The Social Action Committee in collaboration with Adult Forum is initiating “All Boone UU Reads” Jan. 26th
The Social Action Committee in collaboration with Adult Forum is initiating “All Boone UU Reads” starting Sunday, January 26, 2020. The book is The Faces of Poverty in NC by Gene Nichols. It was published in 2018 so the information is up-to-date and very relevant to the current situation in our state. The SA Committee’s thought is that by reading this book together, the Boone UU community can establish a framework in which to study and discuss how we might plan our outreach going forward. The plan is to read a chapter per week and discuss it each Sunday during the 9:30 am Adult Forum. For Sunday, January 26, Connie Green can email the first chapter to you. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Starting with a kids' story (and a story for adults, as well), Dr. Ray Christian vividly described a childhood experience about him, his dog, and a compassionate fellow human who happened to be white in a time when whites and blacks mixed very little. Dr. Christian continued on the theme of overcoming challenges throughout his life and how storytelling has provided him with a platform to share with others. Learn more about Dr. Christian on the ASU website and listen to his podcast.
