WHY:  Because justice, compassion, equality, peace and truth are the core of the Gospel message in every place and time 

WHAT:  We will ask how faith guides our response to the era we live in? How do we listen to, affirm, support, and encourage one another when we experience profound uncertainty and challenging transition?  What are our options for political, legislative, and social action in 2017?  How do we ground ourselves in God’s presence and a faith community?
There will be time for sharing, group discussions, and prayer
