Working to Make a Difference in Owensboro
We are working to coordinate the efforts of all the justice organizations in the area--so we can all be more efficient with our resources and more supportive of each other.
MEETINGS:  1st Monday of the month @ 6:30 PM.   During the pandemic monthly meetings will be via Zoom, contact Mary Danhauer for details, see Contact Information below. Meetings are free and open to the public. They are hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Owensboro (1UU) located on the corner of Cedar & Parrish.
Meetings usually begin with a brief Quiet Time that includes sitting in silence, listening to a peaceful / inspiring song.
As an educational component of each meeting, we spend some time studying from "Nonviolent Lives: People and Movements Changing the World Through the Power of Active Nonviolence" by Ken Butigan.
Also, members are encouraged to obtain and read "The Spiritual Power of Nonviolence: Interfaith Understanding for a Future Without War" by George W. Wolfe. We are planning to participate in the 9th annual Faith Fest Owensboro this November 2019.
Here is the Power Point presentation from our first meeting (PDF) it will help give you an idea of what we hope to accomplish.
