Morning session • 10 am to 12 noon
After a short introduction, participants are invited to peruse books selected from our library on issues such as police, prisons, missing women, residential schools, artists, and racism, and identify passages that touch their own lives. Participants may also bring their own books or other reading material. There will be time to share our reflections, and worship sharing can carry over into the lunch period.
Lunch • 12 noon to 1 pm
A simple lunch will be provided on site. Friends wishing to bring their own food may do so.
Afternoon session • 1 pm to 3 pm
The afternoon session will include a panel discussion of the issues. Participants will share their
thoughts and experiences, and there will be time for worship sharing and questions.
No registration nor any formal commitment is required, but please advise one of the organisers if you are planning to come, so we can provide lunch for you.
