Each week, we will meet at a different church to hear from a different tradition about ways that our views of violence have influenced our spirituality and practices. The hope is that curiosity, respect, and hospitality will help us find unity amid our diversity and expand our thoughts in pursuit of peace.
March 4: East Shore Unitarian Church-10848 Chillicothe Road
During the Season of Lent, East Shore is participating with four other congregations in Kirtland to present an interfaith adult religious education class called “Love, Life and Lent: Perspectives on Non-Violence.” Presenter Seth Bryant of the Kirtland Temple describes the first class this way: “The saying goes ‘sticks and stones,’ but words not only can hurt us, some words spoken and written in the past have incited terrible violence. This class explores how words create worlds, for better and worse, with historical examples including one from Seth’s tradition.” conversation will be facilitated by Rev. Dan Schoonmaker of St. Hubert’s Episcopal Church. East Shore will host.
Please join us for dinner at 6:00 pm, an hour before the service begins. Menus are chosen to be suitable for a variety of diets and preferences. Suggested donation is $5 per person or $12 for a family of 3 or more. Nobody is turned away for lack of funds.
