Practicing God-talk Sunday, October 26th during coffee hour
Bill Lippert discusses prison reform issues in Vermont. Bill comes as requested by the Practicing God-talk group from September 28th as they discussed the incarceration rate which is seven times that of Europe. Bill chairs the Judiciary Committee of the Vermont House of Representatives; he is also a member of the joint committee of both houses on prison issues. A biblical reference for this active spirituality is "I was in prison and you visited me." [Matthew 25:36c] To start quickly, trays of donuts and other snacks will be in classroom 2. Pick up your drink on the way in. Child care will be provided for families with children. [Note: The discussion of "Is Everyone a Little Bit Racist?" is postponed to November 23rd.]
