  A True Effort to Belong and Befriend

When people harness the power of connecting with others whose lives are different from their own, we all learn just how much more alike we are. With that understanding people can find common ground and friendship. When people find compassion for one another, true transformation can take place. We can find a way to better understand how to work, play, and live together in a world that is better for all of society.

Mollie Reinhart, founder of Befriend, will discuss how we can build a better world, how we can better connect, understand and change.

Join us for this important conversation and opportunity to be in proximity with others who may not look like you and may have had different life experiences than you and yet who you may find have a lot in common with you!

We will provide some main dish items and desserts and if you feel so moved, you're invited to bring a nourishing side dish to share.  

Suggested donation is $20 per person to cover our costs.  

Please join us regardless of your ability to make a donation or bring a side dish.


***REMEMBER (mentioned in newsletter): Bring books to donate with you on April 18th in preparation for our May 16th Summer Reading Book Sale/Fundraiser!

Time to SPRING CLEAN your bookshelves! DONATE your books by and about African Americans and racial justice and healing to CT-VA’s Summer Reading Book Sale to be held at our May 16th Gathering. Bring books to our 3rd Tuesday Gathering on April 18th. If possible insert a slip of paper with 1-2 sentences on why you recommend each book. For more info email Bonnie Dowdy.

AND...There are various volunteer roles you can help out with next Tuesday evening.  Please sign up for something when you register if you are able.  The two areas that we especially need help with are:
  • Arriving by 4:15 pm to help with setting up tables and chairs and then decorating and setting tables
  • Staying until the kitchen and fellowship hall are completely cleaned up (can be as late as 9:15 or 9:30 pm at latest)
Thank you in advance!
