It's our 7th birthday and the perfect excuse for baking yourself a cake to celebrate!

Our guest speakers, Maia and Greg Coladonato, want to fix something that's broken: our tendency to throw things away when they break, leading to overflowing landfills and lost treasures. At Repair Cafe Mountain View, passionate fixers connect with forlorn owners of broken valuables to change the world one part at a time.

We'll be singing:
Thank You for Being a Friend - Andrew Gold
Kind & Generous - Natalie Merchant
Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac

September 2020 Assembly - Bridging Differences

Join us online, Sunday, 9/13 at 11am. Our speaker will be Randy Lioz from Braver Angels. Randy has made it his life’s work to depolarize conversations we have surrounding politics. Too often we demonize and dehumanize those we don’t agree with about politics, but what if we emphasize curiosity, and even building relationships? Can we actually be more effective advocates for our deeply held beliefs if we hold off on expressing them? Let’s find out!

We will meet on Zoom and have breakout room mingling at 10:30 am, assembly at 11:00 am, and more mingling at noon.

How are Sunday Assembly chapters recognizing Earth Day? SA Atlanta recently uploaded their Climate Change themed April 2019 Assembly. Dr. Kim Cobb, climate scientist and professor from Georgia Tech was the speaker for her third time! She discussed how Climate Change applies to so much more than global temperature: our political climate is hostile to solutions, and our social climate is fragmented and disillusioned.
