January 17th meeting – a little new year’s introspection

 

20170916_125816

Our first meeting of the new year is January 17th, starting with a 6:30 pm potluck at First UCC, 1500 Tiffin Rd., Fremont.

The new year gives us a nudge to reflect on our personal lives.  We can bring the same introspection to our community life in People for Peace & Justice.  Let’s spend a little time at this meeting on the following questions:

  • What draws you most to belong to this peace and justice community?  (The food, right?)
  • What has PPJ accomplished that makes you proud or happy to participate?
  • How would you describe the particular identity or purpose of this group?
  • Why did you start coming to meetings?  And is that still true or is it now something else?
  • What are your hopes for the group?
  • What changes would you like to see?
  • What are we called to do or be in 2018?

We will also reserve a little time to hear a report-back from Josie Setzler and Sr. Paulette Schroeder about their week in Washington, DC with Witness Against Torture, coming up Jan. 7 – 14,  You can follow the Witness Against Torture community’s activism next week at their Facebook page, website, or at Josie’s Facebook page.  #CloseGitmo #StopTorture #ResistIslamophobia

Here’s a poster showing a sampling of what they’ll be up to next week.

    We live in Oberlin but enjoy discovering Sandusky when driving to visit family in Ann Arbor. We might be able to join you.
    I think some of us were together at a Jim Jordan Die-in!
