Children’s RE: This week we will study Josiah Wedgwood, a British Unitarian who founded a famous pottery company.

April 30
5:00 pm Misti Mata presents Oneness by Way of Remembrance. With Worship Associate Anna Garcia.

Misti will lead a discussion of a book titled A Promise Kept to Bear Witness, by holocaust survivor, Joyce Wagner, who is 95 years old today.  Joyce was a teenager when the holocaust began, therefore her story is filled with vivid memories of a time in history we cannot afford to be disengaged from, as if we were viewing that era in black and white.  Joyce’s story brings color /contextual meaning to the past that is vital to  our world today.
Children’s RE: Fannie Farmer was a famous cook who had her own cooking school and published a famous cookbook. She is important for her contributions to understanding nutritional needs and standardizing measurement.  This Sunday we will be studying her contributions.
