Our monthly meeting is this Thursday, the 9th, at the Community Church at 7:00. It’s going to be another interesting one with a presentation by three Sisters of St. Joseph who have responded to the call to help migrants at the Texas/Mexico border. They’ll show us a video of the actual situation down there so that we can gain a clearer understanding of the obstacles those who are seeking asylum face and learn how we might help them. Please join us. We should all be aware!
Also, for those of you who are interested in our Diversity Discussion Group, the book Just Mercy is waiting for you at the library. Please find it at Reader’s Services upstairs. Just ask for the Action Ridge book. I have to be truthful. It’s a disturbing read; but we Action Ridge folks are able to face the truth about what happens to people of color all to often in our country, at the border and in the courts. So pick up the book and join the discussion on January 22nd at 7:00 at the church.
Forge on, in spite of all that frightens us. Nan
