9:15 Discussion Group Topic:  When Does Free Speech Become Hate Speech?

10:30 Service: --Dan Gribbin  “What Constitutes Our Community?” 

Robert Putman’s study Our Kids: the American Dream in Crisis documents the effects of “the neglect of the commons” –the lack of citizen engagement in our civic life.  When children, especially from low income families, lack mentors and guidance, they are especially vulnerable, and our society as a whole will suffer.

9:15 Discussion Group Topic:

10:30 Service----  Rev. Craig C. Roshaven, “The Larger Circle”    

I believe we live and move in a system so vast that it is beyond imagining, let alone understanding. The connections that caused the universe to come into being and later enabled our distant ancestors in the web of life to move from single cells to multi-cellular creatures, to move from the sea to the land, to move from walking on all fours to creatures with opposable thumbs who are capable of foreseeing one’s death were woven on a loom whose warp is all time and whose woof is all space.

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. . . .  We need not wait to see what others do.”  – Gandhi

9:15 Discussion Group Topic:

10:30 Service--- Rev. Craig C. Roshaven, “God, a Biography”   

Jack Miles, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning book, God, a Biography, invites us to reflect on the uniqueness of the God found in the Tanakh, the Jewish scriptures.  God as revealed in the scripture is difficult to know. He has no past.  He doesn't talk to himself but only to humankind. 

Aside from the account of creation, there are no stories of God acting by himself.  God's only way of pursuing an interest is by interacting with humankind. Again and again, God seems displeased, but sometimes it seems that it is only through being surprised that he can learn what it is he does want.  One scholar suggests that God is like a director of a play whose actors never seem to get it right. He is frustrated with them but doesn't seem to know beforehand what getting it right would look like.  Finally, the actors seem to stumble into the right way, and God is satisfied, at least for the moment.  One might imagine that the point of the play is for humankind to become the image of God.
