Mary and Sheila are hosting a once-a-month, one-hour zoom meeting to work through the book Don’t Label Me by Irshad Manji.
Leadership will be shared, with all participants taking turns facilitating, zoom hosting and or notetaking/admin support.
As well as the one hour session, you will be asked to do some homework, including practice, and get together with one or more other people in between our sessions. Each week, the facilitators will come up with discussion questions and the assignment. The group will also meet and share their reflections on a googlegroup.
Date and time: 3rd Mondays 7-8pm on zoom https://tinyurl.com/unitarian-plurals
The book is divided into 10 sections. Each month, September to June, we’ll focus on one of the sections.
Vancouver Public Library have seven copies plus an e-book and downloaded audiobook. I’ve ordered in some from Banyen. (It was listed on their website but was out of stock.) If you want one, let me know. Approximately $30.
Why the name Unitarian Plurals?
Manji proposes that we all adopt the one label “Plural” to emphasize that we are each more complex than the list of our labels.
She’s an engaging, articulate, funny speaker. Search youtube.com if you want to see some interviews. There are lots.
