Community members are invited to attend "A Gathering for the Dispossessed & Brokenhearted," a forum to reflect on the spiritual, social, and communal impact of the recent General Election.
The event is intended especially for those who feel angry, sad, distraught, dispossessed, despairing, or simply deeply troubled following the election.
The event is free and will be held in the sanctuary at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 24 Varsity Street (at South Broad St., opposite Cardinal Drive-In), in Brevard on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 5:00 p.m. The event will end no later than 6:30 p.m.
Local ministers, including the Rev. Ian Maher of UUTC, the Rev. Dr. Carter Heyward, the Rev. Sheila Mooney and the Rev. Rob Field, will offer reflections about the implications of the election results. A generous amount of time will be reserved for those in attendance to share their perspectives.
At the end of the evening, suggestions will be made on how we might embody confidently our commitments to social justice and community healing. Members of the Rainbow Alliance, the NAACP, the Center for Spiritual Wisdom and other groups committed to diversity, non-violence and social justice will be present.
