Fact or Fake: Sifting Truth From Fiction 

Guest Speaker: James Underdown

10:30 a.m.

In this age of allegations of “fake news,” viral posts on social media, and increasingly polarized public opinion, how do we decide what to believe?  How do we avoid the echo chamber effect of listening only to those we agree with?  What are some of the ways we all get things wrong?  James Underdown, Executive Director of the Center for Inquiry-Los Angeles and contributor to Skeptical Inquirer and Free Inquiry magazines, will explore these questions this morning.

April 2017
This month we will be focusing on several ideas. We are excited that Spring has arrived, we will be talking about Women’s History Month, Earth Day and of course thinking about all the wonderful holidays these next few months.
 
We will be planting a new garden on the side of the church with both tomatoes and milkweed (butterfly plants) as a way to take care of our earth. If any member of the congregation would like to donate pots, plants, maybe a gift card to Armstrong’s that would be so greatly appreciated! We can’t wait to beautify our garden and give a little back to mother earth. 
 
We are looking for “special guests” to come down to the children’s service for between 10-15 minutes to share a story, help us with a craft or just spend time with the children. We are constantly looking for ways to include our adults in our children’s lives and we think this is a great start. Please feel free to check in with Elizabeth or any of the RE parents to let us know if you are interested.
 
Are you looking for ways to share the holidays of this season with your child?
 
Check out books at the library about Easter, Passover and the spring season
Plant flowers and veggies to share with friends and family
Talk with your children about what holidays are, which holidays your family celebrates and special traditions you may share
 
There are so many ways to welcome the season of change and growth! We look forward to sharing how we celebrate as the month moves on.
 
Happy Spring!
 
Warmly,
Elizabeth S. Brown
RE Coordinator
