The face of oppression has dominated the news recently. It is seen in the angry faces of people demanding freedom, and in the angry faces of rulers willing to kill to maintain their privileged position. Is the face of oppression still seen here in America? Is it waning as racial minorities gain economic and political clout? Or is its complexion simply changing?
Following a calling to help ensure a positive future, Bill Scarvie has brought his vision of Earth Community to many UU congregations and has also facilitated workshops at congregational, district, and national gatherings. His work is inspired by the writings of David Korten, Joanna Macy, Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme. Bill resides on Bainbridge Island with his wife, Karen, and is a member of the Cedars UU Church.

NOTE: There will be a potluck following the service. Please bring something to share.
WORKSHOP: From 1-3 pm Bill Scarvie will offer a workshop called “Real Security in Hard Times.” He will present the essentials of creating a Resilience Circle (new name for the Common Security Club), a place where people build relationships to increase their personal security in a rapidly changing world. The three components are learning together, mutual aid, and social action. $15 donation; everyone welcome regardless of ability to pay.
