Classism–Is It Still with Us?

Led by Mike Greenwood with reflections by Neil Chippendale and Ellen Flight and followed by our monthly Congregational Conversation in place of Social Hour to continue our exploration of classism. We shared our collection with All Souls Palatka (Palatka, FL), a new congregation that struggled for almost 10 years in their conservative part of Florida to reach critical mass and finally got there last spring despite COVID. Watch a recording of the service posted on You Tube here.
