A book discussion led by the Rev. Amy Rowland, UUCB Assistant Minister: Tuesdays, March 4, 11, & 18, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
In this 3-week discussion group, we will explore the inventive rethinking of moral frameworks presented in Jonathan Haidt’s “The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion.”
In this book, Haidt challenges us to rethink the role that reason plays in our decision process (it’s less than you might think, or wish!)
He explores how moral groundings, which differ regionally, impact what we believe counts as ‘moral.’ And he presents six moral foundations that he claims help to explain why liberals and conservatives have such difficulty entering into meaningful dialogue.
This three-session workshop will involve a discussion of the book and exploration of these moral frameworks and our decision-making processes.
Participants will need a copy of the book by Jonathan Haidt.
Please read the first four chapters before the first class.
Treasures at UUCB and Tales from Our History
Have you ever wondered about the story behind the copper doors outside Howell’s office, or the stained glass window in the sanctuary or where our grand piano came from? Or what the church was like in the 60’s, or 80’s or 00’s? If so, plan to attend a 3-session class On Monday evenings in March (3/10, 3/17, 3/24) when Tessa Davis will lead a class that will give you the answers to these questions and more about UUCB’s past and our building’s art treasures. Sessions will be from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at UUCB.
