CANCELLED – Sunday Platform – Intergenerational Spring Festival: Spring’s Mindful Awakening
March 15, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Notice: Due to the coronavirus outbreak, out of an abundance of caution this event has been cancelled. Please keep an eye on our website for updates about all future events. Thank you!
This inter-generational platform will nurture buds of justice and peace, and cultivate the “inner-blossoming” of all people through rejuvenating communal experiences, including story, song, and mindfulness, both serious and playful.
Hosted by Leader Dr. Richard Koral and Youth and Family Programs Coordinator Audrey Kindred.
This week’s shared charity, My Sister’s Place (MSP), provides a hotline, a domestic violence shelter, and most recently, DC’s first Batterer-Intervention group. MSP offers a full continuum of care from emergency shelter through transition-to-permanent housing, providing clinical counseling, case management, and comprehensive services to empower survivors to recover and thrive. MSP also provides training, case consultation, and advocacy to engage communities to
prevent violence and abuse.
Presider: Leader Dr. Richard Koral
FREE and open to the public.
Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings usually begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest. Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Ethical Culture philosophy. A collection basket is passed and money is shared between the Society and a charity selected for that day. While contributions are always appreciated, Sunday meetings are free and open to the public. Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
