Join us as we welcome Lawrence R Greene. He will lead us in a drum circle. In this drum circle we will also share a conversation about using rhythm and dance as a public service. The call of the drum is found in cultures around the world. Drummers can be holders of sacred space by surrounding the group with balanced intentions.

Everyone is Welcome. No experience necessary. Bring your drums and join in! Some extra drums and percussion instruments will be available for those who don’t bring drums.

Lawrence R Greene is the founder and lead drummer of Ugata, Underground African Themed Arts. He has been leading percussion gatherings for over 12 years in the Ohio River Valley. Lawrence believes that using African musical traditions we can learn the ancient wisdom ways of community building, stress relief and mental clarity.

LOOKING AHEAD: UPCOMING SOCIAL JUSTICE SUNDAYS

Social Justice Sunday is held the first Sunday of every month from 1:00-3:00 p.m. These programs are designed to bring social justice topics that are important to YOU to our space for conversation. If you would like to have a topic that is important to you featured, contact Michelle Wilson.

Here's what is scheduled for upcoming months:

June 3rd – Kat Hawbaker will discuss which social justice issues our congregation as a whole may want to focus on. More details about this event coming soon.

July 1st - Movie and Discussion. We will watch the true story of “Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman” and discuss “Is polyamory a social justice issue?” (The July topic will last longer than two hours due to watching a movie. Plan to stay until 4:00 p.m.)

Aug 5th - Healthcare and Income Disparity (We are still looking for speakers for this topic. If you know of anyone who would make a good speaker on this topic, please let us know.)
