Stream clean-up and Zoom Colloquy

  • Sunday, April 16, 2023
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

NOTE: There are two events happening simultaneously

Stream clean-up for Sunday School and Zoom only Colloquy for others.

      Lets get those ethical kids outside and take care of the Earth by cleaning up a local stream. 

Wear some rubber boots and old clothes and go directly to the great outdoors with your child at 10:45 am.  (Location will be sent via email) 

Trash bags, rubber gloves and bottled water will be provided by your hosts, The Ballandersons. 

Please register so we know how many kids to expect.  We will have a pizza party al fresco after the event, so an accurate headcount is necessary.  

*Bringing a clean, dry change of clothes is recommended, including socks*

Colloquy was created at the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island by Arthur Dobrin, the Leader Emeritus of the Long Island congregation. Since that time many societies, including the Northern Virginia Ethical Society have incorporated colloquy into its offerings.

Format: Each Colloquy discussion centers on a particular theme selected from Arthur Dobrin’s book, Spelling God with Two O’s. Groups consider such topics as awareness, serenity, character, transitions and friendship. Ellen will announce the theme at the start of the hour. There will be time for reflection, then each person has a chance to speak about their reflections.
