UPCOMING ADULT EDUCATION EVENTS:
Three Clergy Present: “The Illusion of Inclusion: Welcomed, Welcoming and Sometimes, Not.”
Tuesday, February 9, 7:00 PM
Panel: Rev. Msgr. Patrick S. Brennan, St. Mary’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception; Rabbi Michael Z. Cahana, Senior Rabbi, Congregation Beth Israel; The Very Rev. Nathan LeRud, Dean, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral
Three clergy from three of the major NW Portland religious institutions gather annually to discuss and teach about issues from their unique religious perspectives. “Catholic, Protestant and Jew” is not the set-up for a joke – it is a fun and serious investigation of issues that affect us all. Inclusion and Welcoming are important words in our religious practice these days. But how do we define ourselves if there is no distinction? America is a land of religious inclusion – but it hasn’t always been. Exclusion is also a part of our history. Join three religious leaders as they discuss history, heresy and even some hypocrisy.

Help us Heal the World!
The Social Action Committee is an OPEN committee and recruiting new members! All are welcome. No need to be appointed, or elected, or even sign up. Just show up our meetings to become a committee member and help with strategizing and planning fun and worthwhile events. In addition to our favorite annual events, like the High Holiday Funds for Food Drive and Mitzvah Day, we have many exciting new activities that need volunteers throughout the year. We are also excited to announce that we have started an advocacy arm that includes education and lobbying on issues of social justice, hunger, and gun violence prevention.
Come to our next meeting to get all the details and get involved. We meet on the first Wednesday of every other month from 5:00- 7:00 PM in the Shirley and Herbert Semler Board Room. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 3rd.
