 9:15 Discussion Group, Topic:  

10:30 Service: —  Dr. Dan Gribbin, “Richard Wright: An Amazing Life Journey” 
Richard Wright was one of the most prominent African-American writers of the 20th century, a man whose career exemplifies the pressures inherent in writing about race in America.  Having left the South during the Great Migration, Wright endeavored, from the late 1930s on, to give America  and the world a true sense of the tragic struggle of blacks in America.  His self-exile in France speaks volumes about the pressure he was under to hew to the demands of the politics of time, pressure coming from both sides of the racial divide.  
Service Leader: Denise Carter

9:15 Discussion Group, Topic:  “What the discussion group means to me."
10:30 Service: — Rev. Kathy Rickey, “Moral Imagination and Risking the Impossible”    Contemporary ethicist, Sharon Welch speaks to the Ethics of Risk which is the practice of struggling for a better world even when there is no guarantee of improvement in our lifetime. To give up the struggle, she says, is the death of our moral imagination. How do we stay in struggle?                                    Service Leader: Rita Scheeler

9:15 Discussion Group, Topic: 
10:30 Service: — Cliff Jackson, “Aphantasia: When the Mind’s Eye is Blind”                                                                              The world changed for Cliff  when he found out he has Aphantasia— the inability to form mental images. Recent research has revealed a continuum or wide variation among individuals in their ability to visualize familiar objects or people.  Cliff will share facts, findings and his own experiences related to Aphantasia.  He will explain the test and bell curve so that anyone who is interested can see where they fall on that continuum. He hopes to share new meaning to the UU phrase: ”We need not think alike to love alike.”
