Living with Integrity Book Group

We are reading Living with Integrity--Unitarian Values and Beliefs in Practice, edited by Rev Kate Whyman.

Each meeting discusses a chapter of the book. In this meeting we will discuss the chapter by Paul Kenyon called "Including 'the other'".

The book is a collection of Unitarian women and men, ministers and lay people reflecting on how their faith and values affect their daily lives.  They write about navigating relationships, bringing up children, coping with loss and death; ways of engaging with the wider world, including the workplace and politics; and responding to urgent global issues, such as migration and abuse of the environment.  Each chapter ends with questions to prompt readers to reflect on their own experiences.

Cafe Connect - Death Cafe

Led by Lynne Markey

On the coattails of Dying Matters Week (8-14 May), we are running a 'Death Cafe', which is an opportunity to talk openly and frankly about death, so often a taboo subject.  Join us around a comforting table of delicious things to eat and drink--so life affirming--and say what's on your mind, and listen to others.  There is no set agenda, and everyone will have an opportunity to speak.

Living with Integrity

This will be the first monthly meeting to discuss Living with Integrity--Unitarian Values and Beliefs in Practice, edited by Rev Kate Whyman.  A range of Unitarian women and men, ministers and lay people reflect on how their faith and values affect their daily lives.  They write about navigating relationships, bringing up children, coping with loss and death; ways of engaging with the wider world, including the workplace and politics; and responding to urgent global issues, such as migration and abuse of the environment.  Each chapter ends with questions to prompt readers to reflect on their own experiences.

We will meet on the 2nd Sunday of the month before the service to discuss a chapter of this book.  For those who would like to purchase a copy, it is available from Essex Hall (Unitarian HQ tel 020 7240 2384) at the price of £8.50
