H.A.I.R. - We have finished our discussions of the McLaren book, and for the next two weeks we will be considering the philosophical and ethical implications of a pair of current issues. All are invited to join our discussions from 7:00-8:30 in the chapel.
December 4 - Freedom of speech (triggered by, but not limited to, the recent events at Wilfrid Laurier University)
December 11 - Sexual Harassment (triggered by the recent public attention to sexual misconduct in Hollywood and Washington, and the "me too" movement)
The book club will meet again in the New Year on Wednesday, January 31st at 7 p.m. in the Chapel. The book is to be announced near the end of December as we are planning to get a book club set of 15 books from the Markham Library which we can have out for six weeks. It will depend which of our choices are available at the time of pick-up. Sandra will pick up the books and let people know that they are available for pick-up at the church or will bring them on a Sunday for distribution.
