TITLE:   “When Ideology Trumps Compassion”
SPEAKER:   “Dr. Don Musser” 
WORSHIP LEADER:   Kay Gonzales

DISCUSSION: New York Times columnist David Brooks recently juxtaposed two prominent ways that humans have understood life and history.  One way, based on Greek mythology, sees history as a cosmic battle between good and evil.  “Conflict” is the watchword.  A second way, based on Judeo-Christian thinking, emphasizes a humanistic focus on life as we live it daily.  “Compassion” is the key notion.  Much of today’s divisiveness can be understood as a debate between these two orientations. Our future depends on which of these two orientations prevails. 

Our service begins at 11:00 AM. All are welcome. Come early for coffee, snacks and lively conversation with Judy and Tony.
