April 2021 Services & Activities

PaulBrownOn Sunday, April 11, our guest speaker Paul Brown will be presenting, Following the Path of Mindfulness Leads Us to a Specific Type of Activism.

The first time Paul learned the word “bodhisattva”, he resonated with the term. However, understanding enough of the world to be able to engage in a meaningful way took much longer. From his earliest awareness of the goodness of the great teachers through time, Paul has been searching for how to engage in meaningful activism. Based on where he is on his own journey, Paul believes that mindfulness offers us a path to understand where we each fit in the interdependent web of all existence such that we can become an activist that activates others.

About our Speaker: Paul Brown is on a quest to decenter whiteness, lift up Black voices, and eradicate poverty. During the pandemic, Paul helped bring the national Circles anti-poverty model to the Portland Metro region. Paul also runs Cinder, an intentionally community-conscious staffing agency that works with clients to help them implement equity and inclusion initiatives. Cinder’s leadership team is also majority-people of color, as Paul believes we can improve outcomes by reducing the number of decisions made by people who hold systemic power, even in the for-profit space.

EasterOn Sunday, April 4, the presentation will be Easter Resurrection: Then & Now, with Lee Harmon.

Is there a reasonable balance between a literal and a metaphorical reading of the Easter Resurrection? Bible Scholar Lee Harmon discusses early Hebrew expectations of bodily resurrection, what the resurrection stories meant to their tellers in the first-century, and how one Bible story brought comfort to him after his father’s death.

Celebrant: Mary Ann Beggs

Music by Rand Bishop.
