“Hot Topics” – Begins October 19

This Fall on the third Thursday of the month, we invite you to gather in the Lounge at 7 pm to discuss a recent podcast. The first one will be “The Pros and Cons of Raising Your Kids with Religion” from CBC’s Tapestry. Broadcast on July 30th, it includes host Ali Hassan, a “cultural Muslim,” expressing his worries that he has raised his kids without religion; Aaron Paquette of Edmonton talking about engaging his children with Cree spiritual traditions; and Reva Smith discussing non-religious rituals and traditions that she hopes will give her kids a sense of Spirit, sacredness, and ethics. After listening to the podcast we will have a chance to share reactions and comments. The second session will be on Thursday November 16 — Ian
