudes and words about the political “other”. (Note: this is a three-hour workshop.)

 

Our Next Fellowship on Sunday, September 15, 2019

Lyndon Harris will be sharing about “Four Little Girls.” On September 15, 1963, following the forced desegregation of schools in Alabama, four African American girls were killed in the cruel bombing, by the KKK, of the 16th Street Baptist Church. 56 years have passed and we’ve come a long way. But we still have a way to go. In this reflection we will consider developments in civil rights, from the early sixties to the rise of Black Lives Matter and the amazing work of Bryan Stevenson and the Equal Justice Initiative.

 

Best regards,
Robin Edgar

President of the UUFCF Board
