Selection: “Why Religion?: A Personal Story,” by Elaine Pagels. Discussion to be led by Jan McKae of ACOR. You’re welcome to attend even if you haven’t read the book.
“Why is religion still around in the twenty-first century? Why do so many still believe? And how do various traditions still shape the way people experience everything from sexuality to politics, whether they are religious or not? In Why Religion? Elaine Pagels looks to her own life to help address these questions.”
Work somtimes involves sorting donated food to be distributed to hungry people in our community. Sometimes we fill "backpacks" for needy school children to take home over weekends, when school meals aren't available to them. Dress warmly because the warehouse can be chilly. There is no provision for storing valuables so please leave them in your car.
Note: No open-toed shoes are allowed in the warehouse.
