Christ Church is one of the organizations participating in Circle Conversations to raise awareness of Race as an issue.  Whether or not you attended the first couple of sessions you are invited.

The next meeting of the Christ Church Circle will be after Coffee Hour on
 date to be determined.  
We will continue our conversation on Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and holding 
a town-wide activity.

Rev. Jim Anderson and Helen Newton will serve as keepers of the circle and move deeper into the issue.
