Sunday June 2, 9:15 in the Vaughan Wing.
By one count there were eleven CUCC members who participated in “Moral Monday” this past week, supporting those who were engaging in civil disobedience and facing arrest by entering the Legislative building to protest the injustices of current legislative activity. Standing across the street in support is something that families, including young people, may consider. On future Mondays, some adults in the congregation may choose to take the next step and risk arrest, but wonder if it is the right thing for them to do. The next Moral Monday will be June 3 (the Legislature will not be in session on Memorial Day). If you are considering taking part and want to know more what it is all about, please come to a meeting in the Vaughan Wing before church on June 2 (starting at 9:15, the regular Forum time) to exchange ideas and information and plan ways we can support each other in this effort. There is a possibility that people who have been arrested in past weeks will be there to describe what they experienced. Meanwhile, if you might be willing to offer overnight accommodations to Moral Monday activists coming from High Country UCC in Boone for the Moral Monday June 3, please contact Jane Smith asap so she can help make connections.
