As always, this is a fluid group - just drop in!

This fall our gatherings are not our regular Tuesdays.  Mark your calendars!
Oct. 17 (3rd Tuesday)
Nov. 14 (2nd Tuesday)
Dec 5 (1st Tuesday)

Our next gathering will be
Tuesday, October 17, 6:30 PM to eat, 7PM conversation begins

October topic:  Tell us the story of you and your ally (see below for definition).
At 9:30 adult church school, Annaka Sikkink is leading some of us through "Seven Steps to Becoming a Better Ally."  Without sharing personal details about your ally, tell us about what makes that person your ally.  What justice issue do you work on together?  How did you get over awkward moments?  How have you been there for each other?  What has your ally taught you about being an ally?

We'll use Annaka's definition of an ally; you might choose to substitute another word for something that divides us for the word "class."

An ally is a person who seeks to end poverty (or work for justice more broadly) and who partners with people from all (class) backgrounds to work toward that goal.  An ally develops personal, responsible, respectful and mutually beneficial relationships with people from different (class) backgrounds than him/herself.  These relationships are not necessarily friendships, but are at least respectful working relationships bound together by a common goal of ending poverty (working for justice).

What is Life and Faith in Raleigh?  This ever-changing group of CUCCers and friends meets on first Tuesdays to bounce ideas, support and challenge each other, and enjoy good company.  Jane Smith brings an open-ended question connecting the nitty-gritty of life and faith, but prefers when members of the group raise a question they'd like to discuss.

New folks and friends are always welcome.  Come when you can, or come often.  Look for the comma in the vase on our table.

What is said at Life & Faith stays at Life & Faith!  We seek to be a safe place for one another.

Discussion starts at 7PM, so arrive by 6:30 if you want to order food.  We try to model God's generosity by tipping well, whether we order water or a full meal.  The discussion wraps up at 8PM.
