Members actively engaged with “Immigrant Advocacy” groups in Barron County, most especially as they involve the Somali families in Barron, will offer an informational Forum at the Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalist church, 9:15 a.m. April 7th. Some of the challenges confronted within the community and ways we might be of assistance will be considered.
The Service at 10:30 a.m. will feature guest speaker Dr. Jane Shoup, Professor Emerita of Biological Sciences at Purdue University, Indiana. Noting that “our most unique trait as a species, our clever brain, has gotten us into a lot of trouble,” Dr. Shoup attempts to lift our spirits in sharing thoughts on how our species might cope with the world we now live in, as we “Hitchhike Towards Sapience”–the quality of being wise.
Nourishment for body and soul always follows the service with fellowship and light refreshments; all are invited to participate.
