Join the Adult Education group in reading and discussing A Paradise Built in Hell by Rebecca Solnit from February 21 through March 28.  Adult Education discussions are Sundays at 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. via Zoom

The book reviews five major disasters, from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It shows how what actually happens in a disaster is very different from what most people think and believe.  To quote the book jacket, people don’t simply “rise to the occasion . . . they do so with joy.”   What sparks this joy?  What are its implications for our everyday lives?  Do we need a disaster in order to uncover the generosity of the human spirit?  The group will explore these and other questions raised by Solnit from 9:15 to 10:20 each Sunday morning.

Join us for afinal discussion of My Grandmother’s Hands: Radicalized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies. Adult Education discussions are Sundays at 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. via Zoom from January 3 – February 14.

In this book, therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology. He proposes that racism is embedded in the hearts, souls, and reflexes of both blacks and whites in American society and that the trauma inflicted on many is harmful to all. Menakem helps readers get inside the Black experience to encounter everyday threats and the responses of fighting, fleeing, or freezing in order to begin the healing process. This enables us to understand one another better, to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide, and to build a stronger community.
