In the spirit of helping often, Sejal H Patel will speak on The Distance Between Us and Justice.
How far away are we from justice?
That question carries many meanings. We can think about time. How much time it will take before events like wrongful convictions and civil rights violations won't happen anymore? We can think about distance.
Life here in Silicon Valley is geographically far away from places like Selma, Baltimore, and Charleston. We can feel grateful, guilty perhaps but grateful, that what we are reading about in the news is not happening to us. We care about injustice, but we can't do much about it.
Or can we? This talk will explore our proximity to justice - how close we are to it, and what we can do to resist what has been a stubborn undercurrent of our democracy since its inception.
Doors open at 10:30am for coffee and snacks, and at 11:00am on the dot we will have great talks, live music and secular celebration. Stick around afterward for food.
We will be collecting coats. Please bring any new or gently-used warm jackets or coats.
Come Together Right Now
Equality. What does that word really mean to you? We have seen love win in the Supreme Court, but has hate really lost? Charleston was a poignant reminder that communities remain divided. Because we are a secular congregation, Sunday Assembly Silicon Valley can bring all types of people together to live better, help often, and wonder more.
Celebrate life with us on June 14th! “Man in Progress – A Conversation on Redefining Manhood and Family.” Our guest speaker will be Lester Deanes, assistant dean at Santa Clara University’s Office of Student Life.
This month, we welcome Professor Marilin Colon whose talk is "On Being Wrong: Admitting (and Even Embracing) Fallibility."
