  • March 1:  In the last twenty years, the volume of clothes Americans throw away has doubled– from 7 million to 14 million tons.  That equals 80 pounds per person per year.  The costs to the environment and to human rights continue to grow, as well.  Deb Boisvert of the Eco-Justice Committee will present, “The High Cost of Cheap Clothes.”  Please join us for an introduction to this important topic.”March 8:  The Violence Divine DVD series with John Dominic Crossan will continue.March 15:  Dr. Sarah Neusius’ topic is A Primer on Native American Religion and Spirituality. 

    Popular fascination with Native American beliefs and spiritual practices often treat these as unitary and practiced by all Indians, but actually there were many distinct cultures and beliefs among the Native peoples of North America at European contact, and this is reflected in a variety of traditions recognizable today.  A more accurate understanding appreciates this diversity and recognizes the cultural context of particular beliefs and practices.  In addition, a variety of fascinating religious or spiritual responses to the oppression caused by European settler colonialism are worth noting as is the importance of Pentecostalism and other Christian beliefs among many contemporary Native American tribes.

    March 22:  Sam Kidder will do a session on his series on John Bingham from the Presbyterian Historical Society website.

    March 29:  Youth Sunday and 5th Sunday of the month;
