Immigration as a Moral Issue/ Library/Room 103

 Immigration is a contentious and complex issue. This class will offer a broad overview of some of that complexity by exploring causes, history, and economics of migration and immigration, as well as looking at issues of human rights and security.  The class will finish by weighing a number of the different solutions that have been offered.

Cakes for the Queen of Heaven | Parlor, Room 101

1st & 3rd Sundays 

Part 1 of Cakes for the Queen of Heaven, Ancient Times, is an ongoing series exploring evidence of Goddess worship in prehistoric cultures as well as the ways elements of women’s lives today are influenced by the cultural patriarchy and Judeo-christian values. The primary question building the class is: How would your life have been different if, when growing up, the Divine had been imagined as female? Interactive activities, personal sharing of experiences and beliefs, as well as community-building are central to this women only course.
