The SALT Class meets weekly in the corner of the Social Hall to discuss various topics and books. Currently, the study is based on the book Our Only World, Ten Essays by Wendell Berry – a farmer, poet, and essayist - who for over 50 years has been America’s “eloquent advocate for the planet, for our families, and for the future of our children and ourselves.” Written over the course of the last 5 years, these essays confront “head-on the necessity of clear thinking and direct action” in the face of “the planet’s environmental problems.” All are welcome to join the conversation in the southeast corner of the social hall.
All are welcome to join in this discussion group. The Sunday class begins at 9:10am.
