OUT OF BALANCE: #Me Too; Kavanaugh and Gender Inequality
BRATTLEBORO, VT – On Mon. Dec. 3, 2018 from 7:00 pm -8:30pm in the Upstairs Meeting Room the Social Justice Ministry of St. Michael’s invites you to join us as we together think about issues of gender inequality and how we might respond. The evening will be led by The Rev. Lise Sparrow, Pastor of Guilford Church and John Bouffard, a national consultant working with Non-Profits for the past 20 years.
Last month as we in the Justice Ministry were planning for the year, some of us, responding to the televised Hearings and their treatment of women and at the same time recognizing the growing # Me Too movement, suggested we dedicate an evening to explore both in some depth. Hence, OUT OF BALANCE: #Me Too; Kavanaugh and Gender Inequality was planned and scheduled for Dec. 3 at 7:00 pm.
We do this because out baptismal vows “to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to love your neighbor as yourself” demand that we take on such issues and look for new ways to relate to each other.
The evening will look at issues of structural and personal male privilege, at little ways we perpetuate this imbalance without even thinking about it and at what we can do to recognize and change. We will be able to ask questions and share stories. This is an evening for men and women to consider what has to change “to respect the dignity of every human being.” (BCP Baptismal Service p. 305)
Decaf coffee and treats will be served.
Monday, Dec. 3, 2019 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, 16 Bradley Ave., Brattleboro, VT. (802) 254-6048
