Giving - October 18 Assembly

Most people enjoy giving of themselves, but did you know it is scientifically proven to be beneficial to your life? Living better by helping often! Come out to our next assembly on October 18 (on the third Sunday just this time) and learn about why we should give of ourselves more regularly.

Steve Kurtaugh will be speaking about what he has learned from his work at Ano Nuevo and other volunteer causes. We have childcare and fun activities for the kids and a thriving community. Join us!

August 9 - How Do We Get There From Here?

Sejal H Patel

In the spirit of helping often, Sejal H Patel will speak on The Distance Between Us and Justice.

How far away are we from justice?

That question carries many meanings. We can think about time. How much time it will take before events like wrongful convictions and civil rights violations won't happen anymore? We can think about distance.

Life here in Silicon Valley is geographically far away from places like Selma, Baltimore, and Charleston. We can feel grateful, guilty perhaps but grateful, that what we are reading about in the news is not happening to us. We care about injustice, but we can't do much about it.

Or can we? This talk will explore our proximity to justice - how close we are to it, and what we can do to resist what has been a stubborn undercurrent of our democracy since its inception.
