Check out this great Adult Education discussion group meeting on Sunday mornings. Some weeks the group watches TED Talks together, while other weeks presenters bring in interesting and inspiring ideas. We set aside time every week to discuss these issues. Topics cover a wide range of issues and ideas — which open us up to the encouraging work of people who address problems and the possibility of our own power to participate in change. These presentations and the conversations that follow will help us find Spirit in every facet of life. Watch our website and Facebook page for what’s coming up each week!

Wake Up America — we are better than this! by Congressman Elijah Cummings
Presented by Os Flores

In a powerful and wide-ranging discussion, Congressman Elijah Cummings implores Americans to hold a mirror to ourselves and ask if we like what we have become.

Cummings then asserts that we should throw out the labels that divide us and focus on being Americans — and that it is our duty to leave our democracy intact for future generations.
